Uh jewels we've had the Champions League Draw let's let's split this up okay Um from the top half of the draw yeah You would just go go through this Rattata Leipzig against Manchester City Yeah I mean they've met before uh often Actually in the group stages they always Open game I still think City too strong For lapse but I think lapsee can make it Difficult for them Against Benfica I mean the title Probably if you are last Bruce and Benfica who do you want to play against They would have picked each other so Let's see I think Benfica this one have To be the favorite they've been very Impressive we said they won again at the Weekend and beaten in 23 games nine World competitions I don't know when the last when this Game is going to be played how it is Because I will look and Bruce as well But they should be open there we go if They played right now they've been Thinking would be heavy pressure I think Bruce would have wanted to play Portugal But of course they couldn't because they Were in the same group yeah Liverpool against Real Madrid this Sounds so it's the Revenge of the Revenge of the Revenge of the Revenge The replay of the replay of the replay Of the replay I mean we're so used to it We were together in Paris of course for

The uh the last Champions League final This is much earlier This is a game that I don't think either Of them with a fancy fancy fancy facing The other Um for me it's very open this one I know Maybe you put Real Madrid favorite Because of the Champions League final That they won against that but we saw How well Liverpool played yeah we we Don't know what condition Liverpool are Going to be in in two months but I just Don't need any truth you think to the Rumor that Sergio Ramos is going to come Back on loan just so he can face So we can live rent free in his head no No but I mean there would be a time Where you know Liverpool will get the Best out of them I think and finally Milan against Spurs I like this one a Lot you know I think this one is a Proper 50 50. because Spurs haven't Played great uh this isn't again there's A couple of months before those games Are played so a lot of can happen but Yeah I think Milan Conte going back to Italy of course facing Milan again Um it's just gonna this one is going to Be great offensive the kalulu cane Battle in Midfield as well the two Hernandez on the left-hand side I think You know jiru against Spurs By that point maybe even just just a few Minutes and of course Magic Mike against
