The UEFA Champions League Round of 16 second-leg matches will take centre stage on Tuesday night.

Three African stars are expected to feature for their European clubs in arguably the biggest club competition in the world.

Ivory Coast captain Serge Aurier is set to start for Tottenham Hotspur when they take on German side RB Leipzig at the Red Bull Arena.

Leipzig, who have Malian midfielder Amadou Haidara on their books, secured a surprise 1-0 victory over their much-fancied English opponents in the first-leg clash at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Haidara was introduced in the second-half in London, while Tottenham’s first-choice right-back Aurier played the entire encounter.

Meanwhile, Central African Republic (CAR) international Geoffrey Kondogbia will be in action for Valencia against Italian side Atalanta at the Estadio Mestalla.

Kondogbia played the entire match as his Spanish side was embarrassed 4-1 by tournament debutants, Atalanta at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza.

The winners on aggregate will advance to the quarter-finals.
