Champions League

A look at what’s happening in the Champions League on Tuesday night:

AC 5 September 2022 FOURTH GROUP Rafael Leo, who scored two goals in the derby, has been a thorn in Milan’s side. Dinamo advanced to the group stage by defeating Shkupi, Ludogorets Razgrad, and Bodo/Glimt. The Qatari owners of Paris Saint-Germain are expecting a lot from their club in the Champions League as the Gulf country prepares to host the FIFA World Cup. — Champions League (@UEFAChampionsLeague) The Champions League returns on Tuesday GROUP E Battle-hardened in Europe after three qualifying rounds, Dinamo Zagreb kicks off its first group stage campaign since 2019-20 against a Chelsea squad in flux following a squad rebuild. If ever there was a time to catch defending champion Real Madrid on a bad day in the Champions League, it is now. Milan travels to Salzburg buoyed by its 3-2 derby victory over Inter Milan and the completion of its most recent ownership change, which includes a minority stake for the New York Yankees. That should provide information. Since 2018, Madrid has been beaten early in the group stage by Sheriff, Shakhtar Donetsk, CSKA Moscow, and Paris Saint-Germain. Chelsea’s squad has been refreshed for nearly $300 million in the summer transfer window, which means that players like Raheem Sterling, Wesley Fofana, and Kalidou Koulibaly are likely to make their Champions League debuts. While Milan makes consecutive Champions League appearances for the first time since 2013-14, Salzburg is in the group stage for the fourth consecutive season. Celtic, the Scottish champion, will host Madrid in Glasgow, where the record 14-time European champion won two titles, in 1960 and 2002. THE GROUP Celtic, the 1967 European champion, returns to the Premier League after a five-year absence and just three days after defeating city rival Rangers 4-0. On Saturday, Leipzig was defeated 4-0 by Eintracht Frankfurt before hosting Shakhtar in the group’s other game. Shakhtar has been unbeaten in three Ukrainian Premier League games despite missing eight months of competitive play due to the Russian military invasion. H GROUP Erling Haaland could be the signing that propels Manchester City to their first European title. Guardiola will find it difficult to leave out Haaland, who has already scored 10 goals in his first six Premier League games. He does have a ready-made replacement in another offseason signing, Julian Alvarez, who sat on the bench in Saturday’s 1-1 draw at Aston Villa. The Qatari owners of Paris Saint-Germain are expecting a lot from their club as the Gulf country prepares to host the World Cup. PSG has had a strong start to the French league, winning five games and drawing one. Beginning with a visit on Tuesday by a Juventus team that recently signed ngel Di Mara and Leandro Paredes from the French club. Kylian Mbappé and Neymar each have seven goals. However, he could start on the bench in the team’s first group game against Sevilla. The Norwegian striker has started games in the English Premier League on Wednesday and Saturday, so starting again on Tuesday may be a stretch, with City manager Pep Guardiola already stating that Haaland will not play three days a week during the team’s busy fixture schedule leading up to the World Cup. When and where can I watch Champions League games? It is PSG and Juventus’ first competitive meeting in 25 years. Lionel Messi assisted both of Mbappé’s goals in Saturday’s 3-0 win over Nantes. Two matches, including Chelsea vs. Dinamo Zagreb, begin at 10:15 p.m. IST, with the remaining matches beginning at 12:30 a.m. IST. Juventus has won only two of its first five Serie A matches, but Duan Vlahovi has four goals in four games despite being rested in Saturday’s 1-1 draw at Fiorentina. The UEFA Champions League group stage matches will be broadcast live in India on Sony Six, Sony Six HD, Sony TEN 1 and Sony TEN 1 HD television channels.
