Predictions 14-17.02.2023

PSG vs Bayern Munich | Champions League (14.02.2023, 21:00)

PSG will face Bayern Munich at the Parc des Princes for the round of 16 of the Champions League. A highly anticipated final between two European giants, two of the final’s favorites. The Germans finished top of Group C with six wins from six matches, ahead of Inter Milan, Barcelona, and Plzen. While the Parisians finished in second place in Group H, behind Benfica but ahead of Juventus, Nagelsmann’s side achieved their second league win in a row by beating Bochum 3-0 with goals from Müller, Coman, and Gnabry from the penalty spot. The Bavarians are one point ahead of the surprising Union Berlin in the Bundesliga standings. Instead, something has jammed Galtier’s mechanisms: his PSG has recovered from two consecutive defeats. He could weigh Mbappé’s absence or simply think about the Champions League.

But in the last two games, there were two defeats: 2-1 against Marseille in the French Cup (complete with elimination) and 3-1 against Monaco. A braking that has not compromised the leadership in the standings but risks destabilizing the environment in view of Bayern. Full emergency for Galtier, who, in addition to Mbappé, who is certainly out in the first leg, risks having to do without Messi as well. In fact, the Argentine complained of minor muscle discomfort in his thigh in the French Cup against Marseille, but he could grit his teeth. They would be two significant absences for a PSG team that has yet to break the Champions League curse despite multi-million dollar investments over the last decade. 

Form Guide

Paris Saint-Germain WDWWLL

After suffering a defeat against Monaco by the score of 3-1 in their most recent match in Ligue 1, PSG will be hoping for a better showing here.

During that game, Paris Saint-Germain had 58% possession of the ball and 7 shots on goal, with only 2 of those shots finding the back of the net. Monaco had 19 shots on goal, and they were only able to get 9 of them on target.

The recent history of Paris Saint-Germain’s has shown that they are usually fascinating to watch, with a lot of goalmouth action to be anticipated. In just the last half dozen of their head-to-head contests, 23 goals have been scored for both teams combined (which works out to an average of 3.83 goals per game), with Paris Saint-Germain being responsible for 15 of these goals. 

Bayern Munich DDDWWW

Bayern Munich comes into this match on the heels of a victory in their most recent Bundesliga 1 match, in which they defeated VfL Bochum by a score of 3-0.

During that match, Bayern Munich controlled possession for 65 percent of the game and had 23 shots on goal, 12 of which were on target. The opposition, Bochum, had seven shots on goal, but only one of them was successful in hitting the target.

In the last half-dozen matches between the two teams, Bayern Munich has racked up 14 goals. Bayern Munich has found the back of the net on each of those occasions as well. Over the course of that time, they have allowed five goals to be scored into their own net.


PSG vs Bayern Munich Predicted XI

PSG Predicted XI: Donnarumma; Hakimi, Marquinhos, Ramos; Mendes; Pereira; Ruiz, Vitinha, Verratti; Neymar, Messi.

Bayern Munich Predicted XI: Sommer; Cancelo, De Ligt, Upamecano, Davies; Goretzka, Kimmich; Sane, Musiala, Coman; Choupo-Moting.


Both Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain, in our opinion, have a decent chance of putting the ball in the back of the net on many occasions, with very little to choose between the two clubs.

Let’s wait and see how this one turns out, but it seems like both teams have a chance to score goals and there is a chance that the game may end in a tie. After everything has been said and done, we are going to declare this very competitive game to end in a tie with a score of 2-2.

AC Milan vs Tottenham Hotspur | Champions League (14.02.2023, 21:00)

The UEFA Champions League is finally back, and Milan hosts Tottenham at the San Siro for the first leg of the round of 16. Pioli’s team finished second in their group behind Chelsea in the draw, which was not entirely unexpected given the superiority of their opponents. The Rossoneri then arrive at this appointment with a little more enthusiasm thanks to last Friday’s victory against Juric’s Turin, which ended the terrible negative run of the beginning of 2023. As we all know, the away goal rule no longer applies, which means the Devil can and must play openly and without fear.

The Londoners, on the other hand, prevailed in a very difficult and balanced group, finishing ahead of Eintracht Frankfurt, Sporting Lisbon, and Marseille. Antonio Conte’s men have also recovered from the negative period, and their success against Manchester City in the Premier League is clear proof of this. Pioli will not recover Maignan for this challenge, but he will once again have both Tomori and Bennacer available. The last official clashes between the two clubs were in the round of 16 of the Champions League in 2011, and Tottenham prevailed in the double challenge.

Form Guide


After claiming a 1-0 victory over Torino in the previous round of Serie A play, AC Milan will be hoping for a similar outcome in this match.

During that game, AC Milan held 46% of the possession and had 9 shots on goal, with 4 of them finding the target. On the other end of the field, Torino had 12 shots on goal, but only 2 of them were on target.

In recent times, it hasn’t been all that frequently that AC Milan has gone a whole game without giving up a goal. In fact, AC Milan has failed to keep their opponents from scoring in five of their most recent six matches, resulting in 15 goals conceded over that span. 

Tottenham Hotspur LLWWWL

After suffering a defeat in their most recent Premier League contest, which was played against Leicester City, Tottenham Hotspur will be looking to make amends in this matchup.

During that match, Tottenham Hotspur had 50 percent of the control of the ball and 11 shots on goal, with four of those shots hitting the target. There were 15 shots on goal taken by Leicester City, but only 7 of them were on target.

Tottenham Hotspur, coached by Antonio Conte, have had much to cheer about recently, as they have scored eight goals during the course of their most recent six matches. 10 goals have been scored against them over the time in question, making that the total number of goals scored against them.


AC Milan vs Tottenham Hotspur Predicted XI

AC Milan Predicted XI: Tatarusanu; Kalulu, Kjaer, Tomori; Saelemaekers, Bennacer, Tonali, Hernandez; Diaz, Leao; Giroud.

Tottenham Hotspur Predicted XI: Forster; Romero, Dier, Davies; Emerson, Sarr, Skipp, Perisic; Kulusevski, Son; Kane.


Although it’s difficult to identify a winner, our analysis suggests that both Tottenham Hotspur and AC Milan should have equal opportunities to score in this situation.

It will be quite intriguing to see how this one turns out, as there is a significant potential that it will end in a tie. In light of this, we anticipate that it will be a very close contest that ends with a score of 1-1 at the conclusion of the 90 minutes.

Borussia Dortmund vs Chelsea | Champions League (15.02.2023, 21:00)

The UEFA Champions League will get underway again on Wednesday, and the first meeting of Borussia Dortmund and Chelsea’s last-16 encounter will take place at Signal Iduna Park. At the weekend, they earned a 2-0 victory away from home against ninth-placed Werder Bremen. This victory marked the sixth consecutive game in which they scored two or more goals. Dortmund qualified for the knockout stage of the Champions League despite having the fewest number of points of any of the 16 clubs that advanced (nine). They were victorious in two matches, tied in three others, and defeated in one.

While Borussia Dortmund have been on fire in recent games, Chelsea have taken a step back. The Blues are now in ninth place in the Premier League table, and they have been eliminated from the FA Cup competition. The team coached by Graham Potter has only managed to score two goals in their last four matches, and they have only won one of their previous eight matches combined. In their most recent match, which took place away against West Ham, they were held to a 1-1 draw. As a result of the significant number of players that Chelsea brought in during the winter transfer window, striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will not be able to participate in the Champions League for the remainder of the season. Both Ngolo Kante and Mateo Kovacic can’t play for Chelsea right now because they are injured. 

Form Guide

Borussia Dortmund WWWWWW

After beating Werder Bremen 0-2 in their most recent match, Borussia Dortmund is looking to add another victory to their record.

During that match, Borussia Dortmund had 57% of the control of the ball and 18 shots on goal, with 9 of those shots finding their mark. Both Jamie Bynoe-Gittens (in the 67th minute) and Julian Brandt (in the 85th minute) found the back of the net for Borussia Dortmund. On the other end of the field, Werder Bremen had 9 shots on goal, but only 4 of them were successful in hitting the target.

Borussia Dortmund has not had any trouble scoring in their last six games, as they have been able to put the ball in the back of the net in every single one.

During that time, they have amassed 17 claims while making only 6 concessions.

Chelsea LLWDDD

Prior to then, Chelsea’s previous Premier League meeting against West Ham United ended in a 1-1 draw.

During that game, Chelsea held possession of the ball for 72% of the time and had 12 shots on goal, with only four of them missing the target. On the other side of the field, West Ham United had 10 shots on goal, but only 2 of them were successful in hitting the target. 

In their last six matches, the attacking players for Chelsea have struggled mightily to score goals, as evidenced by their disappointing return of only three goals scored overall. During those contests, the Blues have also been on the receiving end of an identical number of goals scored by the opposing sides.

Borussia Dortmund vs Chelsea Predicted XI

Borussia Dortmund Predicted XI: Kobel, Ryerson, Süle, Schlotterbeck, Guerreiro, Bellingham, Can, Adeyemi, Reus, Brandt, Haller.

Chelsea Predicted XI: Kepa, James, Thiago Silva, Badiashile, Cucurella, Loftus-Cheek, Fernandez, Mount, Joao Felix, Mudryk, Havertz.


In what looks to be a very close contest between Chelsea and Borussia Dortmund, it’s possible that both teams may end up finding the back of the net at some point.

It will be quite intriguing to see how this one turns out, as there is a significant potential that it will end in a tie. Due to this fact, our prediction for this match is that it will be a close contest that ends in a score tie of 1-1 after the whole 90 minutes.

Club Brugge vs Benfica | Champions League (15.02.2023, 21:00)

At the Jan Breydel Stadium, one of the most intriguing round of 16 matches in the UEFA Champions League features defending champions Club Brugge of Belgium taking on a Benfica team that is in red-hot form from Portugal. The host team was able to punch their ticket to the knockout stages thanks to an unexpectedly strong performance in the group stage phase, during which they finished in second place in Group B after a record of three wins, two draws, and one loss. In the end, Club Brugge would finish second in the group stage with 11 points, only one point behind FC Porto, who would end up winning the group. The home team has struggled mightily of late, winning only one of their last ten league matches while also recording seven draws and two defeats. The team has now played to ties in five of their previous six matches, making it impossible for them to hammer the last nail in the coffin in their recent matchups.

Benfica is now enjoying an outstandingly successful season, which will make things much more challenging for Club Brugge, who will now have to compete against a team that is having a very successful campaign. The Eagles got off to a blazing fast start this season, going unbeaten in their first 28 matches across all competitions. They were victorious in 24 of those matches, including all of their UEFA Champions League qualifying round and group stage matches. Benfica finished first in a group that also contained PSG and Juventus thanks to their record of four victories, two draws, and six overall points. They did, however, just lose the Portuguese Cup on Thursday in a penalty shootout to Braga, so there is something to consider. Benfica had won their previous four matches in a row, keeping a clean sheet in each and scoring 11 goals during that winning streak. 

Form Guide

Club Brugge DDDWDD

In their previous meeting, Club Brugge and Union Saint-Gilloise played to a 1-1 draw in the First Division A. They now head into this match with that result fresh in their minds.

During that match, Club Brugge had 56% of the ball control and 10 shots on goal, with 4 of those shots finding their mark. Union Saint-Gilloise, the team they were playing against, had 19 shots on goal, but only two of them were on target. 

In recent years, there have been very few instances in which Club Brugge has demonstrated defensive tenacity. They will likely be troubled by the fact that Club Brugge’s defense has been broken into in 5 of their last 6 matches, resulting in the conceding of 6 goals during that span of play.

Benfica WDWWWW

Benfica comes into this match on the heels of a 3-0 victory over Casa Pia in their most recent match, which they played in the Primeira Liga and won.

During that game, Benfica held 74% of the possession and had 16 shots on goal, with 5 of them finding the back of the net. Casa Pia took seven shots on goal, but none of them were successful.

Benfica has scored 14 goals in their last six meetings with their opponents. Benfica also managed to find the back of the net in each one of those matches. During that time span, they’ve had two goals scored against them in their own net.


Club Brugge vs Benfica Predicted XI

Club Brugge Predicted XI: Mignolet, Nusa, Mechele, Boyata, Meijer, Nielsen, Odoi, Vanaken, Lang, Sowah, Jutgla.

Benfica Predicted XI: Vlachodimos, Gilberto, Silva, Otamendi, Grimaldo, Aursnes, Luis, Mario, Rafa, Neres, Ramos.


We think that it will be difficult for Club Brugge to put up a score against this Benfica club, who we believe will be able to score themselves and come out on top in the match.

Benfica won a hard-fought game that ended with a score of 0-1 in their favor.

Arsenal vs Manchester City | Premier League (15.02.2023, 21:00)

Arsenal and Manchester City will meet this Wednesday, February 15th, at the Emirates Stadium in London for another game counting for the twenty-fourth round of the Premier League.

A game between two teams fighting club by club to win the Premier League. The first and second classifieds will be on the field. Arsenal, the leader of the Premier League, has been having an excellent season, surpassing all expectations. It has 51 points in 21 games played, and in its stadium, it still hasn’t lost this season! In the previous round, they failed to win again, drawing 1-1 against Brentford. On the other hand, Manchester City, currently second in the Premier League, has had a slightly irregular season compared to previous years. Pepe Guardiola’s men shortened the distance in the last round, and if they win this game, they will tie Arsenal on time despite having one more game. In the previous round, they defeated Aston Villa by three goals to one.

Gabriel Jesus is the only relevant loss for the home team. On City’s side, only John Stones is unavailable. 

Form Guide

Arsenal WWWLLD

As a consequence of their draw against Brentford in the Premier League, Arsenal will participate in this game. The score of that match was 1-1.

During that game, Arsenal held possession for 69% of the time and had 23 shots on goal, with 7 of them finding their mark. On the other end of the field, Brentford had 9 shots on goal, with only 2 of them actually hitting the target.

Arsenal, captained by Mikel Arteta, have scored nine goals throughout their last six matches. There have been 5 goals scored against them in five matches, bringing their overall goal tally to 5.

Manchester City LWWWLW

Manchester City’s most recent match in the Premier League was a 3-1 win against Aston Villa, and they will bring that momentum into this contest.

During that match, Manchester City held possession of the ball for 67% of the game and had 17 shots on goal, with 9 of them landing in the target area. Aston Villa had 5 shots on goal, but only 2 of them were on target.

Manchester City, coached by Pep Guardiola, have scored 12 goals in the course of their most recent six matches, giving them an average of 2 goals scored per match.

Before this game, Manchester City hadn’t lost to Arsenal in any of the six league games that both teams played away from their homes. 

Arsenal vs Manchester City Predicted XI

Arsenal Predicted XI: Ramsdale; White, Saliba, Gabriel, Zinchenko; Xhaka, Partey; Saka, Odegaard, Martinelli; Jesus.

Manchester City Predicted XI: Ederson; Lewis, Dias, Laporte, Ake; De Bruyne, Rodri, Gundogan; Mahrez, Haaland, Grealish.


We get the impression that both Manchester City and Arsenal are capable of scoring, which result in this would match being played at a level playing field for both teams.

Because we do not anticipate there to be a significant gap between them, a tie is a distinct possibility. As a result, the game ended with a score of 1-1 after a battle-hardened performance by both teams.

Barcelona vs Manchester United | Europa League (16.02.2023, 18:45)

Barcelona hosts Manchester United at the Nou Camp in the first leg of the Europa League play-offs. Top-level superclassic between two teams used to playing in the Champions League finals, led by two young coaches like Xavi and ten Hag looking for redemption after a first part of the season that didn’t live up to expectations in Europe. The elimination of the blaugrana from the Champions League group was surprising for the second year in a row. In group C, the Spaniards finished in third place with 7 points, behind Bayern and Inter. While United finished second in their Europa League group with the same points as Real Sociedad. Xavi’s path in La Liga was very different: solitary at the top with a consistent advantage over Real Madrid in second place.

The English team is climbing back up to third place, -2 points behind second-placed Manchester City. Xavi will have to do without two big names like Dembélé and Busquets, as confirmed by Raphinha, Lewandowski, and Gavi. Ten Hag will face significant challenges if Casemiro recovers: he will not have van de Beek, Eriksen, McTominay, Martial, the disqualified Sabitzer, and Lisandro at his disposal, and Antony will not be at his best. Formation to be recalibrated with Rashford as an offensive reference point and De Gea’s experience in goal. And in the meantime, the English are thinking of Ansu Fati for the future. The Barcelona jewel could only be sacrificed in the face of a monstrous offer, but United are serious. 

Form Guide

Barcelona WWWWWW

After their previous match, in which they won 0-1 against Villarreal in La Liga, Barcelona will be looking to continue their winning streak and hope for more of the same.

During that match, Barcelona had 47% possession of the ball and 6 shots on goal, with 4 of those shots finding the back of the net. 11 shots were taken by Villarreal, but only 2 of them were on target.

In the most recent games that Barcelona has played, it has become increasingly common to see a score of zero in the scoreline.

If you take their previous six matches leading up to this one, a bet on both teams scoring would have been a losing one in as many as five of those matches before this one.

Manchester United WWWWDW

In their most recent match, Manchester United defeated Leeds United by a score of 0-2 to earn a win in the Premier League.

During that match, Manchester United held possession of the ball for 67% of the game and had 11 shots on goal, five of which were on target. On the other hand, Leeds United had 16 shots on goal, with only six of them hitting the target.

Manchester United has scored a total of 14 goals over the course of their previous half-dozen matches (five away and three at home). Additionally, Manchester United has scored a goal in each and every one of those matches. In the course of those matches, they have allowed four opponents to score into their own net.


Barcelona vs Manchester United Predicted XI

Barcelona Predicted XI: Ter Stegen; Kounde, Araujo, Christensen, Alba; Pedri, De Jong, Kessie; Raphinha, Lewandowski, Gavi.

Manchester United Predicted XI: De Gea; Dalot, Varane, Shaw, Malacia; Casemiro, Fred; Sancho, Fernandes, Rashford; Weghorst.


When they go up against Manchester United, who might have trouble finding the back of the net, we believe that Barcelona will have the ability to generate scoring opportunities that will allow them to score more than once.

As a result, we anticipate Barcelona to emerge victorious with a score of 2-0 when the match is over.

Juventus vs Nantes | Europa League (16.02.2023, 21:00)

Juventus host Nantes at the Allianz Stadium in the first leg of the Europa League playoffs. The Bianconeri finished in third place in Group H of the Champions League, behind Benfica and PSG but ahead of Maccabi Haifa. While the French finished second in Group G of the Europa League, behind Freiburg. Both teams are coming off three consecutive victories: Juve eliminated Lazio in the Italian Cup and beat Salernitana and Fiorentina in the league. Rabiot scored a 1-0 victory over the Viola in the previous round. Nantes, on the other hand, beat Ajaccio, Angers (in the French Cup), and Lorient 1-0 on the last day of Ligue 1.

Bianconeri are in ninth place in the championship standings, after the 15-point penalty (pending the appeal) and -1 from seventh place. Thirteenth in Ligue 1 with 28 points after 23 games, Kombouare will try to find a reaction in Europe after a not too exciting schedule in the league. Allegri launched a trident against Fiorentina (Di Maria, Vlahovic, and Chiesa) and may consider confirming him in the Europa League as well. Bonucci should recover; Pogba is still in the pits and won’t be available again for 20–25 days. There are few training doubts for Nantes, who should rely on the usual 5-4-1 with Guessand as an offensive reference and a solid midfield in front of the defense. The only “recent” precedent bodes well for the Bianconeri, who met Nantes in the 1996 Champions League, the last one raised in Rome in Juventus history. 

Form Guide

Juventus WDLWWW

The goal for Juventus will be to achieve the same result as their 1-0 victory over Fiorentina in the Serie A match.

During that match, Juventus had a 44% possession rate and 7 shots on goal, with 3 of those shots finding their intended target. Fiorentina had 11 shots on goal, but only 2 were successful in hitting the target.

In their last six matches, Massimiliano Allegri’s Juventus team has scored 10 goals by hitting the back of the net. They have had a total of 6 goals scored against them in those same games, while their opponents have only managed to score 6.


Nantes will be looking to build on their recent success in Ligue 1, where they defeated FC Lorient 1-0 in their most recent matchup.

During that game, Nantes held 49 percent of the possession and had 13 shots on goal, with six of them finding the net. Lorient, the team they were playing against, had 9 shots on goal, with 5 of them landing in the target area.

Nantes and their opponents have scored a remarkably low number of goals in each of their previous six matches against each of their previous six opponents. The overall average number of goals scored per game during that stretch is a meager 1.17, with Les Canaris scoring an average of 0.67 goals per game on their own. 

Juventus vs Nantes Predicted XI

Juventus Predicted XI: Szczesny; Danilo, Bremer, Sandro; Cuadrado, Fagioli, Locatelli, Rabiot, Kostic; Di Maria; Vlahovic.

Nantes Predicted XI: Lafont; Centonze, Castelletto, Girotto, Hadjam; Sissoko, Moutoussamy; Blas, Mollett, Guessand; Delort.


When they take on Nantes, who may have trouble scoring themselves, our opinion is that Juventus has a good chance of getting the goals they need to win. Nantes, on the other hand, may have trouble finding the back of the net.

As a result, Juventus emerges victorious from this contest with a respectable victory by the score of 2-0.
