We broke a record!

What a weird game it was. Even though we had some poor performances we were still able to escape the Bernabeu with a draw and secure the group win. We can always count on Batman and Robin to come through for us. Now let's see who we'll get next.

  • The possible opponents in the Champions League

The group stage is over and now we can take a look at all of our possible opponents in the next round. It was very important to finish the group at the top to avoid some heavyweights like Barcelona, Atletico and Juventus.

Paris St. Germain, Benfica Lisbon, Manchester City, AS Monaco, FC Porto, FC Sevilla

We can't draw Bayern Munich, Bayer Leverkusen or Real Madrid because of different rules. You can't get drawn against a team of the same country in the next round and you can't get drawn against teams that were in your group.

Personally I'd say ManCity is the worst possible draw for us. Pep knows our team well and City are a very strong side that can beat anyone on their good days. Benfica might be the easiest possible draw, they are a good team but we should be considered favorites against them.

  • BVB just broke a CL-record

No other team has ever scored 21 goals in the group stage of the Champions League. Congrats to the team for breaking this record and confirming that the black and yellows are one of the best offenses in Europe right now.

Daily Buzz: Obviously the question will be about the CL-draw. Which team do you want in the next round and which team should we avoid?
