Biggest Champions League matches to watch this week

Liverpool vs Rangers

Two clubs with massive love for Steven Gerrard meet in Group A on Tuesday as Liverpool host Rangers at Anfield.

The Reds put a chastening defeat at Napoli behind them to beat Ajax last time out, while Rangers have two big defeats on their return to the Champions League, conceding seven goals.

Inter vs Barcelona

If you’re thinking you’ve seen Inter vs Barcelona an oddly large amount of times in recent times, you’re right.

The two European giants were also paired in the group stage during the 2018/19 and 2019/20 editions of the competition. Barça won three of those four games and Inter will be looking for some revenge at San Siro.

Chelsea vs AC Milan

Graham Potter kicked off his Chelsea career in the Champions League, being held to a disappointing draw at Stamford Bridge by Salzburg.

Fikayo Tomori may not be able to get a minute for England right now but he will get the opportunity to show the Blues what they missed out on when he returns to his former club.
