revived Barca icon of Messi'
Lionel Messi should play in UEFA club competition in his 150th match at Matchday 3-#39 to expand his 70 group stage goals record. If that wasn't eerie enough for Dynamo Kyiv, Blaugrana headed this game with the maximum points in Group G' behind their season-best performance – a stunning 2-0 win over Juventus. Considering that Ousmane Dembélé' both scored in group games and wonder boy Ansu Fati and Pedri' improved as well, visitors can't keep up with Messi'.
Will Haaland continue?
The Erling Braut Haaland caravan continued to progress rapidly in the final timeout as his goal against Zenit' went up to 14' in many games for club and country this season. But can he do it on a cold November night in Belgium? Turns out he already has it. The ruthless Norwegian player was only 25 minutes away from the bench to score in Genk' in the group stage last term, and he scored a hat-trick in the first half in the first match of the sides. Still, Club Brugge will not make things easy – they are above Dortmund' in this division, they are undefeated and only conceded two goals.
Leipzig and Paris' have points to prove
Manchester United stole a march against their Group H rivals and could be six points off the field when the Leipzig v Paris game kicks off. This makes the double header on match days 3 and 4 important for the respective semi-finalists and runners-up of last season. The French side finished their 24-game unbeaten run against United with a tense win at Istanbul#39 in the group stage, but Thomas Tuchel knows that more improvement is needed. Likewise, for Leipzig, who lost a record 5-0/#39 in the competition in England for the last time; they lost 3-0 to Paris' in the semi-finals last season.
Rashford draws attention
Marcus Rashford''s off-court successes recently earned him an MBE, but that didn't keep his eyes on the ball on the court. The Manchester United striker snatched the first hat-trick of his club career against Leipzig' and became the group stage top scorer, as well as a win in Match 1 against Paris'. Can Başakşehir stop him and what would he give for a striker of similar form? now? The Turkish champions have yet to score in this division and have left gaps in four of their seven league games this term.
Home comfort for Werner?
Chelsea''s early-season defensive problems seem to have made history after four clean sheets in a row, so the focus now shifts to an anomaly at the other end of the pitch. Timo Werner smashed the European duck for the club with a penalty in Krasnodar, but all eight of the UEFA Champions League goals have now been scored from home. Rennes have held out only once in 11 games this season, so Germany may not have a better chance to finish their streak at Stamford Bridge.
