Show Preview

The UEFA Champions League kicks off this week with 16 matches over the next two days. In today’s games there are some stunning clashes between Europe’s greatest clubs starting at 5:00am AEST.

Reigning champions Chelsea along with powerhouses Barcelona, Manchester United, Bayern Munich and Juventus are all on display today. Join The Roar for live scores and an around the grounds blog starting from 4:50am (AEST).

The Champions League isn’t won in the first round of the Group stages but the big contenders can certainly start to make their lives easier by getting three points in the bag.

In Group F, most eyes will be on Manchester United. The Red Devils have a line up full of talent including returning hero Cristiano Ronaldo. But can Ole Gunnar Solskjær turn this team of champions into a champion team?

Group G is one of the most competitive in the competition. There are none of the really big teams and each of Sevilla, Salzburg and Lille will be thinking that they can get a number one spot to carry them through to an easier draw in the next round. With all teams playing tonight it’ll be interesting to see who can make the first move.

In Group H, reigning champions Chelsea will be confident of a home win over Zenit – the pair haven’t met so far in this competition’s history but the Blues are unbeaten in six games against Russian sides. No reigning champion has ever lost the first game of their defence at home, ever and it won’t happen today.

In the other Group H match up, many eyes will be on Juventus to see how they perform after an average Serie A season and without Ronaldo.

The final set of games today come from Group E and presents the mouth watering tie of Barcelona v Bayern Munich. Bayern are likely to romp home at the top of this group and with some question marks on a post Messi Barca, it’ll be exciting to see if the Spanish giants can put up a strong performance first game up against the Group favourites.

Predictions
Sevilla v RB Salzburg – Sevilla to win 2 – 1
Young Boys v Man Utd – Man Utd to win 0 – 2
