8pm: Chelsea v Dinamo Zagreb

BT Sport 2

Chelsea -1

Chelsea have come a long way since losing their group opener in Zagreb at the beginning of September.

The Blues have taken ten points from their last four games to ensure top spot in Group E, affording Graham Potter the chance to rest some players ahead of a huge game against Arsenal at the weekend.

Following Saturday’s 4-1 mauling at Brighton, however, Chelsea could do with a morale-boosting win on Wednesday night, even if there is nothing riding on the result.

Dinamo Zagreb, on the other hand, have nosedived since their shock opening day win against Chelsea.

The Croatian side have picked up a solitary point in their last four games, losing their two away games in the competition to date.

Dinamo Zagreb also lost in the Croatian league for the first time at the weekend, going down to a 1-0 defeat at Osijek.

A wounded and weakened Chelsea side should have no problems wrapping up the group stages with a comfortable win.

Armando Broja to Score Anytime

Armando Broja has been limited to substitute appearances since returning to Chelsea from a loan spell at Southampton last season.

The Albanian forward has made just one start in all competitions this season, coming off the bench on 12 different occasions.

He is scored one goal so far this season, putting the seal on a comfortable 3-0 win over Wolves last month.

Broja scored nine goals in 38 games for Southampton last season but is unlikely to match those figures unless he starts regularly for Chelsea.

That is also unlikely, but he should start on Wednesday night and can score against a Dinamo Zagreb side that fell apart against AC Milan last time out.

8pm: Man City v Sevilla

BT Sport 3

Man City -2

Sevilla, quite simply, have bigger fish to fry than a dead rubber against Manchester City.

The Spanish side shockingly find themselves in the relegation zone of La Liga after 12 games and will doubtlessly rest players ahead of their upcoming derby against high-flying Real Betis at the weekend.

Sevilla have at least shown some improvement in the Champions League since their opening day 4-0 defeat at home to City, picking up four points from their last two games, including an impressive draw in Dortmund.

Their 3-0 win over Copenhagen last time out sealed their place in the Europa League and they can now be hammered into submission by a ruthless City machine in peace.

With all places finalised, there is nothing to play for in Group G on the final night of group stage action.

City are also likely to rest players on Wednesday, but they still should have enough to blow Sevilla away yet again.

Both Teams to Score? No

With just one goal conceded in five games, City have the best defensive record in the Champions League this season ahead of Bayern Munich, who have conceded two goals in the competition.

Only Borussia Dortmund and the irrepressible Jude Bellingham have managed to breach the City defence in Europe this season and this Sevilla side are unlikely to become the second.

Sevilla have scored just 11 goals in 12 league games this season and have drawn a blank in five games in all competitions.

Considering they are likely to be even weaker than usual, that should rise to six games on Wednesday night.

Julian Alvarez to Score Anytime

Julian Alvarez’s first season in a Manchester City shirt has been restricted by the goalscoring brilliance of Erling Haaland.

It has just not been possible for the Argentine to sustain any significant run in the City team when Haaland has been scoring as he has.

However, he is likely to play from the start on Wednesday, considering Haaland’s recent injury and the fact that this game means nothing.

Alvarez has already scored four goals for City, including one in the Champions League, and he should get plenty of chances in a game that City will likely dominate from start to finish.
