The Champions League is back this week but don’t get too excited.

That’s because the first knockout round will be played over two weeks.

With five Premier League teams still in the competition, some fans will have to wait for their team to kick off their hunt for the title of Kings of Europe.
This week Tottenham, Manchester City and Liverpool will hope to stake their claim.
Spurs go to Juventus, City visit Basel and the Reds are away at Porto.

Next week, it’s Chelsea and Manchester United’s turn, when they face Barcelona and Sevilla respectively.
But not to worry, there is more than enough action to keep you happy while you wait.
Real Madrid take on Paris St Germain on Wednesday night, with Cristiano Ronaldo and Neymar battling it out for the Ballon d’Or.
Holders Real are hoping to find some form and get back to their best after struggling to defend their La Liga title.
PSG meanwhile are flying in France and will have a moerse klomp confidence as they look to make a statement on the European stage.
