Champions League – Matchday 3 overview

Posted on | October 22, 2008 | No Comments

It was a superb night for all football fans with lots of goals and great comebacks.
Manchester and Villareal have smashed their opponents in convincing victories. Sir Alex Ferguson’s men beat Scottish champion Celtic 3-0 at Old Trafford while Villareal produced the biggest score of the night 6-3 against AaB. After this matches Manchester and Villareal are occupying the first two places with 7 point each and probably the direct game will establish the winner of the group.
Lot of goals were scored also in Group F. Bayern won 3-0 against Fiorentina, but the match was more balanced than the score shows. In the other group game Lyon showed superb comeback as they manage to recover twice after being lead with 2-0 and 3-2 by Steaua. Lyon finally won the game with 5-3.
Bayern is the favorite for winning the group while Lyon and Fiorentina will beat for second place.
In Group G Arsenal beat 5-2 at Fenerbahce while Dynamo Kyiv won 1-0 at Porto. The last one was probably the only surprise of the night. Arsenal is by far the best team in the group. Rest of the teams will have to fight for the second place.
Group H was probably the most balanced. Juventus beat Real Madrid with 2-1 and made an important step in winning the group. The batle for third place betwen Bate and Zenit remains open after 1-1 draw at Zenit.
From eight matches only two of them ended with less than 3 goals. Probably it was also a great night for betting considering the high stakes for big scores.
