The Champions League returns with some mouthwatering fixtures including Real Madrid vs Man City and Arsenal v Montpellier.
Premier League champions Manchester City have a difficult task this year as they are again in this season’s Group of Death. Drawn in Group D along with fellow domestic title winners Real Madrid, Borussia Dortmund and Ajax.
The first task is facing Mourinho’s men at the Bernabeu. Madrid have been in poor form recently and City will fancy their chances, however Real are looking to spark a comeback in form against the English champions.
Arsenal have never actually won the Champions League but their new and improved squad could be going places as they prepare to take on Montpellier, Olympiakos and Schalke in Group B.
Tomorrow they face Ligue 1 Champions Montpellier, with former striker Olivier Giroud perhaps playing against his old club. Arsenal will look to start off their Champions League campaign with a win but this will be no easy task, even if Montpellier are not regarded as a top team.
Chelsea and Manchester United play their games on Wednesday, with the current European Champions starting off their campaign against Italian Champions Juventus.
Nicknamed ‘The Old Lady’, Juve are now a force to be reckoned with, but at stamford bridge they will find it difficult against Torres and co.
Man Utd have a relatively easier game than the others, but complacency could kick in again like last season.
The Old Trafford side were eliminated last season in the group stage largely because of their complacency against the smaller clubs like Basel.
But Galatasary aren’t a bad team on any terms, but the Red devils are looking like they are the stronger team and should win it.
