Christophe Galtier’s Paris Saint-Germain are back from two consecutive defeats, the first of which cost them elimination from the French Cup 2-1 at Olympique Marseille and the second in the league against Monaco 3-1.

The last precedent dates back to April 13, 2021, when, precisely in Paris, Bayern won 1-0 but failed to avoid elimination in the quarter-finals after losing at home in the first leg 3-2. PSG seeks retribution after being defeated 1-0 in the Lisbon final behind closed doors on August 23, 2020, the year of the COVID-19 pandemic.

There are 11 precedents, all in the Champions League, with 6 wins for Paris Saint-Germain and 5 for Bayern Munich. The X sign has never occurred in the past. PSG arrive at this appointment after a series of 2 defeats between the French Cup and Ligue 1, and in the last 5 official matches, there have also been 2 wins and 1 draw. Other music at Bayern Munich indicated that three victories in a row between the Bundesliga and the German Cup arrived after an empty passage of three draws in a row in the league to the resumption of hostilities after the World Cup and winter break.

  • Bayern Munich has scored in both the first and second halves of their last three games.

AC Milan vs Tottenham Hotspur | Champions League

14/02/2023 20:00

Prediction: 1-1

The Champions League starts again, and the first Italian team to take the field for the first leg of the round of 16 will be AC Milan, who will face Antonio Conte’s Tottenham on Tuesday, February 14. The Rossoneri, who passed the group in second place with 10 points, three behind Chelsea, come into the match hoping that their latest victory will have averted the heavy crisis that began in conjunction with the return from the break for the World Cup. Not even Tottenham are in perfect condition; they are fifth in the Premier League but capable of qualifying for the second round in the Champions League as first in their group with 11 points, one more than Eintracht Frankfurt.

Milan regained victory in the last game played by interrupting a long crisis. The 1-0 win over Torino helped Pioli’s team recover from four straight defeats, including two in a row against Inter, once in the Italian Super Cup, and heavy knockouts by Sassuolo and Lazio.In 2023, the Rossoneri conceded only two wins, five defeats, and two draws. Tottenham, on the other hand, lost 4-1 to Leicester in the final round of the championship after three consecutive wins (1-0 against Manchester City, 3-0 against Preston in the FA Cup, and 1-0 against Fulham).Conte was overwhelmed after taking the lead.

  • After the change of formation and the switch to three in defense, Milan played two games and put two under 2.5 on the scoresheet.
  • Under 2.5 goals have been scored in four of Tottenham’s last six games.
  • Four of Tottenham’s six Champions League matches ended with fewer than three goals on the final scoreboard.
  • Spurs away in the Champions League have scored in just one out of three games.
  • Milan have only scored three goals in their last five games.

They scored two or more goals for the sixth straight game. Dortmund got to the Champions League knockout stage despite having the fewest points among the 16 teams that advanced (nine). They won two, tied three, and lost one.

Borussia Dortmund have been on fire lately, while Chelsea have regressed. The FA Cup is over, and the Blues sit eighth in the Premier League. Graham Potter’s team has only won one of their last eight matches and scored two goals in their last four. In their most recent match, away against West Ham, they drew 1-1. Due to Chelsea’s large winter transfer window, striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will miss the rest of the Champions League. Ngolo Kante and Mateo Kovacic of Chelsea are out due to injuries.

Club Brugge vs Benfica | Champions League

15/02/2023 20:00

Prediction: 0-1

Belgian champions Club Brugge play Benfica at the Jan Breydel Stadium in a thrilling UEFA Champions League round of 16. The home team surprised everyone by finishing second in Group B with three victories, two ties, and one loss. Club Brugge finished the group stage with 11 points, one behind FC Porto. Brugge fans were on cloud nine in the first part of the season, but a poor run in the Jupiler Pro League plummeted them to fourth place. The hosts are winless in their last 10 league matches, drawing seven and losing two. The team has drawn five of their last six matches and cannot finish the job.

Club Brugge will now face Benfica, who are having a great season. The Eagles opened the season with a 28-match unbeaten streak in all competitions, including all of their UEFA Champions League qualifying round and group stage fixtures. Benfica won four and drew two of their six matches to lead a group with PSG and Juventus. They tied PSG in Lisbon and Paris at 1-1. They lost a Portuguese Cup penalty shootout to Braga on Thursday.

Arsenal vs Manchester City | Champions League

15/02/2023 20:00

Prediction: 1-1

On Wednesday evening, the top two teams in the English Premier League will compete against each other. Arsenal, who are now in first place, will play host to Manchester City after gaining three points over the weekend and having a game in hand. Should City come out on top, they will reclaim their position atop the Premier League standings based on their superior goal differential. The margin between City and the Gunners at the top of the table has shrunk significantly as City has been gaining ground. On Wednesday, will there be new leaders at the top of the league?

Arsenal enters this match having not triumphed in either of their previous three matches. They were eliminated from the FA Cup in the fourth round by Manchester City, then went on to lose at Everton, and on Saturday they only managed to draw at home with Brentford. Only one goal has been scored in each of those three games, although eight goals were scored in the three games before those three. Arsenal has not yet suffered a defeat at home in any of the league’s games this season. They have won eight of their ten games at the Emirates, but the last two and three of those games were tied.Since they suffered their last defeat at home in the Premier League, they have played 13 home league matches. That match took place in April of last year in Brighton, and a goal was scored by recently acquired player Leandro Trossard for the Seagulls in that contest.

This will be Manchester City’s second trip to North London this month, and they will be looking to improve on their performance from their 1-0 setback to Tottenham on February 5. They got themselves back on track after that loss with a 3-1 victory over Aston Villa at home on Sunday. City was defeated at Manchester United after losing their previous two Premier League matches away from home.They have not suffered three consecutive defeats in the top flight since the year 2020. This season in the Premier League, City has only won five of their ten matches played away from home and has lost three of those matches, including one played at Liverpool. However, they do score in a steady manner when playing away in league matches, and they have only failed to do so twice in the last 14.

  • Arsenal has failed to win any of its last three games.
  • Over the course of their last three games, Arsenal has managed to score only once.
  • Manchester City has triumphed three times in their last four league matches.
  • Arsenal have been defeated by Manchester City in 13 of the past 14 matches that have been played between the two teams.
  • It wasn’t until 2015 that Arsenal last triumphed at home in a league game against Manchester City.

16/02/2023 17:45

Prediction: 2-0

Super-challenge in the double confrontation of the 16th round of the Europa League, which sees Xavi’s Barcelona opposite Erik ten Hag’s Manchester United. The former finished third in their Champions League group and was therefore relegated to the second European cup in order of importance, while the latter finished second in Group F of the Europa League despite having the same number of points as Real Sociedad, but to make up the difference, they conceded an extra goal. Barça, still in command of La Liga, is back from yet another success in the league: 0-1 at Villarreal with a goal from Pedri, while United are third in the Premier League, 5 points behind leaders Arsenal, and won 0-2 in Leeds in the last match with goals from Marcus Rashford and Alejandro Garnacho.

Juventus vs Nantes | Europa League

16/02/2023 21:00

Prediction: 2-0

Massimiliano Allegri’s Juventus returns to the continental arena from the Europa League and faces the French of Nantes at the Allianz Stadium in Troino, after exiting the Champions League in November with a melancholy third place in their group thanks to a better goal difference than Maccabi Haifa.The Bianconeri are coming off their league victory against Fiorentina, which they won 1-0 thanks to Adrien Rabiot’s goal. Nantes, on the other hand, finished second in the first phase of the Europa League, forcing them to play the 16th final in the away leg.Coach Antoine Kombouare’s yellow-and-green players are returning from a 1-0 home win against Lorient in the last round of the championship with a goal from Ludovic Blas.

Juventus is coming off three consecutive victories between the championship and the Italian Cup, and let’s add to this the fact that they are once again back to having unbeaten goals in each of these matches. Nantes has also won the last three games played between the league and the French Cup, but the national cup victory came only after a penalty shootout.

Juventus faced Nantes in Turin in 1996, the year after winning the Champions Cup in Rome against Ajax, and the Bianconeri won 2-0 in the then Delle Alpi match.

  • Juventus are coming off 3 consecutive victories in the championship and the cup without conceding a goal.
  • In all of Juventus’ last 7 matches, at least one goal has always been scored during the first half of the game.
  • There have been 6 Under 2.5s in a row in Nantes’ last 6 official matches
  • No goals have occurred in 10 of Nantes’ last 11 matches, meaning one or both teams didn’t score.
