Who do you want as opponents? A rather easy group with BATE and Galati or a real challenge with City and Napoli?

    I personally would like to see a fairly easy draw. This is a team with a very new-look defense (Boateng, Rafinha, Neuer in goal) that could use some time to sort everything out, and it would also be great to see Bayern get up to the top of the Bundesliga table before facing down anyone too serious in the CL. Fortunately, it looks like the toughest team Bayern can possibly face is Man City, which is actually a pretty interesting match and not a killer (as Barcelona, Real, and possibly Man U would be).
