  • Napoli – Leipzig is d only big match here to me

  • I have never been familiar with most of these Europa league clubs. Strange name even make them uninteresting. To predict is always guess work because I don’t even have a hint about their strength. So I will guess here.Celtic vs Zenith is a win for Zenit with the advantage of a home 2nd leg. Arsenal vs Ostersunds is a win win match for Arsenal. Arsene Wenger will be sacked if a team like this beat them!! Marseille vs Braga is a Marseille win. Astana vs Sporting Lisbon is 50-50. AC Milan should win vs Ludogoret. Lazio should win vs Steaua Bucharest. Partizan Belgrade vs Viktoria Plzen is 50-50. Real Sociedad should win Salzburg. Lyon vs Villarreal should be an interesting match. 50-50. CSKA should take it vs Crvena Zvezda(funny name). Napoli vs Leipzig!!!! Mouthwatering 50-50. AEK Athens vs Dynamo Kiev is anyone’s guess. 50-50. Spartak Moscow vs Ath Bilbao is 50-50. Ath Madrid should take it vs Copenhagen. Nice with a certain Ghana-Italio vs Locomotives Moscow should be 50-50. Dortmund vs Atalanta Dortmund’s own to take. You see!!!? It is all guess work. What of you?
