UEFA Champions League

UCL: Tests For Barcelona And Paris Saint Germain, Player To Watch Today

We’ve reached the business end of the Champions League group stage.

Let’s see what’s in store for matchday four.

Dynamo Kyiv VS Barcelona

In any normal season not many outside of the sets of supporters of the two clubs would take a second glance at a Barcelona trip to Dynamo Kyiv.

But this isn’t a normal season for the Catalans, and that could be amplified by the fact the club could be playing Europa League football after Christmas.

That predicament would a lot less possible if they do pick up three points in Ukraine, which would leave a place in the Champions League knockout rounds in their hands going into the final two games.

With just two wins in their last ten games in all competitions, that might be easier said than done.

Borussia Dortmund Vs Ajax

This Ajax team might just be better than the one that made it to the semi-finals in 2018/19.

Erik ten Hag’s side have scored 48 goals in their 14 games in all competitions so far this season, including four in the first offering of this fixture three weeks ago.

The Bundesliga side won their first two games but could find themselves in a tricky position if they don’t pick up all three points on Wednesday.

With two attacking teams playing in front of a Westfalenstadion crowd in full voice, this one should be a cracker.

RB Leipzig Vs PSG

PSG came away with the victory when this two met in the first fixture but it was a tie that was very much in the balance until Lionel Messi intervened.

Jesse Marsch’s side are pointless in their European campaign so far so it’s a case of ‘do-or-die’ on Wednesday night, even a qualification spot in the Europa League is starting to look beyond their reach.

If Leipzig can produce a similar performance to the one they put together in Paris then they will give themselves a fighting chance of upsetting the apple cart.

And PSG’s progress to the last-16 may have to wait another few weeks.

Vinicius Junior (Real Madrid)

The 21-year-old has made an electric start to the season, scoring nine goals and providing five assists in all competitions.

It’s two goals and two assists in the Champions League alone as the Brazilian has taken on the baton of becoming Real Madrid’s key ‘difference-maker’.

Los Blancos need a victory to take control of their group, and surely Vinícius will have a say in them obtaining it.
