Atletico Madrid vs. Olympiakos

Atletico Madrid is in perfect form to dominate its upcoming match against Olympiakos. The squad is performing well in the domestic league despite trailing the current board leader, Real Madrid. Nevertheless, it remains as one of the top contenders for the title.

 

In terms of its performance in the current Champions League, the squad currently dominates Group A with nine (9) points. However, the football betting favorite cannot afford to be overconfident since Olympiakos is a strong force, which they have to reckon with.

 

Olympiakos has six (6) points under its belt and is the first team in the group to beat them during the Group Stage kick off.

 

Prediction: 2-1

 

Malmo FF vs. Juventus

Juventus is faced with the opportunity to secure its place in the next stage of the tournament via outlasting the struggling Malmo.

 

The Italian outfit is currently tied with Olympiakos with six (6) points and considering the quality of opponents that they have to deal with, it is evident that Juve has a better chance of winning.

 

As for Malmo, the squad could use this situation as a stepping stone to its future European campaign. Currently, the club sits at the rock bottom part of Group A –accumulating a mere three (3) points. It has only won once since the Group Stage started and had to endure three (3) losses during its last four (4) matches.

 

Prediction: 1-3
