The second round of the European cups group stage starts on Tuesday. There will be interesting confrontations for football fans. Which matches should you definitely not miss?

Napoli vs. Real Madrid

The Italian champion has not entered the season ideally, there are problems inside the club as well, and Napoli will be stopping the rampant Jude Bellingham. At home, however, the forces are balancing and the battle for the top spot in the table will undoubtedly be interesting.

Atlético Madrid vs. Feyenoord

Feyenoord’s return to the Champions League, as far as away games go, probably couldn’t be more enjoyable. Atlético Madrid’s tactical master Diego Simeone will field a relaxed squad from Netherlands, while Atleti, on the other hand, lost the lead in the set-up in Rome and must win at home.

Newcastle vs. PSG

While the Magpies went to the San Siro in terrible form, they now have progression over the Citizens in the Carabao Cup and an 8-0 win over Sheffield United on their backs. Paris don’t have much motivation in the league, Newcastle will be the first proper challenge away from Princes Park. Newcastle’s defence is older in age, Kylian Mbappé will be the toughest test.

Freiburg vs. West Ham

West Ham started the Premier League season well, but then came two losses to Liverpool and City. The Hammers returned to winning ways at the weekend and now fly to Germany. Freiburg have been on the up in recent seasons, with top spot in Germany up for grabs.

Marseille vs. Brighton

Brighton put themselves under pressure when they fell at home to AEK Athens at the start of the group of death. It won’t be easy in France, but the Seagulls’ strength and progression comes from good results against the favourites. It was a crap game against the Greeks, now it has to be for a point at least.

Aston Villa vs. Zrinjski Mostar

The unexpected results of the first round gave the match a special edge. Villans fell to Legia Warsaw rather surprisingly, but that cannot be compared to the story of Mostar. The Bosnian side was trailing 0: 3 at half-time to Alkmaar, but incredibly turned it around to 4: 3 after the change of sides.

Spartak Trnava vs. Fenerbahce Istanbul

Home opener for Trnava, who mainly want to enjoy the Conference League. They took a beating from Ghent, now they play at home and the Turks can underestimate the underdogs. Star names will come to Slovakia, but they won’t get free points.
