Champions League action which resumed last week continues this week. The remaining four games will be played on Tuesday and Wednesday.
On Tuesday, Liverpool will host Bayern Munich while Lyon entertains Barcelona. On Wednesday, Manchester City travel to Germany to take on Schalke 04 while Atletico Madrid and Juventus will slug it out.
Being the first of a two-legged affair, all teams involved will be looking to gain the advantage needed going into the second leg. Last week, the UCL results featured a mixture of home advantage and teams taking advantage of the away goal rule.
Manchester United and Ajax failed to make the most of the home advantage unlike AS Roma and Tottenham. Both the English side and the Dutch side now face an uphill climb in the second leg of their tie.

Anfield has been a fortress for Liverpool in the Premier League. Virgil Van Dijk has been immense for the Reds this season. But in cup games, teams have visited and scored goals. And Van Dijk is suspended for this game. For Bayern, they’ve scored in all but one of their away games this season.
Six of Liverpool’s last eight games have seen both teams score.

Atletico Madrid versus Juventus is a game between two sides with highly rated defences. Atletico Madrid has let in goals in only two of their last eight home games played. Juventus has only lost three times in their last 20 away games in all competitions.
Cristiano Ronaldo will want to help Juventus to a UCL trophy for the first time in such a long time.
Which of these two sides will come out on top in this first leg encounter?

Schalke welcomes the most prolific English side in Manchester City. Pep’s men are scoring goals for fun, something that will be of great concern to Schalke fans and players. City look set to score a lot of away goals. Schalke’s three wins in their last seven games only underscore the obvious.
Lyon may not be favorites to win the UCL. But having taken four points from Manchester City this season, it’s safe to say they know what they’re doing. Barcelona is a different kind of opposition. And the Catalan giants have enjoyed playing against the French outfit in recent times.
Barcelona has won four of those six meetings.
And every time they won a game, they scored at least three goals.
Can Barcelona score over 2,5 goals against Lyon this week?
