Man City v Schalke – 8pm (Olly)
City lead the tie from their dramatic 3-2 win in the first leg. 2-1 down with 10 men until the 85th min. Ended up winning 3-2.
Since this loss, Schalke have continued their bad form an leaking goals.
They have conceded 11 goals in their last 3 games (losing all 3:, Werder Bremen, Dusseldorf and Mainz) Not looking good.
There have been loads of upsets so far, but I cant see there being one here.
City have won all their games since (well, one on pens) and are looking good. They are at home too so even more reason why this should be a given.
There is no value in City to win. (They obviously will though)
Sterling is on fire at the moment. Scored the winner in the last game and banged in a hat trick over the weekend vs Watford.

Manchester City v Schalke preview: all you need to know

Reporter’s view (Simon Hart, City are strong favourites to reach their third quarter-final in four years. Schalke gave them a scare in Germany but ultimately City punished their lapses. Josep Guardiola’s men are on a winning roll in the Premier League and, in all competitions, have nine straight home wins in 2019 (aggregate score: 39-3). Stones’ presence in training suggests he could play while Fernandinho’s absence shouldn’t be a problem given Gündogan’s rich form.

Possible line-ups

First-leg highlights

Man. City: Ederson; Walker, Stones, Laporte, Zinchenko; B Silva, Gundogan, D Silva; Sterling, Agüero, Sané
Out: De Bruyne (hamstring), Mendy (knee), Bravo (Achilles), Kompany (unspecified), Fernandinho (suspended), Otamendi (suspended)
Doubtful: Stones (muscular)
Misses next game if booked: Agüero

Schalke: Fährmann; Stambouli, Sané, Nastasić; McKennie, Konoplyanka, Rudy, Oczipka, Bentaleb; Embolo, Burgstaller
Out: Caligiuri (ankle ligament), Harit (disciplinary), Mascarell (groin), Schöpf (knee), Uth (disciplinary)


Key battle

Gündoğan v Bentaleb: Gelsenkirchen-born İlkay Gündoğan is expected to deputise for suspended talisman Fernandinho at the base of the City midfield. The German international will play a crucial role in knitting together the hosts’ attacks, as the Brazilian does so well, in addition to shielding a City defence shorn of Nicolás Otamendi, Vincent Kompany and possibly John Stones from Nabil Bentaleb, who scored two penalties in the first leg.

Many things can happen in 90 minutes in this type of competition. In the first leg we were quite lucky, playing for 20 to 25 minutes with ten men when 2-1 down. In normal circumstances we could have been out of this competition, so we were lucky.

I don’t feel the pressure to win it. Pressure is to do a good job, to compete better in quarter-finals and semi-finals, and to improve on past mistakes. This is a competition that punishes your mistakes a lot because of the quality of the opponents. This competition is not another game, it is a special game. Schalke had two shots on target and scored two goals in the first leg. We could have been 3-1 or 4-1 down coming into today.

Domenico Tedesco, Schalke coach

We are obviously massive outsiders, but we still have a small chance. We will need a special day. We are playing in the last 16 of the Champions League on merit.

We know our league situation only too well. It is precarious, highly dangerous. And yet we want to stand tall here and get a result. For long stretches of the first leg we did well.

Juventus v Atlético preview: all you need to know

Reporter’s view (Paolo Menicucci, Last week reminded us that nothing is impossible in the UEFA Champions League. However, to score three without reply against this Atlético side, you really do need something special. Cristiano Ronaldo, perhaps? CR7 has hit ten or more goals in each of his last eight Champions League campaigns, but he has just one to his name so far in 2018/19. Whether it’s Ronaldo or not, Juve must strike early.

Possible line-ups

First-leg highlights

Juventus: Szczesny; Cáceres, Bonucci, Chiellini; Bernardeschi, Can, Pjanić, Matuidi, Cancelo; Mandžukić, Ronaldo
Out: Khedira (heart), Alex Sandro (suspended), Barzagli (thigh), De Sciglio (thigh), Douglas Costa (thigh)
Misses next game if booked: Matuidi

Atlético Madrid: Oblak; Arias, Giménez, Godín, Juanfran; Koke, Rodrigo, Ñíguez, Lemar; Griezmann, Morata
: Diego Costa (suspended), Hernández (knee), Filipe Luís (calf), Partey (suspended)
Misses next game if booked: Ángel Correa, Filipe Luís, Giménez, Griezmann


Key battle

Ronaldo's 2017 semi-final hat-trick v Atlético

Ronaldo v Godín: Frequent adversaries down the years, Cristiano Ronaldo and Diego Godín resume their rivalry in Turin. The Portuguese has come out on top more often than not – as 22 goals in 32 appearances against Atlético testify – yet the Uruguayan had the upper hand in the first leg, silencing Ronaldo and scoring himself. Repeat those feats and Atlético will be well on their way to a last-eight berth.

Last game: Juventus 4-1 Udinese (08/03)

Watch the greatest ever second leg comebacks

Last game: Atlético 1-0 Leganés (09/03)

Massimiliano Allegri, Juventus coach

We believe in our chances. Things like 110% do not exist. Everybody will have to be at their best so we will don’t have regrets at the final whistle, be that after 90 or 120 minutes. We will have to be intelligent and avoid mistakes. It will be a great game and we will be ready for it.

I don’t think the playing system can impact the result, we just need to play more vertical with more pace. Ronaldo has so many goals in his feet that it always feels good to have him with us for these kinds of games.

Diego Simeone, Atlético coach

Tomorrow will be a game between two strong teams. We have to take advantage of any space that we get as we know we’ll be afforded much less than in the first leg. Juve are a very strong side, with very experienced players that are good not just in attack but also in defence. We will have to be very careful.

The first leg is one thing, the return is totally different. There are small details which can be very difficult to explain and can make the difference; this is why football is fantastic.

Arsenal v Rennes background

Rennes, enjoying the most successful European campaign in their history, bring a handy 3-1 lead to north London, obliging Arsenal to wipe out a first-leg deficit for the second round in succession as they chase back-to-back qualifications for the UEFA Europa League quarter-finals.

• Arsenal cruised through to the knockout phase from Group E, dropping just two points as they qualified with two games to spare, but they had a scare in the round of 32, BATE Borisov defeating them 1-0 in Belarus before the Londoners turned the tie around with a 3-0 second-leg success.

• Rennes recovered from three successive defeats to take Group K’s runners-up spot behind Dynamo Kyiv thanks to victories at Jablonec (1-0) and – in a must-win decider – at home to Astana on matchday six (2-0). They then caused an upset by defeating Group G winners Real Betis in the round of 32, winning 3-1 in Seville after a 3-3 home draw.

Highlights: Rennes 3-1 Arsenal

Previous meetings
• The clubs’ first meeting proved eventful as a raucous Roazhon Park crowd roared Rennes to a famous victory after they had conceded an early goal to Alex Iwobi. The turning point was Sokratis Papastathopoulos’s 41st-minute red card, which was immediately punished by a sumptuous equaliser from Benjamin Bourigeaud. An own goal from Nacho Monreal and Ismaïla Sarr’s diving header, both in the second half, put the Ligue 1 side in control of the tie while also inflicting on the visitors a first away defeat in France.

• This is Arsenal’s 26th UEFA fixture against opponents from France, and their 13th at home, where they have been victorious in only five of the previous 12, losing three. The most recent visit from a Ligue 1 club brought a 2-2 draw against Paris Saint-Germain in the 2016/17 UEFA Champions League group stage.

• Arsenal have won four of their five two-legged UEFA competition ties against French opposition, including two – against Nantes and Lens – en route to the 1999/2000 UEFA Cup final, but they lost the most recent, going down on away goals to Monaco in the 2014/15 UEFA Champions League round of 16 (1-3 home, 2-0 away).

• Rennes’ sole previous experience of English opposition before the first leg of this tie was a 2001 UEFA Intertoto Cup semi-final against Aston Villa that they lost on away goals after winning the first leg in Brittany (2-1 home, 0-1 away).

Pick of the saves from the last-16 first legs

Form guide
• The Gunners finished sixth in the 2017/18 Premier League – their lowest final placing under Arsène Wenger in his swansong season as manager after 22 years. It earned them a second successive qualification for the UEFA Europa League group stage.

• UEFA Champions League ever-presents for 19 successive seasons until last term, Arsenal reached the UEFA Europa League semi-finals at the first attempt, going out to eventual winners Atlético Madrid. This season they breezed through their group, an opening 4-2 win at home to Vorskla Poltava preceding four wins and a draw in which they conceded no further goals. That competition record-equalling run of five clean sheets ended at BATE, but an own goal and headers from defenders Shkodran Mustafi and Papastathopoulos secured a 3-0 home win and progress.

• Arsenal’s one previous UEFA Europa League round of 16 tie came last season against AC Milan, Wenger’s side progressing 5-1 on aggregate after winning the away first leg 2-0. It was the first time in eight years that the Gunners had won a European tie in the round of 16 following seven successive eliminations from that stage of the UEFA Champions League, including that one by Monaco in 2014/15.

• The 1999/2000 UEFA Cup runners-up picked up seven points at home in this season’s group stage. The round of 32 victory over BATE finally brought to an end a six-year sequence in which Arsenal had lost their first European home fixture of the spring and means their home record in two UEFA Europa League campaigns is now W7 D3 L1, with 26 goals scored and eight conceded.

• Arsenal have won only three of the 13 UEFA competition ties in which they were defeated away in the first leg, most recently overcoming BATE in this season’s round of 32. On the one occasion that they lost the first away leg 3-1, against Bayern München in the 2004/05 UEFA Champions League round of 16, they were eliminated despite a 1-0 second-leg victory at their old Highbury home.

Bourigeaud says Arsenal still favourites despite Rennes win

• Rennes earned their first ever qualifying exemption for the group stage of a major UEFA competition by finishing fifth in Ligue 1 last season.

• They have competed in the UEFA Europa League proper once before, in 2011/12, after coming through two qualifying rounds, but went out in the group stage after losing all three away fixtures and drawing all three at home – against Atlético Madrid, Celtic and Udinese. That was Rennes’ last European campaign before this one.

• Rennes participated twice in the UEFA Cup group stage, in 2005/06 and 2007/08, but were winless in those too (D2 L6). They finally recorded their first group win by defeating Jablonec 2-1 at home on matchday one this season thanks to a last-minute penalty.

• It was also against Jablonec, with a 1-0 win in the Czech Republic on matchday five, that Rennes ended an eight-match losing streak on their European travels outside the summer months – a run lasting over 11 years. They made it successive away wins with that 3-1 triumph at Betis.

• Rennes have won four of the six UEFA competition ties in which they held a first-leg lead going into the away fixture. They have been 3-1 winners at home once before in the first leg and it proved sufficient to win their 2005/06 UEFA Cup first-round tie against Osasuna, the second leg in Pamplona ending 0-0.

The coaches
• After two years with Paris Saint-Germain that yielded seven domestic trophies, Unai Emery was appointed as Arsenal manager in May 2018, replacing the long-serving Wenger. The Spaniard oversaw Sevilla’s historic hat-trick of successes in the UEFA Europa League from 2013/14 to 2015/16, having assumed control following a four-year tenure at Valencia and a brief stint at Spartak Moskva. He has been in charge of more UEFA Europa League games than any other coach, this being his 69th.

• There was a change of coach at Rennes on 3 December with the dismissal of Sabri Lamouchi. His place was initially taken on an interim basis by reserve team boss Julien Stéphan, whose first two Ligue 1 matches in charge both resulted in 2-0 wins, prompting the club to give him a deal until the end of the season on 12 December, the day before he led the club past Astana into the UEFA Europa League round of 32. He is the son of Guy Stéphan, the assistant coach to Didier Deschamps of reigning world champions France.
