Wednesday football and racing

Man Utd and Real Madrid both won and make their leaps towards the next stage. It was not all plain-sailing for the Red Devils against a composed Galati side but in the end their class prevailed. It will be interesting to see how the absence of Vidic due to his red card plays out in the next matches. In the other matches, Man City got the taste of winning in Europe's premier competition by beating Villareal in the last minute. Aguero is just fulfilling in every expectation of him so far for the Citizens as he snatched the winning goal.

On Wednesday, Chelsea hosts Racing Genk and I cannot see the Belgians winning at the Bridge. I still have reservations about the genuine quality of this Chelsea side, so I recommend them as a draw-no-bet. Porto are very strong at home and they shouldn't lose to Nicosia; I recommend them as draw-no-bet as well.

The only certainty at home is Barcelona as they host Viktoria.They should win this by a few goals, so they are recommended as a straight win.

In racing, the 19:20 race at Kempton looks an ideal opportunity for Tortoni to break his maiden. The Teofilo colt has gone close in 4 of his 5 starts and he's expected to be a serious contender in this rather weak race. I cannot see him out of the first 2 so I recommend him as a Place.

Win: Barcelona
Draw-no-bet: Chelsea, Porto
Place: Tortoni
