Club football is back, after the final international break of 2019.T
here are a couple teams in action Friday that have UEFA Champions League matches next Tuesday and Wednesday.
Borussia Dortmund sits sixth in the crowded Bundesliga table, but is just two points off second place. The German side also has a massive game Wednesday at Barcelona in Group E action, so they will want to take care of business early in today's contest and get some players off the pitch, if possible.
PSG is in the same situation, with a match in Madrid Tuesday in Group A. But the Parisian side is nearly qualified, so they can look to build on their eight-point lead in Ligue 1 with win over Lille.
In England, the top of the EFL Championship table is muddled as well, and Fulham comes into Friday in seventh place. A win today, though, could bounce the Cottagers into the playoff places.
