UEFA Champions League Round of 16 Games with Predictions
Napoli vs Barcelona
Napoli has been struggling in their domestic since the removal their former coach Carlo Ancelotti. They managed to make it to the UEFA Champions League round of 16 first leg after beating Liverpool in the group stage. They will be hosting La Liga leaders Barcelona in front of their home fans with the hope of grabbing all three points.
The Neapolitans have been showing signs of improvement of late, but we can assure you that they will be able to win Barca. Genaro Gattuso and his troops are tough to beat at home, and we do believe they will give their visitors a time.
Barcelona on the other hand has been doing well they were able to beat Elber in the La Liga with Lionel Messi scoring four goals. We are betting on both teams to score since the two teams are scoring sides. A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be Arkadiusz Milik. Milik has netted 12 goals in all competitions so far this term. Napoli defense will have Lionel Messi to worry for.
Chelsea vs Bayern Munich
Chelsea finished second in their group to make it to the UEFA Champions League round of 16. A place in Champions League quarter-finals will be at stake as they host Bayern Munchen at their Stanford Bridge. The Blues will be playing without French international Ngolo Kante who sustained an injury in their league game against Manchester United that ended 2-0. They have unbeaten in the previous five games in the Champions League but, can they extend the victory.
The German on the other hand have been producing excellent displays in their domestic league and the Champions League as well. A close encounter is on the cards in the first leg, and we believe that they stand a better chance in winning the game. A man to watch in the away team will be Champions League top-scorer Robert Lewandowski who has been in top form right now.
