The UEFA Champions League group stage kicks off on Tuesday with a trio of high-profile matches, and some favorites to get out of the group stage could find themselves in an early hole as a result.
Barcelona-AC Milan headlines the day's schedule, as Lionel Messi & Co. take on the defending Italian champions in a match that will not feature a link between the two clubs, as former Barcelona and current Milan striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic is out injured.
The clashes between Bundesliga and Premier League clubs in the Borussia Dortmund-Arsenal and Chelsea-Bayer Leverkusen matches also command attention, though, as the two London-based teams face strong German opposition to kick off their UCL campaigns.
