The Champions League proper gets underway this week with the best value of Tuesday's matches in Turkey where Galatasaray are 11/2 to record a home win against the millionaires of Real Madrid. Galatasaray boast a fine recent record in Istanbul, losing only two of their last 14 home European matches, so are worth backing. They also won at home when the the two sides met in the quarter-finals last season, although Real went through.
On paper Manchester City ought to have few troubles beating Czech qualifiers Viktoria Plzen but there's a feeling the tie against a side unbeaten in eight matches might not be easy. At 19/4 in a two-horse race, Viktoria Plzen are worth a flutter.
