Inter Milan v FC Porto – Click here to bet
Inter came 2nd in their group with 3 victories, a draw and 2 losses. They went down 2-0 at home to Bayern Munich, but won the other two home games, 1-0 against Barcelona and 4-0 against Plzen. They are undefeated in their last 5 matches in all competitions and beat Udinese 3-1 at home on the weekend.
FC Porto started their group stage with 2 losses, but stormed through to top the group with 4 successive victories. Looking at their away form in the group stages they went down 2-1 at Atletico Madrid, but beat Bayer Leverkusen 3-0 on the road and Club Brugge 4-0. They have won their last 10 matches in all competitions and in the League beat Rio Ave 1-0 at home on the weekend.
There is no recent head-to-head form between these sides.
Inter start firm favourites here at 15/20, but Porto are in great form and I think they can take at least a point out of this one.
Suggested Bet: Handicap, Porto +0.5 goals at 11/10

RB Leipzig v Manchester City – Click here to bet
Leipzig finished 2nd in their group thanks to a storming run which saw them win their last 4 games. As far as home form goes they were hammered 4-1 at home by Shakhtar Donetsk, but then beat Celtic 3-1 and Real Madrid 3-2. They beat Wolfsburg 3-0 in the League on Saturday breaking a run of 2 League matches without a victory.
Manchester City topped their group with 4 wins and 2 draws, both of those draws came on the road against Dortmund and Copenhagen with both matches finishing goalless. They had opened their campaign with a 4-0 away win over Sevilla.
Manchester City were stunned by a late Nottingham equaliser over the weekend and the game finished 1-1.
These sides met in the group stages of the Champions League last season, Manchester City winning 6-3 at home, but Leipzig winning 2-1 when they hosted City.
Manchester City are currently priced at 8/10 favourites for the game, but this will be no easy win for them and I am leaning towards the goal markets here as City have looked a bit suspect at the back and I think we could goal at both ends. Both teams to score is a bit short for me at 7/10 and I am going over 3.5 goals in this one.
Suggested Bet: Over 3.5 goals at 33/20
