1 Man Utd half-time/draw full-time (12-1)
I could see United scoring in the first half, but 1-0 is a dangerous score to sit on, and Roma have the talent to strike back an go through with a draw.
2 Cristiano Ronaldo to score first goal (13-2)
Ronaldo has never scored in the Champions League but he is too good for it to stay that way. The stage is set for him to break his duck tonight.

3 Correct score to be Valencia 3-1 Chelsea (25-1)
I really can’t see Chelsea going to Spain and getting a result; in fact, I predict quite the opposite. Valencia rested key players at the weekend, whilst Chelsea’s smallish squad will surely run out of gas – and luck – soon. Put a quid on Valencia winning 3-2 too, at 35-1.

4 David Villa to be first goalscorer (11-2)

Villa didn’t play at the weekend and looks a decent bet to open the scoring.

5 More than five second-half corners (Evens)

If, as I forecast, Valencia score in the first half, Chelsea will have to push on in the second half, making it much more likely that they pick up a few corners.
