Liverpool Vs Maribor
Thanks to a remarkable 7-0 win over Maribor Liverpool climbed to top position in Group E and the Premier League side will be looking to move one step closer to booking their place in the Champions League last 16 with yet another triumph over the Slovenian champions. The Reds were more than unfortunate not to beat Sevilla at home in their first group game, but we predict that they will pick up all three points from Wednesday’s football match. Maribor experienced all sorts of problems at the back in the embarrassing 7-0 loss to Liverpool and we do not believe that they are capable of upsetting Jurgen Klopp’s troops at Anfield. Mohamed Salah impressed in the reverse fixture and the pacey winger will be the man to watch in the home team. Taking everything into account, Liverpool are likely to roll over Maribor in their fourth group game.
My Verdict: Liverpool 4 : 0 Maribor
Napoli Vs Manchester City
Napoli and Manchester City face each other at Stadio San Paolo in the Group F derby. The Neapolitans aim to get their revenge on the Citizens for a 2-1 loss at Etihad Stadium and it is well known that Maurizio Sarri’s men are a real force to be reckoned with at home. The Serie A side defeated Feyenoord (3-1) in their first home game of the process, but Man City are likely to pose a much bigger threat for the hosts than their previous rivals. Pep Guardiola’s men have been scoring goals for fun in all competitions this season and a win over Napoli would see them advance to the knockout stages of the Champions League. A lively contest is on the cards and we predict that both teams will find the net in the Stadio San Paolo clash. In their last meeting in Naples the Partenopei defeated the Premier League side 2-1.
My Verdict: Napoli 2 : 2 Manchester City
Sevilla Vs Spartak Moscow
Sevilla will be aiming to get their revenge on Spartak Moscow for a shocking 5-1 loss at Otkrytiye Arena when the two teams face each other at Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan. Los Sevillanos aim to regain their spot in top two in Group E, but Eduardo Berizzo’s troops will have to be at their sharpest in Wednesday’s football match if they are to give fans some cheer. Luis Muriel, who joined the club in the summer transfer window, is likely to lead the line for the hosts against Spartak Moscow. The Russian champions proved their worth in the 5-1 win over Sevilla in the reverse fixture, but seeing that they often struggle on the travels, we do not believe that there is a big value in betting on the visitors. Sevilla coach Eduardo Berizzo is under big pressure ahead of Wednesday’s match and we predict that his men are going to help the former Celta Vigo coach keep his job.
My Verdict: Sevilla 2 : 1 Spartak Moscow
Tottenham Vs Real Madrid
After sharing the spoils at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu, Tottenham Hotspur and Real Madrid now take on Wembley Stadium in the reverse fixture. Spurs produced a terrific display in the 1-1 draw with los Blancos in Madrid and they are definitely capable of grabbing something from Wednesday’s football match against the title holders. A man to watch in the home team will be Harry Kane, who has been scoring goals for fun in the Premier League this season. Real Madrid aim to regain top position in Group H and we believe that the visitors will go all guns blazing at Mauro Pochettino’s charges. Cristiano Ronaldo found the net for Zinedine Zidane’s team in the 1-1 draw with Tottenham and the opposition defenders should have him at bay. Yet another close encounter is on the horizon and we predict that the two teams are going to play out a draw in London.
My Verdict: Tottenham 1 : 1 Real Madrid
