If there’s Soccer being played, then it stands to reason we’re going to have a FoxSoccer-FIFA Club meeting. It’s Champions League ties this week (*sings falsetto* “The Chaam-pions”) so chances are good that we’ll be watching either the Benfica v FC Barcelona or Ajax v Real Madrid replays. Will Cesc be able to stay upright against the feisty Portuguese home side? (no spoilers!)
Benfica lost some star power during this summer’s transfer window but Barcelona may be without Puyol, Iniesta, Adriano, and will definitely miss out on Thiago and Piqué. And which Real will show up in Amsterdam? The one that demolished Deportivo or the fractious team that struggles with Getafe and Sevilla?
We can vote to watch any of the other great options including last year’s England champs Man City hosting last year’s German champs Borussia Dortmund.
