The Match made in Heaven: First week Round Up!

Atletico Madrid is up against, the defending champions and the team most in form, Liverpool while Dortmund will play against, last year French champions and Ligue 1 giants, PSG. Both matches are going to be really exciting and all four teams have wealth to talent in their squad.

The Underdogs:

On the other hand, Atlanta will play against Valencia, the latter has won lots of tournaments and should be well prepared to reach quarter-finals but in champions league, you never know what will happen.  Jose Mourinho’s Spurs side will play against, extremely talented German side with a great young and hungry manager, Leipzig.

First Week fixtures:

  • Tuesday 18th February:

Atletico Madrid vs Liverpool (20:00pm GMT)

Borussia Dortmund vs Paris Saint-Germain (20:00pm GMT)

  • Wednesday 19th February:

Atalanta vs Valencia (20:00pm GMT)

Classic Encounters: 2nd week of Champions League:

The 2nd week of the Champions League is also going to be a nail-biting one as the fixture will see Lampard’s Young Chelsea side play against resurgent Bayern, champions of German Bundesliga. Lampard has done a great job in keeping Chelsea near top-four finish in the domestic league with the limited resources he had and mostly young players. While Bayern is having a tough season after losing two key players last summer in Ribery and Robben. Lewandowski, on the other hand, has been a source of great inspiration and Coutinho has done a decent job since joining Bayern. Both sides have won the league before and the hunger to win more should decide this encounter.

Italian fantasy!

On the other hand, Napoli will face Messi’s Barcelona both teams have struggled for form and although the expectation from both respect clubs are different. For Barcelona it is all about winning all the competition in hand. For all the of screen trouble Barcelona has faced in recent week, the quality of players they have should handle all the pressure and put in a great performance on the pitch. Seiten’s appointment as Barcelona head coach came as a surprise and it is too soon to judge him as he was appointed mid-season. Napoli, also changed their head coach by sacking Ancelotti and hiring Gattuso. Although they have strong players but Barcelona should prove to be too strong for them. 

And on the 2nd day, there is Lyon will face Italian champions, Juventus, who boost Ronaldo in their ranks along with other great talents in Dybala, Higuaín, Ramsey and Pjanic. Lyon’s striker Dembele has seen his stock risen this season for scoring goals and overall play and along with talented Aoura, Lyon will not make it easy for Juventus.  

Bitter Rivals!

Last but not the least Real Madrid will take on Manchester City. Rivals as players now rivals as manager, Zidane vs Guardiola, both of them have seen success as a player and as a manager. Zidane recently has recently has done impossible by winning three consecutive champions league title and got the best out of one of the world’s greatest player in Ronaldo. Ever since Ronaldo has left, Real Madrid has never looked the same but Zidane gradually building the team once again that will be able to win trophies once again. This year’s champions league may have come too early for his new looked side but Zidane has masterminded victories before and he can come up with a plan even now. One the other hand Guardiola has yet to win champions league with his English side and they will want to win this year. And the timing is perfect for them as Laporte is back in the side, their most important defender, and Aguero is scoring goals for fun along with Jesus, Mahrez, Silva and Raheem Sterling. If Guardiola can manage to get his team scoring like they have and get more out of Raheem Sterling than they will have a genuine side of winning the trophy this year.
