Champions League

GAME 1: Bayern Munch vs Celtic

After a huge win away at Anderlecht in the last Champions League gameweek, it’s all to play for in Group B. Bayern are currently second in the group on the same points as Celtic who are third due to having an inferior goal difference. Celtic have been free scoring in the SPFL this season, with Scott Sinclair the club’s top scorer with 9 goals already this campaign. Sinclair also scored in the win away to Anderlecht, and will no doubt be looking to get in on the act on Wednesday evening. Bayern will be looking to get back to winning ways in the competition after a hammering against highly fancied PSG.

Prediction: Scott Sinclair to score anytime 7/2 @ SkyBet

GAME 2: Benfica vs Manchester United

It’s top against bottom in Group A as group leaders Manchester United travel to bottom of the group Benfica. Jose Mourinho’s side have started their Champions League campaign in style this season scoring 7 goals in 2 games so far.  Benfica on the other hand have shipped a total of 6 goals in their two Champions League games so far this season. With Romelu Lukaku already on the scoresheet in the competition this year, it is likely the Belgian forward will find the net against a team who conceded 5 in their last match against FC Basel.

Prediction: Romelu Lukaku to score 2 or more goals 9/2 @ PaddyPower

GAME 3: Chelsea vs Roma

The top two teams in Group C clash at Stamford Bridge this week in what could prove to be a huge 3 points in going towards becoming the group winners. After snatching a late goal at Atletico Madrid, Chelsea are the group leaders with a two point cushion. Visitors Roma are still unbeaten after their two games in this season’s tournament after drawing with Atletico and beating Qarabag. With Alvaro Morata on the way back from fitness, he could hand the blues a major boost by being fit for Wednesday’s game. After back-to-back defeats in the Premier League, Chelsea will be looking to getting back to winning ways this Wednesday.

Prediction: 2-0 7/1 @ PaddyPower
