FC Rostov vs Atletico Madrid Preview
FC Rostov were always going to be one of the strugglers in Group D and they’ve got a tough match on Wednesday as they host Atletico Madrid in Russia. Unsurprisingly Atletico have yet to concede a goal in two 1-0 wins and we expect another clean sheet here. Rostov are certainly better at home but not good enough to get anything from this match.
Atletico Madrid players, especially defenders.
Barcelona vs Manchester City Preview
Possibly the match of the round, this pits Pep Guardiola’s new boys against his old team and it should be an entertaining spectacle; City may have improved this season but it seems unlikely they’ll give Barca too much trouble and we expect the usual possession game from the Spaniards and a victory.

Napoli vs Besiktas Preview
Napoli and Besiktas occupy the top two places in Group B but it’s the Italians with two wins out of two, four points ahead of their rivals on Wednesday evening. Napoli have been scoring and conceding freely so we should see more goals here from the home side against; expect Besiktas to score one goal though.

Dynamo Kiev vs Benfica
Dynamo Kiev and Benfica both find themselves with one point after two games in Group B but the weakness of this group means it’s still quite wide open. The bookies make Dynamo the favourites for this game but we think it could be a close affair, perhaps a low-scoring draw.
Avoid players from this match unless you need some cheap options.
Arsenal vs Ludogorets Preview
Arsenal have a chance to take a big step towards qualification with what should be a regulation win against Ludogorets at the Emirates stadium; they’re going well in the league ad won their last CL match 2-0 against Basel with something to spare. Their opponents are capable of scoring but should be on the losing side after 90 minutes.

Celtic vs Borussia Monchengladbach Preview
Celtic pulled an unlikely performance out of the hat when they held Manchester City to a 3-3 draw at Celtic Park but previously they’d been beaten 7-0 in Barcelona. This match gives them a chance to earn a very valuable three points against a Monchengladbach side with no points so far; we think will Celtic will grab a narrow 2-1 win.
Avoid defenders from this match and use players from further forward from Celtic if necessary.
Bayern Munich vs PSV Eindhoven Preview
This match between Bayern and PSV is probably the most one-sided of the evening and you’ll struggle to get any odds worth having on a home win. The Germans were surprisingly beaten by Atletico in their last match and will want to put that right here – expect a hefty home win.
Bayern Munich players from all positions.
Paris St-Germain vs Basel Preview
PSG hold joint top spot in Group A with Arsenal on four points but they are arguably the best team in the group and will be looking for a solid home win over a Basel team with one point so far but not much hope of progressing to the next stage. We expect an easy home win and a clean sheet.
