Good draw for them. Hopefully no hiccups here and they are lucky with the next draw.

Yeah, still surprised they did not win in St.Petersburg that night, Bukharov had so many chances

But they still were fairly comfortable in that group (Won 2 and drew 3 of the remaining 5 games).

That was the last time two Russian teams were in the final 16.

Don't see them being eliminated.

Next round can be tricky though.

Good draw. Unlike Spalletti, AVB has pretty spotless record in Europe against these lower rated teams.

Witsel is part of the squad that flew to Lisbon. I'm sure Kleber is pleased



Edit: lol, now that I think about it this could easily be our starting 11. Coincidence?

EL draw in 6 hours boys. We're seeded so we'll face a team from the unseeded pot which would be :Villarreal, Torino, Tottenham Hotspur, Celtic, PSV Eindhoven, Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk, Sevilla, Wolfsburg, Young Boys, Aalborg, Guingamp, Trabzonspor AŞ Anderlecht, Ajax, Liverpool, AS Roma.

Uefa won't let us draw Dnipro but the rest are up for grabs.

Good draw. Can't ask for more than a team that tries to play attacking football but still cant score on the porous Dinamo defense over two legs.

Decent draw.

PSV have got a good European pedigree but we should be able to beat them over the 2 legs.

Has the draw for the last 16 been made too? I got excited that we might face Liverlool as they seem to be right next to us in the draw!

P.S. Guys, have a great Christmas, me and the other half are off to Thailand tomorrow.)
