The Champions League is back and we have some exciting fixtures starting today. Our winning streak is still on after our weekend picks all fell through. Here are our picks for the Champions League:
DYNAMO KIEV VS BARCELONA
The Catalans will be traveling to Ukraine to face their host who they narrowly defeated in Camp Nou by a goal to nil. Both teams need the maximum three points in this game to at least qualify for the next phase of the Champions League or possibly the Europa League. Worryingly, Barcelona have gone five away games in all competitions without a win since the season kicked off – failing to score in each of their last four. On the other hand Kiev are yet to score a goal in this campaign. Barca might win but I don’t see them scoring more than one goal.
Prediction : Handicap 2:0 for Kiev
JUVENTUS VS ZENITH
Juve are currently topping their group and would want to continue in that vein. Though they are struggling domestically but they would want to win this one to remain top of the group. Zenith already have 3 points and would also want to put up a fight. This might not be a stroll in the park for Juve especially with them struggling to find the back of the net.
Prediction : Juve win or draw.
REAL MADRID VS SHAKTAR DONETSK
Madrid are currently top of their group with 6 points and would want to win this especially with Inter breathing down their neck. Madrid won the first leg convincingly and would want to take all three points. Los Blancos are in fine form both in the league and the Champions League after their shocking defeat to Sheriff so this should be another victory.
Prediction : Madrid win
