UEFA Champions League Matchday 4 Preview

By  Umair Asif - 1 November 2016

It’s time for reverse fixtures and the only thing in the air is revenge. UEFA Champions League Matchday 4 will be phenomenal as teams that collided on Matchday 3 will be up against each other once again.

The most anticipated tie of Matchday 4 will be Man City v Barça. Pep was severely humiliated when he visited Camp Nou last time round. But things will be different this time as Man City will be at home and MSN will have to be much more creative than usual.

Napoli will be more eager to return the favor to Besiktas when the two teams meet again this week. Besiktas stunned Napoli at home and the side from Naples will have to win this to stay in contention for the round of 16. Tottenham will host Bayern Leverkusen and will be aiming to win this one after a goalless draw at Germany. Both teams will be hoping to steal some points from this one as the group stage progress towards conclusion.

Leicester, defeated København on Matchday 3, but this time there is a bit of twist as the Foxes will have to play away from home. Although they have already registered an away win against Club Brugge but visiting Danish champions at home will be their first real test.  All eyes will be on Leicester, who are still unbeaten and also yet to concede a goal in the competition.

Real Madrid and Dortmund will be play big with their extremely destructive squads, with hopes to keep the unbeaten run going. All in all, it will be another exciting round of fixtures with every side aiming to give their best. The plot is ready and here are the top fixtures from Matchday 4: 

Besiktas v Napoli

The Turkish Champions will host Napoli after defeating them at Naples last time around. It was an exciting match with goals coming from both sides. A tie that kept the audience going is heading towards its reverse fixture but this time Besiktas has the home advantage. The exciting part, however, will be to see whether Besiktas can repeat the same result at home or will Napoli deliver a nasty blow of revenge. Only time will reveal, but it will be a clash of titans when the two sides face each other on Matchday 4.

Man City v Barcelona

Pep Guardiola will be seeking revenge for the humiliation he received last time around when Barça smashed Man City at Camp Nou. The much hyped tie turned out to be a one-sided affair as Barça gave Man city no chance to settle and netted back-to-back goals, gifting Guardiola his worst defeat as a manager. Well, all that is history and we need to focus on Barça’s visit to Etihad.  All eyes will be on MSN and City’s defense, a love story not to be discussed.  Anyhow, we expect Man City to replicate their league form against Barça and make things even more interesting in the group.
