Champions league – Big names need to win

Hoffenheim vs Liverpool prediction

What a disappointing start to the Premier League Liverpool had on Saturday. Whilst the positive of scoring freely allows Liverpool to feel ok about Coutinho’s possible departure, bagging 3 goals from a poor side like Watford spells disaster for an aspiring team like Liverpool. This week Liverpool turn their heads towards the Champions league and meet a tougher contender in Hoffenheim. A fast paced German side, capable of putting up a decent challenge to any team, even in the Group stages. This game is crucial for Liverpool. If they do not pass the round and end up out of the Champions league it almost leaves them with a disappointing season and it’s only August. Hoffenheim bring pace and attacking possibilities. This side is free flowing and although Livperpool are the favourites, a win in Germany is going to be an uphill climb.

Celtic vs FC Astana prediction

Celtic park hosts the much awaited fixture on Wednesday between the Scottish giants and the Kazakhstan league leaders. Dembele will be out of this tie with an injury and that deals a blow to Celtic, but they are still the stronger side. Celtic are a tough side at home and they are still expected to win this first leg. FC Astana will be hoping to either snatch an away goal or limit the damage. Nevertheless they will be a hard headed side to go up against. The crowd will be, as always, Celtic’s 12th man.

Napoli vs Nice predictions

Napoli are hoping to avoid elimination in this round as this can be a serious pay day for their squad. Having had a great attacking display during the summer friendlies, Napoli go into this game knowing it is crucial to get this tie right. They are an attacking force and have no trouble scoring goals freely. Nice have been a tough cookie both in the French ligue 1 and also in Champions League in earlier rounds. They have young firepower but have lost their left back to Inter earlier this week.
