Champions League: Michael Owen predicts Man City vs Atletico Madrid, Benfica vs Liverpool

Former Manchester United striker, Michael Owen, has predicted tonight’s UEFA Champions League fixtures.

Manchester City will host Atletico Madrid in the Champions League quarter-final first leg fixture at the Etihad Stadium.

Liverpool will face Benfica in an away Champions League last-eight first leg tie.

Providing his predictions, Owen was quoted by BetVictor as saying: “This should be a good tie for Liverpool. Benfica are a decent side, and that was a brilliant result for them in the last round, knocking out Ajax.

“I don’t think it will be quite that much, I am going for a 3-1 win [for Liverpool].”

Commenting on the Manchester City vs Atletico Madrid match, Owen said: “I’m looking forward to this one, talk about a clash of styles! City are obviously desperate to win this competition and all things considered, this should be a decent draw for them.

“We all know what we will see from Atletico, and they will try and stay in this game for as long as possible. I don’t think we will see a classic at the Etihad that’s for sure, but City should have too much for them. I am going for 2-0 [for Man City].”
