Best bets for British sides in Wednesday’s Champions League games
The remaining spots in the Champions League knockout rounds will be decided on Wednesday as the group stage wraps up.
All three of the British sides in action this evening have already qualified for the next phase.
Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur have already sealed top spot in their respective groups. Liverpool could drop down to second if they slip up.
Here are some tasty tips for the games involving all three sides:
Liverpool v Spartak Moscow
Spartak Moscow have to win at Anfield to have any chance of progressing. They held the Reds to a 1-1 draw in Russia back in September.
But Liverpool should have too much quality at home. Liverpool to win and Both Teams to Score is 31/20.
Daniel Sturridge could come back into the starting XI here. He’ll be keen to impress and earn more playing time. Sturridge looks like a good pick in the First Goalscorer market at 10/3.
Shakhtar Donetsk v Man City
Man City could complete a clean sweep of the group stage with a win at Shakhtar. But not many sides leave the Metalist Stadium with three points.
The Ukrainian champions have only lost one of their last 11 home games. And they’ll need to avoid defeat to ensure they finish in second. Draw and Both Teams to Score is 16/5.
Paulo Fonseca will want his side to take the initiative. Shakhtar are evens to score first.
Tottenham v APOEL Nicosia
APOEL could get into the Europa League if they better Borussia Dortmund’s result against Real Madrid. But a home win looks on the cards here. Tottenham to Win to Nil is even-money.
Harry Kane hasn’t looked fully fit recently. He could be rested against APOEL, giving Fernando Llorente a chance to get his first Spurs goal. Llorente is 14/5 to score First.
