GFX FOOTBALL 4CAST MOBILE CAROUSEL

Liverpool v Porto

Jim: Jurgen Klopp's side have all but ensured their place in the Champions League quarter finals and with a trip to Old Trafford on the horizon in Saturday's early kick-off, there should be some rotation for the Reds.

There were 14 goals in Liverpool's three home group games and a high-scoring clash is on the cards again. Despite misfiring in the first leg, Porto usually score plenty, so take a chance on a 4-2 home win with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain being on target at Anfield.

Prediction: Liverpool 4-2 Porto

Scorer: Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

Oliver: This match is over as a competition after Liverpool’s 5-0 win in Portugal, but the second leg should provide plenty of fireworks as the Reds look to record another special European night.

Goals are certainly in the offing, with Anfield seeing 26 goals in the last six matches there, and even a rotated Liverpool side should get amongst the action.

It is difficult to know who will take to the field on Tuesday, but Adam Lallana looks set to start and is a good bet to put in a good performance.

Prediction: Liverpool 3-1 Porto

Scorer: Adam Lallana

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

PSG v Real Madrid

Jim: Neymar is a huge miss for the home side but they should be able to get some joy going forward against Real Madrid. Overturning the 3-1 first leg advantage is likely to be beyond the French outift, though, as Los Blancos should be able to get an away goal of their own which would likely end the tie as a contest.

It's tough to side with anyone else but Cristiano Ronaldo in this situation. 11 goals this season and 116 overall in this competition mean the Portugal international is the safest scorer option in Paris.

Prediction: PSG 2-2 Real Madrid

Scorer: Cristiano Ronaldo

Oliver: The first leg of this match was largely disappointing, with only Real Madrid’s late burst of goals pleasing the neutrals who had been promised an action-packed affair.

Neymar’s absence means PSG will turn to Mbappe and Cavani more than ever, but it is not likely to be enough to see off the holders – with an even a win not necessarily being enough for the Ligue 1 champions-elect.

Prediction: PSG 2-1 Real Madrid

Scorer: Kylian Mbappe

Tottenham v Juventus

Jim: The first leg between these teams was much more open than expected but we could see a return to the tight, low-scoring games that Juventus have been renowned for in recent years. The visitors need to nick a goal of course, but keeping Harry Kane & Co. quiet is likely to be their first objective.

Christian Eriksen scored Spurs' equaliser in Turin three weeks ago and given his quality from set pieces, the 26-year-old could be a good goal scorer alternative to Kane if players are looking to try and find a different angle.

Prediction: Tottenham 1-1 Juventus

Scorer: Christian Eriksen

Oliver: Spurs did exceptionally well in Turin and should be able to see off a Juventus side that has not won a knockout match in the Champions League after failing to win the first leg since 2006.

It certainly won’t be easy for the Londoners but they are 15 unbeaten at Wembley and a draw seems likely as Juve will have to go on the offensive.

Dele Alli is due a goal and after two against Real Madrid on this ground, he will fancy his chances of finding the net here.

Prediction: Tottenham 1-1 Juventus

Scorer: Dele Alli

Dele Alli Tottenham

Manchester City v Basel

Jim: Pep Guardiola's side flexed their attacking muscle on the European stage in Basel and should ease through with another comfortable victory against the Swiss side on Wednesday night.

Gabriel Jesus is back from injury and after a couple of cameo appearances the Brazil international could be in line for a return to the starting line-up. As a result, he's the preferred scoring option in a straightforward win for the runaway Premier League leaders at the Etihad.

Prediction: Manchester City 3-1 Basel

Scorer: Gabriel Jesus

Oliver: Much like Liverpool’s tie, this one is all-but over after City demoralised their opponents 4-0 in Switzerland last time out.

That won’t stop City getting a 21st consecutive home victory, which should see plenty of goals again.

Sergio Aguero is still after his 200th City goal but he may not be afforded the opportunity to get it here, with Gabriel Jesus likely to make his first start since New Year’s Eve after a lengthy spell on the sidelines.

Prediction: Manchester City 4-1 Basel

Scorer: Gabriel Jesus
