There’s no doubt that the visitors are the favourites in this fixture. We believe they will be able to earn three points in this match without any difficulties. Even though the hosts have been focusing on their defensive line and have conceded only two goals in three matches, we think Barcelona will score at least three goals.
Madrid’s domestic form this season is nothing but shaky. But Zidane often gets his team highly charged up while going against quality oppositions. They had already defeated the likes of Manchester United and Barcelona over two legs. They are most likely to repeat the feat on Tuesday evening as well.
We can expect Peter Bosz’s side to respond in a positive manned with things not going as expected in recent weeks. To their favor, they are facing a side short on experience and quality.
It is hard to see anyone winning points out of Manchester City at the moment with the team looking in sublime touch in all aspects of the game. They had already beaten the likes of Liverpool and Chelsea without conceding this season and are no stranger to tricky fixtures.
Napoli’s current form can be considered superb and they are coming in good spirits after winning five matches on the bounce. But I am afraid that they are no match to this free scoring Citizens and could easily end up at the losing end.
As we mentioned earlier, Liverpool have a point to prove after repeated failures in away games this season. Moreover, their recent European away record need an improvement with 2 wins coming off the last 14 road games, drew 7 and lost 5.
Maribor are way behind in having quality players in their ranks. But, one must expect them to be highly motivated in welcoming a strong Premier League club. Their history in European nights show that they have a real chance here, but it remained to be seen if they repeat the feet against Chelsea back in 2014.
Despite all the facts that putting Liverpool in a negative light, these are the kind of matches they must win if they are to make it out of the group stage. Klopp is the kind of manager who can respond under pressure. Therefore, it will be a entertaining affair at Maribor, but punters must expect the Reds to run away with a close victory.
