Champions League Preview 12th 13th Feb

Logo uefa 2012

The Champions League is back and we are now in the knockout round of the competition. Just 16 clubs remain, and eight of those get their quest for the trophy underway across Tuesday and Wednesday. We have two games on each day, and we get to see the current holders Real Madrid and one of the favourites to win the title this season PSG.

Manchester United vs PSG

When this game was announced, the majority of people thought it would be a comfortable success for PSG. However, since then they have lost their best player Neymar to injury, and Manchester United have surged back to life under new boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The bookmakers cannot split these two, and rightly so, although being the home team there is a little more pressure on Manchester United. They need something to take with them to France, and that should force them to attack PSG to try and score goals. That is when United are at their best, and that could be enough to give them the win in this one.

Roma vs Porto

Roma have been handed a winnable tie here and they will want to show that Italian football is much more than just Juventus and no one else. They are a capable team on their day, and would prove to be tough opposition in the coming weeks, should they get through to the next round. That is exactly what I think they will do, starting with a win at home in the first leg.

Tottenham vs Dortmund

One of three ties that puts an English club against a German club, although without two key attacking players, Tottenham are going to struggle to score goals. The loss of Harry Kane was a big blow, but to lose Dele Alli a week later was cruel.

Dortmund are having a great season in Germany, and they are a far better team than the one that was beaten by Spurs on two occasions in this competition last season. Tottenham have no choice but to attack here, although they do not have the quality they normally do and I could see Dortmund nicking a goal on the break and winning this one.

Ajax vs Real Madrid

A young and improving team in Ajax take on the team that have dominated this competition over recent years, Real Madrid. They are the current holders, and won’t go down without a fight despite this team being nowhere near as good as the one they had last season.

Ajax will give it their all, but ultimately they lack a bit of experience here, and that can be the difference maker. Real Madrid are slowly coming to life, and they can gain even more confidence by picking up a big away win here.
