Champions League: Villarreal to stun United…

This round of Champions League group games starts with an intriguing clash, Manchester United against Villarreal at the Estadio de la Ceramica.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s tortured reign as United’s manager has come to an end, with Michael Carrick now in temporary charge. But nothing else has changed, United still have very talented players going forward but are defensively weak.

All ten of their European group games since the start of the 2020-21 campaign have ended with over 2.5 goals and nine of those matches rewarded backers of both teams to score. With this in mind, we’re going to snap up the 9/2 that SkyBet offers that Villarreal wins and both teams score.

The late game involving a Premier League side sees Chelsea host Juventus at Stamford Bridge.

The Blues have been on a roll of late, but suffered a 1-0 defeat in Turin at the end of September when the Italians put on a defensive masterclass. They lie second in Group H, three points behind their Italian opponents, and need just a point from their remaining two games to guarantee progression to the last 16.

Germany forward Kai Havertz is a doubt with the hamstring problem that caused him to be substituted over the weekend, while both Timo Werner and Romelu Lukaku lack match fitness.

Given a point potentially suits both teams, and Chelsea, the hosts, could struggle to offer a convincing offensive threat, we’re happy to side with a draw tonight.

Recommendations:

Villarreal/Man Utd: Villarreal to win and both teams to score, 1 pt, at 9/2, SkyBet

Chelsea/Juventus: A draw, 1 pt, at 3/1, bet365
