Champions League

What to watch in the European cups, which started today?

The European Cups start on Tuesday and Ondrej Lingr and David Jurásek are entering the Champions League. But the European and Conference League will also offer interesting matches, for example the story of Brighton.



The Champions League matches start on Tuesday, followed by the Europa League and European Conference League on the following days. Check out the highlights from the European Cups. 

Feyenoord vs. Celtic

It’s clear Ondrej Lingr is going into action for the first time. He scores his first goal in the Netherlands this weekend, this time at De Kuip in a match that he and his teammates must manage with promotion ambitions. But even the Scots smell a chance.

AC Milan vs. Newcastle

Perhaps the match of the round, Newcastle’s return to the Champions League is much anticipated. The Magpies aren’t quite rolling in the league, just six points from five rounds, on the other hand the Italians took a five in the derby with Inter at the weekend. Who will bounce back to a better tomorrow?

Bayern vs. Manchester United

Big names without ideal form, yet a big game. Manchester United in particular need to improve, it will be tough at the Alianz Arena with their current performances. Plus, let’s not forget how Harry Kane can take on the Red Devils.

LASK vs. Liverpool

A feast for the Austrian side, but two on loan Slavs will go into action – Maksym Talovjerov and Moses Usor. Especially the first mentioned one is getting attention from bigger European teams, a good game against Liverpool can make scouts confident.

Atalanta vs. Rakow

Last year’s opponent, Slavia, is in the group for the first time and will face a team that has made a name for itself in Europe with its offensive football. Now it is no longer an offensive machine, instead Rakow is hyped for the group after a successful qualification. They both have a chance to qualify.

Brighton vs. AEK Athens

Brighton have the easiest possible opponent to kick off the group of death. Against the Greeks at home, only one thing can stop the upstart Seagulls, the shaky legs from their European debut. However, the squad has been replenished in the summer with players who have already played cups.

Slovan Bratislava vs. Klaksvík

Last year Slovan reached the quarterfinals of the Conference League, and this year they’ll open it against the minnows from the Faroe Islands. Klaksvík won fans all over Europe by knocking out Ferencváros and Hacken, but the Slovaks will not have it easy.
