UEFA Champions League: Scotland Clubs off to Great Start

Posted: October 16, 2007 in Soccer, UEFA CL

If I can remember, there was a certain someone named Mike White from DH talking about Scottish clubs Rangers and Celtic, and saying that “It is going to be a rough year for Scotland.”. The UEFA Champions League campaign for Rangers and Celtic couldn’t be any better. Rangers (Group E with FC Barcelona, Stuttgart, Lyon), have won their first 2 games over French champions Lyon 3-0 and German Bundesliga champs Stuttgart 2-1. Next week will be the big test for Rangers as they face FC Barcelona in Glasgow.

Celtic are in Group D with defending UEFA Champions League winners AC Milan, Portugese powerhouse Benfica, and Ukrainian club Shakhtar Donetsk, have won one and lost one. That win however was a 2-1 stunner against AC Milan, in which the fans were a little too happy (and Dida for Milan was a little too dramatic).

As things come to a close for the first set of group games for the respective clubs, they are on pace to advance to the round of 16.
