Champions League Group Stage Game week 4: Tuesday Night's Fixtures
Oct 31, 2017 Sports 4937 By Sharon Ayomide
- Champions league group stage returns on Tuesday night.
- Athletico Madrid vs Qarabag.
- Manchester United vs Benfica.
After Athletico Madrid's failure to secure a
win against Qarabag in the last round of games, AS Roma will be aiming to claim all three points as they host Chelsea in Italy on Tuesday. Chelsea FC currently sit at the top of Group C with 7 points followed by AS Roma in second place with 5 points.
Manchester United will play host to Benefica at Old Trafford with the knowledge and comfort that they only need a point to qualify for the next round of the Champions League. However, Jose Mourinho has reaffirmed his side's commitment to finishing as group leaders so we can expect United to put up a good show against the Portuguese side who may likely put up a spirited fight.
Athletico Madrid will face the weakest link in Group C Qarabag again but this time in Spain. Supporters and pundits were shocked by the result from the first tie but Athletico are likely to get a better result and a decent scoreline on home turf this time around.
Other fixtures for Tuesday night include Barcelona away at Olympiakos, Celtic hosting Bayern Munich and PSG vs Anderlecht.
