Charlie Nicholas’ Champions League and Europa League predictions

Charlie Nicholas returns along with his predictions for the British clubs becoming Europa League campaigns and also their Champions League under way.
You will find nine clubs engaged in the competitions this season, such as Liverpool, who are currently looking to defend their Champions League title.
And Soccer Saturday’s Charlie has provided his forecasts for the forthcoming fixtures…
This will be a check for the Champions League holders. We found a vulnerable side at the weekend to their defence, conceding after just seven minutes from Newcastle. They have walked away and obtained, but this is not the point.
Is unbelievable. He does not get the goals that Mohamed Salah gets the pace that Sadio Mane does however he has cunning and skill gets. He is my favorite to see, my favourite out of those three and is a team player, though he could be easier to mark than the other two.
Liverpool have not improved in midfield. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is still a fringe player. These three have to be in their game to win matches although we understand they’re a good side.
Napoli are all maybe not persuasive, although powerful in the home and all-action . Dries does the job and Mertens up stones. He has goals and that I expect him to grab another during the week.
CHARLIE PREDICTS: 2-1 (10/1 with Sky Bet)
The performances of Mason Mount are remarkable although tammy Abraham’s aims are colossal. England U21 players have scored all 11 Premier League goals so far that will be remarkable. I believed they would be at Wolves in trouble but I was incorrect. They have pace that is good and power up front. It is an way of playing for Frank Lampard.
Their boss was sacked by valencia and I do not see them being flamboyant. They’ll try to counter-attack which will allow it to be hard for Mount and Abraham to comprehend.
CHARLIE PREDICTS: 1-0 (6/1 with Sky Bet)
This is an awkward one. Tottenham were quite striking in the first half of Crystal Palace, which enabled them to ease down to second gear in the second half. They retained hold of Christian Eriksen and so things have calmed down a little. He began Palace, so is that it’s calmed down?
His team has been shifted by mauricio Pochettino and that is the reason why they seem vulnerable. This can be an awkward trip and these are harmful groups, although I would envision Tottenham would attempt to control ownership. Tottenham are unpredictable.
CHARLIE PREDICTS: 1-1 (11/2 with Sky Bet)
Manchester City found this one difficult past year. Shakhtar have brought in a bit of pedigree but that’s becoming less and less as the years progress. They are getting those names and it takes away the creative ability they were dangerous with. They are not quite sure whether they should be contesting or never.
City will be winded after the Norwich match. Aymeric Laporte is a huge miss for them. I really don’t know why Pep Guardiola chose to leave Kevin de Bruyne out at the weekend. This will be a win to find back the Premier League winners on track.
CHARLIE PREDICTS: 0-4 (12/1 with Sky Bet)
God knows what defence Unai Emery will select. I don’t know we will need to state it as Arsenal fans. They are quite great as are the youngsters, moving forward. It’s frightening how awful Arsenal are defensively, although the balance from midfield to front is not bad either.
What is the attraction to Sokratis Papastathopoulos? Kieran Tierney on Thursday and I’d play with and determine if Hector Bellerin could start too. Seeing Sunday’s match against Watford, once you visit David Luiz giving instructions with 20 minutes to go, you know that you are in trouble.
Konstantinos Mavropanos remains game time away from being healthy. If Shkodran Mustafi was brought back, it would be the end . We need to get Tierney, Bellerin and then Rob Holding back into the side. I play with these players to give them match time and let them get fit fitness and would take a bang.
Nicolas Pepe was horrible contrary to Watford. Emery shot Dani Ceballos and Mesut Ozil off was beyond me. It is starting to influence a few of the players that are young and Ainsley Maitland-Niles. Joe Willock and reiss Nelson came on and could not retain the ball.
It’s the supervisor’s duty. He must solve this and come to some conclusion on the best way to sort out this. Tierney, Bellerin, and Holding should play with I would play them this week and have a defeat when it meant they got.
CHARLIE PREDICTS: 2-2 (12/1 with Sky Bet)
Astana will come along with’park the’ bus’. Manchester United weren’t brilliant at the weekend, but it turned out to be a fabulous result – they almost stumbled however they didn’t, and it is about getting the 3 points, in what had been a dangerous match to yourselves.
It doesn’t make a big difference that Paul Pogba and Jesse Lingard were lost – . It’s not convincing with United but this is another game where they will get over the line, in comfortable manner.
CHARLIE PREDICTS: 2-0 (5/1 with Sky Bet)
Nuno Espirito Santo will want to get one over. Braga are always dangerous but do not travel well. Are caught up in the emotion of the Europa League? As Chelsea thumped them, they took their foot.
They had been blown away at weekend and it had been very unlike these to concede five and also create so many mistakes. They will have to return to basics and find a win in in the Premier League, but Nuno takes this seriously and I anticipate Wolves to become powerful here, getting off to a fine start from the group stages.
CHARLIE PREDICTS: 2-0 (6/1 with Sky Bet)
Rennes have begun in Ligue 1. I am hoping that M’Baye Niang will not play. He’s lightning fast a lesser variant of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. These guys can move and play, and that’s what Celtic fight against.
Celtic will be useful on the counter-attack, however their reputation is the same. They get scared when they travel away from your home. They do not understand whether to perform a squeezing sport or not and where to pitch their defence. They will have players that are gifted and pace out wide. Celtic won’t threaten here and still have injuries.
CHARLIE PREDICTS: 2-1 (17/2 with Sky Bet)
This is going to be a game. Feyenoord have a reputation. Feyenoord have the fire but are not currently bringing . Rangers enjoy these nights which is precisely why Steven Gerrard is there.They haven’t clicked into gear just yet however. The side of jaap Stam will sit for 20-25 minutes and frustration could be caused by this around Ibrox – that is when they can pounce.
Alfredo Morelos is the threat along with Feyenoord will be turning up him whether they could get him to see. He seems a good deal calmer than that which he’s been previously! It’s not an easy night. It will be tense and physical. If Rangers have the understanding to make it through those games 16, I don’t know.
CHARLIE PREDICTS: 1-1 (5/1 with Sky Bet)
