All the latest odds and betting from the UEFA Champions League for Wednesday 14 September 2011. Read on for the latest odds including games involving Manchester City, Manchester United, Inter Milan, Bayern Munich, Real Madrid and Villarreal.
Manchester United and Manchester City start their UEFA Champions League campaigns this evening in what will be two tricky encounters for both Manchester clubs. Manchester City faces a home tie against Italian underdogs Napoli whilst Manchester United travels to Benfica, the scene of their 2005 exit from the Champions League group stage exit.
Manchester City has started the season in imperious form and Roberto Mancini will be keen for the club to get their inaugural Champions League season off to a flier in front of a passionate Etihad Stadium. Napoli will be no pushovers though and will bring the likes of Marek Hamsik Edinson Cavani and Ezequiel Lavezzi to Manchester in the hope of causing a real upset.
Manchester City are favoured with the bookies this evening with a price of 4/11 for a home win with Napoli standing at 8/1 to claim a victory with Sky Bet.
Similarly Manchester United has looked in tremendous form and the club sit at the top of the Premier League after the weekends 5-0 drubbing of Bolton. Manchester United will be looking to Wayne Rooney and Ashley Young to help them to victory in Portugal but in front of an expectant Portuguese crowd, Benfica will be looking for an upset. Sir Alex Ferguson will be keen to forget the fact that Benfica's 2-1 win in December 2005 dumped United out of the Champions League altogether.
Manchester United is clear favourites with Sky Bet and is priced at evens with a home win coming in at 11/4. A good price is for a draw in this match, with Sky Bet offering 12/5 on Manchester United being unable to claim three points this evening.
