Champions League Match Preview/Fixtures


Group A
Manchester United 7:45 PM Sociedad
In the EPL, United drew their last home match, wandering what tonight gonna be like, at Old Traford again.
Manchester United and Real Sociedad both changed managers in the summer and have been slow starters in their respective 2013/14 campaigns, with United eighth in the Premier League and Sociedad 12th in La Liga. Sociedad are without any points after two losses in Group A, and it is crucial they at least draw at Old Trafford to keep their qualification hopes alive. But the Spaniards come into the match on the back of a 2-1 win at Valencia, and long-serving captain Xabier Prieto is fully-fit again after a thigh injury. The sides have never met before but United have fared badly in recent matches against Spanish opposition. Over the last two seasons they were knocked out of European competition in the Last 16 by Real Madrid and Athletic Bilbao.

David Moyes is starting with Shinji Kagawa and Chicharito both among the starting XI. Here's the line-up in full: De Gea; Rafael, Jones, Evans, Evra; Valencia, Carrick, Giggs, Kagawa; Rooney, Hernandez. Subs: Lindegaard, Buttner, Smalling, Fellaini, Nani, Young, Januzaj

Leverkusen 7:45 PM Shakhtar

Group B Real Madrid 7:45 PM Juventus

Galatasaray 7:45 PM Copenhagen

Group C Anderlecht 7:45 PM PSG

Benfica 7:45 PM Olympiakos
