On Tuesday the Champions League competition officially got underway as Groups A through D competed. The games were dominated by blow outs for the most part. The only game that was close was a tie between FC Copenhagen and Juventus, at Copenhagen. Cristiano Ronaldo’s hat trick led Real Madrid to a dominating 6-1 win over Galatasaray.
I had picked that game as my match to watch because I thought it would be competitive given Galatasaray’s tough home venue. I was wrong.
On Wednesday we’ll watch the second half of Groups, E through H, kick off.
I’m going to go out on a limb again and pick another game to watch. Barcelona and Ajax would be interesting, they’re both big name clubs. Barcelona has the most star power out of the teams playing today in the duo of Lionel Messi and Neymar.
I will pick Napoli and Borussia Dortmund though. Either way you really can’t go wrong watching any of these games. It looks like a great day of Champions League play.
