Live Sky Sports 2 & 4: Tue: 19:45. Arsenal are 4/11 (Hills) to beat Olympiakos and Man City 5/6 (Stan James) to see off Dortmund. Peter Sharkey previews tonight’s Champions League action

Arsenal v Olympiakos: Live on Sky Sports 4: 19:45
Over the course of almost a decade, Arsenal have played 42 home matches in the Champions League, losing only twice – and that was to English opponents. Given that Olympiakos’s Champions League record away from home is best described as abysmal (they’ve managed just three away victories in 56 matches), it’s no surprise to see the Gunners installed as William Hill’s 4/11 jollies to secure maximum points.

Olympiakos arrive in London priced as Skybet’s massive 9/1 underdogs, while even the draw, offered at 4/1 (Ladbrokes) looks no better than a remote possibility.

Punters looking for slightly more persuasive odds may fancy running the rule over bet365’s even money for Arsenal to win when kicking off with a one goal deficit, or else Stan James’s 5/6 for Arsenal to be in front at 45 minutes. Elsewhere, BetVictor.com chalks 6/5 about the match yielding more than 2.5 goals and, as Arsenal have beaten Olympiakos in two of the last three group stages, Paddy Power’s 7/1 for the Gunners to register a 2-1 win looks a decent bet.

Manchester City v Borussia Dortmund: Live on Sky Sports 2: 19:45
As Manchester City were succumbing to an unlucky 3-2 defeat to Real Madrid a fortnight ago, Borussia Dortmund were beating Ajax 1-0, a result which makes their 7/2 price (Ladbrokes) to win tonight look a little generous.

Naturally, City start as Stan James’s 5/6 favourites to secure three much-needed points and as their home record in European competition is impressive – they’ve lost only one of 34 matches played – then it’s reasonable to assume that BetVictor’s 4/7 for them to open the scoring cannot be discounted.

BetVictor.com also price the match draw at an attractive 13/5 as Stan James considers Sergio Aguero a 5/1 shot to find the net first. In other markets, bet365 chalk 3/1 about City enjoying a one goal margin of victory as Skybet post an enormous 8/1 against a 1-0 home win.
