UEFA Champions League Predictions, Live Stream and Odds 2021-22
Welcoming the return of fans to the stadium, all arrangements for the UEFA Champions League is in place. The 67th season of Europe’s top football tournament UEFA Champions League unfolds with less hassle than the last two years. The group action starts for the 2021-22 season kickstarts on 14th September 2021 and the season finale will happen on 28th May 2022.
A nuclear bomb—Europa Super League—was diffused before causing much damage by the UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin. Yet, the ramifications were felt deeply in Catalonia and Madrid. One such event is the departure of Lionel Messi from Barcelona. Real Madrid’s president Florentino Perez and Juventus’ Andrea Agnelli headed this “coup.”
Chelsea were crowned the champions in an all English finale of the 2020-21 season. This year too, the English clubs are vying for a similar opportunity. Manchester United have bought foreign talents, Lukaku joined Chelsea, Virgil Van Dijk is back in Liverpool and Manchester City are searching for a striker.
In the rest of Europe, Paris Saint-Germain have been all over the news for bagging five phenomenal talents for free this summer. Lionel Messi, Gianluigi Donnarumma, Sergio Ramos, Georginio Wijnaldum and Achraf Hakimi. Germany’s conquerors Bayern Munich bid farewell to Hansi Flick, the young coach Julian Nagelsmann will fill his shoes, Joachim Low’s resignation levitated Flick to national duty.
The final and decisive round of the Champions League awaits the fans this week. Liverpool, Ajax, Bayern Munich, Sporting, Inter, Real Madrid, Manchester United, Chelsea, Manchester City, Paris SG and Juventus are already qualified and can relax a bit. Groups A, H and C have it all figured out and will be playing dead rubbers this week. Group G is the most competitive this season, a mere three points separating Lille and Wolfsburg. BettingPremier’s take on Champions League round 6 follows hereafter.
Bayern Munich vs Barcelona
Skyrocketing Bayern Munich host Barcelona at Allianz Arena behind closed doors on Wednesday. A controversial penalty brought the Bavarians a victory in the Der Klassiker 2-3. Dortmund gave a heavy fight in the fixture. Following the routine, Lewandowski scored a brace. The Bavarians are already into the knockout stage, so technically, the Catalans are at the mercy of Bayern. Joshua Kimmich, Lucas, Sabitzer, Sarr, Stanisic and Cuisance form the long list of injuries. Possession game in Barca has improved a bit. Yet they are not at the level to challenge Bayern. Injuries to young sensations like Ansu Fati and Pedri have affected the midfield. Sergio Aguero, Braithwaite, Roberto and Wague are other names on the injury list. The Catalans’ defeat to Betis at Camp Nou proves all these points. Barcelona, for all their glory, might drop off from the Champions League this week.
Atalanta vs Villarreal
Matchday 6 between Atalanta and Villarreal is a classic example of winner takes it all, Gewiss Stadium will witness the game this Wednesday. Atalanta pulled off a cheeky upset against Napoli 2-3. Freuler sent the ball into the back of the net and sealed the deal for Atalantans. Of the past four games, Duvan Zapata has been consistent with five goals. Gosens and Lovato are on the injured list. Gerard Moreno missed a sitter, Pervis Estupinan’s cross touched Moreno’s leg and flew far away from the net. Unai Emery’s men have lost three of the last five games across all competitions. Accumulation of yellow cards will restrain Pino to the sidelines. Aurier, Coquelin and Danjuma make the injured list. A draw or a victory will favour Villarreal unless the Young Boys produce a deadly performance at Old Trafford. Atalanta have to win and are favoured by the bookmakers.
FC Porto vs Atletico Madrid
FC Porto host Atletico Madrid at Estadio do Dragao on round 6 of the Champions League group stage. There are a few scenarios at play here. If Porto wins, they will qualify for the knockout stage. If they lose, Atletico Madrid will have a higher chance of qualification but Atleti will be at the mercy of Liverpool to beat or draw AC Milan. If the result is a draw, the Spaniards can pack their bags. And Porto will have to wait for the AC Milan game result. Atleti have the feeblest position in the group and will probably see the exit. They are on a three-game losing streak in the Champions League as well. In the first round, Atletico Madrid and FC Porto shared the spoils. Now, the sides don’t have the luxury for that. Porto has a long list of injuries. Conceicao, Joao Mario, Marcano, Pepe, Ramos and Uribe make the injury list. Felipe and Savic are the injured in Atleti. Neither of the sides has the odds favoured, Porto are the likeliest to emerge a victor or finish to a stalemate.
