First, the groups:
Analysis: Dangerous Roma presents a threat to Chelsea at the top, but there's no stopping the Blues here.
Analysis: Mourinho's group is a breeze. Bremen and Panathinaikos battle for second behind Inter.
Analysis: Barca draws well. Sporting may finally escape the group stage, having beaten Basel in the UEFA Cup last year, 5-0. Shaktar may have something to say there as well.
Analysis: Pretty tight fit here with Liverpool, PSV, Atletico and Marseille trading blows. This could come down to some tie-breakers.
Analysis: Aalborg guarantees three points for the remainder of the group. United favored with Villareal edging Celtic? Maybe?
Analysis: Bayern returns to the Champions League and hits formidable opponents at all turns. Lyon and Bayern cannot afford a slip.
Analysis: Fenerbahce snuck into the final eight last year, but Arsenal and Porto may not permit this.
Analysis: Interesting return to the Champions League for Juventus. Real Madrid gets in. Zenit and Juve will battle for second.
OBLIGATORY GROUP OF DEATH: D or F -- you choose. I'll say D.
UPSET BOUND TO HAPPEN: Zenit over Juventus for second in Group H; Sporting getting to the knockout stage.
