Your Champions League Matchday 1 (Day 2) Open Thread

You thought you could get away from fútbol #content,  didn’t you?  In my best Lee Corso doing a SEC cheerleader from behind impression,

Yeah,  I hope you stocked up on bleach prior to reading this.  Try getting THAT image out of your head.

You’re welcome.

And now,  to the important stuff!

Yesterday,  we were so busy reading Game Time Decision’s excellent lacrosse post that we spaced out on Day 1 of Matchday One in the Champions League group stage. This,  as you undoubtedly know,  is when the games get good and the intensity gets ratcheted up a notch.

Here are the scores from yesterday’s action:

And here are the standings in Groups A through D:

Without further ado,  here is today’s schedule (all times Pacific):

 

As you may also know,  the rights to the Champions League have switched. While last year we could see the games on Fox and their related networks,  this year,  the games will be on Univision and TNT.

Yes,  TNT.

I don’t know about you,  but even if I didn’t understand the language,  I’d still watch the games on Univision.  For obvious reasons..

The standout games are Real-Roma and Valencia-Juventus.

Is it Whoventus, Jewventus,  or something else entirely?

Crvena Zvezda? Galatasaray? FC Viktoria Plzen?

Wow! I love it!

If this could possibly get any more foreign it would be yodeling in a thatched hut on Mars.

Can’t wait to see the Young Boys in action!

Sure hope the Young Boys can keep from getting beaten at home!

Looking forward to seeing the Young Boys try to not get taken down by the older, more physical guys!

I hope the Young Boys don’t end up making rhythmic slapping sounds in the showers after the game!

I have a feeling Man U is going to take it to Young Boys.

Dammit, that one was RIGHT THERE and I missed it. Well done.

I’m considering a name change; to Lokomotiv LemonJello!

I bet Corso bangs cheerleaders with his pick of mascot head on, while they have to wear the opponent’s.

Also, obligatory: Lesser Footy?!??!!

Look, I know that schools have to compete more for students these days, but you’d think the Hogwarts Express would have a monopoly on their market and wouldn’t need to stun these millennial wizards with “ooh, sparkly!”
