Champions League football returns for matchday three this week, and first up are groups A to D on Tuesday night.
The likes of Real Madrid, Manchester City, Paris Saint-Germain, Tottenham Hotspur, Bayern Munich and Juventus are all in action and all in varying states as we approach the halfway stages of the 2019-20 groups.
Here, Sports Mole provides score predictions for all eight of Tuesday night's matches.
Atletico Madrid vs. Bayer Leverkusen (Tuesday, 5.55pm)
Diego Simeone's side are currently second in the section on four points, while Leverkusen are fourth having lost both of their group matches to Lokomotiv Moscow and Juventus.
We say: Atletico Madrid 1-0 Bayer Leverkusen
Neither team has been full of goals in recent weeks, and we are not expecting a hugely entertaining affair at the Wanda Metropolitano on Tuesday night. Atletico are so strong on home soil, though, and we fancy Simeone's side to put another three points on the board in Group D.
Shakhtar Donetsk vs. Dinamo Zagreb (Tuesday, 5.55pm)
Both sides have made identical starts in Group B, with each side beating Atalanta and losing to Manchester City, but the Croatian champions sit above their Ukrainian opponents on goal difference.
We say: Shakhtar Donetsk 2-1 Dinamo Zagreb
The stage is set for a high-quality game packed with attacking football on Tuesday night but home advantage and greater experience at this level should help Shakhtar secure a second win in this year's group stage.
Club Brugge vs. PSG (Tuesday, 8pm)
Club Brugge will be hoping for a repeat of their first-half Bernabeu heroics on Tuesday night when they welcome another European heavyweight Paris Saint-Germain to the Jan Breydelstadion.
The Belgian runners-up led 2-0 at the break against 13-time Champions League winners Real Madrid last month and, while the Spanish giants were ultimately able to hit back, Brugge still picked up a point which leaves them second to only PSG in Group A.
We say: Brugge 0-2 PSG
Brugge have an exceptional defensive record domestically and were impressive against Real Madrid last time out, but the threat of PSG - particularly with Cavani and Mbappe back - is likely to prove too much for them. We are backing the French champions to continue their 100% start.
Galatasaray vs. Real Madrid (Tuesday, 8pm)
Fresh from their first defeat of the 2019-20 campaign, Real Madrid will travel to Galatasaray in the group stages of the Champions League on Tuesday night.
We say: Galatasaray 1-2 Real Madrid
Both teams will enter Tuesday's match confident of picking up a positive result. It would not be a surprise to see a draw in Istanbul, but we just fancy Madrid to have enough to record an important three points.
Juventus vs. Lokomotiv Moscow (Tuesday, 8pm)
Juventus will be looking for their seventh straight win in all competitions when they welcome Russian outfit Lokomotiv Moscow to Turin in the Champions League on Tuesday night.
The Italian champions are currently top of Group D with four points from their two matches, while Lokomotiv are third with three points to show from their two European fixtures this term.
We say: Juventus 2-0 Lokomotiv Moscow
Juve are the strong favourites to move onto seven points in Group D on Tuesday night, and we fully expect the Italian champions to overcome Lokomotiv in Turin despite the Russian side's talent.
Manchester City vs. Atalanta (Tuesday, 8pm)
Manchester City and Atalanta BC will lock horns for the first time in European competition on Tuesday night as the Premier League champions welcome the Italian side to the Etihad Stadium.
Pep Guardiola's side are sitting comfortably at the top of Group C with six points from an available six, while Atalanta are bottom having lost their first two Champions League matches to Dinamo Zagreb and Shakhtar Donetsk.
We say: Manchester City 2-0 Atalanta
Zapata's potential absence for Atalanta would be a major blow to the away side, and we are finding it difficult to predict anything other than a routine home victory on Tuesday night.
Olympiacos vs. Bayern Munich (Tuesday, 8pm)
Olympiacos welcome Bayern Munich to Greece on Tuesday night looking for their first win in this year's Champions League group stage.
The Greek side are currently third in Group B with just one point from their opening two matches, while Niko Kovac's Bayern are sitting pretty in first with six points in the bag and 10 goals already scored in this competition.
We say: Olympiacos 0-3 Bayern Munich
Although Bayern have stuttered a bit in the league recently, Olympiacos' collapse against Red Star suggests that the German champions should record a fairly routine win on Tuesday evening.
Tottenham vs. Red Star Belgrade (Tuesday, 8pm)
Tottenham Hotspur have the chance to banish the memories of their matchday two horror-show when they welcome Red Star Belgrade to North London on Tuesday night.
Mauricio Pochettino's side, runners-up in the Champions League last term, have taken just one point from their opening two games in Group B and know that anything other than victory in this one would leave them facing an uphill struggle to make the knockout rounds.
We say: Tottenham 2-0 Red Star Belgrade
It is getting to the stage where it feels as though it is generous to carry on predicting Tottenham wins. The hosts should come out on top in this one - they have superior quality and home advantage against a team with a woeful record on the road in Europe. However, with Spurs in their current form you can never truly tell, and it would not be the greatest surprise if Red Star manage to come away from North London with something.
