The Champions League is back this week, and with it is the latest episode of adidas’ exellent Gamedayplus web series.
For the uninitiated, Gamedayplus accompanies each new round of Champions League fixtures, with the aim of getting you closer to the players, teams and cities competing in Europe’s premier club cup competition.
This week on adidas Football Gamedayplus take us on a tour of FC Schalke 04’s Valtins-Arena and sat down with Atsuto Uchida ahead of the must-win game against Chelsea FC.
Bastian Schweinsteiger also returns after his dead-ball masterclass last time out, and adidas stars Diego Costa, Filipe Luís and Andreas Christensen take us pitchside at Chelsea’s Cobham training ground.
Uchida speaks about his attacking playing style and his relationship with compatriot, friend and rival Shinji Kagawa. In this week’s exclusive competition viewers can win a signed FC Schalke 04 shirt signed by Atsuto Uchida.
Bastian Schweinsteiger puts his Champions League knowledge to the test, with questions about his debut match in Europe, his performance in that game and Bayern’s goals in the tournament last season.
Chelsea’s Diego Costa, Filipe Luis and Andreas Christensen put their skills to the test with the Corner Challenge, and for us boot nerds get to catch up with category manager Aubrey Dolan to introduce the brand new Hunt Pack football boots.
