Barça return to Champions League action

Four and a half months after being eliminated by Inter at the semi final stage FC Barcelona return to Champions League action when Panathinaikos visit Camp Nou on Tuesday.

The best 32 teams on the continent play the first group games of the 2010/11 season and the Blaugrana take on Greek opposition as they look to bounce back from league defeat at the weekend. Eight groups of four clubs all vie for a place in the next round and then on to the final at Wembley on May 28.

Group outing

The Catalan side are seen as clear favourites to win the group and progress but they will be keen to prove that on the pitch from the start. As the team with the best coefficient rating Barça will have the weight of expectation on their shoulders as usual, but they are accustomed to coming good when the heat is on.

Semi reverse

The Italian outfit went on to meet Bayern Munich in the final in the Santiago Bernabéu and lifted the trophy after a 2-0 triumph.
