Teams like Chelsea, Barcelona, Liverpool Juventus have all but sealed qualification with nothing but pride to play for. On the other hand, some of Europe big guns such as Manchester united, Real Madrid, Ajax are still in the danger of missing out on the round of 16.
Having said that, I’ll be dropping my predictions on how some of the matches could pan out this week… Stay tuned
Bayern munich vs Locomotiv Moscow
Bayern munich are expected field a strong side when they take on Locomotiv Moscow on Wednesday despite the home side having qualified already.
The Germans should easily dispatch the Russians with relative ease.
My predictions: Bayern munich 4 vs 0 Locomotiv Moscow
Salzburg vs Atletico Madrid
Salzburg play host to Atletico Madrid in a must win match for the home side if they are to qualify from group A. On the other hand Diego Simeone’s men just need a draw to seal a second spot just behind Bayern munich on the group A.
My predictions : Salzburg 1 vs 1 Atletico Madrid
Inter Milan vs Shaktar Doneskt
Qualification into the round of 16 from Group B is set to go down to the wire with all four teams still in the running for qualication.
Inter Milan who are currently last in that group welcome Ukrainian side Shaktar Doneskt in a must win match for both sides who would want to avoid dropping down to the Europa league
My predictions : Inter Milan 2 vs 1 Shaktar Doneskt
Real Madrid vs Borussia Moncheglabach
Zinedine Zidane’s men will be boosted by the timely return of captain Sergio Ramos to the team with the Spanish club in need of all the help they can get when they play group B table toppers Borussia Moncheglabach on Wednesday.
The away side only need to muster a draw inorder to qualify from the group and will be hoping to repeat their performance in the first leg performance against the Spanish league champions on Wednesday.
My predictions: Real Madrid 2 vs 1 Borussia Moncheglabach
Manchester city vs Marseille
With qualification already sealed, Pep Guardiola would have the opportunity of giving his key players a much needed rest ahead of the busy festive schedule.
However, the citizens are still expected to do justice to Marseille when these two teams meet at the Etihad stadium on Wednesday
My predictions: Manchester city 3 vs 0 Marseille
Ajax vs Atlanta
One of the most anticipated matches of this week’s champions league game also sees Ajax take on Atlanta in a do-or-die affair with champions league qualification to the knockout rounds at stake.
This one would go down to the wire
My predictions : Ajax 2 vs 2 Atlanta
Midjtylland vs Liverpool
Danish side are already out of the the champions league this season, but would be presented with the opportunity of leaving on a high when they play Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool on Wednesday.
Liverpool are expected to field their second team, but should still have enough fire power to see off the home side.
My predictions : Midjtylland 0 vs 2 Liverpool
Chelsea vs Krasnodar
An in-form Chelsea host Russian side Krasnodar at Stamford bridge on Tuesday. Going by the Russians first leg demolition at the hands of the blues, this might be a very very long night for Krasnodar who are only looking for a draw to book their place in the Europa league.
My predictions: Chelsea 4 vs 0 Krasnodar
Rennes vs Sevilla
Sevilla needs to get back their confidence after a disastrous week saw them lose two consecutive games to Real Madrid and Chelsea.
Rennes on the other hand will be playing for pride with the Ligue 1 side already out of the running for qualification from the group.
My predictions: Rennes 0 vs 2 Sevilla
Lazio vs Club Brugge
Second placed Lazio are at home to third placed Club brugge when they meet for the second time this season with a loss for either sides signaling a drop to the Uefa Europa league.
My predictions: Lazio 3 vs 2 Club Brugge
Zenith vs Borussia Dortmund
Dortmund would be on a tough quest to seal top spot qualification from group F.
Dortmund will be missing as many as eight key players in that match, and will need certain players in top form if they are to leave Russia with a win
My predictions: Zenith st Petersburg 1 vs 1 Dortmund
Barcelona vs Juventus
All eyes will be on Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo when they their teams face off once more in the final UCL group game for both sides this season.
With both sides already qualified, these teams will just be playing for bragging rights
My predictions : Barcelona 3 vs 2 Juventus
Rb Leipzig vs Manchester united
Last week’s loss to Paris Saint German meant Manchester united would need at least a point in their final game to book a round of 16 spot.
However, they face a stern test in the form of Rb Leipzig who are also level on point with the English side and need a win to qualify from the tough Group. This promises to be an entertaining game
My predictions: Leipzig 1 vs 3 Manchester united
PSG vs Istanbul Basakeshir
PSG would look to do the double over their UCL group stage counter parts Istanbul Basakeshir when they face eachother on Tuesday evening.
PSG needs a win from this game if they are to stand any chances of topping this Group while Istanbul Basakeshir are already down and out in terms of qualification from the group.
This might be a very long night for the Turkish side.
My predictions: PSG 4 vs 0 Istanbul Basakeshir
