Since their meeting in February Arsenal have picked up 2 points from a possible 6 and lost Eduardo, who had established an effective partnership with Adebayor, for the rest of the season. Arsenal fans will be delighted that they may be able to welcome back Robin Van Persie to the team as they look to secure passage through to the last 16. AC Milan do not go into the game on the best of form having drawn their last two games 1-1. However they have won their last four Champions League games at home and have only conceded three goals in nine games in all competitions.

Chelsea v Olympiakos - Live on Sky Sports 3 k/o 19:45pm

Chelsea have recovered well after they were beaten in the Carling Cup Final by Spurs. A 4-0 away victory over West Ham at Upton Park shows that Chelsea have the strength and depth to be challenging on three fronts still. The biggest problem facing Grant will be who to play. Will he bring Drogba back or will he continue to stamp his own mark on the Chelsea team: There were three midfield goal scorers at the weekend that will all be pushing for a starting birth. However there is room for improvements in Chelsea's home for in the Champions League. They have only won once and drawn the other two games. Olympiakos will be looking to inflict Chelsea's first Champions League defeat this year and progress through to the last 16. However the bookies have gone for Chelsea as favourites with BGbet offering 2/7 for a Chelsea victory and Centrebet offering 12/1 for Olympiakos win.

Champions League and Uefa Cup betting preview (Feb 19-21)


Bet on this Week's Sport

We have some fantastic sport this week, with the first knockout stage of the Champions League featuring Liverpool v Inter and Arsenal v AC Milan. We also have the second leg of the UEFA Cup matches with Tottenham v Slavia Prague and Everton v SK Brann.

Tuesday's Champions League Football


Liverpool v Inter - Live on ITV 1, k/o 7:45pm

The first knockout round kicks off in fine style, with two of the most successful teams in European history, Liverpool and Inter, face off for a place in the quarter-finals. The last few seasons have seen Inter take a stranglehold over the rest of Italian football, as the Nerazzurri have won back to back titles in the last two seasons, along with back to back Coppa Italia trophies in 04/05 and 05/06. This season has been no different, as Inter appear to be well on their way to a third straight championship, and are in the Coppa Italia quarterfinals. However, that same success hasn't occurred in Europe, having not reached the Champions League final since '72. While Inter are dominant domestically, it's the complete opposite for Liverpool, who have excelled in Europe the last few years, becoming the champions of Europe in 2005 and finishing runner-up to Milan in last season's competition. With the likes of Luis Figo, Ibrahimovic and Veira, Inter will look to terrorise the Liverpool defence. And, as ever, Benitez will be relying on Gerrard and Torres to inspire the Reds to victory. Bookies have priced Liverpool as favourites for this home leg of the tie, with Centrebet offering 13/8 for a Reds win. However, with VC Bet pricing Inter as favourites at 1/1, this tie could go to either side.

Olympiakos v Chelsea - Live on ITV 4, k/o 7:45pm

After their FA Cup victory over League One Huddersfield on Saturday, Chelsea face a trip to Athens for the Champions League clash with Greek giants Olympiakos. The Champions League will be the main focus of the Blues this season, after falling behind in the Premiership title race. With John Terry back at the heart of their defence and the threat of Anelka and Drogba up front, Chelsea should have enough quality over the two legs to qualify for the quarter-finals. However, Olympiakos shouldn't be underestimated, as the likes of Belluschi and Kovacevic will look to take full advantage of their home leg of this tie. Bearing in mind Chelsea's consistency this season, bookies have priced them as favourites for this match, with Centrebet offering 21/20 for a Blues win, while Olympiakos have been priced at 16/5 (VC Bet) to break the rulebook and defy the odds.

Wednesday's Champions League Football


Arsenal v AC Milan - Live on Sky Sports 2, k/o 7:45pm

Wednesday's big match sees Arsenal take on last year's champions AC Milan, a clash of the energy and youthful exuberance of Arsenal against experience and class of AC Milan. After the 4-0 drubbing against Man Utd on Saturday, which saw the Gunners dumped out of the FA Cup, Wenger's men will be desperate to recover quickly and establish a foothold in this tie. With Arsenal having home advantage, expect the young Gunners to come out all guns blazing. AC Milan on the other hand have experience in bundles, with the majority of their squad still performing brilliantly in their mid to late thirties. Kaka and co. will be looking to play this first leg safe and then look to pounce in the return leg in Milan. With Arsenal at home, the bookies have priced them as firm favourites at 11/10 (VC Bet), meanwhile AC Milan have been priced at 5/2 by Better to get the away win.

Lyon v Man Utd - Live on Sky Sports 1, k/o 7:45pm

After the mauling of Arsenal in the FA Cup, the big games come thick and fast with a tough tie against Lyon in the Champions League. United's Champions League form has been fantastic this season, remaining unbeaten and only conceding four goals. With Ronaldo leading the Champions League scoring charts, he'll be determined to continue his wondrous form and against a fragile Lyon defence. Although Lyon are traditionally strong Champions League participants, they have not been impressive this year, with Lyon recently losing to Le Mans in Ligue 1. However, with wonderkids such as Benzema and Hatem Ben Arfa both in red hot form, expect the resilient United defence being tested. Bookies have placed Man Utd as favourites, pricing them at 13/10 (Centrebet) to get the away win, while Better have priced Lyon at 15/8 to take advantage of this tie.

BGbet are offering to refund all losing first goalscorer bets on Lyon v Man Utd if Ryan Giggs scores at anytime in this match.*

Thursday's UEFA Cup Football


Tottenham v Slavia Prague - Live on ITV 4, k/o 7:45pm

Tottenham take on S. Prague in the return leg of this UEFA Cup tie, with Tottenham taking a 2-1 advantage into this match. Having withstood a second-half rally from S. Prague in the first leg, Tottenham go into this match confident in the knowledge that as long as they keep it tight, they will progress to the next round.

Everton v SK Brann - Live on Five, k/o 8:00pm

The 2-0 first leg defeat of Brann in the UEFA Cup was the kind of performance that would have pleased hardened European campaigners. And having negotiated the away half of the tie in Norway with ease, David Moyes will be confident his side can wrap things up at Goodison Park and progress to the last 16.Bearing in mind Everton's consistency this season, bookies have priced them as favourites for this match, with Better offering 1/4 for a Toffees win, while SK Brann have been priced at 17/2 (VC Bet) to defy the odds and progress to the last 16.
