Here I take a look at the Champions League Draw and give some early prediction for the two sides from each group to progress. Each group will also have its own odds box to show the best odds available for each.
This looks a horrid group for Arsenal, and how Wenger will be wishing he had the luck of Alex Ferguson and his group for this years first group stage. A basic round up of this group is that we never know, or at least certainly are not able to rely on Arsenal as a rule, much less so now with Cesc and Nasri departed. Also in the Group the German champions Borussia Dortmund, as we see yet another group with and England v Germany match up. Marseilles will have a say, they have no fear in going forward and taking teams, on, and don’t underestimate Olympiakos, especially at home. Their defeat to Bordeaux in February, was their first at home in this competition in 5 years and first defeat in 12, whilst they had won their previous six home ties. Consistency will be required to top the quartet. This is real tight. Dortmund are the call to win the group, from there it’s not clear cut. I’m going to call Wengers men out, i think Marseilles will squeak through at their expense.
