The UEFA Champions League group stage passed the midpoint, and from now on, every point is worth gold, and the margin for error is way too small. For some, there isn’t any room for that, otherwise, they won’t fulfill their goals.
Over the upcoming few lines, we will cover a few games and offer our pick for the same. Feel free to read and listen to our advice on this matter because we did well in the past.
Rangers VS Liverpool
The Reds have been knocked out in London against Arsenal, allowing three goals and losing another derby. For Jurgen Klopp, this has been the most stressful stretch since arriving at Anfield, and we are yet to see how the German head coach addresses the current situation.
Liverpool plays efficient football, and only two in the past nine games haven’t been with three or more goals, and during that sting, the Reds couldn’t protect their net on six occasions. The Gers have eight contests with over 2.5 goals in the same period, and they, too, have been inconsistent.
The situation here forces us to bet on Liverpool’s win, because the Rangers don’t have the ability to use the guests’ poor shape, as they lack individual quality to compete with one of the top Premiership units.
Pick: Liverpool 1/3 at BetXchange
Barcelona VS Inter
The Italians won last week solely due to the officials, who didn’t award a penalty for Blaugrana in the ultimate moments of the clash. Barca was much better in the second half but couldn’t breach the rival’s defense, and when they did, VAR intervened, and the goal was canceled.
Nerazzurri are very bad on the road, having three wins and three defeats this year, with all but one game ending over 2.5 goals and both teams netting. Barca is ruthless at home, riding a four-game winning streak during which they conceded once.
We have to side with Barca, who looks very good at Camp Nou. Inter showed a lot of flaws, especially in the back line, and to be honest, we expect to see Xavi’s unit exploiting them in the best possible way.
Pick: Barcelona -250 at BetXchange
PSG VS Benfica
Lionel Messi picked up a tough injury in Lisbon, and the hosts are keen on punishing the Eagles for that. The Argentinian will be absent for a while, which disrupts the Saints’ plans, and it seems that Mbappe and Neymar have a huge motive to beat the Portuguese unit.
Both teams play well, and are without a loss for more than a dozen consecutive events. However, seeing that PSG has a home-field edge and a massive motive to beat the rivals who took one point in the first leg, we expect to see the French champs dominant at Par des Princes on Tuesday night.
Pick: PSG 1/2 at BetXchange
AC Milan VS Chelsea
The Blues won the previous event 3-0, and now come to Milan without any pressure. We expect them to be cautious, but against Rossoneri, who usually drag the rivals in an open exchange, especially at home where they play offensive football, Chelsea will have trouble.
Milan has five wins and a loss at home, scoring two goals in each of the triumphs. We expect them to net at least once against the Blues, but on the other side, the English unit should score as well, because Milan’s backline isn’t too strong, posting only two clean sheets at San Siro.
Pick: Both teams to score 4/5 at BetXchange
FC Copenhagen VS Man City
With or without Haaland, the Citizens will win this one, and continue their rampage. The best pick for the game at Parken is City -1.5, as hosts simply aren’t capable of displaying any stronger defiance against the English champs.
Pick: Man City -1.5 2/5 at BetXchange
