Hello..this week on the podcast I was joined by Chris Mayer from 6 pointer, Dave Bevan from the 72.com and Scott Johnston from the footyblog.net. We discuss this week’s four Champions League games. The pod answers how they think Chelsea will be lining up in the future, also answer whether Serie A is going backwards in terms of quality.

In part two, we take a look at our respective leagues of interest Chris (Belgium) Andrew (France) Scott (Scotland) Dave (The Championship) – and we pick out a team, a outstanding player and a young prospect to look out for. And we also pick out the most underrated players from the Premier League this season.

So plenty to look forward to, I hope you enjoy the show.

Oh and forgot to mention it on the show, but this week’s guest predictor is John-Burn Murdoch from the Trequerista site. Good luck John.

The port city of Marseille will be buzzing at the arrival of Manchester United. Going well in the league and some favourable results in the Group Stage: Juliet JacquesGuardian writer and Ligue 1 fan gives you a glimpse of L’OM’s chances.

Olympique de Marseille enter their Champions League last 16 tie against Manchester United returning to form, but afflicted by injuries. Didier Deschamps’ side recovered excellently from a slow start in this competition, a brilliant 3-0 win at Spartak Moscow securing the French champions’ qualification from their group, but then won just one of their next eight Ligue 1 games as their title defence faltered.

A repeat of last year’s final. Both teams not where they want to be in the league. Chance to put domestic chors to one side and relive the final from May. Secret Interista Gav Stone famed editor of the Les Rosbifs website looks at how the Nerazzurri will fare.

It is a different Inter side who will be up against Bayern Munich this time around in the Champions League, compared to the one who beat The German side in the final last May. In between the Mourinho/Milito masterclass in Madrid and the first leg of this last 16 fixture, the nerazzurri have also been through a soul-sapping stint in the hands of Rafa Benitez, which did the club nor the coach any favours.

The long shot against the wannabe champions. There is no doubt who the bookies favourite is in this match but let Charlie Anderson, In Bed With Maradona’s Scandanavian expert make you think twice about the Danish side’s chances.

The most predictable thing about FC Copenhagen’s tactics in the Champions League has been their unpredictability. Coach Ståle Solbakken has not so much imposed a style or philosophy on his players as instilled tactical flexibility into them. The Norwegian has meticulously tweaked and shuffled his strategies to suit the circumstances, never afraid to make bold decisions and almost always getting them right.

An absolutely mouth-watering clash in the Stade Gerland this evening as the Galactico’s of Real Madrid take on the team that got the better of them last season Olympique Lyon. Martin Michelot writer for Ligue 1 Talk is confident of the home sides chances.

At the moment of the draw, Lyon fans wanted to avoid two teams: Barcelona and Real Madrid. The former for all the obvious reasons, and the latter because Real Madrid bears a sense of déjà-vu for Lyon fans. The two teams have played each other 6 times in the past 5 years; Lyon has the bragging rights as Les Gones have never lost against the Madridistas, and dealt the Casa Blanca a serious blow last season by eliminating them at the same stage of the competition. Lyon would eventually exit to the hands of Bayern Munich in the semi-finals.

Hey everyone.

Why not pop over to our sister site – French Football Weekly and download Episode 3 of the new podcast.

Really enjoying recording the show so far, with Chris Oakley in the driving seat it’s nice to be the one answering the questions, especially on a topic such as French football that I love.

Also check out Jimmy Briand’s overhead kick from Friday night, a wonderful goal and in my opinion better than Wayne Rooneys’.

Oh and before I go make sure if you enjoy the French chat to follow @FrenchftWeekly on twitter.

On paper the fixture between these two clubs is a mouth-watering contest. Hazard v Dzsudzsak, Sow v Berg, Toivonen v Gervinho. Two excellent teams, six wonderful players surely a must watch match. Alas it would be if all six were going to play.

Claudio Ranieri’s Roma haven’t exactly set Serie A on fire this year, escaping from a tough group can they escape their league inconsistency and find success in Europe. Stuart Harper from trequartista.net is the man to answer that question.

Wednesday sees Roma host Shakhtar Donetsk in round sixteen of the Champions League. Despite the Ukrainian outfit making their first ever appearance in the knockout stages, it is pure folly to assume that the Italians will inevitably progress against Mircea Lucescu’s ‘pitmen’.
