Predictions 25.10.2022

Red Bull Salzburg vs Chelsea | Champions League

25/10/2022 16:45

Prediction: 0-1

Salzburg and Chelsea are playing for first place in the standings and a good share of qualification. At the moment, the Blues are ahead of everyone with 7 points, while the Austrians follow immediately behind with 6. We start with the Red Bull club that has lost only one game in the season but still has none in Europe, where it is proving absolutely up to a very complex group. The boys led by Matthias Jaissle have in fact obtained three out of four draws in this group, one of which is against the English team at Stamford Bridge. At the Red Bull Arena, however, the offensive figures are not as exciting as in past years.

Chelsea have fixed a group that had become complicated after the first two games and are now in the lead, but Graham Potter’s team needs another success to be practically certain that they are in the round of 16. In Austria, it will not be easy, but the Londoners are in clear growth and have not lost in eight games, even if in the last two in the league with Brentford and Manchester United, only two draws. 


  • There have been fewer than 2.5 goals scored in any of RB Salzburg’s past four home Champions League matches.
  • In their Champions League encounters, RB Salzburg has allowed an average of 0.75 goals to be scored against them.
  • In their most recent away Champions League encounters, Chelsea have given up a goal at a rate of 0.50 per game on average.

Benfica vs Juventus | Champions League

25/10/2022 19:00

Prediction: 2-0

Benfica host Juventus in the fifth round of the Champions League. To continue hoping for the second round, the Bianconeri cannot miss the victory, given that the group standings see PSG and Benfica in first place with 8 points each, while Juve and Maccabi are last with 3 points each. Indeed, after two consecutive defeats against Milan and Maccabi in Haifa, Juventus resumed in the derby against Torino (1-0) and, for the first time in this championship, won 4-0 against Empoli. But more will be needed to beat the Schmidt team in Lisbon, as the Portuguese have not yet lost a single game this season. 


  • SL Benfica have not suffered a defeat in any of their previous nine matches played in the Champions League.
  • SL Benfica have gone 19 of their past 22 matches in the Champions League without suffering a loss.
  • SL Benfica have gone 13 of their past 14 matches in the Champions League without suffering a loss.
  • Six of the last seven Champions League games that SL Benfica played at home ended in clean sweeps for the club.
  • The current losing streak for Juventus FC is at six games, with only one victory to show for it (Champions League).

Borussia Dortmund vs Manchester City | Champions League

25/10/2022 19:00

Prediction: 1-1

Borussia Dortmund hosts Manchester City in the fifth round of the Champions League at Signal Iduna Park. A high-level challenge between the first two of the group: Guardiola’s team is already qualified for the second round, with 10 points in the 4 games played so far, as is Dortmund, in second position with 7 points. The exceptional average of the English team, with 11 goals scored and only 1 immediately in the group. City are back from a 3-1 victory against Brighton in the last round of the Premier League, while on the penultimate day they lost 1-0 against Liverpool. Guardiola is trying to catch Arteta in the league, where Arsenal are two points ahead. Borussia Dortmund have slipped to fifth place in the Bundesliga.

City remain favorites, but after a 0-0 draw against Copenhagen, they may slow down against Dortmund, knowing they have already qualified. Much will depend on Haaland, who returned decisively with the brace that opened the match against Brighton in the Premier League and is also ready to decide the match against Borussia in the Champions League. 


  • In the Champions League, Manchester City has not lost against Borussia Dortmund in their last three meetings with the German club.
  • Nine of Manchester City’s most recent ten matches have ended in a win for the club (Champions League).

PSG vs Maccabi Haifa | Champions League

25/10/2022 19:00

Prediction: 0-3

There are all the conditions for PSG to celebrate their arithmetic access to the knockout stages of the Champions League. In fact, by winning against Maccabi Haifa (beaten in the first leg 1-3), Galtier’s team would secure one of the first two places in the group, which now sees them excel with the same points (8) as Benfica. The difference in technical terms between the two teams (PSG and Maccabi Haifa) is clear, but we have seen how the Israeli team is not only not the “Cinderella” on duty but also, as the PSG within the group, has had some moments of decline or discontinuity. 

In this context, for the Israelis of Maccabi, it will be an unlikely undertaking, also because the game, for PSG, is worth a lot and cannot be blocked. penalty, even with a draw, the risk of playing for the qualification in the last match in Turin. For Maccabi, on the other hand, the concrete goal is clearly that of the Europa League, which became possible after the victory against Juve, where the team played a very good first half.


  • In each of their past 12 matches in the Champions League, Paris Saint-Germain have scored one or more goals.
  • Maccabi Haifa is giving up an average of 1.50 goals per game to their opponents in those games (Champions League).
  • Away from home in the Champions League, Maccabi Haifa has given up an average of 1.80 goals per game.
