UEFA Champions League: Tuesday's Previews

Manchester City can secure their spot in the knockout stages with a victory over Napoli in Group A after picking up back-to-back wins against Villarreal. Group A leaders Bayern Munich can confirm their progress to the last 16 when they play host to lowly Villarreal at the Allianz Arena with the Spaniards yet to pick up a point. Manchester United will celebrate qualification into the knockout stages by beating old European foes Benfica at Old Trafford. Inter Milan travel to Trabzonspor in Group B knowing a draw will be good enough to secure progression, but Claudio Ranieri's men will be out for revenge after losing their opening game in the group to the Turkish side. In Group D Real Madrid are already assured of their place in the next phase, but they will be aiming to secure top spot in the group when they play host to basement boys Dinamo Zagreb at El Santiago Bernabeu. Lyon play host to Ajax in a must-win encounter for the French side at Stade Gerland as they currently lie three points behind the Dutch giants.
