Benfica vs PSG – PSG

PSG are flying this season and are yet to lose a game in any competition. They have been in clinical form with their start studded front three firing on all cylinders so far this season and it is easy to see why they are among the favourites to win the Champions League outright (best price 11/2).

Benfica will be no walkover though; they currently sit top of the Portuguese league and are also yet to lose a game. They have won both of their opening Champions League games too, beating Juventus 2-1 in Turin in their last fixture.

They continued that form into the league the following weekend, demolishing Maritimo 5-0 and they will be coming into this fixture full of confidence. However, we think PSG will have too much star power to overcome and they will come out as winners. Benfica may score against the Parisians but Messi and co should dominate, so PSG to win and is the play here.

Real Madrid vs Shakhtar Donetsk – Real Madrid 

The reigning champions have had a good start to the season, they are yet to lose in both the league and in Europe and are yet to even concede in Europe. The same can’t be said in the league as they haven’t managed to keep a clean sheet yet. As well as this, they have been involved in low scoring games all season and we can see the same continuing when Shakhtar Donetsk visit the Spanish capital. 

Shakhtar Donetsk sit top of the Ukrainian Premier League and are still yet to lose. They have been excellent in the Champions League too, beating Leipzig 4-1 away and drawing with Celtic last time out so they will be no push overs when they visit the Bernabeu. Despite this, we think Real Madrid have too much quality and will come out as easy victors.

Man City vs FC Copenhagen – Man City 

Man City come into this fixture off the back of a demolition in the Manchester Derby and will be brimming with confidence. They have an Erling Haaland in their ranks that is scoring at unprecedented levels, so it is hard to see anything but a Man City win here. 

FC Copenhagen really haven’t had a good start to their season. They sit 11th in the league, with five wins and six losses and are yet to win in the Champions League. They approach this game in poor form after losing three of their last five and were turned over 3-0 by Dortmund in their opening Champions League fixtures. A Man City win is the obvious outcome here.

Sevilla vs Borussia Dortmund – Dortmund 

Sevilla are another team who have had a very poor start to the season. They sit 17th in La Liga and have only won one game all season. They also sit bottom of their group in Europe being battered 4-0 at home by City and drawing 0-0 away at Copenhagen. 

Dortmund are in a much better position than their Spanish opponents. They sit 4th in the Bundesliga and have looked good in the Champions League. They were dominant vs Copenhagen in their opening fixture and were unlucky to not come away with any points on their visit to Manchester.

They haven’t been in the best form of late, losing three of their last five, and they will be looking for a result on their visit to Spain to put this right. We think with Sevilla’s terrible start to the season and Dortmund’s European form in mind, the German team win this one.
