… First and foremost, if you haven’t already, go here and download the latest edition of the Fighting Talker Podcast, featuring our conversation with current GolTV lead color commentator and former DC United and Miami head coach Ray Hudson. Hudson talks about La Liga, the Bundesliga, his playing days at Newcastle and in the NASL, and gives us his thoughts on the potential future of MLS in South Florida.
Now, on to today’s UEFA Champions League, where you’d be a wise man and score a lot of points by simply doing the opposite of all the picks I post below. I think I’ve had more bad picks in this contest than Jake Delhomme.
Here are the games, with my picks, and then the standings. There are a few very interesting matches today, I think, headed probably by Bayern Munich v. Juventus. It will be interesting to see if we get any surprise results as we did yesterday.
Feel free to jump in any time:
* Bayern Munich vs. Juventus: (BM 3-1)
* Bordeaux vs. Maccabi Haifa: (BOR 2-0)
* CSKA Moscow vs. Besiktas: (CSKA 2-1)
* Manchester United vs. Wolfsburg: (MUFC 2-1; winning it in the 14th minute of stoppage time. )
* AC Milan vs. FC Zurich: (Zurich put a spirited effort vs. Real Madrid; and a Zurich hockey team beat the Blackhawks yesterday. ACM 3-1)
* Real Madrid vs. Marseille: (RM 4-0)
* Apoel Nicosia vs. Chelsea: (CHEL 1-0)
* FC Porto vs. Atletico Madrid: (1-1 draw).
