Tuesday's Champions League previews

CFR Cluj v Manchester United

19:45 - live on ITV1

Despite Sir Alex Ferguson stating that he is wary of the threat from Romanian Champions CFR Cluj, he has decided to leave his most experienced Champions League players back in Manchester. Michael Carrick, Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes and Antonio Valencia will all be absent from Tuesday night's kick-off and the squad will be expected to bounce back from their 3-2 Premier League home defeat at the hands of Tottenham Hotspur.

The Romanian outfit caused a shock on Matchday One by beating Braga 2-0 in Portugal, and they will be hoping that the defensive errors present against Spurs are repeated in Romania. Rio Ferdinand and Jonny Evans played together for only the second time this season on Saturday and it looked as though it will take some time before they will be comfortable without Nemanja Vidic.

Our enhanced wincast offer on this game is for new signing Robin van Persie to score in a United victory. We have pushed out the originally 6/4 price to a tempting 2/1.

United go into game as the 4/6 favourites away from home and that leaves a few tempting bets available on the hosts. Cluj are 11/4 Draw No Bet and Under 2.5 goals is a must at 10/11.


Nordsjaelland  v Chelsea

19:45 - live on Sky Sports 2

In their Group E opener Chelsea let slip a 2-nil lead at Stamford Bridge and eventually were happy to settle for a 2-2 draw with Italian champions Juventus. That draw makes the trip to Copenhagen that little bit more crucial and all three points are a must for the defending champions. On Saturday Chelsea looked strong at the Emirates, and were deserving 2-1 winners. That win kept intact their unbeaten start to the Premier League season and extended their lead at the top of the table.

The Danish Superliga champions FC Nordsjaelland lost their opener 2-0 to group leaders Shakhtar Donestsk in Ukraine and will want to get something out of this game, or else they will be staring at an early exit from the Champions League.

Fernando Torres was on target against Arsenal and claimed his third goal this season. For the enhanced wincast offer we have enhanced the price of an anytime Torres goal in a Chelsea win from Even Money to 6/4. The Spanish international seems content under the guidance of Roberto Di Matteo. With Didier Drogba out of the fray, the number 9 has taken up the mantel of the target man and seems to be getting the rewards for his hard work. If Chelsea win, Fernando is likely to be on the scoresheet.

There isn't too much value other than an accumulator bet on the 4/11 available on the West Londoners. However the 10/11 on offer about a Chelsea clean sheet or the 23/20 for The Blues to win to nil are where my money would go in this one.
