Di Francesco’s team need a win tonight, and they are the favourites with bet365 to score the most goals across the eight continental matches

AS Roma need to win tonight to guarantee their qualification for the Champions League Round of 16 and will feel confident of doing so against Azerbaijani champions FK Qarabag at home.

The Italian giants have not been free-scoring in this season’s competition, and have only scored eight times in their five matches, but their opponents have nothing to play for, so Roma will be confident of rattling in plenty of goals against a side that shipped six goals at Chelsea in matchday one.

As such, bet365 price Eusebio Di Francesco's side at just 2/1 (3.0) to net more than any other team tonight, which is certainly a possibility as Roma will be aiming to finish an inconsistent group stage in style.

The joint-second favourites in the betting are the big guns from Group D; Barcelona and Juventus are both available at 6/1 (7.00) to top the scoring tonight, with the Spanish league leaders looking to add to a fairly paltry seven goals - at least by their standards - at home to Sporting. 

Meanwhile, Juventus travel to Olympiakos, who have already been eliminated from Europe for this season, but may prove to be tricky for Max Allegri’s side as the Greek outfit held Barca to a 0-0 draw in October.

Manchester United are the shortest priced English side and look an interesting bet at 8/1 (9.0) as they host CSKA Moscow. Whilst United only need to avoid a heavy defeat to be guaranteed top spot in Group A, the Red Devils may cut loose against a side they put four past in Russia just under three months ago.

Celtic are available at 11/1 (12.0) host an Anderlecht side that need to beat the Scottish champions by four goals or more to qualify for the Europa League, whilst the Belgians are 33/1 (34.0) and that bet will almost certainly pay out if they are able to get the result they crave in Glasgow.

You can also bet on how many goals there will be in total across the eight matches, and with teams like Paris Saint-Germain and Man United in action, over 27.5 goals to be scored on the night is tempting at a tasty 5/2 (3.50).

With four qualification spots still up for grabs it is perhaps more likely that there will be several tight matches, though, so a bet on under 21.5 goals at 9/4 (3.25) is definitely worth considering and is a bet that would have paid out when these very teams were in action on matchday four.
