Champions League predictions for all 16 games as 2019/20 season begins – Squawka

This is another astonishing ingredient!!

The Champions League is back with a bang!Matchday one of the 2019/20 season kicks off with some showstopping matches. Champions Liverpool begin their defence away to Napoli, 2018/19’s dark horses Ajax host the impressive Lille and Barcelona travel to take on high-flying Borussia Dortmund. But the true heavyweight clashes come on Wednesday as PSG host Real Madrid and Juventus travel to the Spanish capital to play Atlético in a quarter-final rematch.We’ve had two members of our team take a look at each game, analyse how it may play out and give their predictions.TuesdayLyon vs. ZenitMuhammad Butt: Lyon are having an inconsistent season in Ligue 1 and currently sit eighth, and in Zenit they find an in-form opponent who are second in Russia. It won’t be easy, but Memphis Depay and Moussa Dembélé should have enough firepower to seal it. 3-2 Lyon.Steve Jennings: Lyon have a good chance of progressing from their group so long as they win their home games. They’ve been handed an opportunity start as they mean to go on against Zenit, but their mixed league start is a cause for concern going into this one. Zenit, meanwhile, have lost just one of their nine league games this season and could grab a point here. 1-1 draw.PLAYER TO WATCH: MEMPHIS DEPAY created more chances (26) and registered more assists (4) than any other Lyon player in last season’s Champions League.Inter vs. Slavia PragueMB: Inter are top of Serie A and have won three games out of three. You’d expect they will have far too much in every phase of play to be troubled by Slavia Prague, who will be praying for one of the Nerazzuri’s famous off-days. 2-0 Inter.SJ: Inter may well be one of the dark horses in this season’s Champions League campaign. With Antonio Conte at the wheel and a fresh Romelu Lukaku banging in the goals, the Italian giants will be confident about getting off to a good start, though Slavia Prague might give them some problems after beginning Czech season. 3-1 Inter.PLAYER TO WATCH: LAUTARO MARTINEZ has scored four goals in his last four games for club and country.Napoli vs. LiverpoolMB: The Reds lost in Naples last season, and Carlo Ancelotti’s men have shown a tremendous ability to score goals this season (nine is the highest any side has managed in Serie A) even if they concede them easily, as well. Expect a fireworks display with the European champions showing enough to prevail. 3-4 Liverpool.SJ: It’s bizarre to think Liverpool lost all three of their group games on the road last season before going on to win the Champions League. One of those defeats was at Napoli, so revenge will be on the menu for the Merseysiders this time around. If Roberto Firmino keeps up his current form, Jurgen Klopp’s men should create plenty of chances to win it. 1-3 Liverpool.PLAYER TO WATCH: TRENT ALEXANDER-ARNOLD created more big chances (7) than any other defender in last season’s Champions League.Chelsea vs. ValenciaMB: Valencia are in disarray having sacked their manager just last week and subsequently been smashed by Barcelona. In contrast, Chelsea seem to be riding Tammy Abraham’s goals to victory right now, but their defence is weak and Valencia showed at the Camp Nou that they are capable counterpunchers. 2-2 draw.SJ: Everything Tammy Abraham touches seems to be turning to gold at the moment. His hat-trick against Wolves confirmed he is well and truly on a stre
