Champions League Acca – Tuesday 23rd October

We reach the midway point of the Champions League Group Stage thisweek with the third round of matches across the eight groups, eight games taking place on Tuesday and the same number tomorrow. Do check back in 24-hours for our latest Acca tip for Wednesday night’s games.

Tuesday sees both Manchester clubs in action with United facing a tough task at home to Juventus, who will have Cristiano Ronaldo available following a one game suspension against Young Boys. City travel to the Ukraine to take on Shalhtar Donetsk, a team who beat a weakened City team at this stage of the competition last year after City had already confirmed their qualification for the knockout phase.

Due to being unavailable for a week or so, I am writing this well in advance of the games, so I am unsure how my acca’s for the last couple of weeks have gone, although that nice treble a few Sunday’s ago does give me confidence that another win will be on the way shortly.

Here’s my tips for Tuesday’s Champions League accumulator.

Bet Analysis: Tuesday 23rd October

Young Boys v Valencia – Away Win

I was very impressed with how Valencia played when securing a 0-0 draw away to Manchester United in their last game. While they were still unable to score, an issue which has dogged them all season long, they controlled the game well from midfield and kept United away from their goal well. Young Boys have been thumped by both Juventus and Manchester United in their opening two games and while I can’t see Valencia grabbing lots of goals in this one, I feel that if they can score just the one, then that may well be enough to clinch a win and that will then throw this group wide open.

Ajax v Benfica – Home Win

I have been very impressed with Ajax in this tournament this season. They are going well domestically too, just a couple of points off PSV at the top of the Eredivisie, but it was the manner of their 1-1 draw in the Allianz Arena against Bayern Munich that was so impressive as they gave the German side, semi finalists last year, a real test. Benfica earned a fine win over AEK last time out, achieved with 10-men on the field, but Ajax are a better side than the Greek champions and for me, add home advantage to that and I can see the home side picking up what would be a vital win here.

Manchester United v Juventus – Away Win

Cristiano Ronaldo will return to Old Trafford, barring injury after his suspension was confirmed as just a single game (which he served in Juventus’ win over Young Boys last time out). United fans may be keen to see their former star back at Old Trafford but they know his presence hands Juventus a massive boost in a game that United really need to get something from. Juventus though have won every game in Serie A and the Champions League this season and their famed defence is as solid as ever, while Ronaldo adds a new dimension to their attack. Even in top form, this would be tough for United but as it stands, I think this will go the way of the Italians.

Shakhtar Donetsk v Man City – Away Win

Last season, Donetsk became the first team to beat Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City when they beat an under-strength City side 2-1 in the same stage of this competition. However, the team that faces them this week will be a much stronger City outfit and I think that doesn’t bode well for the home side, especially given the goals they have already shipped this season. Donetsk can score goals too however and I would expect them to find the net against City, however my concern is that City will simply counter attack on them and if they do, I can see them having a lot of joy. As such, even though this looks tough on paper, I am backing City to win this one relatively comfortably.
