Benfica to beat Otelul Galati @ 7/50
Benfica come into this game knowing that a home win over Group C whipping boys Otelul Galati will see them qualify top and as a result, avoid a last-16 clash with the likes of Real Madrid or Barcelona.
As such, the Portuguese giants will be determined to ensure that the creditable draws they earned home and away to last season’s finalists Manchester United count for something.
There should be plenty of room for optimism, too, with Otelul yet to earn a point in what has been a brief and all too forgettable campaign for the Romanian side.
Benfica possess plenty of firepower in their ranks with Paraguayan striker Oscar Cardozo already registering six goals in ten starts for Jorge Jesus’ men, who currently sit joint top in their domestic league.
With a touch of class in midfield courtesy of Pablo Aimar, there is little to suggest that Benfica winning at home is anything but a banker at odds of 3/25.
Lyon to beat Dinamo Zagreb @ 22/25
Going into their final group game against Dinamo Zagreb, Lyon need to win big and hope Ajax lose bigger in order to precipitate the seven-goal swing required to see them qualify in the runners-up spot behind Real Madrid.
While not an impossibility, Lyon will know that they can do much of the hard work themselves with a big win over a poor Dinamo Zagreb side.
The Croatians have looked out of their depth throughout this group stage and with nothing left to play for would be forgiven for going into the game with little in the way of motivation.
Dinamo have thus far conceded 15 goals in five games and could therefore be ideal sparring partners for a Lyon side in desperate need of the hitting the back of the net.
The French side come into the game off the back of a good scoring run, with six goals in their last two games.
They will be reliant on Lisandro Lopez and Bafetimbi Gomis, who have notched five and seven goals respectively this season, but should have more than enough to at least get the victory.
Manchester United to beat Basel @ 31/50
As Manchester United showed in their Premier League encounter with Aston Villa at the weekend, when the chips are down the Red Devils still find something in their locker to win the game, take the points and earn the plaudits.
While some United fans may be apprehensive about a trip to Switzerland and the prospect of a match against Basel, the truth is that there is plenty of room for optimism in Manchester.
After all, much has changed in the intervening weeks between the 3-3 draw between the sides at Old Trafford, with Basel losing manager Thorsten Fink to Hamburg and United continuing to enjoy an excellent run of form in the league.
United boss Sir Alex Ferguson will be eager to ensure no one takes their eye off the ball this time around against the Swiss.
The Red Devils may be without Dimitar Berbatov and Javier Hernandez for this crunch game but in Wayne Rooney they have a goalscorer of the highest calibre who is sure to cause problems for Basel.
And with players like Phil Jones chipping in with goals, a comfortable win is surely on the cards for Ferguson’s men.
