They were already a couple of interesting games taking place in this competition sport, but the best is yet to come.
This week promises to be special, with four of the best squads going head to head in games that could decide their fate in the most important tournament.
PSG is dominating the domestic championship as in en route to winning another title, with no competitors standing to scrutiny. In the Champions League they fare equally well, with six points after two games but tonight they will take on one of the perennial favorites.
Real Madrid has won the tournament two years ago and the Spanish team will come to Paris trying to win all three points, rather than defend 90 minutes.
Until now, the French outfits didn’t have the chance to put his defensive to the test but they will need to make the most of this opportunity. The good news is that no players are injured or suspended ahead of this fixture, so they can feature the most competitive starting 11.
Ibrahimovic and Cavani are guaranteed to spearhead the offensive and they should give Real Madrid plenty of headaches, given the fact that the visitors will play without a few midfielders.
An equally interesting game is the one scheduled to take place at Emirates Stadium, where Arsenal welcomes Bayern Munich. Once again, it is the visiting team that is credited with the first chance by bookmakers, with the Germans winning the trophy three years ago.
Just like PSG, they dominate the Bundesliga and already have a significant advantage over the pack that they need not to worry about winning the title again.
A trip to London is always difficult regardless of the team the Germans are about to face, but Arsenal proved to be a very offensive minded formation recently. They dismantled Manchester United by scoring three goals in less than 15 minutes and pose a real threat to the Germans.
On the other hand, Bayern has a more balanced squad, with capable layers in all compartments and is not going to be intimidated by the atmosphere on this great arena. Anything can happen, but punters anticipate a match with plenty of goals.
