UEFA Champions League

UCL: Wednesday Matches, Fixtures, And Previews

Bayern vs PSG

The remaining 90 minutes of Christophe Galtier's coaching stint at Paris Saint-Germain might make or break the match on Wednesday night when Bayern Munich hosts Paris Saint-Germain at the Allianz Arena for the second leg of their Champions League last-16 encounter.

Three weeks prior, Bayern Munich won the first leg 1-0, giving die-hard Parisiens déjà vu. Kingsley Coman, a former PSG player, scored the lone goal. Bayern and PSG have faced off 12 times in that time, with the German and French champions each winning six matches. Yet, one manager will play Game 13 in unfortunate circumstances on Wednesday. 

Bayern Munich possible starting XI:

Sommer; Stanisic, Upamecano, De Ligt; Coman, Kimmich, Goretzka, Davies; Sane, Musiala; Choupo-Moting

PSG possible starting XI:

Donnarumma; Pereira, Marquinhos, Ramos; Hakimi, Ruiz, Verratti, Vitinha, Mendes; Messi, Mbappe

Tottenham vs AC Milan

Tottenham Hotspur will host AC Milan in the second leg of their Champions League round-of-16 encounter on Wednesday night in an effort to overturn a one-goal lead with Antonio Conte back in control. 

Brahim Diaz's early goal gave the Rossoneri a 1-0 lead in the first leg, but both teams were coming off disappointing home losses as they met in the middle of the week.

When his club was humiliated 4-1 by Leicester City before Diaz's goal in the seventh minute gave Milan a tenuous lead in the first leg of their Champions League round of 16 encounter on February 14, Conte's brief return to the bench could not have gone worse for the Italian.

For the perpetually inconsistent Tottenham, maintaining a slim shot at a Champions League triumph would definitely calm some of the customary fury circling the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. Milan has only lost three of its last 21 Champions League quarterfinal games after winning the first leg, but on their last three trips to London, they have been outscored 9-1.

Tottenham possible starting XI:

Forster; Romero, Lenglet, Davies; Emerson, Hojbjerg, Skipp, Perisic; Kulusevski, Kane, Son

AC Milan possible starting XI:

Maignan; Kalulu, Kjaer, Tomori; Saelemaekers, Krunic, Tonali, Hernandez; De Ketelaere, Giroud, Leao
