Heard that before? One suggestion was to have the 20 teams from two nations play each other in order of position - 1st versus 1st, 2nd versus 2nd and so on - and calculate a score based on the outcomes. This Ryder Cup style scenario will never happen, of course, but this week we will see an Anglo-Germanic playoff of sorts on the continental stage.
Liverpool's return to European action for the first time in five years and Real Madrid's shaky start to the season dominate the start of the new battle for the Champions League title on Tuesday.

Released in the summer and seemingly unhappy that he didn't have the chance to say goodbye to the Old Trafford fans, Ferdinand was the most likely candidate to lift the lid on Moyes' time at United, as he has done in his book, the rather depressingly titled '#2Sides', serialised in The Sun this week.
Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti believes Tuesday's Champions League Group B opener at home to Basel will be a good chance for the holders to put a poor start to their domestic campaign behind them. Madrid were beaten 2-1 by champions Atletico Madrid at the Bernabeu on Saturday, their second successive La Liga reverse, and some of the club's notoriously demanding fans made their anger clear by roundly whistling captain and goalkeeper Iker Casillas.
