A win for either side would see them through to the last 16, so there’s plenty at stake. Roma have won their last seven home games in the Champions League, against teams including Chelsea, Barcelona and Liverpool. Real lost 3-0 at Eibar on Saturday but won their four previous games and comfortably beat Roma in September. I’ll go for a Draw.
Match Tip: Both Teams to Score (Odds: 1.40)
Mr. Predictor’s Verdict: AS Roma 1 v 1 Real Madrid
Lyon know three points would see them through here, but it’s no easy task. Both sides have scored in all four of the group games so far, three of which have been draws, and City look really strong. They’re on an eight game winning streak in all competitions and, even though they lost 2-1 to Lyon on Matchday One, I expect an Away Win this time.
Match Tip: Both Teams to Score and Over 2.5 Goals (Odds: 1.75)
Mr. Predictor’s Verdict: Lyon 1 v 3 Manchester City
Thierry Henry finally has his first win as Monaco manager after a 1-0 victory at Caen on Saturday. However, his side are already certain to finish bottom of their group and have lost two three of their four games so far. Atletico drew 1-1 with Barcelona on Saturday and, since they’ve won on the -1 handicap in their last three home games in Europe, I’m backing the same here.
Match Tip: Atletico Win with -1 Handicap (Odds: 1.60)
Mr. Predictor’s Verdict: Atletico Madrid 3 v 1 AS Monaco
What a game we have in store here! PSG continued their 100% record in Ligue 1 last weekend, but they’re struggling in Europe. They will be eliminated should they lose here and Napoli win, and anything but a win would put them in trouble. That said, they’ve only won one of their last seven in the Champions League. Liverpool have lost their last three away matches in the Champions League, so things aren’t promising for them either. I see a Draw here, with plenty of goals.
Match Tip: Both Teams to Score and Over 2.5 Goals (Odds: 1.65)
Mr. Predictor’s Verdict: PSG 2 v 2 Liverpool
I’ve been really impressed by Tottenham. They’ve now won five games in a row and looked really good against Chelsea. The mission is clear here: win or they’re out. Inter Milan only need a point to go through to the last 16, and they’ve won seven of their last ten games in all competitions. I just think that Spurs are hitting form now, so I think this will be a Home Win.
Match Tip: Both Teams to Score (Odds: 1.60)
Mr. Predictor’s Verdict: Tottenham 2 v 1 Inter Milan
