MATCHDAY: Chelsea faces Dortmund in the Champions League

A look at what’s happening in European soccer on Tuesday:


Chelsea must overturn a 1-0 deficit against Borussia Dortmund in the round of 16 second leg at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday. Blues manager Graham Potter picked up a much-needed win against Leeds on Saturday, but will face even more pressure if his side is eliminated from European club soccer’s biggest competition. Benfica defends a 2-0 first-leg lead against Clubbe Brugge and already has one foot in the next round ahead of the second leg at Estadio da Luz.


Lazio hosts AZ Alkmaar in the first leg of the Europa Conference League round of 16. The Italian club has its sights on Champions League qualification and comes up against in-form Dutch team AZ, which has lost just one of its last 11 games in all competitions. The rest of the Europa Conference league matches will take place on Thursday.
