|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Man Utd||Recent Form|
Key Stat: United have lost only three of their last 22 European matches
Expert Verdict: The return of Cristiano Ronaldo to Old Trafford will grab all of the headlines but Manchester United should be able to hold their own against Juventus. Confidence will have been restored by the manner of the performance in the 2-2 draw at Chelsea and United remain a tough nut to crack in European home encounters.
REFEREE:Milorad Mazic STADIUM: Old Trafford
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Shakhtar||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Shakhtar have not kept a clean sheet in their last six league matches
Expert Verdict: Manchester City lost away to Shakhtar in last season's Champions League, but on that occasion Pep Guardiola rested star players ahead of the more important Manchester derby. City's minds should be focused on this clash, particularly after losing to Lyon on matchday one, and Guardiola can be rewarded with maximum points.
Recommendation: Man City
REFEREE:Carlos del Cerro Grande STADIUM: Metalist Stadium
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Norwich||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Norwich and Villa have been level at half-time nine times, the joint highest in the Championship
Expert Verdict: In-form Norwich have won five of their last seven Sky Bet Championship matches, all by a single goal, and can extend that sequence of narrow successes against Aston Villa at Carrow Road. Norwich find themselves in the playoff places following Saturday’s 2-1 victory at Nottingham Forest, their eighth match of 13 this term to have been settled by the odd goal.
Recommendation: Norwich to win 1-0
REFEREE:Simon Hooper STADIUM: Carrow Road
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at QPR||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Both teams have scored in all but one of Wednesday’s 13 fixtures
Expert Verdict: Wednesday’s only three wins since the end of August have been on their travels which gives them a decent chance at QPR. Rangers have improved after a dismal start but both these sides concede too many goals. Both teams have scored in all but one of Wednesday’s 13 fixtures.
Recommendation: Both teams to score
REFEREE:John Brooks STADIUM: Loftus Road Stadium
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Swansea||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Swansea have failed to score in seven of their last 11
Expert Verdict: It’s just not happening for Swansea, who have failed to score in seven of their last 11 and can’t sustain any sort of a challenge. Blackburn are unbeaten against bottom-half opponents and Saturday’s 2-1 win against Leeds must have sent their self-belief through the roof.
REFEREE:Geoff Eltringham STADIUM: Liberty Stadium
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Birmingham||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Lukas Jutkiewicz has scored five goals in his last two at St Andrew's
Expert Verdict: Birmingham's Lukas Jutkiewicz has scored five goals in his last two at St Andrew's and is worth betting to find the net. Jutkiewicz, who set up Che Adams for his winner at Stoke on Saturday, is in good form, rather like his club. Reading beat Millwall 3-1 at the weekend but the pressure on boss Paul Clement is still immense.
Recommendation: L Jutkiewicz first goalscorer
REFEREE:Tony Harrington STADIUM: St. Andrew's Stadium
