Champions League Treble: Wins for Benfica, Barcelona and Manchester United

There are plenty of potentially decisive games in tonight's Champions League, with lots of sides desperate for wins. Al Hain-Cole is banking on three for a treble worth 37/10

Kick-off: 19:45 GMT
Tip: Barcelona to win at 3/10 (1.30) with William Hill

After having their hearts broken in the final minute at Camp Nou, Celtic understand all too well the almost impossible task of keeping Barcelona at bay.

The Scottish champions won plenty of accolades, but none of the points against the Spanish giants, and will have an even tougher task this time around without injured key men Gary Hooper and Emilio Izaguirre.

Realistically, Neil Lennon will not be expecting anything from this encounter, as he knows that qualification would still be a possibility without beating a side that has had such an outstanding run in the Champions League recently.

The Blaugrana have a 100 per cent record in this year’s competition under new boss Tito Vilanova, and have come out on top in their last three fixtures against The Hoops.

Victory for Barcelona in this game would seal top spot, and is to be expected at odds of 3/10 (1.30) with William Hill.

Spartak Moscow
Kick off: 19:45 GMT
Tip: Benfica to win at 4/7 (1.57) with William Hill

With Barcelona fulfilling expectations as runaway Group G leaders, Benfica still have a chance to get their qualification bid up and running when they host Spartak Moscow this evening.

The Portuguese giants currently sit bottom with a single point to their name, but can move back into contention with a victory over a side that has won just four of their last 24 away Champions League encounters, losing 17.

Despite their European struggles, Jorge Jesus’s men are unbeaten in their last 15 domestic matches, and have suffered just five losses in their last 54 games at the Estadio da Luz.

After losing against Chelsea and Barcelona in the last two ties in their own backyard, the Eagles will be desperate to avoid suffering a third successive European home defeat for the first time in their history, and should have enough to overturn the competition’s worst defence so far.

Expect the hosts to come out on top in a must-win encounter here, at odds of 4/7 (1.57).

Sporting Braga
Manchester United
Kick-off: 19:45 GMT
Manchester United to win at 13/10 (2.30) with William Hill

Despite not appearing utterly convincing, Manchester United have won all three of their Champions League fixtures so far this season, and can secure qualification for the next round with another victory tonight.

Ferguson’s men come into this encounter in excellent form, having now won 12 of their last 14 fixtures in all competitions, and will be confident of extending that run here.

The Red Devils are undefeated in 21 of their last 23 matches in the Champions League, and have not lost in their last four trips to Portugal.

Their opponents have already shown themselves to be vulnerable at the Estadio Municipal in Europe this season, losing 2-0 against Cluj on the opening day.

A win here would allow Manchester United to relax in the remaining two group games, so expect Ferguson to go out all guns blazing to ensure all three points, at odds of 13/10 (2.30).
