Prediction: 2-1

The second finalist of the 2023/2024 Champions League will be determined on Wednesday, May 8, 2024, at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu in the match between Real Madrid and Bayern Munich. Following an exciting first 90 minutes at the Allianz Arena, the match ended in a 2-2 draw. In Madrid, the teams will restart from the same scoreline, with Vinicius Junior scoring twice for Real Madrid and Leroy Sané and Harry Kane finding the net for Bayern Munich.

Carlo Ancelotti’s Real Madrid recently clinched the La Liga title with a 3-0 victory at home against Cadiz in the last round. On the other hand, Bayern Munich will arrive in Spain after suffering a 3-1 defeat in their last Bundesliga match against Stuttgart.

  • Real Madrid and Bayern Munich have seen over 2.5 goals in their last 6 consecutive official head-to-head matches.
  • Both teams have scored in the last 5 head-to-head matches between Real Madrid and Bayern Munich.
  • Bayern Munich’s last 7 away games in league and cup competitions have witnessed goals and over 2.5 goals.

Club Brugge vs Fiorentina | Conference League

08/05/2024 17:45

Prediction: 1-1

Bruges and Fiorentina will clash in the semi-final second leg of the Conference League on Wednesday. Fiorentina holds the advantage after securing a 3-2 victory in the first leg, allowing them to progress with either a draw or a win. Meanwhile, Bruges, in excellent form, must secure a win to advance to the final. A two-goal difference would see them through, while a one-goal difference would lead to extra time and possibly penalties.

For Fiorentina, reaching the Conference League final for the second consecutive year is their last objective of the season after exiting the semi-final of the Italian Cup and falling short of European qualification in the league with an eighth-place finish.

  • The first leg ended 3-2 in favor of Fiorentina.
  • Bruges has seen over 2.5 goals in their last five matches leading up to this encounter.
  • Fiorentina has been involved in four consecutive matches with over 2.5 goals.
  • Fiorentina has conceded at least two goals in three of their last four matches, while Bruges has scored at least two goals in each of their last seven matches.
  • The first leg witnessed a total of 36 shots on target, with 13 on target.

Bayer Leverkusen vs Roma | Europa League

09/05/2024 20:00

Prediction: 3-1

In the second leg of the Europa League semi-final, Roma will host Leverkusen at the BayArena. The tie currently leans heavily in favor of Xabi Alonso’s Leverkusen team, who secured a 2-0 victory at the Olimpico last week. Roma now face the difficult task of overturning the deficit with a perfect performance and a stroke of luck, needing to win by at least two goals against a Leverkusen side that remains unbeaten this season. Leverkusen, who defeated Roma in the semi-final last year, are also coming off a demanding match against Juventus and have another crucial fixture against Atalanta over the weekend. Despite their lead, Leverkusen must not underestimate the threat posed by Roma, who have nothing to lose in this encounter.

Florian Wirtz and his teammates continue their impressive form, recently securing a 5-1 victory in the Bundesliga and extending their unbeaten streak. The German champions are on the brink of reaching Dublin and seeking redemption for last year’s elimination. However, in football, anything is possible, and Leverkusen cannot afford to take the final for granted.

  • With the victory against Eintracht Frankfurt, Bayer Leverkusen achieved forty-eight consecutive positive results.
  • In the Europa League, however, they haven’t shown the same solidity as in the league, keeping five clean sheets in eleven games played so far.
  • On the other hand, Roma have been held without a goal on only three occasions out of the thirteen matches played so far in the Europa League.
  • In the league, however, Roma have consistently found the back of the net in their last five matches (and in sixteen of the last seventeen).

Atalanta vs Marseille | Europa League

09/05/2024 20:00

Prediction: 2-0

With at least ninety minutes remaining, Atalanta stands on the brink of their first-ever European final as they face Marseille at the Gewiss Stadium. The Nerazzurri are filled with anticipation for a match that could go down as one of their finest in front of their home supporters. Atalanta enters the encounter after a comeback victory against Salernitana, where their top scorers, Scamacca and Koopmeiners, found the net once again. This win marks their third consecutive victory in the league and adds optimism ahead of their clash against the French side.

Marseille, on the other hand, exhibit a contrasting form at home and away, having scored the fewest points on the road in the entire league. Gasset’s team has showcased a “double face,” particularly evident in Europe, where they have relied on their performances at the Velodrome to progress through each round. In the first leg, the match was closely contested, with opportunities for both sides, but Marseille will need to surpass themselves significantly to replicate their intensity in France.

Despite starting from a tied situation, Atalanta appears to have the upper hand, especially with Scamacca in top form leading their offensive line. However, they will have to do without key defenders Toloi, Holm, and Kolasinac. Nevertheless, Atalanta boasts an attacking department capable of making the difference against Marseille’s defense.

  • This round against Marseille represents Atalanta’s second-ever European semi-final.
  • Marseille’s defense has held up well in their last three European matches, conceding only three goals in total.
  • The second leg of Atalanta’s match against Sporting witnessed a cautious first half with few total shots on target.
  • In their last three home games against Empoli, Fiorentina, and Liverpool, Atalanta have conceded only one goal from open play.

Olympiacos vs Aston Villa | Conference League

09/05/2024 20:00

Prediction: 1-3

Olympiakos Piraeus and Aston Villa are set to clash in the second leg of the Europa Conference League semi-final at the Georgios Karaiskáki Stadium in Athens on Thursday, May 9. The Greeks hold a significant advantage after securing a 4-2 victory in the first leg played last week at Villa Park in Birmingham. To maintain their top form, Olympiakos opted not to participate in the last round of the championship. A win for Olympiakos could see them become the second Greek team to reach the final of a UEFA competition, following Panathinaikos in the European Cup in 1970/71.

Unai Emery’s Aston Villa enters this match on the back of a defeat in their last league outing, losing 1-0 against Brighton & Hove Albion.

  • Olympiakos has won their last four home games this season in league and cup competitions.
  • Aston Villa has not won in their last three games this season, suffering two defeats and managing one draw.
  • Aston Villa has lost their last two Conference League games played away.
  • Both teams have scored in Aston Villa’s last three games in the Conference League.
  • Over 2.5 goals have occurred in Aston Villa’s last four games in the Conference League.
