CHAMPIONS LEAGUE Tuesday Night PREVIEW

The UEFA Champions League returns tonight with two nights of action lined up and plenty of top quality fixtures in store.

After last seasons competition drawing to a close in odd circumstances without fans in Lisbon and in a one game format, this seasons tournament kicks off without fans across Europe as counties continue to battle the coronavirus pandemic.

Here’s your preview of the key fixtures from the opening night…

Barcelona v Ferencvaros

After a turbulent summer, Barcelona, with Lionel Messi, will be happy to be back playing football, and none more so than in their favourite competition.

The Catalan giants go into their opening fixture as huge favourites and should make light work of Celtic’s qualifying conquerors.

Chelsea v Sevilla

This looks set to be a classic tie as Frank Lampard’s new look Chelsea host the Europa League winners Sevilla at Stamford Bridge.

The Blues have been inconsistent this term in the Premier League and have made a habit of conceding goals, something they will have to address on the opening night as they face a well organised La Liga outfit who pose plenty of threat.

PSG v Manchester United

Manchester United travel to last seasons runners-up and the birthplace of the permanent appointment of Ole Gunnar Solskjær.

United haven’t made a particularly thrilling start to their domestic campaign, despite a 4-1 victory in their last outing. This will be a huge test for the three times European champions.

The Red Devils will also be without their club captain Harry Maguire in defence, while Edinson Cavani is currently deemed not fit enough yet to play against his former employers having only started training with United on Sunday.

PSG, meanwhile, have won their last five games in Ligue 1 and look set to provide plenty of problems.

Other Fixtures

Dynamo Kyiv v Juventus 17.55, Zenit St Petersburg v Club Brugge 17.55, Lazio v Dortmund 20.00, RB Leipzig 20.00, Rennes v Krasnodar 20.00
