I know we just got burned in the Monaco game; I'm pretty furious about it to be honest, no card after 49mins is a joke from a ref who has shown 5 or more in 72% of CL games. He had opportunities too, and the game was set up perfectly for cards. I know this is another max stakes tip but I just cannot see where this line has come from. I'm backing the safer option of Over 4, as we get our money back if it finishes on 4. If we'd won the Monaco bet I'd have gone for the 2.25 on 50+ booking points with Skybet, but I'll play a little safer.

These 2 teams have a real chance of going through. They are 2nd and 3rd with 3 points, both being heavy outsiders to beat Benfica, with Basel sticking 5 past them last time out! This makes it a likely shootout between these 2 for the 2nd place spot, which makes me think this one should be interesting. CSKA's two games have seen 3 and 5 cards, with CSKA picking up 3 in both games. Basel's games have seen 7 and 5 cards, with Basel also picking up 3 in each game. I know it's a small sample size, but here are two sides that have picked up a high number of cards in both of their games, and with this game expected to be a close one based on recent form (bookies have all 3 outcomes above evens), we should see cards on the agenda again.

The ref for this one is Bjorn Kuipers from Holland. He averages 4.70 cards per game across 63 games in Europe and has shown 4 or more in 42/63, a strike rate of 66.67% and implies odds of 1.50. Looking at both teams and the opportunity they have to get a real foothold in the top 2 in the group, I just can't see there being less than 4 cards here.
