Champions League Round 5- Wednesday Empty Champions League Round 5- Wednesday

Post by RealGunner Wed Nov 21, 2012 1:07 am

Some pretty interesting fixtures Tomorrow

Dynamo Kiev v Paris SG
FC Porto v Din Zagreb


This group is pretty much done. Porto and PSG are 1st and 2nd with 10 n 9 points. Kiev are 3rd with 4. Unless a miracle occurs and Kiev wins both of their matches while PSG losing theirs, i can't see anything else happening apart from Porto n PSG progressing to the next round

________________________________

Arsenal v Montpellier
Schalke 04 v Olympiakos


This group is a bit interesting. Schalke are top with 8 points, Arsenal 2nd with 7 and Olypiakos 3rd with 6. If Schalke wins tomorrow and Arsenal wins tomorrow in their game, then these two sides will progress regardless of what happens in the final matchday. However if Arsenal lose, and Olympiakos wins or draw their game. Then Arsenal would have to win their last game away to Olympiakos. For tomorrow, Schalke would probably be looking at getting a result to confirm their progression while arsenal will have to win to keep matters in their own hands.
____________________________________

Zenit St P'sbg v Malaga
Anderlecht v AC Milan


Malaga are flying in this group, with a handsome 5 points lead over Milan who are 2nd. However, Anderlecht are close behind milan at 3rd with 4 points so therefore, tomorrows game between Anderlecht and Milan is very very important. Milan can confirm their progression to the Round 16 with a win, however they can drop to 3rd if they lose, but it won't be catastrophic as Milan can progress via winning their last game while expecting a result to go their way in Spain where Malaga are unbeaten so far. There are very very slim chances of Zenit getting anything in this group, but they can get the EL spot if some results go their way
_________________________________

Ajax v Borussia Dortmund
Man City v Real Madrid


This is probably the best group in terms of tomorrow's fixtures. Dortmund leads the group with 8 points, Real madrid are 2nd with 7 while Ajax are 3rd with 4 points. City have 2. Dortmund travels to Ajax where they can all but confirm their progression to the next round if they beat the dutch side. A point for Madrid at the Etihad will confirm their progression as well, along with the fact that city will be out of the CL and may fight with ajax for the EL spot. However, if Ajax beats Dortmund and City beats Madrid. Then Both Ajax and Madrid will be tied with 7 points each, taking them to the last matchday for the ultimate decider. It will also give City a very very slim hope of getting something out of this Group.

We should be able to salvage at least a point against Anderlecht, later on we go up against Zenit at the San Siro, we beat them away last time, i am confident we can beat them home...i think

Champions League Round 5- Wednesday Empty AFC Ajax vs Borrussia Dortmund

Post by Clockwork Orange Wed Nov 21, 2012 3:42 pm

How ironic, that the two men with the most money at their disposal, Mancini and Di Matteo have/had their jobs under pressure. I have always been an advocate of a club being run the right way. Dortmund are a reference for every club in Europe because they give their youth a chance and don't spend unprecedented amounts of money on players.

I hope that we win this game, but I will not begrudge them a victory. Apart from Dortmund plays the finest brand of football, along with my siste club Barcelona and PSV Sad

This is a battle of philosophies as opposed to a battle of supersters that will be taking place in the aptly named Ethihad Stadium. I hope this forum members choose to watch this game.

Why no support for Ajax?

Actually I want to get something off my conscience. I admit I am not very fond of Italian football and I am quite open about it, I watched the Juventus-Chelsea game against my own will last night and I was very shocked.

Juventus play modern football and strived to be the protagonist against Chelsea, something I did not expect. I was very impressed and I must congratualte your team. Have they always played like this or is this a one off? I very much enjoyed the intensity they brought, it reminded me of the legendary Rinus Michels Ajax, in terms of the off the ball work.

I am glad that I was able to put aside my prejudice.

I have nothing against Ajax but if they win today that could possibly jeopardize Dortmund's position in the group as far as winning the group is concerned.

Besides if you win today ,you might have to win against Madrid as well to have any chance of qualifying and imo i feel thats unlikely to happen..As of now Dortmund are placed very well in the group and if they manage to win the group i predict them to go far in the competition.

And yes if you watch Juventus regularly you will actually notice that we play some wonderful brand of football especially at home where we have often put on a show against big teams.Conte is the reason for it.Not only has he produced results but also mixed them with effective and entertaining brand of football as well something his predecessors couldnt quite manage to do.

If your sentiments on Serie A teams is what it is now, I highly suggest watch more of the league as you will be pleasantly surprised to which how many times are playing attacking and modern football, if not setting trends already.

I try to follow teams with similar football backgrounds and projects to Ajax. I watched Roma when I could last season. It was sad that Luis Enrique was not given enough time. I was against Italian football after the drug allegations made in the late 90s, coupled with the fact that we lost to them twice (a final and a semi final), I felt that Italian football represented a dark side of football.

I will try and watch more teams. Apart from Roma what other teams play attacking football?

Thank you. I will try and watch them. Juventus are opening doors for Italian football, you should be proud, although I cannot agree with your off the field antics, with your manager involved in scandal.

Interesting....

As for your question, Napoli have grown to attack more compared to last year with a fast and quick counter-attack style. Udinese with an unorthodox almost possession based Counter-attacking style which is quite pleasing to the eye. Milan despite being disjointed in defence attack quite a lot with a 4-2-3-1 and when down a goal use a 4-2-4 often. Juve and Roma is obvious while the latter probably being the most attacking side in Europe. Atalanta are capable of great attacks with their narrow diamond. The highly underrated Catania have been a revelation under Miran with a wing based attacking side. Palermo under Gasperini are inconsistent yet have accrued many goals and have Gasp's typical attacking philosophy under their belt. Cagliari aren't attacking but their footballing plays are pleasing to watch. Inter depends on their day and formation as they can play counter-attacking or then pure attack when playing their 4-3-3.

And of course there is Fiorentina under Montella which not only is pure attack but is in my opinion the most attractive side to watch in all of Europe.

Stereotype of Serie A that they don't play attacking football has long been dispelled.

massive round for the group of death

if ajax beat dortmund and city beat rm it would be

dortmund 8
rm 7
ajax 7
city 5

anyones game.. and that would mean that on the final day it is technically possible to see a 4 way tie with all four teams at 8 points.

the madness!!!

not gonna happen but one could imagine.
