Guzan and Villa Travel to Hamburg

Brad Guzan and Aston Villa are taking their UEFA Cup campaign to Germany tonight, when they take on Hamburg at the HSH Nordbank Arena. Kickoff for the game starts around 3 p.m. ET, and you can see the game live on Setanta Sports.

Hamburg and Villa are both assured of their spots in the final 32 of the tournament, with Ajax also booking their place from Group F. However, there is much on the line in terms of the upcoming draw. Here's why, according to UEFA:

"Group winners will be paired with third-placed sides from other UEFA Cup sections, while second-placed finishers will be drawn against one of the eight sides who finished third in the UEFA Champions League groups. The UEFA Cup group winners and runners-up will play the second leg at home."

So lots to play for still for Guzan and his team, we'll be back with highlights later.
