Barcelona v Man City (Champions League)

League Rankings: Barcelona 4th (La Liga) & Man City 1st (Premier League)

Useful facts: There’s a special sentiment to this game, with Pep Guardiola coming up against the team he played for and coached. However the odds are stacked against him as City have only won one of their five matches against the Catalans and lost the other four. Worse yet, City have had three players sent off in those games. But, based on form, the clubs are somewhat evenly matched, with City winning three of their last six and their opponents winning four in that timeframe.

Humphrey Mlwane: I’ll give it to Barcelona.

Rostov v Atletico Madrid (Champions League)

League Rankings: Rostov 6th (Russian Premier League) & Atletico Madrid 1st (La Liga)

Useful facts: With no matches previously being contested between these two teams, last season’s finalists will come into this game feeling confident, having won five of their last six games and both of their group stage matches. The Russians, however, have lost one and drawn one in this group and have won only one of their last six.

Humphrey Mlwane:Atletico Madrid.

Cape Town City v Bloemfontein Celtic (Telkom Knockout)

League Rankings: Cape Town City 6th & Bloemfontein Celtic 12th (Absa Premiership)

Useful facts: Even though Celtic had a slow start to the season, they did manage to win their last game and they’ll be encouraged by the fact that Eric Tinkler’s team have won only one of their last five. Furthermore, Celtic boast a better head-to-head record against the team formerly known as Mpumalanga Black Aces and have won six, drawn four and lost only three of their 13 encounters.

Humphrey Mlwane: Cape Town City.
