The Champions League in a flash...

The group stages of the Champions League – 96 matches, 32 teams, 17 different countries and eight groups – kicks off on Tuesday 13 Sepetmber with some potential stunning matches.

Holders Barcelona will meet Serie A champions Milan, while last season's runners-up Manchester United will travel to Portugal to play against Benfica.

Dinamo Zagreb will await the visit of Real Madrid – the most succesful team in the competition. The Spanish giants have lifted the trophy on nine occasions even if their last victory was back in 2002.

They are followed in the roll of honour by seven time winners Milan and Liverpool who have five in their trophy cabinet.

Chelsea v Leverkusen and Dortmund v Arsenal are also tight matches from the first round where it's quite difficult to predict a winner.
