This week is the start of the first round of Champions League group stage matches for 2014-15. There are some fantastic matches to watch for this Tuesday and Wednesday.
Tuesday’s big game to watch out for is the Group D match-up between Borussia Dortmund vs Arsenal. These two teams previously faced off in the Champions League group stages last year with both teams earning away wins.
On Wednesday the Group E match of the day features Bayern Munich vs Manchester City in what should be an exciting game. This is the second year in a row that they have been grouped together and last year saw them each win on the road.
It will also be interesting to see how Liverpool fare in their return to the Champions League. Some other teams to watch out for include Chelsea, Atletico Madrid, and Paris Saint-Germain.
Check out my predictions for each match in round 1 of the Champions League group stages.
