The pick of the late games sees Chelsea host Juventus at Stamford Bridge at 9pm on SuperSport Premier League (DStv channel 203) and look for revenge for the 1-0 loss they suffered in Turin back on Matchday 2 in September. “I don’t know why, it was the whole team. I felt we were a bit slow and tired, mentally slow in our decision making. That’s why it’s a strange one to analyse,” admitted Blues coach Thomas Tuchel.
Tuesday also features Barcelona looking for a home win over Benfica at 9pm on SuperSport Variety 1 to ease their recent woes, while Sevilla will back themselves to claim a home win in Group G when VfL Wolfsburg head to Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan at 9pm on SuperSport Variety 3 (DStv channel 208).

The pick of the late games sees Manchester City host Paris Saint-Germain at 9pm on SuperSport Premier League, with the French side having beaten the English champions 2-0 when the teams last met in Group A at the Parc des Princes.
“It’s the best you can have. If you want to be at the top and be the number one you need to play against the best. It’s challenging, but it’s a chance to prove yourself. It’s a special moment to play these games,” said Man City defender Ruben Dias.
