The UEFA Champions League is back this week on CBS All Access and they do not come much bigger than Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain’s first leg meeting or RB Leipzig’s clash with Liverpool.

Unfortunately, the concentrated nature of the seasons across Europe mean that many of these matches will be missing talented individuals with the dual absences of Neymar and Angel Di Maria at Camp Nou two examples.

Barca are also missing the likes of Philippe Coutinho, Remontada hero Sergi Roberto and Ronald Araujo, but there will still be plenty of talent on display in Catalonia this midweek.
