European competitions - previews for March 7-9
Part 1: Looking ahead to an exciting week of top-notch football
Welcome to our update of European competitions, including Champions League and Europa League.
For the current ranking of European teams and leagues please go to
Bayern Munich and the Bundesliga kept their top spots over the weekend. Napoli, PSG and Real Madrid remain the only non-BL/PL teams in the best ten clubs of Europe. We start into the week with a preview of the CL game of Chelsea and Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday.
Preview for Mar 7:
There will be one Ranko-relevant game on Tuesday, six more on Wednesday and Thursday.
FC Chelsea - Borussia Dortmund: Both times with all key players (except for long-time absentee Kanté). Dortmund enjoyed a streak of six wins in the last six games. Chelsea much less successful with only one win.
The Ranko prediction for the game is clearly opting for Dortmund on fourth spot and Chelsea on fortieth spot in the Ranko listing.
