United to suffer more Juve woe


Matchday Four in the Champions League continues on Wednesday and all eyes will be on Turin as Cristiano Ronaldo and his Juventus side host Manchester United in Group H.

Juventus to win to zero @ 7/5

Ronaldo was the star attraction in the build up to last month’s 1-0 win at Old Trafford but the Bianconeri’s defence were the true heroes, dominating the United attack and setting the tone for a one-sided victory.

Already six points clear at the top of Serie A, European success is Juve’s real goal this season and they face a side who were again shaky in their 2-1 Premier League triumph at Bournemouth.

After complaining about the gulf in class between the squads in the aftermath of the defeat on home turf, Jose Mourinho will set his side up to defend.

However, Juve look a level above this United outfit and it could be another comfortable evening for the Italian champions.

Lyon v Hoffenheim – Over 3.5 Goals @ 21/20

Perhaps the most entertaining fixture on Wednesday could come from Manchester City’s group as Lyon host Hoffenheim in Group F.

Les Gones shocked City 2-1 on Matchday One but their defensive foibles were exposed in the 2-2 home draw against Shakhtar Donetsk and last month’s 3-3 result in Germany.

Hoffenheim head to France on the back of a 4-1 win at Bayer Leverkusen but have conceded at least two goals in their last five Champions League matches.

This could be the fixture that decides who makes it to the last 16 so expect goals, with Lyon netting at least twice in all three of their games in this competition.

Ajax to win @ 2/1

Bayern Munich’s presence in Group E suggested it would be one-sided but Ajax’s form has changed all that and they look a good price to win at Benfica.

The Aguias seem a team in transition and their young players, while talented, lack the real star power of some of those developing so well in Amsterdam.

Erik ten Hag guided his side to a 1-1 draw away to Bayern and they will walk out in Lisbon searching for their first away victory in the Champions League since 2011/12.

A tight game is likely, with less than 2.5 goals scored in nine of Benfica’s last 11 European matches, but if either team is going to snatch it, Ajax look to have the edge.
