European football's biggest competition returns tonight to plasma TVs and laptop screens everywhere

Continental nights are upon us once more as the UEFA Champions League returns to our living rooms tonight. Depending on the location, packed stadiums will welcome Europe's elite as they battle it out for the ultimate football prize. Last year's winners Chelsea host Russian side Zenit St Petersburg at what is sure to be a raucous Stamford Bridge. Crisis stricken Barcelona face a baptism of fire when they play 2020 Champions Bayern Munich at the Camp Nou. Juventus have made a slow start to the season under the returning hero Massimiliano Allegri and will hope to kickstart their season with a win away at Malmo. Before all of that, Cristiano Ronaldo graces the Champions League stage once again as his Manchester United team visit Young Boys in Bern.

After a thrilling summer of international football at Euro 2020 and a fantastic start to this season's Premier League campaign including the returns of Ronaldo and Romelu Lukaku, business is about to pick up in a big way as everyone's favourite competition restarts with a bang. European football's biggest clubs and most high profile players are ready to give everything to capture the most prestigious trophy in the sport, and you can watch it all on TV or online via live stream.
