Champions League 2nd round matches
Posted 29. september 2015
Barcelona's shaky defence, José Mourinho's return to Porto, Iker Casillas's record, Astana's bow and Dinamo Zagreb's 45-game run - these are the top topics to watch out for.
The European champions have shipped four goals in three of their nine games this season; they have kept just two clean sheets and have conceded 17 in total – a figure they did not reach until 28 January last term. José Mourinho made his name at the Estádio do Dragão and returns there with a Chelsea side who have won their last eight meetings with Portuguese opposition. Casillas is now set to reach 152 UEFA Champions League outings, a milestone which will take him past Xavi Hernández and create a new competition record. Wednesday will mark the first ever UEFA Champions League group stage match to be held in Kazakhstan. Dinamo Zagreb have not lost in 45 games in all competitions, a sequence dating back to 27 November last year and a 1-0 reverse to Astra Giurgiu in the UEFA Europa League group stage. Pretty awesome stuff :)
