AmaZulu finished second last season but are looking for their first win of the new campaign against a SuperSport United side who have shown early signs of being potential frontrunners.

M1 AmaZulu vs Supersport United: AmaZulu will be off to Malawi at the weekend of the second leg of their African Champions League tie so are squeezing in this game. They have lost three of four games this season. SuperSport were 3-1 winners over Golden Arrows in their last game.

M2 Sevilla vs FC Salzburg: While Sevilla are making their fifth Champions League group appearance in seven seasons, Salzburg are in this stage for the third successive campaign and will be aiming to reach the knockout rounds for the first time.

M3 Young Boys Berne vs Manchester United: Young Boys have already played six games in the 2021/22 Champions League, winning all three at home and scoring three goals in each game. Man Utd are making their 24th appearance in the Champions League group stage, an English record,

M4 AFC Bournemouth vs Queens Park Rangers: Bournemouth got back to winning ways with a 3-0 victory at home over Barnsley at the weekend. QPR are unbeaten after their opening six matches this season and among the Championship frontrunners.

M5 Dinamo Kiev vs Benfica: The teams were paired in the 2016/17 group stage, Benfica winning 2-0 in Kyiv ana 1-0 in Lisbon. Those six points helped the Eagles finish second to Napoli in Group B on eight points with Dynamo eliminated in fourth place on five.

M6 Barcelona vs Bayern Munich: Bayern put eight goals past Barça when the teams were drawn together in the 2020 quarter-finals in Lisbon, the first time they had scored eight in a Champions League match and the first time their Spanish opponents had conceded eight in a competitive game since 1946.

M7 Lille vs VfL Wolfsburg: The French champions are aiming to improve on their 2019/20 campaign when they picked up a single point from their six fixtures. They have progressed to the knockout stages only once in six previous attempts, while Wolfsburg got as far as the quarter-finals in the 2015/16 campaign.

M8 Malmo vs Juventus: Malmö return to the Champions League group stage for the first time since 2015. Juve's only previous games against a Swedish club came in the 2004/05 Champions League third qualifying round, a 6-3 aggregate success against Djurgården.

M9 Reading vs Peterborough: Reading have collected only one point from their past four Championship fixtures. Peterboro have lost three in a row, including six in Saturday’s defeat at Sheffield United.

M10 Villarreal vs Atalanta: Villarreal have drawn all three LaLiga games this season. Atalanta have four points after three Serie A games this season. They went down 2-1 at home to Fiorentina on Saturday.

Suggested permutation: 

R8.00 3 x 1 x 3 x 1 x 1 x 2,3 x 2,3 x 3 x 1 x 1
