2008-2009 UEFA Champions League Group Stage Decided

450px ligue des champions nb 2008 2009 UEFA Champions League Group Stage DecidedSeveral pundits have offered opinions on which group will be the toughest and which Serie A club(s) have the most difficult task of proceeding further so I might as well throw my hat in the ring with the rest.

Roma and Juventus are going to face the toughest battle in groups A and H respectively.

Roma will be facing off against last year’s runners-up Chelsea FC and Laurent Blanc’s ever improving Girondins from Bordeaux, while a rebuilt Bianconeri have to deal with last season’s La Liga Champions The Meringues and Russian Express Zenit St. Peterburg, winners of the UEFA Super Cup,with a result of 2-1 over Manchester United Friday.
