Champions League Predictions – Tuesday

Real Madrid V Liverpool

Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool have been in a nightmare of a season this term. Giving the Reds a 35% chance of winning the game may look pretty generous, but never underrate Liverpool in the UCL. Big spender Real Madrid face familiar foe Liverpool, in a game that will definitely bring back memories of their 2018 Champions League final; a game where Salah was substituted after getting knocked down by Sergio Ramos, Karius made some terrible blunders, and Gareth Bale stole the show with two goals. But this time the dynamics are different. Real Madrid have  48.9% chance of winning this. Zinedine Zidane’s team have found their rhythm in recent months and are now winning games.

Man City V Dortmund

Guardiola’s side will be pressing for their fantasy quadruple as they welcome Erling Haaland, Sancho and the rest of team Dortmund to the Etihad. Man City is unarguably the best team in Europe this season. Thy’veonly dropped points once in  15 games. They are on top of the premier league, in the finals of the EFL Cup, in the semifinals of the FA CUP. We predict a 68.5 % chance for City to win this. Dortmund have not fared badly; but what has made headlines is the form of Erling Haaland. The Norweigian has averaged a goal in every game. Haaland has a good chance of scoring, so you could consider Dortmund scoring anytime at 64.5%; while Dortmund has a 36.4% to win or draw the game.

Bayern V PSG

Many have said the winner of this tie, will go on to win the UEFA Champions league 2021. Both sides have some of the best players in the world in every sense, both goalscoring, contribution to the team, and skills. This is going to be a tight one, as both teams are counter attacking sides with players who can puns oppositions. We are giving Bayern a 48% chance of winning this, while Dortmund have a 29% chance of winning. With players like Lewandowski, Neymar, Muller, and Mbappe on the field, you could also fancy both teams scoring, which has a 48% chance of happening.

Porto V Chelsea

FC Porto pulled off one of the big kills this season – qualifying ahead of a Juventus team fielding Ronaldo. Players like Pepe and Corona Jesus are the backbone of this team. On the surface, they don’t look badass and exciting , but they sure know how to persevere an grind down any attacking side. More like a  Mourinho kind of team. They have a 21% chance of beating Chelsea.  The side from England is the likely favourite. Tucel’s side are unbeaten since the German arrived in West London. Chelsea have a 54.9% chance to win this. Chelsea have been a defensive masterclass since Tuchel came in. You could fancy Chelsea to keep a clean sheet which has a 44% chance of happening.

Europa League Predictions

Arsenal V Slavia Prague

The Gunners have the advantage in this fixture. Arsenal have never lost to a club from the Czech republic. The last time both clubs met was in the Champions League 2007/08 when Arsenal triumphed 7-0, the biggest European home for Arsenal and the heaviest continental defeat for Slavia. But today, Slavia sit on top of the Czech league, while Arsenal is 9th in the premier league, and for a moment it seems Slavia have an advantage. However, Arsenal being the stronger side in terms of opposition they have faced and the quality of the EPL, have over 65% chance of winning the match, while Slavia has a 15% chance of winning. Since it’s a two legged tie, Slavia would fancy a draw at 22%. To be safe, we recommend you go for under 3.5 goals. We don’t see 4 goals being scored in the first leg, and our prediction on this is 75% likely.

Granada V Man United

The Red Devils head into this one as overwhelming favourites. This shouldn’t be hard for them after seeing off Italian giants AC Milan in the second round. The enormity of Granada’s task is evident in the 17% chance they have of beating the Red Devils. It’s going to be a difficult one for coach Diego Martinez and his boys to even score at 58%. Granada is not also doing well in La Liga as they sit in 8th position in the league. United have a 60% chance of winning this easily.

Ajax V Roma

Dutch side Ajax will face Italian giants AS Roma in Amsterdam. The game will see Ajax who sit on top of the Dutch Eredivisie with 4 wins from their last 5. They’ve dominated the Dutch league for years and even got to the semifinals in the 2019 champions league. Ajax have a  47% of winning the tie, Despite the heroics of Ajax,  Roma is still a worthy opponent. Despite the fact that they are 6th in the Serie A, the overall difficulty of the Serie A, means that Roma plays tougher opponents. The team from Rome has a 29.4 % chance of winning this.

Dinamo Zagreb V Villareal

This game pits two teams who are closely matched. Villareral with some excellent players like our own Chukwueze and Santi Cazorla are always a threat. But Dinamo Zagreb are no pushovers. They have won all their last 5 games and sit atop the Croatian league. We are giving them a 30% chance to win the game at home. Villareal as favourites have a 44% chance to win it.
