Manchester City vs Steaua Bucharest Preview

Manchester City are already 5-0 up after the away leg in Romania so they’re as good as through to the next round already; this makes life somewhat difficult for us because it seems likely that Pep Guardiola will play a much-changed team for this match to rest some of his senior players. Predicting a result is therefore tricky and we will have to wait until the team is announced to decide how to proceed.

Picks?

If it’s a full strength City team pick players from all positions – otherwise wait and see.

Apoel Nicosia vs FC Copenhagen Preview

This is a closer tie between FC Copenhagen from Denmark and Apoel Nicosia from Cyprus with Danes leading 1-0 from the first leg. The home side are the narrow favourites to win this tie but we feel that a well-organised Copenhagen defence may be able to keep a clean sheet, possibly score on the break and push on to a victory. Having said that we’re inclined to play safe and stick with defenders/midfielders from both sides in anticipation of a low-scoring match.

  Form All Games Last 5  Average Goals Scored  Average Goals Conceded
Nicosia  LLWL  3.00 0.00
Copenhagen DWWDW 2.50 0.50

 

Picks?

Defenders and midfielders from either side.

FC Rostov vs Ajax Preview

This could be another close game with the score tied after a 1-1 draw in Amsterdam after the first leg; Rostov are the narrow favourites are it’s fair to say that the visitors are not in the best form so we’re inclined towards a home win in what we think will be a low-scoring affair.

  Form All Games Last 5  Average Goals Scored  Average Goals Conceded
Rostov  WDLDW  1.33 0.00
Ajax LDDWW 3.00 1.00

 

Picks?

Go for home defenders and midfielders from either side.

FC Salzburg vs Dinamo Zagreb

It’s 1-1 after the first leg in Croatia which means there’s still all to play for between Salzburg and Zagreb. Croatia will bring with the them the confidence of being by far the strongest team in their domestic league but Salzburg have started reasonably well in their own, arguably better quality league and should prove to strong ultimately. There’s a good chance of a home clean sheet and we expect a Salzburg win.

  Form All Games Last 5  Average Goals Scored  Average Goals Conceded
Salzburg  WWWDW  2.00 0.67
Zagreb WWWWW 3.00 0.00

 

Picks?

We’ll be selecting players from Salzburg, especially defenders.

Borussia Munchengladbach vs BSC Young Boys

The Bundesliga has yet to start but that didn’t stop the German team coming away from the first leg in Switzerland with a 3-1 win to ensure what should be a reasonably comfortable route into the next round of the Champions League. Borussia should still be selecting a strong squad for this match just to make sure of progression.

  Form All Games Last 5  Average Goals Scored  Average Goals Conceded
Borussia
Young Boys WLLWL 1.00 1.50

 

Picks?

Go for Borussia players from all positions but steer clear of Young Boys.
