Chelsea vs Barcelona Live & Exclusive on Ten Sports

15th October: Ten Sports coverage of the UEFA Champions League continues on Tuesday with action from the top games.


The action gets under way with Manchester United playing host to Copenhagen at Old Trafford on Tuesday night. The top versus bottom clash may look to be a formality for United on paper but if they go into the match with any complacency they could well be in for a big shock.


The Danish side may only have picked up one point from their two matches so far but both have been tight affairs and they are certainly capable of causing an upset.


United, with a 100% record to date, will be looking for a third straight victory which would virtually secure qualification to the next round and almost certainly spell the end of Copenhagen’s aspirations of reaching the knock out stages.


Following straight after will be delayed coverage of CSKA Moscow’s match against Arsenal. The Russian side are just two points behind their visitors at the top of the table and they know a victory would move them above Arsenal at the half way stage of the group matches.


The Londoners will be concerned with having several players struggling with injuries and may well consider a draw a good result in Moscow.


Wednesday night sees one of the most anticipated matches of the group stages when Chelsea host Barcelona. The two sides have come up against each other in both of the previous two seasons with honours being shared. Being a group match the outcome is not vital but Chelsea knows a victory over the current Champions League holders would mean the Spaniards could find it tricky to qualify.


Ten Sports analyst John Burridge believes the English Champions should just edge the contest: “At home I think Chelsea should be too strong but I think Jose should resist bringing Ballack back as it may take away the balance of the side.”


Wednesday’s delayed match sees Bordeaux entertain Liverpool in their Group C fixture with the French outfit desperate for the victory after only picking up one point to date.


Liverpool will be concerned of their lack of form away from home and know that a defeat could cause problems with qualification in such a tight group.
