Bayern Munich takes on Victoria Plzen on Tuesday to fly to nine points in the Champions’ League group and beat Inter and Barcelona, who will face each other in a direct match. Thanks to their latest victory in the Bundesliga, the Bavarians have pushed away the winds of the crisis and are facing a game in steep decline. The Czechs in fact do not have the potential to resist the Germans, and they have shown it in the challenges, which both teams lost, with the other two teams in the group.
Bayern Munich DWDWLW
Bayern Munich will be looking to build on their recent performance after a 4-0 victory over Bayer Leverkusen in the Bundesliga.
During that game, Bayern Munich held possession for 62% of the time and had 20 shots on goal, with nine of those shots finding the target. Bayer Leverkusen, the team they were playing against, had ten shots on goal, with five of them hitting the target.
The fact that the Bayern Munich backline has shown a great deal of solidity has been brought to light by their most recent results. The stingy defensive play of Bayern Munich has resulted in only four goals being scored against them in the last six matches they have participated in. This brings their cumulative goal total for those matches to a total of four.
Viktoria Plzeň WLWLWD
In their most recent match, which took place in the First League, Viktoria Plzeň and Bohemians 1905 played to a 1-1 draw.
Across the most recent six contests that Michal Bilek’s Viktoria Plzeň team has participated in, they have converted nine of their shots on goal into goals for the team. There have been 10 goals scored against them during that time span, bringing the total number of goals scored against them to 10.
Injured and suspended
Bayern Munich: (Lucas Hernández, Bouna Sarr, Thomas Müller, Kingsley Coman, Joshua Kimmic).
Viktoria Plzeň: clean bill of health and no suspension concerns.
Bayern Munich vs Viktoria Plzeň Predicted XI
Bayern Munich Predicted XI: Neuer; Davies, Upamecano, de Ligt, Pavard; Goretzka, Sabitzer, Sane, Musiala, Mane; Tel.
Viktoria Plzeň Predicted XI: Stanek; Jemelka, Hejda, Pernica; Havel, Cermak, Kalvach, Sykora, Vikanova; Chory, Mosquera.
We have a hunch that Bayern Munich will be able to generate a respectable number of scoring opportunities and shots on goal, and that’s the opinion that we’re going to stick with.
Viktoria Plze, on the other hand, will have a difficult time scoring, although we do believe that they will most likely respond with a goal of their own at some point in the match.
Therefore, we think Bayern Munich will win the game with an easy 3-1 score.
Spalletti’s Napoli face Ajax on the third day of the Champions League to try to turn up the heat. The Blues have six points after victories over Liverpool and Rangers, while the Lancers have three points after a loss to the Reds and a win over the Scots.
A match that promises to be spectacular between the first in Serie A and the second in the Eredivisie, with the Italian players still undefeated in the season and in great shape. The match at Maradona on Tuesday is expected to draw a large crowd.
Ajax enters this match after their previous Eredivisie meeting against Go Ahead Eagles ended in a 1-1 draw.
Davy Klaassen was the only player from Ajax to have their name appear on the scoresheet (at the 45-minute mark).
In five of of the last six contests that Ajax has taken part in, there have been three or more goals scored on average each game. In this span, Ajax’s opponents scored 5, while they themselves racked up 16 goals for themselves.
SSC Napoli WWWWWW
The last time Napoli played, they beat Torino 3-1 in Serie A.
In that encounter, SSC Napoli enjoyed 49% possession and 15 shots on goal, with 7 of them on target.
A string of great showings from the SSC Napoli defense has seen the number of goals they have conceded stand at four from their past six encounters combined. Over that same span, their forwards have scored 15.
Injured and suspended
Ajax: (Jorge Sánchez, Mohamed Ihattaren, Ahmetcan Kaplan)
SSC Napoli: (Victor Osimhen).
Ajax vs Napoli Predicted XI
Ajax Predicted XI: Pasveer, Rensch, Timber, Bassey, Blind, Berghuis, Álvarez, Taylor, Tadic, Kudus, Bergwijn.
SSC Napoli Predicted XI: Meret, Di Lorenzo, Rrahmani, Kim, Rui, Lobotka, Anguissa, Politano, Zielinski, Kvaratskhelia, Simeone.
Our prediction is for a score of 2-2 when it is all said and done. Napoli are in a state of grace; at this moment, they seem unbeatable and will not lose even on Dutch soil. We favor this choice because Ajax instead seems to have lost their edge in the last few games, including the last one in the league in which they did not go beyond a draw with the penultimate team in the standings.
Inter, clearly in crisis after a 1-2 defeat at home to Roma on the eighth day of the Serie A season, will face Barcelona on the third day of Champions League Group C at the Giuseppe Meazza Stadium. If the Nerazzurri lose again, Coach Simone Inzaghi, whose bench is becoming more and more unstable, could be fired early.
The ranking tells us that the two teams are paired, and this could be an important crossroads towards qualifying for the round of 16, given that after this match, Inter will then have to go away to both Barcelona and Munich. Xavi’s Baça are holding their own against Real Madrid in the league, and in the last game, they won at Mallorca with a goal from Robert Lewandowski.
Inter Milan LLWWLL
After suffering a loss to Roma by a score of 1-2 in their most recent Serie A match, Inter Milan will be hoping for a better outcome this time around.
During that match, Inter Milan held 58% of the possession and had 15 shots on goal, with only two of them finding the target. The Italian team had ten shots on goal, only three of which were on target.
During their last six matches, Inter Milan, under the direction of Simone Inzaghi, have found the back of the net seven times. In contrast, the number of goals that have been scored against them in those games brings the total up to 10.
In their last La Liga game, Barcelona beat Mallorca 1-0, so they will come into this game on a high from that win.
During that match, Barcelona held possession of the ball for 72% of the time and had 11 shots on goal, with only three of them hitting the target. Mallorca took 13 shots on goal, only three of which were on target.
The recent run of six matches that Barcelona has participated in has resulted in only three goals being scored against them. This is due to the consistently strong defensive play of the club’s players. Over the course of that span of time, they have scored 16 goals under their own steam.
Injured and suspended
Inter Milan: (Alex Cordaz, Romelu Lukaku, Marcelo Brozovic).
Barcelona: (Héctor Bellerín, Frenkie de Jong, Memphis Depay, Jules Koundé, Ronald Araújo).
Inter Milan vs Barcelona Predicted XI
Inter Milan Predicted XI: Onana, Skriniar, de Vrij, Bastoni, Darmian, Dimarco, Barella, Asllani, Mkhitaryan, Dzeko, Martinez.
Barcelona Predicted XI: ter Stegen, Roberto, Pique, Garcia, Alonso, Gavira, Busquets, Pedri, Raphinha, Lewandowski, Dembele.
Inter Milan will have their job cut out for them if they want to score against this Barcelona lineup, as we believe that Barcelona will most likely score and take the lead in this match.
As a result, Barcelona emerges victorious from this match with a score of 0-1 after a hard-fought performance.
Liverpool host Glasgow Rangers at Anfield for the third round of the Champions League, Group A. The Reds have three points in the group after two rounds, with one win and one defeat, while the Rangers close the table with zero points. Klopp’s team had a lazy start to the league, with just 10 points in 7 games, and in the last round came a daring 3-3 draw against De Zerbi’s Brighton, even leading 2-0 in the first part of the match.
Rangers are in second place in the Scottish Premiership, behind Celtic, their long-time rivals. There is little chance of accessing the round of 16 after two consecutive defeats in the first two games of the group, but in the last round of the league, there was a key victory 4-0 against Hearts, and Rangers reach the challenge against Liverpool with an open winning streak of two consecutive races. Three defeats and three victories in the last six games for van Bronckhorst’s side, while Klopp will almost certainly face Ajax in the round of 16.
Liverpool comes into this match after playing Brighton & Hove Albion to a 3-3 draw in the last Premier League match.
During that match, Liverpool held a 54% possession advantage and had 15 shots on goal, with 7 of them landing in the target area. On the other hand, Brighton & Hove Albion had six shots on goal, and they were successful in scoring with all six of those attempts.
In five of the last six matches that Liverpool has participated in, there have been at least three goals scored per contest. In these matches, Liverpool scored 17 goals, while the other teams only managed to score nine.
Rangers are coming into this matchup on the heels of a victory in the Premiership, having won their previous match against Hearts by a score of 4-0.
Rangers had 66 percent of the possession in that game, and they had 20 shots on goal, with seven of them finding the target. At the other end of the field, Hearts had seven shots on goal, but only one of them was successful in hitting the target.
At least three goals have been scored in each of the most recent six matches involving the Rangers. These matches have all had six goals scored. During that stretch, the number of goals that were scored per game on average was 3.67, while the number of goals that the Rangers scored on average was equal to 1.5.
Injured and suspended
Liverpool: (Curtis Jones, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Naby Keïta).
Rangers: (Nnamdi Ofoborh, Jon McLaughlin, Tom Lawrence, Ianis Hagi, John Souttar, Filip Helander, James Sands).
Liverpool vs Rangers Predicted XI
Liverpool Predicted XI: Becker, Alexander-Arnold, Matip, van Dijk, Tsimikas, Elliott, Fabinho, Alcantara, Salah, Nunez, Diaz.
Rangers Predicted XI: McGregor, Tavernier, Goldson, Davies, Barisic, Lundstram, Jack, Matondo, Arfield, Kent, Colak.
We anticipate that Liverpool will be able to generate a satisfactory amount of scoring opportunities and shots on target during the course of this match.
However, it is possible that Rangers will have trouble scoring goals of their own, despite the fact that we anticipate them to be threatening at times.
As a result, we believe that Liverpool will emerge victorious in this match by a score of 3-1 after all is said and done.
