this is a tough match-up to predict as you just don't know which pool side will show up, the one that struggled to a draw with stoke city, or the one that convincingly beat manchester united and chelsea. west ham too, are highly inconsistent. what i do know is that both teams have been short on goals recently, and with torres out, i think punters will be expecting goals to be in short supply. however, i feel that runs will have to end, and i see there being goals tonight.
Eddy's prediction: $5 on over 2.5 goals @ 1.85 = $9.25
