Reading not to beat Sheffield Wednesday (15.00 kick-off)

Having been taken apart by Brentford a fortnight ago, Sheffield Wednesday manager Jos Luhukay has done an admirable job of steering his side’s season back on track since.

The 55-year-old dropped senior players Sam Hutchinson and Fernando Forestieri after that match, introducing more youth to the side, and was rewarded with consecutive home wins that mean they go to Reading in decent nick.

The hosts are without a win in their last four league games at the Madejski Stadium, losing both so far this season.

Sunderland not to beat Oxford (15.00 kick-off)

Sunderland and Oxford have both scored plenty of goals recently, but there is value in backing the hosts not to come out on top when they meet on Saturday.

Jack Ross’ side have not convinced with their performances even when they have managed to win, not least when a Lee Cattermole brace saved them from dropped points when they were outplayed at AFC Wimbledon last weekend.

Oxford have scored 11 goals in their last five games, so are unlikely to miss the chances that the Mackems have been granting their opposition so far.

Atletico Madrid not to beat Celta Vigo (17.30 kick-off)

Atletico limped past Rayo Vallecano 1-0 last weekend, but may not have such luck if they underperform again.

Celta Vigo had an excellent home record against Spain’s best sides last season, avoiding defeat against Barcelona, Real Madrid and Valencia at the Balaidos.

Though now under different management, their unbeaten start to the La Liga season suggests they are a good enough team to produce similar this term.

Bayern Munich not to beat Stuttgart (17.30 kick-off)

You will rarely get a better chance to back against Bayern than this weekend.

The Bundesliga champions were thrashed 4-1 at home by this opposition on the last weekend of last season, before starting their season by limping past Hoffenheim a week ago.

And though their failure to win two of their first four away games of last season can be put down to their struggles under Carlo Ancelotti, there are similar question marks over the appointment of Nico Kovac this summer.

Stuttgart only lost this fixture to a 79th-minute winner last season and are unbeaten in seven home league games. They could pounce on any uncertainty.
