Champions League Matchday 2: Highlights and Preview

After a night of big wins and huge upsets, Champions League action continues from 17:00 and 19:45 GMT.

Last night we saw the fall of Chelsea, Arsenal, and Roma, whom all lost their Matchday 2 games respectively. True, it is still early and Chelsea has a win and a loss, but Arsenal is down two matches and Roma has a draw and a loss, which will make it very hard to get a spot in the next round. Tonight blazes forward with another eight matches across Europe and we cannot wait to see the outcomes and upsets after tonight.

Group A

Malmo (12.00) vs Real Madrid (1.25)

Malmo do not really have a chance, even with the home pitch advantage. Real are going to come in and play their game, which is just too strong for a team like Malmo to cope with. There is one thing working in favor of Malmo and that is the injuries to Gareth Bale, James Rodriguez and on defense Pepe and Sergio Ramos.

Prediction: 0-3 Real  

Group B

Manchester United (1.80) vs Wolfsburg (4.75)

United need to get a solid win here tonight at Old Trafford or they will be in the same position as Arsenal. According to legendary UK sportsbook, bet365 Sports, the odds are stacked against Wolfsburg, but a draw could be the smart bet here at 3.80.

Prediction: 2-1 United

Group C

Atletico Madrid (1.55) vs Benefica (7.50)

Madrid needs its very well paid new strikers to start doing something, as their lack-luster performances up until now have not satisfied. This is the perfect time for the home side to go up on the table with two wins and that is most-likely what will happen after 90 minutes.

Prediction: 3-1 Atletico

Group D

Borussia Monchengladbach (4.20) vs Manchester City (1.90)

Manchester City are down one loss and are missing a total of six essential players tonight. Captain Kompany, Clichy, Delph, Mangala and Nasri are all out for the visitors and the weight will be on the rest of the roster to bring home a win and save some face for Premier League teams in the Champions League this season.

Prediction: 1-2 Man. City

In addition to the highlights above, there are also matches between FC Astana (3.30) vs Galatasaray (2.40), CSKA Moscow (1.75) vs PSV (5.00), Juventus (1.85) vs Sevilla (4.75) and Shakhtar Donetsk (4.75) vs PSG (1.85).
