Eden Hazard made his comeback from a hamstring problem recently but is now expected to miss two months of football with an ankle problem. The Belgian skipper is having the campaign to forget so far with poor fitness record. Rodrygo and James Rodriguez are not part of the matchday squad while Gareth Bale makes a comeback.
Giorgio Chiellini is back for Juventus which adds massive value to their defence. Although the Italian veteran might not start tonight, he is a certain starter in the next rounds. Cristiano Ronaldo can't stop scoring goals at the moment and it will be a real surprise if he fails to find the back of the net against Lyon.
Cristiano Ronaldo, the highest-scoring player ever in the history of Champions League, scored in Juventus’ 2-1 win over SPAL in their previous Serie A match and will be eager to maintain his scoring form, which saw the Portuguese superstar become the first player to score in 10 successive league matches for two different clubs.
Runaway Premier League leaders Liverpool matched Manchester City's EPL record of 18 consecutive victories, set in 2017, on Monday as they beat West Ham 3-2 at Anfield to extend their unbeaten run. Liverpool, on 79 points from 27 matches, have not dropped a point since drawing 1-1 with Manchester United in October last year.
The video was shared by the twitter account of St. Mirren WFC, the team which Jane O’Toole plays for. Late in the game, O’Toole went to the ground after clearing the ball out of bounds. Immediately, he kneecap was visibly out of place but instead of asking for assistance, she just used her fists to bash it in the anatomically correct position and completed the entire game.
Manchester City are in the last 16 of the competition for the seventh straight season but have managed to reach the semi-finals just once in the 2015-16 season where they were knockout out by Real Madrid. The Premier League champions have been slapped with a two-year European ban which makes this campaign even more important.
The Spanish giants were underwhelming in their performance as they dominated the possession stats but just managed two shots on target in the entire game. This game was also the first time that a Barcelona player other than Lionel Messi has scored in the knockout stages on the road for the club since Neymar in 2015.
Juventus currently top the Serie A table with 60 points, just one point ahead of the second-placed club Lazio. The first leg of the last-16 Champions League tie between Juventus and Lyon will be played on February 27. Bonucci who plays as a defender for the club said he is 'very positive' and training is helping them to improve their game.
"In the end it's a draw that is a good result considering that we have another home game," said Barcelona coach Quique Setien, with his side in a strong position ahead of the second leg at the Camp Nou on March 18. The clash was the first between the two teams and also a Champions League debut for both Setien and Napoli counterpart Gennaro Gattuso.
The Premier League side's chances, meanwhile, were few and far between, although defender Marcos Alonso came close to scoring on a counter-attack in the 43rd minute that Bayern goalkeeper Manuel Neuer did well to clear for a corner. The sense at the start of the second half was that Bayern could not be denied for much longer, and that proved to be the case.
Dries Mertens scored his 121st goal for Napoli, which puts him on top of the all-time goal-scoring charts for the Serie A club alongside former captain Marek Hamsik. The Slovenian captain played for Napoli between 2007 and 2019 and surpassed Diego Maradona’s tally of 115 goals for the club during the 2017-18 season.
Masih Saighani fired Chennaiyin into the lead (17') before two goals in either half by Martin Chaves (43', 71') seemed to have handed all three points for NorthEast United. But a late equaliser from Lallianzuala Chhangte (90+3') ensured the away side took a point.
