UEFA Champions League
Match 1, 17:55: Shakhtar Donetsk vs Dinamo Zagreb
Matchday 3 in Group C will provide the first insight as to who will finish as the group’s runner-ups. Shakhtar Donetsk and Dinamo Zagreb both lost to Manchester City in their respective matches, but they also defeated.
The Ukrainians have lost once and won once in this season’s group stages. Their loss to Manchester City seemed inevitable, but Shakhtar recorded a last-minute victory in Atalanta on Matchday 2, meaning the Ukrainians are still very much alive in the group.

Match 2, 17:55: Atletico Madrid vs Bayer Leverkusen
Atletico Madrid will be looking to move onto seven points in Group D when they welcome Bayer Leverkusen to the Wanda Metropolitano in the Champions League on Tuesday night. Diego Simeone’s side are currently second in the section on four points, while Leverkusen are fourth having lost both of their group matches to Lokomotiv Moscow and Juventus.
Atleti have picked up 4 points from a possible 8, another win on Tuesday night would place the Spanish outfit in a strong position, but their form in recent weeks has not been convincing
Leverkusen, though, will enter the match off the back of a poor run of results. Indeed, Peter Bosz’s side are without a win in any competition since the end of September, losing two of their last three matches. Friday’s defeat at Eintracht Frankfurt in the Bundesliga was the second time that they had lost 3-0 in their last three matches having also been on the wrong end of the same scoreline when they travelled to Juve in the Champions League on October 1.
.Die Werkself have actually reached the last 16 or better in seven of their last eight Champions League campaigns, which is an indication of their standing in
I be mad for modules, because they are the fancy!!
