THE days are getting shorter, [...].

Byline: Paddy Power

THE days are getting shorter, the GAA has wound up for the year, but the one silver lining that this time of year has going for it is the return of the Champions League.

Man City are once again involved in the pick of the week's action as they take on Roma who have won all their games this season.

The Italian league gets a bit of a bad rap these days, but make no bones about it this Roma side are well capable of causing an upset.

They may still be without Kevin Strootman but the likes of Danielle De Rossi, Miralem Pjanic and Adem Ljajic make them a formidable prospect for any side while Arsenal reject Gervinho looks a different player in maroon, scoring at will.

As for City, they've had a mixed start to the season and haven't reached anywhere near last season's heights in any of their games.

Against Bayern Munich they sat back more than Gervinho's forehead before conceding at the death.

I'm going go for both sides to score and the game to end in a draw which is a 7/2 shot.
