Football: posters not to be missed, French clubs, on which channels… The guide to the European week

Fifteen days after the start of the three European competitions, the first flashes of brilliance and the first surprises, make way for a new starry week on Tuesday 28, Wednesday 29 and Thursday 30 September. From posters to the TV program, here is the information to know before this second day.

PSG-City, Juventus-Chelsea, Napoli, Leverkusen … big shocks not to be missed

Several posters will mark out this European week. From Tuesday evening, all eyes will be on Paris and the Parc des Princes where PSG welcomes Manchester City, for the big shock of group A. At the same time, AC Milan will face Atlético de Madrid, in a match already decisive to stay in the wake of Liverpool, the only three-point team in group B. The next day, in group H, the defending champion Chelsea moves on the lawn of a Juventus in bad shape in its national championship (9th) .

The Europa League also promises great oppositions on Thursday. At 6.45 p.m., Napoli, already under pressure after their spectacular draw against Leicester (2-2) on Matchday 1, received the Russians from Lokomotiv Moscow (group C). At 9 p.m., Leverkusen, second in the Bundesliga, will try to confirm his good form against Celtic Glasgow (group G).

Finally, in the Europa League Conference, the two big favorites will also be on deck Thursday evening. José Mourinho’s Roma travels to Ukraine, to Zorya Luhansk (6:45 p.m., group C), while Spurs from Tottenham welcome Slovenes from NS Mura (9 p.m., group G).

French clubs expected at the turn

The French representatives will have a lot to do this week and things to prove. After their inaugural draw against Bruges, the Parisians must show a different face against the team which eliminated them at the gates of the final last year, and which represents the most serious opposition in the group. On the side of Lille, a first victory is possible on the ground of RB Salzburg, opponent considered the most affordable of the group.

In the Europa League, confirmations are awaited. Those of Lyon and Monaco, both winners on the first day and the only leaders of their groups. A second success in a row is within the reach of the Lyonnais, who receive Brondby at Parc OL. For Monaco, who travel to Real Sociedad, surprising runners-up to Real Madrid in La Liga, the task seems a little more difficult.
