Re: UEFA Champions/Europa League 2012-13 Thread

I'll be out when these are on so Prediction time:

Celtic 1-1 Juventus
Valencia 4-4 PSG
Shakhtar Donetsk 3-3 Borussia Dortmund

FINALLY....
Real Madrid 4-1 Man Utd
The big one. It's gonna be one of THOSE nights for United. gonna have too much for that defence, for once they won't be up against your Bobby Zamoras, or your Sheola Ameobis or your Fernando Torreses, they will be up against one of the GOATS.

Also, their midfield will have no match for Madrids. and a poor man's Alonso up against a man with over 100 caps in the GOAT international midfield?

The referee is from Germany so inb4 "Typical Germans"

Re: UEFA Champions/Europa League 2012-13 Thread

Our Attacking Strategy against Barcelona was simple, get a Free Kick in the Barcelona half or better yet a corner kick since there were almost like penalties for us all we had to do was aim for Wanyama or Samaras and if the delivery was right then it was a goal, but against a team live Juventus then getting the delivery right is only going to be half the battle since the Juve defence is Bigger and Stronger than the make shift defence that Barca had. The only way I can think that we are going to snatch a goal against Juve is from shooting from outside the box and hope that it either goes in or the deflection lands for Hooper who's anticipation and positioning is usually spot on in those kinds of situations

Re: UEFA Champions/Europa League 2012-13 Thread

Strangely, I think this game will be a tougher test for Celtic. I think they naturally matched up well against Barca and scoring the first goal in both games was big as it meant they could soak up pressure all game and hit them on the break. Plus they were always a huge threat with set plays since Barca are a pretty small team.

Not only are Juve much better at defending set plays, but the way they play will cause Celtic problems. For example, Juve play 3 at the back (which I love), and Celtic against Barca played with just Hooper up top on his own. Hooper will need a partner otherwise it'll be 3 on 1 at the back and he'll get snuffed out - leaving Celtic with no attacking threat. Of course, by putting an extra man up there it leaves space in the midfield and that's where Pirlo will control the game.

I expect Juve to win pretty comfortably over two legs. They won't score loads, but they'll be comfy.

My hunch

Celtics draw against Juve
Madrid beats Man U by 2 goals.

Re: UEFA Champions/Europa League 2012-13 Thread

My predictions for this week's champion league matches:

Celtic 0-2 Juventus
Valenica 2-2 PSG
Real Madrid 3-1 Man Utd
Shaktar 2-2 Dortmund

For the Real/United match, although Real Madrid form in La Liga hasn't been good I expect them to turn up for this match. I think United will score first but then I fully expect Real Madrid to turn the match around. I think Ronaldo will prove too much for the United defence.

I expect the Shaktar/Dortmund to be a great and a very entertaining match. Love watching these two teams play. I think a draw seems very likely to happen in this match.

As for the Celtic/Juve, I wouldn't be surprised if Celtic actually manage to hold on for a 0-0 draw but unlike Barca, Juve aren't one dimensional so I expect a comfortable victory for Juve.
