UEFA: Group Confirmed

Posted by atleti on October 9, 2007

A brief entry on the group we drew.

GROUP B
Panathinaikos
Lokomotiv Moscow
Atlético de Madrid
Copenhagen
Aberdeen

We managed to not draw Liga clubs, Bayern Munich (coming in as ‘favourites’), Fiorentina, and English Premiership clubs.

GROUP STAGE SCHEDULE
[Jornada 1]: 25-October

Lokomotiv Moscow v Atlético de Madrid

[Jornada 2]: 8-November
NO GAME-REST

[Jornada 3]: 29-November
Atlético de Madrid v Aberdeen FC

[Jornada 4]: 5-December
FC Copenhagen v Atlético de Madrid

[Jornada 5]: 19 or 20- December
Atlético de Madrid v Panathinaikos

All things considered, this is a pretty good draw. The toughest fixture will no doubt be away to Locomotiv Moscow since Russia is never an easy place to play. Thankfully, that’s our first game. Bottom-line, though: we shouldn’t underestimate any of them.

    Copenhagen isn’t fun to go to either, but it’s great that the Pana game is at home. They’re brilliant in Greece and rubbish away.

    You’re right: I’m a bit afraid of the Copenhagen game ending as a draw.

    The Greeks and the Scots will have a tough time playing in el Vicente Calderón. There will be a large and LOUD supporter turnout for the games.

    Debemos pasar como primeros de grupo. El AT.Madrid acabará primero en este grupo. El cuadro colchonero ganará a sus rivales. Así, afrontarla la siguiente eliminatoria con la ventaja de jugar el encuentro de vuelta en el EStadio Vicente Calderón

    un abrazo.

    Gracias por dejar tu comment–

    De acuerdo, debemos acabar primero (no hay excusas, en verdad, tenemos la calidad).

    saludos,
