UEFA Champions League

4 Teams That Could Land You A Congratulations Message Tonight.

Finding ways to correct mistakes witnessed from temporary defeats, learning from failure and constantly improving are the key factors to success among top competitive teams. Below are 4 well inspected and predicted teams that have gained strength and possess the unshakable will to emerge triumphant tonight.

1. Burton vs Wigan.

Promotion to the English Championship League has felt very significant to Wigan with 6 remaining matches to reach the climax of the season.

The visitors head into this League One match in a buoyant mood having a commanding lead atop the league table with 86 points. This is after coming out unbeaten in their prior 8 matches (W6, D2).

In different conditions, Burton have been struggling to find their rhythm having managed only one win in their last 9 league establishments with 2 draws and 6 devastating defeats. They have dwindled to 17th place of the table currently with 48 points.

There is no question that Wigan are in a better shape to walk home with 3 points from this encounter.

2. Bayern Munich vs Villarreal.

Villarreal will travel to Allianz Arena for the second leg tie of the quarter-finals of the Champions League against Bayern Munich.

The Spanish side have been a team full of surprises in the European heavyweights competition this season. They head into this match with an advantage of one goal after prevailing 1-0 in the first leg.

Following both sides performances, the LaLiga side have won half of their last 6 competitive games (W3,D1,L2) while Bayern have lost once in their last 6 with 4 wins and one draw.

Villarreal look dangerous having eliminated Italian giants, Juventus from the UCL this season. A similar situation is likely to happen to the Bavarians.

After playing a tough and defensive game in the first leg, the visitors are certain to follow the same footsteps in this match and secure their ticket to the semi-finals. Villarreal could win or draw against Bayern Munich (X2).

3. Real Madrid vs Chelsea.

It will be a "do or die situation" for Chelsea when they lock horns with Real Madrid at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu for the second leg match of the last 8 of the Champions League.

Thomas Tuchel's side are optimistic going into this match having humiliated Southampton 6-0 in their most recent league match. They have now recorded 7 wins in their last 9 competitive matches with 2 defeats.

Real Madrid who currently have a lead of 3-1 on aggregate over Chelsea won 2-0 against Getafe in their recent LaLiga game. Carlo Ancelotti's men have now lost once in their last 9 matches in all competitions with 8 wins.

The Blues ought to fulfill their promise of making a comeback against the Spain giants. Being only 2 goals behind means that the window is still open for the Premier League outfits to turn the score sheet around.

Chelsea have proved to have the potential to make a difference. They have a high possibility of cruising past the hosts and put themselves in the conversation of the UCL semifinalists.

4. Zamalek vs Pharco.

Zamalek will be in search of their path to the top of the Egypt Premier League table when they come to grips with Pharco in the 14th round.

The hosts have subscribed to an electric run of performance having won 4 league games in a row. This has inspired them to second place of the table with 31 points, same as table leaders Al Ahly Cairo but separated by goals scored.

On the other hand, Pharco at 8th place with 17 points have a long way to go to arrive at their expectations. They are winless in their last 4 league commitments with 2 draws and 2 defeats. Their chances of winning this match are minimal.

The hosts aim to keep the positive momentum going with a fifth consecutive win against Pharco. They are considered the favourites to emerge jubilant from this affair. More than one goal are expected.
