With four match-days remaining in the group stage, the middle match-days (MD-3 and MD-4) fixtures are mirrored, only the home advantage changing. As the away goal rule was abolished over the summer for all European competitions, the return of fans to the stadium is the major factor.

During the international break, France defeated Spain to win the UEFA Nations League tournament, compensating for the recent loss in UEFA Euro 2020. Most of the world’s national teams participated in FIFA World Cup qualification ties as well.

The players have returned to their respective clubs to re-ignite club competitions this weekend. By the time this article is published, most of Europe’s top clubs will have completed their domestic league matches to start preparations for mid-week UCL MD-3.

There are four marquee clashes to keep an eye on (fantasy managers should avoid their back line players): PSG hosts RB Leipzig, Atletico Madrid hosts Liverpool, and Atalanta will visits Man United. In group C, points will be dropped by either Ajax, Dortmund or both.

MD-3 represents the last chance to for a few clubs to return three points before advancement becomes unbearably difficult. Both Milano clubs, Inter Milan and AC Milan are in tough spots within their groups. The former will host fairy tail heroes Sheriff to put an end to their winning streak and climb the table. AC Milan however is yet to win a point so will need to defeat Porto to even stand a chance against titans Atletico Madrid and Liverpool.

RB Leipzig is not as strong as last season, and the results show. 23 year old Nkunku has been sensational this season, but one man cannot finish the job. If Leipzig is able to upset PSG this week, then this group will become a repeat of the group of death last season. Maybe worse with Club Brugge at four points from only two matches.

Barcelona is also under pressure after losing twice to sit 4th, behind MD-3 opponents Dynamo Kyiv. Spirits may be high for the Catalans after a domestic 3-1 victory over Valencia. Finally, underperforming Villarreal will get a chance to bounce from last place as well when they face Young Boys.

Atalanta will travel to Old Trafford to play struggling Man United, further testing management’s patience with Solskjaer, but many key injuries for the Italians may prevent them from adding insult to injury.

Ajax and Dortmund face off to determine the table positions in one of the most straight forward groups in this season’s UCL. Atletico Madrid exposed Liverpool’s defensive injuries when they met two years ago. The atmosphere in the English club’s locker room has recently changed for the better following comments from key players, and this has translated into performance on the pitch since the start of this season. It will be interesting to watch how both teams will tackle this match.
