UEFA Europa League – Round of 16 Preview

uefacup2 UEFA Europa League   Round of 16 Preview

The Round of 32 produced a few dramatic results including a thrilling two-leg sweep of Roma by Panathinaikos. The Greek club won both legs by identical 3-2 scores and should be full of confidence for their matches against Standard Liège.

A quick look ahead to the Round of 16. Depsite their domestic foibles, I do expect Liverpool’s overall depth to show against Lille. Lille have performed well this season and I think they will keep the tie close but ultimately the Reds will move on.

A potential upset in the making sees Fulham take on Italian giants Juventus. Juve have struggled for form this season and I look for master tactician Roy Hodgson to engineer a win.

PREDICTIONS:
Hamburger SV v RSC Anderlecht
FC Rubin Kazan v VfL Wolfsburg
Club Atlético de Madrid v Sporting Clube de Portugal
SL Benfica v Olympique de Marseille
Panathinaikos FC v Royal Standard de Liège
LOSC Lille Métropole v Liverpool FC
Juventus v Fulham FC
Valencia CF v Werder Bremen

  1. Torres should has gained back his sense of goal after scored 2 on Monday night. He will keep scores tonight and brings Liverpool to Europe League quarter final.

    Visitor Lilie are a tough team and greatly perform in this season. However, they are still a level lower compare to Liverpool. In a must win critical situation, I am backing the Reds to win in style.
