David Silva can add to his goal tally in the Champions League on Tuesday, while Manchester United should be taken to bounce back into goalscoring form.

David Silva to score the first goal in Lyon v Man City @ 17/2

City’s Spanish maestro is the new 9/4 favourite to be named PFA Player of the Year following a continued run of impressive form, one which has also brought the midfielder goals.

Silva has scored in his last four games and is 21/10 to add another during a match in which City only need a point from to secure their place in the knockout stage.
Victory would see them top the group and leave nothing riding on their last game (at home to Hoffenheim).

However, it is more tempting to back Silva to score the first goal, something he has done in three of those four recent games.

Manchester United to score in both halves v Young Boys @ 10/11

This may seem a strange suggestion to those who saw United huff and puff to no avail against Crystal Palace on Saturday.

However, Jose Mourinho will be demanding a reaction to that effort and this game looks ideal in many ways for him to get it.

The Red Devils know its importance given the tightness of the battle with Valencia and Juventus for a top-two spot, and Young Boys are very much the poor relation in this group.

They were thoroughly outclassed in the reverse fixture, with United winning 3-0 in Bern and, despite their dominance of the Swiss league they have continually come up short in this competition, also shipping three goals when losing in Turin and Valencia.

Roma to beat Real Madrid (draw no bet) @ 27/20

The Santiago Solari honeymoon period came to end in spectacular fashion on Saturday as Real crashed to a 3-0 defeat at Eibar, a result which suggests no long-term fix has been put in place at the Bernabeu.

Their defence has now conceded at least two goals in four of their last eight games and Roma have the attacking verve to add to that statistic.

Their goal returns this season at the Stadio Olimpico are 4-3-0-5-3-4-2-3, with eight of those goals having come in Europe’s top club competition.

This is a step up and Real do still have plenty of talent in their ranks, but the Spaniards’ current form means they certainly can be taken on in what is the toughest fixture of their group campaign.
