DStv and GOtv subscribers are in for a treat of the world’s best football this week as the 2020-21 UEFA Champions League returns to the screens from tomorrow Tuesday 27th and Wednesday 28th October 2020.
According to MultiChoice Kenya Corporate Communications Manager Philip Wahome, SuperSport viewers on DStv and GOtv can look forward to another exciting UEFA Champions League Matchday.
“SuperSport is undoubtedly the #HomeOfFootball and the ultimate destination for lovers of ‘The Beautiful Game’ and we are committed to making great entertainment more accessible to our DStv, GOtv and Showmax viewers,” she added.
Tuesday 27th October features champions Bayern Munich in action in the early kick-off slot as they head to Russia to face Lokomotiv Moscow, while English heavyweights Manchester City and Liverpool will back themselves to claim wins over Olympique Marseille and Midtjylland respectively.
Reds manager Jurgen Klopp has warned his side against underestimating their Danish opponents: “Midtjylland is for different reasons…one of the most interesting teams because they have quite a specific way [of playing]. They try to play real football, all the teams run a lot, so the games will be intense.”
Yet the pick of matches on Tuesday evening will come from Bergamo in Italy, where Atalanta and Ajax – two teams renowned for their stylish, attacking play – will meet at the Gewiss Stadium.
“Atalanta were the revelation of the Champions League of last season,” said Ajax boss Erik ten Hag of La Dea. “They are a pressing machine. We have gained experience against these kinds of opponents, but they are one of the very best.”
Wednesday 28th October is headlined by the meeting of Juventus and Barcelona (in a repeat of the Champions League final from 2015) at the Allianz Stadium in Turin – and a revival of the Cristiano Ronaldo vs. Lionel Messi rivalry not seen since the former left Real Madrid just over two years ago.
This will be their first meeting in the group stage of the competition and Messi has generally ended on the winning side against his fellow all-time great: the Argentine’s teams have had the better of their European games against Ronaldo’s teams: W2 D2 L1. Ronaldo is yet to score in five European games against teams featuring Messi, while the Barca player has scored three Champions League goals against Ronaldo’s teams.
Wednesday also features Manchester United at home to RB Leipzig, Paris Saint-Germain away to Turkish champions Istanbul Basaksehir, and Chelsea travelling to the south of Russia for a clash with Krasnodar.
