The 2012-13 UEFA Champions League Group stage features eight groups of four teams. Within each pool, teams play each other home-and-away in a round-robin format, with games extending through Dec. 5. Once pool play is complete, two teams from each pool will advance to the round of 16 beginning on Feb. 12, 2013.
Pool play began on Sept. 18, and resumes Tuesday and Wednesday (Oct. 2-3). Let's take a look at which players will light up the scoreboard in their respective matches this week.
