Read on for all the information you need to get behind this top tip.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic netted 10 goals for the Parisiens in the Champions League last term and after a summer spent strengthening an already impressive squad, we are backing PSG to maintain the kind of European form that has seen them lose just two of their last nine away games in Europe.
A 4-0 last-16 triumph over Leverkusen at the BayArena was one of the highlights of last season’s campaign and with Ajax suffering defeat in two of their last three Eredivisie games, their French visitors look set to add to the misery in Amsterdam.
Newcomers Athletic Club have already shown their European credentials by dumping a star-studded Napoli side out of the competition in the qualifying stage and they are fully expected to see off Ukrainian giants Shakhtar, who have rarely travelled well in Europe.
The Donetsk outfit have lost four of their last six games played away from home in the Champions League and have failed to score in three of their last four on the road in the competition. It all points to a morale-boosting home win for Basques.
Back in the competition after a five-year absence, the Lisbon giants have been handed a relatively straightforward opener against a Maribor team that has done well to get this far in the competition, having progressed past a wasteful Celtic team in the previous round.
Sporting have made an unbeaten start to the season in Portugal, picking up a commendable 1-1 draw with champions and 2013 Europa League finalists Benfica along the way. They should have enough to see off Maribor, who have lost two of their last four league games in Slovenia.
The whipping boys of their group last season, CSKA shipped 17 goals in six Champions League outings last term and could be in for another torrid couple of months with Roma the first of three big sides set to entertain the Russians.
Currently on a run of four straight defeats on the road in the competition, the Muscovites could struggle against a Roma team that boasts a 100 per cent record in Serie A and will know that progress could hinge on picking up three points here.
