The UEFA Champions League season gets underway with a mega clash as PSG welcome Juventus to the Parc des Princes on Tuesday.

The UCL title continues to elude the French champions, losing 1-0 to Bayern Munich in the final in 2020.

Juventus have won the European Cup on 2 occasions in their history, although they are considered the eternal bridesmaids having lost in 7 other finals.

PSG are at the top of Ligue 1, picking up 16 points from their first 6 games, level with Marseille.

Juventus on the other hand are in 6th place despite remaining unbeaten after 5 games.
