An injury-time winner from Cristiano Ronaldo papered over the cracks of a disappointing performance in their last Champions League game, but Manchester United still head the Group F betting despite sitting in 3rd spot as Atalanta visit Old Trafford.
The Bergamo side, who are renowned for their attacking style, are 10/3 to heap more pressure on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in a game priced at 1/2 to see Over 2.5 goals.
Chelsea head into their clash against Malmo in 2nd place in Group H after a 1-0 defeat against Juventus with the Turin club into 4/6 to top the section with the Blues at 5/4. At 1/10 to win at Stamford Bridge, the Blues are 9/4 to be the ‘Highest Scoring Team’ in the Champions League on Wednesday night.
bet365’s Steve Freeth said: “The holders have a great chance to get back on track against a Malmo defence that have conceded 7 in their first 2 games. That will be music to the ears of Romelu Lukaku who has failed to score for well over a month in a Chelsea shirt.”
