Nah, I think we'll draw at Giuseppe Meazza and will get fucked at Old Trafford.

Believe me, we can beat any team in the world. Why not start with last year's winner?

Because we haven't impressed in CL since 2003.

I know we can beat any team in Serie A but can we beat any team in CL? I doubt that. At least for this moment.

I'm happy with the draw.

As for games, I'm quite confident we'll do well at Old Trafford. I'm a little bit more worried about the home game. So I guess it's good we'll start the other way around this time.

That's the most likely scenario. TBh I can see us losing at home even.

Come on, they are not so tough. With all key players in-form we can advance.

Pretty tough shit right from the start then. :D

Our only hope is ManU isn't SO hungry anymore as before since they won it last season. Other than that, their quality is above us. Now we will see what is the level of our midfield as they face one of the best midfields in the world. Now Mourinho's skills take a real test.

Woah...ManU. I don't feel so bad about this.

Like someone said, a good test, right off the bat. At least if we lose it, it won't be so embarassing. But if we (can) win it, this will be a great morale booster moving forward.

Pajo, is this gonna be a torture? :D

The winners have gone out in the first knockout round in all of the last 4 years and Ferguson has only beaten Mourinho once in 12 attempts so good luck to Inter, better luck than last year I hope.

Please knock them out :D

Darky, I'm sure he's watching :p

I'm actually excited with this draw. But kinda scary remembering last year around this time we're all also pumped up knowing we're gonna see Pool in 3 months time.

We got the most pathetic team in football history and we can be immortal by beating the hell out of them!

Anything can happen. If they have a bad day and we have a good day in the first leg and win say 2-0, we could play catenaccio in the second and advance. But if we get a draw at home or a 2-1 victory we have little to no chance because our midfield will be useless at Old trafford. Unless Mourinho somehow switches it up and finds a capable midfield, which is what I'm hoping for, we will not advance.

I'm pretty confident that our defense can shut them down.
