It’s day no. 2 of the 2018-19 UEFA Champions League group stage.

[ LIVE: Champions League scores

While Tuesday offered up the delectable treat that was Liverpool hosting Paris Saint-Germain, Wednesday is headlined by a fixture that’s nearly as impressive on name recognition alone: last season’s winners (the last three, to be correct), Real Madrid, host Roma, semifinalists a season ago, at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Elsewhere, Premier League sides Manchester City and Manchester United enter the fray, while Cristiano Ronaldo begins the quest for which he was brought to Juventus: to bring the Champions League back to Turin.

Here’s the full schedule for Wednesday’s late games, with all six encounters kicking off at 3 p.m. ET.
