(AP) -- Few teams can be as happy as Real Madrid and Liverpool that the Champions League is finally starting.

For defending champion Madrid, it's a chance for some respite after back-to-back losses in the Spanish league that have led to fans jeering the team.

For Liverpool, it's a return - after five years away - to a competition the club has won five times and regards as its natural habitat.
