Champions League – Wednesday (selected games)
Real Madrid vs Roma
It’s a brave new world in Europe as the reigning champions return to the competition without two of their biggest figureheads in Cristiano Ronaldo and Zinedine Zidane. Will new head coach Julen Lopetegui successfully manage the transition?
Real come into the game off the back of a disappointing draw in La Liga against Athletic Bilbao, and will have to work hard against a dogged Roma side who enjoyed a surprise run to the semi-finals in 2017-18.
Valencia vs Juventus
Juve have a golden opportunity to get some early points on the board against a Valencia side without a league win so far this season and hoveringly dangerously above the relegation zone.
Cristiano Ronaldo finally got off the mark in the famous black and white stripes at the weekend, and will be hungry to show Real Madrid what they will be missing in Europe this season.
Man City vs Lyon
Reigning Premier League champions Manchester City have the perfect opportunity to get their Champions League campaign motoring against a Lyon side who have made a low-key start to the current Ligue 1 season
Bruno Génésio’s side regularly qualify for this competition but rarely threaten an extended stay after Christmas. Upcoming ties against Shakhtar Donetsk and Hoffenheim should offer a more realistic path to progressing out the group stages.
Young Boys vs Man Utd
Jose Mourinho’s side are finally starting to look like the side that finished a strong second in the Premier League in 2017/18 after back-to-back victories against Burnley and Watford, and will fancy their chances of gaining an early stranglehold on Group H against Champions League novices, Young Boys.
The reigning Swiss champions finally reached the group stages after years of near-misses, but will surely find the step-up in class too much to overly trouble the rest of the contenders in their group.
