Sarri and Guardiola are good value to lead their respective sides to the knockout stages whilst Mourinho’s Spurs could get amongst the goals
The Champions League returns for the fifth matchday on Tuesday night and it could prove pivotal as teams fight for their place in the knockout stages.
Three teams have already qualified for the last 16 and more will book their place this week. There are eight fixtures on Tuesday night and our tipster has taken a look at three of the games to come up with a treble that pays out at over 8/1 (9.0) with bet365.
Even with Cristiano Ronaldo perhaps not at 100 per cent, Juventus should have few problems sealing first place in Group D with victory over Atletico Madrid.
bet365 make them 13/10 (2.30) to take the points and, considering they have won their last eight home games in all competitions, they should be able to see off an Atletico side on a poor run.
Indeed, Diego Simeone’s men have tasted victory just once in their last five games and have not won any of their last five away fixtures in all competitions.
Like Juventus, Manchester City are just three points from claiming top spot in their group and there is little to suggest Pep Guardiola’s side won’t record a convincing win.
It is Evens (2.0) that Man City win with a -2 handicap, and that is a bet that would have landed in each of the last three meetings between the sides across the last two seasons.
As well, the hosts have scored 31 goals in 10 games at the Etihad Stadium this term whilst Shakhtar have lost two of their last three away matches.
Although it is early days, Jose Mourinho appears to have somewhat revitalised Spurs after their 3-2 win over West Ham on Saturday and they will hope to continue that good form into Tuesday night.
Their final two Champions League exploits under Mauricio Pochettino saw them plunder a total of nine goals against Red Star Belgrade, taking them to 13 goals in the group stage.
They are priced at 11/10 (2.10) to score over 2.5 goals against Olympiakos and are in a strong position to do so against an Olympiakos side that has shipped 10 goals in the Champions League this season.
