Yeah a minimum of a month they have said. First leg isn't until mid feb though so hope he will be back in time.

Good draw for your lot.

Manchester City v Barcelona

AC Milan v Atletico Madrid
Bayer Leverkusen v Paris St-Germain
Galatasaray v Chelsea
Schalke v Real Madrid
Zenit St Petersburg v Dortmund
Arsenal v Bayern Munich

Game 2 is more hope than expectation. I do think City could overturn Barce if they have a good home game.

My predictions were pretty good with only Dortmund letting me down. I fancy all of the group winners to get through. No idea why PSG are being picked to lose against Leverkusen, whom even an off-form Utd managed to beat 5-0 away. The City game should be a cracker.

With pretty much everyone going for the majority if not all of the seeded teams, it shows just how important it was to finish top of the group and the gulf between the elite teams in Europe and the next lot.
