Champions League: Here We Go Again

If you're like me, you're a little sad today now that Euro 2008 has come and gone and we have to wait a full month and a half for any meaningful games to return. But fear not, Champions League qualifying is never far away, and the first and second round qualifiers will learn their fate in tomorrow's draw.

There aren't a lot of big names in the first-round draw. In fact, I'm at a loss for what some of the three-letter country abbreviations represent. (FRO? MNE? SMR?) In round two, some better-known sides join the fray including UEFA Cup runners-up Glasgow Rangers, Panathinaikos from Greece and Turkey's Fenerbah├že. who are expected to add victorious Euro manager Luis Aragones as their head coach. First round matches start July 15.
