A TikTok user known as @lavezzi1893 has been predicting the results of the UEFA Champions League knockout stages by cracking eggs together. So far, he has been incredibly accurate, correctly predicting all four quarter-final results and the two semi-final matches.
In the quarter-finals, he predicted that Real Madrid would beat Chelsea, Manchester City would beat Bayern Munich, AC Milan would beat Napoli, and Inter Milan would beat Benfica. All four of those predictions came true.
In the semi-finals, he predicted that Real Madrid would beat Manchester City and AC Milan would beat Inter Milan. The first leg of those matches has already been played, and both predictions are looking good. Real Madrid won 3-1 at home to Manchester City, and AC Milan won 2-1 at home to Inter Milan.
If @lavezzi1893’s predictions are correct, then the Champions League final will be between Real Madrid and AC Milan. That would be a repeat of the 2003 final, which Real Madrid won 2-1.
It is important to note that @lavezzi1893’s predictions are based on nothing more than the cracking of eggs. There is no scientific basis for his predictions, and they should not be taken too seriously. However, it is still interesting to see how accurate he has been so far.
Here is a table of @lavezzi1893’s predictions and the actual results:
Prediction Actual Result
- Real Madrid vs Chelsea— Real Madrid win
- Manchester City vs Bayern Munich— Manchester City win
- AC Milan vs Napoli —AC Milan win
- Inter Milan vs Benfica— Inter Milan win
- Real Madrid vs Manchester City —Real Madrid win (first leg) But It was Draw
- AC Milan vs Inter Milan — AC Milan win (first leg) But Inter won the Match,
Most people are tipping Manchester City to finally go all the way and win the Champions League this season, though a soothsaying TikTok star says their campaign is going to end in tears – and has the evidence to prove it!
A football fan, known as @lavezzi1893, has been predicting knockout results with egg-extraordinary accuracy by smashing egg shells together, and according to his crackpot theory, City will lose to Inter Milan in the final.
He tipped Pep Guardiola’s side to meet Inter in the final, which after the two first legs looks a reasonably safe bet, but City fans will be gutted to learn the Inter egg ended up winning the entire thing.
Will the pred-egg-to come true? Let us know what you think in the comments section below.
At the end of the day, it’s just a bit of fun, but City fans will find the culinary prophecy hard to egg-more considering the success of trailblazing footy psychics like Paul the Octopus, who correctly predicted Spain’s road to glory at the 2010 World Cup, and the group of mystic meerkats who did the same for England Women’s European Championship triumph last year, among others.
A 1-1 draw at the Bernabeu means City just have to beat Carlo Ancelotti’s side on home soil to reach the final, and considering they haven’t lost there in the Champions League since 2018, Erling Haaland and Co. must fancy their chances.
But Madrid’s remarkable bouncebackability in the competition shouldn’t be sniffed at, particularly given what happened when the two sides met at the same stage last season. All in all, next week’s second leg should be egg-citing!
