The race to win the ultimate prize in European club football is once again underway following the start of the 2023/24 Uefa Champions League group stage.
The opening night of the 2023/24 Uefa Champions League group stage offered up no shortage of elite performances, with holders Man City, Paris and Barcelona among the most notable winners.
There was the usual dose of unmatched late drama, too, as Lazio goalkeeper Ivan Provedel scored an added-time equaliser against Atlético de Madrid.

Lazio keeper Provedel headed a last-gasp equaliser to ensure Lazio's return to Champions League action ended with a dramatic draw.
The hosts dominated possession but were frequently thwarted by Jan Oblak in the visitors' goal.
Indeed Atleti took the lead against the run of play when 20-year-old Pablo Barrios's low shot deflected past Provedel.
However, the keeper had the final say when he went up for an added-time corner and glanced in Luis Alberto's delivery.
