Heineken Star Player is a real-time game that allows players to predict the outcome of various incidents during live Champions League games and by playing along with Pies next week, you could stand to win a really rather fantabulous prize.

There are also trivia questions that will offer points during lulls in play, achievement badges to collect and various ‘power-ups’ to maximise your score all of which you will be explained on the Star Player site once you sign up.
