Forecast: Liverpool will not lose and the total is less than 2.5 for 2.43.
Liverpool struggled with Watford on Saturday, but still beat the opponent (2-0) and continued the chase for Manchester City. Zhota continues to score, and Alison makes timely saves. The Merseysiders have no problems with injuries, so Klopp has a wide choice of players, which is important given that April 10 will be the most important match against City. “Benfica” surprised, passing “Ajax” in the ⅛ finals, but in their championship, even after the change of coach, the results did not improve much. The center of defense from the age of Otamendi and Vertonghen is not impressive, with 5 matches out of 8, the Portuguese spent in this Champions League to zero. Liverpool also started away in the last round. With “Inter”, the English played the same way, but saved substitutions and a pass from the corner to Firmino. Here we can see something similar.
Forecast: Atletico win with a handicap of +1 for 2.51.
“Manchester City” in front of the Champions League calmly warmed up at “Burnley”. The score was 2: 0, but at times there should have been a defeat. Guardiola’s model works in most matches without Kane’s scoring striker – almost any player from the attacking group can be different from the “citizens”. But in the Champions League with “Man City” often something strange happens, so he is not guaranteed victory, despite the quotes of bookmakers. Atletico can play in second place, most recently Manchester United and Ronaldo were convinced of this. Simeone’s team did almost nothing to do at their own goal, but took their chance ahead. Suarez in the center of the attack has now been replaced by Felix, the Portuguese has scored 7 goals in the last 8 matches for the club. So here guests at least can not lose.
Forecast: total less than 2 for 2.41.
Chelsea’s 1-4 defeat to Brentford should not be misleading. The Blues played in their own style, gradually swayed and came forward. But after that, the players thought that the job was done and relaxed, then Eriksen and Co. punished them for it. Such a collapse should not happen against Real Madrid. Ancelotti is not very good at preparing Madrid for top matches: his plan did not work with “PSG” (neither in the first match nor in the first half of the second), against “Barca” the coach also managed with tactics. We expect Chelsea to pick up the ball in the usual style and control it, waiting for the moment to inject. Real will be counting on Vinicius’ races and magic from Modric and Benzema. Here, most likely, everything will be decided in the return match, so you should not wait for the goal extravaganza at Stamford Bridge.
Forecast: victory of “Bavaria” and both will score for 2.80.
“Bavaria” is lucky with the draw in this Champions League draw. In the нала final, “Salzburg” got, which Munich rolled at home 7: 1, now “Villarreal”. No, the Spaniards, of course, will create problems for the German champion, especially at home. Still, Emery builds the team’s game primarily on defense. “Villarreal” also knows how to tolerate, we saw it recently with “Juventus”, there should be no defeat here, at least in the first match. Bayern itself is not infallible in defense, the players know that they will score more than they miss. And there is no doubt that Lewandowski, Mueller, Gnabri and others will find a way to stand out.
