Another night of Champions League action awaits, with holders Real Madrid and Serie A winners Juventus amongst the sides dreaming of Euro glory.
You can check out our full preview of Manchester City v Olympique Lyonnais here . But we’ve rounded up the top tips on the evening’s other big games below…
Juventus v Valencia
Juve have begun this season in typically clinical campaign. Four wins from four sees them sitting pretty at Serie A’s summit. And they should be far too good for Valencia.
The Spaniards are winless after their first four games in La Liga. Marcelino’s men have also drawn a blank in two of those.
Victory for Juventus is an even-money shot, while they’re 21/10 to pair a win with a clean sheet.
Cristiano Ronaldo bagged his first goals for the Old Lady in Sunday’s defeat of Sassuolo. He’s 23/20 to net anytime against Valencia, and 16/5 to break the deadlock.
Young Boys Bern v Manchester United
All the signs point to an entertaining game in Switzerland. Gerardo Seoane’s men have won their first six league matches this term, while United are fresh off the back of away wins at Burnley and Watford.
Goals seem likely, with seven of the hosts’ last eight games producing goals at either end. It’s 4/5 for Both Teams to Score, while the Score Draw is a 19/5 shot.
Seven from eight is also the recent scoring tally of Young Boys hitman Guillaume Hoarau. He’s 21/10 to add to his tally. Meanwhile, Red Devils ace Romelu Lukaku heads the Anytime Scorer betting at 5/4.
Real Madrid v AS Roma
Los Blancos are in rip-roaring form at the Santiago Bernabeu. They’ve won six on the trot at home, bagging 15 goals and shipping a Scrooge-like two.
They host a Roma side who are winless in three games, and it’s 1/3 for Julen Lopetegui’s side to get maximum points. Meanwhile, the more ambitious Real -2 handicap is priced up at 2/1.
Gareth Bale has been banging the goals in of late, and heads the Goalscorer markets by some distance. You can get 13/5 on the Welshman netting the opener.
Shakhtar Donetsk v TSV Hoffenheim
The Ukrainians look to have a pretty easy start to their UCL adventure against a Hoffenheim side who’ve won just three of their last 18 away games.
With Shakhtar close to unstoppable at the Donbass Arena, this should be pretty straightforward stuff. A Shakhtar victory is 10/11, with the home side 10/1 for a 2-0 win.
Their star man is Brazilian Junior Moraes. He’s netted five in five ahead of this clash. The 31-year-old is 23/20 to notch again, while those who fancy a big price can get him at 28/1 to be First Goalscorer in a 2-0 win.
