Matchday 3 should be interesting because we get to watch all time leading Champions League scorer, Cristiano Ronaldo, face his old club at Old Trafford. He is my favorite play on the slate.

Here are my top picks for UCL Tuesday October 23.


Cristiano Ronaldo

He is finally back in form and should dominate against his former club. Both these teams have yet to concede in match play but Ronaldo will be fired up for this one. He rose to international fame during his younger days at Manchester United. Expect an emotional performance from the Champions league scoring legend.


Edin Dzeko

He scored a hat trick in his last UCL match and is the main scoring option for Roma who sits at the top of the group.



Real Madrid faces the bottom team,Viktoria Plzen, in the group who have allowed 7 goals in two matches. They are really struggling to score goals but I think they have success in this fixture. They have an upcoming match against Barcelona this weekend and will look to boost morale against a poor squad.

Hakin Ziyech

The best midfielder in dutch football should get on the scoresheet today in a home clash vs Benfica. He’s had two shots on goal in each of his first two UCL matches but I think he scores today.

Kerem Demirbay

He is too cheap and works all over the field for Hoffinheim. He tallied an assist in his last UCL match as well.


Nicolas Tagliafico

He picked up a knock during the international break with Argentina but is slated to start on Tuesday. He scored two goals in his last home UCL match and Benfica has conceeded 2 goals in each UCL match.

Eric Bailly

The Man U defender will be busy dealing with the likes of Ronaldo and Paulo Dybala. He has the opportunity to earn lots of clearances and blocks since Ronaldo will be shooting a lot today.


Andre Onana

The young Cameroonian GK has conceeded only 1 goal in his last 2 UCL matches. He earned a clean sheet in his last UCL home match and I think he delivers again.

My Favorite Game Stacks of the Day

Real Madrid

They are struggling to find the net but a matchup against Viktoria should remedy the problem. If they don’t come out with a win here, then it’s seriously time to worry about their future without Cristiano Ronaldo.


They’ve scored 9 goals in their last 2 dutch league matches and they have the fire power to produce goals at home.


If Ronaldo gets going, it could be a long night for Manchester United. You can also stack Manchester United if you expect plenty of goals to be scored in this one.
