Valery Karpin probably didnÃ¢ÂÂt expect tonightÃ¢ÂÂs game to be a table-top clash. Both sides on six points, the winner will almost certainly qualify for the next round. For the loser? Well, there are three more games, so never mind.ThatÃ¢ÂÂs the problem with the group stages, thereÃ¢ÂÂs a lack of urgency and suspense. CanÃ¢ÂÂt we just go back to a conventional knockout format? And make it just for, er, champions? Pretty please, UEFA?
