  11. Must do better - Kompany

    Manchester City v Juventus (19:45 BST)

    "This year has to be better." Short but sweet from Vincent Kompany ahead of their Champions League tie against Juventus.

    "It cannot be what it was in the previous years... We have been looking forward to the start of the competition since the disappointing game in Barcelona."

    Vincent Kompany

    Lest we forget that the Blues have not been beyond the last 16 in Europe. Their domestic form is flawless, however, so the omen's are good at least. 

    Juventus, on the other hand have lost two of their opening Serie A matches so far, drawing the other. Veteran goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon said: "We can't be happy with what has happened so far but we can't feel sorry for ourselves, far from it."

  13. Jury still out on van Gaal - Hoddle

    PSV Eindhoven v Manchester United (19:45 BST)

    Former England international Glenn Hoddle has tipped former PSV striker Memphis for a goal against his old club, but is less positive about Louis van Gaal.

    He told Zapsportz.com: “I think the jury is still out on Manchester United and Louis van Gaal’s reign there so far. It's been OK, some good results, but for me they have not really been tested as yet, and that test will come round the corner, obviously.

    “For me they would have to do a lot more if they have any possibility of going all the way in the Champions League."

  17. Fiji bring the noise

    Rugby World Cup

    Fiji have prepared for the atmosphere in Friday's World Cup opener - by training to the sound of England fans in full voice.

    Coach John McKee said: "That was part of our preparation. It was the normal crowd noise from Twickenham that was taken off some of the footage. 

    John McKee

    "It was good in those sessions we did it; it affected the intensity of the training. It's hard to hear calls and the communication in the game."

    Fiji have already opted to wear white and occupy the home dressing room after winning a coin toss to help their efforts to try and cause an upset.

    Tuesday's group match against PSV Eindhoven marks the return of Manchester United to the Champions League after their absence last season. Here's how they've fared in the past five years in the competition...

    • 2014-15 season - Failed to qualify

  21. Van Gaal wants European success

    PSV Eindhoven v Manchester United (19:45 BST)

    "I think the Champions League is a higher podium than the Premier League but maybe it's not like that." 

    Manager Louis van Gaal will be expected to deliver on both fronts but his pre-match quotes ahead of the PSV Eindhoven match showed how much he wants to succeed in Europe.

    Louis van Gaal

    He will have to do that without the services of Wayne Rooney, however, after the Englishman strained his hamstring in training for the weekend's win over Liverpool.

    Striker James Wilson and midfielder Andreas Pereira are in the squad despite neither making an appearance this season.

  22. Anyone for an ice cold beer?

    Ice Hockey

    Everyone enjoys a beer while watching sport, but not many sportsmen actually have a beer while playing sport.

    Well, that is unless you are University of Virginia goaltender Jake Anderson who, with his team leading 7-0, was handed a beer over the barrier by a fan and proceeded it down it. Anderson was swiftly ejected from the game.

    Ice hockey and a pint of beer

    His own university's match report said: "Jake Anderson had a shutout through two periods until he was disqualified for consuming an alcoholic beverage on the ice. 

    "This selfish act drew eerie parallels to the maturity of a middle schooler desperate for attention from his crush."

  23. No Aguero, no problem?

    Manchester City v Juventus (19:45 BST)

    The absence of striker Sergio Aguero would be dismal news for most Manchester City fans ahead of a Champions League match, but there have been goals everywhere in Manuel Pellegrini's side this season.

    Aguero, 27, picked up a knee injury during the 1-0 win at Crystal Palace on Saturday, however winger Raheem Sterling has recovered from a hamstring problem, while David Silva is available after ankle trouble.

    Sergio Aguero

    "I hope Aguero will be OK for the weekend but we must wait to see the result of the scans," said manager Manuel Pellegrini.

  24. PSV match 'special' for Memphis - Mata

    PSV Eindhoven v Manchester United (19:45 BST)

    Midfielder Juan Mata has been speaking ahead of Tuesday's Champions League tie against PSV Eindhoven, describing it as a "special" game for Memphis, who moved from the Dutch club to Old Trafford over the summer.

    He said: "It reminds me of my visit to Valencia with Chelsea a few months after my arrival in England.

    Juan Mata

    “PSV is an historic team in European football, although they haven't participated in the group stage in the last few years. I remember watching [PSV manager] Cocu when he was a player. He's doing a good job: they haven't been defeated so far this season."

  25. Sturridge key for Liverpool - Gerrard

    Football

    Former Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has said the return of striker Daniel Sturridge from injury is crucial for getting their season back on track.

    He also said the return of Philippe Coutinho from suspension and captain Jordan Henderson from injury will see Brendan Rodgers's side mount a fightback following a mixed start.

    Steven Gerrard

    He told a US radio station: "I think it's vital Daniel Sturridge is back playing and firing as soon as possible.

    "I think the key is the partnership he forms with [Christian] Benteke because if they click together there's plenty more big games to finish high up in the league."

  26. Grand Prix set to go ahead

    Formula 1

    The Singapore Grand Prix on Sunday will go ahead as planned, organisers insist, despite a hazardous haze lingering over the region.

    The Pollutant Standards Index (PSI) is currently recorded at "unhealthy" levels and a number of sporting events in the area were scrapped last weekend.

    BBC

    But a statement released by the circuit chiefs said: "Based on the current PSI levels, there are no plans to amend the published racing and entertainment programme.

    "We will continue to work closely with all the relevant government authorities to receive the best possible forecasts when they are available."

    History is either on their side or against them, if the data men are to be believed. While we wait to find out, here's a rundown of how the Blues have got on over the past four years since ending their 43-year wait for European football.

    BBC Radio Solent's Kevan James at Southampton: "Hampshire claimed maximum batting bonus points for the first time this season as Liam Dawson (140) hit his first Championship hundred of the summer.

    "Some lusty hitting at the end enabled Hampshire to reach their fifth point with five balls to spare.

    "It could have been worse for Yorkshire as Gary Balance (14*) has already been dropped in the gully. "

    "Bottom club Worcestershire are 223-4 in their first innings.
