Arsenal drawing yesterday helped me to two units. McTominay had a stunning strike in the first half for Manchester United, but Aubameyang pulled it back in the second half. McTominay has been improving lately, but both these clubs need more improvement if they want to dream of reaching the standard that Liverpool/Man City have set..

Real Madrid -1.5 at -120 for 4 units. I watched Real Madrid play Sevilla and Atletico recently. They secured 4 points against those two tough-to-play clubs. The Real defense looked a lot better than against PSG in those games… That’ll happen when Sergio Ramos is allowed back in the lineup. Real Madrid have struggled at home in the Champions League losing to Ajax and Juve, while tying Bayern. Club Brugge have not lost in their last 3 away games vs teams with a higher UEFA score in Champions League. Even so, I expect Hazard, Benzema, Ramos, Varane, Modric, Casemiro, and Kroos to get the job done. Real Madrid will be ready to play today.
Vinicius Junior scored a fantastic goal against Osasuna recently. His teammates were happy for him, which is nice to see. Junior has all the talent, but hasn’t put it all together in games. Here’s to hoping he does today as a sub.
Tottenham +0.5 at -127 for 1 unit. Harry Kane vs Lewandowski. Bayern’s pace at winger and creativity with Coutinho, Kimmich, and Thiago worries me a little.. but not enough. Tottenham have been great at home in Champions League against top clubs over the past few years. The Lilywhites “need” this win more than Bayern, as they are two points behind in the group.
