Are you really surprised that Barcelona and Chelsea ended up in the same Champions League group? I’m not. Given that the other two teams in their group are Werder Bremen and Levski Sofia, I doubt Jose Mourinho or Frank Rijkaard are too concerned about having to meet each other for the third year in a row. I actually think this is a decent draw for Chelsea – at least they can’t now face the Spanish champions in the knockout stages. What do you think?
Man U, Arsenal and Liverpool should all be reasonably happy with their respective groups, although Liverpool’s quartet (Liverpool, Galatasaray, Bordeaux, PSV Eindhoven) looks pretty competitive.
