Tuesday's Champions League predictions including Barcelona, Liverpool, Chelsea

Sports Mole provides score predictions for all eight of Tuesday's Champions League group games, including Barcelona, Liverpool and Chelsea.

Barcelona vs. Slavia Prague (Tuesday, 5.55pm)

Barcelona will be looking to consolidate their spot at the top of Group F when they welcome Slavia Prague to Camp Nou in the Champions League on Tuesday night.

The Spanish champions have collected seven points from their three group matches to sit top of the section, while Slavia have only managed to collect a single point from their three fixtures thus far.

We say: Barcelona 3-0 Slavia Prague

Barca will be determined to return to winning ways after the disappointment of Saturday's loss at Levante, and we are expecting the Spanish champions to record a comfortable victory in front of their own supporters.

Zenit St Petersburg vs. RB Leipzig (Tuesday, 5.55pm)

RB Leipzig make the trip to Russia to take on Zenit St Petersburg in the Champions League having opened up a two-point advantage at the top of Group G.

The Bundesliga outfit ran out 2-1 victors when the two teams met at the Red Bull Arena on October 23.

We say: Zenit St Petersburg 1-2 RB Leipzig

While Zenit will begin this match as the marginal favourites, we feel that RB Leipzig have the greater momentum. With that in mind, the visitors could throw caution to the wind in order to seize full control of the group.

Chelsea vs. Ajax (Tuesday, 8pm)

Chelsea and Ajax head into Tuesday's Champions League encounter at Stamford Bridge having both earned six points from their opening three matches in Group H.

However, as a result of their narrow 1-0 success in Amsterdam last month, the Premier League outfit hold the smallest of advantages over their Dutch rivals.

We say: Chelsea 1-2 Ajax

While Chelsea have recently showed their qualities away from home, we cannot look past their below-par performances at Stamford Bridge. Although the Blues may settle for a draw here, Ajax could capitalise and gain revenge for their defeat two weeks ago.

Borussia Dortmund vs. Inter Milan (Tuesday, 8pm)

Borussia Dortmund and Inter Milan will continue their pursuit of Group F leaders Barcelona when the two teams meet in the Champions League on Tuesday night.

Both sides have collected four points from their three group fixtures thus far with identical records of one win, one draw and one defeat, although Inter are currently second due to their superior head-to-head record.

We say: Inter Milan 1-1 Borussia Dortmund

This game is really tough one to call considering the quality of both teams. A win for either would be massive, but we are struggling to separate the two sides and are therefore backing a low-scoring draw.

Liverpool vs. Genk (Tuesday, 8pm)

Champions League holders Liverpool could take a giant stride towards the knockout stages of the competition when they host Genk at Anfield on Tuesday night.

Jurgen Klopp's side sit second in Group E at the halfway stage but could end Tuesday with a six-point lead over third place heading into the final two games of the group stages.

We say: Liverpool 4-0 Genk

No Belgian team has ever avoided defeat against Liverpool at Anfield, and Genk have shown nothing this season to suggest that they could be the first. Everything points to a comfortable win for the hosts, and they could even chalk up the bonus of a first home clean sheet of the season too.

Lyon vs. Benfica (Tuesday, 8pm)

Lyon and Benfica head into their Champions League clash on Tuesday evening with both sides sitting out of the qualification places in Group G.

The Portuguese giants prevailed by a 2-1 scoreline when these two clubs met in the reverse fixture last month.

We say: Lyon 1-1 Benfica

Neither side have produced their best form on the European stage this season, and we feel that could lead to the two clubs cancelling each other out. However, with a trip to Russia to face Zenit St Petersburg up next, do not be surprised to see Lyon force the game in the latter stages if the scoreline remains level.

Napoli vs. Salzburg (Tuesday, 8pm)

Napoli welcome Red Bull Salzburg to the Stadio San Paolo on Tuesday night in the fourth round of this year's Champions League group stage.

Carlo Ancelotti's side currently top the group with seven points, with the Austrian champions back in third after recording one win and two defeats in their first three matches.

We say: Napoli 4-2 Red Bull Salzburg

Goals are almost a guarantee in this one and despite Napoli's indifferent form of late, their impressive home record and attacking quality is likely to help them secure a third win in four group games.

Valencia vs. Lille (Tuesday, 8pm)

Valencia will be looking for their second victory in this season's Champions League when they welcome French outfit Lille to the Mestalla on Tuesday night.

Los Che have collected four points from their three Group H matches to sit third in the section, while Lille are bottom having picked up just a single point from their three fixtures this term.

We say: Valencia 1-0 Lille

There is not an awful lot between the two teams, and it would not be a surprise to see another draw take place. Home advantage could be key for Valencia, though, and we are just tipping the Spanish side to triumph by the narrowest of margins.
