In the upcoming Champions League 2024 Quarter Final second leg matches, Bayern Munich will face off against Arsenal while Real Madrid takes on Manchester City. Here are our predictions for these exciting matchups:

Bayern Munich vs Arsenal:

We anticipate a thrilling encounter between these two European giants. Bayern Munich’s potent attack and solid defense may give them the edge over Arsenal, but the Gunners shouldn’t be underestimated. Our prediction is a narrow victory for Bayern Munich.

Real Madrid vs Manchester City:

This clash promises to be a battle of tactics and skill. Real Madrid’s experience in the Champions League could prove crucial against Manchester City’s attacking prowess. However, City’s determination and form cannot be overlooked. Our prediction leans towards a hard-fought win for Manchester City.

Bayern Munich Vs Arsenal

On Wednesday, Arsenal will play Bayern Munich in the second leg of their enthralling quarterfinal at the Allianz Arena, the site of several Champions League defeats.

The first match last week at the Emirates was as expected. Still, Mikel Arteta’s team had to settle for an atypical draw with the defending Bundesliga champions, who played to a hard-fought tie despite not having an away end.

Bayern Munich’s possible starting lineup:

Neuer; Kimmich, Dier, De Ligt, Guerreiro; Laimer, Goretzka; Muller, Musiala, Sane; Kane

Arsenal’s possible starting lineup:

Raya; White, Saliba, Gabriel, Tomiyasu; Odegaard, Jorginho, Rice; Saka, Havertz, Martinell

Our Predictions

Bayern to win

Last week, in the first leg, Bayern manager Thomas Tuchel mainly supervised a tactical masterpiece as his team’s center-backs, midfielders, and wingers terrorized an Arsenal squad that lacked preparation for such a monumental European event.

We anticipate the Gunners to shake off their Champions League fantasies against Bayern, despite Arteta’s side often being defensive juggernauts on the road. Their lack of ruthlessness and second-half surrender against Villa was concerning.

Manchester City Vs Real Madrid

On Wednesday night, Real Madrid and Manchester City will meet again at the Etihad Stadium for the return leg of their Champions League quarterfinal after a first leg that lived up to and above expectations.

Last week, two European powerhouses played to a 3-3 draw at the Bernabeu. The winner will go to a semi-final match on Wednesday against Bayern Munich or Arsenal.

Manchester City’s possible starting lineup:

Ederson; Walker, Dias, Stones, Gvardiol; Silva, Rodri, De Bruyne; Foden, Haaland, Doku

Real Madrid possible starting lineup:

Lunin; Carvajal, Nacho, Rudiger, Mendy; Valverde, Camavinga, Kroos; Bellingham; Rodrygo, Vinicius Jr

Our Predictions

Manchester City to win

Another exciting matchup between two teams with healthy offensive lineups should be on the agenda, as City and Real have scored twenty-three goals (or an average of 4.6 goals per game) in their past five meetings.

We don’t expect a repeat of Guardiola’s charges’ four-goal thrashing from just under a year ago. Still, with the holders dominating at home (albeit without the defensive solitude to match), Man City should continue their winning streak on the continent and bring back some familiar Manchester City misery to Los Blancos.
