MAN CITY suffered no pain in Ukraine and should blow away their Group F rivals tonight.
Pep Guardiola's side have recovered from a matchday one home defeat to Lyon to win at Hoffenheim and Shakhtar Donetsk.
Their 3-0 victory in Ukraine was as one-sided as it gets and City are close to top form after sinking Southampton 6-1 on Sunday.
Kevin de Bruyne has suffered another injury blow but the Blues have been managing fine without him and are no bigger than 1-8 to pick up the points.
I expect them to do so in style by at least matching their 3-0 victory away so back them -2 at evens with betfair. Odds should be better and if you want more risk try -3 at 23-10 with Paddy Power or go -1 on an acca.
Raheem Sterling has been in the news again after it was revealed he'll be offered a new deal worth around £300k a week.
Man United lost 1-0 at home to Juventus and the gulf in class between the sides was obvious.
Bookies have noticed it too and despite United's form lift William Hill go a best 7-10 on the Italians.
Cristiano Ronaldo failed to net at Old Trafford but set up the winner for Paulo Dybala. All eyes will again be on the former United star and he is 10-3 at McBookie to score first and 11-10 to net at any time.
In the early games it's CSKA Moscow v Roma and Valencia v Young Boys. Roma are trying to arrest a run of five CL defeats in a row away from home and like Liverpool in Belgrade are unlikely to get easy.
CSKA not to lose is a possibility but it's a no bet game for me and same goes for Valencia. The Spaniards should win but haven't done so at home this season having turned into draw specialists.
Bayern Munich should return to winning ways at home to AEK Athens but are just 1-9 so where's the value? Not sure the under-pressure Germans will run up a big score but Robert Lewandowski to score first is a possibility although he is no bigger than 21-10 at Betway.
The other match in Group E sees Benfica tackle Ajax at home. It was 1-0 to the Dutch when they met last month and they can at least avoid defeat against a side that's lost two in a row to Belenenses and Moreirense.
Real Madrid struggled past Viktoria Plzen 2-1 at home and both sides can score again when they meet in the Czech Republic. The holders are missing defenders Marcelo, Raphael Varane and Dani Carvajal and with Plzen conceding nine in three group games best bets are over 2.5 goals at 1-2 with Ladbrokes and Real and both to score at 17-10 with the same firm.
