  6. Juve v Inter to be played behind closed doors?

    It is not yet known whether any restrictions will be applied to Sunday's Serie A match between Juventus and Inter in Turin.

    However, after a meeting of league officials on Monday, Italian football federation (FIGC) president Gabriele Gravina said: "For our Serie A championship we have planned for and asked to play the games behind closed doors.

    "That could happen as early as Sunday."

    Speaking on television on Sunday Italian prime minister, Giuseppe Conte, discussed the possibility of postponing more matches: "I too am a sports fan, and we will have to suffer a little bit, but at this point in time I wouldn't even know whether these measures [prohibiting large gatherings] will continue to be enforced into next week."

  8. Post update

    We heard last night that Inter Milan's Europa League last-32 home match against Ludogorets will be played behind closed doors because of fears about the spread of coronavirus.

    Inter were one of four Serie A clubs to postpone their weekend game.

    Talks have been taking place between the club, Italian government officials and European football's governing body Uefa about Thursday's fixture.

    With 165, Italy has the largest number of cases of the virus in Europe.

    Many schools and colleges have been closed in Milan on Monday, although the local transport system is operating.

    More than 600 Ludogorets fans were due to travel from Bulgaria for Thursday's Europa League last-32 first-leg match at the San Siro.

  11. Lewandowski a huge threat - Lampard

    Chelsea v Bayern Munich (20:00 GMT)

    The last time these two met in Europe was in the 2012 Champions League final, when Chelsea won on penalties...

    But the Blues have been eliminated in the last 16 of each of their last three Champions League campaigns, have failed to reach the quarter-finals since 2014, and will need to be wary of the threat posed by Bayern striker Robert Lewandowski.

    Lewandowski has scored 42 goals in 38 games this season, and Bayern manager Hansi Flick said before the match that the Pole was in "the form of his life".

    "He's top-fit and full of confidence," said Flick. "He has a real run at the moment, and we hope that he will continue that here.

    "As a leader up front he is very important for us."

    Lampard has also acknowledged the danger posed by Lewandowski: "His goalscoring, everything about him from afar; he's just top-class. He's a huge threat."

  12. No doubts for Lampard

    Chelsea v Bayern Munich (20:00 GMT)

    Chelsea manager Frank Lampard says he has "no doubts" about his young squad going into tonight's game against German champions Bayern Munich.

    "I trust in all the players who have been part of the squad this year," said Lampard. "They've earned trust in the way they've played.

    "A big part of my job tomorrow is to explain to the players that over two legs we need to be at our maximum. We need every detail, every box ticked in both games."

  14. Kante out for Chelsea

    Chelsea v Bayern Munich (20:00 GMT)

    Chelsea's N'Golo Kante will miss Tuesday's Champions League last-16 first leg with Bayern Munich.

    The midfielder is expected to be out for about three weeks with an adductor injury.

    Christian Pulisic, Pedro and Callum Hudson-Odoi are also unlikely to feature, but Ruben Loftus-Cheek is available after returning to the bench against Tottenham on Saturday.

    Bayern defender Niklas Sule (knee) and forward Ivan Perisic (ankle) are out.

    Spanish midfielder Javi Martinez could return, however, after missing the previous six matches with a muscle tear.

  15. Post update

    The Champions League is back tonight, with Chelsea hosting Bayern Munich at Stamford Bridge in the first leg of their last-16 clash.

    I went to Munich to chat to former Arsenal winger Serge Gnabry, who scored four against Spurs on his last visit to London with Bayern, and in a shameless plug you can watch that interview below, or read more of what the Germany star had to say here.

  19. Bend it Like Trent?

    Trent Alexander-Arnold got two assists last night, taking his Premier League tally for the season to 12 and making it 25 in total in the top flight.

    Only Cesc Fabregas (at 20 years 134 days) and Wayne Rooney (21 years 63 days) have reached 25 Premier League assists at a younger age.

    It is also the joint-most by a Liverpool defender in the competition along with Stig Inge Bjornebye.

    Former Manchester United wide man - Assist King and Lord of the Whip - David Beckham's best for a season was 15 in 1999-2000.
