Paris Saint Germain vs Barcelona
Benfica vs Borussia Dortmund
Bayern Munich vs Arsenal
Real Madrid vs Napoli
Marquee Match of the Week
The honor goes to Paris Saint Germain vs Barcelona. Both the teams will see this as a contest at a most inconvenient time. PSG are trying to catch up with Monaco in the French Ligue1, while Barcelona are in yet another jostling match with Real Madrid for the top position in the Liga. Both the teams are unbeaten in their league for the last six matches. If you just glance through the team sheets, you could see that Barca are slightly superior, especially in attack. PSG will have the home advantage. However, Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi find their habitual moments of magic, it could be all over for PSG. Prediction for online betting: Barcelona to force a narrow win.
Other Interesting Matches
Arsenal vs Bayern Munich should be another great match to watch. Bayern Munich, for the first time in last few years, appear vulnerable for teams like Arsenal. Their golden generation seem to have passed their best days. Arsenal can be frustrating at times, against some poor teams. But this could be their best chance to go past Bayern. They will be looking for a draw here, preferably a 1-1 draw which will give them an away goal. That could be a handy result wager on in online betting too.
Real Madrid at home will be a bit too much for Napoli. The return match could be much more interesting. Expect Madrid to win comfortably. Benfica will have the upper hand at home against Dortmund. The German team has blown away the momentum from a good start, while Benefic are still at top at the Portuguese top division.
