Javier Hernández may be struggling to dislodge Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie, but the Mexican has seized his rare chances this season. The 24-year-old has scored four goals in his last three appearances, and the Tipster’s opening bet is Hernández to score at any time against Braga at 21/10.
There have been over 2.5 goals in United’s last six matches in all competitions, including their 3-2 win against Braga at Old Trafford. Meanwhile, there has been at least three goals in four of Braga’s five most recent games. The Tipster reckons over 2.5 goals between Braga and United is a great bet at 4/5.
By Roberto Mancini’s own admission, City need to beat Ajax if they harbour any hopes of reaching the knockout stage this season in Europe. The Citizens have won their last two matches at the Etihad Stadium without conceding, and The Tipster is backing City to beat Ajax to nil at tempting odds of 3/1.
Arsenal’s promising start to the season has come to a shuddering halt in recent weeks. The Gunners have won just one game (in normal time) in their last five attempts, including a loss to Schalke at The Emirates. Sorry Gunners fans, but The Tipster is backing Schalke to beat Arsenal in Germany at 8/11.
Chelsea have been unconvincing in the Champions League this season. The Blues were 4-1 winners against Nordjaelland but could only draw 2-2 at home with Juventus, while they were beaten 2-1 by Shakhtar Donetsk last time out. With Roberto Di Matteo’s men winless (in normal time) in their last two games at Stamford Bridge, the Tipster’s long shot is Chelsea and Shakhtar to draw at 5/2.
