GIANLUCA VIALLI, the Chelsea manager, says Lazio are the best football club in Europe this season and he's not wrong.

Top of Serie A and with strength throughout their squad, Lazio look nailed on to progress from their Champions' League group - also containing Chelsea, Marseilles and Feyenoord - and a solid bet to go all the way. Best outsiders might be Fiorentina. They finished their previous group in style, beating Arsenal and drawing 3-3 with Barcelona.

Juventus look a good bet to win the Uefa Cup, having drawn the moderate Greek outfit Olympiakos in the third round.
