European competition returns this week with Tottenham travelling to AC Milan and Chelsea heading to Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League.
There is also the small matter of a Europa League showdown between Manchester United and Barcelona.
Here, the PA news agency looks at the form of the English teams’ opponents.
The seven-time European champions have endured a torrid start to the year and were without a win in seven matches until they picked up a much-needed victory over Torino on Friday, thanks to a goal from Olivier Giroud. Tuesday’s meeting with Tottenham is the club’s first Champions League knock-out tie since they were beaten 5-1 on aggregate by Atletico Madrid in the last 16 in 2014.
Barcelona moved 11 points clear at the top of LaLiga with a 1-0 win over Villarreal, their sixth-successive victory. Incredibly, Xavi’s side have conceded just seven goals in the league – once at home – and their only defeat all season was against rivals Real Madrid in December. Poland striker Robert Lewandowski is the league’s top scorer with 14 and has 25 in all competitions.
