We’re at the business end of the group stages – there’s only a couple of games to go. There are a few teams already through, but lots of teams are still looking for points.

Chelsea vs Juventus 

This should be massive. Two giants of European football, fighting for that top position in the group. We’ve said that it’s important in previous seasons, but I’m not so sure, I don’t think that finishing second is detrimental in any way. People argue that you get a tougher draw in the knockout stages, but not necessarily – you’ve got to play all the top teams in the competition at some point. I think this could play out like both teams just need a draw. 

Squad selection is always important around this time of the season, I think there will be players rested in this game. Both teams are virtually through. If Chelsea lose it gives Zenit an incentive to catch them, but I just think there’s too much for them to do. I think there’s going to be plenty of changes and I don’t think there’s gonna be much happening in the game. I’m going to go with Chelsea to sneak it with a 1-0 win.

Manchester City vs PSG

The big glamour game. Wow, some money on show here. So much quality as well. I’m really looking forward to it, it could be anything this game. An absolute world-class cracker or it could be a bit of a dead rubber. There’s still points up for grabs, though. 

Leipzig are the disappointment in the group and Brugges have shot themselves in the foot, losing the way they did in the last match having had a couple of great results in this competition. Can they get back? Their only four points behind City, but I don’t think they have the quality. So, in that respect, I think the two teams, City and PSG, will go through. 

We’ve seen the good side and the ugly side of PSG this season, Messi is still finding his feet after his move, Gini Wijnaldum the same – although he scored two in the last round. For Man City, does Pep make lots of changes? He can because he’s got lots of quality to come in – I think he will. And so can PSG, we’ll have to see how the teams line up. 

I think the two teams will go at each other. Pochettino would love to make a statement. I think Pep would love to make a statement against the moneybags of the Qatari-owned Paris Saint Germain. So, I’m going to say there’s going to be goals in it. I’m going to go for a high-scoring Manchester City win, 3-2.
