Champions League football is back again this week following plenty of drama in matchday one.

With the first three matchdays being squeezed across three weeks due to a shortened 2020/21 season, there is little respite as clubs aim to make an immediate impact in Europe.

Manchester United are looking to build on their impressive 2-1 win away at Paris Saint-Germain, but face a tough home test against an RB Leipzig side who reached last season’s semi-finals.

As for Chelsea, they travel to Russia to take on Krasnodar having drawn against Sevilla at Stamford Bridge last time out. Liverpool made it two wins out of two as they beat Midtjylland 2-0, while Manchester City cruised past Marseille 3-0.


The undoubted tie of the matchday, however, sees Juventus host Barcelona in Turin.
