The ground shook and windows rattled - Jasper Juinen
Today is Wednesday, October 24. This is your open thread.
Let's watch other BIG teams struggle with lesser-known opposition! Come on all you Malagas and Ajaxes and Zagrebs!
Today's action already kicked off with another early game from Russia - Zenit St. Petersburg (HULK!) taking on Belgian champs Anderlecht (everything good nowadays is Belgian, right?).
The pick of the late games (i.e. "normal" time games) is probably Borussia Dortmund hosting Jose Mourinho, Michael Essien, and Real Madrid. Arsenal are at home v. Schalke 04, while Manchester City travel to Amsterdam.
