The group stage of this year’s Champions League kicks off today with Man United and Chelsea in action from England. United will face Basel at home while Chelsea hosts Qarabag.

Both games should be relatively gentle returns to the Champions League for two of England’s largest clubs. City, Liverpool, and Spurs will start their campaigns tomorrow.
