UEFA Champions League: Wednesday's Preview

Manchester United take in their first home date since being humiliated 6-1 by arch-rivals City and will want to put on a show against Otelul Galati. FC Basel gave Sir Alex Ferguson's side a fright at the Theatre of Dreams on 27th September and the Red Devils will be keen for the Swiss outfit to produce a similar display when they travel to Portugal to take on Group C leaders Benfica. Manchester City have taken four points from their three fixtures so far, but that return is only good enough for third place in Group A. They could, however, clamber into the top two should they see off Villarreal on Wednesday and Napoli drop points on the road. Inter Milan may be enduring a tough time in Serie A, but they sit top of Group B and can strengthen their grip on that position with victory over reigning French champions Lille. Should Real Madrid emerge victorious in an away date at Lyon, they will join Primera Liga rivals Barcelona in booking their place in the knockout stages with two games to spare.
