Champion League 2011/2012 Group Phase
Yesterday, I was looking checking at the outcome of the draw from the Champion League Group phase; who would be put together in the same group. In summary, the result is provided below.
Group A: Bayern Munich, Villarreal, Manchester City, Napoli
Group B: Inter Milan, CSKA Moscow, Lille, Trabzonspor
Group C: Manchester United, Benfica, Basel, Otelul Galati
Group D: Real Madrid, Lyon, Ajax, Dinamo Zagreb
Group E: Chelsea, Valencia, Bayer Leverkusen,Genk
Group F: Arsenal, Marseille, Olympiakos, Borussia Dortmund
Group G: FC Porto, Shakhtar Donetsk, Zenit, Apoel FC
Group H: Barcelona, AC Milan, BATE Borisov, Viktoria Plzen
Among the 4 English football clubs, it seems that Manchester City has the toughest draw in Group A. However, given the quality and the experience of the team, punters are predicting that all 4 teams should be able to negotiate through the group phase.
Let’s see how it goes in the next couple of months.
