16 Champions League games will be played this week as Europe’s premier football competition returns. The hustle for goals and the battle for qualification points will continue across Europe as teams clash.
Featuring MatchDay 4 games, this week will see the return leg of games played in the third round. And there’s plenty to look forward to and also make money from.
One of the most exciting games of the last round was the Real Madrid- Inter game. It was a win that Zidane’s side needed badly as they drew level on points with Shakhtar on the table. But they’re still third on the log. And in this reverse fixture in Italy, it’s somewhat of a do-or-die affair for both sides.
Rock-bottom Inter Milan need to win this fixture to stand any chance of qualifying. Real Madrid need the points from this game to stake their claims to finish top of the table.

Two German teams scored six goals – away from home – in the last round of games. For Bayern Munich and Bayer Leverkusen, this week will be about continuing their white-hot scoring form when they host their opponents.
14 of the last 16 Champions League games featured at least three goals. And of such games saw Chelsea score all the goals when they faced Rennes. Frank Lampard’s Blues are currently enjoying a fine run of form, scoring seven goals so far and conceding none. Only Liverpool have managed to keep their opponents at bay in their last three UCL games.

While Chelsea travel to France to face Rennes, Liverpool welcome a stuttering Atalanta side to the Merseyside. The Italian have only won four of their last 10, compared to a Liverpool side that won’t stop winning games.
Liverpool have won all their games. It’s the same for Manchester City. Guardiola’s side may be suffering in the Premier League. However, the UCL form has been a total contrast of the Premier League predicaments.
With nine goals scored, the Citizens are currently on a three-game winning run. Having conceded just one goal so far, it’s hard to bet against them not winning their next game.
Salzburg has to be the best-performing rock-bottom side in the Champions League so far. Despite being fourth, they have scored six goals – an average of two per game. Their performance against Bayern Munich is a testament to the fact that they are not scared of any team, even if it means losing.
