A couple of thoughts on the midweek Champions league fixtures and I was surprised at the initial price on Real Madrid to beat Man city and I'm even more so now. Real Madrid have been backed into as short as 4/7 in places a la Everton last night and massively over rated here IMO. I have them down at only slight odds-on on my tissue
With the potency of Man City on the counter attack and as vulnerable as both the big two in Spain are when teams actually get at their defences, I can see goals for City in this one if they don't adopt too defensive an approach. I expect Tevez to give Ramos and Pepe a Torrid time and Skybet have the latter at 2/1 to be booked which looks good value. Tevez is best priced 3/1 to net while it's 18/1 for him to bag a brace when trying to impress a potential future employer. 13/19 with with Pinnacle Sports on the over 2.5 goals looks the best bet for me here.

Chelsea will look to kick off their Champions League defence by taking on one of this year's dark horses in Juventus. Again there looks to be value in opposing the home side who are priced a little on the skinny side at 6/5. It's 4/5 with Pinnacle on the asian handicap +0.5 for Juventus, who should have Andrea Pirlo, arguably the player of the Euros, pulling the strings and watch out for the Italian maestro in and around the box, especially from set plays. He looks very big at 8/1 to net for Juventus.
