CSKA Moscow vs Roma

Wednesday night’s action begins in Russia as CSKA Moscow play host to Roma, with third playing second in Group G. Moscow will be looking to avenge the 3-0 defeat they suffered in the reverse fixture, with that result leaving them outside of the top two and in the Europa League spot. As for Roma, they will be looking to build on a run of just one defeat in eight matches after what’s been a slow start in Serie A, currently finding themselves sat ninth in the league table. Roma are favourites to take home the three points on offer in this one at 1/1 with Bet365, while CSKA are 31/10 with Betfair.

Recommended Bet: Roma win and both teams to score YES at 11/4 with Bet365 – BET HERE

Valencia vs Young Boys

Valencia will see this as a must-win game in Group H on Wednesday night when they welcome Young Boys to the Mestalla. With Manchester United travelling to Juventus, the Spanish side will know how great an opportunity this is for them, having missed out on one in the previous matchday against Young Boys, where the two sides drew 1-1. Young Boys are currently bottom of the group but know that a win here could see them rise above their opponents and leave them in pole position to secure the Europa League berth. However, Valencia are favoured here at 1/2 with Bet365, with a Young Boys victory best-priced at 13/2 with Betfred.

Bayern Munich vs AEK Athens

Bayern Munich will be looking to extend their recent run of five games unbeaten in all competitions when they host AEK Athens at the Allianz Arena. Niko Kovac has had a tough start to life in Bavaria, though now appears to be back on track and his team could seal their place in the last 16 here with a win, should Ajax beat Benfica. AEK meanwhile have lost all three of their games in the Champions League group stages so far and even a place in the Europa League looks out of their reach at this stage. It comes as no surprise that it is Bayern who are overwhelming favourites to win this contest at 1/10 with SkyBet, with an away win highly unfancied by Betfair at 45/1.

Recommended Bet: Bayern Munich to win 4-0 at 7/1 with BetVictor – BET HERE

Benfica vs Ajax

A potentially decisive game in Group E takes place at the Estadio Da Luz, as Benfica take on Ajax. The Portuguese side come into this game off the back of a run of three straight defeats in all competitions, which includes a loss away to Ajax in the reverse fixture, with another loss here potentially leaving them out of the competition altogether. Ajax have made a terrific start to their Champions League campaign, taking seven points from a possible nine having drawn away to Bayern Munich and could book their place in the last 16 with a win. Home advantage sees Benfica favoured at 6/4 with Betway, while Ajax can be backed at 21/10 with Betfair.

Recommended Bet: Draw at 12/5 with BetVictor – BET HERE

Lyon vs Hoffenheim

Lyon could all but seal their place in the knockout stages of the Champions League on Wednesday night if they can beat Hoffenheim at home. Lyon are unbeaten after three matches in the competition so far, with one win and two draws leaving them on five points, though they may regret not having more after beating Manchester City away from home. They take on a Hoffenheim side that have won each of their last three Bundesliga matches, but are yet to win a game in five attempts in the Champions League, leaving them third in the group. Lyon are currently best-priced at 21/20 with Betfair, with a Hoffenheim victory currently priced at 27/10 with Bet365.

Recommended Bet: Lyon win at 21/20 with Betfair – BET HERE

Viktoria Plzen vs Real Madrid

Finally, reigning champions Real Madrid will look to extend their lead at the top of Group G when they take on Viktoria Plzen away from home. It’s been a difficult start to the campaign for the Czech outfit, who are sat bottom of the group after collecting just a point from their first three games, which came at home to CSKA Moscow. Madrid, on the other hand, are top of the group and have won both of their last two games since Julen Lopetegui was sacked in the wake of their heavy defeat in El Clasico. Madrid are odds-on to take the three points in this one at 2/7 with Betway, with Plzen priced at 12/1 with Unibet.

Recommended Bet: Real Madrid win to nil at 6/5 with BetVictor – BET HERE
