Napoli vs Liverpool

Liverpool host Napoli knowing that only a win will do if they are to progress to the Champions League knockout stages – and even that may not be enough.

If Paris Saint-Germain fail to beat Red Star Belgrade then any win will do but Jurgen Klopp’s side will need a 1-0 victory or a win by two or more goals in order to go through if PSG are to win in Serbia, as many expect the Ligue 1 leaders to do.

Liverpool lost in Naples and the Napoli players have stoked the fires ahead of this match by mocking Liverpool’s ‘This is Anfield’ sign in the tunnel. Follow the live action below:

Inter vs PSV

However, a late goal by Christian Eriksen gave Spurs a needed win and a leg up on the Nerazzurri heading into the final group round.

The path to the knockout stage is now much more complicated for Inter. They have to beat PSV Eindhoven Tuesday and hope Barcelona knock off Tottenham at Camp Nou in order to advance. The Nerazzurri will be seeking their fourth straight Champions League win over PSV.

Inter Milan news

The bad news … Matias Vecino is likely out of the match with PSV due to his nagging thigh injury.

The good news … Radja Nainggolan is likely back after suffering his injury against Tottenham earlier in the campaign. This is big because Nainggolan helped pace the Nerazzurri against PSV in their first meeting of the Champions League.

With Sime Vrsaljko also healthy, it means that Luciano Spalletti will be able to field one of his strongest line-ups.

Wild cards here will be the sluggish Ivan Perisic who has yet to really get on track this season on the wing and Danilo D’Ambrosio who has shown flashes, but nothing of consistency.

Matteo Politano should be strong on the right side while Borja Valero could have a chance to be extremely solid at center midfield.

Inter’s defense remains one of the best in Serie A — which, despite the loss, was enforced at Juventus as the Nerazzurri held the Old Lady to just one late goal in Turin.

Mauro Icardi will have to bring the “A” game to the Meazza Tuesday and be on target despite the leaky Eindhoven defense.

Projected lineup: Handanovic; Vrsaljko, De Virj, Skriniar, D’Ambrosio; Valero, Brozovic; Politano, Nainggolan, Perisic; Icardi.

Champions League Group B

PSV Eindhoven news

The Eredivisie champions suffered their first setback in the league, but bounced back with a big 6-0 win over Excelsior to stay atop to the league standings.

Now, PSV is out of the Champions League and won’t be dropping to the Europa League after finishing last in Group B, but they do have the opportunity to play spoiler for Inter who need to win and get help from Group champions Barcelona to advance.

Captain and striker Luuk de Jong will need to be a focus for Inter’s defense as it will be his job to motivate PSV to close out their European campaign on a high.

He will only be able to accomplish this if wingers Steven Bergwijn and Hirving Lozano are both on their game. If Inter can close out space between the wingers and de Jong, it will be increasingly difficult for them to find the back of the net.

Not to mention a hostile crowd at the Meazza who will be hoping for continued European glory for the Nerazzurri.

Defensively, PSV is solid and have midfielder Jorrit Hendrix to provide some defensive help. However, it will be difficult for Eindhoven to compete with the physicality of Nainggolan and the speed of Perisic and Politano.

Projected lineup: Zoet; Dumfries, Schwaab, Viergever, Angelino; Rosario, Hendrix; Bergwijn, Pereiro, Lozano; de Jong.

Tottenham vs Barcelona

If Tottenham are to qualify for the Champions League last 16 then their task tonight is to beat Barcelona at the Camp Nou or hope that Inter Milan don’t pick up more points than them in their home clash against PSV Eindhoven.

The chances of Spurs winning in Barcelona are slim given that they were beaten 4-2 at Wembley in the corresponding fixture in October. In addition, few English clubs taste success at the Camp Nou, with Liverpool the last to do so in 2007.

One glimmer of hope for Mauricio Pochettino’s players is that Barcelona have already qualified as winners of group B so there is less incentive for them to go flat out against their visitors.

“The idea was to come to Barcelona already qualified [and] we deserved better results in Milan and Holland,” said the Spurs manager. “If we want to deserve qualification we have to win.”

Keeping an eye on Inter

Asked if he will be following events from Milan and relaying the news to his players, Pochettino said: “We are going to know what’s going on. It’s important to know what’s going on but focus on what we have to do.”

Barca are up for it

Barcelona have omitted Luis Suarez from their matchday squad because of a knee twinge. The Spanish press claims that coach Ernesto Valverde has hinted that Lionel Messi may also sit out the match as he looks to give some of his front-line players a rest. But he dismissed suggestions that he is taking the tie lightly.

“Inter has nothing to fear,” said Valverde. “We respect Inter and Spurs but we have done our main job. We like this competition and we will go out with the idea of winning, which is what we always do.” Group B permutations

Uefa.com explains what can happen on matchday six in group B.

    Tonight’s fixtures: Barcelona vs. Tottenham; Inter Milan vs. PSV  Qualified teams: Barcelona are group winners  Who can still qualify in second: Spurs and Inter Milan  Spurs are second on head-to-head away goals so will go through if they win in Barcelona, or at least if Inter do not pick up more points than them Inter will finish second if they pick up more points than Spurs

Team news and possible starting XIs Barcelona team news

As stated former Liverpool striker Luis Suarez won’t play against Spurs while Lionel Messi could start from the bench. Brazil midfielder Arthur Melo is in contention to play but Malcom, Samuel Umtiti, Sergio Roberto and Rafinha are on the injury list.

Tottenham team news

Spurs are without injured full-backs Kieran Trippier and Serge Aurier. The BBC reports that Kyle Walker-Peters could start for the first time in a European tie.

Juan Foyth is not available for the Champions League but Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen will start after being rested for last Saturday’s trip to Leicester. Erik Lamela is also fit to play after recovering from a thigh injury.

“We are going to be ready to compete in our best condition,” promised Pochettino. “We need to think like this if we are going to do something important.”

Possible starting XIs

How the two teams could line up tonight at the Camp Nou, according to talkSPORT.

    Barcelona possible starting XI: Cillessen, Semedo, Vermaelen, Lenglet, Miranda, Oriol Busquets, Alena, Arthur, Coutinho, Messi, Dembele  Tottenham possible starting XI: Lloris, Walker-Peters, Vertonghen, Alderweireld, Rose, Dier, Winks, Eriksen, Alli, Son, Kane

Barcelona vs Tottenham

Barcelona host Tottenham in the final round of group stage matches with the La Liga leaders having already ensured they will finish on top of Champions League Group B – but while Barca can relax, Spurs cannot and are likely to need all three points if they are to avoid elimination.

Tottenham are level with Inter on seven points each, and Spurs know that if Inter – who face group stragglers PSV in Milan tonight – better their result, they will be heading to the Europa League.

Mauricio Pochettino knows how crucial this game is and used Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen only from the bench in Saturday’s win over Leicester to keep them fresh for the tie. Spurs will hope stars like Lionel Messi will not start for what is an inconsequential tie for Barca. Follow the live action below:

Barcelona vs Tottenham Hotspur

Barcelona vs Tottenham Hotspur: 3 reasons why Spurs could win | UEFA Champions League 2018-19.It’s Champions League week, and the big games are underway! The Catalans take on Tottenham Hotspur tonight at the Camp Nou. Spurs were beaten 2-4 by Barcelona when they last met at Wembley, as it was once again a Leo Messi show, and a screamer by Rakitic sealed the win.

CLICK HERE TO WATCH NOW

However, if Spurs are on the losing end today, they will have to bid goodbye to their Champions League hopes, following the path of their North London rivals Arsenal.

Tottenham Hotspur registered a win last weekend against Leicester City away from home, despite resting their star players – Harry Kane and Eriksen. Dele Alli played some minutes out on the pitch, and scored a goal too. It was a great performance overall from the North London side, and they look in good form to face the mighty Barcelona.

Barcelona sits top in Group B with 13 points to their name, nearly 6 more than Tottenham and Inter Milan. Spurs and Inter Milan share the same goal difference of -1, and if Inter Milan bags a win against PSV, it will be a do or die game for Tottenham.

Tottenham must win the game with a great scoreline, as it is likely Inter Milan will win against PSV. So, if the Spurs plan on moving ahead in the UCL, they must have a better goal difference than Inter Milan.

After the defeat to Arsenal at the Emirates, Tottenham was in a bad mood. The internet went nuts over the game, with The Gunners celebrating the win! However, Tottenham have regained 3rd spot, with Arsenal back on 5th.

Tottenham since the defeat have managed two wins in a row, and their game against Chelsea tells us what they can do when it’s their day. Pochettino relied on his pacy wingers to get in behind the likes of David Luiz and Rudiger, considering the fact that Alonso is mostly caught up high on the pitch. A 3-1 win against The Blues is something they’ll cherish forever.

My point is, Poch must stick to his tactics – playing wide and relying on Son and Lucas Moura to get in behind Pique and Lenglet who play a very high line.

It’s not impossible to defeat Barcelona at the Camp Nou. If Real Betis could do it, considering Spurs’ form, why can’t they?

Red Star Belgrade vs Paris Saint Germain

Red Star Belgrade vs Paris Saint-Germain Betting Tips: Latest odds, team news, preview and predictions.The Serbian champions have been surprisingly strong at home and there could be value in backing them to get on the scoresheet against PSG.

CLICK HERE TO WATCH NOW

Group C has been one of the most competitive in this season’s Champions League and going into the final round of matches it is Paris Saint-Germain who are in seemingly in the best position to qualify.

The French champions will make it through to the last 16 if they beat Red Star in Belgrade, although they would also progress if Liverpool fail to beat Napoli.

Red Star for their part have perhaps taken more points in this group than many people thought they would and while they cannot make the last 16 they could still finish third with a win and qualify for the Europa League.

Latest odds

PSG enjoyed a 6-1 win over the Serbian champions when they met in Paris earlier in the competition and William Hill price another win for Thomas Tuchel’s side at 1/6 (1.17).

The hosts, who completed a famous win over Liverpool in their last European home match, are offered at 16/1 (17.00) with the draw available at 6/1 (7.00).

Team news

PSG’s Ligue 1 fixture against Montpellier was postponed at the weekend, with their last game being a 1-1 draw against Strasbourg last Wednesday. Neymar missed that match with an adductor problem although he could return here.

Midfielder Nenad Krsticic has played every game for Red Star in the Champions League this term, but is suspended for Tuesday’s encounter.

Preview

PSG are the second highest scoring side in this season’s Champions League but are yet to keep a clean sheet, and that fact perhaps underlines the doubts that exist over the French champions.

Red Star’s four points in the tournament have all been picked up at home, with a creditable 0-0 draw against Napoli followed up by a 2-0 win over Liverpool.

The atmosphere at the Rajko Mitic stadium will be raucous and while the home fans will not be expecting their side to record a win, they could be capable of scoring at least a goal.

Tips and predictions

PSG have kept just two clean sheets in their last 12 away games in the Champions League and while they have faced a lot of quality opposition during that time, they have also conceded away to the likes of Basel and Ludogorets.

Monday Night Football

Monday Night Football: Washington Redskins @ Philadelphia Eagles Live Thread & Game Information.Seattle Seahawks Vs. Minnesota Vikings: Monday Night Football Week 14 Schedule, Odds And Picks.

CLICK HERE TO WATCH NOW

The Minnesota Vikings still hold on to that sixth seed after the games that took place on Sunday (thankfully), but did fall two games back in the division after Chicago’s win against the Rams. Now the Vikings need to thank the football gods by putting a whooping on the Seattle Seahawks on Monday night and secure a win.

A win in Seattle isn’t going to come easy and hopefully the Vikings make it a good matchup, especially for primetime. I broke down a few things to watch for this week:

Vikings rush defense vs. Seahawks run game

Seattle’s run game has been the most efficient in the league going into week 14, according to Pro Football Reference in terms of rushing yards and attempts. The Seahawks have quite the committee in the backfield with Chris Carson, Rashaad Penny and Mike Davis.

Carson is no doubt the lead workhorse with 157 carries for 704 yards and four touchdowns. Davis and Penny have a combined 163 totes for 765 yards and five touchdowns. Seattle has only rushed for less than 150 yards in only four games this season.

With that being said, the Vikings’ rush defense should be pretty busy Monday night. The defense has averaged 99 yards a game this season and ranks 7th in league for rushing yards allowed. However, over the last three games the average has been 130 rush yards a game.

Sheldon Richardson’s return to Seattle

The last time Richardson faced Seattle in a regular season game was back in 2016 when he was with the New York Jets, he only recorded two tackles. He did spend last year as a Seahawk before making his way over to Minnesota.

Last season in 15 games he recorded 44 total tackles, two fumble recoveries, one sack and an interception. While with the Vikings, he’s racked up 41 total tackles and 3.5 sacks. He’s managed to hit the quarterback 14 times this season compared to only seven last year.

Richardson isn’t on pace for a career-high season, but he’s on pace to have a better season than last year. He’s been a significant piece for Minnesota’s defensive front. Two weeks ago he had his best game of the season finishing the day with seven total tackles and two sacks against the Green Bay Packers. He finished last week with only three tackles against the New England Patriots.

A well-balanced Vikings offense

There’s been a lot of heat thrown onto John DeFilippo about running the ball. He’s said he knows he should have ran the ball more last week. The pressure for a more balanced performance from the offense is high and I think Monday night will be the night fans will finally see a night where Dalvin Cook carries the ball more than 15 times.

Cook’s only been in one game where he’s carried the ball more than 15 times and that happened in week one when he carried the ball 16 times against the San Francisco 49ers. Other than that he’s only carried the ball 29 times over the past three weeks.

Here’s a weird nugget I dug up that stood out. Whenever the Vikings lost (and tied considering the Packer game), Cousins had thrown the ball more than 40 times. The Vikings won whenever Cousins threw the ball 40 times or less. Regardless of the outcome, I’ll be looking at that stat.
