(UEFA Champions League)   Matchday 3 of the Champions League group stage begins today and continues Wednesday. One match at noon, all others at 2:45 ET. Plenty of nail-biters, plenty of easy wins, but they're all going to be exciting to watch   (uefa.com) divider line 139

Today should be fairly simple, tomorrow's matches seem a lot more exciting.

I'm hoping Bayern are playing better than they did last match, but having just broken the record for most consecutive wins out of the gate in the Bundesliga, I think they're going to be on a pretty nice high riding into this match. I've only seen Lille play once and they did not impress me. However, as lasts game proves, Bayern have dropped the ball against easy wins many a time.

Spartak Moscow vs Benfica should be interesting as well (that is today's noon game) I don't think any of the others will be too grand, but should be fun to watch, I love a killing just as much as a close match.


Tomorrow's noon game is Zenit vs Anderlecht. Again we're looking at the same group, Ajax vs Man City and Borussia Dortmund vs Real Madrid.

Arsenal vs Schalke should be interesting as well, looking forward to catching some of that if I can.

I can't find the Arsenal match listed for FSC or FS+. WHAR ARSENAL MATCH?

No it doesn't subby, it starts today and continues tomorrow. Europa Cup is on Thursday. Completely different tournament, innit.

Come on reds, don't get sloppy today against Braga just because we have Chleski coming up on Sunday.

I dun got my days mixed up. Can I be excused from ridicule if I admit to being ill and just having come off of brain numbing midterms?

Mods please fix? :(

Probably going to miss most of the United game depending on how long my meeting goes with my adviser. Hoping that they win by a lot or at least have a comfortable lead in the beginning.

Easy wins are not exciting to watch.

It's a definite glamour match today against Barcelona and of course a massive uphill battle the whole way. I'm hoping to see a strong performance from the bhoys and would be thrilled to walk away with a draw.

I think Benfica is going to equalize if the game keeps going like this.

Today's? They will be nowhere as good as tomorrow's games but I think BATE and Valencia has potential, and while most would disagree I've gotta say I see some potential in the Celtic side against Barcelona. These matches are pretty one-sided today. I'll be watching Bayern but I'm not expecting much in terms of a challenge, I'm only watching that match as Bayern are my favourite team.

Tomorrow: Arsenal vs Schalke, Ajax vs Man City will both be spectacular but Borussia Dortmund vs Real Madrid will definitely take the cake and will tell you a lot about who's likely to win this thing.

2 minutes into the Bayern match and the commentator already believes every Bayern move is a Toller Idee. A bit optimistic :P

Yup, watch the thread too, if once of the other games starts getting exciting you'll find out here too!

Things are already getting interesting.

Chelsea is is down by 1 against Donetsk and Braga has already gone ahead of Manchester United.

i would agree with this, although i think the lille v bayern match will be good. i think bayern will win, but i think it will be a good match. i also think the utd v braga match has good upset potential, although as a disclaimer i am typing this with braga out to an early lead. but i'm watching that and watching lille v bayern on tape.

there is a shakhtar player named RAT!
 
2012-10-23 02:52:57 PM  
Anyone know which person in the box got owned by the Braga player? I had my headphones off (streaming the game) so I missed who it was.

Stimied in a Rut: Anyone know which person in the box got owned by the Braga player?


well, it was a 1 v 3, so basically, it was all three of them.
 
2012-10-23 03:01:56 PM  
I know Ribery is French and likes to dive, but they really are going for him tonight.
 
2012-10-23 03:05:28 PM  
Lahm taken down in the box, penalty shot for Bayern!

Ohhhhhh. Wow.

Cluj Napoca has taken a lead over Galatasaray as well.
 
2012-10-23 03:12:49 PM  
Barca has basically been playing without a back 4 for the past month.
 
2012-10-23 03:13:52 PM  
Man United pulls one back
