Real Madrid host Celtic at the Santiago Bernabeu for the sixth round of the Champions League, group F. With only two points in the group, the Scots are already out. But after the first three days with full points, the Spaniards have slowed the pace with a draw and a defeat (against Leipzig) in the last two games. Three points are needed to secure the leadership of the group and hope for a more affordable eighth. Ancelotti has just one point in the last two games, fresh from the 1-1 draw against Girona in the league. After 12 rounds, Real Madrid is first in La Liga, one point ahead of Barcelona.
Celtic came off a 3-0 win over Livingston, while they drew 1-1 with Shakhtar in the last round of the Champions League. In the championship, Celtic are first with 33 points, ahead of Rangers, second with 29 points, and coming off five consecutive victories. Real Madrid is the favorite team for the final victory. They can boast the Benzema Ballon d’Or last season and a generational change already well underway, with young players already protagonists and ready to become the new leaders of the team, such as Valverde, Rodrygo, Vinicius Junior, and Camavinga. There is no match on paper, against a Celtic team that has not won a single match in the group, but the Spaniards may have less motivation than expected, having already qualified for the third round. All of Ancelotti’s experience will be needed to keep the tension high.
Real Madrid WDWWWL
After a draw in the previous La Liga match against Girona FC, Real Madrid will participate in this game.
During that encounter, Real Madrid had 58% possession of the ball and 19 shots on goal, with 6 of those shots finding the back of the net. Eight shots were taken by Girona, but only two were on target.
Real Madrid have not been able to stop scoring goals, as evidenced by the fact that they have scored in each of their last six matches (a perfect score streak).
During that time frame, they have racked up a total of 13 goals while only allowing 6 goals to be scored against them.
Celtic are coming into this matchup on the heels of an 0-3 victory against Livingston in their most recent Premiership match.
During that match, Celtic had a 75% possession rate and 16 shots on goal, with 6 of those shots finding their intended target. Livingston took four shots on goal, but only two of them were on target.
The fact that Celtic have been involved in games with a high number of goals is evidenced by the fact that a total of 25 goals have been scored in their most recent six matches. This results in a mean average of 4.17 goals being scored in each contest. There have been a total of eight points scored by opposing clubs from this total.

Real Madrid vs Celtic Predicted XI
Real Madrid Predicted XI: Courtois, Vazquez, Militao, Rudiger, Mendy, Kroos, Camavinga, Ceballos, Valverde, Vinicius.
Celtic Predicted XI: Hart, Juranovic, Vickers, Jenz, Taylor, O’Riley, Hatate, Abada, Haksabanovic, Maeda, Furuhashi.
A Real Madrid lineup that has the potential to really command the terms of this match has the power to make one thing absolutely certain: it will not be easy at all for Celtic to find the back of the net against this Real Madrid squad.
We think Real Madrid will win this game by a score of 3-0, which will be a very convincing win.
AC Milan plays for qualification to the Champions League round of 16 against Salzburg in the final match of the group, but it has two factors in its favor: the home factor, because it is played at San Siro, and the fact that it can count on two out of three results. For Stefano Pioli’s team, in fact, it is enough not to lose this last game to pass the round, because at the moment they are in second place with 7 points and the Austrians are behind with 6. The Devil comes from the defeat against Torino, which particularly disappointed the Rossoneri. This knockout interrupted the three-game winning streak and slowed down the championship run, but the European round has a completely different value.
On the other hand, there is Salzburg, who stopped the Rossoneri at 1-1 in the first leg and who are always strong in the league and are in the lead. The Red Bull club have not lost in nine official away games, and among them is the draw at Stamford Bridge with Chelsea. The team led by Jaissle scores easily, and this can be a problem for Milan, even if the Devils won 3-0 in their only previous match at San Siro.
AC Milan WLWWWL
After suffering a setback to Leeds United by a score of 1-2 in their most recent Premier League After suffering a loss to Torino by a score of 2-1 in their previous Serie A match, AC Milan will be looking to get back on the winning track today.
During that match, AC Milan held 56% of the possession and had 12 shots on goal, with only one being on target. Torino, the team they were playing against, had seven shots on goal, four of which were on target.
AC Milan, coached by Stefano Pioli, have scored 13 goals over the course of their last six matches. Six goals have been scored against them in those same games, making their overall goal differential a negative 6.
Red Bull Salzburg DWWDLW
In their most recent match, Red Bull Salzburg prevailed 1-0 over TSV Hartberg to earn a win in the Bundesliga. They come into this game on that momentum.
During that game, Red Bull Salzburg held possession for 68% of the time and had 18 shots on goal, with 4 of those shots finding the target. TSV Hartberg, the team they were playing against, had 9 shots on goal, with only 2 of them finding the target.
The Red Bull Salzburg squad, captained by Matthias Jaissle, has scored a combined total of 12 goals over the course of their most recent six matches, giving them an average of 2 goals per match.
Injured and suspended
AC Milan: (Mike Maignan, Davide Calabria, Alexis Saelemaekers, Zlatan Ibrahimović, Alessandro Florenzi)
Red Bull Salzburg: (Sekou Koita, Fernando, Oumar Solet, Ousmane Diakité, Nicolás Capaldo, Bryan Okoh, Samson Tijani).
AC Milan vs Red Bull Salzburg Predicted XI
AC Milan Predicted XI: Tatarusanu, Kalulu, Gabbia, Kjaer, Hernandez, Tonali, Bennacer, Rebic, Diaz, Leao, Giroud.
Red Bull Salzburg Predicted XI: Koehn, Dedic, Pavlovic, Woeber, Ulmer, Gourna-Douath, Seiwald, Sucic, Kjaergaard, Okafor, Sesko.
When they face off against Red Bull Salzburg, we believe that AC Milan will, with a high degree of probability, score the goals that they require to win this match.
When all is said and done, it seems likely that AC Milan will emerge victorious by a score of 3-1 with relative ease.
Juve are hosting PSG at the Allianz Stadium for the sixth round of the Champions League, group H. The classification is already outlined with the French already qualified for the round of 16 and ready to play for first place against Benfica (who have the same points in the standings). And with Juventus already eliminated after 4 defeats in the first 5 games of the group, the bianconeri are playing in the Europa League with Maccabi Haifa. Juve have raised their heads, at least in the league, with three consecutive victories that have consolidated Allegri’s position (under discussion after the defeats against Milan, Maccabi, and Benfica) but have not yet definitively resolved the problems of a team that has not yet succeeded in expressing its real potential. In the last round came a painful 1-0 victory against Lecce, the decisive goal of the baby Fagioli, launched by Allegri in the second half. The Bianconeri are in 7th place in the standings with 22 points after 12 games, 2 points from fourth place in the Champions League.
PSG, on the other hand, continues its run to the top of Ligue 1, currently at 35 points, 5 points clear of Lens in second position. The French are returning from a 4-3 victory against Troyes and have an open streak of 4 consecutive victories in all competition.
The goal for Juventus will be to achieve the same kind of victory in Serie A as they had against Lecce, which was a 1-0 victory.
During that game, Juventus had 64% possession and 13 shots on goal, with five of those shots finding the back of the net. On the other hand, Lecce had five shots on goal, but none of them were successful in hitting the target.
In the most recent games that Juventus has played, it has become increasingly common to see a scoreline that simply reads “0.” A wager placed on both teams to score would have resulted in a loss in five of the six matches that came before this one between these two teams.
Paris Saint-Germain DDWWWW
PSG enters this encounter on the heels of a victory over ESTAC in their most recent Ligue 1 match, which they won 4-3.
During that game, Paris Saint-Germain controlled possession for 67% of the time and had 19 shots on goal, 11 of which were on target. Troyes took a total of 16 shots on goal, just 5 of which were on target.
In the previous six matches that Paris Saint-Germain have participated in, our team has scored a total of 22 goals, which works out to an average of 3.67 goals per game on the mean. This demonstrates the team’s tendency to play in games that are fruitful. Their adversaries have collected 6 points from this total.
Injured and suspended
Juventus: (Dušan Vlahović, Ángel Di María, Bremer, Mattia De Sciglio, Federico Chiesa, Leandro Paredes, Paul Pogba.
Paris Saint-Germain: (Neymar).
Juventus vs PSG Predicted XI
Juventus Predicted XI: Szczesny, Gatti, Bonucci, Sandro, Cuadrado, Kostic, Miretti, Locatelli, Rabiot, Kean, Milik.
Paris Saint-Germain Predicted XI: Donnarumma, Ramos, Marquinhos, Kimpembe, Hakimi, Mendes, Vitinha, Verratti, Messi, Sarabia, Mbappe.
We believe that Juventus should have enough against this Paris Saint-Germain club to hit the back of the net, but even if they do, it is unlikely that a single goal will prevent them from allowing a couple of goals at the other end.
Our prediction is that there will be goals scored by both teams, with the final score being 1-2 in favor of Paris Saint-Germain after 90 minutes. We anticipate there will be a lot of competition.
In the program of the last day of the groups of the Europa League, there is also the challenge for the top in group E between Real Sociedad and Manchester United. The Spaniards are in the lead and have won all the games, but they still do not have the mathematical certainty of first place, for which they must not lose by two or more goals against the Red Devils. In that case, in fact, United would catch Imanol Alguacil’s team and would have direct clashes in favor. Closing in on the lead is important because it would mean avoiding the playoff round.
Real Sociedad have lost their last two matches in La Liga and have therefore abandoned fourth place, so there is also a need for a reaction, for a team that has recently been struggling a little too much in front of goal. United has been attempting to solve problems since the start of the season, and Erik Ten Hag is gradually succeeding. Cr7 and his teammates are coming off eight consecutive positive results and will be looking to extend their winning streak, as well as a third consecutive clean sheet after those with Omonia and West Ham. In the first leg at Old Trafford, Sociedad won 0-1; we will now see what happens at the Royal Arena in San Sebastian.
Real Sociedad WWWLWL
After suffering a defeat to Real Betis by a score of 0-2 in their most recent La Liga match, Real Sociedad will be looking to get back on track here.
Real Sociedad had 58% of the possession in that game, and they had 14 shots on goal, with 7 of them finding the target. Real Betis had a total of 10 shots on goal, only four of which were on target.
The presence of a zero in the scoreline is something that has been increasingly regular in Real Sociedad matches in more recent years. If we take into account their previous six matches leading up to this one, a bet on both teams scoring would have resulted in a loss in five of those matches.
Manchester United WDWDWW
In their most recent match, Manchester United defeated West Ham United by a score of 1-0 to earn a win in the Premier League. They will be coming into this match with the momentum of that victory.
During that game, Manchester United held possession for 53% of the time and had 16 shots on goal, with only three of them finding the target. West Ham United had a total of 13 shots on goal, only four of which were successful.
The Manchester United defenders have been on a roll lately, as evidenced by the fact that they have only given up one goal in a combined total of their most recent six matches. This is a testament to the team’s high level of play. During that time frame, their own forwards have scored eight goals for them.
Injured and suspended
Real Sociedad: (Aihen Muñoz, Mikel Oyarzabal, Martín Merquelanz, Ander Barrenetxea, Álex Sola, Umar Sadiq, Momo Cho).
Manchester United: (. Raphaël Varane, Victor Lindelöf)
Real Sociedad vs Manchester United Predicted XI
Real Sociedad Predicted XI: Remiro; Gorosabel, Zubeldia, Pacheco, Rico; Merino, Zubimendi, Guevara; Mendez; Sorloth, Fernandez.
Manchester United Predicted XI: De Gea; Dalot, Martinez, Maguire, Shaw; Casemiro, Eriksen; Antony, Fernandes, Rashford; Ronaldo.
In spite of the fact that it is difficult to differentiate between the two teams, it would appear that neither team has a strong enough chance to triumph.
Because we do not anticipate there to be a substantial gap between them, a tie is a distinct possibility. Because of this factor, we believe that this game will be a close contest that will culminate in a score of 1-1 when it is all said and done.
With the last defeat on the field of PSV Eindhoven, Arsenal’s situation has become a little complicated. To be clear, qualification is not in question, but what could have been a completely downhill road towards first place in the group, now is more: against Zurich they need a win to avoid nasty surprises in the knockout stage draws. The Swiss have not been a particularly difficult obstacle thus far, but when the plug is unplugged, it is difficult to reattach it: Mister Arteta will have to be good at keeping all of his players on the rope and avoid thoughts of going to a decidedly more engaging Premier League match.
After a 5-0 victory over Nottingham Forest in the Premier League, Arsenal will be hoping for more of the same after their most recent performance, and they will be boosted by their previous result.
During that game, Arsenal held possession for 69% of the time and had 24 shots on goal, 10 of which were on target. The opposition, Nottingham Forest, had a total of five shots on goal, with only two of them finding the target.
In recent games involving Arsenal, there have been an unusually high number of scoreless draws. If you take their previous six matches leading up to this one, a bet on both teams to score would have lost in as many as five of those matches prior to this one.
FC Zürich LDDLWW
The most recent match that FC Zürich competed in resulted in a victory for them in the Swiss Super League, as they were victorious over FC Sion by a score of 1-0.
During that match, FC Zürich had 46% possession of the ball and 15 shots on goal, with 8 of those shots hitting the target. Sion, who played for the opposing team, had five shots on goal, but only one of them was on target.
The forward players for FC Zürich have struggled to score goals over the course of their last six games, contributing an unacceptable total of just four goals to the team’s total return. During those games, Der Stadtclub’s opponents scored a total of 10 goals across all of their matches, tying their own goal tally.

Arsenal: (Mohamed Elneny, Oleksandr Zinchenko, Emile Smith Rowe, Granit Xhaka).
FC Zürich: (Mirlind Kryeziu, Blerim Dzemaili, Ilan Sauter, Donis Avdijaj, Miguel Reichmuth)
Arsenal vs FC Zürich Predicted XI
Arsenal Predicted XI: Ramsdale; Tomiyasu, Holding, Gabriel, Tierney; Odegaard, Lokonga, Vieira; Nelson, Nketiah, Martinelli.
FC Zürich Predicted XI: Brecher; Mets, Aliti, Kamberi; Boranijasevic, Selnaes, Conde, Guerrero; Marchesano; Okita, Tosin.
In our opinion, Arsenal is capable of producing a good number of chances and successful shots on target, and they should be able to do so.
On the other hand, FC Zürich could very well have a difficult time breaking through. As a result, we anticipate that Arsenal will finish the game with a win by a score of 2-0, which should provide them some relief.
