As we know that the UEFA Champions League group stage started on September 12 and 32 teams are involved in taking part in a six rounds fixture which concludes on 6 December 2017.

There are many fascinating matches across the eight groups, where finalists of 2015 Barcelona and Juventus face each other in group D, while Bayern and PSG face each other in group B. Group H is quite interesting as defending champions Real Madrid have to overcome Borrusia Dortmund and Tottenham.
