There's a football match this weekend. You might have heard about it. To mark the occasion, this week's Football Fives Podcast is all about the UEFA Champions League. Because, you know, it's kind of a big deal. Not big enough to persuade Daniel Storey to show up, but one can't have everything in this world.

Dan's absence leaves David Hartrick, Ryan Keaney and Chris Nee to pick up the pieces and tackle five questions about European football's flagship club competition. We talk about how much of this season's tournament we've watched, and examine the reasons why we have and haven't been into it. And we explore BT Sport's role in the Champions League's apparently dented popularity.

There's a question about whether five English clubs is a good or bad thing for our enjoyment of next season's Champions League, a theoretical fight between the Group Stage and a straight knockout tournament, and a whistlestop tour of our favourite matches of the Champions League era. Go on, get stuck in. You know you want to.
