The first part of matchday 2 has come and gone, and now the action continues today. Two more Bundesliga teams will be in action tonight, coming off of disappointing results over the weekend: Borussia Dortmund is in Prague, Czech Republic, where it will play underdog Slavia Praha. Both opening matches in Dortmund’s group ended in draws, so the four teams remain square with a point each.

The marquee match of Group F will be Barcelona and Inter Milan. Inter is at the top of the table in Serie A, while Barcelona is fourth in La Liga, behind Real, Granada (!), and Atletico Madrid.

Meanwhile in Group Red Bull Leizpig hosts Lyon. Leipzig won its opening match against Benfica and is expected to dispatch Lyon. That would give the Red Bulls a solid 6 points at the top of their group. Zenit and Benfica play to round out the group.

Group H also presents some interesting matches today: Chelsea

Valencia hosts group leader Ajax Amsterdam in what could be an entertaining match. Meanwhile, Chelsea hopes to save itself from the embarrassment of an early elimination by traveling to Lille, where Renato Sanches may enjoy some action.

Enjoy watching!
