Wednesday's Champions League action features matches from Groups A, B, C and D. A pair of European giants - Man United and Juventus -  are off to slow starts and will look to build a little momentum with positive results.

Manchester United vs. Real Sociedad (-200, +333, +550)

Why bet Man United: Because this is a club that needs something good to happen. United sits in top position in Group A with four points and a serious push in Champions League will soften the blow of a terrible start (in United standards) to the Premier League campaign. The Red Devils were on the verge of a solid 1-0 victory over Southampton, but the plucky Saints managed an 89' goal from Adam Lallana to force a tie. These are things that didn't happen to United under Fergie.

Why bet Real Sociedad: Coming off a very successful campaign in La Liga last season, a lot of expectation was heaped upon Real Sociedad. It hasn't been a good start in either Champions League and in Spain, however. Sociedad has yet to record a point in a tough Group A with losses versus Shakhtar and at Leverkusen. The side is talented and better then the start we've seen, so potentially picking up points at Old Trafford could turn their season around, and prove to skeptics that they belong in Europe.

Key betting note: Sociedad has played under the 2.5 goal total in three of its four Champions League matches (including qualifiers) this season.

Real Madrid vs. Juventus (-188, +333, +500)

Why bet Real Madrid: Madrid is off to an incredible start in Group B after thrashing both Galatasaray and Copenhagen. Juventus will be the first real test, however, but Madrid is already sitting pretty in the group after the Italian side drew both of its matches against the same opponents. The top of the table in La Liga is log jammed as Madrid sits third, but the squad is so deep and so talented that a good run in Europe is surely in the cards.

Why bet Juventus: Juve ran away with the Serie A crown last season, but has gotten off to a rough start domestically this time around. The Old Lady was thrashed by a game Fiorentina side 4-2 at the weekend and a slow start in Champions League won't help. Juventus drew both Galatasaray and Copenhagen and must find its form against Madrid or else could be on the outside looking in.

Key betting note: Juventus has won its last four matches versus Madrid in all competitions.
