    Well the CL group stage has been drawn:

    Group B
    Inter Milan
    Bayern Munich
    Sporting Lisbon
    Spartak Moscow

    That's a pretty tough group Bayern are our obvious main competitors for top spot but Sporting Lisbon and Moscow are no push overs either. Still with the quality of our squad and Bayern losing Ballack and Ze Roberto, I would expect us to finish top of the group.

    Here are the fixtures:

    Matchday 1, Tuesday 12 September
    Sporting Lisbon v FC Internazionale

    Matchday 2, Wednesday 27 September
    FC Internazionale v Bayern Munich

    Matchday 3, Wednesday 18 October
    FC Internazionale v Spartak Moscow

    Matchday 4, Tuesday 31 October
    Spartak Moscow v FC Internazionale

    Matchday 5, Wednesday 22 November
    FC Internazionale v Sporting Lisbon

    Matchday 6, Tuesday 5 December
    Bayern Munich v FC Internazionale

    one thing that makes me mad is mancini that he is scared and making excuses already he always talks about fitness we need a coach with confidence not a coach that always wants the easy way to win we need to beat the best to be the best.
    i bet anything that mancini is thinking right now if we dont win the scudetto this season the team that ends up winning it better cheat so we win again
    who agrees with me

    He's the Murinho of Italy, always an exuse. The group that Inter have drawn in the CL is probablly not the easiest, but definetly not the hardest, i mean look at Chelsea's group.

    And yes your right, you need to beat the best to be the best, if you are truely the best team in the contest, the ones most likely of lifting the CL Trophy, then the group you have now should be a push over.

    Easy now, Mancini is the best person for the job at the moment. And I believe we have enough depth to succeed in both the league and CL.

    But I can't believe how easy AC's group is compared to ours!! considering they weren't even supposed to be in the CL in the 1st place.

    i dont think he is the best for inter he is always making excuses about fitness and stuff. 1 when we were losing to villareal he puts mijalovic in when we needed to score 2 he prefers to put adriano even when he is not doing good remember milan 1 inter 0 3 he brought pizarro and solari for nothing he didnt let them play 2 very good players especially solari 4 he brings cesar a player who wont even make it to the z team of brazil 5 he sells martins and this moratis fault and gives recoba the 100000000000000000 chance
    6 and finally he prefers julio cesar over toldo

    the only good thing is the 2 cups

    it is a tough group, but i think inter has the quality to win it. at least it definitely should win the group.

    Bayern Munich, still a hard team to beat, even without Ballack. They have a lot of experience on playing important games in Europe.
    idk much about Sporting, so i will keep my mouth shut about it.
    Moscow may not be a match for Inter, but playing in Moscow in October sucks.


    Sporting Lisbon v FC Internazionale 1-3 points

    FC Internazionale v Bayern Munich 1-3 points

    FC Internazionale v Spartak Moscow 3 points

    Spartak Moscow v FC Internazionale 1-3 points

    FC Internazionale v Sporting Lisbon 3 points

    Bayern Munich v FC Internazionale 0-3 points

    Bayern don't have a very good team this season, after Ballack left they are struggling bad, other day Barca beat them by four goals. Inter will qualify, they have the easier group.

    Easier than...?

    Bayern have played two games (Dortmund and Bochum) in the Bundesliiga and won both of them. The team has been weakened by Ballack's departure but it is still a solid team.

    Too be honest I wouldn't be surprized to see Lisbon cause a upset and qualify 2nd in place of Bayern, they are a very underrated team.

    Tricky group if you ask me.

    Bayern will be difficult even without Ballack and Ze Roberto.

    Spoting could potentially pull off an upset but im fairly sure Inter can beat them home and away.

    Also having to travel all the way over to Russia will be a bit of a drag especially because Inter will be challenging for the Scuddetto this year. ;)

    P.S AC Milan got off pretty easy didnt they? Hardest team in their group is Lille, they dont have to do any nasty travelling either. :(

    We got this! No need to sweat. Stankovic will come up big for us and Crespo will score the important goals off the bench. Bayern are nto rnearly the team they used to be but they are still a solid team. Don't know about SL never seen them. 1st place is obviously our goal and we got what it takes.
