Champions League - the main questions of the 4th round

Champions League - the main questions of the 4th round

The fourth round of the Champions League, which kicked off this Tuesday, is not as rich in iconic confrontations as expected from the main European club tournament. Only a few matches are interesting in their own way, in most of the games the layouts are strongly in favor of one of the clubs. But, of course, everyone will worry about their favorite teams, even when their chances are slim.

Group A at first glance seems offensively predictable. The two leaders - Bayern Munich and Atlético - host outsiders - Salzburg and Lokomotiv Moscow. The latter's chances of success are about 10 to 1, so none privateer will not advise you to bet on these commands. But if someone takes a point, it will be a significant help in the fight for the Europa League.

In Group B, Borussia Mönchengladbach will try to beat Shakhtar for the second time, which will practically secure their place in the playoffs. And in Milan the most interesting match of the tour will take place - "Inter" takes "Real". For the Italians this is the last chance to compete for the exit from the group - now they are in last place with two points.

In group C, things are not as hopeless as in A - the leaders play away, which means that Olympiacos and Marseille have speculative chances against Manchester City and Porto. But the main fights will take place next week, when the strongest and weakest teams will compete with each other.

In Group D, Ajax take over Midtjylland and it is unlikely that the Danish club will score their first point in the tournament. Prospects for Atalanta Miranchuk in Liverpool are assessed by everyone as not so hopeless.

In Group E, outsiders Krasnodar and Rennes play at home with favorites Sevilla and Chelsea. The one who can take points in these meetings will secure an advantage in the future face-to-face duel.

In Group F, few people believe that Club Brugge will be able to repeat the away triumph of St. Petersburg against Borussia. Zenit, on the other hand, needs to score points in Rome for the chances of a European spring.

Group G promises us two more matches with a predictable result. Barcelona, ​​even in its current state, looks much stronger than Dynamo Kiev, the success of Ferencvaros away against Juventus is also unlikely.

Group H looks the most interesting. Both Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain lost away to rivals in the last round, and will now try to take revenge at home. For “Istanbul” and “Leipzig”, the upcoming matches are a chance to prove that their successes are not accidental, the teams are able to fight for the exit from the group.
