Champions League Day 5, Tuesday Nov 27
November 27, 2018 -- Champions League Matchday 5, Tuesday fixtures.
The Stadio Olimpico in Rome hosts a pivotal battle between AS Roma and Spanish giants Real Madrid. With both teams set to advance to the knock-out stages in February, the clash could decide who qualifies as group winners, and avoids toughest of the Last 16 ties. Reigning champions Real defeated the Italian’s at home in September, but a surprise defeat at Viktoria Plzen has handed last season’s semi-finalists, Roma, the opportunity to oust them for supremacy of Group G, despite winning only one of five matches at home to Real.
Elsewhere, Manchester City travel to Olympique Lyon, and Bayern Munich host Benfica.
