Champions League Matchday One will offer clues to what's ahead

Monday September 16th, 2013
David Moyes made his only appearance in the Champions League in 2005 -- and that was in qualifying.

"We can't play open football against these huge teams but we would like to match them tactically and I hope we can surprise them too. Obviously, we all know that Manchester City and Bayern are clubs with different possibilities to ours. I know we are seen as the club which should finish bottom but I believe we can earn some points and I would be happy if we can continue in European competition after the winter break." Plzen is unlikely to finish in the top two, but it might just give City a headache on Tuesday night.
