UCL Matchday 2: 3 Teams That May Lose in Today's Match

The Champions League continues this midweek as 16 matches have been scheduled to take place from Tuesday to Wednesday. The first eight matches of the matchday 2 of the Champions League will take place tonight with a lot of interesting and fascinating matches coming our way.


Below are the three teams that may lose this midweek due to the difficult fixture ahead of them.


1. Paris Saint-Germain:

Match: PSG vs Man City

Venue: Paris

Time: 08:00 PM

Paris Saint-Germain will be looking to grab their first win in this season's Champions League when they host Manchester City in Paris on Tuesday night. Mauricio Pochettino's Paris Saint-Germain crumbled to a disappointing 1-1 draw in their opening fixture against Club Brugge.

Manchester City on the other hand is growing from strength to strength and are in a good form to bear Paris Saint-Germain today. Manchester City made defending Champions Chelsea looked like an average team as Pep Guardiola display his tactical genuine last weekend. Again, Pep Guardiola has a good head-to-head history against PSG coach, Mauricio Pochettino which may also play a part in today's encounter.

Paris Saint-Germain is likely to lose today and even the presence of Lionel Messi may not save them.


2. Liverpool:

Match: Porto vs Liverpool

Venue: Portugal

Time: 08:00 PM

Liverpool has been in good form this season in the Premier League where they sit on top of the table with 14 points. However Liverpool performance has not been convincing as they struggled in their Champions League opening fixture.

Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool were outplayed in their Champions League opening fixture against AC Milan and only needed luck to win. Porto has been a strong force in the Champions League and will be playing in their home Stadium which gives them an edge over Liverpool.

Porto held a strong Atletico Madrid to a goalless draw in their first fixture and are in good mental shape to defeat Liverpool tonight.


3. Atletico Madrid:

Match: AC Milan vs Atletico Madrid

Venue: Italy

Time: 08:00 PM

Atletico Madrid were unable to defeat FC Porto in their UCL opening fixture despite playing in their home Stadium. Atletico Madrid will be facing a strong AC Milan team tonight at the San Siro and their chances of winning is slim.
