5 football games to look forward to in March
- Let's take a look at the five monumental clashes set for March.
#3 Liverpool vs Atletico Madrid (March 11- Champions League)
Liverpool are set to welcome Diego Simeone's Atletico Madrid to Anfield for the second leg of their Champions League Round of 16 fixture on March 11. The Premier League leaders trail 0-1 to Los Rojiblancos as the Spanish side registered a shock first-leg win over Jurgen Klopp's men at the Wanda Metropolitano courtesy of a Saul Niguez goal.
The Madrid giants will hope to progress through to the last eight after their fantastic performance in their home leg, but the last place a team would want to play the second leg is a roaring Anfield. This game has it all - a great defence against an extraordinary attack and two quality managers going against each other- all elements of a phenomenal game.
#4 PSG vs Dortmund (March 11- Champions League)
French frontrunners Paris Saint-Germain will host German top-dogs Borussia Dortmund at the Parc des Princes on March 11. Although the Ligue 1 giants are trailing 1-2 to their Bundesliga opponents, they have a more than capable attack force- in Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and Mauro Icardi- to win it back on their home turf.
However, to do that, their defence has to successfully cope with the likes of Erling Haaland and Jadon Sancho at the other end of the pitch. To top that attack force, Dortmund's captain Marco Reus might just be fit in time to make it in for the fixture. Two brilliant attacking outfits against two mediocre defences, this match could be a goal-fest.
#1 Manchester City vs Real Madrid (March 17- Champions League)
The tie of the month comes in the form of the Manchester City and Real Madrid fixture as the reigning Premier League champions will welcome the Spanish giants to the Etihad with a 2-1 first-leg lead from the Bernabeu. The Citizens arguably enjoyed their greatest ever Champions League night when they defeated Los Blancos at their home ground.
However, the job is still only half done for Pep Guardiola's men as they look to seal their spot in the last eight of the competition. Meanwhile, their Madrid giants need at least two away goals to have any chance of going through and they will open themselves to their English opponents trying to get those. All in all, this clash promises to be a monumental one.
