Group-by-group preview

Hello, good evening and welcome to live coverage of the opening night of the 2023-24 Champions League proper. The holders Manchester City are in action, as are the teams ranked 4th, 9th, 13th, 14th and 16th in the Uefa club coefficients list.

The team ranked 79th, Newcastle, are involved in one of the most interesting games of the night. They are away to AC Milan in one of two early kick-offs; you can follow that with minute-by-minute genius Scott Murray. If you don’t want to know the score, why are you reading a Champions League clockwatch?

Newcastle are in a dog of a group, with PSG meeting Dortmund to come. They play each other tonight in Paris. The other British team in action is Celtic: winners in 1967, now trying to reach the knockout stage for the first time since 2007, when they lost a tight tie against the eventual winners AC Milan.

These are tonight’s matches, all 8pm BST kick-offs unless stated.
