Three British clubs are in actions tonight in the Champions League, as Manchester United host Braga, Chelsea travel to Shakhtar Donetsk and Celtic play Barcelona.

Playing at Old Trafford, United would appear to have the easiest game/ But manager Alex Ferguson has warned that the Portuguese side have been impressive on their travels so far.

"Braga to my mind are better away from home, they have shown that in their last game winning at Galatasaray, it is not easy going to Turkey as we know, it is always a difficult place to go to and they managed a two goal victory. Counter attack once again rears its head and I feel in the modern European game that counter attack is definitely the issue at home and we saw that in the Galatasaray match. Fortunately we weathered the storm until half time and then in the second half we were much much better, so hopefully tomorrow we can deal with that issue".

Chelsea face Shakhtar off the back of a hugely impressive 4-2 victory away at Tottenham. Spain international Juan Mata was the star of the game, bagging two goals, and declared that the Blues would be going all out for the three points tonight.

"I think we always play to win, we always play to win to get points and tomorrow as well. Now we are go with four points, each team in the group and we have two wins against them, now tomorrow and after that at home. So we want to win six points to be in a good position to qualify and that's our aim for tomorrow."

Celtic manager Neil Lennon insisted his players would not be starstruck when taking on the likes of Messi and Iniesta at the Nou Camp.

"We are not here for a holiday. We are not here for a tourist attraction. We are here to play football. And we are going to be in for very tough 90 minutes but Barcelona will be in for very tough 90 minutes as well."

Elsewhere in Europe Spartak Moscow play Benfica, whilst Lille take on Bayern Munich.
