Tottenham vs Olympiacos

Tottenham have been able to put their embarrassing 7-2 defeat to Bayern Munich behind them with big consecutive wins over Red Star Belgrade, winning the home tie 5-0, before going to Belgrade and beating the Serbian outfit 4-0. They come into this match against Olympiakos with Jose Mourinho at the helm and they’ll know a win here would be enough to see them qualify for the knockout stages.

Spurs have scored 13 goals in their four games in the Champions League but that huge defeat against Bayern leaves them with nine goals against. They’ve certainly turned things around, though, and they’ll still be riding the wave of confidence a new manager brings after Mourinho’s appointment last week. With an average of over three goals a game so far, they’ll be confident of another big result this week.

Olympiakos haven’t enjoyed their Champions League campaign so far, with just a single point earned by the Greek side, following their 2-2 draw with Spurs in the reverse fixture. Since then, they’ve lost twice to Bayern Munich and once to Red Star Belgrade, conceding eight goals in the process. Things haven’t gone well for Olympiakos and it’s hard to see them getting anything from this game.

With that in mind, we think Tottenham are in line for a big result and we’re predicting them to beat the 2.5 goal line by themselves. They’ve been scoring for fun in Europe and this should continue with them looking very good in the final third against West Ham at the weekend, during Mourinho’s first game in charge.

Prediction: 1 & O 1.5

Real Madrid vs PSG

Real Madrid comes into this game knowing a win will be enough to secure qualification to the knockout stages once again. That is not a formality, with PSG looking in fantastic form in the Champions League this season, and the Spaniards will have to work hard to claim a result. Madrid has found things a little difficult so far this season and this could be a trend that continues into MD5.

A 6-0 win over Galatasaray would’ve given the side some confidence again. But, prior to that, disappointing results against both PSG and Club Brugge put head coach Zinedine Zidane under considerable pressure. This has been relieved somewhat since but Madrid will need to pick up where they left off against a PSG side that has excelled so far this term.

PSG have a perfect record to protect, winning four games from four, scoring 10 goals and conceding none while romping to qualification from Group A with two games to spare. The wealth of talent available to them has been clear to see but their ability in the final third has separated them from everyone else so far. This is evidenced by the side’s 21 shots on target in four games and conversion rate of just under 50%.

There is so much attacking talent on display for both teams that it’s hard to see anything other than goals in this game. We’re backing a goal fest with the 3.5 goal line being beaten. With teams expected to feature Karim Benzema, Rodrygo, Mauro Icardi and Kylian Mbappe, there should be plenty of chances at either end.

Prediction: 12 & O 1.5

Atalanta vs Dynamo Zagreb

The Serie A side have seen their campaign stall in recent weeks, with major problems both at home and in Europe. Atalanta have won once in their last eight games, while they come into this game winless in seven. They lost 3-1 against Juventus at the weekend, shipping three goals in the final 16 minutes. That could cost them again here, as Dinamo have scored three in the last 15 minutes across their last two in Europe – drawing 2-2 and 3-3 with Shakhtar Donetsk.

While Atalanta’s historic Champions League campaign has been a dud, this has been a great season for the visitors. Dinamo Zagreb have scored nine goals in their four Uefa Champions League games this season (W1 D2 L1), two more than they managed in 24 games in their previous four campaigns (seven goals in 2011/12, 2012/13, 2015/16 and 2016/17). That form has left them in the mix to make the top two.

Clinical finishing has helped the Croatian side into that position. Dinamo Zagreb have taken the joint-fewest shots of any team in the Champions League this season (36, joint with Galatasaray); however, they have the best conversion rate of any side, scoring with nine of those 36 shots (25%). That’s bad news for Atalanta, who head into this clash with a dreadful record at the back. In their four games, they’ve conceded over 12 shots per game, with 24% of those converted into goals.

Prediction: H wins

Juventus vs Atletico Madrid

Juventus can wrap up first place in their Champions League group on Tuesday. The Italian champions are on a great run, while they come into this one looking to punish an Atlético Madrid side winless in their previous five away trips.

Juventus have won 14 and lost one of their last 23 Champions League group games on home soil (D8). The Old Lady are looking to win four consecutive home group games for the first time since October 2008. Their form this season has also been brilliant, with 12 wins in their last 13 matches. Having scored twice in all four group games this term, they look likely to achieve a result.

History doesn’t seem to favour the visitors in this clash. Atlético Madrid have registered just three wins in their 10 previous encounters with Juventus in all competitions (W3 D2 L5), with four of those five defeats coming in the Inter-Cities Fairs Cup and the other arriving in the Champions League (0-3 in March 2019). They’re yet to really click in this competition following their summer rebuild, so this trip could be a struggle.

Meanwhile, Juventus have shown real progression as a team, building a side who can share out the goals. That’s clearly a key part of Maurizio Sarri’s plan, as the Italian boss was reportedly unhappy with Chelsea’s reliance on Eden Hazard last term. His new side have had eight different scorers in this season’s Champions League – already twice as many as they had last season when they reached the quarter-final.

Of course, the Italian champions still have an obvious leading man who tends to hurt Atlético. Juventus’ Cristiano Ronaldo has scored 25 goals versus Atlético Madrid in all competitions – only versus Sevilla (27) has he netted more. The Portuguese forward has bagged four hat-tricks against Atlético, with two of those arriving in the Champions League (March 2019 & May 2017).

Prediction: 1X

Red Star Belgrade vs Bayern Munich

In the past couple of years, Red Star Belgrade have carved themselves out a reputation as a difficult side to beat. But they haven’t been able to bring this into their Champions League campaign this season, with resounding defeats to both Bayern Munich and Tottenham in Group A. Indeed, they’ve conceded 13 goals, the most of any team in the competition this season.

Bayern Munich have performed exactly as expected, with four wins from four and 15 goals scored in those games, an average of 3.75 per game. The 7-2 victory over Tottenham was definitely the high point, with the Germans dismantling their opponents and putting themselves in a position where they have qualified for the round of 16 with two games to spare.

The reverse fixture saw Bayern Munich run out 3-0 winners and there isn’t much that has happened in the interim which indicates a similar result isn’t on the cards here. Bayern look full of confidence, having only conceded four goals in the campaign, and will be seeking another win to keep their momentum going before they welcome Tottenham to the Allianz Arena in two weeks’ time.

Prediction: O 2.5

Man City vs Shakhter Donetsk

Manchester City hasn’t quite assured themselves of qualification from Group C but a point here will be enough for them to book their place in the knockout stages. They were enjoying a perfect campaign until their last European fixture, when they had a bit of a meltdown, drawing 1-1 against Atalanta and finishing the game with defender, Kyle Walker, in goal after a red card for Claudio Bravo.

This season, however, we’ve seen Man City respond well to a poor result and that could well be the case here as they look to take the pressure off their last game in the group. They come up against a good Shakhtar side, though, and it might not be the run-of-the-mill victory Man City fans have become accustomed to.

Shakhtar Donetsk currently sit second in the group and know they need to keep picking up results. Dinamo Zagreb also have five points and are only kept in third due to the three goals Shakhtar scored in their last game. But getting a result from the Premier League champions is no easy task and Shakhtar will need to be in peak form to challenge City.

Prediction: 1 & O 1.5

Galatasaray vs Club Brugge

Galatasaray have endured an awful Champions League campaign, only picking up a single point and failing to score a goal. This was compounded by a 6-0 drubbing against Real Madrid three weeks ago, which eliminated them from the competition. The side have managed just six shots on target in their four games so far this season, looking second best against every team they’ve come up against.

Injuries haven’t helped them, with main striker Radamel Falcao missing part of the campaign, but the fans are still bitterly disappointed with the state of their European challenge and there are increasing calls for head coach Fatih Terim to be relieved of his duties. For now, though, he remains in charge and leads his side into what looks to be the game that decides which of these two teams will finish third and qualify for the Europa League.

Club Brugge haven’t fared much better in a tough group but a creditable 2-2 draw against Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu has at least given them some cause for celebration. They’ve averaged two shots on target per game, not much of an improvement on Galatasaray, but hold a small advantage over their opponents coming into the encounter.

A draw would suit Club Brugge in this game, as it would mean Galatasaray have to claim a victory at Parc de Princes to finish third in the group; they could well look to keep things tight knowing Galatasaray have struggled in front of goal this season.

Prediction: 1-3 G A

Lokomotive Moscow vs Bayern Leverkusen

Both sides can still technically qualify for the Champions League knockout stages but it looks very unlikely. There is still plenty on the line here, though, with the winner being the most likely team to qualify for the last 32 of the Europa League. Lokomotiv Moscow currently holds the advantage, with a single goal scored being the difference between the two sides at this point.

Lokomotiv Moscow’s opening-day win over Bayer Leverkusen in the reverse fixture is what separates the two sides at the moment. But since then the Russians haven’t enjoyed a successful campaign, with two losses against Juventus and a 2-0 defeat at home to Atletico. They’ve averaged four shots on target in that time but only scored twice in what has been a disappointing run.

The fortunes of Bayer Leverkusen have been the opposite of their opponents this week, with three defeats in a row being ended with a victory over Atletico last time out, keeping them in contention for qualification. Their conversion rate has been fairly average, scoring one in every three shots on target, but they’ll need to be a little more clinical in the final third to find the win in a tough game in the Russian capital.

Prediction: O 1.5
