THE STORY TO COME
Round of 32
19.02.2009 v København (A) 20:05
26.02.2009 v København (H) 19:45
FC Copenhagen v City is drawn as Match 2 of the Round of 16 Draw. The winners of Match 2 will play the winners of Match 10 which is Aalborg BK of Denmark v RC Deportivo La Coruña of Spain, so if City can get past Copenhagen we could go on to play either our 3rd Danish or 2nd Spanish opponents.
The fact that City are more than capable of beating any of these three sides makes this a very real opportunity for City to at least reach the quarter finals of the competition. Better still, an eventual crack at AC Milan would be ideal.
Round of 16:
12 March 2009 and 18 - 19 March 2009
- Draw for the Quarter-finals, Semi-finals and Final:
Nyon, 20th March 2009 @ 1300 CET
Quarter-finals: 09 and 16 April 2009
Semi-finals: 30 April and 07 May 2009
Final: Istanbul's Şükrü Saracoğlu Stadium on Wednesday 20th May 2009.
PLEASE CONTRIBUTE TO THE CARL RAMSBOTTOM APPEAL:
On 27 November 2008, Carl travelled over to Germany to watch his beloved side play Schalke in the UEFA Cup, however due to a tragic incident at a German train station, Carl suffered life threatening injuries.
Due to this horrendous incident, Carl ended up in a coma for three weeks. He is currently in a rehabilitation unit in Germany while his family remain by his bedside.
The family are hopeful that Carl might be in a position to be repatriated to a rehab unit within the United Kingdom, hopefully sometime in March.
