Live on ITV1 & SS2: Wed: 19:45. United travel to Basel and City host Bayern Munich in tonight’s crucial Champions League ties
A point will be enough for Sir Alex Ferguson’s side to progress to the knock out stages and it’s hard to see them getting beaten. Take United to win in a game with a few goals. These sides have scored plenty in the group stages so far making Stan James 5/6 for both sides to score the value bet of the game.
In the other Group C game, Benfica’s 1/8 to beat hapless Otelul Galati to become unlikely pool winners is surely licence to print money for the big hitters at Paddy Power.
Over on Sky Sports 2, Manchester City (4/6 Ladbrokes) must beat Bayern Munich to stand any chance of progressing from Group A. The price is an absolute must take as City will be at full strength to pull out all the stops against the Germans who are certain to feel a weakened team having already qualified. The draw is 31/10 at Bwin and Munich are 9/2 at Bet365.
A City win will be meaningless however if Napoli (8/11 Sportingbet) inflict a sixth straight defeat on Villarreal and whilst a win for the hosts (4/1 ) looks unlikley the Spaniards are playing for pride and could force a draw to help City on their way at 27/10 at Unibet.com.
In the other groups, Inter Milan (7/5 ) have qualified but should still have touch much at home against CSKA Moscow (2/1 Unibet) who still have an outside chance of qualifying in second place. Skybet have the best price about the draw at 5/2.
The real crunch match in Group B sees two evenly match sides go head to head as Lille (8/15 bet365) host Trabzonspor (11/2 ). The French side will settle for a point and that looks the best value at 3/1 with Sportingbet.
Finally Group D and only a big win for table toppers Real Madrid (5/4 Stan James) can quash the hopes of second placed Ajax (23/10 Bwin). A draw for the Dutch will ensure their qualification and such an outcome can be backed at 12/5 at totesport.
Lyon (10/11 Paddy Power) need a hefty win against Dinamo Zagreb (16/5 ) and a big defeat for Ajax to qualify – an eight goal swing in fact which means this match could peater out into a meaningless draw; 5/2 Sportingbet.com.
