ROME -- After bringing in the likes of Gonzalo Higuain, Miralem Pjanic, Dani Alves and Medhi Benatia, the top priority for Juventus is clearly the Champions League. Aaron Dell Jersey .Juventus has finished runner-up four times since it last won the trophy 20 years ago, including to Barcelona in 2015.Everyone says Juve will win everything -- the league, cup and the Champions League. But that hurts us, because we lose perspective, Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri said. Weve got to play the matches and win them on the pitch.Juventus opens its campaign at home against Sevilla on Wednesday in Group H after impressing in its opening three Serie A matches.Higuain transferred from rival Napoli for 90 million euros ($99 million) after scoring 36 goals last season to break a 66-year-old Serie A record. He scored twice in the opening 10 minutes of a 3-1 win over Sassuolo on Saturday.Juventus will definitely be a protagonist until the end, Bayern Munich coach Carlo Ancelotti, a former Juventus coach, told the Gazzetta dello Sport. If you have a player who scores 30 goals per season thats really key -- it gives you fewer uncertainties.Here is a look at Wednesdays other matches:---GROUP ETottenham is back in the Champions League, and Monaco is returning after a one-year absence.Monaco, which reached the Champions League final in 2004, is leading the French league and travels to England unbeaten in four games. The team has been boosted by the return of striker Radamel Falcao, who came back from a five-week injury layoff last weekend.Meanwhile, Harry Kane scored his first goal of the season on Saturday as Tottenham beat Stoke 4-0 in the Premier League.The match will take place at Wembley Stadium because of construction work at White Hart Lane.Also, Bayer Leverkusen warmed up for CSKA Moscows visit with a 3-1 win over Hamburg on Saturday.Mexico striker Javier Chicharito Hernandez will again lead the front line against Moscow, which has lost on all five previous visits to Germany.---GROUP FLooking to become the first team to win back-to-back Champions League titles, defending champion Real Madrid opens its campaign at home against Sporting Lisbon.In the other group match, Borussia Dortmund will take on Legia Warsaw, Polands first Champions League representatives since Widzew Lodz in 1996-97.Legia Warsaws two biggest home losses in Europe came against German opposition. The club has never beaten a German team, losing five of its eight matches.---GROUP GThis is possibly the weakest of all the eight groups at this stage -- despite boasting the presence of the English champions.Leicester is making its debut in the Champions League after its unlikely title triumph in the Premier League last season and is joined in the group by two other inexperienced teams at this level.Club Brugge, Leicesters first opponent on Wednesday, is competing in the group stage for the first time in 11 years while FC Copenhagen has only gotten this far three times before.It leaves Champions League regular FC Porto -- a two-time European champion -- as comfortably the most experienced team in the group.Porto and Copenhagen both had to go through qualifying. Copenhagen won six matches to make it this far, while Porto overcame Italian side Roma in the playoff round with a 4-1 aggregate win.Leicester was the story of European soccer last season but the encore is proving tough. The team has won only one of the first four games and heads to Belgium on the back of a 4-1 loss at Liverpool.---GROUP HComing off a 3-1 loss in the French league that exposed its defensive frailties, Lyon will host Dinamo Zagreb.The seven-time French champions may have to play without striker Alexandre Lacazette because of a left leg injury. The France internationals absence is a problem for Lyon coach Bruno Genesio, who does not have proper cover on the bench.Dinamo has its own worries. The Croatian clubs unbeaten run of 103 league matches at home, dating back to 2010, ended over the weekend against Osijek. Martin Jones Jersey . There are surprises among the Vezina candidates, but most of the others are standard top-tier performers, even if the two Hart Trophy runners-ups have never been quite as good as they have been through the first half of the season. Cheap Sharks Jerseys Authentic . -- Charlie Graham stopped 67 shots as the Belleville Bulls edged the visiting Guelph Storm 6-5 on Saturday in Ontario Hockey League action. http://www.wholesalesharksjerseys.com/?tag=cheap-brent-burns-jersey . The Vancouver coach and an announced sellout crowd of 18,910 watched in dismay as the Canucks lost 7-4 to the New York Islanders on Monday night by squandering a 3-0 lead in the third period.CHICAGO -- It began with a convincing victory for the Blackhawks. Then Jimmy Howard and the Red Wings controlled the action for three straight games, pushing the NHLs top-seeded team to the brink of elimination. Then there was the response from Chicago, which found its offence in time to take two in a row and grab at least one more home date. Back and forth. Back and forth. So much rock and roll, and now The Rolling Stones will be the opening act for the dramatic conclusion. The Blackhawks are set to host the Red Wings in Game 7 on Wednesday, a night after the Stones play the United Center. "Were excited about the game," Chicago defenceman Duncan Keith said. "We know it is going to be the toughest game of the series and theyre going to be excited as well. Were going to have to play our best game of the year, best game of the series." Taking down the stage after Mick Jaggers last strut of the night and preparing the ice for thhe game will be a massive undertaking, but the Blackhawks arent worried about the surface. Joel Ward Jersey. After all, at one point they were a long shot to even get to this point. After Chicago opened the series with a 4-1 win, Detroit turned up the pressure and Howard made 86 saves in 88 opportunities during a brilliant stretch that pushed the Red Wings to a commanding 3-1 edge. The Blackhawks regained the momentum with another 4-1 victory in Game 5, and then stayed alive with a 4-3 win in Detroit on Monday night. Now the Red Wings get one day to regroup for their second Game 7 on the road this post-season. "I mean youve got to feel better about yourself coming off of two wins, but at the same time were keeping our feet on the ground, the same way we did when we were down 3-1 in the series," Chicago captain Jonathan Toews said. "We know that its just one game at a time and you cant worry about too many things at once."
