Matchday 5's other day that doesn't include Bayern Muncih

Yesterday was painful. Bayern Munich lost to Manchester City in stoppage time despite playing down a man for 70 minutes and taking the lead. We also had to watch Sergio Aguero celebrate scoring a goal three times.

Today is the day we exorcise those demons by watching other teams get slaughtered in the same fashion. There will be much rejoicing.

By far the cream of the crop today (in terms of games to watch) is Borussia Dortmund against Arsenal. Two powerhouses of German and English football going at it amid numerous injury concerns on both sides and the inability to defend? Sounds like a ton of fun. While Dortmund have already advanced out of their group thanks to 4 wins in their first 4 matches, Arsenal have some work to do in a tough group that also includes Anderlecht and Galatasaray.

Here are the rest of the matches in order of should be viewed to skippable:

Bayer Leverkusen vs Monaco - Roger Schmidt is always fun to watch. Deal with it.

FC Basel vs. Real Madrid - Basel pulls off massive upsets like they're going out of style.

Anderlecht vs. Galatasaray - Better then the others. Worse then the others.

Atletico Madrid vs. Olympiakos - Atletico Madrid is fun to watch. Olympiakos is ugh.

Comin Moti vs. Liverpool - Liverpool is lol'ing all over the place. Ludogorets is Cosmin Moti.

Malmo vs. Juventus - Malmo is thoroughly outclassed in Europe.
