Champions League Tuesday Preview

Champions League favourites Manchester City are looking for their opening win of this season’s competition on Tuesday.

City suffered a shock home loss to Lyon in their Group F opener, but they will be looking to put things right in Germany as they face Hoffenheim.

Neighbours Manchester United began with victory against Young Boys in Group H – but they pressure is on Jose Mourinho to beat Valencia, after a week which has seen them knocked out of the League Cup by Derby, and lose in the Premier League at West Ham.

Elsewhere on Tuesday there are some mouthwatering contests such as Ajax’s trip to Bayern Munich and Real Madrid’s trip to Moscow to face CSKA.
