Champions League predictions: Borussia Dortmund outgun PSG in tie of the week, while the Liverpool machine keeps on rolling against Atletico Madrid

A look ahead to the action in Europe on Tuesday and Wednesday

The Champions League is back with a bang this week with a couple of blockbuster battles to start the action.

On Tuesday, reigning champions Liverpool travel to the Spanish capital and take on Atletico Madrid at the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium.

Jurgen Klopp's side currently lead the Premier League table by a whopping 25 points after their win 1-0 at Norwich City on Saturday and could clinch their first domestic title for 30 years as early as next month.

Atletico, managed by Diego Simeone, are fourth in La Liga after their 2-2 draw with Valencia but are not troubling Real Madrid and Barcelona in the title race and are in danger of missing out on a Champions League place next season.

Also on Tuesday, in one of the ties of the round, Bundesliga title hopefuls Borussia Dortmund take on French champions Paris Saint-Germain at Signal Iduna Park.

All eyes will be on Dortmund's teen sensation Erling Braut Haaland who has hit the ground running since moving to Germany, scoring nine goals in six games. Former Dortmund manager Thomas Tuchel will be in charge of PSG.

The following day sees Serie A side Atalanta play host to Spain's Valencia, while Tottenham Hotspur face German outfit RB Leipzig in London.
