Champions League Tuesday Preview

The Champions League returns on Tuesday and all four groups could be decided with both Manchester City and Manchester United looking to book their places in the last 16.

In Group F, City will be through with a draw against Lyon and will seal first place with a win – the French side will be through if they win, and draw would also be enough if the other game ends in a draw.

Both Hoffenheim and Shakhtar still have a chance of progress, if they win.

Despite their recent struggles domestically – Manchester United will progress with victory of Young Boys, and if Valencia lose to Juventus, who only need a point to go through themselves.

Bayern Munich and Ajax will progress from group E with victories – Benfica must beat Bayern to have a chance of going through.

Roma and Real Madrid face each other in Group G – and both could go through. A win for either will seal the win, but CSKA losing would also finalise their places.

We run through every game including predictions from former England, Crystal Palace and Tottenham midfielder Andy Gray, our own Football Insider Graeme Bailey and BoyleSports’ Lawrence Lyons.
