Kick Off!

The games are underway! Which teams will complete the remaining Quarter-final slots? We would find out after 90 minutes.

All eyes are on Thomas Tuchel’s Blues as they look to book their place in the Champions League quarter-final draw on Friday, if they can maintain their lead over French side Lille tonight.

Chelsea built a 2-0 aggregate advantage over their last-16 opponents in the first leg of the tie at Stamford Bridge, courtesy of goals from Kai Havertz and Christian Pulisic.

Amid a tumultuous time off the pitch, the defending European champions continue to impress on it and have won their last four matches in all competitions.

Lille beat Paris Saint-Germain to last season’s Ligue 1 title but have drifted domestically this campaign, yet pose a threat having come through a decent group to make the knockouts. Jocelyn Gourvennec’s side have also not conceded a goal since the first leg.

Team News

Villarreal coach Unai Emery wants his side to be remembered for its accomplishments in this season’s Champions League, starting with a win in its last-16 match at Juventus on Wednesday.

The teams are level at 1-1 after the first leg in Spain. The former Arsenal and Paris St-Germain boss has good memories from Turin, where he guided Sevilla to its third Europa League title with a 4-2 shootout win over Benfica in 2014.
