Open Thread for Wednesday Group Stage Matches

Lars Baron

With FC Bayern taking a big step towards CL survival with yesterday's win, the focus turns (at least for a day) to the other side of the schedule. Two German sides are in action today, with Borussia Dortmund hosting Real Madrid and Schalke visiting Arsenal.

A few other interesting matches, too, as Manches' City battles Ajax and PSG travels to Zagreb. Even AC Milan vs. Malaga could be fun, with those clubs fighting for the top of their group.

Not strictly Bayern-related so feel free to ignore (should be back with something better tonight or tomorrow). But if you're interested in watching along with everyone else, consider this your open thread. Some line-ups:

For BVB:

Dowski

Grosskreutz - Goetze - Reus

Kehl - Bender

Schmelzer - Hummels - Subotic - Piz

Weidenfeller

For Real Madrid:

Benzo

Ronaldo - Oezil - Angel D

Alonso - Khedira

Essian - Pepe - Varane - Ramos

Casillas

For Schalke:

KJH

Afellay - Holtby - Farfan

Neustadter - Hoelger

Fuchs - Matip - Hoewedes - Uchida

Unnerstall

For Arsenal:

Gervinho

Cazorla

Poldi - Arteta - Coquelin (??) - Ramsey

Santos - Vermaelen - Merte - Jenkinson

Mannone

Kuba is still nursing that ankle injury, but Real Madrid has some injury problems of their own. There will be room, if Dortmund can put together a sustained attack. But if you take a swing at Real Madrid and miss, you can find yourself badly hurt before you know what hit you.

As always, try to keep it clean.
