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

Tottenham would expect to build on an opening day win with another when heading to Apoel Nicosia. Fellow Premier League sides Manchester City and Liverpool would also hope for three point returns - a first for the Reds - when they take on Shakhtar Donetsk and Spartak Moscow, respectively.

Having got off to losing starts Napoli and Feyenoord meet knowing a win is crucial to keeping alive their hopes of remaining in the competition - at least remaining in European competition in the Europa League as a worst case scenario.

A potentially key game, for both, in Germany will see Borussia Dortmund left in trouble if they suffer a second defeat when playing host to holders Real Madrid - currently top of Group H ahead of Spurs on goal difference.

Wednesday will give Celtic - thrashed in their opening game - a chance to get back on track when heading to Belgium to face Anderlecht.

Chelsea, who recently agreed a deal with Atletico Madrid for the Spanish club to re-sign Diego Costa, could strengthen their position with a victory in Madrid - the same applies to Manchester United should they win in Moscow against CSKA.

Last season's beaten finalist, Juventus, were soundly beaten by Barcelona - who go to Portugal to face Sporting Lisbon - but would be expected to overcome the challenge from Olympiakos in Turin.


Tuesday 26th September
Apoel Nicosia v Tottenham Hotspur 19:45
Besiktas v RB Leipzig 19:45
Borussia Dortmund v Real Madrid 19:45
Manchester City v Shakhtar Donetsk 19:45
Monaco v FC Porto 19:45
Napoli v Feyenoord 19:45
Sevilla v Maribor 19:45
Spartak Moscow v Liverpool 19:45

Wednesday 27th September
Qarabag FK v Roma 17:00
Anderlecht v Celtic 19:45
Atletico Madrid v Chelsea 19:45
Basel v Benfica 19:45
CSKA Moscow v Manchester United 19:45
Juventus v Olympiakos FC 19:45
Paris Saint-Germain v Bayern Munich 19:45
Sporting Lisbon v Barcelona 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.
