Bayern Munich vs Benfica

Bayern Munich can seal their place in the knockout stages of the Champions League with a victory over Benfica on Tuesday evening. The Allianz Arena will play host as Bayern look to add to the 10 points they have already won in the group so far and have already defeated Benfica 2-0 in the group stages. Their Portuguese opponents have just four points so far and themselves need a victory to have any chance of making the knockout stages, with a Europa League place looking most likely. Bayern are odds-on to win here at 1/3 with Bet365, while Benfica are available at 10/1 with Unibet.

Recommended Bet: Bayern Munich to win 3-0 at 8/1 with BetVictor – BET HERE

Hoffenheim vs Shakhtar Donetsk

The two bottom teams in Group F will look to keep their Champions League futures alive when Hoffenheim clash with Shakhtar Donetsk. Hoffenheim are still waiting for their first victory in this competition after drawing three of their four group stage matches, all of which have been entertaining contests for the neutral. Shakhtar are bottom of Group F with just two points from their four games and need a win to be in with a chance on matchday six of the competition. Hoffenheim are favourites at 9/10 with Unibet, with a Shakhtar victory priced at 3/1 with Betfair.

Recommended Bet: Hoffenheim win and both teams to score YES at 15/8 with Bet365 – BET HERE

Juventus vs Valencia

Top of Group H Juventus take on third-placed Valencia on Tuesday night at the Allianz Stadium. The Serie A champions will be looking to bounce back from a disappointing defeat to Manchester United from last time out, though they still hold a two-point lead over Jose Mourinho’s side. Defeat for Valencia here could see them eliminated from the competition if United also win, meaning it is imperative they get a positive result in this one. Juve are favoured at 4/9 with Betfred, with a Valencia victory currently at 8/1 with Bet365.
