Barcelona- Champions League

Match Date: 25 November 2014 (local time)

 

Apoel Nicosia vs. Barcelona

Apoel Nicosia will be playing for honor’s sake when they welcome the online betting favorite, Barcelona.
With just a point under its belt, it is evident that the club’s chances of advancing to the next stage have already melted. Nevertheless, they can capitalize on the idea that they were able to beat Barcelona once and probably, replicate a similar scenario.

 

But reality hurts. The La Liga giant currently sports an impressive form that cannot be easily destroyed. Moreover, with Lionel Messi being hailed as La Liga’s top scorer, it is impossible to stop the momentum of this talismanic striker.

 

Prediction: 0-2

 

Paris Saint Germain (PSG) vs. Ajax

PSG is keen on collecting the three (3) points against Ajax and progress as Group winner in the next stage of the competition.

 

Accumulating a total of ten (10) points, PSG currently tops the Group F table. Relatively, it sports a high possibility of dominating the match against Ajax. They have the home court advantage and their trusted striker, Zlatan Ibrahimovic is back on the pitch. Ibra’s presence would further strengthen the squad, most especially if combined with the skills and antics of Edinson Cavani.

 

As for Ajax, the visitor, like Apoel Nicosia is hopeful that they will be able to force a stalemate, just like what they did in their previous meeting.

 

Prediction: 3-1
