  2. Chances of progression – Spurs

    PSV Eindhoven v Tottenham (17:55 BST)

    Simon Gleave, head of sports analysis, Gracenote: “Tottenham Hotspur were the pre-tournament second favourites to progress from Group B with Euro Club Index top-ranked Barcelona.

    “Two defeats in their opening two matches have now made it most likely for Spurs to continue their European campaign after Christmas in the Europa League though.

    “Tottenham’s chance of finishing in the top two of Group B has now reduced to 20% according to the Euro Club Index, making them the least likely English team to progress to the last 16.

    “Spurs now play two matches against PSV, the weakest team in the group, and will probably need to take all six points from them to have any genuine hope of progress to the Champions League’s last 16.”

    Club Brugge v Monaco (17:55 BST)

    We will have updates on Monaco’s game at Club Brugge, which kicks off at 17:55 BST – the same time as our feature presentation.

    You’ve got just about enough time to get the ice cream and overpriced popcorn in.

    Salty for me. Ta.

  6. ‘Win or bust’

    They’re the Dutch champions (PSV) and are flying in the league at home, but they haven’t won in their last 10 Champions League matches.

    It should be an entertaining game. Like Tottenham, it’s win or bust for them tonight.

  7. More breaking-ish news: Man Utd charged

    Manchester United have been charged after fans invaded the pitch during and after Tuesday’s 1-0 Champions League defeat by Juventus.

    A succession of pitch invaders attempted to reach Juventus forward Cristiano Ronaldo during the match and after the final whistle.

    Ronaldo, who was returning to United for the second time since leaving 2009, took a selfie with one of them.

    It is the second time United have been charged by Uefa this season.

    They were fined 15,000 euros (£13,203) for the late kick-off of their match with Valencia at Old Trafford last month.

    Uefa’s disciplinary body will hear the latest case on 22 November.

  8. Europa League breaking-ish team news: Hazard out!!

    Chelsea forward Eden Hazard will miss Thursday’s Europa League Group L home game with Belarusian champions BATE Borisov because of a back injury.

    He is expected to return for Sunday’s Premier League game at Burnley.

    “Hazard is out for sure,” said manager Maurizio Sarri. “He has a back problem. We are trying to solve the problem for Sunday.”

    It’s great that he’ll be fit by Sunday though.

  11. Monaco’s Henry: ‘The Champions League is a dream’*

    As very strongly alluded to in the previous social post, occasional knee-toucher Thierry Henry will be taking charge of his first Champions League match when his Monaco side take to the pitch at Club Brugge for the 17:55 BST kick off.

    Henry was appointed as coach last week with his side third from bottom in Ligue 1 – they are now second from bottom after the 2-1 defeat by Strasbourg. Not a great start to life as a manager.

    Here’s what TH had to say about the forthcoming match:

    “The Champions League is a dream. You want to play in it, you want to be part of it and it might just be what we need to give us back some confidence.”

    *Hope it doesn’t turn out to be a nightmare for him.

    Image caption: What Harry Kane might picture when he hears the Champions League anthem

    *Cue 17:55 BST Champions League music*

    Whatever time of day it’s played – even if it’s 7 in the morning on a Sunday in January – it still raises the spirits… although, as far as Spurs fans are concerned, it has had little impact on their side so far this season.

    They are pointless after two games in Group B and really need to get the show on the road away at Dutch side PSV Eindhoven.

    That match is live right here and on BBC Radio 5 live.

    Liverpool then trot out for the anthem before their match against flat-white drinking hipster’s favourite Red Star Belgrade at 20:00 BST.

    Those comms are also on BBC Radio 5 live.
