BetVictor Brand Ambassaor Michael Owen returns with his tips ahead of matchday 3 in the UEFA Champions League.
Manchester City to win -2
Manchester City v Olympiakos 4-0
Manchester City chalked up their second clean sheet in a row against Sheffield United at the weekend. This will be music to the ears of City fans who were beginning to question their sides back line. The more clean sheets you get, the more you grow in confidence, and I think the Citizens will make it three in a row against their Greek opponents with a comfortable win.
Liverpool to win and btts
Atalanta v Liverpool 1-2
Atalanta have been a joy to watch so far this season! They are a dangerous outfit, and with Liverpool’s frailties at the back just now, the Italians will fancy themselves to cause some problems. Despite conceding goals, Liverpool are finding a way to win at the moment. That’s the mark of champions, and I think whilst Atalanta will be a huge test, I fancy the Reds to come out on top.
Chelsea to win to nil
Chelsea v Rennes 2-0
Since their 3-3 draw at home to Southampton, Chelsea have gone 4 games on the bounce without conceding a goal. The Blues have certainly turned the corner after a sluggish start to the season, and I think they’ll come out on top at home to Rennes here.
Manchester United to win -1
Istanbul Basaksehir v Manchester United 0-2
Manchester United are possibly the toughest conundrum in football at the moment. They have been excellent in Europe, but just can’t find any rhythm in the league. Back on European duty, I think they can get another positive result. United seem like a side that are more suited to playing away from home and are at their best hitting on the counter-attack. Ole Gunnar Solkjaer will see this as the ideal opportunity to bounce back after the weekend defeat to Arsenal, and I think they will take the points home to Old Trafford.
