Here comes the Champions League

The first matches of the group stage are about to begin. Here is the full list of matches (update: and results).

AC Milan 3 - Fenerbahce 1
PSV Eindhoven 1 - Schalke 0
Lyon 3 - Real Madrid 0
Olympiakos 1 - Rosenborg 3
Chelsea 1 - Anderlecht 0
Real Betis 1 - Liverpool 2
Artmedia Bratislava 0 - Inter Milan 1
Rangers 3 - FC Porto 2

Something interesting, Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard is not in the starting line-up. They will depend on Peter Crouch and Florent Sinama Pongolle for offense.

Liverpool came on strong with a good road win against Teal Betis. Florent Sinama Pongolle showed why he was starting by scoring just 87 seconds into the match.

Real Madrid got a surprise. Lyon owned the match and kept the bigger side off balance all night.

Chelsea against won with just a goal, however fans might be turning a little sour on their team. Fewer than 30,000 people showed up for the game, leaving 12,000 empty seats. Great by MLS numbers, but not so wonderful when you are one of the top teams in the world.
