Midweek fixtures: Six mouth-watering clashes to look forward to including Man City vs Arsenal

Football fans have been treated to scintillating football in recent weeks, ranging from blockbuster clashes in the Champions League, Europa League, and Europe's top five leagues. 

This week promises to be no different, with a number of mouth-watering clashes lined up. 

Four teams will earn their Champions League quarter-final tickets as they play return matches, while Europa League also continues. 

Two matches in the English Premier League are also on the menu, and it promises to be an exciting week. 

Leicester vs Aston Villa - Monday

This is a battle of the top and bottom sides of the table. Leicester are in the hunt for a Champions League ticket and will be keen on picking a win to keep a safe distance between them (in third) and Chelsea, in fourth.  

Aston Villa, on the other hand, are battling for survival and remain rooted in the red zone, four points above bottom-placed Norwich City. 

They have already met thrice this season, including a two-legged cup tie which the Villains won 3-2 on aggregate. 

Leipzig vs Tottenham - Tuesday

Leipzig have drawn their last two domestic fixtures, greatly harming their Bundesliga title hopes. They, however, picked a vital 1-0 away to Tottenham in the first leg of the last 16 Champions League tie and will be hoping to get the job done. 

Jose Mourinho's Spurs have also endured a rough patch in recent matches and did not have the best preparation either as they were held 1-1 away to Burnley in the Premier League on Saturday. 

Can they stage a comeback as they did against Ajax last season? 

Manchester City vs Arsenal - Wednesday 

The race for a top-four finish in the Premier League is heating up with all the big boys in with a chance. 

Arsenal have boosted their hopes in recent matches and collected their third consecutive win on Saturday against West Ham. 

City, on the other hand, suffered a damaging 2-0 defeat away to neighbors Manchester United on Sunday evening, and this clash at Etihad will be one to watch. 

One more thing, it'll be Pep Guardiola against his former assistant Mikel Arteta, it couldn't get more exciting than this. 

Liverpool vs Atletico - Wednesday

The defending Champions endured a torrid night in Madrid in the first leg of the tie. They will be ready when Diego Simeone's men come knocking and you expect an atmosphere like no other at Anfield. 

Past clashes at the stadium have been electric and expect this to be even more entertaining. 

PSG vs Dortmund

Erling Haaland was the star of the show with two well-taken goals in the first leg in Germany, even though the Parisians, through their mercurial forward Neymar, scored an important away goal. 

The tie is far from over and expect a flurry of goals in the French capital. 

Sevilla vs Roma

The Europa League last 16 continues this week with a number of entertaining matches. Sevilla hosting Roma is the highlight of the round and expect an end-to-end clash in Spain. 

The Spanish side played out an entertaining 2-2 draw against Atletico Madrid over the weekend, while the Italian side hasn't been in action since their 4-3 win over Cagliari on March 1st.
