Champions League 2011-2012: The Draw

The road in search of the Tenth European Cup is no stranger to Real Madrid, which will face to face with old 'friends' that already knows with the eyes closed. Lyon, always Lyon will be the greatest threat to Whites in a group stage that must pass without problems. Real Madrid will repeat duels against Ajax, with which already met last year, and will debut against Dinamo Zagreb, the only Croatian set this in the top continental tournament.

UEFA Champions League 2011-2012: Group D

Lyon is no longer a ghost

Bad memories that the French brought to Real Madrid were forgotten. Last season, Mourinho killed two birds with one stone. Ended its curse in the last-16 round and also the ghosts of the Lyon team that had ruined the lives of whites in more than one occasion. Little or nothing has changed the French team in the field since that day, but yes on the bench, now owned by Remi Garde. Toulalan is not, but the military force maintains its essence. The driver is the intermittent Gourcuff and the shooters are Gomis, Lisandro and Bastos, using the long distance machine gun. Still offers doubts its rear, with the goal defended by Lloris, a cat. Benzema and Real Madrid will return to Lyon, where never before in history has won the white team.

Ajax continues to reinvent itself

Ajax, another year, will be rival of Real Madrid in the group stage of the Champions League. The arrival of Frank de Boer to the bench after the elimination of the continental showpiece, was a breath of fresh air for the Dutch, accustomed to reinvent itself due to obligations of the script. The Dutch team no longer misses Luis Suarez. Ajax thinks in future, in long-term with Van der Wiel, Alderweired, Eriksen, Sulejmani and Janssen, a killer from the Twente. The Amsterdam Arena will be where the Real Madrid will finish the group stage.

Sammir's Dinamo

Nobody takes seriously the Croatians, but the Balkan team has its hidden weapons. Has reached this stage after knocking Swedish Malmoe on the previous round. Sammir, cheeky Brazilian footballer is the greatest threat of a Dinamo that already shown last year against Villarreal in the Europa League that can break pools. Dinamo Zagreb will check what it feels like to play against Madrid, which has never done and will do in its debut. In Zagreb begins the road of Mourinho's team. The aim is Munich.
