Champions League: Stars to shine…

The Champions League returns tonight, with two English teams involved.

Manchester United are virtually through to the knockout stages, they need just one point at home to CSKA Moscow to qualify as the group winner.

And they should get this with ease. The visitors are winless in their five games against United, while the Red Devils have only lost two group games in the Champions League at home, the last time being in 2012.

United manager Jose Mourinho has suggested he will make changes to the side that won at Arsenal on Saturday, but one player sure to start is midfield maestro Paul Pogba given his red card means he has plenty of rest time coming in the league. We expect the French star to bounce back with a goal tonight.

There is much more on the second game, as Chelsea host Atletico Madrid. The Blues have qualified for the knockout phase but need a win to guarantee first position and a top seeding, while the Spaniards need to win to have any hope of progressing.

This will be a difficult game for the home team, but the fact Atletico have to attack could help. Chelsea have been in good form of late, with Belgian star Eden Hazard their driving force. We take Hazard to shine again with a goal.

Recommendation: Pogba and Hazard to both score anytime as a double, 1 pt, at 13/2, William HillĀ
