MALMO - REAL MADRID
Real will still be without 3 players: Sergio Ramos, Bale and Rodriguez. Also Pepe is out and then the central backs vs Malmo will be Varane and Nacho.
The doubt is in the midfield where Vazquez and Kovacic are fighting for a place in the starting lineup.
Some critiques over Cristiano Ronaldo. The portuguese has already tried 49 shoot attempts and scored only 5 goals. Spanish press has spent some critiques words on this lack in accuracy (actually is not bad, but Ronaldo usually has a much higher shoot attempts/goals ratio).
Malmo has lost 2-0 in Paris in the first round.
Swedish team has a good trend in home matches vs teams of its level but we do not expect surprises here. The skills gap is too wide and we choose AWAY WIN in a match where goals should not be missing.
MALMO: Wiland; Yotun, Carvalho, Bengtsson, Arnason, Tinnerholm; Lewicki, Adu, Berget; Djurdjic, Rosenberg.
REAL MADRID: Navas; Carvajal, Nacho, Varane, Marcelo; Modric, Kroos; Ronaldo, Vazquez, Isco; Benzema.
AWAY WIN + OVER 2.5 (1.60 Matchbook)
SHAKHTAR DONETSK - PSG
Finally Ibrahimovic has come back after the injury and scored in the last two matches played vs Guingamp and Nantes.
Shakhthar hasn't played a home match in Donetsk for long time due to the war in Ukraine.
Shakthar has committed too many defensive mistakes in Madrid and without the banned Stepanenko in the next match, who usually assures quantity in the midfield, ukrainian team will suffer a lot especially when defending.
We like the AWAY WIN but PSG DOUBLE CHANCE is much more safe.
SHAKHTAR DONETSK: Pyatov; Srna, Kucher, Rakitskiy, Azevedo; Malyshev, Fred, Marlos, Taison; Alex Teixeira; Gladkiy.
PSG: Trapp; Van der Wiel, Thiago Silva, David Luiz, Maxwell; Matuidi, Verratti, Thiago Motta; Cavani, Ibrahimović, Di María.
PSG DOUBLE CHANCE (1.21, Sporting Bet)
OVER 1.5 AWAY TEAM (1.90, Sporting Bet)
MANCHESTER UNITED - WOLFSBURG
Red Devils have begun the current season in a good way obtaining several wins and showing a good gamestyle.
The only bad performance till now is the one made in Eindhoven where Manchester United has lost the first Champions League match.
This clash vs Wolfsburg is extremely important for english team.
United can count on the supporters of its stadium: in the last 16 Champions League clashes, United has won 11 times.
Wolfsburg is a good team but surely weaker than the previous season after the transfers of Perisic and De Bruyne.
The new arrivals Kruse and Draxler have been playing good till now but the gamestyle has changed and the offensive manouver is not as brilliant as it was on past.
We choose the HOME WIN.
MANCHESTER UNITED: De Gea, A. Valencia, Smalling, Blind, Darmian, Schneiderlin, B. Schweinsteiger, Mata, Depay, Rooney, Martial.
WOLFSBURG: Benaglio, Träsch, Naldo, Dante, R. Rodriguez, Guilavogui, Arnold, D. Caligiuri, M. Kruse, Draxler, Dost.
HOME WIN (1.78, PaddyPower)
OVER 2.5 (1.75, PaddyPower)
CSKA MOSCOW - PSV EINDHOVEN
PSV has a lot of unavailable players in sight of the next match vs CSKA in Moscow: Willems, Jozefzoon, Koch, Guardado and mainly its striker, Luuk De Jong, the current topscorer in Eredivisie
along with Anwar El Ghazi (Ajax).
CSKA does not have any problem in the offensive side. Seydou Doumbia, after a bad experience in Rome, has started to score again a lot with CSKA jersey.
Russian team is leading the national league and we choose CSKA DOUBLE CHANCE here.
CSKA: Akinfeev; Mário Fernandes, A Berezutski, Ignashevich, Schennikov; Wernbloom, Tošić, Natcho, Dzagoev; Musa, Doumbia.
PSV: Zoet; Brenet, Moreno, Bruma, Arias; Schaars, Hendrix, Pröpper; Lestienne, Locadia, Narsingh.
CSKA DOUBLE CHANCE (1.21, Betfair)
DOUMBIA TO SCORE ANYTIME (2.20, Betfair)
UNDER 1.5 AWAY TEAM (1.28, Betfair)
