Champions League Tips: United can’t be topped


MAN UNITED were beaten late in Basel last time out but in reality have already clinched top spot in Group A unless they lose by four goals home to CSKA Moscow.

CSKA are battling with the Swiss for second place and must better their result at pointless Benfica.

United will rest players but will still be strong and Paul Pogba starts ahead of serving a three-game domestic ban.

Much depends what happens in Portugal – Basel are 6-4 at Paddy Power to win – but you’d expect the Russians to push for goals at some point.

United are a best 23-50 with Marathonbet and I wouldn’t even think about it until I see their line-up. Both to score should come in at 11-10 with Paddy Power in what could be an open game.

Basel are a decent price against a team with nothing to play for and who could rotate. My advice is Basel draw no bet at 17-20 with Marathonbet.

In Group C Chelsea sit top and will stay there if they beat Atletico Madrid at home but are just 8-15 at Ladbrokes.

Roma could steal first position if they take care off Qarabag and Chelsea drop points against the Spaniards. Atletico could snatch second with a win so it’s pretty complicated.

Roma’s only defeat in 10 was in Madrid and they won 2-1 in Azerbaijan. Qarabag are tough to beat at home but poor on the road and I can see Roma winning this -2 at  10-11 with Paddy Power.

Barcelona have qualified as group winners ahead of their home meeting with Sporting who could beat Juventus to top spot if they slip up away to Olympiakos.

The La Liga superstars slipped up at the weekend when they were held at home to Celta Vigo and will be looking to bounce back. They’re much bigger than normal at 40-85 at BetStars but check their starting XI before having a punt.

The Greeks have just one point but that came at home to Barca so they could make it tough for the Italians. However, Sporting are unlikely to win in the Nou Camp so a draw might be good enough for Juve who are extremely short at 2-7.

They showed their mettle with a fine 1-0 defeat of previous unbeaten Napoli at the weekend and Gonzalo Higuain could add to his winner with the opener in Athens. He is 12-5 at bet365 to score first.
