UEFA Champions League: Wednesday's Previews

Arsenal go in search of their first win in this season's UEFA Champions League group stages when they host Olympiakos, while Chelsea face what on paper looks like a difficult match in Valencia. Arsenal's group rivals, Marseille and defending Bundesliga champions Dortmund, meet in France, with Didier Deschamps' home side grateful for the chance to ignore domestic form which has taken just one win in eight matches. Barcelona began the defence of their European crown with a 2-2 draw against old rivals AC Milan and Pep Guardiola's men will now expect to collect their first three points in Group H when they travel to BATE Borisov. Following their draw at Camp Nou, Massimiliano Allegri's Italian champions, Milan, host Czech minnows Viktoria Plzen at the San Siro.
