Next week, the 3rd round of the UEFA Champions League kicks off. The significance of this is that this is the 1st round that teams from the Big 3 European leagues (Spain, England, and Italy)compete. So the questions is, will there be any major upsets with the representatives of these leagues as none face one another?? The teams are Atletico Madrid, Barcelona, Liverpool, Arsenal, Fiorentina, and Juventus. I think all will make it through to the group stages. This round is tricky because most of these clubs have only played pre-season football. They only have to look at Rangers as a reminder of the small club upset.
