Tuesday’s key storylines on Champions League matchday four
Stick or twist for Hoops against Bayern
It’s matchday four of this season’s Champions League with a number of vital clashes taking place all over Europe.
After a two-week break, the continent’s top clubs are all back in action. It’s a big night for three British clubs with Celtic, Manchester United, and Chelsea playing.
The Coral News Team takes a look at what should be the key talking points of the night’s games.
Vital clash at Parkhead
If Celtic are to have any chance of progression, they must retrieve some points from their home clash with Bayern Munich.
The Bavarian giants swept the Hoops aside at the Allianz Arena. But Celtic Park will present a much more difficult obstacle.
Celtic are traditionally strong at Celtic Park in European competition. And the Glasgow outfit will be relying heavily on the atmosphere generated to drive them to a famous performance.
If they can’t win, Rodgers side must not lose. With Anderlecht at home in the next round of games, a point could be vital. Celtic on the double-chance are 21/10.
Gladiatorial battle awaits Chelsea in Rome
After a thrilling 3-3 draw with Roma on matchday three, Chelsea head to Rome for the return clash at Stadio Olimpico.
It’s particularly tight in Group C with Chelsea leading the way on seven points. Atletico Madrid host Qarabag and that looks like a handy three points. A decent Blues result in Italy will be imperative.
Both Roma and Chelsea have won three consecutive games since the Stamford Bridge game. Expect an open game in the Italian capital.
United to qualify in style
Jose Mourinho will be in better spirits after a big win over Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday.
His Man United team can qualify particularly early here by beating Benfica and CSKA Moscow fail to beat Basel in Switzerland.
A win at Old Trafford looks nailed-on at odds of 1/3. That may seem short but not when you consider United are unbeaten at their own ground in 37 games.
The Red Devils seem to have lost their attacking edge in attack, but the defence remains solid.
The Portuguese champions have lost three from three in Group A and have scored just one goal.
The Coral News Team reckons United can win with a clean sheet at 21/20.
Mourinho’s men to win Halftime/Fulltime at 21/20 is also a good shout.
