The Champions League will pull its curtains down for the year, after the final group games of round 6 have been played this week. Most of the group winners have been determined, but there are still a few uncertainties that could lead to shifts in position. Use this opportunity to bet on football of the highest calibre, because you won’t see any Champions League action until February, next year.
Bayern Munich v PSG – H 3/2 (2.50) D 14/5 (3.79) A 7/4 (2.75)
Five-time Champions League winners Bayern Munich will go head to head with Europe’s “nouveau riche” – PSG. The French side went all out last summer when they broke the bank to sign Neymar from Barcelona for a world record EUR 222 million, while also adding Mbappe from domestic rivals AS Monaco on an initial one-year loan with a view to acquire him permanently next summer for a rumoured EUR 180 million.

And the new recruits seem to have worked out for them, as they’ve claimed 5 wins in 5 games so far. Bayern have also ensured their progression to the knockout phase, which means this match will be a contest for bragging rights in Group B. Since the Allianz Arena will stage this great spectacle, we reckon PSG won’t be able to put on their usual performance. We’d place a draw on this game with online sportsbooks in Germany as the group winners have already been decided.
Chelsea v Atletico Madrid – H 11/10 (2.10) D 5/2 (3.50) A 11/4 (3.75)
Unlike Group B which has already been decided, Group C could still see clubs shift spots. Chelsea sit atop of the group with 10 points and have essentially ensured their spot in next year’s rounds of the Champions League, while second-placed AS Roma have accumulated 2 points less from 5 games so far.
Stamford Bridge is known to be a tough ground to crack for visiting sides, so we’re doubtful Diego Simeone’s men will have the capacity to clinch a positive result tonight. Especially, since Atletico Madrid have been playing under par this season, both domestically and in the Champions League – they’re currently in 3rd position with only 6 points. Online betting sites in Spain rank them as underdogs for this encounter, which Chelsea have been dealt surprisingly high odds, making this a hot betting opportunity for regular betting fans.
Manchester United v CSKA Moscow – H 4/9 (1.44) D 15/4 (4.75) A 7/1 (8.00)

In round 4, Man United were on course to seal their place in the knockout phase, however they’ve unsuspectingly suffered a last-minute loss to Basel away. In tonight’s match against CSKA Moscow at Old Trafford, Jose Mourinho’s men will have to put on a good show and at least secure a draw, which would see them claim 13 points – enough for further progression.
If they were to lose to the Russian side tonight, Man United would potentially be eliminated from Europe’s elite competition, depending on the outcome of the game between Benfica and Basel. But to be fair, we think the Red Devils were simply unlike last time, and tonight things will be different as they’ll be playing in front of their fervent home crowd. So a victory seems to be on the cards for this one.
