We expect an open game between two attacking sides. The visitors might well take advantage of the momentum as they claimed a 3-0 win over the weekend and we can see them causing some troubles here.
We still have an open clash in this one come Thursday. Both sides have got a chance to book a place in the next phase of the competition. Moreover, the contrasting statistics of both sides going into will be a thing of concern for many fans, as Spurs run at the Wembley stadium have not been that convincing all season, while Gent have done decently well in away clash in UEL.
However, this clash could produce at least 2 goals in over 90 minutes of football. But, I am not very confident of predicting Spurs to progress to the next round. They have a 60% chance of winning this match, but the round of 16 hopes may depend on the number of goals.
The visitors have to look for goals at Artemio Franchi. Fiorentina had unexpected holes at the back in home games with Genoa and Napoli conceding three in each of the matches. But we don’t doubt that Paulo Sousa will know how to keep the advantage.
Gladbach do not have the rock solid defense. Frequent attacks will leave room for Fiorentina and we don’t have any doubt of the Serie A sides’ ability to make the best out of the situation.
With the Lyon attacking prowess in the first leg, and also in recent home games (Scoring minimum of 4 goals in their last 2 home games) most pundit will be throwing their weight of support behind the Les Gones.
Therefore, I will predicting a straight win for Lyon over 90 minutes.
We see Ajax as huge favorites in this fixture and we expect them to continue their unbeaten run against Legia. They are currently on a good form, having won 4 out of their 5 recent games in all competitions. They have also kept clean sheets in the five games and we are expecting a clean sheet in this game too.
