With Kylian Mbappé scoring a thrilling hat trick at the Camp Nou, Erling Haaland lighting up Sevilla and Manchester City taking a 10-point lead in the Premier League title race, it's been another headline week in European football.

More drama awaits in the week ahead, not only in the Champions League, but in the Premier League and Serie A as well. Here's what you need to know.

Chelsea vs. Manchester United

Saturday February 27 at TBD | Live stream

Chelsea has been reinvigorated under Tuchel and will continue to fight with Liverpool and surprisingly West Ham for a spot in the top four. Can they destroy Manchester United's slim chances of contending for the title with a key win this weekend?

Leicester City vs. Arsenal

Saturday February 27 at TBD | Live stream

Jamie Vardy and Leicester City were coming off its biggest win of the season, a 3-1 victory over Liverpool where it notched all of its goals in a furious 12-minute span, and followed up with a 2-1 win over Aston Villa on Feb. 21. Winning the title is unrealistic but beating Arsenal, who no longer look or play like a prestige club anymore, is one key step further to securing a guaranteed Champions League spot for next season.

Roma vs. Milan

Sunday February 28 at 9:00 a.m. ET | Live stream

Inter and AC Milan have battled for the Serie A title all season, as Juventus looks increasingly unlikely to capture a ninth consecutive victory. Roma has been quietly overlooked, but after being held to a scoreless draw by Benevento, it now lies nine points back of Inter, and trailing AC Milan by five. This showdown could swing the balance of the most thrilling race in years.

Atletico Madrid vs. Chelsea

Tuesday February 23 at 3:00 p.m. ET | Live stream

Barcelona's board decided it wanted nothing to do with Luis Suarez after the 2020 campaign - a decision that rendered Lionel Messi apoplectic, while noting Suarez's stature in club history. A vengeful Suarez has been Atleti's gain as he's tied for the La Liga scoring lead with Messi with 16 goals, while the team sits atop the table, three points up on Real Madrid. Portuguese phenom Joao Felix has notched three goals in the Champions League already, Marcos Llorente has thrived as an advanced midfielder and second striker, while Jan Oblak remains one of the world's best goalkeepers. Atleti's trademark resolute defense has been stellar again in 2021 and this may be their best shot at winning the Champions League for the first time.

Chelsea fans were growing impatient with Frank Lampard when the best midfielder in club history was fired as manager on Jan. 25. Former PSG manager Thomas Tuchel was appointed and Chelsea has responded with a run of four wins sandwiched by two draws in the Premier League, including a crucial 1-0 win against Tottenham on Feb. 4. Assuming that Chelsea operates with Olivier Giroud as the target man, with Timo Werner and Mason Mount in support, the Blues have enough firepower to counter an Atleti squad that rarely concedes.

Lazio vs. Bayern Munich

Tuesday February 23 at 3:00 p.m. ET | Live stream

If we're going to nitpick, Bayern has developed a bad habit recently of playing down to its opponent.

Canadian star left back Alphonso Davies had to rescue a Bundesliga point against Arminia Bielefeld with his first goal of the season, a beautiful left-footed volley, for a 3-3 draw on Feb. 15, while the club lost 2-1 to Eintracht Frankfurt on Feb. 20. The defending champions otherwise remain at the height of their powers, however, as Robert Lewandowski has an astonishing 25 goals in league play, while Thomas Muller's all-around brilliance (10 goals, 10 assists in Bundesliga) continues to propel the star-studded unit. Simply, Bayern could deploy much of its second unit and walk away comfortably.

Lazio finished second in Group F behind Dortmund, going unbeaten in six games and it shouldn't be taken lightly, but there is a major gulf in talent here. Although they won't be content to merely concede possession, Lazio will likely be forced to counter attack and make the best of their chances, with Ciro Immobile being relied upon heavily in the designated two-striker system.

Atalanta vs. Real Madrid

Wednesday February 24 at 3:00 p.m. ET | Live stream

Led by forward Josip Ilicic, Atalanta has been one of the most exciting stories in world football for the past few years, and they are no longer a mid-tier Serie A club without serious ambitions. Knocking off global giant Real Madrid would be their next step in breaking further into the mainstream, an admittedly tough task as Zinedine Zidane's men have far too much experience, depth and talent to be caught off guard in the Round of 16.

Borussia Monchengladbach vs. Manchester City

Wednesday February 24 at 3:00 p.m. ET | Live stream

Borussia Monchengladbach are in for a tough challenge against Manchester City, having fallen out of form recently but that may also obscure the larger picture. Monchengladbach recorded key Bundesliga wins against Bayern (3-2, Jan. 8) and Dortmund (4-2, Jan. 22) proving that it is more than capable of holding its own against a world-class opponent.

Manchester City has been scoring at will, with Phil Foden and Ilkay Gundogan playing the best football of their careers, and can simply get goals from almost anywhere on the pitch. This should be an easy matchup for the Citizens.
