Champions League back as Skybet report free bets offer on midweek action
The final round of the Champions League gets under way on Tuesday with seven precious spaces in the knockout stages still up for grabs as Skybet offer a completley free £10 bet on any game.
Only Arsenal of the four English clubs have secured their spot in the last 16, with Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester all still sweating on making it through.
Manchester City face the hardest task in order to make it through after their 2-1 defeat at the hands of Napoli last month severely damaging their hopes of qualifying for the next round for the first time in their history.
Roberto Mancini’s men go up against German giants Bayern Munich at the Etihad Stadium knowing that even a win against the team that taught them a harsh lesson the last time they met in Germany, they will still be banking on bottom of the group side Villarreal taking points off of Napoli.
Manchester United meanwhile have been uncharacteristically out of form in the Champions League this season, shipping plenty of goals in the process as they look to ensure they make it through, recording damaging draws against Basel and Benfica to dent their chances.
Top spot looks out of their grasp with Benfica able to grab 1st with a win over point-less Otelul Galati, while Sir Alex Ferguson’s side know a win over Basel will at the very least see them through in second.
Chelsea find themselves in a similar position, with a win against Valencia enough to put them through to the knockout stages. Andre Villas-Boas’ men have gone through a tough time in the Premier League recently but appear to have got over the worst of their form on the domestic front, and will look to go one better than the draw they picked up in Spain.
Elsewhere Ajax can secure second place in Group D, although to do so they may have to ensure maximum points against the mighty Real Madrid, while Trabzonspor, Lille, and CSKA Moscow are all vying for the second spot behind Inter Milan in group B, with Moscow going up against the Italian giants.
AC Milan and Barcelona have already secured both qualifying spots in Group H to put Viktoria Plzen and FC BATE out of the competition, while Porto, Zenit St Petersburg and Apoel, the surprise outfit of the competition so far all seperated by just two points with both spaces in the final 16 up for grabs in Group G.
