Aren't they currently top of the Bundesliga though, there are no easy games in the Champions League.

I didn't say they were easy. I said that out of the possible lot, they are the easiest IMO. But they got through, so they aren't pushovers.

Leipiz are are really good attacking team with a great young manager who in other circumstances I would have hoped we would have gone for. They are the Ajax of last year and the Monaco of the year before ... a dangerous high energy team but not unbeatable at all

The Dortmund of last season, Mourinho will sort them out.

Indeed. And if we don't score more goals than they do, we won't progress any further in the competition.

Technically speaking not true... we could draw 0-0 at our gaff and then draw 1-1 at their place and go through on away goals without scoring more goals than they did.........

It's a cliche, but if we turn up, we can beat absolutely anyone. This is a very favourable draw when you consider who we could have got. Yes, they are playing well, but so were Ajax in last years CL. Plus we have Jose in charge. This is one of two draws most of us would have picked.
