Champions League Tuesday Predicted Scorelines: Manchester United on the brink, Manchester City need a win

Champions League Trophy

If some parts of a long season can feel a little like a procession, Match Day 6 of The Champions League is certainly a period to make the football fan sweaty of brow, tingly of spine and squeaky of bum.

And this year the final round of the group stages is particularly pertinent to the English clubs, most of whom still aren’t over the line. Manchester United and Arsenal are in especially dangerous waters but both have the quality to navigate tough away trips if they find form at the right time.

TFF offers its predictions for all the fixtures on Tuesday to those who may fancy an accumulator with astronomical odds:

PSG v Shaktar Donetsk

PSG are our dark horses for the title this season. In reality, dark horses rarely win but PSG have a superb blend of power, skill and experience and no one will want to draw them in the knockout phase.

PSG 2 – Shaktar 1

Real Madrid vs Malmö FF

A home win guarantees top spot and just two points dropped in Group A for Real Madrid. And we fully expect 3 points for Los Blancos.


Real Madrid 3 – 0 Malmo

VfL Wolfsburg vs Manchester United

Such a tough one to call. A betting man would surely go for a draw based on the recent form of both sides. But Manchester United need a win to be sure of qualification so perhaps we will see some more urgency from them on Tuesday evening. They certainly have wonderful quality in their side – not least from this man.

Anthony Martial

Wolfsburg 1 – 2 Manchester United

Manchester City vs B M’gladbach

Manchester City can be bewitching one week before getting battered the next. City’s form can be partly mitigated by a lengthy injury list to key players.

They could win this one and still not finish top. But at least they have qualified this time.

Manchester City 2 – 1 B M’gladbach


PSV Eindhoven vs CSKA

PSV probably have to win this one if they want to progress. But CSKA are no pushovers, as Manchester United learnt.

PSV 2 – 1 CSKA Moscow

Benfica vs Atletico Madrid

They have both qualified but are fighting for 1st place in the group.

Benfica 1 – 2 Atletico Madrid

Galatasaray vs FC Astana

Gala should get the home win or draw required to see them into The Europa League last 32.

Galatasaray 1 – FC Astana 0

Sevilla vs Juventus

Sevilla are out of The Champions League but will want to confirm their place in The Europa League. Meanwhile, Juventus have top spot in sight.

Sevilla 1 – 1 Juventus
