Two Premier League sides hope to make it an unbeaten midweek for England’s top flight in the UEFA Champions League when Wednesday’s group stage games hit the stage.

A win in Denmark would push Leicester City into the knockout rounds, though a draw could do the trick as well. The Foxes beat Copenhagen at King Power Stadium despite plenty of in-game hiccups, and it’ll be much harder at Telia Parken.

Tottenham Hotspur needs to handle visiting Bayer Leverkusen in a crowded Group E. Spurs lead their German visitors by two points, and have scored just two goals through three matches. Four of the six matches in the group have been draws, with Monaco atop the group and CSKA Moscow bottom. The pair are separated by just three points as the Russians head to Monaco.

Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund can both clinch spots in the knockout rounds with Wednesday wins over Legia Warsaw and Sporting Lisbon, respectively. The same is true in Group H, where Juventus and Sevilla are both on seven points and staring down Lyon and Dinamo Zagreb.
