The 2023/24 Champions League campaign is set to kick off officially this week, with a string of mouthwatering clashes scheduled to be played.

Manchester City, who are the reigning champions, are set to begin their title defence against Serbian giants, FK Crvena Zvezda.

90min reports that City are in Group G of the tournament alongside Bundesliga side RB Leipzig and Swiss giants Young Boys.

Manchester United and Arsenal are the other Premier League teams set to be involved this week on the continental stage.

United will be playing Bayern Munich in their Group A opener on Wednesday, September 20, while the Gunners will be hosting Dutch side PSV at the Emirates to mark their return to the Champions League after a long hiatus.

Sports Brief takes a look at the top five Champions League betting tips this week:

Man City vs Crvena zvezda

City will be keen to make a statement on Tuesday, September 19, when they host the Serbian side for their Group G opener.

The match comes at a time when the Premier League giants are enjoying a fine run of results domestically, as they are yet to drop points so far.

Crvena, meanwhile, have equally been in fantastic shape, having lost only once so far this season.

Betting tip: Man City to win

AC Milan v Newcastle United

After years of absence, Newcastle are set to make a return to Europe this season.

Sky Sports reports the Magpies sealed a Champions League spot after they finished fourth last season in the Premier League.

However, they have endured their fair share of struggles this season, losing three of their five opening games of the campaign.

On their part, Milan will be heading into the tie off a 5-1 humiliation at the hands of rivals Inter.

Betting tip: Draw

Lazio v Atletico Madrid

Lazio are scheduled to host the Spanish giants at Olimpico on Tuesday night.

The match comes at a time when the Italian side are enduring a poor run of form, with their latest outing ending in a 3-1 defeat at Juventus.

Betting tip: Atletico to win

Bayern Munich vs Man United

Given their troubled run of form and results, hardly anyone can back Man United to return home with anything from this tie.

United have won just two of their first five opening matches of the season, suffering back-t0-back defeats against Arsenal and Brighton.

Betting tip: Bayern to win

Arsenal v PSV

The Gunners will be keen to leave a mark in their UCL opener as they make a return to the tournament after years of absence.

The north Londoners have been in fine form so far, picking 13 points from a possible 15 in the Premier League.

Betting tip: Arsenal to win
