GROUP G PREVIEW (18:00 BST KICK-OFFS UNLESS STATED)

Europa League holders Sevilla could only draw with HNK Rijeka last time out but remain top of Group G. This group looks rather tough on paper, certainly compared to some of the others, and the Liga side have a tricky trip to Standard Liege to contend with tonight.

CELTIC v ASTRA GIURGIU

I don’t know what an Astra Giurgiu is, but I sure hope I don’t ever catch it. The Romanians are playing in the group stage of a European competition for the very first time this season and have lost their first two games. Group leaders Celtic should have enough to win, right?

TOTTENHAM v ASTERAS TRIPOLIS

I’m reliably informed that Asteras Tripolis is not an international space station and is in fact a football club. Who knew? As a matter of fact, they’re actually top of Group C and could cause Tottenham some real problems later on. We shall see.

LILLE v EVERTON

Pre-match violence has reared its ugly head in Europe again. Two Everton fans suffered minor facial injuries after being attacked by around 50 locals in a bar last night, while the club have advised travelling supporters to stay away from Lille city centre after they were hit by police with tear gas.

TOP OF MATCHDAY THREE

Looking back at Tuesday's action, this one goes to Luiz Adriano. The Shakhtar Donetsk striker scored five goals in his side's 7-0 hammering of BATE Borisov, equalling the record set by Lionel Messi. Honourable mention to Ludogorets for an historic win this evening.

FLOP OF MATCHDAY THREE

It has to be Mario Balotelli. The Italian swapped shirts with Pepe as he walked off for half-time and was substituted by Brendan Rodgers at the break. Rodgers said after the game that he didn't know about the incident when it happened and will "deal with it internally". Gulp.

MONACO 0-0 BENFICA - SUMMARY

Ben Cullimore reports: “Somehow, the game has ended goalless, and the two sides leave with a point each. Neither can have too many complaints, however, as both impressed from start to finish, and either one of them could have picked up all three points.”

GALATASARAY 0-4 DORTMUND - SUMMARY

Martin Macdonald reports: “Dortmund continue their excellent European form with a comprehensive 4-0 victory over sorry Galatasaray at the Turk Telekom Arena. A strike from Adrian Ramos, a double from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and a sensational goal from Marco Reus send Jurgen Klopp and his men home happy.”

LIVERPOOL 0-3 REAL MADRID - ANCELOTTI REACTION

Carlo Ancelotti to Canal +: "I had in mind the change of Ronaldo. We had many counterattacks, many sprints, so the last fifteen minutes I preferred to substitute him to avoid problems... Real Madrid and Barcelona are two teams in fine form. I am fortunate to not pay a ticket to see it. It will be a show."
