It's going to be a tough couple of years for German clubs. Dortmund are rebuilding and Wolfsburg & Gladbach have no experience in the CL and won't go very far. However, watch out for Leverkusen and Schalke's youth. Very, very promising. German clubs will be back at the top in 2-3 years I reckon.Really poor year for the Bundesliga. Dortmund are rubbish, the second best team got pissed on by a Napoli side at its worst in years and over 10 points separate the top teams in the league.
With 3 teams in the semis this year, it's about time Serie A started taking back that 4th CL spot.
Italy's got seven MASSIVE clubs to Germany's one and even they threatened to leave the Buli for Serie A in 2003. German football peaked last summer and the only way is down IMVHO.
For some reason they just don't do it for me. I can just see both ties being incredibly cagey. I hope it's an all-italian final but I can just see the two other sides making it to Warsaw. I wish Sevilla would fuck off.Napoli v Dnipro
Sevilla v Fiorentina
Two interesting fixtures tonight, fancy Napoli to make it past Dnipro and scoring a few tonight will see the trip to Ukraine more comfortable. Sevilla v Fiorentina will be the more interesting tie for me, hard to call a winner, can see it still being level after 180 minutes.
Sevilla at least still have a chance at getting it from the league though Valencia look the favourites to clinch the last place, but then again they have Rea Madrid this weekend so we'll see. Been saying it since the knockout stages that Sevilla will win this again, they are looking good for that.Winners go into Champions league of course.
Are any of them already likely to get a spot from the league position?
Benitez is a shit manager in fairness. And Higuain is at the right club in that he's not very good.How the fuck can anyone defend the job Benitez has done at Napoli? He's been fucking shit.
The Ukranian sides are never easy but this is fucking pathetic. We should under no circumstances be losing to Dnipro.
Napoli can say goodbye to Higuain. He's too good for the club.
Yep, both started today and Carrico scored. Carrico was injured pretty much the whole time he was at Reading, played 90 odd minutes in six months but looked very good in those small appearances.Do Sevilla still have the 2 guys who were 'flops' at QPR and Reading although I think one was injured in all fairness.
