Basel will hope home advantage can rescue a point or 3 for them when PSG visit. The Group A minnows are with only 1 point after 3 games, and they still have a chance to qualify, but that will depend on the result they get against the joint group leader.
Arsenal visit Bulgaria to face Ludogorets, and they would hope to wrap things up as prospective group toppers at the end of the group fixtures by getting as much goals as possible on the road.
Group B’s bottom 2 Benfica, and Dynamo Kiev will face off at Portugal, and a win for the host will get them closer to a chance of proceeding to the next rounds. That will signify the end of the road for the Ukrainian visitors though.
Besiktas host table toppers Napoli, and the Turkish team will hope to get a win again having won at Italy a fortnight ago to close the gap on them to just a point. Definitely a potential cracker of a game.
Barcelona pay the Etihad a visit, and how City will respond after their embarrassing first leg defeat interests man. The result will definitely determine who tops group C at the end of the day.
Monchengladbach host Celtic, knowing that a win against thside will move them closer to the round of 16. The result of the other game will definitely have a say on that.
Group D has Atletico Madrid welcoming FC Rostov to the Vicente Calderon, while PSV play host to Bayern Munich. A win for Diego Simeone side automatically sees them advance to the next rounds, while Munich will also have to win on the road if they are to have any chance of emerging top of the group.
Tomorrow, Group E leaders Monaco, welcome bottom of the table side CSKA Moscow to France, and only a draw can keep the Russian visitors in this season’s competition.
Tottenham play Bayer Leverkusen at Wembley, and they would hope the jinx that has seen English sides struggle to pick up wins at the national stadium gets broken tonight.
Borussia Dortmund play Portuguese giants Sporting Lisbon at the Signal Iduna Park. The race to lead Group F is jointly led by the Germans and Real Madrid at the moment, and only a win for both teams will keep their aspirations alive. The La Liga giants visit Legia Warsaw, and would hope for a repeat of the performance last timeout against the Poles to boost their table leading chances.
In Group G, FC Copenhagen play host to Leicester on Wednesday, and the Danes will have to win to keep their progression chances alive. On the other hand, a victory for the EPL defending champs will guarantee them their first ever spot in a Champions League round of 16.
FC Porto also need a win against Club Brugge to get assured of their qualifications chances.
Juventus and Sevilla are both tied on 7 points, and they host Lyon and Dinamo Zagreb respectively. Whoever wins their battles have a chance to emerge Group H leaders at the end of this round. Who will it be?
