Choose the Champions League for each match

Barcelona vs Inter Milan

One match worth watching: Lautaro Martinez vs. Gerard Pique. Romelu Lukaku is still absent, which means the Nerazzurri will continue to use Lautaro Martinez as a central striker. Much like Inter, Barcelona also suffers from an injury error with many players out. Martinez’s duel with Pique could be the difference in this match as an experienced central defender will lead the Blaugrana’s defense. – Francesco Porzio

Most likely to score: Robert Lewandowski. All eyes are on the Polish striker after last week’s disappointing loss at the San Siro, which did not score a goal in back-to-back Champions League matches. You should go back to 2020 since the last time Lewandowski was eliminated in back-to-back group stage matches. He hasn’t gone three consecutive Champions League games without a goal since 2018. Barcelona need to score because Xavi’s team desperately need to win the match against Inter Milan. – Francesco Porzio

Choice of man of the match: Pedri. Despite the end result, he was one of the best players of the match at the San Siro. Inter Milan will not count on Marcelo Brozovic, who is still injured. His absence creates more space for Pedri. – Francesco Porzio

Match predictions: Barcelona 2, Inter Milan 0. It is unlikely that Inter will be able to replicate the same kind of performance away from the Camp Nou. Barcelona need to win this match if they want to have any chance of qualifying for the knockout stage. – Francesco Porzio

Tottenham vs Eintracht Frankfurt

One match worth watching: Jesper Lindstrom vs Ivan Perisic. The distance between Spurs’ backs and central defense was an area other teams could exploit, resulting in Conte’s 3-5-2 win with an extra midfielder as Spurs thrashed Brighton on Saturday. Against Frankfurt’s strong wings, they would be required to dominate the match in midfield. – Chuck Booth

Most likely to score: Richarlison. Champions League master for Tottenham, Richarlison already has two goals in the competition. While Harry Kane is likely to play the match if he’s half fit, it will be Richarlison who will come off the bench to secure an important victory for the winner. – Chuck Booth

Man of the Match: Pierre-Emile Hojberg. The do-it-yourself midfielder will play a huge role in containing Frankfurt during the match, turning won maneuvers into possession going forward. Because he helps with Richarlison’s winning goal, it will be enough to reclaim his man of the match honor. – Chuck Booth

Match prediction: Tottenham 1, Frankfurt 0. The change to 3-5-2 will provide much-needed calm for the match as Spurs score an important victory. – Chuck Booth
