Today's Champions League Fixtures

The second round of the group stage gets underway today. I'm guessing a lot of eyes will be on the Man United match. With the booing of Ferguson over the weekend, this game has suddenly morphed into a 'do or die' situation. No, Ferguson will have his job no matter the outcome, but the supporters will become ever more enraged if he does not deliver.

It will also be fun to see what Arsenal can do. Their history in Europe is not so great, so every win will help them along.

Anyway, here is the full listing of fixtures (updated with scores):

Ajax 1-2 Arsenal
Barcelona 4-1 Udinese
Bayern Munich 1-0 Club Brugge
FC Thun 1-0 Sparta Prague
Juventus 3-0 Rapid Vienna
Lille 0-0 Villarreal
Man United 2-1 Benfica
Panathinaikos 2-1 Werder Bremen

So Man U walked away with a win thinks to a late van Nistelrooy goal. Will this quiet things down for their backers?

Not entirely sure it will calm down Manchester United supporters since going in the media played up the fact that Benfica was on a downtick this year (they're ninth in the Portugese league if memory serves) so the fact that United needed a late goal to win it might not sit well. Plus, you know, it's United fans, the biggest bunch of chicken littles on Earth.

incendiarymind, thanks for making me laugh. I'm sure the complaints will keep coming. I just wonder if the booing will stop.
