supporting a club from a small league (Hajduk Split - Croatia), I have the same dilemma

At the end of the day as hard as it is, for small leagues like Scotland or Croatia its better to support all the clubs in Europe, the higher the coefficiant for the league the more spots you get and you can even skip the qualifiers. Its very frustrating for Hajduk to have to play teams from the EPL, Serie A or La Liga for the QUALIFYING ROUNDS We went from 2 teams potentially in the CL to now all of our clubs starting their European season in July and having to go through 2-3 rounds of qualifying which for the Europa League clubs means beating teams from the top leagues just to get in

Re: UEFA Champions/Europa League 2012-13 Thread

Anyway a little late but here is my thoughts on yesterday's games...

Bayern didn't play their best match at all but still won 3:1 at the Emirates, enough said. It was too easy for Bayern and expected much better from Arsenal. They had a bright start in the 2nd half and could have equalized through Giroud but in all reality Bayern were the much better team and could have scored more goals. It could get ugly in Munich, but I believe Bayern will rest many players and they have some yellow card troubles as well

Porto-Malaga wasn't a great game but Porto deserved to win. They will probably be angered they couldn't score the second goal and this result still gives Malaga a decent chance to progress despite not scoring an away goal. Malaga had a very disappointing approach to this match, very defensive and only had one shot on target. Isco had a poor game. I still think Porto are the favorites to progress, pretty much if they score in Malaga which I think they can do, they are in the drivers seat

As for today, Barcelona will progress in a two-leg affair with Milan but Milan often give them some problems. Also Milan is in much better form right now than what they were during the group stage where they struggled to even get out the group. Gala-Schalke was a 50-50 tie for me when the draw came out but now I think Gala is the favorites, mostly because of Schalke's awful form rather than Gala's signings. I don't think Drogba is even starting today anyway

Re: UEFA Champions/Europa League 2012-13 Thread

Holy fuck if that's legit. Amazing run regardless of tonights results.

I wonder what the cashout value on that would be right now and I wonder how pissed that dude will be when Barcelona are the team to let him down.

*Edit: That betting slip is actually one hundred million to one. Thought he had put £1 on instead of 1p.*

Fancying a 1-1 between AC and Barca. Will stick my neck out and boldly predict Messi will get Barca's goal.
Absolutely no idea what to think about Galatasaray and Schalke; 3-1 to the home side just for the atmosphere.

Schalke is so bad right now, I don't think they will get a draw or a win away.

Fuck even I am super nervous for that guy now. If Milan score, I'm going to be gutted for that guy.

I'm with the Gala crowd. Can't see Schalke getting a draw.
