Liverpool 20:00 Ajax

We’re surprised to see Liverpool trading at such short odds given their relative woes this season. Jurgen Klopp will potentially look to reinvent the team based on that 4-1 hammering in Naples, although Ajax have started the season like a train and outplayed Rangers last week when winning 4-0. Back the visitors to keep this encounter close at Anfield.

BEST BET: Ajax + 1.5

Sporting Lisbon 17:45 Tottenham Hotspur

Antonio Conte is making Tottenham Hotspur difficult to beat and we’re expecting a low-scoring clash in the Portuguese capital. After beating Marseille 2-0 in their opener, the London side will be looking for another clean sheet against a Sporting team who opened with a 3-0 victory in Frankfurt. Ultimately, a draw would keep both teams in a strong position to qualify and we’ll go for two goals or less.

BEST BET: Under 2.5 Goals

Rangers 20:00 Napoli

Giovanni van Bronckhorst admitted that his Rangers team simply weren’t up to scratch when getting hammered 4-0 by Ajax last week. Having beaten PSV over two legs, they were found wanting in their Champions League group opener and Napoli look like difficult opponents in this one. The visitors put Liverpool to the sword last week and a repeat of that performance level will surely be enough to get the job done in Scotland.

BEST BET: Napoli to win

Chelsea 20:00 FC Red Bull Salzburg

Graham Potter will have had a few days to work with his Chelsea squad and perhaps we will see a solid performance from the Blues who will aim to build from the back. We could see Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang make his debut for the London side, although it will be all about making sure of the win after a surprise reverse in Zagreb last week. Expect Salzburg to be given few chances.

BEST BET: Chelsea + BTTS No

Shakhtar Donetsk 17:45 Celtic

We’re surprised to see Shakhtar trading at such a big price to claim a victory here. While there are obvious complications for the team having to play home matches in Poland, we can be confident they will acquit themselves well after a 4-1 victory away to Leipzig. Celtic lost their opener 3-0 to Real Madrid and we’re happy to oppose them when they take to unfamiliar surroundings.

BEST BET: Shakhtar Donetsk to win

Manchester City 20:00 Borussia Dortmund

Manchester City opened their Champions League account with a 4-0 win away to Sevilla and we’re expecting a similar scoreline when they clash with Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday. Erling Haaland will come up against his former club and the Norwegian might show no mercy against a visiting side who served up a disappointing performance at the weekend and might struggle to live with the intensity here.

BEST BET: Manchester City -2.5
