Champions League - Football: Wednesday preview

Manchester City, Chelsea, Rangers and Celtic are all in Champions League action on a busy Wednesday night.

The four British teams play their second group matches in this year's competition in midweek, while defending champions Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain, Juventus and AC Milan also feature.

City, who are 9/4 to win the Champions League, will be aiming to make it two wins from two, while Chelsea, who now have Graham Potter in charge, need to respond to last week's defeat at Dinamo Zagreb.

Old Firm duo Rangers and Celtic also go in search of victories after they both lost their opening group fixtures in the competition.

Odds

Manchester City 2/11, Draw 13/2, Borussia Dortmund 12/1 

Erling Haaland has made a sensational start at Manchester City following his summer move from Borussia Dortmund and he gets an early chance to remind BVB what they're missing when the two sides meet at the Etihad in Group G.

The Norway international has struck 12 goals in just seven appearances for City so far and now he will be aiming to shoot down his former employers in Europe, for whom he hit 86 goals in 89 games during a goal-laden two-and-a-half-year spell.

City, who are 2/11 to win, started their Champions League campaign with an easy 4-0 victory at Sevilla, while Dortmund, who are 12/1 for victory, kicked off with a comfortable 3-0 home success over FC Copenhagen.

Pep Guardiola's side are unbeaten in all competitions and sit second in the Premier League table with four wins and two draws from their first six games while Dortmund have also won four of their first six Bundesliga games but have lost the other two, the second of which was a 3-0 reverse at RB Leipzig on Saturday.

Potter era begins at Chelsea

What

Chelsea v RB Salzburg

Where

Stamford Bridge, London

When

Odds

Chelsea 1/3, Draw 9/2, RB Salzburg 7/1

Chelsea appointed Graham Potter last week after sacking Thomas Tuchel in the wake of their 1-0 defeat to Dinamo Zagreb in their Champions League Group E opener.

The former Brighton boss takes charge for the first time when Austrian outfit Salzburg visit Stamford Bridge and he will be after a victory, available at 1/3, to get the Blues back on course to qualify out of a group also containing AC Milan.

Salzburg drew with the Italian giants 1-1 on matchday one and sit top in Austria with seven wins from eight so far, so Potter will be wary of Wednesday's opponents, who are 7/1 to win at Stamford Bridge.

Another stiff test for Gers

What

Rangers v Napoli

Where

Ibrox, Glasgow

Odds

Rangers 3/1, Draw 3/1, Napoli 4/5

Rangers' return to the Champions League group stage for the first time in 12 years started badly as they were thrashed 4-0 by Ajax on matchday one.

It doesn't get much easier for Giovanni van Bronckhorst's side with Napoli, who were impressive 4-1 winners over Liverpool last week, next up in Group A.

Another defeat for the Scottish side will leave them facing a huge fight to qualify for the knockout stage but Napoli will be confident of making it two wins out of two as Luciano Spalletti's men are top of Serie A after six games following an unbeaten start.

Rangers are 3/1 to bounce back from the heavy Ajax loss with a win, the draw in Glasgow is 3/1 and a Napoli win is available at 4/5.

Odds

Shakhtar Donetsk 11/5, Draw 5/2, Celtic 6/5 

After beating RB Leipzig 4-1 away from home in their Group F opener, Shakhtar are now looking to see off Celtic in Warsaw on matchday two.

The Ukrainian outfit picked up the superb win in Germany with Marian Shved scoring twice and they face a Celtic side who were outclassed in the second half last week, conceding three goals to go down to defending European champions Real Madrid at home.

Celtic are 6/5 to bounce back with a win, Shakhtar are 11/5 and the draw in Poland is 5/2.

The other game in the group sees Real, who are 9/1 for more outright Champions League glory this season, entertain RB Leipzig at 20:00 with Real 4/7 to start their defence with two wins.

Juve and PSG in Group F action

Elsewhere, Juventus host Benfica in Group F at 20:00 with the Italians, who lost last week to PSG, 6/5 to win, while PSG go to Maccabi Haifa, also for a 20:00 kick-off. The French champions are 1/6 to follow up with another victory and are 9/2 to win this season's competition.

In Manchester City's group, Sevilla go to Copenhagen (20:00) with the Spanish side 11/10 to come out on top, while Dinamo Zagreb will be aiming to prove their victory over Chelsea last time was not a one-off as they travel to AC Milan at 17:45. Milan are 1/4 to win in the San Siro, Dinamo Zagreb are 11/1.
