A stunning home record in the Champions League is on the line for Juventus on matchday two, with the Serie A giants facing Young Boys without Cristiano Ronaldo.

The former Real Madrid superstar is serving a suspension for the visit of the Swiss side after he was controversially sent off two weeks ago in an away win against Valencia.

Another of Ronaldo's former clubs, Manchester United, will seek to put poor domestic form behind them in its contest with Valencia, while Premier League rival Manchester City is seeking to bounce back from defeat to Lyon when it travels to Hoffenheim.

German giant Bayern Munich is among the other top sides in Champions League action on Tuesday and here, we assess the eight ties with the use of Opta numbers.
