Well this is it, the final round of group ties in the Champions League take place tonight before the serious business of the knockout-phases starts in 2017.
It promises to be a fascinating night of action with places in Monday morning’s last 16 draw still up for grabs.
There isn’t much on the line for English sides as Spurs find themselves out of the running to advance and champions Leicester are already through with a game to spare.
Despite all that, we should have a good night of football in store and we’ve put together an action-packed acca that could deliver for our punters at just over 12/1. Let’s take you through it…
With his thoughts already turning to the last 16, Leicester manager Claudio Ranieri is expected to ring the changes for the trip to Porto tonight.
This could be the reason our traders have the Foxes as massive outsiders for the contest, that and the fact that Leicester’s league form is utterly terrible – winning just one of their last five.
Porto have only conceded five goals in their last 12 outings and will be desperate to win tonight to stave off the treat of Copenhagan, who travel to group whipping boys Club Brugge, for qualification.
We think that added motivation should swing it the way of the Portuguese men at .
Mauricio Pochettino’s Spurs battle it out at Wembley against Russian outfit CSKA Moscow with the bogey prize of a Europa League spot on offer for the winner.
Tottenham picked off CSKA in Moscow for their only victory in the competition this season earlier in the campaign, and go into the contest knowing their opponent’s shot-stopper has the weight of the world on his shoulders.
This is because Russia’s number one Igor Akinfeev hasn’t kept a clean sheet in the Champions League for CSKA in over a DECADE! By the way, it’s if you fancy no Spurs player to score tonight – just saying.
The men from North London got back on the horse with a thumping 5-0 victory against Swansea at the weekend and you’d have to fancy them to finally end their Wembley hoodoo tonight at .
The next leg of acca takes us to Spain for the heavyweight contest to decide who tops Group F between Real Madrid and Dortmund. We are taking title holders Madrid in this one at , as they haven’t tasted defeat since all the way back in April.
A dead rubber between Bayer Leverkusen and Monaco in Tottenham’s group is our next port of call. With both clubs likely to hold key players in reserve, we’re going to back home advantage and add the Germans to our betslip at .
Finally, we end our journey in Poland with the tie that features Legia Warsaw facing up to Sporting Lisbon. Legia have been woeful, picking up only a single point in the tournament so far and conceding a whopping 24 goals along the way. So Sporting round out our wager at .
