Champions League Acca: 25th & 26th February

It is fair to say that I would like to consign last week’s tips for the Champions League into the recycle bin and forget about them! I can’t remember the last team I drew a blank, but I did last week. Still, that makes me all the more determined to get the job done this week with this new set of tips.

In fairness, I think last week’s results were a little anomalous. Son’s injury became news after I had already written the article and with Liverpool going down to only their second defeat (if you discount the second-string Aston Villa Carabao Cup quarterfinal) of the season, plus Valencia’s extremely poor showing, we had a fair few ‘unusual’ things happening last week.

This week though I think things are a bit simpler in a couple of the matches but equally tricky in others. Both British teams playing this week, Chelsea and Manchester City face very tough games while the other two matches put potential winners of this tournament Barcelona and Juventus, away to tricky opposition.

The good news with that is that this does impact the odds, which means if we can land this bet,we should pick up a very sizeable profit! Here’s my tips for this week.

Bet Analysis: Tuesday 25th February

Chelsea v Bayern Munich – Away Win

What can you make of Chelsea? Well, at one stage they looked a shoe-in for a place in the top four and even were up with City and Liverpool earlier on in the season, but their form of late, especially at home, has been extremely inconsistent and with injuries to key players, most notably their strikers, has left them looking a little toothless in attack. Bayern have happy memories of their last trip to London, when they mauled Tottenham 7-2 in the Group Stages and while I can’t see the German side achieving a scoreline like that, I do fear that Chelsea’s problems in defence that have dogged them all season, and a lack of bite in attack means that I fancy Bayern to earn a narrow win here.

Napoli v Barcelona – Draw

The Neapolitans finished second in their group behind Liverpool despite picking up four points from the Reds over their two games. That shows that they should have no fear at home against any team, including a Barcelona side that have struggled when playing in Italy in recent times. With Suarez and Dembele injured, Barcelona do have issues in attack but that comes with a caveat as they still have Messi who is still capable of a moment of genius to turn a game. They are fewer on the road than at the Nou Camp however and while I can’t quite see Napoli having enough to win given their recent form, I do feel they should be able to land a draw here.

Bet Analysis: Wednesday 26th February

Lyon v Juventus – Draw

Cristiano Ronaldo may be in a hot streak of form, but Juventus form at the moment is very up and down and their once seemingly unbreakable hold on Serie A does seem to be a little more tenuous this season with Lazio and Inter closing the gap. In Europe, the Italian side have been strong and they should come through this tie with a talented but generally young Lyon side. They have lost a couple of key men over the last couple of years the French side and that is a big loss for them but given Juve’s rocky away form of late, I can see them picking up a point from this game which will give them a fighting chance in the second leg.

Real Madrid v Manchester City – Home Win

With this potentially being Manchester City’s final season in Europe for two years, pending an appeal, I do think Pep Guardiola will focus all his attention on this competition now, especially with the Premier League now seemingly out of sight. Real Madrid though are proving tough to beat under Zinedine Zidane once again and no team is more experienced in this competition. Real are not the side they once were and while I have gone for them to win this game, I do feel City will score at least one, if not more away goals. I think this game will see a few goals and Real will land the win, but I’d still make City favourites to go through in the second leg.
