Predictions 11-14.04.2023

Manchester City vs Bayern Munich | Champions League (11.04.2023, 21:00)

The first leg of the Champions League quarterfinals between Manchester City and Bayern Munich takes place on Tuesday evening at Etihad Stadium. The draw was cruel and pitted two of the most important teams towards the final triumph, so passing the round becomes very important and can pave the way towards the big-eared cup. The Germans are coming off a good stretch, but they have changed coaches, so the new ways of doing things will take some time to get used to. However, they may be less predictable to their opponents. A few defeats have arrived in the last few weeks, but the Bavarians have been perfect in the Champions League so far: eight wins out of eight games.

On the other hand, Guardiola’s City was not exactly perfect, drawing three times away and on two occasions against German teams. However, the Citizens have grown sharply in recent months and are returning from six consecutive victories, in which they averaged four goals per game. On the other hand, there are nine consecutive victories at Etihad, so for a team that knows that to go through; they must try to direct their fortunes already in these first ninety minutes.

Bayern Munich Predicted XI: Sommer; Pavard, De Ligt, Upamecano, Davies; Goretzka, Kimmich, Sane, Musiala, Coman; Muller.

In our opinion, Manchester City will win 2-1 by the end of the game. 


Benfica vs Inter Milan | Champions League (11.04.2023, 21:00)

The quarterfinals of the Champions League begin, and the first Italian team to take the field is Inter. Simone Inzaghi’s men, after eliminating Porto picked up another Portuguese side, Benfica, and are starting at Da Luz. A far from simple challenge for the Alfa Romeo against a team that is doing extraordinary things this year and that only lost their first home game of the season last Friday against Porto. But the Eagles already have the title, so they are focused on this match against the Nerazzurri, which is very important for deciding whether or not they will qualify.Schmidt’s men have an offensive game and score frequently, so Inter must decide whether to duck and try to limit them or whether to play it openly.

At the moment, Lautaro and his companions are in physical decline and also not at their best from a mental point of view. The six games without a win certainly affect the morale of the team, but the coach’s task is now to reset everything and try to get the best out of the team in a match that can turn the season. Benfica and Inter Milan met in 2004 in the round of 16 of what was then the UEFA Cup, and the Nerazzurri managed to qualify thanks to a success in the second leg at the San Siro.


Form Guide

Benfica WWWWWL

After suffering a setback against Porto by a score of 1-2 in their most recent match in the Primeira Liga, Benfica will be looking to get back on track today.

During that match, Benfica held 61% of the control of the ball and had 7 shots on goal, with only one of them finding the back of the net. On the other side of the field, Porto had seven shots on goal, three of which were on target. 

Benfica has been on a consistent run of goalscoring form, as evidenced by the fact that they have scored at least one goal in each of their previous six games that they have competed in.

During that time period, they have scored a total of 17 goals while also allowing a total of 4 goals to be scored against them.


Inter LDLLDD

Inter match against Salernitana in the previous round ended in a 1-1 draw. The match was played in Serie A.

During that game, Inter held possession for 56% of the time and had 25 shots on goal, with 11 of them landing on target. Salernitana, on the other hand, had 11 shots on goal, with only three of them actually hitting the target. 

It is now obvious that Inter has been struggling to score goals in their most recent six matches, as they have only managed to score a meager total of three goals in that span. During those contests, the Nerazzurri have also been on the receiving end of an identical number of goals scored by other teams.


Benfica vs Inter Milan Predicted XI

Benfica Predicted XI: Vlachodimos; Gilberto, Silva, Verissimo, Grimaldo; Luis, Chiquinho; Mario, Silva, Aursnes; Ramos.

Inter Predicted XI: Onana; D’Ambrosio, De Vrij, Bastoni; Darmian, Barella, Brozovic, Mkhitaryan, Dimarco; Martinez, Dzeko.  


Prediction

Our line of reasoning suggests that Inter should have high hopes of penetrating Benfica’s defense, despite the fact that this may not be enough to prevent a loss for their team.

We anticipate that this match will end with both teams finding the back of the net, with Benfica holding a 2-1 advantage at the match’s conclusion. This one should be quite fascinating.


AC Milan vs Napoli | Champions League (12.04.2023, 21:00)

Milan hosts Napoli at the San Siro for the quarterfinals of the Champions League. Only one victory in the last six games for the Rossoneri, who however managed to beat Napoli 4-0 at Maradona in the league, Spalletti’s worst defeat of the season. In the last round, Milan drew 0-0 against Empoli and currently occupy the fourth position in the standings with 52 points, -1 behind Roma and +1 over fifth-placed Inter. For the Rossoneri, qualifying for the next Champions League is a vital objective, just like it is for the Nerazzurri, while Napoli remains the favorite to advance to the semi-finals. The Azzurri are increasingly alone at the top of the Serie A standings, with 74 points (Lazio is second at 58), just three defeats in this championship, and 24 wins out of 29 games played.

Spalletti eliminated Eintracht Frankfurt without major problems in the round of 16, while Milan got the better of Tottenham and hadn’t conceded a goal for over 200 minutes. Napoli have won four of their last five matches and are aiming for a historic double: the championship and the Champions League. Probable 4-2-3-1 for Pioli, the only two injured Kalulu and Ibra (out of the Champions League list), Tonali and Krunic in midfield with Bennacer on the playmaker line with Leao and Brahim Diaz, Giroud as center forward. Naples will play without Osimhen; Raspadori is ready given Simeone’s injury.  


Form Guide

AC Milan LDDLWD

AC Milan comes into this match after playing Empoli to a scoreless draw in the last Serie A fixture.

During that match, AC Milan held 70 percent of the possession and had 23 shots on goal, four of which were on target. Empoli attempted one shot on goal, but none of them were successful.

The AC Milan squad managed by Stefano Pioli has scored a combined total of 7 goals over the course of their most recent 6 matches, which results in an average of 1.17 goals scored per match.


SSC Napoli LWWWLW

Napoli’s most recent outing, which was their previous match, resulted in a victory for them in Serie A over Lecce by a score of 1-2.

During that match, SSC Napoli had 69% possession of the ball and 9 shots on goal, with only 3 of them finding the target. Lecce, the team they were playing against, had 11 shots on goal, with only three of them hitting the target. 

In recent games involving SSC Napoli, there has been a trend toward at least one team not being able to score. This tendency has been quite persistent. A quick look at their results from the last six games shows that it has happened five times over that span. During those head-to-head contests, SSC Napoli have scored 11 goals while their rivals have scored a combined total of 6.


AC Milan vs Napoli Predicted XI

AC Milan Predicted XI: Maignan; Calabria, Tomori, Kjaer, Hernandez; Tonali, Krunic, Bennacer; Diaz, Leao; Giroud.

Napoli Predicted XI: Meret; Di Lorenzo, Kim, Rrahmani, Rui; Anguissa, Lobotka, Zielinski; Lozano, Raspadori, Kvaratskhelia.


Prediction

When we look at these two, we get the impression that there isn’t much of a difference between them and that both SSC Napoli and AC Milan could end up scoring.

It was a very tight vote, and we believe that a tie is the most likely outcome. As a result, we anticipate a close contest that will end with a score of 1-1 after the 90 minutes.


Real Madrid vs Chelsea | Champions League (12.04.2023, 21:00)

Real Madrid hosts Chelsea in the quarterfinals of the Champions League. Los Blancos come off a 3-2 defeat against Villarreal in the last round of La Liga, enlivened by nervousness after the match with Valverde as the protagonist in the negative and probably disqualified. Ancelotti is in the final of the Copa del Rey after eliminating Barcelona in the semifinals, the second leg decisive with a 4-0 score without history. While La Liga is becoming increasingly blaugrana, Xavi is even 12 points ahead of Real. But if Madrid’s real great goal of the season is the usual Champions League, then Ancelotti could also say goodbye and accept the Brazil bench. Pay attention to the two defeats in the last 4 games for Los Blancos, but in the games that count, Benzema and his teammates never betray.

On the other hand, however, there is a confused Chelsea, in great difficulty in the league, and with Potter’s exemption still fresh. Not exactly the ideal conditions to face a quarter of the Champions League against Real, but in the round of 16, the Blues eliminated Dortmund while Ancelotti overcame Klopp’s Liverpool. Chelsea are upside down with Lampard on the bench until the end of the season in Potter’s place, but the dream for next season remains Nagelsmann. No win in the last 4 games for Chelsea, who in the last round suffered a 1-0 defeat against W’hampton. And in the Premier League, they slipped to 11th place with just 39 points, despite a decidedly ambitious summer transfer market. Trident Benzema, Rodrygo, and Vinicius Jr. for the Spaniards, with Valverde, Kroos, and Modric in midfield. Probably 433 with Havertz, Feliz, and Sterling for Lampard. 


Form Guide

Real Madrid WWLWWL

After suffering a 3-2 defeat to Villarreal in their most recent La Liga match, Real Madrid will be looking to get back on track here in order to improve their standing.

During that match, Real Madrid held 49% of the possession and had 18 shots on goal, with 4 of those shots finding the back of the net. On the other hand, Villarreal had 17 shots on goal, with 8 of them actually hitting the target.

Real Madrid has scored in each and every one of their previous six games, demonstrating that they have been in consistent scoring form. During that entire period, they have scored a total of 17 goals while also allowing a total of 6 goals.   

 

Chelsea WWDLDL

After suffering a loss in their most recent Premier League match against Wolverhampton Wanderers, Chelsea and its fans who are traveling with them will be hoping for a different outcome in this contest.

During that game, Chelsea held 62% of the possession and had 13 shots on goal, with only one of them finding the back of the net. Wolverhampton Wanderers, on the other hand, had nine shots on goal, with four of them actually hitting the target. 

Frank Lampard’s Chelsea team has scored seven times over the course of their most recent six matches, which has resulted in an average of 1.17 goals scored by the club per match.

 

Real Madrid vs Chelsea Predicted XI

Real Madrid Predicted XI: Courtois; Carvajal, Militao, Rudiger, Alaba; Modric, Camavinga, Kroos; Valverde, Benzema, Vinicius Jr.

Chelsea Predicted XI: Kepa; James, Fofana, Koulibaly, Chilwell; Kovacic, Fernandez, Kante; Sterling, Havertz, Felix.


Prediction

Real Madrid should really create enough opportunities to score more than one goal when they face Chelsea, who will not have an easy time finding the back of the net themselves. Taking into account all of the facts, Real Madrid should really create enough chances to score more than one.

As a result, we anticipate that Real Madrid will emerge victorious by a score of 2-0 in a manner that can be considered reasonably comfortable by the time the final whistle blows.


Juventus vs Sporting Lisbon | Europa League (13.04.2023, 21:00)

Juventus hosts Sporting Lisbon at the Allianz Stadium for the quarterfinals of the Europa League. Bianconeri and the Portuguese are two of the favorites for the final victory: Juve eliminated Freiburg in the round of 16, while Sporting, surprisingly, eliminated Arteta’s Arsenal, leaders in the Premier League. Allegri is back from a two-to-one defeat against Lazio in the last round of the championship, played at the Olimpico in Rome with Landucci (assistant coach) on the bench due to Max’s influence. A misstep that does not compromise the run-up to qualification in the Champions League, but a good chunk of the Juventus season will pass because of the decision of the Sports Guarantee College, which on April 19 can cancel the 15-point penalty in the standings. Juventus are in 7th place in the standings with 44 points, while Sporting are in fourth place in the Portuguese championship with 4 wins in their last 5 games.

Amorim’s formation should not be underestimated; whoever goes through will face the winner between Sevilla and Manchester United in the semifinals. Among Sporting stars Paulinho, Trincao, Edwards, Goncalves, and Nuno Santos, the Portuguese are relegated from the Champions League after finishing third in Group D behind Tottenham and Eintracht Frankfurt. Allegri should recover Pogba, who returns to the squad, but risks having to do without Vlahovic, who is in pain from an ankle problem and accused of attacking Lazio. Instead of him, Milik warms up in attack with few doubts for Allegri, with Danilo, Bremer, and Alex Sandro in defense. Starting midfield and Di Maria from the first minute. Confirmed the 343 for Amorim with the offensive trident of Trincao, Paulinho, and Edwards

Sporting Lisbon DWDWDW

The efforts of Rben Amorim’s Sporting Lisbon have resulted in a total of 13 goals scored in their most recent six matches, giving them an average of 2.17 goals scored per game. This has earned them the title of the team with the highest goals-per-game average.


Juventus vs Sporting Lisbon Predicted XI

Sporting Lisbon Predicted XI: Adan; Diomande, Coates, St. Juste; Esgaio, Goncalves, Morita, Reis; Edwards, Chermiti, Trincao.


Prediction

Taking into consideration these two teams, we believe that Juventus should actually score at least once when they face Sporting Lisbon, who will have a difficult time scoring goals against them.

Our analysis leads us to believe that Juventus will emerge victorious in this contest with a score of 2-0 after playing a controlled game.


Manchester United vs Sevilla | Europa League (13.04.2023, 21:00)

Manchester United host Sevilla at Old Trafford for the first leg of their Europa League quarter-finals. The hosts are among the favorites to win the competition, having already lifted the cup in the 2016–17 season. United are back from two consecutive victories; in the last round of the championship, the 2-0 success against Everton arrived, while in the round of 16 of the Europa League, the Red Devils eliminated Betis with a 5-1 aggregate win. Fourth place in the Premier League for ten Hag’s team, in full swing for a place in the Champions League. Also on the horizon are the semi-finals of the FA Cup against Brighton, while a trophy has already arrived this season: the League Cup was lifted after the 2-0 victory in the final against Newcastle.

Season far below expectations for a Sevilla in 13th place in the league table, far from the Europe area. After Sampaoli’s sacking, Mendilibar has tried to give a swerve in recent weeks, and some positive signs have been seen: in the round of 16 of EL, Sevilla eliminated Fenerbahce, while in La Liga, the Spaniards are back from two games without defeats; in the last round, they drew 2-2 against Celta Vigo. Sevilla is a specialist in the Europa League, but the difficulties of this season complicate the chances of lifting the trophy. The winner will face the winner of Juventus and Sporting Lisbon in the semifinals. Probable 4231 for United with Rashford, Bruno Fernandes, and one between Sancho and Antony behind Weghorst at center forward. In midfield, Casemiro and Sabitzer. Mendilibar responds with the offensive trident: Lamela, En Nesyri, and Corona.

During that match, Manchester United held a 64% possession advantage and had 29 shots on goal, with 11 of those shots hitting the target. Everton, the team they were playing against, had 15 shots on goal, with only one of them being on target.

The number of games in which Manchester United’s opponents have scored zero goals in recent weeks is an intriguing statistic.


Sevilla WWLLWD

The most recent match that Sevilla played in was a La Liga match against Celta Vigo, which ended in a 2-2 draw.

During that match, Sevilla held 30 percent of the possession and had 7 shots on goal, with only two of them finding the target. Celta Vigo had a total of 9 shots on goal, only 4 of which were on target.

Manchester United vs Sevilla Predicted XI

Manchester United Predicted XI: De Gea; Dalot, Varane, L Martinez, Malacia; Casemiro, McTominay, Fernandes; Antony, Martial, Sancho

Sevilla Predicted XI: Bono; Montiel, Bade, Gudelj, Acuna; Fernando, Rakitic; Ocampos, Torres, Lamela; En-Nesyri.


Prediction

Taking into consideration these two teams, we believe that Manchester United will most likely be successful in scoring the goals they require against Sevilla, who may have trouble scoring themselves.

As a result, we anticipate that Manchester United will emerge victorious in this contest with a score of 2-0 after playing a discip
