Real Madrid - Champions League

Match Date: 26 November 2014 (local time)

 

Real Madrid vs. Basel

Sports betting odds point to Real Madrid as the heavy favorite not only of Group B, but also as the winner of this prestigious tournament.

 

Since the competition started, the Madridistas have managed to keep a clean slate. Unscathed from any attempts of its eager opponents to bring them down, the club has already secured its spot in the next stage of the competition. With twelve (12) points under its belt, definitely, defeat, has no place within the Los Blancos’ camp.

 

Basel, on the other hand should prepare for an impending defeat. Considering Real Madrid’s almost perfect form, the best result that the squad could pull off is an even steven finish. Yet, even this scenario seems to be a far-flung reality for Basel since its opponent is eager to go for the kill.

 

Prediction: 5-1

 

Ludogorets Razgrad vs. Liverpool

Several factors will determine Liverpool’s chances of advancing towards the next stage of the Champions League. Other than perfecting its form, Basel should also lose to Real Madrid.

 

Liverpool may find it hard to qualify should Basel nail a draw since the latter can create a buffer zone that will help them avoid a possible fall out in the competition.

 

However, if Basel loses and Liverpool wins against the minnow, Ludogorets, the former can pull off a tie and therefore, increase its chances of moving into the next stage of the tournament.

 

Prediction: 1-2
