Out come the big guns.

Lionel Messi

Tonight sees the return of the Champions League proper, and what a set of fixtures it brings. I fear the optimism of the Milanese is rather ill placed but the game does have some promise. I ask only that we see just a few flashes of collective, footballing genius. 
Chelsea v B. Leverkusen should also be a great spectacle. Bayer have had mixed form over this season and last, as have Chelsea, but Villa Boas has been brought in, much like the previous umpteen managers, to win the Champions League. This is a must win game for them.
Arsenal's desperate form is unlikely to pick up in an away tie and Dortmund will be on the front foot after suffering a shock Home defeat to Bundesliga new boys Hertha Berlin. 
Thankfully, I have three screens, so I can watch all three.

Tonight's picks are Chelsea and Porto. Along with these I'll be dutching some scores in the Dortmund v Arsenal and Genk v Valencia games.

Last night's was another good trade with Inter taking a 2-0 lead in the first half. Somehow, Honka managed to claw it back to 2-2, with a red card, but this trader was long gone by then. 

Whatever you trade, stay green.
