Today’s jackpot games comprise of English Checkatrade Trophy Play Offs, the ucl, and Europa league matches.
GILLINGHAM v OXFORD UTD
Gillingham FC hosts Oxford Utd in a play-off match whereby the hosts look in a better shape than the visitors. The hosts won all the 3 matches in the group stage of the Checkatrade Trophy hence will be bubbling with confidence. Although Oxford Utd are 10 positions ahead of Gillingham, their poor form in this competition and the League One competition may further dent their winning chances.
Prediction: 2-1 or 2-2
BAYERN MUNCHEN v PARIS ST GERMAIN
On paper, the visitors boast a better chance in this UCL clash. However, it is worth noting PSG lost to the 16-th placed Strasbourg in their domestic competition. Although it may be hard to imagine back-to-back loses for the Neymar-led squad, that cannot be further from the possible result considering the caliber of Bayern.
This tie promises a lot of goals and the winner will be the one who defends best whereby in this case the hosts have the edge. It is highly likely that Unai Emery will rest key players for this match since PSG will still top the group regardless of the outcome given their superior goal difference.
SL BENFICA v FC BASEL
Benfica lie last in their UCL Group A after losing all previous 4 matches. On the other hand, Basel are tied on points with CSKA Moscow and have probable shot of qualifying to the round of 16. However, that will be the case if Manchester United beats CSKA Moscow and Basel beats Benfica.
Either way, it is likely that Basel will seek the more direct route of qualifying for the next round, which is to beat Benfica.
LINCOLN v ACCRINGTON
Lincoln is another team that won all its group matches to top the group in the Checkatrade trophy. However, the hosts are coming up against that is 3-rd in the League Two log. In addition, having tasted defeat in its last league match, the visitors will definitely hope for nothing other than a positive result.
SHAKHTAR DONETSK v MANCHESTER CITY
Manchester City travel to Ukraine for the last UCL group match to face Shakhtar. The hosts are on the brink of qualifying for the round of 16. To achieve such a fete, the hosts need only 1 point to confirm their qualification and edge out Napoli. The Manchester derby is a few days away hence it won’t be a surprise if Pep rests his key players since City have already booked a position in the next round of the UCL.
Prediction: 2-2 or 0-1
PETERBOROUGH v SOUTHEND
In previous meetings, this clash has been characterized by draws. Such a record coupled with their inconsistent recent results both in the League One and Checkatrade competitions, you could afford a draw at the end of 90 minutes.
Despite the possible draw, our prediction is an away win.
ATALANTA v LYON
Lyon’s form in their domestic competition has been outstanding with only 1 loss in their last 10 matches. Besides that, these two teams have already qualified for the next round of UEL hence making this tie the group-topping clash. That said, Lyon will fancy that opportunity. Given the good away form of Depay, goals from the away team are likely.
AUSTRIA VIENNA v AEK ATHENS
Despite being bottom of the group; the hosts have the same number of points with the 3-rd placed Rijeka. As such, Vienna would fancy their home advantage and play for pride. Despite such a position for the hosts, Athens would want to play for the win to qualify for the next round. Consequently, the poor Vienna’s defense could be their downfall. This could end up being a draw or a win with a small margin for the visitors.
APOLLON LIMASSOL v EVERTON
Everton have been poor this season. Their string of loses and draws forced the management to appoint a new coach. With such a sense of renewed hope, this could be Everton’s time to record a win in the Europa League this season.
VITORIA GUIMARAES v KONYASPOR
The visitors go into this match hoping for nothing but a win. However, such a win will count if Marseille loses their match. As such, the probable result is Konyaspor winning the tie.
REAL SOCIEDAD v ZENIT ST PETERSBURG
This is match between two teams that have already qualified for the next round. The hosts have recorded poor results in recent weeks and would like to correct the same. With nothing much on the line, you could not help but think of a goalless 90 minutes.
RED STAR BELGRADE v FC KOLN
Despite the poor form of FC Koln in the domestic competition, they have a chance of winning 3 matches on the trot in the Europa League. If that is the cause though, it will be a slim win in favor of the visitors, which will see them play in the next round.
VITESSE ARNHEM v NICE
Nice have already qualified for the next round. And since they have an upcoming game against the respectable Nantes, the visitor’s manager will probably rest his first-team players. That not withstanding though, Nice are likely to take the day or settle for a draw.
Prediction: 0-2 or 0-0
