Champions League Fixtures and match predictions for Wednesday

Juventus vs Chelsea 

Kaio Jorge (Muscular problems), Adrien Rabiot (Ankle problems), Paulo Dybala (Muscular problems), Arthur (Surgery) and Álvaro Morata (Torn Muscle Fibre) won’t be available for Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri.

Team News: Chelsea

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has to choose from a squad that has some fitness concerns. Christian Pulisic (Ankle Injury) and Mason Mount (Unknown Injury) are those who can’t be considered.

Prediction

We’re inclined to think that Juventus will do well to breach the defence of this Chelsea side who we think should manage to get a goal of their own in a winning performance.

We’re therefore predicting a very competitive game with a 0-1 victory for Chelsea at the end of the 90 minutes.


Zenit St Petersburg vs Malmö

The Zenit St Petersburg boss Sergei Semak has zero fitness concerns at all coming into this game thanks to a fully injury-free group available to choose from.

Team News: Malmö

Malmö boss Jon Tomasson has to choose from a squad that has some fitness concerns. Oscar Lewicki (Knee Injury), Patriot Sejdiu (Cruciate Ligament Injury), Jonas Knudsen (Knee Injury) and Ola Toivonen (Knee Injury) are names that won’t be on the team sheet.

Prediction

Our assessment is that Zenit St Petersburg will more than likely get amongst the goals when they line up against Malmö FF, who could well struggle to score.

Our tip is for a 2-0 winning margin for Zenit St Petersburg by the time that the referee blows the final whistle.


Atalanta vs BSC Young Boys 

Hans Hateboer (Unknown Injury) and Luis Muriel (Thigh Problems) will be missing for Atalanta gaffer Gian Gasperini.

Team News: BSC Young Boys

BSC Young Boys manager David Wagner has to contend with a number of unavailable players. Joël Monteiro (Knee Surgery), Nico Maier (Unknown Injury), Fabian Lustenberger (Achilles tendon rupture), Esteban Petignat (Unknown Injury), Cédric Zesiger (Bruised Foot), Jean-Pierre Nsame (Achilles tendon rupture) and Leandro Zbinden (Unknown Injury) won’t be making appearances.

Prediction

In this match, BSC Young Boys will likely create enough chances to put one past this Atalanta lineup, however that isn’t expected to be enough to prevent defeat.

Our tip is for a very close game with a 2-1 advantage for Atalanta at the end of the 90 minutes.
