Tuesday night’s Champions League promises a fascinating night of football and we’re piled over the stats and form of all the teams involved in the late kickoffs, 8pm, and have turned up a four-fold Acca that’s stuffed with value. Let’s get started then with Celtic taking on Shakhtar Donetsk in Glasgow.
WELCOME TO PADDY POWER NEWS!
TV: BT Sport, 8pm
With just one more game to come following this one, away to Real Madrid, Celtic have to get at least five points, which obviously doesn’t add up in football, so really they need two wins, to overtake Shakhtar if they’re to at least make it into the Europa League. The Bhoys are rock bottom of Group F with just one point from their four games so far. Their recent form is promising though, they’ve won four of their last five fixtures, losing the other one and at Celtic Park have won three and lost two, scoring 12, conceding seven.
Donetsk have won one, drawn two and lost one of their four Champions League games so far and over their last five have won three, drawn one and lost one while on their recent excursions have, like Celtic, won three and lost two, also scoring 12 and conceding six. The away side are chasing second place in the group and need the win as well so we should see plenty of attacking football here and with both teams scoring and conceding so many of late we have to go with Both Teams to Score & Over 2.5 Goals here.

Two points from their remaining two games will ensure that Borussia Dortmund advance to the next round of the Champions League. With 10 points, Man City have already qualified. BVB have put seven unanswered past their opponents over their last two games but drew one and lost two of their other three games. At the Westfalenstadion they’ve now gone six games undefeated with four wins and two draws, scoring 13 while conceding just three. Their former striker Erlang Haaland though will be keen to add to that tally.
Manchester City have won three, drawn one and lost one over their last five fixtures while away from home have won two, drawn two and lost one. With eight games, including this one to be played by City over the next three weeks you’d have to expect Pep Guardiola to rest a few key players here, especially since they’ve already qualified. Ilkay Gundogen was an unused substitute over the weekend and will surely feature against his former employers and with Haaland in such a goal-scoring streak he’s unlikely to sit this out. Both teams are scoring so many goals of late that we simply have to go with Over 3.5 goals here.

PSG have, surprisingly, won just two of their last five fixtures in all competitions, drawing the other three and those two draws against Benfica in the Champions League means they’ve not yet qualified for the next round but a win here will see them over the line. On home soil, the Parisians have won four of their last five, drawing the other one, scoring seven while conceding three.
Haifa, of course, beat Juventus 2-0 in their last Champions League clash and have won three and lost two of their last five matches but away from home they’ve endured a bad run, winning just one of their last five games, losing the other four, scoring four and conceding 11, failing to score in three of those games. The hosts have kept four clean sheets over their last six and we see that trend continuing here.

Leipzig are in second position on six points with Shakhtar one behind them on five. Real have already qualified with 10 points and it’s all set up wonderfully for the final game next week when the Ukranians host Leipzig next week. If the hosts should win here however, and Donetsk lose in Glasgow they’ll be assured of advancing. The home side have now gone seven games without a loss, winning five and drawing two while at the RB Arena have won five from five, scoring 17 and conceding just three.
Real Madrid have won 14 of their 16 games so far this season in all competitions, drawing the other two and will, of course, want to keep that unbeaten run intact here. Of their last five fixtures, Los Blancos have won four and drawn one and over their away games have also won four and drawn one, scoring 10 and conceding two. With Over 3.5 goals landing in six of Leipzig’s last eight home games and both in such great goal-scoring form we’re very much liking the odds of Over 3.5 goals.
