PARIS SAINT GERMAIN - MALMOE
The technical gap between these teams is quite wide.
It will be a special match for Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who has solved his physical problems and will lead the attack vs the team where he has started to play football.
Malmo only occupies the 5th position in swedish league and has an awful trend when playing away in international competitions: 7 losses in the last 8 away Champions League matches conceding 22 goals.
We choose the home team without any doubt.
PSG: Trapp; Marquinhos, Thiago Silva, David Luiz, Maxwell; Matuidi, Thiago Motta, Verratti; Cavani, Ibrahimović, Di María.
MALMOE: Wiland; Tinnerholm, Bengtsson, Árnason, Carvalho, Yotún; Lewicki, Adu, Berget; Djurdjić, Rosenberg.

REAL MADRID - SHAKHTAR DONETSK
Real Madrid is on a great shape, especially Cristiano Ronaldo who scored 5 goals and served 1 winning assist to Benzema in the 0-6 win on Saturday vs Espanyol.
Coach Benitez has worked a lot on defensive movements with the result that Real Madrid hasn't conceded a goal yet in official matches.
Real can't count on the injured James Rodriguez who will be substituted by Isco.
Shakhtar won the last ukrainian league match 5-0 vs Metalist and although the transfers of Douglas Costa and Luiz Adriano still has a good offensive potential but it is going to be really hard to make a good performance in Santiago Bernabeu stadium tonight.
REAL MADRID: Navas; Carvajal, Ramos, Varane, Marcelo; Isco, Kroos, Modrić; Bale, Benzema, Ronaldo.
SHAKHTAR DONETSK: Pyatov; Srna, Kucher, Rakitskiy, Shevchuk; Stepanenko, Fred, Marlos, Taison; Alex Teixeira; Gladkiy.
OVER 2.5 HOME TEAM (1.60, Sporting Bet)
PSV EINDHOVEN - MANCHESTER UNITED
Special match for Memphis Depay who will face his ex team.
Depay will lead the attack since Wayne Rooney is injured.
United can also count on Anthony Martial ready to be part of the match in the second half but probably Van Gaal will use Fellaini as forwarder in the starting lineups and FELLAINI TO SCORE ANYTIME has very good odds (3.90).
PSV has a very strong offensive potential: Luciano Narsingh, Luuk De Jong and Maxime Lestienne are ready to create troubles to the opponent's defense, which will have Daley Blind as central back (he plays better as lateral back or defensive midfielder).
We also like BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE here.
PSV: Zoet; Brenet, Moreno, Bruma, Arias; Guardado, Hendrix, Pröpper, Lestienne; De Jong, Narsingh.
MANCHESTER UNITED: De Gea; Darmian, Smalling, Blind, Shaw; Carrick, Schweinsteiger; Mata, Herrera, Memphis Depay; Fellaini.
BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE (1.70, PaddyPower)
FELLAINI TO SCORE ANYTIME (3.90, PaddyPower)
WOLFSBURG - CSKA MOSCOW
Wolfsburg won the DFB Pokal (german national cup) and obtained a 2nd place in Bundesliga in the previous season.
The new season began winning the german Super Cup vs Bayern Munchen but the last tranfesrmarket days saw the transfers of Perisic (Inter) and De Bruyne (Manchester City) who were both essential
in Wolfsburg offensive manouvers.
True, their substitutes Draxler and Kruse are very skilled but the sensation is they need time to take place in the new team. Indeed in the last Bundesliga round, Wolfsburg only drawed 0-0 vs Ingolstadt.
We like UNDER 3.5 here. CSKA has ended 7 of the 8 matches played till now in russian Premier League.
WOLFSBURG: Benaglio; Träsch, Naldo, Dante, Rodriguez; Guilavogui, Luiz Gustavo; Caligiuri, Draxler, Schürrle; Dost.
CSKA MOSCOW: Akinfeev; Mário Fernandes, V. Berezutski, Ignashevich, Schennikov; Tošić, Wernbloom, Eremenko, Dzagoev; Musa, Doumbia.
UNDER 3.5 (1.44, Betfair)
