Champions League: Kevin to shine…

The Champions League continues tonight and subscribers can play with their winnings from last night. This is due to Frank Lampard leaving Christian Pulisic on the bench at Stamford Bridge meaning the penalty from Dries Mertens against Liverpool counted twice.

Tonight Manchester City travel to the Ukraine to take on Shakhtar Donetsk. The current Premier League champions list ground in defence on Saturday, losing to Norwich, and will be keen to make amends.

City have some key injuries in their defence but it’s further forward that we think is key. Manager Pep Guardiola left out midfielder Kevin de Bruyne from his starting line up on the weekend, presumably to rest him for tonight’s game. We’ll take the Belgian midfield star to boss tonight’s game, including scoring.

The second game sees last season’s beaten finalist Tottenham Hotspur travel to Greece to take on Olympiakos.

Spurs will have fretted over the summer break about the final and will be keen to get to the big show once more. However, this isn’t an easy starter, and the hosts will be keen to take a high profile scalp.

Tottenham have been hit and miss in the league so far this new season, drawing away to Man City but losing at home to Newcastle. We think this will be a tight affair with few goals, and will bank on a draw.
