🗓️ Tuesday, March 15
Manchester United vs Atletico Madrid (agg. 1-1)
Michael Owen’s score prediction: 1-0
“That was a great result for Manchester away in Madrid. We all know how patchy they’ve been domestically, but I think Europe comes as a welcome distraction.
“This isn’t the Atletico of old when they had, arguably, the best defense in Europe, so I think United can get a result here”
Ajax vs Benfica (agg. 2-2)
Michael Owen’s score prediction: 3-1
“These two played out a very entertaining first leg, and I think this will be just as open. It’s never been easy to get a result in Amsterdam, and with the home crowd behind them, I think the Dutch side will get through here.
“They are absolutely flying domestically, so if they can find that sort of form, I think they’ll have too much”
🗓️ Wednesday, March 16
Lille vs Chelsea (agg. 0-2)
Michael Owen’s score prediction: 0-1
“Chelsea are in the driving seat ahead of this one.
“These types of matches are Thomas Tuchel’s bread and butter. Sit in, give nothing away, and when it comes to the point where Lille must throw everything forward, it’d be just typical that Chelsea nick one.”

Juventus vs Villarreal (agg. 1-1)
Michael Owen’s score prediction: 2-1
“All square from the first leg in Spain, I can see another tight match here.
“Villarreal are becoming quite assured in Europe, as they’ve been on the scene for long enough now. However, Turin is never easy, and I can see the home side just edging through here”
