Euro Roundup: Your weekly European briefing
Rejoice, friends, and be merry, for club football has returned.
After the darkness of the international break, the light is very much back with us. All over Europe, the lights were turned back on from Friday evening, and football was the shining beacon of hope in all our lives. Yes, it’s that bad.
This week too, the Champions League returns again, and it feels like it’s been away for far too long. It’s been three weeks since Europe’s elite club tournament graced our television screens, and there’s lots to look forward to this week, especially for Our Boys.
Spurs are looking to batter some German giants into the ground to take their place in the last 16. Arsenal can stake a huge claim for top spot in their group with two victories over Ludogorets Razgrad in the next two matchdays. Manchester City face the toughest trip in European football as they travel to Barcelona, and could find themselves battling it out for second place in the group with Celtic if Brendan Rodgers’ side beats Borussia Monchengladbach. Whilst Leicester City could make it three from three as they face Copenhagen.
This week’s Euro Roundup is so happy about the return of club football that it even watched the Premier League this week! (Hang on, when did Victor Moses happen again?!)
