Real Madrid's Bale celebrates his goal against Real Valladolid with teammate Marcelo during their Spanish First Division soccer match in Madrid

Real Madrid

Of the past five Champions League fixtures they battled out, Real Madrin were held in a draw just once, were never defeated, and won all the remaining tourneys in the streak. They are currently the Group table’s leaders, earning 13 points from all their matches and scoring staggering 18 goals.

New part of the brood Gareth Bale believes Real Madrid have all the necessary faculties to end a 12-year Champions League title drought as they cruised into the last-16 with a 4-1 win over Galatasaray. Topping the Group B is just one of the several indicators of the football betting favorites’ excellent form this year, and is expected to grow even better with the next rounds to come.

Juventus

The second qualifying place in Group B behind Real Madrid CF is brewing new entrants as Galatasaray and Juventus meet in Istanbul, when only a win will do for the Turkish side, while a draw would be enough for Juve.

Currently placed next to Real Madrid, the Italian club scored six points from all their matches, with a record of W1-D3-L1. Considering the massive club that they are, Juventus unleashed performances that have quite been unsatisfactory. They are highly capable of leading the group, but even attaining the second spot is still a puzzle.

 

Galatasaray

Their next battle in the Group stage will prove crucial to their qualification in the next round. Galatasaray are only two points behind Juventus, and picking up all the three points in their upcoming match would mean that they could already earn berth in the higher stage.

The side’s current record stand at W1-D1-L3, which is good enough to remain above the bottom but is embarrassing when compared to the table leaders’ form.

 

Copenhagen

The Danish squad have only managed to win once and draw once in their Champions League this season, causing little hope of their entrance to the competition’s next rounds. They are currently at the bottom of the group table, after earning only four points and conceding 11 goals.
