The champions league is back again and the top teams from Europe will seek to go head to head for the most coveted trophy in Club football in Europe. This week’s matches feature only one heavy weight fixture with Bayern and Barcelona facing off again. This will be the first time the two teams have met officially in Champions League since Bayern trashed a Messi led Barcelona by 8 goals to 2.
Here are the predictions for match day 1
Bayern Versus Barcelona.
After Messi’s exit, we are all desperate to see how Barcelona will handle themselves with the huge gap left in the team. Bayern will seek to take another swipe at the Catalan club after both Manuel Neuer and Thomas Muller were captured on social media teasing Barcelona fans for their upcoming match. This will be a different match to the one in 2020 where Barcelona was disgraced 8-2. A good formation from Ronald Koeman could see Barcelona win easily. However, Bayern are still a strong side and will punish Barcelona again. My prediction is that Bayern will win by 4 goals to 1.
Manchester United Versus Young Boys.
This will be an easy match for Manchester United. Ronaldo will seek to add to his goal scoring numbers and improve his record with this fixture. Manchester United will win by 4 goals to 0
Chelsea versus Zenit St. Petersburg.
The champions of Europe will start their defence of the trophy with a match against the Russian champions. Chelsea are arguably the most complete team in the world currently and this should be an easy match for them. Chelsea 3 Zenith 0.
