Vital Preview - Champions League - 12th-13th September 2017

The 2017-18 season gets underway with the first round of Champions League games this midweek, which will see us among those involved in this schedule with a victory of course the aim.

What will happen in this one? Cast your vote so we know if you think it'll be all smiles or disappointment come the full time whistle.

Runners up last season, Juventus, face the unenviable task of a trip to the Nou Camp to face Barcelona in their opening game - a repeat of the final a few years back.

Multi-time winners Bayern Munich start at the Allianz Arena against Anderlecht.

Another side facing a game they would have rather not are Scottish champions Celtic when they take on Paris Saint Germain, which at least comes with Brendan Rodgers' side having home advantage.

Chelsea and Manchester United return to the Champions League with home games. Meanwhile, runners up in two of the last four seasons, Atletico Madrid head to Rome to face Roma.

Wednesday will see the remaining Premier League sides come into the competition. Manchester City travel to Feyenoord and Liverpool - thrashed by City on Saturday - host Sevilla, finally, Tottenham will be at Wembley with Borussia Dortmund faced.

Defending champions Real Madrid, looking for a third straight Champions League triumph, begin with a game against Apoel Nicosia at the Santiago Bernabeu, where they are yet to win so far this season.

Bayern Munich v Anderlecht 19:45

It goes without saying the expectation; most definitely the hope at least, will be for a positive result. But will this happen? We'll find out soon enough.

Ahead of the game we're looking for your views on what way you think it will go, which requires you to vote in the latest poll in one of the options you have been given.

However, don't just look also have a say. We don't just want your vote, which you can do to the right; we also want some thoughts and views ahead of the game as well so share these below.
