Partido; Real Madrid - BATE Borisov
Fecha; 17/09/2008
Hora; 20:45
Estadio; Santiago Bernabéu
Jornada; 1

So...on to the CL, where for many this is the so-called "group of death". On paper we're the strongest team in our group and should qualify - and to do so we must start with ensuring no less than six points against these newcomers from Belarus. They're an unknown quantity but are expected to be the whipping boys in the group...so is it fair to say we can expect a royal whipping here?

Gago should play instead of Diarra, to give him a rest and also give Gago some minutes. Other than that, Higuain deserves to keep his place.
Agree, Gago has had his rest after the Olympics and International games and has to start here. Diarra has been fasting and doesn't look as sharp as he did in pre-season, he needs a rest. If Raul replaces Higuain I will break something.

Anything less than a 4 goal differential in our victory would be disappointing.

Expect to see:

Casillas
Ramos - Pepe - Cannavaro - Heinze
Diarra
HAZ - VDV
Raul - Ruud - Robben​

I highly doubt Canna will start.
The game's on TSN2 for us. I was pissed off thinking we wouldn't get it live since TSN is showing it at midnight, but TSN2 is showing it live, and in HD. :shades:

Champions league record is what?8-0?:confused:

I saw Bate in Belgium against Anderlecht,they are not too bad with the ball but they don't have defense for this level.

5-1 my prediction.
