Answer Unibet’s four questions
All that stands between you and big payday is four questions. Admittedly they’re pretty tough questions, but we’ve done our best to predict the right answers here!
Chelsea vs Bayern Munich – What will be the correct score?
FST predicts: 2-1 Bayern Munich
Chelsea are firm underdogs in this massive last 16 tie with Bayern Munich, and we’re expecting the Bundesliga giants to put in a solid first leg performance tonight. The Blues have failed to win any of their last eight Champions League knockout ties and have already been beaten six times at Stamford Bridge this season. Bayern, meanwhile, have won nine of their last 12 away games in the competition and have a fantastic record against English sides. With both teams finding the net in five of Chelsea’s last six home games in the Champions League, a 2-1 win for the visitors is what we’re backing in our Chelsea vs Bayern Munich predictions.
Napoli vs Barcelona – What will be the correct score?
FST predicts: 2-1 Barcelona
Barcelona face a trip to the out of form Napoli on Tuesday night as they look to get the upper hand in their last 16 tie, and once again it’s the visitors coming into the game as major favourites. Barcelona boast an unbeaten record in this season’s Champions League and won four of their last five games, and they’re clashing with a Napoli side in turmoil at the moment. Under Gattuso, Napoli have lost four of their five Serie A home games and are on course to miss out on Champions League football next season. With Barcelona winning three of their last five Champions League games by a 2-1 scoreline, that looks a solid choice for this question.
Lyon vs Juventus – What will be the correct score?
FST predicts: 1-0 Juventus
Yet again, the hosts of this first leg tie come into the game as underdogs, and it’s no surprise. Lyon have had a really tough time of things this season, with the absence of star player and captain Memphis Depay resulting in a struggle to pin down a top four spot in Ligue 1. They have only won two of their last six in all competitions, and they face a Juventus side that have won each of their last five Champions League group stage games. Their four previous meetings with Lyon have resulted in three wins and a draw, and with both of their previous trips to Lyon ending in a 1-0 win that’s exactly what our Lyon vs Juventus predictions suggest might happen again.
Real Madrid vs Manchester City – What will be the correct score?
FST predicts: 2-2 Draw
In the standout tie of this week’s fixtures, the most successful side in Champions League history faces a team desperate to clinch their first ever title. Manchester City are faced with a potential two year ban from the competition, so Pep Guardiola will be going all out to get his hands on the trophy this season. However, Real Madrid really come alive in the Champions League, losing just three home games in the competition in the last five years. Manchester City may be slight favourites, but they have only won six of their last 11 away games in the Champions League and have never beaten Real Madrid. Considering two of Real Madrid’s three Champions League home games this season have ended 2-2, backing that again is a good choice for our Real Madrid vs Manchester City predictions.
