Odds and mini-previews of tonight’s CL ties

However, that’s just one of the night’s key clashes. And we’ve rounded up a flurry of top tips on the other key games below…
Man United v Young Boys
The Red Devils’ recent clashes at Old Trafford have hardly been thrilling affairs. Three of the last five games there have produced one goal or less, and it’s 27/20 for Under 2.5 Goals again.
Jose Mourinho’s men should just about edge this against a side with one group stage point so far. They’re Evens to Win to Nil, and 11/2 for a 2-0 victory.
Anthony Martial has been comfortably their best outfield player this term, with six goals in his last eight outings. He’s 21/20 to find the net Anytime.
AS Roma v Real Madrid
The big question here is which Real Madrid will turn up? The side who won the reverse fixture 3-0 in swashbuckling fashion, or the team who were trounced 3-0 at Eibar on Saturday?
In the Match Betting, Real are 21/20 favourites, with 12/5 about Roma and the Draw at 11/4.
Goals look highly likely. Madrid’s last three games have seen a total of 14 hit the net. It’s 5/4 for Over 3.5 Goals here, while Roma’s top marksman Edin Dzeko is 7/5 Anytime.
Juventus v Valencia
The Old Lady made light work of Valencia in the reverse, winning 2-0 despite spending an hour with 10 men.
Max Allegri’s side are a ruthless outfit, and should see off their low-scoring opponents again. It’s 2/5 for a Juve victory, while they’re 6/5 to Win and Under 3.5 Goals.
Cristiano Ronaldo has been exceptional as usual in recent weeks, with seven goals in his last eight outings. The Portuguese wizard is 5/6 Anytime, and 5/2 to Score Two or More Goals.
AEK Athens v Ajax
The reverse fixture ended 3-0 for Ajax, who are now unbeaten in 12 CL games (including qualifiers).
Another win for the visitors seems likely, with AEK in dismal form. They’re winless in four, losing three times and scoring a single goal.
Ajax are 4/7 to get all three points. And when the Dutch giants win games, they tend to do so in style. 14 of their last 15 victories have come by a margin of two goals or more, and the Ajax -1 handicap is 31/20.
Veteran Klaas-Jan Huntelaar is still banging the goals in, with 12 in his last 21 – including four braces. He’s 5/4 Anytime, and 4/1 to score Two or More Goals.
