    Analysis:

    Over 2.5 goals has paid off in 15 out of 16 away games for Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga this season. The Bavarians are very dangerous in attack, but they are defensively vulnerable, so their away games have averaged 4.25 goals. Real Madrid’s home games have averaged 3.07 goals in La Liga, and they played out a thrilling 3-3 draw with Manchester City at the Bernabéu in the last round. This should be another open, entertaining game between two attacking teams, and we should see over 2.5 goals.

    Analysis:

    This should prove to be an entertaining game between two teams that boast a wealth of elite attacking talent. Harry Kane is in superb form for Bayern, and the likes of Thomas Müller, Serge Gnabry and Jamal Musiala are also very dangerous. Yet Real Madrid is terrific on the counterattack, and the pace of Vinícius Júnior and Rodrygo could cause plenty of problems for the Bavarians. Both teams are missing key defenders, so this should be a high-scoring match.

    Analysis:

    These teams played out a pulsating 2-2 draw in London last week. They both looked shaky in defense and dangerous in attack, so the stage is set for an enthralling second leg. Bayern Munich has had no trouble finding the back of the net this season, with 49 goals in 15 home games in the Bundesliga. However, a weak defense has been its downfall on several occasions, and the Gunners have enough quality to exploit those frailties, so we should see both teams scoring and Over 2.5 goals in this game.

    Analysis:

    Manchester City should be too strong for Real Madrid when these teams meet at the Etihad Stadium on Wednesday. Pep Guardiola’s men should have a psychological advantage, as they eased to a 4-0 home win against Real Madrid last season. They are no longer quite so solid in defense, as evidenced when these teams drew 3-3 in Madrid last week. However, Man City has a lot of firepower within its ranks, and the likes of Erling Haaland, Phil Foden, Bernardo Silva, and Julián Álvarez should fire the home side to victory.

    Analysis:

    Atlético Madrid’s players will be hell-bent on earning a draw in this game. Los Rojiblancos are 2-1 up on aggregate after winning the first leg in Madrid last week. A draw would be enough to see them through to the Champions League semifinals, and they will fight tooth and nail to avoid defeat. They are resolute in defense and dangerous on the counterattack, so they look perfectly capable of getting a result at Westfalenstadion.

    Analysis:

    Atletico Madrid’s players will be well-rested for their Champions League clash with Borussia Dortmund this week. They have had a nine-day break since their last game, so Los Rojiblancos should be fresh and raring to go. Meanwhile, Dortmund suffered a 1-0 defeat to Stuttgart in a hard-fought clash on Saturday, so Der BVB could be a little fatigued. Atletico has home advantage, and its record at Metropolitano Stadium is excellent this season, so it should get the job done on Wednesday.

    Analysis:

    PSG is unbeaten in its last 27 games, so the players should be full of confidence as they prepare to host Barcelona at the Parc des Princes. It could prove to be a tight game between two evenly matched teams, but home advantage may just sway things in PSG’s favor. Manager Luis Enrique rested his key players at the weekend, so the likes of Kylian Mbappe will be in peak physical condition for this game. He has the quality to put Barcelona to the sword, and he could ultimately prove to be the difference between these teams on Wednesday.

    Analysis:

    These teams drew 1-1 in Madrid when they clashed in the Champions League last season. Los Blancos took the lead through Vinicius Junior, but Kevin de Bruyne restored parity with a powerful strike in the second half. Man City ended up winning the second leg 4-0 after outclassing Real Madrid in front of its home fans. City boss Pep Guardiola could follow a similar approach this time around – taking a cautious approach in the first leg and then displaying greater ambition in Manchester – so a draw is the most likely result on Tuesday.

    Analysis:

    This is an ideal time for Arsenal to face Bayern Munich. The Bavarians have suffered back-to-back defeats in the Bundesliga, and they are now 16 points behind title rival Bayer Leverkusen. Meanwhile, Arsenal has picked up 10 wins and a draw from its last 11 Premier League games, which has seen the Gunners storm to the top of the table. They have won their last six home matches, and they could expose Bayern’s defensive vulnerabilities on Tuesday.

    Analysis:

    Borussia Dortmund were unfortunate to only draw 1-1 with PSV when the teams locked horns in the Netherlands last month. Donyell Malen put Der BVB up 1-0, and the Dutch team only managed to equalize after being awarded a very soft penalty. The action now shifts to Germany, and the Dortmund fans will turn Signal Idunda Park into a cauldron of noise. Der BVB should be able to get the job done in front of their home fans.

The Blaugrana beat Antwerp 5-0, Shakhtar Donetsk 2-1 and Porto 2-1 en route to finishing top of their group. In La Liga, Barça’s home games have averaged 3.46 goals. Their Champions League round of 16 clash with Napoli is delicately poised at 1-1, and fans should witness an entertaining second leg on Tuesday. Napoli struggle defensively but have the attacking firepower to cause problems for Barça’s defense.

    Analysis:

    The Gunners are 1-0 down on aggregate in this two-legged Champions League clash after losing to Porto at Estadio Dragão last month. However, Arsenal look capable of turning things around in front of their home fans on Tuesday. They are top of the Premier League table after embarking on an eight-game winning streak, and their home record is impressive this season. Arsenal beat PSV 4-0, Sevilla 2-0 and Lens 6-0 at home in the group stage and have enough attacking quality to beat Porto by a two-goal margin too.

    Analysis:

    Real Madrid did well to beat RB Leipzig 1-0 in the first leg of this Champions League Round of 16 contest. Los Blancos now have star midfielder Jude Bellingham back from injury, and they should be too strong for the German team in this game. RB Leipzig is fifth in the Bundesliga table, and it has lost five out of 12 away games this season, so a trip to the Bernabéu in Madrid could prove daunting. It will need to take risks and attack, which could leave Leipzig vulnerable on the counterattack.

    Analysis:

    Arsenal should be too strong for Porto at Estádio do Dragão on Wednesday. The Gunners have fired in 21 goals in their last five matches, and they are full of confidence right now. They won their Champions League group without much trouble, and they look more solid in defense than Porto. Sergio Conçeicão’s side lost home and away against Barcelona in the group stage and has also struggled against Benfica and Sporting Lisbon in the domestic league this season. The odds on an away win for Arsenal look attractive.

    Analysis:

    This should be a high-scoring game between two teams that struggle to defend. Napoli have regressed badly since Luciano Spalletti left in the summer, but they still have a wealth of attacking talent, led by the creative Khvicha Kvaratskhelia. Barcelona also look strong in attack despite missing João Félix and Ferran Torres, so this looks like an entertaining game.
