M1 El Geish vs Al Masry: In 32 past meetings, these clubs have drawn 16 times. Al Masry lead 9-7 in the win count of matches that were not a stalemate.

M3 APOEL Nicosia vs Anorthosis Famagusta: First leg of the cup quarter-final in Cyprus. Last month Anorthosis won 2-0 away at Apoel in league action.

M8 Manchester City vs Sporting Lisbon: An emphatic victory in Lisbon has put Manchester City in sight of a fifth successive Champions League quarter-final and left Sporting facing the prospect of another heavy last-16 loss.

M9 Real Madrid vs Paris St Germain: Real Madrid face a first-leg deficit as Paris Saint-Germain come to the Santiago Bernabéu for the second leg of their Champions League round of 16 tie with a lead to defend thanks to a late moment of inspiration from Kylian Mbappé.

M10 Fluminense vs Olimpia: Fluminense are on a run of 11 successive victories since the start of the year. Olimpia are also unbeaten since the new season in Paraguay kicked off.
