Europe’s biggest teams kick off the UEFA Champions League tournament on Tuesday.
The UEFA Champions League returns with holders Manchester City in action on Tuesday.
Here are five matches to follow:
Manchester City vs Red Star Belgrade
Or: Etihad Stadium, Manchester, England
When: 19:00 GMT
Man City hope to continue their unbeaten streak from last season when they take on Serbian side Red Star Belgrade.
The hosts will be without the injured John Stones, Jack Grealish, Mateo Kovacic and Kevin de Bruyne. However, Erling Haaland, who was the top scorer in the Champions League last season, is expected to start.
Feyenoord vs Celtic
Or: Feyenoord Stadium, Rotterdam, Netherlands
When: 19:00 GMT
Injuries ravaged both teams, national champions of their respective leagues.
Celtic are without defenders Cameron Carter-Vickers, Maik Nawrocki, Stephen Welsh and Yuki Kobayashi, with wingers Liel Abada and Marco Tilio also missing.
Feyenoord are without injured goalkeeper Justin Bijlow while striker Santiago Gimenez is suspended. But the Eredivisie side are in fine form having scored six, five and then six again in their last three matches.
In their last Champions League group stage campaign in 2017, the Dutch team won once and lost five of their matches.
AC Milan vs Newcastle
Or: San Siro, Milan, Italy
When: 16:45 GMT
Newcastle are back in Europe’s biggest club tournament after a 20-year absence. They have the daunting task of facing last season’s semi-finalists AC Milan at the San Siro, but can be encouraged by the fact that the Italian side have won just one of their last 11 matches against an English team.
The English side have former Milan midfielder Sandro Tonali in their side after joining the Magpies in July.
This is Milan’s 20th Champions League campaign, the second of any Italian team after Juventus (23). They have crashed out of the first round of the group stages once in the last 14 campaigns (2021-22).
Paris Saint-Germain vs. Borussia Dortmund
Or: Parc des Princes, Paris, France
When: 19:00 GMT
The last time these two teams met was in the Round of 16 of the 2019-20 campaign. PSG lost their away leg 2-1 but won the second leg 2-0 before eventually advancing to the final.
The eternal French champions, deprived of Neymar and Lionel Messi, will count on their star player Kylian Mbappe to score in a group which also includes AC Milan and Newcastle.
Borussia Dortmund’s record against French teams in 14 matches is mixed, with the German side winning eight and losing six. But in their recent league match against Freiburg, Dortmund scored six goals, so tonight’s entertainment seems assured.
Barcelona vs Antwerp
Or: Lluis Companys Olympic Stadium, Barcelona, Spain
Or: 19:00 GMT
Reigning La Liga champions Barcelona have failed to advance out of the Champions League group stage in their last two tries.
Xavi Hernandez’s side, fresh from an impressive 5-0 win over Real Betis in La Liga, will host the Belgian champions at the Olympic Stadium as Barcelona’s usual Camp Nou pitch is being renovated.
Antwerp are coached by former Barcelona midfielder Mark van Bommel, and the Dutchman said his team would not be afraid to test themselves and would try to play his aggressive, physical and attacking style.
