Celtic vs. AC Milan:
Real Madrid vs. Bayern Munich:
Lille vs. Manchester United:
Ask Real Madrid and Chelsea recently. Ronaldo has gone - 'It was his decision' snapped Capello this weekend when a journalist pointed out that he'd scored twice in Siena, Beckham is back in the fold, but Cassano remains a problem. To forgive another player, or not to forgive, that is the question.
