The second day of the group stage of the Champions League continues with in particular the expected duel between the Moroccan quartet of Sevilla FC, Yassine Bounou, Munir El Haddadi, Youssef En-Nesyri and Oussama Idrissi. Hakim Ziyech’s FC Chelsea is also playing this Wednesday, October 28.
Sevilla’s Bounou, El Haddadi, En-Nesyri and Idrissi face Wednesday at 9:00 p.m., a crucial UEFA Champions League group stage game against Stade Rennais. Julen Lopetegui’s men will be looking for a victory at home, and could start to make the difference in Group E after drawing a draw with Chelsea (0-0) last week.
In addition, Chelsea is also playing this Wednesday against FC Karsnodar, at 6:55 p.m. An important match for Frank Lampard and his players, including Hakim Ziyech, who started during this meeting.
Although they have real attacking force, defending the Blues has always been problematic. The Premier League giants will have to travel to Russia to face a side from Krasnodar which have struggled in the league so far.
Another match eagerly awaited by the supporters, that of Juventus against FC Barcelona, at 9 p.m., in the hope of a reunion between the two titans, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo. However, once again tested positive, the Portuguese international will not take part in the meeting, against the Spanish club which has just separated from its president, Josep Maria Bartomeu.
Also on the bill, Paris Saint-Germain will meet Istanbul BB, also at 6:55 pm. PSG hit the road to Turkey to face Istanbul Basaksehir in the UEFA Champions League group stage with matchday two action on Wednesday. Both teams are in Group H and neither have a point after the first batch of matches. Istanbul lost 2-0 to RB Leipzig on Matchday 1, while PSG were upset 2-1 at home by Manchester United.
At 9pm, Borussia Dortmund host Zenit St. Petersburg in a Group F clash. Both sides have had disappointing results in the opening of their respective tournament, which puts a lot on the line in this important game.
The other matches of the evening at 9 p.m. concern Lazio against FC Bruges, Manchester United and RB Leipzig and Dynamo Kiev against Ferencváros.
