Red Star out but four still in the running

Bayern still have work to do if they are to reach the last 32 of this season’s UEFA Cup. The Reds were not in action on the fourth matchday in Group F, when the only team definitely knocked out were Red Star Belgrade, beaten 1-0 at home by Bolton Wanderers.

English Premier League side Bolton took the points at the Marakana stadium in the Serbian capital with a goal from captain Gavin McCann on the stroke of half-time. The Trotters now lead the section on six points, but have completed their fixtures and must await developments in the last round of matches on 19 December before knowing whether they are through.

<b>Braga still in contention</b>

In the evening’s other match, Aris Salonika and SC Braga played out a 1-1 draw. Roland Linz fired the Portuguese visitors ahead on just six minutes, but Guiaro Ronaldo struck a deserved equaliser for the Greeks, who join Bayern on five points but move ahead of the Bavarians into second on goal difference.

After a third draw in succession, Braga can seal a berth in the next round with a win by at least two clear goals at home to Red Star on the last day. Should they fail to hit that target, a draw would be enough for Bayern at home to Aris.

<b>Winning group brings benefits</b>

However, the Bavarians can only win the section by beating Aris. Top spot in the group brings a number of advantages: a tie against a side which finished third in one of the other groups, and the return match at home. Finishing second entails a meeting with one of the eight teams entering the competition from the Champions League.

considering winning the Group will get us a tie with one of the following (almost certainly looking at the current tables) Copenhagen/Panionios/Anderlecht/FC Zurich/Brann or AEK Athens, it is vital no leniency is shown against Aris.

1:0 will do for me although I wish for a more comfortable 3:0!!

Why should we be scared of any of the teams you mentioned? I wouldn't mind us getting some strong opponents so that we start seeing this new team pushed to the limits, because we're not quite seeing that in the Bundesliga.
