PSV v Manchester United: PSV or draw – 1.67
Memphis Depay returns to the club that made his name as Louis van Gaal’s side look to start their European campaign with a bang. It won’t be as easy as many seem to think in Eindhoven. PSV lost just three times on their own patch in the whole of last season and have started this one with a pair of wins.
The Red Devils have only won one of their previous seven games away from Old Trafford in this competition proper and they will be tested by the Dutch champions.
Manchester City v Juventus: Man City to win without conceding a goal – 2.75
The Old Lady have made a sketchy start to their title defence and they are yet to taste success this season. The Turin club have over gone a major overhaul this summer, with a high turnover of players meaning they are struggling to gel, and this game has come too soon in the team’s infancy.
Conversely, City have been on fire, winning every one of their games without conceding a goal. Their defence looks strong and they have a massive threat going forward, even without Sergio Aguero. It will be a tough night in the north-west for the Bianconeri.
Wolfsburg v CSKA Moscow: Draw – 3.65
Kevin De Bruyne-less they may be, but Wolfsburg are not without their strengths. The German club are undefeated this season and in the likes of Julian Draxler, Luiz Gustavo and Andre Schurrle they have some seriously good players.
Nevertheless, their visitors have seven wins and one draw from an unblemished start in Russia. They are no mugs, as they showed winning at the Etihad last season, and they will cause Bendtnder and co some serious strife.
Real Madrid v Shakhtar Donetsk: Ronaldo to score first – 3.30
Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi start this Champions League campaign on an even keel. Both men have scored an incredible 77 goals in Europe’s elite competition, and make no mistake, the Portuguese will be eager to get his nose in front, even if it is just for 24 hours.
He bagged himself no less than five goals at the weekend to open his account for the season and the Ukrainians' defence could be in for some rough treatment. The Portuguese scored 10 goals in this competition last season and they all came in the first half.
Sevilla v Monchengladbach: Sevilla to win without conceding – 2.65
Sevilla are a side who rarely lose at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan. In fact, only Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid have won their in the previous 39 matches played out in Seville.
In that incredible run, Los Rojiblancos have also kept an impressive 20 clean sheets, which includes the one they earned when beating their opponents here in last season’s Europa League. The visitors have lost all four of their games in the Bundesliga, conceding more goals in that time than in the whole of the second half of the last campaign.
