Manchester City and Real Madrid should steal most of the spotlight from everyone else on Tuesday.

Like it or not, Group D will feature the best match of the day on all six of their UEFA Champions League group stage match days. The scheduling gods have been kind to us and put Real Madrid and Manchester City against each other in the first and last rounds of group play, much like last year's AC Milan - Barcelona fixtures.

There's good viewing elsewhere around Champions League on Tuesday, as some newcomers look to prove their worth. Montpellier and Malaga both have tough home matches, with the French champions hosting Arsenal and the once oil-rich Spaniards facing off against Zenit St. Petersburg. In Group A, FC Porto might need all three points away to Dinamo Zagreb to keep pace with Paris Saint-Germain and Dynamo Kiev, the latter of which might struggle away to the Parc des Princes.

Schedule (all games at 2:45 p.m. ET)

Dinamo Zagreb vs. FC Porto
Paris Saint-Germain vs. Dynamo Kiev
Montpellier vs. Arsenal
Olympiakos vs. Schalke 04
AC Milan vs. Anderlecht
Malaga vs. Zenit St. Petersburg
Borussia Dortmund vs. Ajax
Real Madrid vs. Manchester City
