Today, The Champions League formally returns. It’s the last step for a few European giants to reach the Group Stage of Europe’s elite competition or be relegated into the Europa League.
Matches this afternoon include: Arsenal v. Udinese. BATE Borisov v. SK Sturm Graz. Copenhagen v. Pizen. Lyon v. Rubin Kazan. FC Twente v. Benfica.
Tomorrow the drama continues with Bayern Munich v. FC Zürich, Dinamo Zagreb v. Malmo FF, Maccabi Haifa v. Racing Genk, Odense BK v. Villarreal, and Wisla Krakow v. Apoel Nicosia.
It’s time to get the epic “Championsssssss!” tune stuck in your head once more! Hooray!
Fox Soccer has these matches in the U.S. Tune in to the qualifiers for some squads you wouldn’t be exposed to originally, and if you are an Arsenal fan, an extra dose of teeth-grinding.
