The 08/09 Premier League season will start up this weekend and undoubtedly many of us will be keeping an eye out on that, in terms of build-up…but don’t forget our FIRST LEG OF THE CHAMPIONS THIRD QUALIFYING ROUND!
WHEN? THIS WEDNESDAY (the 13th)!
Here’s the squad that will be traveling to Germany:
GK: Coupet, Leo Franco.
DF: Seitaridis, Antonio López, Pernía, Heitinga, Ujfalusi, Perea, Pablo, Valera.
MF: Cléber, Raúl García, Luis García, Maxi, Assunção, Miguel, Simão, Camacho.
FW: Diego Forlán, Sinama Pongolle.
MOTTA is still recuperating from his injury and MANICHE was omitted by technical decision. In other words, we are still in search for a club for him. KUN is still participating in the Olympics, of course.
According to AS, all of our summer signings will play in this first leg, with the exception of Coupet.
Here’s what they say our starting 11 will look like:
Leo Franco, Antonio López, Heitinga, Ujfalusi, Perea, Simão, Assunção, Raúl García, Maxi, Forlán, & Sinama Pongolle.
Not bad at all. The only important piece missing is Kun.
Anyone know what might be Schalke’s starting 11?
Let’s hope for the best result possible…and always:
