Liverpool host Bordeaux at Anfield tonight knowing that a win or a goalless draw will be enough to secure qualification to the knockout stages with one game to go.

They had a fantastic 4-1 win away to Man City at the weekend where some of their football was unbelievable, therefore confidence will be high and they should prove too strong for the French team tonight despite the fact there are bound to be changes to Jurgen Klopp's team.

Philippe Countinho hurt his hamstring on Saturday so is certain to miss out whilst Martin Skrtel has picked up an illness and won't be risked. However, Christian Benteke is now fully fit and Daniel Sturridge has also been back in full training for a week or so now which means he will be raring to go.

I expect Liverpool to come out at a really fast pace and try and get at Bordeaux from the start and fully expect them to win by a few goals tonight. Therefore I will be covering them on the handicap at minus one and minus two as I think this represents a little bit of value.

Spurs travel to FK Karabakh knowing that a win will secure a passage through to the knockout stages and even a draw may do, depending on results elsewhere in their group. However, Spurs have a London derby against Cheslea at midday on Sunday so I think they will make several changes for tonight to keep players fresh for that game.

I don't think Spurs have too much depth in their squad and without a couple of key players tonight I think they will struggle to get a win and I like the look of backing Karabakh on the handicap plus one. I actually have a feeling that Spurs may lose this one due to team changes but playing the handicap is the safer option as we still collect if it finishes in a draw.
