The most anticipated competition across Europe begins today with the start of the UCL group stages.
We have a lot of tips ready for you today as we look to decipher the best odds for you
Real Madrid has obliterated every opponent they’ve faced this season; they have six wins in a row in all competitions. Celtic are coming off a comfortable 4:0 win over city rivals Rangers; they have been unstoppable this season, winning seven of seven matches played across two competitions. Despite Celtic’s fine form, they’ve only faced opponents in Scotland; Real Madrid will be a relatively bigger fish to fry. Considering Los Blancos have been the best team in the history of this tournament, we believe they’ll take all the points from this match. Bet9ja have 1.60 odds, Paripesa have 1.62 odds and 1xBet have 1.62 odds.
Following back-to-back 1-0 victories in the Bundesliga, Borussia Dortmund returns to UEFA Champions League (UCL) action in search of bettering their group stage exit from last season. The Danish side Copenhagen has just begun their season with just one win in two games, the team might be rusty and not ready to face a resilient Dortmund side. Dortmund may lean on their unbeaten record against Danish sides (W3, D1) to help their cause, but perhaps expect a close encounter regardless, as three of their last four victories this season have been by a 1-0 scoreline. Bet9ja have 1.38 odds, Paripesa have 1.34 odds and 1xBet have 1.35 odds.
AC Milan will arrive full of confidence after securing an impressive 3-2 victory over bitter rivals Inter on Saturday, giving them their best five-game start to a Serie A title defense this century (W3, D2). Now, attention shifts to continental action, as they aim to win the UCL as Italian champions for the first time since 1994. Salzburg is in the UEFA Champions League (UCL) group stage for the fourth time in a row. Ac Milan has a good record from UCL matchday one fixtures under the current format with (W8, D2, L1). Bet9ja have 2.06 odds, Paripesa have 2.08 odds and 1xBet have 2.08 odds.
Sevilla definitely could not have picked a worse time to face Manchester City as the latter is yet to be beaten this season. Meanwhile, Sevilla is struggling for form as they haven’t won a league game this season with three losses and a draw and the most recent a 3-nil thumping against Barcelona. Manchester City would be looking to put their draw away at Villa behind them and get their UCL campaign started with a win. This is going to be the case as Manchester City would be too good. Bet9ja have 1.40 odds, Paripesa have 1.44 odds and 1xBet have 1.44 odds.
The first of the over 2.5 goals tip. Dinamo Zagreb has seen each of their last four games go north of the 2.5 thresholds. Their game average shatters that 2.5 cut off too coming in at 4.8 per game. Chelsea meanwhile, despite their lack of an out-and-out striker right now, have gone over 2.5 goals in each of their last five games. Their game average in that period is 3.2 goals. With both sides consistently breaking the 2.5 markers, there is every chance we see a few goals as they lock horns here. Bet9ja have 1.70 odds, Paripesa have 1.84 odds and 1xBet have 1.84 odds.
Celtic have freely scored goals throughout their season; they’ve found the net 25 times in six league games, averaging just over four goals per game. The Bhoys scored 17 goals in their last three matches alone. Due to their ability to bag goals, most of Celtic’s matches have been on the high-scoring side; five of their last six matches went above the 2.5 goal mark, including their last three. In like manner, Real Madrid is amongst the highest-scoring sides in La Liga; they’ve scored 11 times in four league games, averaging almost three goals per game. Just like tonight’s opponents, Carlo Ancelotti’s men have seen their fair share of high-scoring games as their last four matches all went over 2.5. On that note, these teams should score at least three goals between them. Bet9ja have 1.62 odds, Paripesa have 1.70 odds and 1xBet have 1.70 odds.
This would be the first meeting between both sides ever and we are expecting an entertaining match. Benfica is unbeaten in the league with three games and three wins already in the league. All three fixtures ended with an over 2.5 goals outcome. Maccabi is also enjoying a 100% start to their league campaign and has emphatically gotten wins with all their games ending with over 2.5 goals. Both sides have a lot of attacking threats and now face each other in their first group stage game. Bet9ja have 1.48 odds, Peripesa have 1.49 odds and 1xBet have 1.49 odds.
Sevilla and Manchester City have a history in this tournament with Manchester City coming out on top on both occasions with the score line producing an over 2.5 goal outcome. Four out of the last five games involving Manchester City in the Premier League have made over 2.5 goals with Sevilla having the same outcomes. This seems to be an easy pick for over 2.5 goals with the Sevilla defense not having what it takes to stop this Manchester City side. Bet9ja have 1.62 odds, Paripesa have 1.73 odds and 1xBet have 1.73 odds.
The Norwegian Striker is undoubtedly the best now in the English Premier League. He has a good record in the UCL having scored 23 goals in 19 games in the competition he enjoys playing in the UCL. He is currently on a four-goal scoring streak for Manchester City and he will extend it in today’s game. Bet9ja have 1.75 odds while Paripesa have 1.80 odds.
Dortmund captain Marco Reus has four goal contributions across his last five games (G2, A2) and scored three goals across his last three UCL group appearances. Dortmund doesn’t have a lot of goal scorers this term with their main striker missing due to injury. The German has stepped up to the occasion and now looks more like a goal threat. Bet9ja have 2.50 odds while Paripesa have 2.60 odds.
The best player in the UCL last season has to be included here. He led his side to the title last season and now could help Real Madrid retain the title. He has started the season fairly with four goals scored for Madrid this season in five games. He would surely be looking to replicate his form from last season when he scored 15 goals and won the golden boot. Bet9ja have 1.98 odds while Paripesa have 1.91 odds.
Christopher Nkunku will relish the return to Leipzig’s home ground, having scored in each of their last four home games in all competitions. He is also the designated penalty taker for his side which is an added boost for this selection. He has scored six goals in seven games for Leipzig already this season and he can lead his side to a win today. Bet9ja have 1.95 odds while Paripesa have 1.80 odds.
