1 Manchester United vs Barcelona
Manchester United are unbeaten in each of their last 17 competitive matches at Old Trafford, winning 15. United have only lost 2 of their previous 11 UEFA games at the theatre of dreams, winning 6. Those 2 defeats were against Spanish opponents.
FC Barcelona are unbeaten in each of their last 18 games in all competitions, winning 16 times during that run. Barca are also unbeaten in their last 5 UEFA matches versus Manchester United (W4D1), winning 1:0 during their last visit to Old Trafford.
Manchester United's struggles against Spanish opponents makes Barça the likely winners of tonight's clash.
2 Lech Poznan vs Bodo/Glimt
Lech Poznan are in pole position to qualify to the next round of UECL after they held Bodo/Glimt to 0:0 draw last Thursday. The Polish champions are unbeaten in their last 7 UEFA home games, winning 6 times. Bodo/Glimt ,meanwhile, are winless in their last 9 away matches in Europe (D3L6). Lech Poznan are, therefore, the likely winners of tonight's match.
3 Monaco vs Bayer Leverkusen
Monaco have only lost 1 of their 11 competitive games since the return from the World Cup break, winning 8 times during that run. Monaco have also won their last 3 competitive home games, including a 3:1 success over PSG. Bayer Leverkusen, meanwhile, have 4 defeats from their last 5 competitive games.
Leverkusen's 3:2 home defeat to Monaco means that the Germans have only won 1 of the previous 7 UEFA h2hs (D2L4). With these stats in mind, we are backing AS Monaco to win tonight.
4 Fiorentina vs Braga
After thrashing Braga 4:0 in the first leg, Fiorentina have all but qualified to the next round of the UEFA Europa Conference League. Having won each of their last 5 UECL games, we fancy Fiorentina to win again tonight.
5 CFR Cluj vs Lazio
CFR Cluj are still in contention for a place in the next round of the UECL after narrowly losing to Lazio last Thursday. The Romanians have only lost 1 of their last 6 UECL home games (W5) while Lazio have only 1 win from their last 15 away UEFA matches (D5L9).
Having won 2:1 in their last home game versus Lazio, we fancy CFR Cluj to triumph again tonight.
6 Basel vs Trabzonspor
Trabzonspor have only won 1 of their last 9 away games, losing 6. The visitors have also lost each of their last 5 away UEFA matches, including a 2:0 defeat to Basel. Therefore, we are backing Basel to win this match.
7 Rennes vs Shakhtar Donetsk
Rennes ended their 3-match losing streak with a hard-fought 2:0 victory over Clermont last weekend. That 2:0 victory against Clermont was only their fourth win in 10 competitive games (L6). Rennes are also without a win from their previous 2 meetings with Ukrainian side Shakhtar Donetsk.
Based on these stats, Shakhtar are the likely winners of tonight's match.
