Expert football analyst Andy Gray gives Paddy Power his betting tips on tonight’s Champions League matches
Man City v Dortmund, 7.45pm, Live Sky Sports 2
A huge game for the Citizens as they know they can’t afford to drop any home points after that 3-2 loss to Real Madrid at the Bernabeu. Dortmund had a 5-0 win at the weekend against Mönchengladbach and will be a big test for the Premier League champions.
City will need to win if they want to keep their qualification hopes alive and I fancy them to do so. They should have shut up shop against Real Madrid when they were 2-1 up with five minutes left but they’ll need to get it right on Wednesday.
I fancy both teams to score at 4/7 with City coming out on top in the end at 5/6.
Arsenal v Olympiakos, 7.45pm, Live Sky Sports 4
Arsenal will be looking to get qualification to the next stage done and dusted early. A good win against Montpellier away in the first game has set them up nicely and they’ll want another three points here. I expect them to be too strong for Olympiakos at 4/11.
But Olympiakos are no pushovers. They’ve started very strongly in the Greek Super League winning the first five matches and scoring 13 goals and conceded just three. They’re top of the table there but traditionally Greek sides don’t travel very well.
They’re a different proposition in their own backyard but they face a stiffer test here against an Arsenal side who are scoring well now and are full of invention.
