The Champions League returns after the international break, with both English teams at home and expected to win. Hopefully subscribers can put the cash won on Grealish’s man of the match performance yesterday to good use.
Tottenham are at home to Olympiakos, fresh from a morale-boosting win over West Ham in Jose Mourinho’s first game in charge.
Spurs will be keen to play again, with confidence flooding back after the change of manager. And they face a Greek side which seems to suffer stage fright away from home. They have lost each of their last six away games in the Champions League.
Tottenham should win, despite drawing the reverse fixture in Athens, and they may well score quite a few in the process. Son Heung-Min scored the first goal of the Mourinho era on Saturday and is likely to be a serious threat with his pace. Bet365 only offers 9/2 that he scores a brace, so SkyBet’s enhanced 9/1 looks a good deal. We’ll be on.
The second game sees Manchester City host Shakhtar Donetsk, needing only to draw to qualify for the knockout phase.
The two sides have met twice before in the Champions League, and Shakhtar gage list on both of their visits to the Etihad, conceding eight without reply.
City will have make due without star striker Sergio Aguero for the next few weeks because of injury, and this means Gabriel Jesus is likely to have a prolonged run in the side. City win 3-0 in the reverse fixture earlier this year, with Jesus scoring once. He’s best priced at 14/5 to score two, but 12/1 with SkyBet for a hat trick. We’ll try this.
Tottenham/Olympiakos: Son to score a brace, 1 pt, at 9/1, SkyBet
Man City/Shakhtar Donetsk: Jesus to score a hat trick, 1 pt, at 12/1, SkyBet
