Can you beat the Predictor Tipster on matchday nine?

Read the Tipster's predictions ahead of the quarter-final first legs.

Paris Saint-Germain FC 1-2 FC Barcelona
It is a long time since the Parc des Princes staged such a momentous fixture, but PSG will go into it without their top-scoring talisman Zlatan Ibrahimović, who is suspended. The Sweden striker should return to face his old club in the second leg but by then it could be too late as Barça seek to sustain the momentum of their revitalising round of 16 comeback against AC Milan.

FC Bayern München 1-0 Juventus
Bayern and Juve have demonstrated cup-winning credentials en route to the quarter-finals, and with the two clubs poised to claim record-extending domestic league titles, it's a tough tie to call. It will be closely contested, and there is likely to be no more than one goal in it after the first 90 minutes. For me, home advantage will just shade it for the Bundesliga champions-elect.

Málaga CF 1-1 Borussia Dortmund
Málaga's UEFA Champions League debut has been a remarkable success story but Dortmund, having won a tough group and brushed off the dangerous FC Shakhtar Donetsk all without losing a game, are widely expected to eliminate them. The Spanish outfit tend to win at home without conceding, but an away goal for Jürgen Klopp's side should put them in control.

Real Madrid CF 3-1 Galatasaray AŞ
A third successive semi-final awaits José Mourinho's Madrid. Galatasaray should be doughtier quarter-final opponents than Tottenham Hotspur FC and APOEL FC, comprehensively demolished at the same stage of the past two seasons. Yet it would be a surprise if Fatih Terim's side were to come away from the Santiago Bernabéu with anything better than a two-goal defeat.
