Tuesday 5.45pm: Copenhagen v Man City

Man City cruised past Copenhagen at the Etihad in the Champions League last week and I expect more of the same on Tuesday night.

City won 5-0 last week and I fancy the scoreline to be similar! Instead of Pep Guardiola’s side netting five I’ll give them four. City to Win 4-0 is my first selection.

Then I’m going for Erling Haaland to Score First. Copenhagen will try to give it a go on Tuesday but they’re not in great form at the moment.

Haaland has been on fire this season and he’s a short price to score anytime so I’ll have a go on him bagging first.

Tuesday 8pm: AC Milan v Chelsea

Chelsea dominated against AC Milan at Stamford Bridge last week but I don’t expect a repeat on Tuesday.

The San Siro is a tough place to go no matter whether you’re in form or not. Milan will be out for vengeance and they’ll want to bounce back.

They also come into this one on the back of their big win against Juventus on the weekend. If Chelsea aren’t at it, Milan will pounce. I like the look of AC Milan to Win 2-0.

Tuesday 8pm: Celtic v RB Leipzig

Celtic are also in action on Tuesday but this could be a close game. I’m not huge on picking a winner but I’d side with Celtic to Win because they’ll be playing in front of their home crowd. Those fans are so important to Celtic and they can push them to victory.

If I had to pick a scoreline I’d go with Celtic to Win 1-0. RB Leipzig have been hit and miss this season and they might struggle to deal with the atmosphere.

Wednesday 8pm: Rangers v Liverpool

Liverpool eased past Rangers at Anfield but it will be tougher in front of the Ibrox faithful on Wednesday night. Those fans will roar them on.

However, I do see Liverpool winning this comfortably. I like the look of Liverpool to Win 3-1.

I’m also behind Mo Salah to Score Anytime. He needs to bounce back from a poor performance at Arsenal on Sunday and Salah did bag against Rangers last week. He could do so again.

Wednesday 8pm: Tottenham v Eintracht Frankfurt

Tottenham come into this one on the back of their important win at Brighton on Saturday night and Eintracht Frankfurt look there for the taking.

I fancy Tottenham to Win 2-0 and Harry Kane to Score First. Kane scored an impressive header at Brighton and he’s always hungry to score more.
