Chelsea playing Atletico Madrid tonight and TV3 in their wisdom are showing Man United v CSKA  ::)
Even the Celtic game would have been a better watch.

Do the CL groups get decided on just normal league format or if two teams are equal does it come down to head to head?

Head to head, mini league with the results between the 3 teams involved taken into account in the case 3 teams finishing tied which may happen in Uniteds group

Comfortable in the end for Barca. 14 ahead of Madrid. Zidane might be in trouble after that. Am genuinely shocked Ramos didn't lose the head and get sent off.

Ramos is a clampit! Should have been red! Ronaldo was very poor

Itís mad that a few months ago Real were considered an unbeatable dynasty while Barca looked to be a shambles, losing Neymar and lying about Messi signing a new contract.

I think Barca are still a bit of a shambles to be honest, it's just that Madrid are even worse. Aleix Vidal scoring against them is the height of indignity.

Success in the Champions league might save Zidanes job then again the club sacked their manager before after winning the champions league.

Valverde has brought some organisation to Barca, they don't concede as many goals now. They are not quite there on the scoring front with both Messi and Suarez out of sorts for them I thought Iniesta and Roberto were excellent yesterday. Ramos and Marcello got away with a lot. Ronaldo is a first class player but unfortunately he is also a first class w@@ker.

Bale looked far more likely to cause trouble after he came on than Ronaldo did all day. Ronaldo also had a few shots from ridiculous positions that he had no business taking. They badly needed Isco, He's the one that's been making them tick for the last eighteen months or so.

I'd say there are very few in Barcelona who imagined that Dembele would be returning to an undefeated team nine clear at the top of the league when he went down.

another loss for real madrid today, 1-0 at home to villarreal. they now sit 4th, 16 points behind barcelona. zidane will do well to see the season out at this rate.

Cracking breakaway goal with a beautiful finish that beat them too. First time they've ever won in Madrid.

Tottenham have got off to the worst possible start tonight.
