Champions League Action

Champions Play resumes on November 26th and while a few clubs have advanced to the knockout phase there are some big matches in the next round.

A couple of the bigger matches on the docket are Basel hosting Chelsea, Borussia Dortmund hosting Napoli, Bayer Leverkusen hosting Manchester United, and Juventus hosting FC Copenhagen.

Chelsea has their destiny in their hands, as they are the leader in Group E with nine points and Basel, who are pretty much in a must win match, in third with five points.

The Blues are the major betting road favorite at Bet 365 midweek at -110 with Basel at +330 and a draw line of +250.

Basel only has one win in group play, but that win was a big one beating Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

Napoli can assure themselves a spot in the knockout phase with a win over Borussia Dortmund. The German squad needs a win to stay alive unless Arsenal is shocked at home facing Marseilles, who have no points in Group F.

Midweek Dortmund is the favorite at -188 with Napoli at +500 and a draw at +320.

In the first group matches between these two teams Napoli was at home and beat Borussia Dortmund 2-1.

Manchester United can advance to the knockout phase with a win over Bayer Leverkusen, who sit one point behind them in group play. Bayer Leverkusen is the slight home betting favorites at +138 with Man U at +188 and a draw line at +240.

If Man U wins this match and Shakhtar Donetsk beats Real Sociadad in the other group match then Bayer Leverkusen will need help to advance to the knockout phase since they already faced Shakhtar twice.

Juventus has been the disappointment of Champions League play, but they are still alive and it is pretty simple for them. They must beat FC Copenhagen and Galatasaray in their last two group matches to advance.

Midweek Bet365 has Juve as a massive home favorite at -700 with FC Copenhagen at +1400 and a draw line of +650.
