The UEFA Champions League is returning for the world to enjoy from next week onwards, and it will feature a few matches that will be categorized as nothing less than mouth-watering.

One of the fixtures that stand out is Juventus taking on Manchester United twice in the group stages.

Not only will this mark the return of Cristiano Ronaldo to Old Trafford to face a club that is still in his heart, but also Paul Pogba heading back to Turin, a city that made him the player that he is today.

The latter has been busy with the French side for the past week or so, as he was a part of the team that beat Netherlands in the UEFA Nations League.
