CSKA Moscow vs Tottenham
CSKA Moscow showed great character to come back from two goals down and hold Bayer Leverkusen to a draw. Spurs showed their Champions League inexperience in Round 1 as they failed to make the most of their chances and possession only to be beaten by Monaco at White Hart Lane. The Londoners have the odds stacked against them now and I reckon they have enough in them to snatch a point in Moscow..
Borussia Dortmund vs Real Madrid
Borussia Dortmund have had a great start to their season sitting second in the Bundesliga and first in their Champions League group after a outstanding 0-6 win over Legia Warsaw in the first Round of matches. Reigning champions Real Madrid are enjoying life under Zinedine Zidane sitting top of the table in La Liga, despite relying on two very late goals to beat Sporting Lisbon 2-1 several weeks ago. I predict an exciting encounter which will end all square.
Leicester City vs FC Porto
Despite a poor start to their domestic campaign, reigning Premier League champions Leicester were superb in their Champions League debut, comfortably beating Danish side Club Brugge 0-3. FC Porto were undoubtedly left frustrated after their first round home draw to Danish side FC Koebenhavn. The Portuguese will expect to comfortably qualify from this group though I am backing a home win.

Dinamo Zagreb vs Juventus
As expected Dinamo Zagreb were pummeled in their opening round fixture in Lyon as the Croatian side stand little chance of getting past the group stages. Despite their best efforts Juventus were extremely frustrated by a stubborn Sevilla side in Turin and this a must win for Allegri’s men.

Arsenal vs Basel
Arsene Wenger will be pleased with the spirit his men showed in Paris as they scored in the last 15 minutes to rescue a point over PSG. Basel also drew their first game of the group stages at home to lowly Ludogorets Razgrad. I can’t see anything but a home win here.
Napoli vs Benfica
Napoli fans were chanting Arkadiusz Milik’s name well into the early hours of the morning after his brace earned three vital points for the Partnepoi in Kiev. Benfica were held at home by Turkish side Besiktas and I reckon the Italians will prove too strong for the visitors in Naples.
Celtic vs Manchester City
Scottish champions Celtic were at the end of seven unanswered goals when they played at the Nou Camp several weeks ago. Brendan Rodger’s side face another uphill challenge when Manchester City make the journey north on Wednesday night. Pep Guardiola’s men are brimming with confidence and I have no doubt they will win comfortably..
Atletico Madrid vs Bayern Munich
Undoubtedly the most anticipated fixture of round 2 is between these two European heavyweights, both with three points after their respective opening round victories. Atletico have yet to find their rhythm this season and have dropped a number of silly points in their domestic league. Bayern Munich have started their domestic campaign just where they left off in previous seasons i.e. completing dominating, winning their first 5 games and scoring 15 goals and only conceding one in the process. I predict a great game of football which will end in an away win.
