Champions League 2014 live at the Highlander Pub

The new season of the Champions League is upon us. The draw on August 30th distributed the eight groups of four teams and there are definitely a couple of those groups where no clear favourites have been predicted. Surely, there will be another exciting group stage in front of us and the eventual winners won't be determined until the very last minute.

Group A seems to be the one with Atletico Madrid and Borussia Dortmuind standing out but you cannot really underestimate Brugge and Monaco who have had some big runs in the European tournaments. 

Group B has the all time favourites from Barcelona who will be tested by the in-form Tottenham Hostpur, the Dutch Champions from PSV and the Italian Giants from Inter who are back in the League after a few years of absence. 

Group C is by far the most thrilling featuring the super expensive squad of PSG who will be tested by the mighty Liverpool and Ancelotti's Napoli as well as the League's Champions from 1991 - Red Star Belgrade.

Group D seems to be the least atractive one. Well that comes from the point of view of an independent fan. Surely the games will be full of tension there as well having the Russian Champions from Lokomotiv Moscow, the Turkish Champions from Galatasaray, the Porutguese Giants of Porto - winners of the the League on a couple of occasions and then the unpredictable team of Schalke 04 who have been a factor in the Bundesliga in the recent years. 

Group E has the super favourites from Bayern Munich who will be challenged by the Dutch Giants from Ajax and Benfica who are always a threat... Little can be said about AEK Athens and no one really expects to make any miracles but who knows, the ball is round and this is the Champions League.

Group F had Manchester City who can barely be troubled by the other three - Shakhtar Donetsk, Hoffenheim and Lyon. One of the other three will be claiming the second spot in this group. The fact is that Shaktar and Man City were in the same group last year and they both qualified for the direct eliminations.

Group G has the reigning Champions of Real Madrid and la Magica Roma... Those two should be seen in the next stage in February unless they happen to underestimate the competition of CSKA Moscow and Viktoria Plzen...

Group H is featuring Ronaldo's Juventus and Manchester United as clear favourites. The troubled and inconsistent  side of Mourinho though can face plenty of difficulties against Valencia... Wouldn't really count the Swiss Champs - the Young Boys - in this contest.

This is our brief analysis of the upcoming clashes in the Champions League. There will be always 2 matches scheduled at 7pm Roman Time and the other 6 will be from 9pm. We will be able to broadcast all six games simultaneously from the second batch of games if all of them get requested. If you are an ultimate football fan and happen to be in Rome for the occasion just make your way to the Highlander for the best atmosphere in town. Below you can see all the fixtures from the first two rounds:

* upon request - the games that are marked "upon request" need to be requested at least a couple of hours before the start of those. Once you request them you need to be at The Highlander at least 30 minutes before kick off time (or, for the late games 30 min before our closing time)! We cannot guarantee their broadcasting on our screens if you arrive at The Highlander in the last minute before their start or even worse - when they have already started

 

** already requested - the games that have been "already requested" might not be necessarily televised if the people who have requested them fail to arrive 30 min prior to the start of those games (or, for the late games 30 before the closing time). Generally those games coincide with many other venues and sometimes other guests end up requesting additional events in the last minute. Certainly we accomodate them in case the customers who have made the original requests do not show up.
