It’s crunch time in the Champions League this week and below you’ll find our preview of the most important matches for the final matchday of the group stages!
RB Leipzig vs Manchester United
Tuesday 8th December 2020, 20:00, BT Sport 2
Manchester United have made life difficult for themselves if they are to progress after a 1-3 home defeat to PSG in their last fixture. PSG, Man Utd and Leipzig all have nine points, and the Red Devils need to avoid a loss in Leipzig to progress. They will be comforted by the fact they thrashed their opponents 5-0 at Old Trafford meaning they could hold the mental edge. Will Manchester United join fellow English sides Chelsea, Manchester City and Liverpool in the last 16?
Betting tip: A draw at 11/4.
Real Madrid vs Borussia Mönchengladbach
Wednesday 9th December, 20:00, BT Sport 3
What most expected to be a simple group for Real Madrid has turned into anything but for the 13-time winners. They are in third place behind their opponents and Shakhtar Donetsk to whom they suffered two defeats. A win will guarantee their passage through, but a loss will mean they are out. They have recovered from the brink numerous times in the Champions League in recent years, can they do it again?
Betting tip: 2 or 3 total goals at 21/20.
Inter Milan vs Shakhtar Donetsk
Wednesday 9th December, 20:00, BT Sport
Inter have struggled once more in the Champions League and will need a bit of fortune to go their way if they are to qualify. They managed their first win in the groups during their previous match against Borussia Mönchengladbach which was a 2-3 away victory. Inter need a win against Donetsk and hope the other game doesn’t end in a draw. Shakhtar are guaranteed to make the knockout rounds if they manage another surprise win. The Ukrainians stunned Real Madrid twice in the group and will be confident of also beating their opponents in this one.
Betting tip: Over 4 total goals at 13/8.
RB Salzburg vs Atletico Madrid
Wednesday 9th December, 20:00, BT Sport ESPN
Atletico are another team that have made things difficult for themselves in their group. They could only get two draws against Lokomotiv Moscow and conceded a late penalty resulting in a goal to Bayern Munich during a 1-1 draw — a match in which they dominated. However, all they have to do is avoid defeat away to Salzburg, and they’re through. Salzburg gave their opponents a lot of trouble when they faced each other in Madrid and will believe they can grab an unlikely win at home to Atleti considering that they can play without pressure. Salzburg are looking to make the knockout rounds of the Champions League for the first time in their history.
Betting tip: Atletico Madrid to win currently at 23/20.
