My favorite team, Steaua Bucharest will be playing against Galatasaray Istanbul. I think it will be a tough game, but both teams have equal odds to go through. Steaua played in the Champions League groups the last two years and it has some experienced players. It remains to be seen what the new players the club just transfered will do. Galatasaray has always been a good team, even if lately they didn't perform like they used to. And let's remember they come from Turkey, and we've seen what the Turks did in Euro 2008. The other two teams I cheer for, Barcelona and Juventus won't have any problems in going through to the group stage.
