Michael Owen, a former England striker, has predicted today’s Champions League matches between Ajax vs Liverpool and Manchester City vs Porto.
Liverpool will face Ajax in an away Champions League group stage tie in Holland following a 2-2 draw with Everton in the Premier League last weekend.
Man City will host Porto at the Etihad Stadium after beating Arsenal 1-0 in the Premier League on Saturday.
Providing his predictions, Owen backed Liverpool to beat Ajax, while Man City will defeat Porto.
“It is a clash between two Champions League heavyweights when Ajax entertains Liverpool in Amsterdam,” Owen told BetVictor.
“This should be a cracker. Liverpool was unlucky not to snatch the points on Saturday, and although I think it’ll be close, I can see the Reds having too much firepower for the home side.”
Commenting on the Man City vs Porto clash, Owen said: “Manchester City come into this after seeing off Arsenal at the weekend.
“The Citizens have high hopes of winning their elusive first Champions League trophy and will be aiming for no less than maximum points here. Porto may have improved over the close season, but I cannot see anything other than a win for City.”
The match kick-off time for all the games is at 8 pm, Nigerian time.
