In the previous season, English club Liverpool met the Spanish club Real Madrid for the third time in the UEFA Champions League finals after 1981 and 2018. The finale happened in Paris, France, and at the Stade de France. Real Madrid spectacularly won the game with a 0-1. The victory gave Real Madrid their 14th title in the UCL, the highest number and twice as many titles as Milan, who has secured seven and is second on the list. All the arrangements are in motion. The defending champions of 2021-22 UCL & UEL, Real Madrid, and Eintracht Frankfurt will meet the opponent teams this season.

Will Real Madrid repeat their win to get the 15th title? We will see. The prospects are looking thin, given the talented cubs on the list.

There has to be a Group of Death in every tournament, and this season has offered a pool full of hard-hitting teams such as Bayern Munich, Barcelona, and Inter Milan grouped in one with Viktoria Plzen.

Man City is in Group G with Dortmund, Sevilla, and Danish team Copenhagen. It is a manageable group for Man City, and their chances of winning the Champions League title are high. Behind them are PSG and Liverpool. Both of them are in with tough opponents like Juventus and Napoli.

BettingPremier’s take on the primary Group Stage games on Matchday 3 of UEFA Champions League 2022-23.

Bayern Munich vs. Inter Milan

Tuesday’s Champions League fixture will see Bayern Munich playing against Inter Milan on Matchday 6. Bayern Munich aims to improve upon their most recent result, a 0-3 victory against Barcelona. Inter Milan enters this match having defeated Viktoria Plzen 4-0 in their last game. When playing Italian teams at home in the UEFA Champions League, Bayern Munich has dominated the previous five games, scoring at least twice each. Bayern Munich has won each of its past 12 League group stage contests, and they want to be the first team in League history to sweep all six group matches in back-to-back seasons. Inter Milan hasn’t lost in any of their last three UCL away games, and they have a chance to extend that streak to four matches.

In their 43 home League games, Bayern Munich has netted 42 for 136 goals. Three of Inter Milan’s previous five games in Germany have been UEFA Europa League knockout matches, and they have won all four. Sadio Mane of Bayern Munich has 27 goals in the UCL, which ranks him fourth among African players after Didier Drogba, Mohamed Salah, and Samuel Eto’o. Noussair Mazraoui, a defender for Bayern Munich, has started more open-play movements that have resulted in goals since the beginning of last season than any other player. Even if Inter Milan can score against Bayern Munich, more is needed to prevent a loss. Bayern Munich will have the advantage after a closely contested match by the game’s end.

Liverpool vs. Napoli

Liverpool will battle with Napoli on Tuesday in a Champions League fixture for Matchday 6. Liverpool wants to improve upon their most recent victory of 0-3 against Ajax. And Napoli enters the game fresh off a 3-0 win against the Rangers. Liverpool has dropped its previous two UCL games to Italian teams. Although Napoli has failed to defeat an English club on the road 11 times to date in European play, they have gone undefeated in their past two travels. It will be Jurgen Klopp’s 100th game in charge in the UCL. He will take over a century of matches in the tournament, making him the first German manager to do so.

Napoli leads all teams in goals scored during the initial five Matchdays this season. Bayern Munich was the only side in the previous four seasons to achieve more goals in a single group stage. Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah has 42 goals in the League, the second-most by an African player in the competition’s history. Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andrew Robertson may play in Liverpool’s 50th UCL game this weekend. Giovanni Di Lorenzo of Napoli has produced more opportunities from open play and after a carry than any other player in the League this year. SSC Napoli would be upset if they failed to score against this Liverpool team, but more is needed to prevent a defeat. It might turn into a close game, with Liverpool coming out on top when everything is said and done.

Viktoria Plzen vs. Barcelona

Champions League action on Tuesday will see Viktoria Plzen taking on Barcelona for Matchday 6. Viktoria Plzen will be hoping for a better outcome after their 4-0 loss to Inter Milan in their last match. On the other hand, Barcelona will be aiming to have a better result in this one after losing to Bayern Munich in their most recent Champions League match. Viktoria Plzen has repeatedly suffered defeat in their last three UEFA Champions League encounters with Barcelona. Barcelona will face Viktoria Plzen in the UCL for the second match away from home. Barcelona has a perfect record against Czech opponents, winning six times, drawing once, scoring 20 goals, and allowing only three goals. Barcelona has won each of their three away contests.

By winning one of those games, Viktoria Plzen has only avoided loss against Atletico Madrid and Villarreal in their nine European games against Spanish teams. Barcelona has missed the UCL’s knockout rounds in back-to-back seasons. This season, Viktoria Plzen has given up 20 goals in the UCL. If he scores in this match, Robert Lewandowski of Barcelona will pass Karim Benzema to become the competition’s third-leading scorer away from home, behind Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi. Lewandowski has 37 goals in 53 away games in the UCL. Although Viktoria Plzen can surpass this Barcelona team’s defense, more than one goal should be required. Fans may anticipate goals from both sides, but towards the game’s end, Barcelona will have a better chance of winning.

Real Madrid vs. Celtic

It is time for the Champions League action on Wednesday when Real Madrid will play against Celtic for Matchday 6. Real Madrid will be looking to avenge their earlier 3-2 defeat to RB Leipzig by winning this match. Celtic’s most recent game was a 1-1 draw with Shakhtar Donetsk. Celtic’s previous five UEFA Champions League matches against Spanish teams have all resulted in losses, with the Scottish squad scoring only once in response while giving up 19 goals. They have never defeated a Spanish opponent while traveling in the European Cup or UEFA Champions League. After being undefeated in their first 16 games of the season, Real Madrid previously suffered their first loss against RB Leipzig.

Celtic’s five games this season have resulted in two draws and three losses, leaving them winless. Under Carlo Ancelotti, Real Madrid has only lost one of their 11 home matches in the League group stage, with the other 10 going in their favor. Celtic has taken 69 shots this season but has only managed three goals. No player has been a part of more open play sequences that have resulted in goals since the beginning of last season than Vinicius Junior of Real Madrid. He has three goals in his five outings for Real Madrid this season. Real Madrid’s lineup will make it difficult for Celtic to score against them. However, real Madrid has the power to control the outcome of this game. Consequently, Real Madrid will win decisively in the end.

AC Milan vs. RB Salzburg

AC Milan will battle with RB Salzburg on Wednesday in the Champions League fixture for Matchday 6. Following their 0-4 victory against Dinamo Zagreb, AC Milan will aim for a repeat performance. RB Salzburg will hope for a better outcome after losing to Chelsea in their previous encounter. Milan has only lost one of their 12 games against Austrian opponents, and they have gone undefeated in their past eight meetings. Milan recently defeated Arsenal with a score of 4-0 at home, marking the first time they had netted four goals in a UEFA Champions League match. RB Salzburg hopes to go past the group stage for the second straight season after failing to do so in any of their previous three UCL outings.

Milan aims to record back-to-back victories in the League after winning two past four games. Under Matthias Jaissle, Red Bull Salzburg has scored all 15 goals with players 23 years of age or younger. In the UCL so far this year, Milan has scored eight goals. In the competition’s group stage, they accrued more points. Olivier Giroud of Milan scored his 20th goal overall. Giroud has become the oldest player in UCL history to achieve 20 goals at 36 years and 25 days. When AC Milan plays RB Salzburg, they have a better chance of scoring the goals they require. In this game, RB Salzburg will have a difficult time scoring. By the end of this game, AC Milan should have a comfortable lead.

Manchester City vs. Sevilla

Manchester City is ready to meet Sevilla on Wednesday in the Champions League schedule for Matchday 6. Manchester City enters this match after a scoreless draw with Borussia Dortmund. Sevilla will join this contest, having defeated FC Copenhagen by a score of 3-0. Pep Guardiola, the manager of Manchester City, has only suffered two defeats in his 13 matches against Sevilla. In the UEFA Champions League group stage, Sevilla last defeated an English team in November 2007. Since Pep Guardiola became manager of the team, Man City has won 81% of its home League games. The competition’s record-setting home-winning % belongs to Guardiola’s squad. With five of their previous six UCL road games ending in draws, Sevilla is winless in those contests.

Erling Haaland, a striker for Manchester City, has 23 UCL goals in 28 games. His 61 minutes per goal ratio is the greatest of any player with more than 10 competition appearances. Isco scored for Sevilla last time around, marking his first League goal since doing so for his former side Real Madrid against Manchester City. In this UCL season, Jack Grealish has participated in more play sequences that have resulted in shots than any other Man City player. It will be difficult for Sevilla to stop a Manchester City squad that is predicted to score many goals. Manchester City will have a sizable victory margin when the game is over.

Juventus vs. PSG

It is time for Juventus and PSG to play against each other on Wednesday in the Champions League action for Matchday 6. Following a 4-3 loss to Benfica in their most recent match, Juventus will be seeking to improve on that performance tonight. PSG enters the game having defeated Maccabi Haifa 7-2. Juventus has never lost four games in a single group stage of the UEFA Champions League. In each of the last four campaigns, Paris Saint-Germain has won their final group stage encounter, scoring at least four goals in every triumph (18). Juventus was able to advance from eight successive UCL group rounds before being disqualified from the competition this year. To avoid joining Roma as the only Italian team to lose five games in the group stage, Juventus must avoid doing so.

Except for own goals, Lionel Messi, Neymar, or Kylian Mbappe have either scored, provided an assist, or both for PSG’s 26 out of 28 League goals since the start of last season. Only Zlatan Ibrahimovic had more goals in a single season for the club than Kylian Mbappe’s six UCL group stage goals this season for PSG. In his four group-stage league appearances, Messi has contributed seven goals. Samuel Iling-Junior made his first appearance for Juventus in a significant European tournament since David Platt on Matchday 5 against Benfica. He also made history by being the 19-year-old player to assist on a UCL debut since Giovanni Reyna. Juventus ought to have enough against PSG to score. In this game, both sides have the opportunity to achieve, but Paris Saint-Germain will score the winning goal after 90 minutes.

Chelsea vs. Dinamo Zagreb

On Wednesday, Champions League action will see Chelsea play against Dinamo Zagreb for Matchday 6. Chelsea wants to improve on its 1-2 victory over RB Salzburg by winning again. On the other hand, Dinamo Zagreb will be looking to redeem themselves after losing to AC Milan in their last match. In a group-stage campaign in the Champions League, only one side has ever defeated Chelsea both at home and away. Dinamo Zagreb last achieved an away victory in the League in November 1998, when they triumphed 1-0 against Ajax. Since Graham Potter took over as manager, Chelsea has won all four UCL contests. Seven different players have scored Chelsea’s eight goals thus far.

No side has scored more goals after a build-up phase since the beginning of last season than Chelsea. Two of Dinamo Zagreb’s three UCL goals this season have been achieved by Mislav Orsic, one of which was the game-winning goal in this season’s rematch against Chelsea. In Chelsea’s UCL campaign this season, Mason Mount has been personally involved in more attempts than any other player. It appears that Dinamo Zagreb won’t find it simple to score against a Chelsea squad. More than likely, Chelsea will give itself several opportunities to win this game. The final score will probably favor Chelsea by a significant margin.
