Real Madrid vs. Union Berlin: There's a Reason Why Los Blancos Are Called the Undisputed Kings of Europe.
Real Madrid, whose name is steeped in European pedigree, will be out to give out a reminder of its credentials in this season's UEFA Champions League voyage.
Los Blancos couldn't retain their trophy in last season's Champions League as a 5-1 aggregate loss in the semi-finals to current defending champions Manchester City foiled their plans.
However, they still maintain the status of the most decorated club in this competition, with 14 trophies bagged and four for Carlo Ancelotti in his managerial career.
Union Berlin made it into the group stages of the UEFA Champions League via a fourth-place finish in the previous Bundesliga season. This is their first Champions League appearance in club history.
Berlin's maiden voyage in Europe's elite competition sees them pitted against 2022 champions Real Madrid. Though that's the least of their problems, in Group C, their prospects of making it to the knockout stages appear slim given their group contains elite names such as Napoli, Braga and their opponents in this impending encounter.
Los Blancos are way above their opponents in this impending encounter when it comes to quality and class. Despite this being their first meeting, we still anticipate the Spaniards to come out on top with a convincing win, thus picking them up in the handicap of -1.5 to win by a two-goal difference.

Bayern Munich vs. Manchester United: The Bavarian Giants to Run Rampant Against the English Side
Bayern Munich's journey to the Champions League was a straightforward one. Six-time champions of this edition gained entry to the group stages via a first-place finish in last season's Bundesliga.
This was their tenth consecutive first-place finish, where they have been replenishing their decade-long dominance in the league. In the 2023–24 Bundesliga campaign, they have started off on a positive note to be one of the four sides yet to suffer defeat, claiming second place in the standings with ten points.
The Bavarian giants, who have now acquired the services of Harry Kane from Tottenham Hotspur, who has just been phenomenal with four goals from four matches, will be seeking to unleash their dominance in Group A, where they stand as favorites to top the group, which comprises Galatasaray, Copenhagen, and Manchester United.
Manchester United, on the other hand, had an easy task in booking their place in the group stages of the Champions League by guaranteeing themselves a third-place finish in last season's Premier League.
With only one season away from the elite competition, the Red Devils will be hoping to make it all the way to the knockout stages to rectify their misstep, which saw them being eliminated by Atletico Madrid (aggregate 2:1) in the round of 16 on the 15th of March last season.
In the Premier League, it seems as if Erik ten Hag and his charges will once again be playing catch-up this season as a 13th place in the standings sees their bid for a first-place finish hindered by a seven-point deficit. The Red Devils last won the league title in 2017—or any major trophy for that matter.
The Bavarian Giants enter this one as strong favorites at home to secure their first three points in the Champions League opener. They have won six of their last nine matches against Manchester United, and we anticipate the same trend to continue in this one.

Arsenal vs. PSV: The Gunners Are Not Intimidated by the Dutch Side Same goes for PSV Eindhoven.
After a six-year absence from Europe's elite competition, the Gunners finally got the big break they were looking for by finishing runners-up in last season's Premier League.
In the Premier League, Mikel Arteta's charges have kicked off the campaign on a positive note; however, it seems they'll be playing catch-up once again as a fourth-place position in the standings with 13 points sees them two points behind first place.
Despite in recent years being a constant fixture in Europe's elite competition, the Gunners have yet to brace their trophy cabinet with the prestigious silverware. However, they did come close to achieving such a feat, reaching the finals once in the 2005–06 campaign, where they lost 2-1 to Barcelona.
For the first time in five years, the Philips Stadion will be braced with the bright lights of Europe's elite competition.
PSV Eindhoven's route wasn't quite as easy as gaining automatic qualification into the group stages. The Lightbulbs had to scrape their way through preliminary rounds, where they were a class above their opponents, winning three and going unbeaten in four matches.
The Lightbulbs have won the European championship once, and that was in the millennium era in 1988. This time around, with tough competition on the horizon, they will be hoping to add to their trophy cabinet a second with the help of a reformed and rejuvenated young squad.
Both sides enter this encounter in exceptional form in their respective domestic league duties, and this is surely to turn out to be an entertaining affair where goals will be at a premium. Despite the total exceeding 2.5 goals in just one of their last eight matches, we still anticipate this to be a high-scoring affair with both sides getting on the scoreboard.
