Real Madrid v Man Utd: Live on Sky Sports 2: Wednesday 19:45
It’s not often you see Manchester United priced at odds-against when given a one-goal start, but they’re 5/4 to beat Real Madrid in Bet365‘s handicap market, while Skybet offer them at 6/1 to secure victory by a single goal margin.
Jose v Sir Fergie; Cristiano Ronaldo v the rest. It promises to be a compelling night at the Bernabeu and Real are expected to emerge victorious, Ladbrokes pricing them at 7/10 to win. But United, offered at an astonishing 4/1 to win by Stan James, are renowned for their tenacity and determination, characteristics instilled by their equally determined manager. Madrid might nick it, but the draw, available at 17/5 (betvictor) looks particularly good value.
Shakhtar Donetsk v Borussia Dortmund: Live on Sky Sports 4: Wednesday 19:45
Shakhtar Donetsk are in the middle of their mid-season break, a factor which should work in favour of Borussia Dortmund, even though the German lost 4-1 at home against Hamburg on Saturday. Shakhtar are Coral’s marginal 6/4 favourites to win on Wednesday, although Dortmund are 2/5 (Paddy Power) to qualify for the next round.
