Tuesday’s Champions League tips: Napoli and Liverpool among our picks
Richard Marsh | 6 November 2018
Odds and previews for tonight’s fixtures
The second half of the Champions League group stages begin tonight, and the pressure is building for teams hoping to progress as gameweek four looms.
That includes Tottenham Hotspur, who face a must-win clash against PSV Eindhoven at Wembley. There’s a full match preview of that one right here.
Stay put though for a one-stop guide to four of tonight’s other huge contests, starting with Liverpool’s trip to Serbia…
Crvena Zvezda v Liverpool
Liverpool are top of a competitive Group C, but they can’t afford to drop points in Belgrade.
A win would put them in a strong position, given that at least one of Napoli and/or Paris Saint-Germain must drop points tonight.
The Reds cruised to a 4-0 win over Crvena Zvezda at Anfield, and they’re 1/5 to win again.
Xherdan Shaqiri hasn’t been included in the squad for political reasons, but Klopp still has an abundance of forwards to call upon.
Napoli v Paris Saint-Germain
An injury-time strike from Angel di Maria salvaged a 2-2 for Paris Saint-Germain versus Napoli a fortnight ago.
Another draw would coupled with a Liverpool win would put the Premier League side in firm control of Group C.
Kylian Mbappe and Neymar share first goalscorer favouritism at 9/2, although neither could find the net in the first meeting last month.
Dries Mertens did, and the Belgian is 11/2 to break the deadlock in Naples.
Atletico Madrid v Borussia Dortmund
There’ll be a sense of vengeance in the air when Atletico Madrid take on Borussia Dortmund tonight.
The Bundesliga leaders hammered Atleti 4-0 last month, handing out Diego Simeone’s heaviest defeat as a manager.
Atleti have kept four clean sheets in six home games this term. They’re 23/10 to win to nil.
Inter Milan v Barcelona
Barcelona could go through tonight if results go their way, while a win for Inter Milan would be a crushing blow to Tottenham’s hopes.
It remains to be seen whether Lionel Messi features tonight. The Argentine ace is in the squad but is still recovering from a fractured arm, and Barcelona don’t need to risk him.
