Club Brugge arrive knowing they cannot make it into the last 16 of the competition but a win would ensure they drop into the Europa League. On the other side, Real Madrid already know they will finish 2nd in the group, regardless of the result in Belgium. Nonetheless, now unbeaten in 9 games, of which they’ve won 7, Real will want to keep their good form going. With Galatasaray expected to lose at PSG, Brugge should drop into the Europa League no matter what happens in this game but winning it is the only way they can be sure. This should be an interesting game to watch, because both of these teams should come into this game relaxed. The standings in this group are pretty much clear and we can expect a game with lots of opportunities and goals as well.
ProTipster Expert's Tip: over 3.5 goals at 2.47
This is one of the most interesting games in this week fixture. Both of these teams are fighting for their spot in Europa League. The stakes are big and this game is definitely going to be a tactical chess game because none of these teams can afford mistakes anymore. Olympiakos are bottom of this Champions League group and are already unable to reach the knockout stages. The same applies to the visitors Red Star Belgrade. The home side's only missing player ahead of this game is Pape Abou Cisse, who misses the encounter due to illness. Red Star, on the other hand, have no injury concerns in preparation for this encounter. Bookies are favorizing Olympiakos but we believe that Red Star have big chances to at least get a draw from this game which will lead them to the Europa League knockout stages.
ProTipster Expert's Tip: Red Star Belgrade double chance (x2) at 1.98
Dinamo Zagreb will host Manchester City in the final round of matches in Group C of the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday. Ahead of the game, Dinamo Zagreb have five points and are placed third while City are top with 11 points. While City have already secured top spot, Dinamo Zagreb, as the two other teams in the group, can finish second. Nenad Bjelica's side will now have to produce the performance of their lives and hope other results go their way, in order to create a slice of history in this competition. City will be without John Stones, who suffered a thigh injury against United, while Sergio Aguero is also unlikely to be risked in this game. Other than that, both teams should have all of their players on the roster.
We believe that Dinamo have spent their chances against Shakhtar and Atalanta. Manchester City is just too strong for them and we believe that Manchester City are going to win confidently.

Wednesday’s football match at BayArena puts together Bayer Leverkusen and Juventus. The Bianconeri have already clinched the top position in Group D. Bayer Leverkusen, on the other hand, are still in the race for a place in the Champions League knockout stages, they have to win in order to keep their hopes alive and they also need some other results in their favor. Juventus have already secured top spot in Group D and will have little to play for. The Italians may opt to rest key players, because they have not done well in the league so they have to be careful with the injuries. This should be an advantage to Bayer Leverkusen, who are playing at home in a must win game. Considering these facts that Juventus does not have anything to play for in this game, we believe that they will rest their key players so that they can do well in league. Bayer Leverkusen have a quality and if Juventus puts their second squad in this match, we believe that Leverkusen are going to win easily.
ProTipster Expert's Tip: Bayer Leverkusen to win at 2.09
Liverpool need just a draw against Red Bull Salzburg to go through to the last 16 and could also qualify with a defeat if Napoli lose at home to bottom of the table Genk. But they are definitely going to rely on themselves because it is hard to imagine that Genk can do any harm to Napoli. That means that this is a must-win game for them. On the other side, if Red Bull Salzburg wins, Liverpool is out! Bookies are favorizing Liverpool and they should. Liverpool have a much more experience and they are also defending their last year title. There is some top-class attacking talent in Liverpool and ultimately we are backing the current champions to have the experience and somehow to get the result they need to secure top spot.
ProTipster Expert's Tip: Liverpool to win at 1.85
It is a tight finish in Champions League Group F and Inter must aim for no less than a win when they welcome FC Barcelona this Tuesday. Inter start this game level on 7 points with Borussia Dortmund, on the other side Barcelona have already qualified. Valverde is going to send a lot of second squad players on the pitch. Semedo, Jordi Alba, Pique, Dembele, Messi are all not available for this game. Bookies are highly favorizing Inter in this game, just because of Valverde's rotations in the lineup. However, Barcelona have a lot of great players and great depth, all players are fighting for their spot in the first lineup so they will all definitely give their best. Even with this mixed lineup, Barcelona is a bit better team than Inter. What goes in our favor is that Inter are going to play under the pressure because this is a must win game for them. Barcelona on the other side will play without any pressure. Odds on Barcelona are way too high and we definitely have a value bet on them. We believe that they can win, but however we are going with the safer option, double chance.
ProTipster Expert's Tip: Barcelona +1 at 1.97
A point is all RB Leipzig need to stay on the top of the group, however they have already qualified. On the other side, Lyon won 2-0 in Germany so a win in this game will take them into the knockout stages. Both of these clubs have been scoring and conceding regularly of late. Lyon have to attack as they look to get through to the last sixteen and need to get a better result than Zenit achieve away at Portugal. With that being said, we believe that we will watch an open game with lots of chances. All key players should be fit and ready for both teams. There are some players that are still questionable but they are not playing a big role for any of these teams. This game is a really important game for Lyon and Leipzig, however Lyon have to attack and go for it because they must win this game to go into the knockout stages. We believe that there will be many goals scored in this game because Lyon have to open up the space from the very start, and that means that they are either gonna punish Leipzig or they will get punished.
ProTipster Expert's Tip: over 2.5 goals at 1.66
Chelsea are on the 3rd spot but have 8 points the same as Valencia in 2nd and Ajax has 10 points in first place. Chelsea’s qualification is in the balance, but they will be at home against Lille who are already eliminated in 4th place and only have 1 point. Chelsea will be the favourites to win this match and simply will have to for the chance to reach the knockout rounds. It is clear that Lille are the poorest side in the group and because they are performing well in Ligue 1 it means that they should rest some key players for this game which would make perfect sense. There is no point for them to go with their first squad because that would not make any difference because they are already out. Chelsea is ofcourse a far better team than Lille. This game is a must win game for them and if they do not make some horrific mistakes, they should be able to destroy Lille.
ProTipster Expert's Tip: Chelsea -2 at 2.17
