5️⃣ Five clashes to look forward to this week

The Champions League and Europa League returns this week with a number of exciting matches to look forward to. 

Europe's premier club competition enters day four, with a number of teams on the brink of qualifying into the next round. 

We take a look at some of the top games!

PSG vs Leipzig - Tuesday

It will be a do-or-die match for last year's finalists when they host German side, RB Leipzig, on match four. Thomas Tuchel's side have won once in their last three matches to sit third three points below their Wednesday night opponents, and only a win could put their flickering hopes alive. 

A win could see them move level on points with Leipzig, which could blow the race for the knockout stage wide open. 

Inter vs Real Madrid  - Wednesday

A blockbuster Group B clash will see Inter Milan host Real Madrid at the San Siro Stadium on Wednesday night.  

Interestingly, the two, which are favourites to advance are third and fourth, with this a winner-take-it-all match as a loss for any of the two will see the slim hopes of making it into the knockout stage disappear.  

Sporting Braga vs Leicester  -  Thursday

Braga lost the reverse fixture 4-0 and will be eager to revenge the loss against the high-flying Foxes, who until Sunday night when they lost to Liverpool were leading the English Premier League standings. 

The Englishmen lead the standings on nine points, with their Thursday night opponents on six points. A win for the Portuguese club could see the two sides move level on points, even though they are both on course to making it into the next round.  

Rangers vs Benfica -  Thursday

Another exciting match on Thursday night will see Steven Gerrard's  Rangers host  Benfica in Glasgow.

The two sides are favourites to advance, and Benfica rested their entire team for the weekend's Portuguese Cup match to ensure their players are fresh for Thursday.

Benfica however have a  number of players out due to injury and positive COVID-19 cases, with Nuno Taveres, Andre Almeida, Jean-Clair Todibo, Pedrinho Darwin Nunez, and Julian Weigl all expected to miss the match.

Lille vs AC Milan  -  Thursday

Lille currently lead the group and a win will see them move a  step closer to qualifying to the next round and will feel confident having won away in Italy against the Zlatan-led side. 

The French club have been at their best, and aside from leading the group, they have scored the highest number of goals and conceded the least. 

Milan will have to wait a  little longer to learn the extent of an injury to their talisman Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who limped off the win against Napoli on Sunday.
