Champions League Predictions: Round of 16 Previews Second Leg

UEFA Champions League Predictions

The Champions League resumes play this Tuesday and Wednesday with the Round of 16 second leg matches. Follow along with my predictions and previews for each match in the 2014 tournament.

With the second leg of these ties taking place it is looking ever more likely that the two English Premier League clubs playing this week will be dumped out of the Champions League. Both Arsenal and Manchester City are on the road and down 0-2 on aggregate, having both given up crucial away goals to opponents Bayern Munich and Barcelona.

In the other ties Paris Saint Germain can pretty much cruise through the second leg while Atletico Madrid also look likely to advance.

AC Milan v Atletico Madrid Quick Pick

Atletico Madrid has been a welcome surprise to both the Champions League and to the Spanish La Liga. In the first leg of this tie Atletico got a much needed, and deserved, away goal in defeating AC Milan 1-0 at the San Siro.

Neither team has had very great form in recent matches, however, Atletico Madrid is at least coming into Tuesday’s match on the back of a win, which cannot be said of AC Milan.

My pick is for an Atletico Madrid win to see them advance to the quarter finals.

Betting Odds (Bovada):

A. Madrid win: 1.45; Draw: 4.50; Milan win: 7.00

Recent Form: A. Madrid (L, W, W, L, D, W) Milan (L, W, L, W, L, L)

Prediction: Atletico Madrid 2 – 0 AC Milan

 

Bayer Leverkusen v Paris Saint Germain Quick Pick

It is highly unlikely that Bayer Leverkusen will be advancing to the quarter finals. The first leg saw them lose 4-0 at home. Since then they have lost two and drawn one in the German Bundesliga. Meanwhile, Paris Saint Germain has continued to roll with three straight wins in Ligue 1.

My pick is another dominant performance from PSG to see them go through rather easily.

Betting Odds (Bovada):

PSG win: 1.36; Draw: 5.00; B. Leverkusen win: 8.00

Recent Form: PSG (D, W, W, W, W, W) Leverkusen (L, L, L, L, L, D)

Prediction: Paris Saint Germain 3 – 0 Bayer Leverkusen
