Although Manchester City are playing host RB Leipzig at the Etihad, we should not forget the action in the Championship either.

Race For Promotion
If you prefer your football to have more of an EFL tint, then we have four of our very best bets to keep you entertained.
Coming From Nowhere
The first of our four clashes takes us to the Riverside Stadium, as Middlesbrough play host to Stoke and with Michael Carrick’s men having made further inroads on Sheffield United, the race for second place is very much on.
After getting the better of Swansea at the weekend and the Blades subsequently being blunted by Luton on the same day, the gap between them is now at four points. Should ‘Boro win on Tuesday, the gap could temporarily be down to just one.
Standing in the way of such progress is none other than Stoke and although Alex Neil’s side have found a semblance of good form in recent weeks, they are likely to be no match for a red-hot Middlesbrough outfit and this is why I am backing a home win at odds of 5/6.
Further Wigan Woe
Next up we go to the DW Stadium as basement side Wigan welcome Coventry and although Shaun Maloney was recently installed to take over from the hapless Kolo Toure as manager of the Latics, there has not been much in the way of bounce.
Currently six points from safety, it is fair to say that Wigan are up against it in terms of their survival hopes and with an in-form Coventry side visiting on Tuesday night, things may only get worse for Maloney and his players.
The Sky Blues have not lost any of their last seven league encounters and possess the second-longest unbeaten run at present behind Burnley. In my eyes, the run extends to eight, but Mark Robins’ men also earn maximum points at odds of 29/20.
Wilder At Watford
Now we are off to Vicarage Road, as Chris Wilder’s recently inherited Watford charges welcome Birmingham and although the visitors are unlikely to bring former Hornet Troy Deeney on their travels, it is fair to say that they did not miss him in their last outing.
At the weekend, John Eustace’s men picked up a rather welcome home win at the expense of Rotherham. A 2-0 win in the West Midlands just puts further daylight between themselves and the bottom three.
Now though, they must travel to a Watford side that are looking for their first league win in four attempts and perhaps more importantly the first for new boss Wilder. Thankfully, I think the play-off path will begin to be tread once again, as the Hornets earn a home win at odds of 5/6
Lions Eat Swans
While my final pick takes me to the Den in South London, as Millwall play host to Swansea. The hosts currently occupy the last of the four play-off places on offer and the visitors are dealing with nothing more than mid-table malaise.
Gary Rowett’s men are one of the form teams in the division right now and have lost just one of their last six. While things do not make for good reading if you are his managerial counterpart, Russell Martin.
The former Norwich defender has overseen just one point from the last 15 on offer and although relegation is not threatened, his job might be if this run continues. Unfortunately for him, I think this will be the case, as Millwall roar to a home win at odds of 10/11.
While if you put all four combinations together, Bet365 are prepared to offer you 14.72/1 in return.
