Key Fixtures

Manchester United vs. Shakhtar Donetsk

Having gone unbeaten through their group stage trials thus far, Manchester United need only a point to ensure that they come out on top of Group A and will seek to find it against Shakhtar Donetsk on Tuesday.

David Moyes' side have looked lacklustre on domestic shores, losing to Newcastle United at home this weekend, but it's oddly Europe, the arena in which some were unsure of the manager's credentials, where the Red Devils have been at their best.

Drawing 1-1 in the reverse fixture, United will hope to maintain their 100 percent home winning record in Europe this season by ousting their Ukrainian counterparts, bringing some joy to what has otherwise been a murky period for the English giants.

Prediction: Manchester United 3-1 Shakhtar Donetsk

 

Galatasaray vs. Juventus

There's a decent chance that Juventus face early eviction from this season's Champions League by failing to get a result in Istanbul on Tuesday evening.

The Serie A champions are currently two points ahead of Roberto Mancini's side but were held to a 2-2 draw in the reverse meeting and can still be caught by those beneath them.

Real Madrid's dominance in Group B means that only second place remains up for grabs, and Gala will hope that their reputation as daunting hosts will let them walk away with three points, enough to leapfrog their Italian visitors into the round of 16.

Prediction: Galatasaray 2-2 Juventus

 

Napoli vs. Arsenal

The tightest pool in contention for the knockout stages of the tournament faces its inevitable finale this week, and it's Arsenal, Napoli and Borussia Dortmund left in the running to come out as Group F's victors.

Arsene Wenger has done magnificently to put his side in such a comfortable position prior to this week's trip to Naples, where only a point is needed to secure first place for the Gunners.

The Azzurri and the Black and Yellows are currently tied on nine points apiece and trailing Arsenal by three, meaning that only a win will do for Rafa Benitez's men, unless they are to rely on Marseille beating the Bundesliga titans.

Prediction: Napoli 1-1 Arsenal
