This week's Champions League will see the first of the double-headers that may define many of this year's groups. As I spoke about when I predicted all the likely qualifiers, the order of fixtures will, as always, play a major role in who gets through to the next round.

The contrasting fortunes of the two teams this year is really quite intriguing, with both having experienced similar summer exoduses but with completely differing results.
With this in mind, we go through everything you need to know ahead of this crunch tie.
