Hello fam. Have you realized what is about to happen tonight? It’s the UEFA Champions League, guys! The second round of games in the round of 16 is here. Manchester City return to Europe this time, with a potentially crucial match against Ligue 1 hotcakes Monaco. Also, Bayer Leverkusen will take on Atletico Madrid. Let’s look into these games, shall we?
What are the chances of Manchester City beating Monaco? In the eyes of many, their chances are not that robust. Manchester City are currently second in the Premier League; however, this is just because their title rivals aren’t taking their chances. However, Pep Guardiola is not someone to be taken lightly; the former Barcelona boss masterminded a thrashing of his old club late last year. I’m pretty confident he can do it again.
However, Monaco are on a roll right now. they are currently on top of the Ligue 1. They have an arraynof some of the best attacking talentin Europe right now; Radamel Falcao has found his golscoring boots, the same ones he had at Atletico Madrid. Kylian Mbappe recently received praise from Thierry Henry himself; that’s the guy that everyone says he plays like. Well, there will definitely be a terrific game tonight, regardless of who wins. However, I’m leaning towards Monaco.
Elsewhere, Bayer Leverkusen will play host to Atletico Madrid. Well, of recent, there has been a bit of improvement in the Bayer Leverkusen performance. They won their last game, of course; this is always a confidence boost. They might just go on and win this one. However, Bayer Leverkusen are up against very formidable foes.
Atletico Madrid won their last game comprehensively. Even more spectacular is the manner in which they won it. They were staring a draw in the face until the 80th minute. Then Kevin Gamiero came on; this dude went on to score a 4-minute hat-trick. Well, it goes without saying that on their best days, Atletico Madrid are unstoppable. However, will tonight be one of those nights? Let’s watch and see.
