Champions League Predictions, 26 August 2015
Club Brugge vs Manchester United prediction: 2
Manchester United carry a 3-1 advantage going into the game after summer signing Memphis Depay grabbed a brace in the first leg.
With just one win from their last 4 matches including a disappointing 2-0 defeat at Waregem at the weekend, Club Brugge’s form is all over the place.
Last weekend Man Utd were frustrated by Newcastle and they couldn’t find a way past the well-drilled Magpies with the game fizzling out to a 0-0 draw. But don’t expect similar tactics from the home side on Wednesday. Club Brugge have to take the game to the Premier League side and that could spell trouble as United have the pace on the counter attack to hurt them. We saw in the first leg how a game can pan out when sides attack United rather than try to settle for a draw themselves.
Bayer Leverkusen vs Lazio prediction: 1
Lazio won the first leg in Rome 1-0 thanks to a marvellous goal by substitute striker Keita Balde. Bayer 04 dominated for much of the match last week and now they want to show what they can do in the return leg.
Leverkusen have won their first two games in the Bundesliga and are joint top of the league along with Bayern Munich.
Lazio will miss 4 key players – captain Biglia, German legend Miroslav Klose, goalkeeper Federico Marchetti and striker Filip Djordjevic are all out injured.
