FIRST ROUNDS SURPRISE EUROPES ELITE
Their is always a buzz of excitement when the Champions League kicks off. The first legs in Europes Elite competition got underway with a few shocks along the way. Basel beat Bayern last night 1-0 and Napoli beat Chelsea 3-1. In the freezing conditions of Moscow Real Madrid came away with a 1-1 draw but a crucial away goal. Its always tough to draw the Russian teams early on. The weather is horrific.
Marseile beat the hapless Inter 1-0 and should be comfortable in the 2nd Leg. Inter since appointing Ranieri have been terrible and as Juve fan Im actually happy about that.
The two strongest teams of the round were AC Milan who thumped Arsenal or the madressah lighties as I call them 4-0. Thats Europe for Wenger. Goodbye. Zlatan Ibrahimovic was in top class form as he inspired Milan to a 4-0 rout.
And ofcourse theres Barcelona and Messi. Need I say more……………Lets see what the 2nd Legs have to offer.
