Manchester City v Villarreal
Napoli v Bayern Munich
Manchester City are finding life difficult in the Champions League with a draw and a defeat leaving them in need of victory at home to Villarreal. Another impressive win in the Premier League, this time by four goals to one at the expense of Aston Villa, sees them topping the Premier League. However, they were comprehensively defeated 2-0 by Bayern Munich in their last champions league game and anything less than victory here will leave their challenge hanging by a thread. Group leaders Bayern Munich travel to Napoli.
CSKA Moscow v Trabzonspor
Lille v Inter Milan
Inter Milan’s 3-2 win at CSKA Moscow leaves Group B wide open. Claudio Ranieri continued his winning start as Milan boss at the Luzhniki Stadium with goals by Lucio, Pazzini and Zarate. They now travel to Lille. Trabzonspur, 1-0 winners over Milan in their opening fixture, now look to upset the Russians. Gustavo Colman’s 75th minute penalty kept Trabzonpor at the top of Group B as they drew 1-1 with Lille.
Basle v Benfica
CS Otelul Galati v Manchester United
Manchester United were almost shocked at home by Basle in a pulsating 3-3 draw at Old Trafford and will be looking to step up their challenge with a win at CS Otelul Galati. Only a last minute goal by Ashley Young saved United from an embarrassing home defeat and they will be looking for a far better defensive display here. Group leaders Benfica can cement their place in the table if they defeat Basle.
Dinamo Zagreb v Ajax
Real Madrid v Lyon
Real Madrid have recorded two victories and go into their home game against Lyon full of confidence. Jose Mourinho’s men were very impressive in defeating Ajax 3-0 at the Bernabeu with goals by Ronaldo, Kaka and Benzema. Dinamo Zagreb welcome Ajax in the other group match.
