The best bets for British sides in Tuesday’s Champions League games

| 31.10.2017

It’s matchweek four of the Champions League, and there is plenty at stake for British sides in Tuesday’s fixtures.

Man United could book their place in the knockout stages, while Chelsea’s fate could go either way.

Celtic are also in action as a packed Celtic Park welcomes Bayern Munich…

We’ve run the rule over all three British clubs and come up with the best bets for each.

Manchester United v Benfica

Victory for Jose Mourinho’s Man United at home to Benfica, coupled with CSKA Moscow failing to beat Basel, will see the Red Devils into the knockout stages at the earliest opportunity.

And given their current form at Old Trafford, the two-time European champions are set for three points.

A 1-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday meant the Red Devils have now won eight on the spin at home, and are unbeaten in 37 at the Theatre of Dreams.

Benfica have won just four of their last 22 Champions League away games, so a home win is odds-on at 1/3.

But better value lies in United’s rearguard action again proving resolute. With seven clean sheets from eight at Old Trafford, the hosts are 21/20 to win to nil.

Roma v Chelsea

Having produced an excellent display to win away at Atletico Madrid, Chelsea will need to do likewise at Roma.

The two sides played out a thrilling 3-3 draw at Stamford Bridge, but Antonio Conte will be concerned over his side’s struggles to contain Edin Dzeko.

Both teams have won three games on the spin since they met in West London.

But Roma have failed to score in each of their last four Champions League home games.

Things are tight in Group C though, and Atletico Madrid are expected to pile on the pressure when they host Qarabag.

So that could lead to another attacking and open encounter in the Italian capital. Both teams to score is 8/15, while over 3.5 goals looks a savvy option at 8/5.

Edin Dzeko is 9/2 to bag another brace, while 12/1 says Eden Hazard again nets a double versus the Serie A outfit.

Celtic v Bayern Munich

Barcelona, Manchester United and Juventus. All three sides have gone to Celtic Park in the Champions League and been defeated.

The Bhoys could only draw at the weekend, but history shows they must never be discounted on the big European nights.

It won’t be easy though. Bayern have rediscovered their mojo since persuading Jupp Heynckes to return to the club.

The German side are 4/11 for the win, with Celtic are 15/2 for another famous success.

Slightly wiser options are backing Celtic Draw No Bet at 9/2, or on the Celtic/Draw Double Chance at 21/10.
