Will Pep Guardiola finally guide Manchester City to Champions League glory this season?
Will Pep Guardiola finally guide Manchester City to Champions League glory this season?

There was no shortage of drama last night as the Champions League group stage got going — and tonight serves up eight more mouthwatering matches.

As always, we have lined up a feast of preview content for you to enjoy before the action begins.

Champions League continues

Manchester United slipped to a late defeat last night before defending champions Chelsea picked up a win as the English clubs enjoyed mixed fortunes.

Liverpool and Manchester City will be hoping to follow the example set by Thomas Tuchel's Blues when they kick off their European campaigns.

The Reds, six-time winners of the competition, welcome a resurgent AC Milan to Anfield — and it is a travelling squad packed with familiar faces.

We focus on Milan marksman Olivier Giroud, who has started his spell in Italy by netting two goals in two Serie A appearances. 

City were widely considered as favourites to lift the Champions League last season but came unstuck at the final hurdle against Chelsea. 

As Pep Guardiola and Co ready themselves for another tilt at glory, we cast our eye over makeshift frontman Ferran Torres and consider whether the Spaniard could provide the goals to fire the Citizens to success this season.

The evening’s most eye-catching game comes from the San Siro as Inter Milan host the mighty Real Madrid.

Ahead of that clash, we turn the spotlight on Karim Benzema, who can climb even higher up the competition’s all-time goalscoring ranks if he nets again in Italy. 

And if you want to ensure you are clued up on all eight Champions League fixtures, check out our in-depth preview with key facts and stats for every match.
