Champions League preview - Tuesday 22 Nov


We’ve reached the business end of the Champions League group stages, with teams from across Europe aiming to reach the last sixteen of this illustrious competition.

Group E is very much up for grabs, with Monaco in pole position after claiming eight points from their opening four matches. The French side can make sure of progressing by beating a Tottenham side who might enjoy playing away from Wembley after successive defeats there.

Monaco are 2.50 with William Hill to win the game, with Spurs 3.35 with Unibet to claim a priceless victory which would put them in a great situation. Bayer Leverkusen sit second in the group and William Hill offer 2.20 that they win in Russia.

Monaco v Tottenham Hotspur 20:45 (CET)

Group F looks straightforward in terms of teams to qualify, with Dortmund and Real Madrid a street ahead of the other two teams. However, there is the small issue of which side will land top spot, with that position generally providing a more favourable draw.

After Real’s recent slip-up in Warsaw, bet365 have Dortmund as 1.62 favourites to finish top of Group F, with Thomas Tuchel’s side no price at all to beat Legia on Tuesday night. Real might not find things so easy in Portugal and Sporting look an interesting price at 5.50 to pull off a shock win.

Leicester City have amassed a healthy ten points from four games played, with the Foxes set to finish off the job this week. Claudio Ranieri’s side are 1.44 with Ladbrokes to beat a Club Brugge side who have no points in the group.

Porto are in second place although a trip to Denmark looks tough and perhaps FC Copenhagen can edge them out for the last sixteen berth. Unibet have 2.60 about FCK winning, with Porto on offer at 2.80.

Leicester City v Club Brugge 20:45 (CET)

Group H looks nearly cut and dried, although Lyon will hope that they can do the business in Croatia and Sevilla land victory against Juventus. The French side are 1.60 with William Hill to hold up their end of the bargain, with Dinamo having lost all four games and failing to score in any of them.

Juventus will be happy with a point and there is some merit in backing the draw at 3.20 with William Hill .

Dinamo Zagreb v Lyon 20:45 (CET)
Sevilla v Juventus 20:45 (CET)
