Chelsea and United hoping to avoid conceding late goals

Chelsea and Manchester United continue their Champions League campaigns and will both be hoping to continue from where they left off last time. And after the results of Tuesday night, they will especially be hoping that they don’t concede late goals a la Liverpool and Arsenal, although current scoring trends in the Champions League point to late goals being scored in both games.

Match previews and betting tips after the jump.

Chelsea v Altetico Madrid

Chelsea host Atletico Madrid at Stamford Bridge and spread buyers of their team goal rush index will be hoping that they can improve on a return of two goals from as many games. With Didier Drogba suspended Nicolas Anelka has been the main man for the continental clashes and his side’s only source of goals. Chelsea fans and buyers of their supremacy spread will be hoping last year’s Premier League golden boot winner can keep the form going, but spread sellers of his goal minutes index will be looking for the run to end.

CSKA Moscow v Manchester United

The international break gave the press two full weeks to stew on Sir Alex Ferguson’s ref-related comments after the Sunderland game. Never shy of speaking his mind, spread sellers of Manchester United’s performance index will be hoping that another Fergie broadside, and more dropped points, aren’t far away after this game.

Like fellow England colleague Gerrard, Rooney picked-up a knock on international duty; buyers of the Red Devil’s win index spread will hope that he’s back to help them on their own trip to Eastern Europe. Meanwhile, those looking at buying the frontman’s goal minutes spread will hope that he can net his first of the season in the competition.

Betting Tip of the Day

For both games, buy the Last Match Goal spread (60-63 on Moscow-United and 64-67 on Chelsea-Atletico). The current trend is for teams to score late (after the 70th minute) with 6 matches out of 8 resulting in a late goal on Tuesday night. A smartly placed bet here can easily net you sizeable winnings.
