Tuchel still trying to find his best Dortmund XI ahead of Legia opener

After a one-year absence, Borussia Dortmund returns to Europe's most illustrious competition in club football on Wednesday.

Their first UEFA Champions League match takes them to Warsaw, where the Black and Yellows will go up against Legia, who are the reigning Polish champions and cup winners.

For coach Thomas Tuchel, meanwhile, it will be the first time he will get to hear the tunes of George Frederic Handel's "Zadok the Priest," rewritten by Tony Britten.

"There is no special tension," Tuchel said...

Thomas Vermaelen, Juan Jesus fail to fire in Giallorossi debuts

AS Roma appeared to have had the opening leg of their Champions League playoff match against Porto by the scruff of the neck following Felipe's 21st-minute own goal on Wednesday, before promptly melting down in front of the Dragoes exciting-but-flaky attack.

Andre Silva levelled the score for the hosts just after the hour following Emerson Palmieri's handball, and Roma could count themselves very lucky that the Portuguese club's finishing was as poor as it was after Thomas Vermaelen's red card left...

Be'er Sheva a big Champions League hurdle for Brendan Rodgers' Celtic

Hapoel Be'er Sheva players celebrate their Champions League third qualifying round win over Olympiakos.

1. Forty years of waiting

The club from the desert of Negev had to wait 40 years before winning the championship title in May.

Their previous triumph was in 1976 and, since then, the team have been through some very hard times. Be'er Sheva may only lie 100 kilometers south of Tel Aviv, but that is a lot by Israeli standards, and the city...

Bayern Munich's historic 1974 win over Atletico began their dominant era

1974 European Cup Final
In 1974, Bayern Munich and Atletico Madrid participated in the only European Cup final to ever be forced into a replay.

In the early hours of May 15, 1974, a 16-year-old lad climbed aboard a coach in Vilshofen, a Bavarian town 110 miles northeast of Munich. He was tired and bleary-eyed but excited.

The coach was about to take him and his friends to Brussels, where they would watch the European Cup final between Bayern Munich and Atletico Madrid. The boy was sure he would never again see a game as big as this one, so he didn't mind the long hours on the autobahn.

Of course he had no way of knowing that the match he...

Arsenal can't beat Barcelona? Not so fast -- here's their blueprint to victory

The ESPN FC panel share their thoughts on how Arsenal can limit Barcelona's chances and make the most of theirs on Tuesday.

It has been a long time since Barcelona lost a game. When Lionel Messi & Co. travel to the Emirates on Tuesday to face off against Arsenal, the Gunners are going to have to do something that 32 previous Barcelona opponents have failed to do, win, if they are to have any hope of advancing.

How exactly can Arsenal accomplish that? After they are done praying long and hard to the soccer gods, Arsene Wenger's men will have to figure out a game plan that is tailored to the unique challenges that Barcelona...

Alvaro Morata's pace will be key to Juventus' game-plan against Manchester City.

Having already beaten the English side 2-1 in the first leg, Juve are now looking to top the group by defeating Manuel Pellegrini's men again but it won't be easy.

When Juventus travelled to Manchester, most assumed the Old Lady would fail. Not only had she lost frequently in the...
