There’s always news about what’s going on with the teams, but not all of it is positive. When you bet on soccer, you want to make sure you don’t overlook news that may affect the outcome of your bet, like suspensions and injuries. By betting on positive news, you can set yourself up to win while rooting for your favorite team to succeed! But how do you decide if a piece of news is good or bad? Read this Champions League predictions article to find out more.
- Liverpool to beat Barcelona
Liverpool came from behind to beat Barcelona 3-0 at Anfield, in the first leg of their Champions League semi-final. The Reds were two goals down after 16 minutes when Lionel Messi put Barca ahead before Philippe Coutinho reduced the deficit with a brilliant free-kick. But Liverpool’s victory was complete when Mohamed Salah netted a late brace to seal an emphatic victory.
The Reds have a great record against Spanish opponents and they will fancy their chances of going through the Camp Nou unscathed next week.
It’s been 20 years since Liverpool last reached the final but now they’re just 90 minutes away from making it happen again – this time as holders!
- Tottenham to beat Manchester City
Despite being a comparatively young club, Manchester City have emerged as one of the most dominant teams in English football. They are favorites to win the Premier League this season and will be looking for their second Champions League title in three years. The two-time defending champions were drawn into a tough group with Barcelona, Lyon and Inter Milan. On paper, they should advance from the group stage but it won’t be easy.
Tottenham Hotspur are also favorites to advance from the group-stage but their draw is much more favorable. They were drawn into Group H with PSV Eindhoven, CSKA Moscow and Internazionale Milano.
- Juventus to beat Ajax
Ajax has been a surprise team in the Champions League this year, but they are likely to be beaten by Juventus. Juve has won 18 of their last 20 matches across all competitions, including four wins and a draw in Europe. They have also averaged three goals a game and conceded just 0.7 during that time frame. On the other hand, Ajax have only won five of their last 10 games and conceded an average of two per match. Even if Ajax do win against Juve, they will need to maintain that winning streak for another six games to make it through to the finals. The odds aren’t in their favor, but we’ll be rooting for them!
- Barcelona to beat Liverpool
Liverpool is in the Champions League for the first time since 2009. They were knocked out in the group stages last year, so they’ll be looking to get off to a good start this time around. Barcelona have never lost at Anfield, and Liverpool’s current form is patchy at best, so I think Barcelona will come away with all three points here.
In conclusion, I think it’s important to bet on positive news. Not only will you be betting in your favor, but you’ll also be contributing to a more positive and hopeful future.
