Celtic travel to Barcelona, Arsenal face Paris Saint-Germain and Leicester begin their adventure against Club Brugge

The Champions League group stage kicks off this week, with reigning champions Real Madrid hoping to be crowned kings of Europe again, although there is likely to be stiff competition as always.

There are four English teams participating, with Arsenal having a tough opener away to Paris Saint-Germain, while Manchester City have an easier first group game and Sergio Aguero returns for the clash against Monchengladbach.

Celtic are also in action on Tuesday night and they enter the lion’s den when meeting a Barcelona side at the Nou Camp, with Brendan Rodgers’ side fresh from beating Rangers in Saturday’s Old Firm clash.
