A Dull Draw

Quick cover of last night's Champions League draw: oh look, we're going to face Kazan again. With that frosty prospect in mind, Barca's group is genrally boring.

Our sports director Andoni Zubizaretta warns that "we can't take anything for granted," while the assistant coach Tito Vilanova thinks it's "not an easy group," based on the fact all three teams are champions of their respective leagues. Hey, aren't we on that list too?

Undoubtedly Pep will follow suit (once he has room to breathe upon the close of the transfer window) and say that this group presents a tremendous challenge. I say we'll cruise right through all six matches and grab about thirty goals along the way, then we'll have a relatively easy journey up until the semi final. You know, same as every year.

Barca's full group:
Panathinaikos (Greece)
FC Copenhagen (Denmark)
Rubin Kazan (Russia)
