Tue 4 May by Mark Gleeson


Manchester City are in the driving seat as they seek to keep up their aggregate advance against Paris St Germain in their semi-final second leg tie.

Tuesday 4 May S10 V1

M1 Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila v Kaizer Chiefs: TTM lost at home on Saturday and remain second from bottom in the DStv Premiership. Chiefs have won two of their past 13 league matches.

M2 Notts County vs Sutton United: Sutton United are chasing the National League title and automatic promotion to the Football League for the first time. Notts have not won in their last six outings.

M3 GAIS Goteborg vs Oster Vaxjo: Both clubs have made an unbeaten start to the new Swedish second division season, with two wins and a draw apiece. 

M4 Holstein Kiel vs SV Sandhausen: Holstein can go back into third place in the German second division and a promotion playoff spot if they win this catch-up game. Sandhausen are one point above the relegation places.

M5 Le Havre vs Toulouse: Le Havre are without a victory from their past six fixtures while Toulouse have lost two in a row as they chase promotion back to Ligue 1.

M6 Blackpool vs Doncaster Rovers: Blackpool’s last two games have both been away wins. Doncaster also won away at the weekend at Rochdale.

M7 Charlton Athletic v Lincoln City: Charlton must win their last two games to ensure participation in the League One playoffs. Lincoln can no longer win automatic promotion but need only point to ensure a promotion play off place.

M8 Luton Town vs Rotherham United: Rotherham are still alive in their bid to stave off relegation but this is a must-win match for them. Luton are on a five-match unbeaten run.

M9 Shrewsbury Town vs Ipswich Town: Both clubs have posted a single win in their last five outings. Ipswich are unbeaten in three previous matches against Shrewsbury.

M10 Manchester City vs Paris St Germain: Man City are on the brink of a first-ever Champions League final as they lead PSG 2-1 from last week’s first leg of their semi-final tie.
