ANDERLECHT

Belgium, founded in 1908

RSC Anderlecht will be looking to upstage their more-fancied rivals in the UEFA Champions League this season. The club from the west of Brussels is a veritable insitution in Belgium and the country's most successful club having won no less than five European trophies.

SL BENFICA

Portugal, founded in 1904

NEMANJA MATIC
Eusebio playing for Benfica,
Champions League winners in 1962.
This is the first time that Paris Saint-Germain and Benfica will clash in the Champions League. But the two sides have already crossed paths on the continent: in the last-16 of the UEFA Cup in 2006-07 (2-1, 1-3), and then in the Europa League in 2010-11 (2-1, 1-1). Both times it was the Portuguese side that came out on top. Paris will be looking for revenge.

OLYMPIAKOS

Greece, founded in 1925

With former players such as Yaya Touré, Rivaldo and Zahovic, and an honours list featuring 40 national championships and 26 Greek Cups, the only thing missing from this mythical club's trophy cabinet is a European crown. The Red and Whites also boast a number of former Ligue 1 players in their ranks such as Abdoun, Pantelic, Contreras, Medjani, Machado and Saviola.

Karembeu playing for Olympiacos
Paris have never played Olympiacos, not even in a friendly match, so this will be uncharted territory for both sides.
