Champions League 2nd round matches
Posted 20. octoober 2015
A showdown between two in-form forwards is one thing to look out for on matchday three, while Porto, Zenit and Fernando Torres aim to bring up significant milestones. There is no player in Europe who can match the prolific form of Robert Lewandowski at the moment, with the Bayern forward having struck 15 goals in his last seven outings for club and country. Arsenal's Alexis Sánchez is doing his best with ten in his last six and the Gunners certainly need the Chilean to come out on top against his Polish counterpart this week in Group F.
Maccabi Tel-Aviv sit bottom of Group G with zero points and if things were not tough enough already they visit what could be the most unforgiving place in Europe on Tuesday. Porto have won no less than their last 19 fixtures at the Estádio do Dragão – a run which includes the scalps of Bayern and matchday two opponents Chelsea.
After opening wins against Valencia and Gent, Zenit have the chance to become just the second Russian side to start the group stage with three successive wins when bottom-of-the-section Lyon arrive in Group H.
