The draw of 2008/09 UEFA Champions League group stage has just finished at the Grimaldi Forum in Monaco and the holder Manchester United are going to play again in the same group (Group E) with Celtic FC. Also Spanish side Villarreal and Aalborg BK from Denmark are going to play against United. So it is possible to see former United youngster Rossi to play at Old Trafford in the coming game.
In General, the group is not that difficult as Celtic are the League holder in Scotland while Villarreal were third, but they still can surprise United like what they did three years ago when they knockout United from the group stage. In the other hand, Aalborg BK are the only unknown team in the group, however Sir Alex side should be alerted from their threat.
The group stage fixtures will be played on 16/17 September, 30 September/1 October, 21/22 October, 4/5 November, 25/26 November and 9/10 December. The group winners and runners-up will progress to the first knockout round in the spring, with the final to be staged at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome on 27 May 2009. Teams finishing third in each section will have the consolation of going into the UEFA Cup Round of 32.
Do you think United can go throw easily this time?
