Manchester United suffered a lot in the first leg, coming close to a sensational defeat. Then the Red Devils managed to re-establish the hierarchies, but the fright was evident. A warning is also in order for the return match, which Ronaldo and his teammates will have to approach in a very different way compared to that of the first leg. Also, Manchester United’s qualification is far from certain, as the six points they have so far in the standings are insufficient to allow them to sleep peacefully. For this, we must not play with fire and, vice versa, take three other fundamental points to get to the last two challenges with a minimum of peace of mind.
Manchester United WLWLWW
After taking the Premier League match against Everton by a score of 1-2, Manchester United is looking to extend their winning streak.
During that game, Manchester United held 61% of the possession and had 12 shots on goal, with four of them finding the back of the net. Everton had ten shots on goal, but only two of them were on target.
In the most recent matches, Manchester United have only managed to avoid giving up goals on a handful of occasions. In fact, Manchester United’s defense has been broken into in 5 of their last 6 games, which has led to 11 goals being scored against them in that time.
Omonia Nicosia LLWWLL
As a result of their loss in the last match in the First Division tournament, which was played against AEL Limassol, Omonia Nicosia will be looking to make amends in this match.
During the course of their most recent six matches, Neil Lennon’s Omonia Nicosia side has seen a total of ten of their attempts at scoring goals result in goals. Eight goals have been scored against them during the same matches, bringing the total number of goals scored against them to 8.
Manchester United: (Raphaël Varane, Donny van de Beek).
Omonia Nicosia: clean bill of health and no suspension concerns.
Manchester United Predicted XI: Dubravka, Dalot, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw, Fred, Casemiro, Fernandes, Antony, Cristiano Ronaldo, Elanga.
Omonia Nicosia Predicted XI: Fabiano, Kitsos, Psaltis, Yuste, Miletic, Bachirou, Panagiotou, Cassama, Loizou.
It would appear like Manchester United will have an easier time finding the back of the net than Omonia Nicosia, who will be competing against a team that has a good chance of scoring several goals.
Our prediction is that Manchester United will emerge victorious from the game with a score of 3-0 once it is all said and done.
Derby della Mole on the tenth day of Serie A 2022/2023. A match between two teams in suboptimal positions: the visitors are placed “better” with 13 points, good for eighth place, while the Grenades are tenth with 11. The team coached by Ivan Juric avoided an undeserved defeat in the last round of Serie A by drawing 1-1 at home against Empoli, with Sasa Lukic equal in extremis.
Massimiliano Allegri’s Juventus, on the other hand, lost both the last league match at AC Milan and the last Champions League match at Maccabi Haifa with the same result: 2-0. The bianconeri’s situation is dire, and the coach has ordered everyone to retire until at least this match.
The previous match for Torino, which was played against Empoli, ended in a 1-1 tie in the Serie A standings.
During that game, Torino had 66 percent of the possession and 20 shots on goal, with seven of those shots finding the target. On the other hand, Empoli had six shots on goal, but only two of them were on target.
In their most recent matches, Torino’s offensive efforts have been relatively inefficient. Just four of their opponents’ goals have been scored against them throughout the course of their past six encounters. During those matches, Torino has conceded a total of nine goals, bringing the total number of goals scored against them to nine.
After losing to Maccabi Haifa in the Champions League match that came right before this one, Juventus will be hoping for a better result in this one.
During that match, Juventus held 58% of the possession and had 10 shots on goal, with 5 of them finding the back of the net. Maccabi Haifa, on the other hand, had 14 shots on goal, with 4 of them landing in the target area.
The statistics speak for themselves, and they show that Juventus has allowed goals to be scored against them in 5 of their previous 6 matches, for a total of 8 goals conceded. In defense, Juventus really haven’t been that solid at all.
Torino: clean bill of health and no suspension concerns.
Juventus: (Federico Chiesa, Mattia De Sciglio, Kaio Jorge, Paul Pogba)
Torino Predicted XI: Milinković-Savić, Djidji, Schuurs, Rodriguez, Aina, Lukic, Linetty, Lazaro, Miranchuk, Vlasic, Sanabria.
Juventus Predicted XI: Szczesny, Danilo, Bonucci, Bremer, Sandro, Cuadrado, Locatelli, Rabiot, Kostic, Milik, Vlahovic.
Since Juventus’s team has been hit hard by injuries and bad moment, now is the best time psychologically to play them after the last Champions League game.
On the other hand, there is a Torino team that has been performing bad this season.
We anticipate a close contest that will end in a tie score of 0-0 after 90 minutes of play.
The most anticipated match of the upcoming round of the Premier League will take place at Anfield between Liverpool and Manchester City. The club coached by Guardiola is dominating both the league and the Champions League, whereas Liverpool’s performance this season has been far worse than anticipated, particularly in the Premier League. In point of fact, Klopp has already qualified for the Round of 16 after placing second in Group A in Europe, behind Napoli. Additionally, Klopp is fresh off an incredible 7-1 victory against Rangers in the round prior to this one. Scores like this are quite uncommon in the Champions League, especially in a group stage.
Instead, City played Copenhagen to a scoreless draw, which was completely unimportant considering that Guardiola’s club had already secured its spot in the knockout phase and that Haaland was left on the bench in preparation for the crucial encounter against Liverpool. The current Premier League standings see City in second place, one point behind Arsenal, who presently hold the lead. On the other hand, Liverpool are in a precarious situation, as they are currently lying in the middle of the table in the tenth position with just 10 points after playing a total of eight games.
On the other side, City has 23 points after 9 games, while the Reds have yet to complete a round of play to catch up to City. However, Klopp’s journey through the league has been fraught with adversity, as evidenced by the fact that his team has collected just two points over the course of their most recent three games and suffered a 3-2 loss to the leaders of the league, Arsenal, in their most recent match. The Reds can’t seem to get their act together, and as a result, they have a long way to go before they can compete in the Champions League again. A strong reaction from the team in the form of a comeback will be required to turn around a poor season. On the other side, The City has performed admirably away from home, as seen by their four victories in the previous five rounds.
After defeating Rangers 1-7 in the Champions League in their most recent match, Liverpool will hope to pick up right where they left off this time around.
During that match, Liverpool held 57 percent of the possession and had 20 shots on goal, with nine of them finding their mark. The Rangers had seven shots on goal, but only two of them were on target.
Over the previous six matches in which Liverpool has participated, there has been an average of at least three goals scored per game. During this span, Liverpool was able to accumulate 17 goals while their opponents were only able to score 12.
Manchester City WWWWWD
In their most recent match, Manchester City and FC Copenhagen played to a scoreless draw in the Champions League.
During that match, Manchester City held 59% of the possession and had 14 shots on goal, with only 4 of them finding the target. On the other hand, FC Copenhagen had six shots on goal, but only one of them was successful in hitting the target.
The defensive players for Manchester City have been on a roll lately, as seen by the fact that their team’s goal-against record now stands at four after each of their most recent six matches. Twenty goals have been scored by their forwards throughout the same time period.
Liverpool: (Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Curtis Jones, Naby Keïta, Joel Matip, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Luis Díaz).
Manchester City: (Kyle Walker, Kalvin Phillips)
Liverpool Predicted XI: Alisson, Konaté, Gomez, Van Dijk, Tsimikas, Henderson, Alcantara, Salah, Jota, Elliot, Núñez.
Manchester City Predicted XI: Ederson, Cancelo, Akanji, Dias, Aké, De Bruyne, Rodri, Silva, Foden, Haaland, Mahrez.
Liverpool definitely has the ability to score against this Manchester City team, but it’s unlikely that this will be enough to give them the result they want in this game.
As a result, we anticipate that there will be goals scored by both teams, with Manchester City ultimately emerging victorious with a score of 2-3. We anticipate there will be very little difference between the two.
Real Madrid and Barcelona are going head-to-head once again, and this time there is a lot riding on the outcome. Both teams currently sit on 22 points with seven victories, one draw, and no losses. It is an extraordinary march that has led to Real Madrid’s qualification for the Champions League and Ancelotti’s advancement to the second round of the competition.
On the other hand, Barcelona, who played at home and tied 3-3 with Inter Milan on Wednesday night, is in grave danger of being eliminated from the competition.
Real Madrid WWDWWD
Real Madrid comes into this match with a 1-1 draw against Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League, thus they are looking to get back on track.
During that match, Real Madrid held control of the ball for 58% of the time and had 17 shots on goal, with 5 of them finding the target. Shakhtar Donetsk, the team that they were playing against, had 11 shots on goal, but only two of them were successful.
Real Madrid have not had any difficulties scoring, as they have struck the target in each of their previous six games, making their scoring percentage perfect. During that time period, they have scored a total of 9 goals while also allowing a total of 4 goals to be scored against them. Real Madrid hasn’t lost a league match at home in the last seven, so they’re confident going into this game.
In the last Champions League game between Barcelona and Inter Milan, the score was 3-3.
During that match, Barcelona held 62 percent of the possession and had 25 shots on goal, 11 of which were on target. On the opposite side of the field, Inter Milan had 11 shots on goal, eight of which were on target.
In the most recent games, it has become clear that there is a pattern in which at least one opponent fails to score a goal when playing against Barcelona. When looking at the results of their most recent 6 encounters, we can see that this has occurred 5 times. During those matches, Barcelona’s opponents have scored a combined total of six goals, while the Catalan club has netted eight.
Barcelona enters this encounter having not tasted defeat in any of their previous 19 matches played away from home in the league. There aren’t many teams that can brag about having an away record as excellent as that.
Real Madrid: (Thibaut Courtois).
Barcelona: (Héctor Bellerín, Andreas Christensen, Memphis Depay, Jules Koundé, Ronald Araújo)
Real Madrid Predicted XI: Lunin, Carvajal, Militão, Alaba, Mendy, Valverde, Camavinga, Modric, Rodrygo, Benzema, Vinícius.
Barcelona Predicted XI: ter Stegen, Roberto, Piqué, García, Alonso, Gavi, Busquets, Pedri, Raphinha, Lewandowski, Dembélé.
Real definitely has the ability to score against Barcelona, but it’s unlikely that this will be enough to give them the result they want in this game.
As a result, we anticipate that there will be goals scored by both teams, with Barcelona ultimately emerging victorious with a score of 2-3. We anticipate there will be very little difference between the two.
