Benfica vs Arsenal
UEFA Europa League
Date: Thursday, 18 February 2021
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Stadio Olimpico.

The Gunners are in the midst of a crisis season. Despite the best of their efforts they have not been able to break into the top-most tier of the PL table, and as things stand the team will have to give up European aspirations for the 2021-22 campaign.

As such, their only hope remaining is the Europa League. They need to deliver a mesmerizing campaign in the contest, and possibly win it outright, in order to save their season, as well as to save faces in front of fans.

Moreover, the winner of the Europa will get an automatic entry to the next edition of the Champions League – which should be an added advantage.

They do have the confidence of being one of the best teams in the most competitive league in Europe. They regularly take on the best teams in world football, and are much more well-versed with pressure situations than their counterparts for the day.

Meanwhile, the Eagles have been worryingly inconsistent lately. They are no longer in the title conversation in the Portuguese top flight, despite having played an extra game. In fact, they are placed fourth in the table, trailing ten points behind toppers.

They are also part of a much inferior league compared to that of the English top flight. They are in no shape to take on Mikel Arteta’s men, despite all the troubles the English titans are currently facing.

Expect an Arsenal win this Thursday.

Benfica vs Arsenal: Head-to-head (h2h)

  • The Gunners are on a two-game winning run (in the Emirates Cup), and had scored a total of ten goals in the process.
  • Their only defeat against this rival had come back in 1991, and that too in the extra time of a match-up.
  • Jorge Jesus’s men had lost five of the preceding nine encounters against other PL squads.
  • Arteta’s men were unbeaten in nine of the former twelve clashes against other Portuguese opposition.

Benfica vs Arsenal Prediction

The Gunners have a terrific h2h record against this rival in recent times, and against other Primeira Liga opposition as well. They are also from the best league in Europe, while the First Division A is a far inferior domestic competition in comparison.

Moreover, striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang seems to have found form just when it was needed, as he is fresh off a blistering hat-trick.

In addition, Arteta and his boys need a thumping win at any cost to hold their heads high. An under-par performance this Thursday would be nothing short of a disaster for them.

In addition, Jesus’s men were also winless in six of their former nine match-ups, and they do not even have the home advantage as the game is played at a neutral venue.

Likely, expect an Arsenal victory this match-day.

Benfica vs Arsenal: Betting Tips

  • Arsenal to Win Either Half @ 1.90 (9/10)
  • Over 1.5 Team Goals by Arsenal @ 2.00 (1/1).

Sevilla vs Borussia Dortmund
UEFA Champions League
Date: Wednesday, 17 February 2021
Kick-Off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan, Sevilla.

The first leg of the UEFA Champions League last 16 round between Sevilla and Borussia Dortmund could not have come at a better moment for the Spaniards.

The Rojiblancos are flying high going into one of the most important fixtures of the season. They have won nine on the spin across competitions, a streak that includes some truly impressive results.

One such came seven days ago when Julen Lopetegui’s troops saw off Barcelona 2-0 at home in the first leg of the Copa del Rey semifinal. Sevilla have only conceded one goal in the last nine matches in all competitions.

Will they have what it takes to keep hold of Erling Haaland & company in this match-up?

The story is completely opposite with Der BVB. The visitors have been struggling badly for consistency for quite some time now. They’ve made a managerial change earlier in the season but Edin Terzic does not seem to have the knowledge and experience for big results at the moment.

Dortmund are leaking goals with ease these days. They sit just 6th in the Bundesliga standings and have an enormous 15-point deficit behind Bayern Munich at the top.

Sevilla vs Borussia Dortmund Head-to-head

  • A decade has passed since these two sides have last played each other.
  • They were battling it out in the group stage of the UEFA Europa League back then (the 2010/11 season).
  • Sevilla took a 0-1 victory on the road, while the reverse fixture ended in a 2-2 draw in Spain.

Sevilla vs Borussia Dortmund Prediction

Borussia Dortmund are on a dreadful run of results. They lost three, drew two, and won just one of the last six matches in the league.

The team led by Edin Terzic allowed two or more goals in four of the last five league outings. They also shipped two in the home win over Paderborn in the DFB Pokal (3-2) in the meantime. They will travel to Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan off the back of a 2-2 home draw to struggling Hoffenheim.

Sevilla are heavy form favourites going into the tie and we can hardly look past the home win pick at the odds of 2.30.

The value is fantastic with the hosts to score two or more goals in the game at the odds of 2.10 if we know their rivals have just been incapable of keeping things quiet at the back recently.

Sevilla vs Borussia Dortmund Betting Tips

  • Sevilla to win @ 2.30
  • Sevilla Over 1.5 Team Goals @ 2.10.

FC Porto vs Juventus
UEFA Champions League
Date: Wednesday, 17 February 2021
Kick-Off at 20.00 UK
Venue: Estadio Do Dragao, Porto.

Porto will try and continue their fine home form in this term of the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday evening when they play host to Juventus at Estadio Do Dragao.

The most successful Italian team comes into the tie as a favourite, but Cristiano Ronaldo & company will have to dig deep to secure a positive result ahead of the reverse fixture in Turin.

The Portuguese champions have been almost impeccable on the home court in the group phase of the Champions League. They did not concede a single goal in three home outings, despite playing the likes of Manchester City in the process (a goalless draw). Sergio Conceicao’s men easily won the other two home fixtures against Olympiacos (2-0) and Marseille (3-0).

However, they will be up against a much tougher opposition and the stakes are much higher now. Will the hosts be able to keep things quiet at the back against the Italian powerhouse?

Porto vs Juventus Head-to-head

It’s been four years since these two sides last met each other. Interestingly, it was also the last 16 round of the Champions League.

Juventus advanced 3-0 on aggregate. They won the first leg in Porto 0-2 before confirming the overall victory with a 1-0 home success in the rematch.

The two teams also played each other in the group stage of the 2001/02 Champions League campaign when Juventus claimed four points from two meetings with Porto.

Porto vs Juventus Prediction

La Vecchia Signora significantly halted their push for the title by losing 1-0 to Napoli on Saturday evening. They thus snapped a three-game winning run in the domestic league.

Andrea Pirlo has reasons to be worried ahead of the trip to Estadio Do Dragao knowing that his men have failed to find the back of the net in any of the last two competitive outings. They played a goalless draw at home to Inter (still advanced to the Coppa Italia final, though) before falling 1-0 at Napoli.

Looking at Porto’s results and the home form in the group stage of the elite continental competition, we have to see the value in backing the Under 2.5 goals FT pick at the odds of 1.66.

We will also back Porto not to lose at the 1.72 odds.

Porto vs Juventus Betting Tips

  • Juve to Win or Draw @ 1.35
  • Under 2.5 goals @ 1.66.

Barcelona vs PSG
UEFA Champions League
Date: Tuesday, 16 February 2021
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Camp Nou.

The last time these two faced off, the Champions League witnessed one of the greatest games in modern football. After completely being dismantled in the first leg of 2017 CL, with a 0-4 scorecard, the Catalans scripted an unbelievable 6-1 comeback at the Nou Camp.

And Neymar Jr, currently the talisman of the Parisians, had inspired the Spanish giants then to slot in three goals in the final six minutes of the match-up including injury time.

Suffice it to say that there’s scores to settle for the French champions, and it seems the right time to do so too – since Ronald Koeman’s men are arguably in their worst situation in the last 15 years.

Neymar might be ruled out of the fixture with injury, but Mauricio Pochettino’s men have enough firepower to lay waste to any defense in the world, let alone a weakened one that of the Catalans.

Likely, expect PSG to have the upper hand this Tuesday.

Barcelona vs PSG: Head-to-head (h2h)

  • Since 2013, four times these two have locked horns in the CL, in knockouts, and on all four occasions, the Spanish titans went through.
  • It’s been 26 years since the Ligue 1 team had recorded a knockout triumph.
  • Koeman’s men had scored two or more goals in five of the preceding six encounters.
  • Eight of the past eleven clashes had goals from both teams.

Barcelona vs PSG Prediction

Pochettino’s men are on a four-match winning run, and had scored two or more goals in seven of their preceding nine fixtures. They had also won eight of their former nine games, and were unbeaten in 17 of their last 19 matches.

On the other hand, the Catalans have a very worrying backline right now. It’s doubtful that Gerard Pique and Ronald Araujo would take part in the game, and at present, these two are the only credible defenders they have.

Moreover, Koeman’s men have a total of two clean sheets in their past ten games, and one of these had come in the Copa del Rey, against a team from the lower division.

As such, expect PSG to have the edge against them.

However, Lionel Messi and co have a stupendous record in the CL at this venue, and recently their offense has been on fire. In fact, they had scored a total of 32 goals from their past 12 fixtures.

They are also determined to not let the back-to-back humiliations in the CL affect them.

Count on them to score at least once at their hallowed ground.

Barcelona vs PSG: Betting Tips

  • Double Chance: BARCELONA or Draw @ 1.28 (5/6)
  • Both Teams to Score @ 1.50 (1/2).

RB Leipzig
 vs Liverpool
UEFA Champions League
Date: Tuesday, 16 February 2021
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Puskás Aréna.

The Reds are going through one of the worst phases in the past three seasons. They have been worryingly inconsistent lately, and gaffer Jurgen Klopp has officially conceded that their EPL title defense is over.

Confidence is at an all-time low, and this really was not the best time for the English titans to gear up for a European fixture.

On top of that, they are on the road, and are taking on the in-form and hungry Red Bulls, who have been on a mission to put an end to the domination of Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga.

Moreover, the Germans realize that this is the apt time to secure a famous win over one of the most successful teams in the history of the Champions League, and such a victory would definitely give them a lot of momentum.

Do also note that Julian Nagelsmann’s men had represented Germany in the CL semis the last season.

By the looks of things, expect Leipzig to post a win in the first leg.

RB Leipzig vs Liverpool Head-to-head (h2h)

  • These two teams have never fought against each other. However, the Red Bulls have a 100% winning record against EPL clubs, barring a single loss at the Old Trafford against Manchester United.
  • They have kept clean sheets in two of the former four games, and had scored three or more goals in two of the preceding four encounters.
  • Klopp’s men are on a ten-match unbeaten run against German rivals.
  • The latest clash was against Bayern in the Round of 16 of the 2019-20 edition, and then they recorded a 3-1 aggregate win.

RB Leipzig vs Liverpool Prediction

The Reds are on a three-game losing run, and had conceded a total of seven goals from the past two fixtures alone. Note that they were also winless in nine of their past twelve overall match-ups.

On the other hand, their counterparts are on a four-fixture winning run, and had a combined scorecard of 10-1 in the process. In addition, they were also unbeaten in 15 of their former 17 overall games.

Finally, they had also won 13 of their last 15 appearances at home, and had scored two or more goals in 11 of their 15 matches here.

Considering the stats regarding current form, expect Leipzig to dominate this upcoming ninety minutes.

RB Leipzig vs Liverpool Betting Tips

  • Leipzig to Win Either Half @ 2.25 (5/4)
  • Over 1.5 Team Goals by Leipzig @ 2.25 (5/4).
