Most football fanatics have been waiting ages for the UEFA Champions League to start! Finally, tonight, it kicked-off with some excellent matches:
- Olympique Lyon-Real Madrid 3-0: The Real Madrid circus continues; many people thought that last weekend's loss to Celta Vigo was an exception. But tonight we saw the French champions overrun the so-called "Galacticos". I am just tired that people still refer to them like that (of course, US and South African TV did so): This is the worse Real Madrid team in history! No titles for 2 years seems to continue!
- Artmedia-Inter 0-1: The surprising Slovakians had their first match ever in the Champions League. Maybe it were the nerves, but they lost at home to the seasoned Italians, on a goal by Julio Cruz.
- Glasgow Rangers-FC Porto 3-2: I have before said that Rangers will have a hard time in the Champions League. But this does not entail that they will have an impossible time. Tonight they showed exactly that with tenacity and fight, they can defeat any team, and that nobody should underestimate them.
These were the matches played tonight in Groups E, F, G and H.
Tomorrow, groups A, B, C and D will be playing.
