After having done the previews and predictions of Groups A and B, today we take a look at Groups C and D and predict which teams will eventually go through.
Benfica is a Portugese sports club based in Lisbon, Portugal. It has been one of the top clubs in Portugese Liga from quite some time. Benfica has won Champions league twice in 1961 and 1962 and has been a regular face at the Champions League. They were runners up in last year’s Uefa Europa League losing out to Chelsea in the final. With players like Maxi Perera and Artur this team has a long way to go.
Paris Saint Germain F.C.
PSG currently the defending champions of France have made a lot of good signings in the last year or so with the introduction of players like Ibrahimovic, Edinson Cavani , Thiago Silva, Alex this team has a lot to go in the competition. Last year they were knocked out by Barcelona at the quarter-final stage that too on away goals. With Cavani probably the best striker in Europe PSG has a lot to win in the coming future.
Olympiacos is one of the top clubs in Greece. They have been the defending champions from the last three years showing their complete dominance in Greece with two back to back Greek cups in 2012 and 2013. This team has not been up to mark in Uefa Champions League but u never know what they can bring in this year’s competition.
Anderlecht is a Belgium professional football club who has been in top flight and has been qualifying for Uefa Champions League from a long time. Currently it is at fourth position in the Belgium League and seem to be a weak link in the Uefa Champions League.
The 2 probable teams to qualify from the group are of course the kings of France Paris Saint Germain and the team from Portugal SL Benfica
The defending Champions has been in top flight for the last few seasons and this time it’s going to be the best. The assigning of the new coach and that to a genius Pep Guardiola and with new signings of players like Mario Gotze and Thiago Alcantara no other club seems to be stopping them. They look like one of the prime contenders for this year’s Uefa Champions League.
CSKA Moscow is a Russian club who has come into picture since drawing with Real Madrid at home and has been a regular member at this prestigious tournament. They may have something which can alter things in the round of 16.
Manchester City F.C.
The blue army has been promising in the EPL but are showing lack of experience when it comes to Uefa Champions League as from the last two seasons they are not able to reach even the round of 16. With the sacking of Roberto Mancini and the arrival of Manuel Pelligirini there might be something new for the men in blue but with no Tevez it looks like the same old story.
FC Victoria Plzen
Victoria Plzen is a professional football club in Czech Republic and are winning the Czech Liga for past two seasons. They have been qualifying for the Champions League for the past three seasons which makes them a good competitor but with high profile teams their exit at the group stage looks a bit prominent.
The 2 probable teams to qualify from the group are of course the German Giants Bayern Munich and the English Lions Manchester City.
