LONDON -- Protecting 2-0 leads from their last-16 first legs, Barcelona and Bayern Munich are huge favourites to advance in the Champions League this week when they play return matches at home. Marco Asensio Spain Jersey . Yet theres enough evidence to suggest Europes two heavyweight teams still have plenty of work to do. Barcelona has lost three of its last six matches in the Spanish league, giving Manchester City renewed hope the two-goal deficit may not be too much to bridge. Arsenal, meanwhile, heads to Bayern having won 2-0 at the Allianz Arena in a round-of-16 second leg last season. In this weeks other second legs, Atletico Madrid leads AC Milan 1-0 and Paris Saint-Germain is 4-0 in front against Bayer Leverkusen. ------ Here is a lookahead to the games in Europes top knockout competition on Tuesday and Wednesday: BAYERN MUNICH vs. ARSENAL Bayern is heeding the lesson learned from losing to Arsenal at home in the last 16 last season, when only away goals ensured progress before it went on to win the title. Another 2-0 loss on Tuesday would level the aggregate score. "If we let Arsenal have the ball, well have big, big problems," said Bayern coach Pep Guardiola, who otherwise has little to worry about. Guardiola had a full squad to choose from for Saturdays 6-1 rout at Wolfsburg. Defender Holger Badstuber was among the 20 players to travel after recovering from tearing the cruciate ligament in his right knee. The win was Bayerns 16th in a row, setting a new record in the Bundesliga, where the side is undefeated in 49 games. In inspiring Arsenal to a 4-1 win over Everton in the FA Cup quarterfinals on Saturday, Germany playmaker Mesut Ozil returned to the kind of form that persuaded the Gunners to break their club record to sign him from Real Madrid in the summer. ------ ATLETICO MADRID vs. AC MILAN Atletico Madrid will have two reasons to feel good about its chances to advance past AC Milan on Tuesday. First, leading scorer Diego Costa will be well rested after missing Saturdays Spanish league win at Celta Vigo due to a one-game suspension. Diego Costa scored the winner in Atleticos 1-0 first-leg victory at Milan. And second, David Villa has found his scoring touch after firing home two well-taken goals with Diego Costa unavailable over the weekend in Atleticos 2-0 victory in Vigo that kept it in the Spanish title chase. Coach Diego Simeone may opt to return to aligning both strikers as he did earlier in the season after not playing Villa in the first leg in Italy or in a recent derby against Real Madrid. Milan has lost its last two Serie A matches but has Mario Balotelli back from a shoulder injury that has sidelined him since the first leg. ------ BARCELONA vs. MANCHESTER CITY Barcelona is playing its worst football since the end of last season, when the team limped to the Spanish league title. After apparently being rejuvenated under first-year coach Gerard Martino, the side has dropped points in five of the last nine rounds to go from pacesetter to chasing Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid. With its domestic title defence in question, failing to protect a 2-0 first-leg advantage over City at the Camp Nou and an early exit from Europe would be nothing less than disastrous for the Catalan club. The match comes four days after Barcelona lost 1-0 at relegation-threatened Valladolid, when only Lionel Messi appeared up to the task. Barcelona midfielder Sergio Busquets said his team needs to rediscover "the desire to win every game." "We have had enough after this loss," Busquets said. City, meanwhile, will be hoping to build on its winning momentum since lifting the League Cup. It will have forward Sergio Aguero back from injury to help. ------ PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN vs. BAYER LEVERKUSEN PSG is all but qualified for the quarterfinals and this gives coach Laurent Blanc the chance to give some of his key players a breather for the return leg against Leverkusen. Only a monumental collapse will see the German side through but with Zlatan Ibrahimovic in a hungry mood and PSG scoring freely, it seems another hiding is the more likely scenario for Leverkusen, which has lost five of its past six games. With a tough match to follow on Sunday against in-form Saint-Etienne, it seems Blanc is already preparing ahead. "We have an important game against Saint-Etienne coming up," he said. "Whatever team is selected, theres always the same desire to win. Its important for the big teams to have this." Although Ibrahimovic should start, he could come off in the second half, thus giving Blanc the chance to switch Edinson Cavani from the right wing and play him in his favouredcentre-forward role. Sergio Busquets Jersey . With the players association in the midst of meetings in Las Vegas, a vote will be held on Friday to decide the CFLPAs presidency and other executive positions. Custom Spain Jerseys . Barnard, 28, was 1-0 with a 0.53 ERA in three appearances, including two starts, with San Angel o this season. He struck out 19 batters and walked just one in 17 innings pitched. He has previous American Association experience with the Lincoln Saltdogs, El Paso Diablos and Amarillo Sox. . "Hopefully well get all this out of the way," he said, "and everyone will be healthy the rest of the year." Zimmerman was placed on the 15-day disabled list Sunday and is expected to miss between four to six weeks.Craig Perks, Sergio Garcia, Henrik Stenson, Adam Scott, Martin Kaymer and Rickie Fowler all feature as Sky Sports remembers the six best final-round finishes in the history of The Players Championship at TPC Sawgrass. Craig Perks, 2002Craig Perks will always be remembered for the most thrilling final three holes the Players Championship has ever seen, which ended in the only PGA Tour win of his career.Having spent the second and third days near the top of the leaderboard, the fourth day didnt seem to be going the way of the New Zealander. Fifteen holes into his round, Perks had only hit three fairways and on the 15th, his par putt lipped out from a foot to put him one behind the leading group at five under par. A combination of bravery and luck worked in his favour at the long 16th as his ambitious second narrowly missed the water, and Perks rewarded himself by chipping in for a remarkable eagle to take a one-shot lead. He wowed the crowd yet again when he doubled his advantage on the following hole, rolling his slippery 30-foot putt down the slope and into the hole. Craig Perks tips his cap to the gallery having holed his second chip in three holes at the par-four 18th in 2002 Having missed six fairways to the right, Perks opted for the safe option and took out the three-wood on the final hole in a move one commentator described as idiotic, and, sure enough, the Kiwis tee shot veered into the trees and left him with no option but to pitch back to the fairway.His 162-yard third could not hold the green and he faced a tough up and down just to limit the damage to a bogey, but Perks holed from off the green for the second time in two holes and when Tiger Woods presented Perks the trophy, all he could say was: Youre unbelievable. Ways to watch How to keep up to date with the action from Sawgrass across Sky Sports this week... Adam Scott, 2004At the age of 23, Scott became the youngest ever winner of the Players Championship, but without the luxury of a two-shot lead over Padraig Harrington coming down the 72nd hole, it could have been a very different story. Leading after both the first and third rounds, Scott began the day with a two-shot lead at 10 under and looked supremely confident as he stayed at the summit throughout Sunday. Adam Scott dropped his six iron on the final hole as his second shot found the water in 2004 - but he still managed to secure victory The Australian safely negotiated the 17th to remain two clear of Harrington, and he made light of taking on one of the most daunting tee shots in golf at the last and split the fairway.With a six-iron in hand, Scott attempted to punch his second shot towards the right-hand side of the green and looked as surprised as the rest of the gallery to see his ball hook left into the hazard. The engraver had even begun etching his name on to the trophy, but was told to stop immediately after the splash.Now needing to get up and down to avoid extra holes, Scott calmly stepped up to his ball and chipped it to 10 feet. The putt stayed true, and Scott described a feeling of calmness as he saw the ball roll into the middle of the hole. Sergio Garcia, 2008With the biggest victory of his career, Garcias sudden-death play-off victory against Paul Goydos was the accumulation of a final-round putting masterclass. In winds gusting up to 40mph, the Spaniard only needed 28 putts during his composed final-round 71. Posting a near-perfect back nine, Garcia answered his lone blemish at the short 13th hole with a birdie at the next, where he nailed a thrilling 47-foot putt to move just one behind long-time leader Goydos. On the par-three 17th, Garcia left himself an awkward, downhill par putt, but it was the type of clutch putt he needed to keep him in contention. Reflecting on the putt after completing his round, he described it as the longest three feet I have ever seen. Sergio Garcia needed just 28 putts to force a play-off and claim victory over Paul Goydos in 2008 Yet his biggest par save was still to come, and on the final hole Garcia left himself with a testing seven-footer which he knocked in to finish on five under, and Goydos could not emulate the Spaniards battling par at 18 and sent the tournament into the first play-off for 21 years.The pair headed back to the 17th tee and Garcia piled the pressure on the veteran American with a stunning wedge to four feet. Goydos ballooned his tee shot out into the water, and a tap-in par was enough for Garcia to snatch the win and sweep to a career-high second in the world rankings. Henrik Stenson, 2009In the baking heat that caused the greens to become icy fast, Stenson produced what commentator Johnny Miller described as: The best round of Sunday golf I have ever sseen. Diego Costa Spain Jersey. The Swede began the day five shots behind the leading group, but his flawless round of 66 in the hard and fast conditions earned him a four-shot victory by the end of the day. Missing only one fairway during the final round and barely touching his driver, Stenson carded six birdies and 12 pars in a supreme display of ball-striking. With a flawless final round, Henrik Stenson overturned a five-shot deficit to win the tournament by four shots on a difficult final day in 2009 A 15-foot birdie putt from the edge of the seventh green lifted him into a share of the lead with Ian Poulter, Ben Crane and Retief Goosen, and he would take the outright lead just two holes later. Stenson hit driver only once all day at the long 11th, where he bunkered his second before splashing out to four feet and holing the chance for birdie, and a three-wood and a mid-iron to the heart of the 16th green set up another gain which took him four clear of a fading Poulter.I could afford to go bogey-bogey and still win it, said Stenson, after wrapping up the second PGA Tour title of his career. Thats always a handy situation to be in.Martin Kaymer, 2014A long rain delay and some uncertain shot-making down the stretch on Sunday looked to have scuppered Kaymers chances of victory, but one remarkable putt at the 17th enabled the former world No 1 to hang on in a thrilling finale in fading light.The German had momentum on his side when he got up and down for birdies at the ninth and 11th, but play was suspended due to approaching thunder and lightning storms with Kaymer leading by three strokes with four holes remaining. Martin Kaymer held a three-shot lead when play was suspended in 2014, and instantly dropped two shots when he returned Following the lengthy hold-up, Kaymer drove into the pines at the 15th and ran up a double-bogey, and his curious decision to use a putter from several yards off the 16th green backfired as he settled for a disappointing par.Kaymer took the safe line at 17 and his ball cleared the water, only to spin back sharply and came to rest in the fringe just a couple of feet from the hazard, and his woeful chip left him staring at a 30-foot putt for par.But the US Open champion curled home the monster putt to stay one clear of the field and, needing lights from the clubhouse and the scoreboards on the 18th green, Kaymer managed once more to get up and down for par to pip Jim Furyk to the title. Fowler to bounce back Rich Beem expects Rickie Fowler to recover from his Wells Fargo near-miss and challenge at Sawgrass Rickie Fowler, 2015Standing on the 13th tee on the final day, Fowler was six shots off the leading group, but what followed was an end that will go down in history as one of the best finishes the tournament has ever seen.The young American knew he had to do something special, and he ignited his astonishing charge with a 10-foot putt for birdie at 13 and his par at the next proved to be his worst score for the remainder of the round. Rickie Fowler finished birdie, par, birdie, eagle, birdie, birdie to force a play-off against Kevin Kisner and Sergio Garcia last year Fowler, determined to silence the doubters after being labelled as one of the most overrated players on the PGA Tour at the start of the week, followed a birdie at 15 with a stunning second to a couple of feet at the 16th which set up an eagle. Now trailing by only one, Fowlers nerveless wedge to 17 pitched eight feet from the pin and rolled even closer, and he picked up his fifth shot in as many holes when his putt found the left side of the cup.Fowler managed the second-longest tee shot of the day at 331 yards on the final hole and found the middle of the green with his approach, and his red-hot putter struck again as the birdie putt dropped to give him the clubhouse lead on 12 under - a target later matched by Kevin Kisner and Sergio Garcia.The Spaniard was eliminated after the subsequent three-hole play-off - the first in the tournaments history - and Fowler then hit another near-perfect wedge to the 17th for the third time on Sunday to pip Kisner to the title.
