Big games feature on Matchday Live

Arsenal FC v Borussia Dortmund and Real Madrid CF v Juventus are the two main games on Matchday Live this week and Rob Daly previews the audio show.

UEFA.com's Matchday Live panel show is back for matchday three of the UEFA Champions League with the best build-up, interviews, live coverage and post-match analysis. Leave us your comments below or tweet the show directly @championsleague, using #matchdaylive.

On Tuesday we bring you full match commentary of Arsenal FC against last season's runners-up Borussia Dortmund in Group F. The Gunners are playing excellent football, sitting top of the English Premier League, and we hear from Arsène Wenger before kick-off.

AC Milan at home to FC Barcelona is our other star-studded featured game that night. We have been speaking to Sulley Muntari about last term's dramatic round of 16 tie between the sides. The Milan midfielder, who scored in that 4-2 aggregate defeat, tells Matchday Live why the Rossoneri will not make the same mistakes again in Group H on Tuesday.

Hasan Salihamidžić

When I interviewed Hasan Salihamidžić recently he said a meeting of two of his former teams, FC Bayern Munchen and Juventus, would be his ideal UEFA Champions League final. However the Turin club have their work cut out after drawing their first two fixtures. Their Group B trip to Real Madrid CF is Wednesday's main commentary and we will talk to Carlo Ancelotti in the lead-up – with the current Madrid coach reminiscing about his time with the Bianconeri.

Meanwhile, Sami Hyypiä will be telling us the strengths of his Bayer 04 Leverkusen side who welcome Group A rivals FC Shakhtar Donetsk to Germany. Steve Wyeth will deliver updates from our second featured game on Wednesday.

We also have interviews with Kevin-Prince Boateng, Edinson Cavani and Hulk ahead of the action, so tune in via the UEFA.com MatchCentre from 19.30CET on Tuesday and Wednesday. European football experts Chris Parrott (Tuesday) and Paul Saffer (Wednesday) will be joining me.
