For Tuesday’s fixtures, it is clear that there are two matches that feature opponents that are almost evenly matched, on one hand there is the Italian giant hosting Spanish power house and kings of offsets (Roma and Atletico Madrid respectively) and though the start of the season have been a shaky one for the Spanairds, it remains a difficult for both teams as they would be looking forward to waxing all their strength to prove a point (or 3 points) to their home fans.
Then an almost replica is seen in that same day as Barcelona host Juventus who were responsible for eliminating them in the same competition in the knockout stages last season. Juventus who retain almost the same squad would look forward to showing Barcelona that it was more than a stroke, two strokes or three strokes of luck that they defeated the Catalonians, while Messi and his cohorts would be eager to get a pound of flesh in revenge.
Wednesday’s fixtures is a tough choice as there are a Tottenham force that is intent on marking their place in the competition coming against veterans, Dortmund, and RB Leipzig who seized the football world by storm last season as they gave Bayern Munich a run for their money in the domestic league facing French champions Monaco, who though are without Mbappe, can still hold their own.
Not overlooking a reinvented Liverpool side under the direction of Jurgen Klopp who have dangerous guests from Spain and Sevilla would want to make rue the day the fixture was announced.
A new week to look forward to if I say so, let us know your thoughts on the fixtures.
