It will be nice to see Bruno Alves return to the Dragao.

Let's be honest, your club would finish 3rd in this group behind Shahktar and Zenit.

Based on our current form you are probably right but we will surely improve. Besides we beat Shakhtar in both games when we met them in the group stage of the CL, and back then we had a weaker squad than the current one, so I don't see why we wouldn't be able to do it again.

Please, AAB, your predictions were horrendous last time around. That probably means the opposite and Porto winning the CL.

The Russian supporters are setting themselves up so bad. Again.

I hope CSKA do well though.

Are u reffering to my CSKA-Porto prediction?

In general yes my predictions is not always correct, if they were id be betting 24/7. But still imo my prediction is pretty much 50/50 here..Zenit will be brutal to Porto

Hulk will be walking in amazement of Criscitos magic, he will be in awe and not be able to play..only look and be amazed

CSKA has the team to do well this year. no doubt.

I'm looking forward to Honda returning to the CL. I hope Slutsky plays him as I like to watch him... though zoric thinks he is overrated*, and maybe he is right, still he's got some sublime skills.

*actually not sure whether he said that, I retract this, apologies.

He isn't overrated, he's just not a player who can play in the top clubs in my opinion. I like my players when they're quick and move a lot without the ball. It's just taste

I like Honda since his VVV-days for gods sake

People are already talking shit because of the absence of Falcao, a great coach, and probably someone else. But a team like Porto should never be underestimated. They struggled against Besiktas in one leg, then after that they went on a rampage.

As long as Porto's defenders do their job (not a fan of Fucile nor Otamendi), I'm more than sure Moutinho, Guarin, Varela, Hulk, and the few other guys with the big minutes will get the job done.

I disagree on Honda, he can be a good performer at a top western club imo. When I watch him I notice the talent but he's probably to inconsistent to become undisputed world class. He's ceiling is still very high though.

I can see Kagawa play world class, not so much Honda. Honda is too inconsistent and can tend to play passive at times. He's more of a solid midtier player. Nothing more, nothing less.
