Tips for Soccer: UEFA Champions League Last 16 Matches
Let us start with Paris Saint-Germain, the French big spenders have invested heavily this season right from appointing Carlo Ancelotti. They have a prolific striker in Zlatan Ibrahimovic who is ably supported by Ezequiel Lavezzi. David Beckham’s recent acquisition means there is quality in dead ball situations. Galatasaray on the other hand have been boosted by their latest signing of the Ivorian forward Didier Drogba who performed admirably last season for Chelsea in the UCL. Galatasaray also have prolific Dutch playmaker Wesley Sneijder in their ranks.
If you are to give safe tips for soccer about the winner of UCL 2012-13 then three teams that would come up are Manchester United, Real Madrid and Barcelona. All these teams have quality and depth in their squad. But it is a pity that only one of the teams between ManU and Real can go further as they are pitted against one another. Manchester United has been on top of BPL table for almost all season. Their forward line has formidable names such as Robin Van Persie and Wayne Rooney. Real Madrid on the other hand (as always) is a galaxy of stars. They have Christiano Ronaldo (who has been scoring goals at will), Kerim Benzema, Gonzalo Higuain, Kaka, Sami Khedira, Luka Modric and Mesut Ozil in their ranks. When both these teams clash it would be a spectacle for sure.
Barcelona on the other hand has to get over the AC Milan hurdle to progress to the next round. Again a great clash waits. Messi and his team have to get over the stubborn AC Milan defence.
