Matchday 3 of the UEFA Champions League takes place tonight which sees a number of top clashes take place. The likes of Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester City, Real Madrid, Liverpool and Atletico Madrid are all in action tonight, which promises to give us some exciting football.

Here, we take a look at the three things to look out for tonight.

1. City need a win against Brugge at all costs

Manchester City have been in scintillating form in the Premier League, but come into this game in Europe on the back of a 2-0 loss to PSG. This is the first time that the two sides will meet and Pep Guardiola needs to ensure that his side come out on top, considering that they are currently placed third in the Group A table.

2. Ancelotti needs to get his side firing in Europe

Real Madrid come into this game having suffered a shock loss to Sheriff Tiraspol last time out and in Shakhtar they will face an opponent who they have lost their last two consecutive games too.

Carlo Ancelotti is known for his pedigree in Europe, and he will need to show all that experience if his side are to claim all three points on the night.

3. Can Atletico stop Salah

Mohamed Salah has been in brilliant form this season, scoring 10 goals and providing four assists in 10 games across all competitions, of which three have come in the Champions League.

The Egyptians performances have led many to call him the best player in the world at the moment and if Atletico Madrid are to have any chance of winning, they need to keep Salah in check.
