S.L. Benfica @ Manchester United F.C. (-1.5)
Benfica [+1.5]: (-120)
Manchester United [+1.5]: (+104)
Manchester United are back on track after a tricky week as they did what they do best on Saturday as they beat Spurs 1-0. In this game, we saw their defensive backline completely shut down Spurs as they pretty much had one major chance. United now host Benfica who are coming off a win that kept them in third place in their domestic league. For me, this is an easy win for United, they have been amazing in the Champions League as they have conceded only one goal in three matches. I see United dominating, and going up against a Benfica team with ZERO points in the Champions League; they will need to push forward which will leave them vulnerable at the back, which is exactly what United want.
Prediction: Manchester United to win 2-0
FC Barcelona (-1.5) @ Olympiacos F.C.
Oympiacos [+1.5]: (+102)
Barcelona [+1.5]: (-118)
Barcelona has been amazing this season as even throughout all of the drama going on with their future in La Liga up in the air due to the Catalonian vs. Spain conflict (which I know very little about so let's move on) as they are top of La Liga with nine wins, one draw and zero loses. They now go to beautiful Greece to play the bottom of the group Olympiacos as with a win they will pretty much secure the top spot going into the knockout stages. Obviously, we all know about Lionel Messi, but the reason I think they will cover this spread is due to their role players, since his shock signing for Barca, Paulinho has been amazing as everyone has raised their game since losing Neymar. I mean, it's Barca folks, they will win easily.
Prediction: Barcelona to win 3-0
