English pair Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur will both attempt to overturn one-goal deficits in their home-legs against Borussia Dortmund and AC Milan, whilst there are a couple of other European ties for our PR man to get his teeth sunk into.
Chelsea were boosted by a much-needed 1-0 Premier League success over Leeds United at the weekend, and will hope to back that up against German giants Dortmund in a huge encounter at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday – 24 hours ahead of Milan’s trip to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Like Chelsea, Spurs are 1-0 down from the first-leg in Italy, and with boss Antonio Conte back on the touchline after a period of recovery following an operation, they will hope to register the triumph they need to keep their European hopes intact.
There’s also the small matter of a meeting between two genuine Champions League heavyweights in Munich, as FC Bayern play host to a PSG side that includes World Cup winner Lionel Messi and French superstar Kylian Mbappe.
The Bundesliga side hold a narrow one-goal advantage heading into the clash, but PSG will be confident of turning the tie around and securing themselves a last eight spot at the expense of the six-time winners.
Elsewhere, Scott Parker’s Club Brugge have it all to do in their second leg against Benfica, as the former Fulham and Bournemouth boss takes his side to Portugal needing to win the game by three clear goals to stun the Primeira Liga leaders on their own patch.
