Champions League - Football: Wednesday preview

It's already matchday four in the Champions League as the congested pre-World Cup club action continues in midweek.

Amid eight games on Wednesday, Rangers host Liverpool in the second all-British affair in Group A, Tottenham entertain Eintracht Frankfurt in Group D, and there's another mouth-watering Group C showdown between Barcelona and Inter Milan.

Liverpool eye Ibrox win

OddsRangers 7/1, Draw 4/1, Liverpool 4/11

Liverpool's poor start to the Premier League season continued on Sunday when they went down 3-2 at Arsenal but they're in a much better position in the Champions League with two wins from three so far.

Last Tuesday's comfortable 2-0 success at home against Rangers means the Reds are big favourites to make it nine points from a possible 12 in Group A and a win would leave Jurgen Klopp's men well on course to make the knockout stages again.

Rangers were well beaten at Anfield and but for an inspired goalkeeping performance from Allan McGregor, it would have been a much more comfortable outcome for the home side.

Taking on the Scottish champions, who won 4-0 at home on Saturday against St Mirren in the SPFL, at what should be a hostile Ibrox could make things more difficult for the English side, but in all likelihood another victory for Klopp's men is on the cards.

The other game in the group sees in-form Napoli, who hammered Ajax 6-1 in Amsterdam last week to make it three wins from three for them in Europe so far, host the Dutch side in a 17:45 kick-off. This should go the way of the freescoring Italians once again, who are also top in Serie A after a 4-1 win at Cremonese at the weekend.

Napoli are 4/7 to win, Ajax are 4/1 and a draw is 7/2.

Spurs hoping to follow up Brighton win

OddsTottenham 1/2, Draw 7/2, Eintracht Frankfurt 5/1

Spurs' start to the season has been fairly impressive as Antonio Conte's side sit third in the Premier League, just four points behind leaders Arsenal, but they have not had things all their own way in Europe so far.

Ahead of their home Group D clash with Eintracht Frankfurt, Tottenham are second with four points from a possible nine on the board so a victory against the Bundesliga outfit will be sought as they look to solidify their position amongst the top two.

After falling to their first defeat in the league against the Gunners recently, Spurs were then held to a goalless draw in the corresponding Group D fixture in Germany last week but they got back to winning ways in the top-flight by beating Brighton and they are now expected to follow up with a home win over Eintracht, on offer at 1/2.

In the other match in the group, leaders Sporting Lisbon entertain Marseille. Sporting are 13/10 to win, a draw is 12/5 and a Marseille victory is 2/1.

Barca need something off Inter

OddsBarcelona 2/5, Draw 4/1, Inter Milan 25/4

Group C remains fascinating as Barca, Inter and Bayern Munich all chase qualification to the knockout stages. German giants Bayern are in the driving seat with three wins from three, while Inter have two wins on the board and Barca have just the solitary victory so far.

The Catalans know they must try and get something off Inter in midweek or progress to the last-16 will be difficult. The La Liga side are 2/5 to win, a draw is 4/1 and an Inter win is 25/4.

Bayern, who are 1/6 to win on Wednesday and 6/1 to win the Champions League outright this season, go to Viktoria Plzen in the other group clash.

Brugge after four from four

Elsewhere in the Champions League on Wednesday, Club Brugge will be aiming to maintain their stunning start to life in Group B when they go to Atletico Madrid. The Belgian side have won their first three games to take control of the group, while Atleti are bottom with just one win from three games so far.

Atleti are 2/5 to win, another Club Brugge victory is 15/2 and the draw is 10/3.

Bayer Leverkusen, who are currently third in the group, are 21/20 to beat Porto in the other match. The Portuguese outfit are 5/2 to win and the draw is 13/5.
