Below is a preview of the Champions League games to by played tonight


The UEFA Champions League continues tonight and we are looking at fixtures – predicting their respective outcomes, relaying injuries and suspension news.

Below are Match Day 3 fixtures of the Champions League to be played on Tuesday, October 18

Group E

Bayer Leverkusen vs Tottenham Hotspur

Spurs have not been entirely convincing in the Champions League this season and Leverkusen have not fared better. On paper, the English side look better but they are missing some crucial players.

Harry Kane, Moussa Dembele, Kyle Walker and Toby Alderweirld are sure absentees while Lars Bender and Karim Bellarabi should be absent for the home side with injuries.

Predicted scorline: Bayer Leverkusen 1 – 3 Tottenham

CSKA Moscow vs Monaco

Monaco have been one of the best teams in the Champions League this season with a draw and a win from their two games. CSKA meanwhile are flattering to deceive with a draw and a defeat.

CSKA will be missing Alan Dzagoev, Eremenko and Akinfeev while Monaco are without Dirar, Elmany Toure and Radamel Falcao.

Predicted scoreline: CSKA 1 – 2 Monaco

Group F

Real Madrid vs Legia Warszawa

These are the kind of games Cristiano Ronaldo loves; just ask the Molde et al. However, Luka Modric, Casemiro and Sergio Ramos are expected to also miss the game due to respective injuries.

Possible line ups:

Real Madrid: Navas; Danilo, Pepe, Varane, Nacho; Kovačić, Kroos, Rodríguez; Bale, Morata, Ronaldo.

Legia: Malarz; Bereszyński, Czerwiński, Rzeźniczak, Hlousek; Radović, Moulin, Jodłowiec, Odjidja, Guilherme; Nikolić.

Predicted scoreline: Real Madrid 8 – 1 Legia (Ronaldo to score four) — You think this is impossible?

Sporting CP vs Borussia Dortmund

Quite a number of Dortmund players have been plagued with series of injuries coming into this game.

The German side will be missing a mammoth eleven players (and three left backs) and this could give Sporting right winger Gelson Martins a free roam. Despite the absentees, Dortmund have a large enough squad to trouble Sporting.

Possible line ups

Sporting: Rui Patrício; João Pereira, Coates, Ruben Semedo, Zeegelaar; William Carvalho, Elías, Bruno César, Gelson, Bryan Ruiz; Dost.

Dortmund: Bürki; Piszczek, Bartra, Ginter, Passlack; Weigl; Pulišić, Götze, Kagawa, Dembélé; Aubameyang.

Predicted scoreline: Sporting 2 – 3 Dortmund

Group G

Club Brugge vs FC Porto

Porto come into this game knowing they can get the full three points if they convert their chances.

The Portuguese side are too talented for the Belgians who shipped four goals in their last encounter against FC Koebenhavn.

Possible line-ups

Club Brugge: Butelle; Van Rhijn, Poulain, Denswil, Cools; Claudemir, Simons; Vanaken, Vormer, Gedoz; Vossen

Porto: Casillas; Layún, Felipe, Marcano, Alex Telles; Danilo, Herrera, Otávio, Óliver, Diogo Jota; André Silva

Predicted scoreline: Brugge 1 – 4 Porto

Leicester City vs FC Koebenhavn

Leicester might be floundering in the league but there is no stopping them in the Champions League with two wins from two games. FC Koebenhavn just do not posses enough threat despite their 4 – 0 win over Club Brugge last time out.

Group H

Dinamo Zagreb vs Sevilla

On paper Sevilla look too good and a look at the table shows they can progress after posting one win and one draw in two games. Dinamo will miss Goncalo and Leskovic however.

Possible line-ups

Dinamo Zagreb: Livaković; Stojanovič, Sigali, Schildenfeld, Pivarić; Machado, Jonas, Soudani, Antolić, Fernandes; Henríquez.

Sevilla: Rico; Mariano, Rami, Mercado, Escudero; Vázquez, Kranevitter, Ganso; Vitolo, Ben Yedder, Sarabia.

Predicted scoreline: Dinamo 0 – 4 Sevilla

Lyon vs Juventus

Juventus are definitely the favourites to win this game but with the likes of Chiellini, Pjaca, Mandzukic, Lichtsteiner, Rugani, Marchisio, Asamoah all out, Lyon could cause a few problems.

The Italian champions should go with a 4-3-1 -2 formation with Paolo Dybala and Gonzalo Higuain upfront, Hernanes behind them in the middle, while Pjanic, Lemina and Sami Khedira complete the midfield.
