Liverpool vs Leeds: A routine three points for the Reds
Liverpool are in good form for the upcoming meeting. The Reds have won eight games in their last eight. After their 2-0 Champions League win against Inter Milan, they picked up a comfortable 3-1 win against Norwich in the EPL. Liverpool are second in the table with 57 points, six points behind league leaders Manchester City and with a match to spare.
The Leeds side has been on a downward spiral. The team is slowly approaching the relegation zone, as they are now 15th on the table with 23 points. Watford are just five points off 18, so the Peacocks should pull themselves together. So far, they have failed to do so, with three defeats and a draw in the last four rounds. After a 0-3 defeat to Everton, Leeds lost 2-4 to Manchester United.
We think Leeds don't stand a chance against a powerful Liverpool. Not only will the Reds s be playing at Anfield, but they now have every chance of the league title due to Manchester City's defeat in the last round. We suggest not to make anything up and bet on a sure win for the home side.
- Bet: Handicap 1 (-2)
Atletico vs Manchester United: The United defense will allow at least one misfire
Atletico were in a strong group in the group stage with Liverpool, Porto, and Milan. They didn't do particularly well, but they finished second with seven points thanks to a 3-1 win over the Portuguese club in the final round. However, in La Liga, Atletico are only fifth in the table with 42 points.
Manchester United's group of sides was far more "passing" - Villarreal, Atalanta, and Young Boys. As expected, the United finished first, scoring 11 points. Manchester United are fourth in the English league table, with 46 points.
In this meeting, we would suggest playing Atletico. The Madrid side knows that they have the best chance of success at the Wanda Metropolitano, and it will be hard to come back to Old Trafford. We need a result here and now. The visitors' defense frequently misfires, so it would be logical to bet on the home team's goals.

Benfica vs Ajax: We expect an upper hand
Benfica were initially predicted to have a battle for third place with the Ukrainian club in a group with Bayern, Barcelona, and Dynamo Kyiv. However, the Portuguese side has been able to take advantage of the poor form of the Spanish team and beat them to second place with eight points. Benfica are third in the Portuguese league table, with 51 points.
Ajax have been a stellar performer in the group stage. The Dutch club became the best in a group with Sporting, Borussia Dortmund, and Besiktas. Moreover, they managed to pick up six wins in six games and 18 points! In the Dutch league, Ajax are in first place with 57 points.
Without a doubt, Ajax are great. But the Benfica players know that their chances in Amsterdam will be minimal. But, with the support of the home stands, they can try to stop a powerful Ajax, but they need to go on the attack. The meetings between these opponents are predominantly head-to-head, so we expect at least three goals here as well.
