With the UEFA Champions League round of 16-second legs being played amidst a host of key league encounters, here’s a look at some of the top fixtures that all football fans must have on their radar this month.
PSG vs Borussia Dortmund
Wednesday 11 March
UEFA Champions League - SS5 (SA), SS12 (SA) & SS3 (ROA), SS8 (ROA) | Kickoff at 22:00 (CAT)
PSG have been eliminated in the first knockout round in each of the last three seasons and they will have to overturn a 2-1 deficit from the first leg if they are to end that run. They’ll have to keep striker Erling Haaland at bay to do so, with the Norwegian scoring 10 goals in seven UEFA Champions League games this season.
Liverpool vs Atletico Madrid
Wednesday 11 March
UEFA Champions League - SS3 (SA) & SS5 (ROA) | Kickoff at 22:00 (CAT)
Liverpool suffered their first Premier League defeat of the season at the hands of Watford and they go into the second leg against Atletico Madrid 1-0 down on aggregate. They will be boosted by playing the second leg at Anfield where they haven’t lost a UEFA Champions League game under Jurgen Klopp.
Tottenham vs Manchester United
Sunday 15 March
Premier League - SS3 | Kickoff at 18:30 (CAT)
It’s a case of Jose Mourinho welcoming his old club when Manchester United play at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium for the first time. United have picked up away wins in some big games this season (beating the likes of Manchester City and Chelsea on the road) and will be looking for three points in a game that could have a huge bearing on UEFA Champions League qualification.
Chelsea vs Manchester City
Saturday 21 March
Premier League - SS3 | Kickoff at 14:30 (CAT)
Chelsea have found themselves in the top four for the majority of the season and might need to find a way to get three points against last season’s champions to keep up their challenge for UEFA Champions League qualification. Recent history is on City’s side though with Pep Guardiola’s team coming out on top in seven of their last eight meetings with the Blues.
