BORUSSIA DORTMUND V NEWCASTLE

⭐ STARSPORTS.BET MATCH MARKETS ⭐

The feast of mid-week fun kicks off on Tuesday teatime when Borussia Dortmund host Newcastle in a crunch game for both sides, who are level on four points each in Group F.

Dortmund, who will become only the second German team to play 150 Champions League games, were woeful in their 4-0 defeat at the hands of a Harry Kane-inspired Bayern Munich on Thursday.

That was a far cry from their excellent performance in their 1-0 win at St James’ Park and the famous Yellow Wall will be demanding an immediate reaction.

Newcastle earned plenty of plaudits for their character-laden display in beating Arsenal on Saturday, however that victory came at a cost with Dan Burn and Jacob Murphy taking their spaces in an already-bloated treatment room.

The Magpies made the trip to Germany with only 16 senior players in tow, including three goalkeepers, so it looks a tall order to end Dortmund’s six-match unbeaten Champions League home run.

Given Newcastle’s injury crisis, Dortmund to win at 13/8 with starsports.bet and complete the double over Eddie Howe’s side is tempting.

Newcastle have not scored a Champions League away goal since 2003 and managed only one shot on target in their 0-0 draw at AC Milan on Matchday One.

I would expect Howe to once again adopt a cautious approach and a draw would be a decent result for the visitors.

Therefore, I will be doubling up Dortmund to win and under 2.5 goals at odds of around

COPENHAGEN V MANCHESTER UNITED

⭐ STARSPORTS.BET MATCH MARKETS ⭐

It promises to be another nail-biting night for Manchester United fans as they head to Copenhagen on Wednesday for a potentially season-defining night.

With a trip to Istanbul to face Galatasaray and a home game against runaway group leaders Bayern Munich still to come, this is a must-win for Erik Ten Hag’s side in terms of reaching the last 16.

It has been a dismal European campaign for United so far with the far from convincing 1-0 home victory over Copenhagen the only points they have managed to put on the board.

The Danish champions will still be smarting from that undeserved defeat, giving them extra fuel to stage a repeat of their historic home victory over the Red Devils back in 2006.

While United eased some of the pressure on Ten Hag by beating Fulham 1-0 thanks to Bruno Fernandes’s last-gasp goal on Saturday they were once again far from impressive so it is hard to foresee anything other than another tense encounter.

Copenhagen have taken just one point from their three games so need to win just as much as their visitors to stand any chance of playing European football beyond December.

That should result in a very open game, as the reverse meeting was despite being settled by the odd-goal.

Rasmus Hojlund’s wait for a first Premier league goal continues and the 20-year-old Dane will be hoping for some home comforts. Hojlund is 11/8 to score at any time, but I am more taken by Bruno Fernandes to score any time at

Copenhagen will play on the front foot and this may suit the men from Old Trafford so my build-a-bet for this game is United to win, over 2.5 goals and captain Fernandes to come up with another important goal at around 4/1 with starsports.bet

ARSENAL V SEVILLE

⭐ STARSPORTS.BET MATCH MARKETS ⭐

After seeing their unbeaten start to the Premier league season brought to an abrupt end in controversial circumstances Arsenal will be looking to get back on track at home to Seville.

Victory for Mikel Arteta’s men will put them within touching distance of the knockout stages and they are heavy favourites to claim all three points against a Seville side who are bad travellers in Europe.

Los Palanganas are without a win in their last eight away games in continental competition, but have drawn six of those and the 2-1 defeat at home to Arsenal is their only defeat in their last seven games.

The visitors have not lost by more than goal in any match this season and held Manchester City to a 1-1 draw in the European Super Cup so Seville +2 on the handicap at

with starsports.bet looks decent value.

Seville adopted the physical approach in the reverse fixture, conceding almost twice as many fouls as Arsenal. Everyone’s favourite pantomime villain Sergio Ramos has collected an amazing 151 yellow cards over the course of his club career, including three in seven games this season.

Ramos to be shown a card is 7/4 with starsports.bet
