Today's matches in the Champions League
Inter Milan-Real Madrid (9:00 p.m. – Movistar Champions League)
Real Madrid arrive with Benzema and Vinicius in a state of grace to face an Inter that has made an important change compared to the team they faced last season. Neither Conte, now replaced by Inzaghi, nor Lukaku, who emerged as the team's great star, continues. That role is now fully owned by Lautaro Martínez. The Argentine is now the spearhead and the greatest danger for the white defense. Carletto, who returns to San Siro, is expected to reserve Modric and give the middle to Valverde and Asensio.
Atlético de Madrid-Porto (9:00 p.m. – Movistar Champions League 1)
Party with many pending issues in the Metropolitan. The Champions League fans are back after that agonizing victory against Liverpool and they will do so with an important appointment on the pitch and in the stands. The respectable is expected to 'value' the return of Griezmann, who seems to not be from the game. On the green, Pepe, a former Madrid player, and João Félix, a former Benfica player, will play their particular derbies in a match that aims to be among the best of the day.
Bruges-Paris Saint-Germain (9:00 p.m. – Movistar Champions League 4)
The 2019 runner-up will take the spotlight for many reasons. It is no longer that it is an afternoon to see Mbappé and Neymar, it is that, on top of that, they will play alongside Messi. The Argentine will play in Europe for the first time with a shirt different from that of Barcelona and will do so together with these two phenomena and against a Bruges who will live, as a rival, a historic meeting. Will he have to pay for the party or will he be able to embitter it?
Liverpool-Milan (21:00 – Movistar Champions League 3)
A European classic that reissues the end of a little less than 20 years ago. Liverpool come in a relatively sweet transition to return to the top after winning the Champions League and Premier League. Recovering Van Dijk is the best news to re-cement the reds. Milan returns to the top club competition with a group that mixes youth with the veteran of which remains its star years and years later, Zlatan Ibrahimovic. The Swede will not be due to discomfort in the Achilles tendon. The youngest will have to replace the great striker.
