What better way to predict the upcoming Champions League games than CPU vs. CPU simulations run through EA Sports FIFA 13.
There were certainly a few pitfalls in the process, like one team not even being in the original FIFA setup, but it was fun to watch.
Shakhtar Donetsk is the team in question, but with the help of a well set up user-created side they made an appearance.
That meant that the game's MatchDay feature, which adjusts form of players and teams based on their real-life performances, couldn't come into play.
That along with the fact that some teams weren't in their actual stadiums were factors that diluted the authenticity somewhat.
Still, just like predictions in normal articles, these simulations took into consideration suspensions and injuries.
That meant that even though the players' individual form weren't affected, the team was as close to a real-life team as possible.
So here are your predictions for this first week of the 2013 Champions League knockout rounds brought to you by EA Sports FIFA 13.
