  3. 'We're aware of Ajax's new threats' - Lampard

    Ajax v (17:55 BST)


    Chelsea boss Frank Lampard says he is aware of Ajax's "new threats" as he prepares to face last season's Champions League semi-finalists.

    Striker Quincy Promes is one new signing that has impressed for the Dutch giants this season following the departure of Frenkie De Jong and Matthijs De Ligt for big money.

    Ajax are top of Group H with six points and also lead the Eredivisie.

    "We have confidence in ourselves, but it's a tough match," said Lampard.

    "I watched them play last year and I know their team has changed slightly. I'm very aware of the new threats they have.

    "They've won their two Champions League games convincingly."

  4. Stat attack

    English teams are unbeaten in their last 14 Champions League games against Belgian teams (W12 D2 L0) since Manchester United's 2-1 defeat at Anderlecht in October 2000 - five English teams have faced Belgian teams since then without losing (Leeds, Chelsea, Liverpool, Arsenal and Leicester).

  6. 'We have to improve away form' - Klopp

    Genk v Liverpool (20:00 BST)


    Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp says the Champions League holders must improve their away form to avoid an early exit from the competition.

    The Reds beat Tottenham in last season's final but lost all three away group games and in Napoli this season.

    Liverpool are second in Group E and play Genk in Belgium on Wednesday.

    "Last year we were lucky with how tight the group was that we could lose three times away and still have a chance to make it through the group," said Klopp.

    "That will not happen this year. It's completely different.

    "We know it's not historically good what we have done (in the away group games) in the last few years, but in general the Champions League was obviously really good.

    "We did the right things in the right moment but we don't rely on these things. We know we have to improve and we try again and again and again until it works out."

    Liverpool have three points from two games after beating Red Bull Salzburg in the group opener at Anfield.

    Pep reckons he's "extraordinary". Do you agree?

    Give me your thoughts on Raheem Sterling, as well as any other topics you'd like to discuss.

    How far can City go in this year's competition? Is Poch safe? Will Spurs win silverware?

    Who looks like an early front runner to lift the Champions League trophy?

  11. River Plate lose to Boca Juniors but reach Copa Libertadores final

    Defending champions River Plate reached the Copa Libertadores final despite losing the second leg of the semi-final against city rivals Boca Juniors.

    Boca substitute Jan Hurtado scored a late goal but River Plate won the first leg 2-0 so went through on aggregate.

    River won the 2018 final , which was postponed after Boca's team bus was attacked by opposing fans and then moved from Buenos Aires to Madrid.

    "It was a battle," said River midfielder Exequiel Palacios.

    "It was a derby and you play derbies like we played, to the death."

    The start of Tuesday's match was delayed for 15 minutes because of large amounts of ticker tape on the pitch.

    River will play Flamengo or Gremio - the Brazilian sides play their second leg on Wednesday with the score 1-1 - in the final in Santiago, Chile, on 23 November.

  13. Red Star Belgrade fans attend Tottenham game despite Uefa ban

    Tottenham have launched an investigation after more than 200 Red Star Belgrade fans "illegally" attended their side's Champions League game at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

    Red Star supporters had been banned from buying tickets after being charged for racist behaviour in July.

    Uefa will wait for the report from their match delegate before deciding whether to investigate.

    Stewards had to step in to intervene and "contain" the group.

    A club spokesman said: "Red Star supporters illegally obtained individual tickets on Level 5 and made their way around to one section of the stadium in order to congregate as a group.

    "Stewards and police contained the group as it was too large a number to eject.

    "We have launched a full investigation in order to understand how tickets have been acquired and shall take the strongest possible action against any individual found to have sold their ticket on."

  14. Manchester City's Rodri could be out for a month with hamstring injury

    Man City 5-1 Atalanta

    Manchester City fear midfielder Rodri could be out for a month after he picked up a suspected hamstring injury against Atalanta.

    The defensive midfielder has started as a central defender in City's last two games with first-choice Aymeric Laporte injured.

    "Hopefully it will be 10 days if [his hamstring] is not broken," manager Pep Guardiola said.

    "If it is broken it will be three weeks or one month."

    City started the season with Laporte and Nicolas Otamendi as their first-choice pairing but Guardiola has played midfielders Rodri and Fernandinho at the back this week.

    Otamendi and John Stones came on in the second half against the Italian side.

    "I didn't speak with Rodri or the doctor just yet but looks like a hamstring," Guardiola said.

    "When one guy runs and puts their hand in the hamstring position, it is a hamstring. It looks like."

  16. Madrid win first Champions League game of the season

    Galatasaray 0-1 Real Madrid

    Real Madrid

    Real Madrid

    Real Madrid collected their first Champions League victory of the season at Galatasaray to ease the pressure on manager Zinedine Zidane.

    The La Liga side suffered a shock league defeat against Mallorca at the weekend and had failed to win their opening two group games, with reports in Spain suggesting Frenchman Zidane could be sacked if they lost in Istanbul.

    But Toni Kroos' deflected first-half strike following Eden Hazard's cutback was enough to seal the three points.

    Big money summer signing Hazard should have made it a more comfortable scoreline for the 13-time European champions but somehow struck the crossbar from six yards out with an open goal.

    Turkish champions Galatasaray provided plenty of goalscoring threat but could not find the leveller with on-loan Brighton striker Florian Andone thwarted twice by sharp Thibaut Courtois saves and Steven Nzonzi heading over from close range late on.

    Real's win moves them up to second in Group A, five points behind leaders Paris St-Germain who eased past Club Bruges.

  17. Dybala sees double

    Juventus 2-1 Lokomotiv Moscow

    Paulo Dybala scored two late goals as Juventus came from behind to beat Lokomotiv Moscow in the Champions League.

    Lokomotiv took the lead in the first half after Aleksei Miranchuk fired past ex-Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny on the half-hour mark.

    Despite dominating possession against the three-time Russian Premier League winners, it took until the 77th minute for Dybala to curl a left-footed effort past Lokomotiv goalkeeper Guilherme to draw the game level.

    Two minutes later the Argentine forward tucked home Alex Sandro's saved shot to seal all three points for Maurizio Sarri's team.

    Juventus are now level with Atletico Madrid on seven points at the top of Group D following the Spanish side's 1-0 win over Bayern Leverkusen in Madrid.

    Former Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata came off the bench to score a late header to extend Atletico's unbeaten run to 12 home games in Uefa competitions.
