Spurs insured they qualified for the knockout stage of the Champions League last night after they came from behind to defeat Borussia Dortmund 2-1 at the Signal Iduna Park in Dortmund, Germany. Liverpool through away a superb chance to consolidate their lead and chance of winning Group E last night as they through away a 3-0 half time lead against Sevilla. who fought back to win the second half 3-0 and draw the match at the Estadio Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán in Sevilla, Spain.
The Champions League continues tonight and Chelsea, who are second in Group C and Manchester United who lead Group A, fly the flag for the English clubs away against Qarabag and Basel respectively.
Celtic represent Scotland and face a monumental task away at Group B leaders PSG. The match of the night in the Champions League is between Italian giants Juventus and Spanish giants Barcelona in Group D at the Allianz Stadium in Turin, Italy. Barcelona lead the group on 10 points, two ahead of Juventus in second so a win for either side will ensure they end the night as group leaders while a draw would leave things as they are with Barcelona in the driving seat.
Atletico Madrid and Group C leaders Roma are also involved in a battle for their group at the Wanda Metropolitano in Madrid. A win for the Italians will move them one step closer to qualifying for the knockout stage but if they draw or lose and Chelsea get back to winning ways after being thrashed 3-0 by Roma last time out, it will put the Blues in the driving position in the group. From a betting perspective in the Champions League backing Chelsea and Manchester United in a double should go close to returning a profit and with Hazard starting to hit form and scoring again and Pogba scoring on his return from injury and looking fit its worth siding with both to score at any-time during the 90 minutes of the match tonight or if you’re looking for a better return you can back the match doubles with Chelsea to win and Hazard to score and Man Utd to win and Pogba to score.
