Real Madrid, who have won Europe’s most coveted prize in four of the last six seasons, will host Manchester City, the two-time reigning Premier League champions and arguably this season’s favorites, in the first leg at the Santiago Bernabeu on Wednesday. Pep Guardiola will be reacquainted with the Madrid faithful, and Man City will take the next step toward winning the Champions League — at least, they hope so — before they are currently set to be banned from the competition for the next two seasons.

Guardiola has thrown a massive curveball by dropping Sergio Aguero to the bench and electing to start Gabriel Jesus instead. Raheem Sterling, who was deemed “fit and ready” to return to action from a hamstring injury, is also on the bench.

In the day’s other game, Lyon will host Juventus.

Below is the full schedule for the two UCL last 16 first leg games on Wednesday, with both games kicking off at 3 p.m. ET. You can follow the action live by clicking on the link above.
