Tuesday's Champions League predictions including Atletico vs. Bayern Munich

Sports Mole provides score predictions for all of Tuesday's Champions League fixtures, including Atletico Madrid vs. Bayern Munich.

Two teams looking to secure their first victory of the 2020-21 Champions League group stage at the fifth attempt will lock horns on Tuesday evening as Lokomotiv Moscow play host to Red Bull Salzburg in Group A.

This week's hosts have registered three draws and a solitary defeat so far, whereas Salzburg are rooted to the bottom of the group with only one point taken from a possible 12.

We say: Lokomotiv Moscow 1-2 Red Bull Salzburg

Neither of these two teams have gone down without a fight in the group stage, and both Lokomotiv and Salzburg are sure to be going all out to register a maiden victory in the 2020-21 Champions League with a slim possibility of a second-placed finish still on the cards. This is set to be a very close game, but we think that Salzburg's youthful attack will produce the goods and propel the visitors to a narrow win on Tuesday.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

Shakhtar vs. Real Madrid (Tuesday, 5.55pm)

Real Madrid will be aiming to book their spot in the last-16 stage of the Champions League when they travel to Ukraine on Tuesday night to take on Shakhtar Donetsk.

Zinedine Zidane's side are currently second in Group B, three points clear of third-placed Shakhtar, meaning that a victory in this game would see them advance to the knockout round of the competition.

We say: Shakhtar Donetsk 1-2 Real Madrid

Madrid will be determined to bounce back from Saturday's loss to Alaves, and the Spanish champions will also be hoping to gain some revenge on Shakhtar. There is no question that the home side are capable of making it a tricky contest, but we fancy Zidane's side to pick up all three points.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 2.5 goals.

Atletico vs. Bayern (Tuesday, 8.00pm)

Atletico Madrid will be looking to gain revenge on Bayern Munich when the two teams lock horns at the Wanda Metropolitano in the Champions League on Tuesday night.

Bayern recorded a 4-0 victory when the pair locked horns in Munich, and the reigning champions have already booked their spot in the round of 16 with two games to spare. Atletico are second in Group A, meanwhile, but still have work to do if they are to progress to the knockout stage of the competition.

We say: Atletico Madrid 1-1 Bayern Munich

Bayern are currently on an incredible winning run in the Champions League, but we fancy Atletico to hold the German giants on Tuesday. The fact that Bayern are already through to the next round could take the edge off their performance, and Simeone's side certainly have enough quality to secure a point.

Our tipster partners are predicting a double chance bet on a home win or an away win.

Borussia M'bach vs. Inter Milan (Tuesday, 8.00pm)

Borussia Monchengladbach host Inter Milan in Group B of the Champions League on Tuesday with the visitors requiring a win if they are to remain in the competition.

The two sides drew 2-2 at San Siro in the opening round of fixtures in the competition.

We say: Borussia Monchengladbach 2-2 Inter Milan

With Inter knowing they have to win to remain in the competition, it should make for an entertaining game between two sides who have plenty of goals in their ranks.

We can see Gladbach getting the result they need to take them through (providing Shakhtar do not beat Real in the other match in the group).

Our tipster partners are predicting a double chance bet on a home win or an away win.

Porto vs. Man City (Tuesday, 8.00pm)

Manchester City will endeavour to secure top spot in Champions League Group C when they travel to the Estadio do Dragao to take on Porto in Tuesday's encounter.

While the visitors have already qualified for the knockout stages, Porto must hope that Olympiacos fail to beat Marseille for their route into the next round to be confirmed this week.

We say: Porto 1-2 Manchester City

This is sure to be Man City's toughest game of the group stage so far, with Porto boasting a solid defensive record in recent matches and looking to assure themselves of a place in the last 16. Guardiola is expected to rotate heavily and the hosts will certainly fancy their chances, but we still think that City will have enough firepower to get over the line.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

Marseille vs. Olympiacos (Tuesday, 8.00pm)

Marseille will be hoping to make their Champions League venture count for something when they play host to Greek giants Olympiacos at the Orange Velodrome on Tuesday evening.

Les Olympiens are winless and goalless in the group stage so far, while Olympiacos are only three points better off than their midweek opponents and are all but guaranteed to finish outside the top two.

We say: Marseille 1-1 Olympiacos

Both Marseille and Olympiacos will be fully aware that this match represents their best chance to register a victory in Europe before they bid their goodbyes to the Champions League for at least another year. Neither team are looking confident in front of goal, but we think that Marseille will finally break their scoring duck and play out a draw with Greek giants on Tuesday evening.

Our tipster partners are predicting a double chance bet on a home win or draw.

Liverpool vs. Ajax (Tuesday, 8.00pm)

Just two points separate the top three teams in Champions League Group D heading into matchday five, when Liverpool welcome fellow European royals Ajax to Anfield.

A shock home defeat to Atalanta BC on matchday four saw Liverpool miss the chance to book their place in the last 16 and blow Group D wide open in the process, but Jurgen Klopp's side still only need one more win from their final two games to progress.

We say: Liverpool 2-1 Ajax

If Liverpool play anything like they did against Atalanta then Ajax could easily win this match and Klopp's side could suddenly find themselves third in the group heading into the final matchday.

Just one more win is needed for the hosts, though, and they will want to get that wrapped up as soon as possible. Ajax's free-scoring attack will cause problems for a patched-up defence, but we are backing the six-time winners to get the job done on Tuesday night.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 2.5 goals.

Atalanta vs. Midtjylland (Tuesday, 8.00pm)

A famous win on the hallowed ground of Anfield got Atalanta BC's Champions League Group D campaign back on track last week, but the Italian side must follow that up at home against eliminated Midtjylland if they are to progress to the last 16.

While Gian Piero Gasperini's men downed a shadow Liverpool side to stay in qualification contention, Tuesday's Danish opponents bowed out after yet another group stage defeat in Amsterdam.

We say: Atalanta BC 2-1 FC Midtjylland

Though previously irrepressible Atalanta have faltered of late, the Bergamaschi are more than capable of lifting their weary legs sufficiently to see off the modest challenge of Midtjylland on Tuesday.

It has been a punishing introduction to life at the elite level for the Danish champions and there is only the slightest sliver of hope that they can break their pointless run this week.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 2.5 goals.
