Chelsea vs Juventus & Manchester United vs Galatasaray: Open Thread

It’s going to take a lot to surpass the excitement level of what we saw during yesterday’s Real Madrid against Manchester City match, but I’m sure that Manchester United and Chelsea will do their best in their respective Champions League matches today.

The current Champions League title holders, Chelsea, begins its Champions League journey with a very tricky tie against one of the best teams in Italy. Avoiding defeat will be enough to satisfy most Chelsea supporters, but the Blues will need to be firing on all cylinders in order to get the three points.

Meanwhile, further north in England, Manchester United will begin its Champions League quest with a home match against Turkish side Galatasaray. United will want to make a good impression after last season’s bitterly disappointing Champions League competition where they were knocked out of the opening group.

For viewers in the United States, here’s the TV schedule for today’s matches.

Before, during and after today’s matches, post your rants, raves, questions and observations in the comnents section below.
