Rostov earned the right to be taken seriously in Champions League Group D by qualifying at the expense of competition regulars Anderlecht and Ajax, but it is difficult to see them getting anything of note on their group-stage debut away to 4.94/1 tournament second favourites Bayern Munich.

The German giants hired Pep Guardiola - two Champions League triumphs in four years as a top-tier coach - in 2013 to try to strengthen their poor conversion rate of one title in 12 years, yet he didn't even reach the final, so now they have turned to the joint-most successful tactician in its existence.

Three-time winner Carlo Ancelotti has dined at the top table with six clubs, first employers Reggiana being the sole side that he didn't partake with, and he knows how to get underway in it, prevailing in his opening contests with Parma, Juventus, AC Milan, Chelsea, Paris St-Germain and Real Madrid.


Over 4.5 Goals

Winning alone is no longer enough for Ancelotti on a Champions League bow - he has to do it in style. At Paris St-Germain, he opened with a 4-1 dismissal of Dynamo Kiev, while his victorious maiden Real Madrid campaign commenced with a 6-1 domination of Galatasaray in Istanbul.

Bayern Munich scored 14 home group-stage goals last season against the far-from-dismal trio of Dinamo Zagreb, Arsenal and Olympiakos and, consequently, 2.9215/8 has to be judged a decent price on over 4.5 goals.
