Club Brugge created few decent chances in the first leg and are a threat on the counter. They will need to be at their very best to make it to the next round. Eric Bailly is likely to start ahead of Victor Lindelof in partnering skipper Harry Maguire at the heart of the defence. Bruno Fernandes should start given the importance of the game.
Defeat to Barca would see them fall four points behind their title rivals and open the very real prospect of ending the season without a major trophy for the second consecutive year, reports Xinhua news agency.
Ever since his confrontations with Barcelona club technical director Eric Abidal, the 32-year-old has been linked with a move away from the Catalans. And Maradona was asked if Messi, who is approaching the twilight of his career, could improve a team like Napoli in the same he (Maradona) did when he made a shock transfer from Barcelona to Napoli in 1984.
Both Ronaldo and Messi are approaching their twilight years in football and although they remain the best among all, that streak will not last forever and both will have to bid goodbye to football sometime in their career. Both the players also failed to inspire their side to away wins in the 1st leg of their respective 2019-20 Champions League round of 16 encounters.
Arteta, who took over Arsenal in December last year, has lost only once in the 12 matches that he has overseen that include wins over Manchester United and Everton. Arsenal beast Everton 3-2 last week with Aubameyang scoring twice and Bukayo Saka continuing to impress. Young striker Eddie Nketiah also found the net in the win against Everton and will hope for another start.
Anthony Martial’s strike helped Man United return home with not only a draw but also the lucky advantage of an away goal. They were indeed lucky that Club Brugge – after going ahead as early as the 15th minute – failed to make most of their chances. The return of Mason Greenwood, who missed the 1st leg due to illness will give the home some attacking boost.
Despite a defeat against Manchester City, Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane backed his players and even went on to say that they did not deserve to lose.
The record Italian champions dominated the possession statistics but could not create something of worth in the final third of the pitch. Lyon struck just after the half-hour mark as Lucas Toussart opened the scoring and now the French side will be hoping to hold on to this first-leg advantage as they look to cause one of the biggest upsets of the season.
Kevin De Bruyne orchestrated a dramatic Manchester City comeback on Wednesday as they stunned Real Madrid 2-1 at the Santiago Bernabeu to put one foot in the Champions League quarter-finals.
Cristiano Ronaldo drew a blank as a Lucas Tousart goal handed Lyon a surprise 1-0 win over Juventus in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 tie in France on Wednesday.
