Champions League latest - Ferdinand 4/7 To Leave United

With the Champions League returning this mid week William Hill have released a number of specials including Manchester United's clash with Braga priced at 15/8 to be the highest scoring match involving an English team.

Ajax Vs Manchester City is 9/4, Arsenal Vs Schalke is 5/2 and Chelsea's trip to Ukraine to face Shahktar Donetsk is 4/1.

Manchester United are even money to top score out of the English sides this week despite only scoring three goals so far.

Manchester City are 5/2 to score the most, Arsenal are 10/3 and Chelsea are 6/1.

Celtic face an unenviable trip to Barcelona on Tuesday night and are 25/1 to win the game. Barcelona are 1/12 and will be lead by the unstoppable Lionel Messi. Celtic are odds on at 1/3 to not score in Spain despite the Catalan giants lacking fit centre backs at present and conceding four at the weekend in a 5-4 victory at Deportive.

Barcelona are odds on at 17/20 to net four or more goals against the Scottish champions. Messi is 9/2 to hit a hat trick whilst team mate Andres Iniesta is 5/2 to score in a Barcelona win.

"It is likely to be backs against the walls for Celtic on Tuesday night trying to keep Messi, Villa, Pedro, Sanchez, Iniesta and Co quiet but with a lack of centre backs fit for Barca, a goal could be achievable," said William Hill spokesman Mark Young.

Fergie Set To Mirk Ferdinand In Contract Dispute

Rio Ferdinand's Manchester United career looks like it could be coming to an end, with a dispute with his manager not fully resolved and a contract coming to the end at the close of the season. William Hill are offering 4/7 that the Manchester United stalwart has left the club by the first day of next season (5/4 that he is still there).

"Rio has been a magnificent servant for Manchester United but his time looks as though at the club is coming to an end," said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.
