Besiktas vs. Sporting
Time: Tuesday, 5:45 p.m. GMT+1
Both teams will be desperate to come out on top, since neither team has picked up a point from games against Ajax and Borussia Dortmund. Either team pose a threat in the final third and are capable of causing each other some serious defensive problems. So this game should end in a draw with lots of goals.
Club Brugge vs. Manchester City: Time: Tuesday, 5:45 p.m. GMT+1
Club Brugge has claimed 4 points out 6 in this current campaign, with an impressive play vs PSG, following by a crucial win vs Leipzig, the belgian side won’t totally be a walkover opponent for Manchester City, but then Manchester City players are well known for their ruthlessness in front of goal. Manchester city should win but it won’t be as easy as many think.
Shakhtar Donetsk vs. Real Madrid; Time: Tuesday, 8 p.m. GMT+1
The Shakhtar Donetsk side are actually very capable of picking up a good result from this game, if they actually play their cards well, but then Real Madrid’s quality should outshine whatever the ukrainian are planning. It’s not going to be an easy win, a draw is a big possibility.
PSG vs. RB Leipzig; Time: Tuesday, 8 p.m. GMT+1
Everyone undoubtedly will be looking forward to this game, hoping to see Lionel Messi do another magic he displayed against Manchester City last game week. The French side looks really desperate to show the world that their star-packed team can be ruthless and dangerous, so they’ll throw in everything they’ve got in today’s game. Leipzig are up to something, they need this win to stay or at least have a shot at the top position on that group table. It won’t be an easy game, but Paris Saint-Germain are expected to win with a good goal margin.
Atletico Madrid vs. Liverpool; Time: Tuesday, 8 p.m. GMT+1
Liverpool’s deadly attacking trident are expected to continue their impressive form vs Atletico Madrid irrespective of how tight their Host’s defense can be. The game is going to be of high intensity and Diego Simeone is known to be able to take the highlights of games like this. A draw is the most suitable option here, but if there’s going to be a win, it should be in favour of the English team.
Inter Milan vs. Sheriff; Time: Tuesday, 8 p.m. GMT+1
Sheriffs have been outstanding in the competition this season but might come up just short in this match. Inter will be desperate to get their Champions League campaign up and running following two disappointing results, and the Italian champions will stake their claim with a win. Inter Milan have the home advantage and should win today’s game
Ajax vs. Borussia Dortmund; Time: Tuesday, 8 p.m. GMT+1
Ajax has the home advantage together with an abundance of attacking options and this could help shift the game in their favour. Dortmund certainly pose a threat of their own on the break, but may be caught out when pushing forward and can be picked off in wide areas by the hosts. A draw might be the end of this hopefully thrilling game ahead.
Porto vs. AC Milan; Time: Tuesday, 8 p.m. GMT+1
Porto were blown away by Liverpool 5-1 last time out, expect an injury-hit Rossoneri – on a high from their dramatic win over Verona – to do enough to come away with a point from the Estadio do Dragao. Tipping the visitor to a hard-fought win.
