Two of Europe’s biggest clubs meet in Rome on Tuesday night to mark the start of the Champions League, with Lazio welcoming Borussia Dortmund to the Stadio Olimpico at 8pm.
The Italian side return to Europe’s premier knockout tournament after a 12-year absence having finished fourth in Serie A last season. Simone Inzaghi sat back and watched his younger brother, Filippo, win this competition twice as a player, and he will be hoping to have a similar impact at managerial level.
Dortmund reached the round of 16 last term and were leading eventual finalists PSG in the first leg, but an emphatic turnaround from the French club sealed BVB’s fate in the return leg. They will now be hoping to end a run of three defeats on the road in this competition.
These two sides have met previously in the 1994/95 UEFA Cup quarter-final, with Dortmund progressing after two legs, but can Lucien Favre take inspiration from Ottmar Hitzfeld’s side all those years ago? Or will Lazio mark their return with a crucial opening win?

Ciro Immobile is expected to return for Lazio after missing the weekend defeat to Sampdoria due to a Serie A suspension. However, Inzaghi is likely to be without quartet Senad Lulic, Andreas Pereira, Silvio Proto and Stefan Radu.
For Favre, Lukasz Piszczek picked up an injury and had to be withdrawn in the first half against Hoffenheim last time out.. The experienced defender joins Marcel Schmelzer, Nico Schulz, Dan-Axel Zagadou and Thorgan Hazard on the sidelines.
