UEFA Champions League: Tuesday's Previews

Manchester's big two would have hoped to have picked up a European victory by now, but City and United are still searching for their first success of the campaign heading into Matchday Three. The other game in a fiercely-competitive Group A will see Napoli attempt to end Bayern Munich's perfect start and become the first side to find the target against the German giants in over 18 hours of football. Basel and Benfica have picked up four points apiece from their opening two games and will be looking to edge a step closer to the knockout stage when they go head-to-head in Switzerland. CSKA Moscow and Trabzonspor are set to brave freezing conditions in Tuesday's early kick-off. Their Group B rivals Lille and Inter Milan will meet a little later in the evening, with Joe Cole hoping to help his French employers to victory over his former Chelsea boss Claudio Ranieri. Real Madrid and Lyon will need no introduction to one another as they prepare to lock horns for the third season in a row - and the fifth time in seven seasons - at Santiago Bernabeu.
