The Jackpot has reached the mega heights of half a million pounds, and the next round of fixtures is a bonus trip to Europe.

Pick six first goalscorers in the selected matches, which you can find here, for your chance to land the cash.

Here are our tips, which you can choose to agree with or not. We won’t be upset.

Liverpool v Spartak Moscow: Mo Salah

The Reds only have to draw to progress to the last 16 – and a win will see them top the group.

They smashed Brighton 5-1 at the weekend, and their front three have been on top form. You could go with Salah, Firmino or Coutinho here and not be worried.

They may have blown a three-goal lead in their last Champions League game, but Spartak have only reached the knockout stages of the UCL once in their 11 previous attempts. Jurgen Klopp will be hoping to get this one over and done with nice and early, ahead of the Liverpool derby this weekend.

Feyenoord v Napoli: Dries Mertens

The Italian lads need a bit of help from Pep Guardiola if they are to progress tomorrow. Should they beat Shakhtar, and Napoli defeat Feyenoord, they may just be able to snatch a spot in the knockout stages.

They’ve only lost two of their last nine matches in all competitions – those losses coming against Man City and Juventus – and have more than enough in the tank to get the win. But who will score first?

Mertens has netted 13 goals for Napoli in all competitions already this season, as well as six assists. He seems like the most obvious choice, though Lorenzo Insigne may not be a bad shout either.

Shakhtar v Manchester City: Raheem Sterling

Man City will be hoping to retain their 100 per cent winning record in the Champions League this week as they visit Shakhtar Donetsk.

We’re backing Raheem Sterling to open the scoring, though. Considering he’s been winning games for City for fun and has netted four goals in five European appearances this season. That’s his most prolific campaign yet.

Porto v Monaco: Vincent Aboubakar

This is a dangerous game. Monaco are already out of the competition, having gained just two points in five games. Not only that, but Porto have won all past meetings with them, and have not let a goal in in three of their last five home games.

A win for Sergio Conceicao’s men could also brighten their hopes of making it into the next round, Vincent Aboubakar is their top scorer this season and despite his side’s rocky form in the last couple of games, has played well this season.

Real Madrid v Borussia Dortmund: Gareth Bale

Yes, that’s a boring and obvious pick. But it does have some foundations.

Real Madrid are already through to the knockout stages, and although they are having a bad time of it at the minute, you could say Dortmund are having an even worse one.

Bale is expected to return to the side for this game, with other fringe players also being allowed the opportunity to come into the team. This gives the Welshman the perfect opportunity to net a nice early goal and win some favour from the Madrid fans early days.

Tottenham v Apoel Nicosia: Heung Min Son

Spurs have got a hectic fixture list on the way over Christmas, and with them already qualified for the knockout stages, there’ll probably be some squad rotation. That makes it difficult to just stick “Kane” in the box and be done with it!

So, if you fancy steering away from Harry Kane, we’re backing Son. He netted in their last Champions League game against Borussia Dortmund, and should survive the changes Poch may choose to make.
