Preview of Wednesday's Champions League matches

The UEFA Champions League returns this week, with fans across the globe set to witness some mouth-watering fixtures.

Preview of Wednesday's Champions League matches

While Tuesday presents some of the most exciting games, the likes of Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, Tottenham and Manchester City will all take to the field on Wednesday, September 18, 2019.

The biggest fixture can definitely be found in Group A, where Real Madrid will be locking horns with Paris Saint-Germain.

The Spanish giants, who have won the Champions League 13 times, will travel to the Parc des Princes for the mammoth clash.

For Real Madrid, the return of Eden Hazard will be a huge boost, with the former Chelsea star making his debut over the weekend after earlier being sidelined by an injury.

PSG will, however, miss the services of a number of key players, including Neymar (suspended) and Kylian Mbappe (injured).

The other Group A fixture will see Belgian giants Club Brugge take on Turkish side Galatasaray.

In Group B, Tottenham will look to put last season’s disappointment behind them when they travel to Olympiakos.

Meanwhile, Bayern Munich have a rather easier fixture, with the Bavarians set to face Red Star Belgrade.

In Group C, Pep Guardiola and his Manchester City side will travel to Ukraine to take on Shakhtar Donetsk, while Dinamo Zagreb will also host Serie A side Atalanta.

One of the groups of death in this year’s champions league is Group D, which contains Atletico Madrid, Juventus and Bayer Leverkusen.

Atletico Madrid will lock horns with Juventus in a repeat of last season’s round of 16 game. Cristiano Ronaldo stole the show in that fixture and it remains to be seen if the Portuguese can replicate the feat.

The last fixture on Wednesday will see Bayer Leverkusen will play as hosts to Russian side Lokomotiv Moscow.
