Here, check out everything there is to know about this UCL game, such as the preview, information, storylines, predictions, odds and how to watch this match in the US.
The hosts know what it’s like to go far in the Champions League, reaching two finals in recent years but losing both against their bitter rivals Real Madrid (2014 and 2016).
