The Champions League is back and we were thrilled to see some action yesterday. Most of the expected results came to except for two of them. We saw Manchester United claim an unexpected victory at the Parc des Princes and we also saw Lazio get the better of Dortmund.
Barcelona, Juventus and Leipzig all claimed wins as expected and it was a pretty good night. Chelsea and Sevilla ruined our goal market with a goalless stalemate but we were rewarded with some good fortune in the goal scorer section. We predicted Morata and Messi to get goals yesterday and they delivered on that end.
A lot of good games are on ground today and we’re here to give you some of the best picks as usual.
Bayern Munich vs Atletico Madrid Prediction
58 days since lifting the Champions League trophy for the sixth time, Bayern Munich must now begin the defense of their title at home to Atletico Madrid on Wednesday night.
Lokomotiv Moscow and RB Salzburg are in Group A alongside the reigning champions and their foes. Progression to the knockout stages is expected. But in Atletico lies a direct rival for the all-important top spot.
Neither side has produced their best form during this frenetic start to the season either. Although their previous encounters have been close affairs, with only a single goal separating them in their last four Champions League meetings. Both teams claimed two wins apiece and no draws.
Bayern to win
Bayern have not lost 12 out of their last 14 games and we’re tipping them to claim a narrow win today. Bayern have also scored in 30 out of their last 31 home games and the venue has been something of a fortress for them. Bet9ja offer odds of 1.6 while Betking have odds of 1.65.
Over 2.5 goals
In the last two home games for Bayern, there has been at least over 3.5 goals and the German giants ever seem to have a problem scoring. We expect more of that today as well. Bet9ja offer odds of 1.68 while Betking has it better at 1.75.
Real Madrid take on Shakhtar Donetsk in the first game of their Champions League campaign. Los Blancos are coming off the back of a defeat and would be without Sergio Ramos but we still expect them to claim a win at the Bernabeu. Bet9ja and Betking have odds of 1.20 for this.
Inter Milan take on Borussia Monchengladbach in another interesting clash tonight. Similar to Real Madrid, the Nerazzurri are also coming off the back of a defeat to their Milano rivals and will be eager to get back to winning ways. We’re tipping Antonio Conte’s men to take all three points. Both Bet9ja and BetKing have odds of 1.77 for Inter to win.
Elsewhere, Manchester City take on Porto and it promises to be another entertaining clash. The Citizens have not been up to their best this season but we expect them to claim all three points today. Bet9ja has odds of 1.26 while Betking has odds of 1.30.
Over 2.5 goals
Inter Milan and Borussia Monchengladbach are expected to bring a good amount of goals. The Serie A side have no problem scoring goals and it promises to be just that once again. Bet9ja have 1.52 odds for this while Betking has odds of 1.55.
Liverpool vs Ajax is potentially one of the most interesting ties for the day as well. We would normally tip Liverpool for a win but the current situation of things with the Reds doesn’t suggest that. We are tipping them to both score a good amount of goals anyways. Bet9ja has odds of 1.32 and Ajax have 1.37.
We already tipped Real Madrid to claim a win against Shakthar Donetsk and we expect a good number of goals in that encounter as well. Bet9ja and Betking have odds of 1.20 for this.
After months out due to injury, Sergio Aguero made his return against Arsenal at the weekend. The Argentine forward has a good record in the Champions League group stage and will be eager to get back in the goals once again. Bet9ja has odds of 1.75 for him to score while Betking has it at 1.90.
Romelu Lukaku scored at the weekend but it was not enough as Inter lost out to AC Milan in the derby. The Belgian is already up to four goals this season and would no doubt be eager to fire his side back to winning ways. Bet9ja has odds of 2.00 for this while Betking has 2.25 odds for the same event.
He is the number one shout for Real Madrid when it comes to goalscoring for sure. If Los Blancos are to score and get a win at all, he is the number one name on the list. Bet9ja has odds of 1.80 for this event and Betking are offering 2.14.
Football Lover. All-round junkie of the beautiful game. Could be found watching football most of the time. If not he’s writing about them or making some punditry you don’t agree with. A certain bias for Arsenal and Santos FC.
