Uefe revealed that Fenerbahce has ben replaced by the team that finished 2nd in the Turkish league, Trabzonspor.
The draw for the UEFA Champions league group stage has just been concluded.
Manchester City were in pot 3 and were almost certain to be in the toughest group.
And they were; Group A for me is the group of death with Bayern, Villareal, Man city and Napoli.
Manchester United were handed the easiest group with themselves, Benfica, Basel and Otelul.
Barcelona were also drawn with Milan which should be a great encounter but those 2 should qualify easily.
The full groups can be viewed in the picture above.

وصلت المفاوضات بين رابطة الدوري للمحترفين و جمعية اللاعبين الإسبان إلى الباب المسدود بعد اجتماعهما الأخير اليوم الإثنين
خلصت المحادثات بين الطرفين إلى تأكيد جمعية اللاعبين الإسبان على استئناف الإضراب بدءً من يوم الجمعة القادم (26) حتى يوم الإثنين (29) من شهر أغسطس الحالي ما يعني تأجيل الجولة الثانية من الدوري الإسباني لكرة القدم إلى موعد لاحق.
هذا و كان من المفترض أن تنطلق منافسات الليجا الإسبانية يوم السبت الماضي لولا عدم توصل الطرفان إلى إتفاق بشأن حصول اللاعبين الإسبان على ضمانات من الأندية التي يلعبون لها لتقاضي رواتبهم في التواريخ المحددة لذلك.
The players’ strike in La Liga is still on after a new meeting between the Spanish football League (LFP) and the footballers’ union (AFE) failed to produce any results.
The two parties will convene again on Tuesday hoping to edge closer to an understanding, so that matchday two of the Primera and Segunda Divisions is not postponed
The first weekend of the 2011-12 campaign has already been deferred, and Luis Gil, spokesperson for AFE, stated he is not too hopeful an agreement will be reached anytime soon
“The problem is not fixed, I understand that people want to see football, but they have to think about the players who are in a bad situation,” Gil said. He continued: “I would like to be more optimistic, but I cannot. Now, I can only talk about a strike in the second matchday. He added: “The strike will remain on if there is no agreement for all issues. We have made a new proposal and now we have to see if we can get closer.”
LFP president Jose Luis Astiazaran added: “It is not up to us that the strike is called off, we can only continue negotiations and submit proposals. We have shown we want to reach an agreement.”
The draw for the Uefa Champions League qualifying round has just began (11AM GMT, 1PM Mecca time)

Some people falsely believe that Arsenal could play against “Lyon, Villereal and Bayern” But that is not the case as the only teams they can get are Rubin Kazan, Udinese, Odense, Twenteor FC Zürich.
I will update this post with live updates on every team, stay tuned
The draw for the Champions Route has been concluded and the matches are as follows
The draw has not been completed and the rest of the matches are :
In my opinion Lyon’s match will be the toughest for them as we all know going to russia to play Rubin isn’t such an easy job, Arsenal have drawn Udinese, a good team which has finished fourth in the Italian League last season but with little champions league experience. I don’t expect it to be easy as in football there are no easy game but we all expect Arsenal to go through.
But that might now be the case, Remember for those matches we will be without Robin Van Persie who got sent off in Barcelona, Nasri and Wenger too after “Rude” Comments to the referee after the Barcelona match.
So it might not be as easy as everyone expects…
I expect Villereal, Benfica, Arsenal, Bayern and Lyon to go through to the group stage after the two legged encounters. But not without a fight from the other teams. Lets hope for some great matches and some enjoyable action.
