The UEFA Champions League League Is Back. Check Out Three Exciting Fixtures From UCL Matchday 3.

There are no dull matches in the Champions League and especially not after the international break. It’s matchday 3 and clubs will be looking to consolidate their spots in their respective groups.
This matchday promises to be exciting as teams will want to get vital wins to aid qualification to the knockout stages. Let’s briefly check out three exciting matches from this week’s Champions League.

Atletico Madrid v Liverpool

The biggest match to look forward to on matchday 3 is this match. The last meeting between the two Group B heavyweights offers enough reason to look forward to this match. Atletico Madrid are only two points behind group B leaders, Liverpool. Atletico Madrid need a win today because if they lose to Liverpool, their second position will come under huge threat.

Liverpool have been playing some fantastic football of late. In this match, we will see if Mohamed Salah and his teammates can penetrate Atletico Madrid.

Tip: Liverpool have only beaten Atletico Madrid once in the Champions League. Atletico have won three times against Liverpool.

Ajax vs Dortmund

The two sides are known for their attacking prowess. Dortmund have scored over 25 goals this season while Ajax have scored more than 35. On paper, Ajax are the favorites, but Dortmund have a squad that can beat any team in the world. Dortmund might find it a little hard to score against Ajax as they’ve only conceded 3 times this season.

This fixture has never ended in a draw (in the UCL), Both teams have beaten each other twice.

The match promises to be free-flowing, explosive, and exciting.

Manchester United v Atalanta

Manchester United will hope to put their Premier League worries behind them on Wednesday when they face Atalanta. The Reds can react to last weekend’s 4-2 loss against Leicester on Wednesday with a win. Manchester United have lost one won once so far in the UCL this season.

It will be interesting to see how they approach the home game against Atalanta. Any slip-up against Atalanta tomorrow could prove disastrous for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side.
