IT'S a big night on the football front with the start of the Champions League groups the highlight.
There are eight games followed by another eight and first up at 5.55pm are Dynamo Kiev vs Juventus and Zenit St Petersburg vs Brugge.
Later on games include PSG vs Man United and Chelsea vs Sevilla while it will be interesting to see how Ferencvaros fare in Barcelona and understand the quality of Bundesliga leaders RB Leipzig who tackle Istanbul at home.
I've posted a preview focusing on the Man United and Chelsea games and will add to this in the morning. Check out my preview here.
English midweek games are notoriously tough to call but I've picked out a treble that includes Aberdeen to beat Hamilton north of the border.
The Dons are building a good squad and have been fairly consistent this season. Derek McInnes will have last season's top scorer Sam Cosgrove returning to the bench after injury and that's another boost. They should be too strong for an Accies side that conceded five at home to St Johnstone at the weekend. Most team usually go a couple of seasons before conceding that many to a low-scoring side so there are clearly problems at the back for Brian Rice.
Cheltenham started the season well before a surprise defeat at home to Grimsby. They bounced back by beating Southend and face a Scunthorpe side that five defeats in six – three of them heavy ones. At the weekend they lost 5-0 at home to Cambridge and before that went down 4-1 at home to Forest Green.
I'd like to have done a both to score treble but couldn't find many standout games but the one game in the National League should produce. Wealdstone's last two matches have been 4-3 and 2-5 while both to score has landed in five of visitors Stockport's previous six.

Plenty to look at and my Champions League treble is reasoned on my preview.
Well done to any winners on Monday including Macca with his 0-0 at West Brom – I was let down by Leeds not scoring for a double.
