Champions League Football is back tonight!
Just 59 days after Bayern Munich beat PSG to lift the prestigious trophy in Lisbon, the Champions League is back as we prepare for the start of the group stages.
The world’s best club competition gets underway with a mouthwatering fortnight of fixtures, as 32 teams battle it out for a place in the knockout stages.
Tuesday night will see teams in Group G and Group H battle for progression from the Group stage.
Khusoko Sports takes a look at the games on show tonight and potential results.
Dynamo Kyiv vs Juventus
The hosts will take pride in their six-game unbeaten run at home (W4, D2) in all competitions as they welcome the Italian giants.
This will be Andrea Pirlo’s first European match in charge as he aims to lead the Old Lady to European glory which has avoided them.
With Cristiano Ronaldo still out recovering from the coronavirus, Pirlo will be calling on the likes of Alvaro Morata and Paulo Dybala to get him the three points.
Prediction: 2 – 0
Barcelona vs Ferencvaros
A loss to Getafe over the weekend will remind the Catalans of the need to capitalize chances against oppositions that sit-back and defend, which is what the visitors will do at Nou Camp.
The Hungarian champions come to Spain with a 12-game unbeaten run in all competitions. It will however be a big call for them to keep out Lionel Messi and Co.
Prediction: 4 – 0
Chelsea vs Sevilla
Frank Lampard’s men come up against last season’s Europa League winners at the back of a disappointing league clash against Southampton where they let a three-goal lead slip away.
The Spanish side was lost their league match against Granada CF and will be hoping to amend the errors when they arrive at Stamford Bridge.
Prediction: 2 -2
Lazio vs Dortmund
Lazio make their first proper appearance in the UEFA Champions League since 2007. The Italian side’s last five home league wins have produced a 2-1 scoreline after a lost first half.
Marco Reus came from the bench to give the German side a vital 1-0 win over Hoffenheim over the weekend. Having started from the bench, Erling Haaland will be leading the side and will be calling on his goals in the campaign.
Prediction: 1 – 3
PSG vs Manchester United
Memories of that night in March 2019 will be alive among the French side that saw United register a stunning comeback to knock them out of the Champions League.
Neymar, who was not involved on that night, will be looking to cause problems on the Premier League’s backline that has not been steady, conceding in the first 45 minutes in every Premier League this far.
Prediction: 3 – 1
