UEFA Champions League, gameweek 4: Preview, Dream11 and more
Tuesday sees gameweek 4 of the UEFA Champions League 2019-20 take place. Groups E-H are in action tonight. High-flying Chelsea host Dutch side Ajax at home. Group F sees Borussia Dortmund face an in-form Inter Milan. Holders Liverpool are also in action against Genk. Ahead of a crunch set of games, we look at the preview.
Chelsea will be aiming to collect all three points against Ajax in a crucial Group H clash at Stamford Bridge. Both teams have collected six points from three matches so far. Chelsea had beaten Ajax away in gameweek 3. A win for Chelsea will help them get closer to progression from the group. Chelsea have a 100%-win record against Dutch teams in Champions League.
Hosts Liverpool are up against Genk at Anfield. Jurgen Klopp's men go into the tie as favorites. A win for the Reds will take them within a point of qualification from Group E. Meanwhile, Group E leaders Napoli can aim to keep their unbeaten run on course. They are up against Salzburg at home. Napoli have seven points and a win will help them.
Borussia Dortmund will be keen to move on from the disappointing away result against Inter Milan and produce substance at home. Inter are in red-hot form and Dortmund will need to keep them at bay. It's expected to be a gigantic clash at Ruhr Valley. Meanwhile, Group F toppers Barcelona face Slavia Prague at home. A will put them on the brink of qualification.
