Real Madrid, Roma Gear Up As The UEFA Champions League Returns Tonight
One of football’s most prestigious tournaments, the UEFA Champions league returns tonight!
The second leg of the round of 16 is billed for tonight as teams battle to reach the last eight.
Real Madrid will face Italian side, Roma at the Santiago Bernabeu today knowing that they’ve all but qualified for the last eight after a 2-0 away victory.
Barring Roma springing a 2-0 surprise win here, Real Madrid will move on to the next round. After shipping in 7 goals in their last match, my money is on Real Madrid to score a few goals here.
My prediction: 3-0
Wolfsburg face Gent in tonight’s other fixture coming into the game with their noses in front after a 3-2 victory away at Gent.
Wolfsburg will not be too bothered by conceding two late goals and will instead focus on keeping a calm head and avoiding complacency.
That said, Wolfsburg are favorites to qualify.
My prediction: 2-0.
