Football ManUtd120Matchday 4 for Uefa Champions League Groups E to H takes place on Tuesday night and we take a look at selected matches including Chelsea's visit to Rennes and Manchester United v Basaksehir




Group E


Chelsea and Sevilla are in control of this group with both sides unbeaten on 7 points whilst Krasnodar and Rennes have 1 point a piece. Chelsea are top on goal difference with 7 scored and they have yet to concede and they will be keen to secure a place in the knockout rounds at the earliest opportunity with a hectic domestic schedule to contend with.

Victory for Chelsea at Rennes and likewise for Sevilla at Krasnodar would achieve that aim and after a 3-0 win over Rennes at Stamford Bridge on Matchday 3 it looks hard to oppose Lampard's team. Rennes have lost 5 of their last 6 in all competitions and Chelsea have won 5 on the spin, scoring at least 3 goals in the first 4 of those matches prior to a 2-0 win at Newcastle at the weekend.

I can see Chelsea winning with daylight.


Bets: Handicap Chelsea -1 goal at 13/8


Group F


Dortmund top this group with 6 points, 1 clear of Lazio, 2 better off than Club Brugge and Zenit have just 1 point to show for their efforts so far.

Dortmund have recovered from losing their opening group match 3-1 at Lazio with a 2-0 home win over Zenit followed by a 3-0 win at Brugge. They have won 5 of their last 6 in all competitions and the sole defeat came in a league game against Bayern.

Lazio's win over Dortmund came back on Matchday 1 and they have followed up with 1-1 draws away from home. Back in Rome they look hard to oppose and although Zenit will be desperate to revive their hopes of emerging from the group, preference is for the home win.


Bets: Lazio to win at 8/10.




Group G


Barcelona made it 3 wins from 3 when they beat Kyiv 2-1 in a home game on Matchday 3 and they are a short price to seal their last 16 spot in the return. Barca are 3 points clear of second placed Juve who were 4-1 winners at Ferencvaros last time out.

This group looks done and dusted and is swerved in terms of a betting interest.


Group H


Manchester United and Leipzig have 6 points each, PSG have 3 and Basaksehir also have 3 points in this quartet.

After terrific wins at PSG (2-1) and at home to Leipzig (5-0) United shot themselves in the foot with a 2-1 defeat at Basaksehir on Matchday 3. With tough games to come victory here is non negotiable and I expect the English side to make amends on Tuesday, keeping a clean sheet in the process.

The PSG v Leipzig game looks trickier to call even though the Ligue 1 side are as short as 4/7 in the match result betting. Leipzig collapsed in the later stages of their trip to Old Trafford, conceding 4 goals in the last 16 minutes. They showed what they can do at home to PSG last time out with a 2-0 win and I expect this to be a higher scoring affair with over 3.5 goals providing the betting interest.


Bets: Man United to win and both teams to score? (no) at 20/21

PSG v Leipzig over 3.5 goals at 10/11
