Insights Into The Champions League

The group stage of the Champions League is almost over, which means a lot of the biggest clubs in Europe are scrambling to earn a berth in the knockout stage, so there is plenty to play for this week. These are some of the big matches taking place this week in the Groups.

Tuesday, November 25.

Apoel Nicosia vs. Barcelona

This game is important to Barcelona, because they lost to PSG in their first game, which is why they are in second place in Group F right now, a win against Apoel Nicosia will give them 12 points, heading into their final game with PSG, and a big Win at Camp Nou will help them secure first place in the group, which will give them a favorable matchup in the next round.

Game Line: Barcelona is the heavy favorite in the game; the money line is -380.

Personal Pick: Barcelona will win big on the road.

Paris St.-Germain vs. Ajax Amsterdam

This is also a big game for PSG, because they could only manage a draw against Ajax the first time they played each other. If they play to a draw again, Barcelona will overtake them in the standings, and will only need a tie in the final game of group play to win Group F, so PSG can't afford anything less than a win in this game, to make their chances of winning the group easier. Ajax has lost their last two games in the group, and will be trying to end their campaign on a good note, so they will be a very dangerous team.

Game Line: Paris St.-Germain is the favorite in this game; the money line is -319.

Personal Pick: PSG will come away with the victory, setting up a showdown for the group with Barcelona.

Wednesday, November 26.

Arsenal vs. Borussia Dortmund

Arsenal cost themselves a chance to lead the group with a 2-0 loss on the road against Dortmund, in earlier group play. They still have a slim chance of winning the group, but they will need to start by getting a victory at home over Dortmund, who have been perfect in group play so far, and hope that Dortmund also loses to Anderlecht in their final group game. Defeating Dortmund won't be an easy task, but Arsenal hasn't lost a home game during group play.

Game Line: Arsenal is favored to win the game; the money line is +150.

Personal Pick: Arsenal will win a close one at home.

Bayern Leverkusen vs. Monaco

This game is more important for Monaco, because a loss, and a win by either Zenit St. Petersburg or Benefica, will leave them in second place, heading into their final game against Zenit, so they need at least a draw in this game, to ensure they are still in second place when all the games have been played. They won the first game between these two teams at home 1-0, so Leverkusen will be trying to return the favor in their own house on Wednesday, making it an exciting matchup.

Game Line: Bayern Leverkusen is favored to win this game; the money line is -154.

Personal Pick: Monaco will win the match, and give themselves some breathing room, heading into their final group game.
