What to look out for

Perfect sides go for qualification
Bayern and Real Madrid boasting perfect records after three rounds of games and will take a step closer to reaching next year's final at Wembley if they are victorious on Matchday 4 and seal their progression to the round of 16. These giants are certainly continuing to prove that they are the best of the best on the biggest stage as they battle for the ultimate prize.

Højlund returns to Copenhagen
After featuring against his old team at Old Trafford, Manchester United forward Rasmus Højlund will return to where it all began when his side travel to Copenhagen for a big game in Group A. Højlund came through the academy in the Danish capital, breaking through in the senior team with five goals in the 2021/22 UEFA Europa Conference League (including qualifying) before moving to Sturm Graz.

Højlund was denied the chance to face his brother Oscar during the game in Manchester after being substituted five minutes before his sibling was brought on. They could get another opportunity to take each other on in Denmark, but there will be no time for sentimentality, with both sides in big need of a win as they look to hunt down group leaders Bayern and Galatasaray.
