How to watch Champions League on TV
Every Champions League match will be shown exclusively on BT Sport across their range of available channels.
Manchester United will try to exact revenge on Turkish champions Basaksehir after going down 2-1 in what has so far been the biggest upset in the competition. Ole Solskjaers’ men are known to putting shocking displays behind them and raising their game when required, and we expect the same this time round.
Chelsea will look to register a double over their French counterparts after an impressive 3-0 in London at the start of November. The blues have improved dramatically defensively and have three consecutive clean sheets following a goalless stalemate against Seville and then crushing Russian side Krasnodar 4-0.
Manchester City face Olympiacos in a match were few surprises are expected, with Pep Guardiola’s tipped to claim maximum points and secure a berth to the next round. After a few underwhelming runs in the Champions League, the Citizens have their eyes firmly on the prize for this 2020/21 campaign, and Guardiola’s troops have already asserted their superiority over Group C with three successive wins over Porto, Marseille and their next opponents Olympiacos.
Fresh from administering Atalanta’s heaviest home defeat in European competition, Liverpool welcome last season’s surprise package at Anfield, with all eyes on the last 16. With the certain absentees of defensive trio Virgil Van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Trent Alexander-Arnold and with captain Jordan Henderson and Mohamed Salah in doubt, Jurgen Klopp will be aware things might go so smoothly this time round.
With the four Bundesliga teams still lively in the competition, Bavarian giants Bayern Munich will be hoping to extend their dominant run in Group A as they host Austrian champions RB Salzburg. It has been straightforward for the defending champions with three wins out of three, and with no doubt they will go into this game in confident mood to claim victory and book a place in the next phase.
Borussia Dortmund welcome Club Brugge at home hoping to get maximum points to stay in contention for a qualifying spot. In the last encounter between the two sides, Dortmund ran out comfortable winners with two goals from Norway sensation Erling Haaland finding the net twice. It will certainly not be an easy ride for the home team, but their greater attacking quality could prove the difference here.
On Tuesday evening, RB Leipzig head to Parc Des Princes to face group rivals PSG in what is truly developing as the group of death. Leipzig needed to win against their French opponents in their previous encounter and got exactly what they were looking for when they came from behind to come out 2-1 winners. A win which further highlighted this team’s character in a victory which puts them back in the mix for qualification.
Neighbours Borussia M’Gladbach host Shakhtar Donetsk in Group B with the German side looking to remain unbeaten after a strong start in the competition. They currently sit top of a very tough group having drawn to both Real Madrid and Inter Milan, before thumping the Ukrainians 0-6 in what was simply a one-sided affair. One again, they will be relying on prolific marksman Marcus Thuram to bang in the goals.
