BATE VS MUNICH
Bayern Munich flew out to Minsk on Monday in preparation for tonights Champions League clash with BATE Borisov. Munich have endured the perfect start to the season, domestically they have won all six games and find themselves two points clear at the top of the Bundesliga. They have won nine in a row in all competitions and will be oozing confidence heading into tonights game. Their director of Sport Matthias Sammer has dominated the media this week criticising the side having scored two late goals against Werder Bremen at the weekend to earn the three points. Of course, the outburst has to be to avoid complacency within the team and BATE are unlikely to be a total push over tonight having endured an unbeaten run stretching to sixteen games in all competitions. Arjen Robben misses tonights game through injury as Bayern bring a nineteen-man squad to face BATE. Confidence will be high in the BATE camp having eased to victory over Lille in France, 3-1 getting their Champions League campaign off to the perfect start. They go into tonights game top of Group F on goal difference. Bayern Munich are a poor price as you can imagine this evening to beat BATE in their own backyard, 1/3 and we have to seek value – Munich -1 pays 10/11 and will feature in our treble this evening.
GYTO punt: Bayern Munich -1 @ 10/11
MULLER could be the key to Munich’s success this evening. You can grab him to score first at 11/2 or anytime at 7/5 generally. (Photo – http://www.allvoices.com/contributed-news/13035579/image/)
VALENCIA VS LILLE
Lille losing at home a fortnight ago to BATE was one of the shocks of the night and they will be seeking compensation tonight. They face a tough Valencia side though, who won well at the weekend beating Real Zaragoza 2-0. Lille were far from convincing losing 3-1 at home to BATE and were well beaten domestically by Rennes at the weekend. It looks a tough ask this evening and the 8/15 about the home side looks very tempting, a risk worth taking.
GYTO punt: Valencia to win @ 8/15

NORDSJAELLAND VS CHELSEA
Chelsea are enduring a solid start to the new season, domestically and in the Champions League. We were at the Bridge a fortnight ago where they let slip a two goal lead to Juventus. Oscar was the star man that night, scoring both goals, proving a persistent threat penetrating the Juve defence. When he was injured and subbed, Chelsea lacked creativity and struggled to keep a grip on the game. Pirlo slowly managed to dominate the midfield, and with Juve having scored at such a crucial time (before half-time) a comeback looked inevitable. A draw at home to Juve is far from a bad result and Chelsea will be looking to march on tonight against newcomers Nordsjaelland. Shakhtar put two past them two weeks ago with no reply and given Chelsea’s freedom to score goals of late with so many attacking midfielders, the -1 at 13/10 looks a huge price. Granted it will be an intimidating atmosphere this evening, but given the manor in which Chelsea took all three points off Arsenal at the weekend, it’s a challenge the holders are up to – Torres plays with Sturridge injured.
GYTO punt: Chelsea -1 @ 13/10
