There are no plasters left

The Champions League and Europa League return, with Jimbo, James Horncastle, Alvaro Romeo and Julien Laurens on hand to preview Matchday 1.

Barcelona host Bayern, with Barca now bigger underdogs than they were when they lost 8-2 in 2020. 

Real Madrid travel to San Siro to face Inter. Under Ancelotti, the team are exciting with Vinicius no longer fictitious.

It’s Liverpool v Milan at Anfield, where we should all be thankful that Zlatan is back in the Champions League. Similarly we take time to purr over Messi’s hat-trick against Bolivia.

Domestically, we show some love to Sampaoili’s Marseille. And in Serie A, is it too early to proclaim Mourinho’s Roma as title challengers? Or to write Allegri’s Juve out of the title race?
