UEFA Champions League 17/18 Round of 16 Predictions

Manchester United vs Sevilla

Competition : UEFA Champions League
Date : 14 March 2018
Kick-off : 3:45am (GMT +8)
On aggregate : 0 – 0
Venue : Old Trafford (Manchester)

A stalemate in the first leg means both teams still have everything to play for in this upcoming fixture. The last time the two teams met was back in 2013, where Sevilla beat United 3-1 at Old Trafford. De Gea, who was incredibly key to saving United from a first leg loss, is currently in limbo as United is stalling talks on his new contract. One thing to note is that both teams have the exact same form in their last five games, 3 wins, 1 loss and 1 draw. Sevilla do, however, have a slight advantage in this as a score-draw will see them go through on away goals. Mourinho will have to employ an attacking strategy for the game in order for them to secure a win in this leg.

Tips: Draw, Sevilla to go through with away goal advantage

 

 

Barcelona vs Chelsea

Competition : UEFA Champions League
Date : 15 March 2018
Kick-off : 3:45am (GMT +8)
On aggregate : 1 – 1
Venue : Camp Nou (Barcelona)

Conte goes into this game with plenty to prove after his lackluster performance against City. Despite Barcelona-Chelsea matches having a history of being draws at full-time, Chelsea have emerged as winners twice – once in 2015, when the Blues won through penalties, and the other in 2012, when the London side triumphed at Stamford Bridge 1-0. Chelsea also holds an edge over Barcelona as they only have one more match to play whilst the Barca has two more before the tie. Even though Barcelona has an away goal advantage, Chelsea can try to nick a win if they choose to play with a centre-forward.

Tips: Barcelona to win 2/5
