The UEFA champions League games are continuing today with teams entering home stretch in attempts to qualify for the round of 16. Here we look at how various games are likely to end considering the group’s standing, individual team’s form and the past head to head meetings.
Galatasaray vs Manchester United Prediction
All eyes will be on the Erik Ten Hag’s men as they meet with Galatasaray SK from Turkey. In the las leg, Galatasaray SK got lucky to take three points after beating ten men Manchester United 4-3 goals. Form wise, the two seem to be equal as they have both won 3 of their last six matches and lost three. However, Manchester United have won their last two matches something which can give them a much needed motivation to win this.
A win for either of them will take the team to second position provided Bayern Munich also win over Copenhagen. Manchester United will have 6 points should they win while Galatasaray SK will go to 7 points. This makes this match a hard one to imagine a winner.
From these analysis, it is safer to bet on Over 2.5 goals but for a straight win, give it to Manchester United.
Real Madrid vs Napoli prediction
Real Madrid goes into the game as a favorite to win but Napoli will be determined to secure a win which will take them to ten points, just two less than group leaders Real Madrid. Madrid are quite on form as they have won 5 out of their last six games drawing just one while Napoli have been somehow struggling to be on their best, winning only 3, drawing 2 and losing 1 of their last six matches.
Considering that Real Madrid have so far qualified for the round of 16, they might not take the game quite serious by coming with a weaker squad. This makes direct win a bit hard to decide going also by the fact that Madrid have won all their last three meetings with Napoli.
Safer way to bet will be Both Teams to score, over 2.5 goals. One can also risk it by giving Napoli Win.
Sevilla vs PSV Eindhoven prediction
Struggling Sevilla will be meeting in-form PSV Eindhoven in a match that will mean a lot to PSV as they might go second with 8 points as long as Arsenal keeps lead over Lens. Sevilla has had the worst season so far and their chances of going to the next round now is below 40%.
PSV Eindhoven will Win over Sevilla.
Arsenal vs Lens prediction
After surprising Arsenal with a win at their home ground, RC Lens will have to prove that they deserved the win when they meet with Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium. Arsenal are going there as the favorite to win going by their current form.
SL Benfica vs Inter Milano prediction
Benfica are pointless in group D and their chances of going forward is so narrow. Inter on the other hand goes into this game with the hope of taking advantage over Benfica’s poor form in the Champions League. A win for the Italians will make them be sure of going to round of 16 as they will have 13 points and in case Real Sociedad loses to RB Salzburg, Inter will lead the group.
Coupled with their recent form and hopes of going top of group D, Inter will win the match.
Bayern Munchen vs Copenhagen
German champions will try to make it a winning streak when they meet their unworthy competitors who are sitting second behind them with only 4 points. Copenhagen took advantage of Manchester United’s poor form and won their match against them in the second leg. They currently sit first in the Denmark league but that is nothing compared to Bayern occupying same spot in Germany. Even if Bayern are already qualified, it will be a miracle to lose to Copenhagen. Bayern will win with over 3.5 goals scored in the match.
Sporting Braga vs Union Berlin
Sporting Braga will want to try their luck and keep hopes of still having a chance to go to the next round. Union Berlin on the other hand are in seriously bad form and it will take them a lot of efforts to subdue Braga. Braga has won two of the three last meetings and their current form is another reason to believe they will beat Union Berlin.
