Maccabi Haifa vs Juventus Preview:

Possible starting lineups:

Maccabi Haifa:
Cohen; Sundgren, Seck, Batubinsika, Goldberg, Cornud; Mohamed, Fani, Chery; Atzili, Pierrot

Juventus:
Szczesny; Danilo, Bonucci, Bremer, Sandro; McKennie, Paredes, Rabiot; Di Maria, Vlahovic, Kostic

Maccabi Haifa will host Juventus at Sammy Ofer Stadium on Tuesday, just six days after they played in Turin. As You probably know, Juventus secured a 3:1 win at Allianz Stadium. The poor start of the season put the coach Alegri under enormous pressure, as well as the players. However, it was an inspirational night for Angel Di Maria, who set up Adrien Rabiot's double and Dusan Vlahovic's strike. Maccabi players also gave their maximum and scored through Din David, but were unlucky to hit the post twice. At the end, fewer than 29,000 fans left the stadium satisfied with the victory. Nevertheless, the Old Lady still face an uphill task to reach the knock-out phase as they trail PSG and Benfica by four points in Group H. One thing is clear, Juve must collect the points here to stay in the battle for the second place.

Maccabi Haifa have lost each of their last nine Champions League group fixtures. The Greens are outsiders in Group H, however they should not be underestimated, particularly when playing at home. Even the strong PSG had issues at Sammy Ofer Stadium. The fact they scored in Turin and hit the post twice will surely increase the players confidence. Coach Barak Bakhar will try to motivate his players as this match is crucial for the third place which means Europa League participation. On Saturday they lost 1:0 to Maccabi Bnei Raina in domestic league, but remained on the first place. Bakhar has the majority of his players ready, but Mahmoud Jaber and Suf Podgoreanu are ruled out by injury. Omer Atzili and Dean David are pushing for starting place after impressing in Turin where came in as substitutes.

Juventus started the new season very inconsistently. They are far from the top of Serie A, but also suffered two defeats in the Champions League. Having lost from Paris Saint-Germain and Benfica, the Old Lady looked almost eliminated. The matches against Maccabi Haifa were their last chance to remain in the battle for knock-out stage. Juve won 3:1 six days ago, but that victory means nothing if they failed to win in Israel too. The players confidence isn't at desired level, particularly after the defeat to Milan during the weekend. Alegri has three injured players, long-term absentees Paul Pogba and Federico Chiesa, as well as Mattia De Sciglio, who is ruled out by a thigh injury. Of course, this shouldn't be a problem as Juve have long roster.

Maccabi Haifa vs Juventus Prediction:

This is a must win situation for both teams. There is no space for calculations and draw is not good enough. I expect an open match with goals on both sides.

Maccabi Haifa vs Juventus Pick: Both teams to score - Yes @ 1.81 with Pinnacle

Rangers vs Liverpool Preview:

Possible starting lineups:

Rangers:
McGregor; Tavernier, Goldson, Sands, Barisic; Lundstram, Davis, Kamara; Sakala, Colak, Kent

Liverpool:
Alisson; Gomez, Konate, Van Dijk, Tsimikas; Fabinho, Thiago Alcantara; Salah, Firmino, Diogo Jota; Darwin Nunez

Rangers will try to register the first success in this season's Champions League when they host Liverpool at Ibrox. So far the Scottish Giants have suffered three straight defeats in Group A and sit at the bottom of the table. Liverpool won 2:0 the reverse fixture last week. That was the first time two teams have played each other competitively in their long history, though they have played in friendlies over the years. Trent Alexander-Arnold scored the first goal from free-kick, while Mohamed Salah converted a penalty in the second half of the match. Jurgen Klopp was pleased with the performance of his players as they dominated the match. Rangers goalkeeper Allan McGregor was outstanding during the whole 90 minute and saved lot of clear opportunities for Liverpool.

This is "do or die" game for Rangers as another defeat will mean elimination from the Champions League. Even the third place will be out of their hands in that case. Manager Giovanni van Bronckhorst is surely expecting his players to be more competitive than they have shown in the first three rounds. The warm-up was successful, they registered a high 4:0 win against St Mirren in the Scottish Premiership at the weekend. Antonio Colak scored a brace on that match and should start ahead of Alfredo Morelos in attack. James Tavernier and Fashion Sakala also found the back of the net and I believe the players confidence is higher. James Sands will probably replace the former Liverpool man Ben Davies in central defence having served his one-game suspension last week.

Liverpool are in big crisis at the moment. The last defeat to Arsenal during the weekend opened lot of painful questions. Jurgen Klopp is under enormous pressure, the biggest in the last seven years. He has an iconic status at Anfield and I don't think the club officials could sack him, but nothing is impossible. Liverpool were solid against the Gunners, but some strange referee's decisions went against the Reds. To be worse, Klopp lost two important players due to injuries. Luis Diaz will be sidelined for six weeks, meaning he won’t be back available until after the World Cup. Trent Alexander-Arnold suffered an ankle injury and will be out for several weeks. Andy Robertson, Naby Keita, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Arthur remain unavailable.

Rangers vs Liverpool Prediction:

Rangers were awful at Anfield last week, so I expect much better display now. It is simple, they can't play worse than that. And I think they are able to cover the handicap. There are three reasons for my pick. First is the home advantage, second is connect with the Reds crisis, while the third reason is connect with the fact Klopp is without three important players - Luis Diaz, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andy Robertson. The atmosphere in Liverpool squad isn't at desired level.

Rangers vs Liverpool Pick: Rangers +1.5 AH @ 1.89 with Pinnacle

No home advantage for Shakhtar, the match will be played in Poland. Benzema was rested for the weekend, so he will start fresh. Everything looks on Real side, but who knows? Maybe the surprise will happen?

Napoli vs AFC Ajax

Napoli have a deeper bench than Ajax to handle many fronts in the meantime. Besides, Napoli have the home advantage. Napoli are going to beat Ajax easily in the forthcoming game.

Pick: 1

BTTS: Y

Agree, plus Tadic out suspended. Napoli should win and secure the knock-out phase.

Barcelona vs Inter Preview:

Possible starting lineups:

Barcelona:
Ter Stegen; Roberto, Pique, E. Garcia, Alonso; Gavi, Busquets, Pedri; Dembele, Lewandowski, Fati

Inter:
Onana; Skriniar, De Vrij, Bastoni; Dumfries, Barella, Calhanoglu, Mkhitaryan, Dimarco; Lautaro Martinez, Dzeko

Barcelona will welcome Inter Milan to Camp Nou for a key encounter on Wednesday night. The Catalans are third in Group C, three points behind second-placed Inter and six behind leaders Bayern Munich. Inter won 1:0 the reverse fixture last week thanks to Hakan Calhanoglu's goal in the finish of the first half. Nevertheless, there were some controversial referee's decisions. The most notable incident came in the 67th minute, Fati equalized the result, but VAR decided to disallow the goal. According to them, Fati had his hand raised and the ball was pushed into his fingers. The goal was ruled out via VAR, and Barcelona manager Xavi was booked for complaining to the referee. As it was expected, the Blaugrana had 72% possession, but failed to score.

It wasn't much different for the weekend. Barcelona hosted Celta Vigo at Camp Nou in a match where Xavi's men missed lot of good opportunities, though Pedri scored the lone goal after huge mistake by the opponents' defense. Nevertheless, the Catalans are once again sharing top of La Liga, level on points with Real Madrid, ahead of Sunday's El Clasico at Santiago Bernabeu. However, Xavi must stay focused on Inter as victory here is essential. Barca have lost their last two matches in the Champions League, going down 2:0 at Bayern and 1:0 at Inter. About the team news, Frenkie de Jong is back from injury, but six other players remain out injured - Franck Kessie, Andreas Christensen, Hector Bellerin, Ronald Araujo, Memphis Depay and Jules Kounde.

Inter have six points from the first three matches of Group C. They managed to beat Plzen 2:0 as guests and Barcelona six days ago. Bayern Munich seems too strong and they sit on the first place with maximal effect. During the weekend Inter beat Sassuolo 2:1, with Eden Dzeko scoring both goals. The Black and Blues progressed through the group stage of last season's Champions League, but were eliminated by Liverpool in Round of 16. Coach Simone Inzaghi will be missing five players due to injuries - Dalbert, Marcelo Brozovic, Alex Cordaz, Joaquin Correa and Gabriel Brazao. Romelu Lukaku is rated as doubtful as he is recovering from the muscular problem. Most probably he will start from the bench as Dzeko and Lautaro Martinez should start in attack.

Barcelona vs Inter Prediction:


I expect a low scoring match at Camp Nou. Usually Barcelona are efficient, but the last period isn't like that - the Catalans have scored just one goal on the last two matches in all competitions. And Inter will try to "kill the game." They are Italians and they will do everything to stay unbeaten.

Barcelona vs Inter Pick:
Under 3.0 goals @ 1.92 with Pinnacle

Great prediction. What were the odds pre match? I would have never went against Real, especially with a club that's from a country in a war.
