The memory of that unexciting night in Athens can finally be extinguished on August 30th, when UEFA hold the draw for the group stage of the Champions League. It'll kick off two days of glitz and ping pong balls, with a meaningless exhibition match thrown in for good measure.
Besides setting the early schedule for the two European cups, UEFA's Monaco extravaganza will culminate with the UEFA Super Cup. Sevilla will meet Milan at the Stade Louis II stadium on Friday, August 31st. It'll be only the fifth time in the game's 35 year history that a team has had the opportunity to defend it's title.
