UEFA Champions League 2013: Bayern Munich faces Manchester City in Wednesday's main course

Alexander Hassenstein

While the likes of Juventus, Manchester United and Real Madrid will be in action, most eyes will be focused on England where Bayern Munich faces Manchester City.

Real Sociedad have struggled badly so far this season both in La Liga and in the Champions League. They'll face a tough trip to face Bayer Leverkusen while fellow Group A members Shakhtar Donetsk hosts Manchester United in the Ukraine. Juventus will be looking to improve after a draw against FC Copenhagen as they host Galatasaray. Real Madrid will once again be without mega summer signing Gareth Bale who is struggling with a leg injury.

The undisputed heavyweight match of the day will occur in England as defending champions Bayern Munich travel to the Ethiad Stadium to face Manchester City. Given City's inconsistent form so far this season, they'll need to play well to avoid being run out of their own building by the strong German side.
