UCL Matchday 6

Could we be seeing the return of English clubs' dominance in the Champions League in UCL Matchday 6? 
 
All five Premier League clubs sit top of their respective groups going into the final matchday, though some still have to edge over the line to qualify for the last-16. 
 
Here's what to look out for in the latest round of fixtures: 
 

Manchester United vs CSKA Moscow

Whatever the stats say, Manchester United were impressive against Arsenal. They were clinical, they carved Arsenal open, and then did enough defensively to hold onto their lead. Just as Jose Mourinho's men are finding their feet again, they welcome CSKA Moscow, who they beat 4-1 back in September in Russia. 
 
Recommended bet: Anthony Martial to score in 90 minutes at 6/4
 

Chelsea vs Atletico Madrid

Antonio Conte pulled off a tactical masterclass the last time these two faced each other. The Blues have recovered very well since their shock 3-0 defeat to Roma and they welcome the Rojiblancos to Stamford Bridge in decent form. It goes without saying that Antoine Griezmann is once again the danger man after an intermittent start to the season, as the Frenchman has hit four goals in four games. Eden Hazard has three in four, so it'll be an intriguing battle. 
 
Recommended bet: Eden Hazard and Antoine Griezmann both to score at 6/1
 

Shakhtar Donetsk vs Manchester City

City's win over West Ham means it's now 20 wins in a row and 28 matches unbeaten. Simply incredible form. While they've been tested in recent weeks and haven't looked quite at their scintillating best, they've always found a way to win nonetheless, because they've got goalscorers all over the pitch. 
 
Recommended bet: Manchester City to win at 7/4
 

Liverpool vs Spartak Moscow

The Reds' last European outing was nothing short of ridiculous as they threw away a three-goal lead against Sevilla, but Moscow don't carry the same threat going forward. Liverpool should be able to do just enough to edge through and they concede very few at home. 
 
Recommended bet: Liverpool to win to nil at 6/5
 

Tottenham vs APOEL

Spurs are widely expected to field an under-strength side in this dead rubber tie, as it's already been confirmed that they'll top Group H. Their attackers will benefit from that the most, as Harry Kane has looked tired. That should give Fernando Llorente a much-needed opportunity, but the Spaniard is still yet to score in a Tottenham shirt. We're backing Heung-Min Son as first goalscorer, as he's been underused by Mauricio Pochettino but still found the back of the net against Watford - he may well start on the bench against Stoke on Saturday, so he's one of the bigger names that should start here. 
 
Recommended bet: Heung-Min Son to score first at 11/4
