thumbnail Hello,

With three British sides in action this evening, Phil Kitromilides has picked out three selections from their matches, which combined as a treble returns just under 4/1 (5.00)


Manchester United
VS
Galatasaray
Kick off: 20:45CET
Tip: Manchester United to win at 3/10 (1.33)

Manchester United will be confident of getting their European campaign off to a winning start against the champions of Turkey this evening.

Last season's failure to get out of the group stage can be attributed largely to their failure to pick up maximum points at home, drawing two of their three matches at Old Trafford.

This time round, though, they will be even more motivated to earn a victory against a Galatasaary side playing in the Champions League for the first time in  four years. The Turks have never been good away from home and have lost six of their last eight matches on the road in the competition, so back United to start the treble.

Chelsea
VS
Juventus
Kick off: 20:45CET
Tip: Both teams to score 5/6 (1.83)

The champions of Europe host the champions of Italy in the standout fixture of this evening's matches. Juventus are back in the big time after a three-year absence and have begun this Serie A season as they finished the previous one; unbeaten.

Three wins from three matches with nine goals scored show that the Old Lady of Italian football is not about to relinquish her title without a fight, and Chelsea will be extremely wary of the attacking threat posed by Juve.

Both teams though are prone to conceding goals as well as scoring them, and a clean sheet for either side at Stamford Bridge this evening looks unlikely.

Celtic
VS
Benfica
Kick off: 20:45CET
Tip: Over 2.5 goals at 43/40 (2.08)

A tough-looking opener for Celtic is in store as they welcome Portuguese giants Benfica to Glasgow. The Eagles have begun the new season in fine scoring form netting 10 times in their three matches played.

Last season, they were also not shy in front of goal, finding the net in each of the five away matches they contested in the Champions League, including twice at Old Trafford.

Celtic meantime have scored in each of the nine competitive matches they have played so far this season, so a high-scoring affair looks extremely likely.
