Football: THREE IS THE MAGIC NUMBER FOR RAFA'S RAMPANT REDS.

Byline: PADDY POWER

WHAT about the Champions League? Unless you're an Arsenal fan you've got to love the way it's panned out so far.

Man United will be happiest with the draw, and funnily enough AC Milan may not be too disappointed to have drawn them either. As it stands we can't split United and Chelsea, both are 2/1 joint favourites to be champions.

Liverpool might just have something to say about that, because they've won it five times (as they reminded me 700 times when I was in Anfield recently!).

They look the best bet at 3/1 to win it and also at 6/5 to qualify over Chelsea.

You'd be better off having these few bets and turning off the telly because I have no doubt that the match in Stamford Bridge this week is going to be the most boring game of football ever - it has 0-0 written all over it.

Remember in 2005 when Liverpool and Chelsea met in the semis and all that separated them was a goal that wasn't even a goal.

If you're a sentimentalist you can have 80/1 that Liverpool are awarded a goal that doesn't cross the line on Wednesday.
