I think so. Traditional curtain-raiser between the European Cup and UEFA Cup winners.
Or Champions League v Europa League if you prefer.
Barcelona v Porto
New signings on both sides, and Porto lost their manager and some players, with others rumoured .
My money's on Barcelona, but I think it should be a good match.
Last year the Europa League won the day, with Atletico Madrid shocking European Champions Inter Milan.
This would be much better if it toured rather than staying in Monaco.
Not that everyone knows it's in Monaco, was watching Rangers last night and they mentioned it and said the weather should be better in Spain for the game.
Correct me if I'm wrong - it's so they can have a big Uefa bun-fest with the CL and EL draws and this match, yes?
Cheers mate, I didn't know.
Kleber, Rodriguez and Hulk up top for Porto.
That fella Messi, with Pedro and I suppose Villa for Barca.
By the way, Barca's new kit = ugly
Ah, that's what I don't like, I prefer fat stripes. ;)
But also, it seems as if the red bleeds into the blue, it's hard on the eyes for some reason.
I wonder how it will sell in comparison?
I wouldn't buy it anyway, won't have Qatar on my chest!
Or Super Cup?
The pitch IS a bit rubbish, isn't it?
