Midweek action: From Champions League to English Premier League, four key matches not to miss

The Champions League and Europa League action continues this week with a number of key clashes to look forward to. 

The Champions League promises to offer some cracking action, with four matches on the cards.

The English Premier League also continues, with a match on Monday night in Merseyside. 

So, what's on the menu this week?

Liverpool vs West Ham - Monday

The English Premier runaway leaders have a chance to continue with their unstoppable march to the title when they host David Moyes' West Ham on Monday night. 

The match might not seem important on some levels, but record-chasing Reds will be fired up to keep their winning form. 

West Ham, on the other hand, will be battling to get off the danger zone and a positive result will be massive in their quest. 

Chelsea vs Bayern Munich - Tuesday

The last time Frank Lampard faced Bayern in the Champions League was the 2012 finals when he captained the Blues to victory at the famous Allianz Arena.

He now meets the Bavarians in the knockout stage in what is arguably his biggest match yet at the helm of the club. 

They warmed for the test with a 2-1 win over London rivals Tottenham on Saturday, and from whichever angle you look at it, this promises to be an exciting clash. 

Can the Blues match the Bavarians?

Napoli vs Barcelona - Tuesday

Napoli seems to have hit some good form in the Italian Serie A, winning four of their last five matches. 

They have proved a hard nut to crack in Europe and showed exactly that when they floored defending champions Liverpool 2-0 in a group stage clash in September. 

Barcelona, on the other hand, have struggled at times while playing away from home, even though they lead LaLiga standings, three points ahead of Real Madrid. 

Can the hosts spring a surprise against one of the tournament's favorites? 

Real Madrid vs Manchester City - Wednesday

It's Zinedine Zidane vs Pep Guardiola at the Bernabeau. The two were successful players during their playing days and have equally managed to dazzle in management. 

Zidane's Madrid has kept pace with Barcelona at the top of LaLiga but fell three points off after losing to Levante on Saturday. 

City, on the other hand, have had a nightmarish campaign in the Premier League, but have looked dangerous in Europe. 

It will be a battle of the heavyweights and it promises fireworks.
