Barcelona vs Bayern Munich

Group E starts with a bang as Barcelona host Bayern Munich in a heavyweight clash that wouldn't look out of place in the final itself.

Since drawing at Borussia Monchengladbach on the opening day of the Bundesliga season, Bayern have dominated everyone in their path, winning their last three league games by a combined margin of 12-3, including a 4-1 win at Leipzig last weekend.

Barcelona are in decent form themselves with two wins and a draw from their three La Liga games. Memphis Depay in particular has really taken to life at the Camp Nou with two goals in his last two games.

However, they haven't played since 29th August and the worry is they might start slow against red-hot Bayern, just as they did when they hosted the Germans last year and found themselves 4-1 down after just 31 minutes, ultimately losing 8-2!

That win was Bayern's second in their last three trips to Camp Nou and they have lost just two out of 11 matches against their illustrious opponents - making a Bayern bet at even money a very attractive proposition.

However, with a total of 25 goals scored in the last five meetings between these two sides, Bayern to win and over 2.5 goals gets our vote at 6/4.

Young Boys vs Manchester United

Red Devils fans who doubted they would ever see Cristiano Ronaldo's iconic goal celebration again must have been pinching themselves as the Portuguese ace netted twice in his latest home debut against Newcastle.

The Champions League's all-time record goalscorer is in the United squad as they start their latest campaign with a trip to Switzerland, and few would bet against him adding to that tally against Young Boys.

The Red Devils are averaging almost three goals a game this season, so with or without the prodigal son it looks like being a long night for Young Boys. 

United are priced up at 4/11 to win and 10/11 for a Red Devils victory and over 2.5 goals.

Villarreal vs Atalanta

The Yellow Submarine have sailed into the Champions League group stage for the first time since 2011, and Europa League specialist Unai Emery will be keen to show he's not a one-trick pony.

The hosts have the ideal opportunity to start in style against an Atalanta side who have won one, lost one and drawn one this season. The problem is, they seem to have forgotten how to win themselves, drawing all four of their games in all competitions.

Arnaut Danjuma, Villarreal, Champions League

Two of those draws were creditable ones against Chelsea in the Super Cup and last time out at Atletico Madrid. But when the onus was on them to take the initiative against lesser sides, Villarreal were found wanting, drawing 0-0 at home to Granada and suffering a similar stalemate at Espanyol.

Another draw is sure to be a popular acca addition at 13/5, but with Villarreal averaging less than a goal a game, under 2.5 goals is also an eye catching bet at 6/5.

Dinamo Kiev vs Benfica

Few give either of these sides a chance of qualification with Barca and Bayern in their group, but they will both know that beating the other one is mandatory so we're expecting an open game in Kiev.

Benfica will be high on confidence after despatching free-scoring PSV in the final qualifying round, and the Portuguese league leaders have won all five of their Primeira Liga matches, including a 5-0 victory at Santa Barbara last time out.

However, the hosts are ready to go toe to toe with the Eagles after an unbeaten start of their own, winning five and drawing one of their six league games, scoring 22 goals and conceding just two.

Over 2.5 goals is a tasty even money shot but we're even more taken with both teams to score, at 3/4.

Sevilla vs RB Salzburg

If you're trying to find the most in-form team in all of European football then the Austrian top flight may seem like an unusual place to look. Nevertheless, Red Bull Salzburg can lay claim to that title after winning every one of their nine matches this season.

However, a trip to an unbeaten Sevilla outfit with a hatful of experience at the very highest level is a significant roadblock for the Salzburg juggernaut, as the hosts have lost just five of their last 17 Champions League matches on their own patch.

Sevilla, Champions League, La Liga

Those losses were against Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund, Juventus, Chelsea and Man City and for all their brilliance this season Red Bull Salzburg are nowhere near that level, and we reckon it will show in Spain.

The 8/13 price for a home win looks good to us, with Sevilla to win and both teams to score also sure to attract some attention at 2/1.

Malmo vs Juventus

Swedish champions Malmo face an uphill battle to get anything from their clash with Juventus. Then again, if ever there was a good time to play the Bianconeri it's now, as Massimiliano Allegri's men have yet to win this season, drawing once and losing twice.

However the Sky Blues aren't in the best of form, with two losses and a draw themselves in their last three matches. Juve will see this as the perfect opportunity to get back on track and finally give their restless fans something to shout about this season.

Malmo have lost 10 of the 12 Champions League group stage matches, including a pair of 2-0 losses to Juve in 2014. The visitors are more than acceptable at 40/85 to pile more Champions League misery on the Swedes.

Lille vs Wolfsburg

Les Dogues' shock title win last season already seems like a distant memory as Jocelyn Gourvennec's men have just two wins from six games this season and are 12th in the Ligue 1 table.

They will relish a visit from Wolfsburg about as much as you would relish a trip to the dentist, and their clash with the Germans looks like it will be just as uncomfortable, as the Wolves have a 100% record in the Bundesliga this season with four victories to their name already.


The visitors are 13/8 to get their Champions League campaign off to a flyer and that looks like cracking value against a side who have failed to win their last nine games in the competition.
