Qarabag FK v Sheriff Tiraspol Betting Tips: Home side to come out on top in high scoring encounter

This Champions League qualifying match is an all-Eastern European affair as Qarabag of Azerbaijan take on Sheriff Tiraspol of Moldova. Qarabag came through their previous qualifier against Samtredia of Georgia with ease as they ran out 6-0 aggregate winners. Last season they won the Azeri league at a canter, finishing top of the table with a ten-point gap over Gabala in second and, although it has not started yet, they are the favourites to win the title this time around as well. As mentioned in my winning tip for their last match against Samtredia, Gurban Gurbanov’s side have had little…

AEK Athens v CSKA Moscow Betting Tips: Uneventful first half expected in Athens

This Champions League match is the first European fixture of the season for both AEK Athens and CSKA Moscow. Not only is this AEK’s first European match of this season, but it is also their first competitive outing this campaign. Although they have done very well in their pre-season matches, with no defeats in their five friendlies, there is nothing like competitive football and so it will be interesting to see how AEK adjust. The Yellow-Blacks actually finished fourth in the regular Greek Superleague season last term but then blitzed the Greek UEFA playoffs to finish top of the group…

F91 Dudelange v APOEL Nicosia Betting Tips: Experience to pull Cypriots through

Despite the fact that APOEL hold a 1-0 lead going into this second leg, some bookmakers are not leaning very heavily towards the Cypriot side as they travel to Luxembourg. F91 Dudelange won the Luxembourg National Division title on goal difference for the second season running last term to ensure passage to the Champions League. Despite the fact they are clearly a European minnow, they have done remarkably well to keep themselves in this tie by losing by just the one goal margin to APOEL last week. Dino Toppmoller’s side were sublime in both attack and defence last season with…

Celtic v Linfield Betting Tips: No hope for the visitors

With Celtic already holding a 2-0 lead going into the second leg of this tie, this qualifier is pretty much done and dusted with Celtic likely to now go through to the next stage. Value on the market is hard to find for this match but there are a couple of options if you look carefully. Although we are entering a new season, you cannot escape Celtic’s fantastic form last year which saw them win the Scottish title at a canter, breaking several records along the way. The challenge for The Hoops now is to make a bigger impact in…

FC Astana v FK Spartaks Jurmala Betting Tips: Home side to get the job done

This match is quite finely balanced with Astana currently holding a 1-0 advantage over Spartaks Jurmala. However, this will undoubtedly be a tough match for the Latvian side. Astana have been in fantastic form in this 2017 Kazakh season and they currently top the Kazakhstani Premier League, looking like they will win their fourth consecutive title. This is particularly evident given their recent run which has seen them win their last six matches on the bounce. Stanimir Stoilov’s side have been particularly good at the back in recent times with five clean sheets in their last six matches in all…

FC Samtredia v Qarabag FK Betting Tips: Away side surprisingly well-priced

This Champions League tie is a bit of a dead rubber as the first leg ended in a 5-0 victory for Azerbaijani side Qarabag. Samtredia won their first Georgian title since 1972 in their last season, however, things are not going quite to plan this time around as they currently sit third in the Erovnuli Liga and ten points off the top of the table going into the second half of the 2017 season. Gia Tsetsadze’s men, as personified in that 5-0 thrashing by Qarabag, have been pretty poor in both boxes this campaign. Their Goals For record of just…

Hapoel Be’er Sheva v Budapest Honved Betting Tip: Both teams to have chances at the Turner Stadium

This Champions League qualifying match sees Israeli side Hapoel Be’er Sheva host Hungarian side Budapest Honved. Hapoel are very much the new kids on the block in Israeli football and, after their first title win since 1976 in 2016, they won another successive Israeli title in 2017.  Additionally, they managed to qualify for the Europa League knockout rounds last season before being knocked out by Besiktas. Just like their title-winning campaign of 2015/16, The Camels’ success last season was based on defensive solidity with just 18 goals conceded in 36 league matches over the course of the campaign. However, they…

MSK Zilina v FC Copenhagen Betting Tips: Goals aplenty at Stadion pod Dubnom

This Champions League qualifier sees the champions of Slovakia host the champions of Denmark as MSK Zilina take on FC Copenhagen. Last season was fantastic for MSK Zilina as they won their first Slovak title since 2012, breaking the AS Trencin and Slovan Bratislava monopoly that had taken hold in the intervening years. Zilina did actually reach the Champions League Group Stage back in 2010 but lost all six of their matches, conceding 19 goals in the process. The Shoshons were absolutely incredible at both ends of the pitch in the 2016/17 campaign, scoring 82 (27 more than second-highest goalscorers…

Champions League Final: Familiar territory for both Italy and Spain

The 97/98 Champions League final saw Italian champions Juventus face Real Madrid, who’d recently finished a surprisingly low 4th in La Liga. After all the usual hype, a packed Amsterdam Arena witnessed the pair play out something of a disappointing cat and mouse encounter which saw the Spaniards come out on top by a single goal courtesy of Yugoslavian born striker Predrag Mijatović. Fast forward 19 years and, this time at Cardiff’s Millennium Stadium, these two giants of the game meet again in Europe’s biggest game. This may be the first time since 1998 that this particular pair have met…

Juventus v Real Madrid Betting Tips: Tight game expected in Cardiff

When the Champions League started all the way back in July, we hoped for a final like this which sees two European giants in the form of Juventus and Real Madrid go head-to-head. This final represents a chance for Juventus to win their first ever treble after winning both the league and cup in Italy. They are in fantastic form going into this match in Cardiff having won their last three in all competitions. We all know that Massimiliano Allegri’s side pride themselves on their defensive solidity and it is no surprise that they conceded the fewest goals in Serie…

Atletico Madrid v Real Madrid Betting Tips: No way back for Simeone’s men

This Champions League tie is pretty much over as a contest with Real Madrid leading by a 3-0 score-line. However, Atletico are not the sort of team to lie down and make it easy for the opposition so I expect a competitive match here. Atletico recovered from their Champions League loss to Real Madrid by beating Eibar at the weekend, keeping them in the top three in La Liga. Last week’s match against Real bucked the trend for Atletico as their usually solid defence conceded three goals. However, it was back to business as usual at the weekend as they…

Juventus v Monaco Betting Tips: Italians to further cement their place in Cardiff

As I predicted, Juventus recorded a relatively comfortable victory away at Monaco in the first leg of this Champions League semi-final and many expect them to progress through to the final on Tuesday. This sort of match is all about finding value in the market. Juventus may have only drawn their latest Serie A match against Turin rivals Torino at the weekend, however, they are still eight points clear at the top of the table and look like winning the league for the sixth consecutive year. Even against a free-scoring Monaco side, we saw how resilient Juve are at the…

Monaco v Juventus Betting Tips: Wily visitors can get the job done

Most people would not have predicted that either of these two teams would be in the Champions League semi-finals if asked at the start of the season. However, their performances have more than earned them the right to be here. Out of these two sides, Monaco are certainly the biggest surprise package and their sensational form in Ligue 1 has transferred to Europe’s premier competition. They have won four out of their last five matches in all competitions. The sheer number of goals that Leanardo Jardim’s side have been scoring this season is absolutely incredible and is no doubt the…

Real Madrid v Atlético Madrid Betting Tips: Santiago Bernabéu set for a slow burner

Real have managed to recover from their thrilling El Classico defeat to Barcelona a couple of weeks ago to win their last two La Liga matches and should come into this match with plenty of confidence, while Simeone’s men are never lacking in that department. Unsurprisingly for a side full of immense attacking talent, Real are among the top scorers in La Liga with an incredible 92 goals in just 34 matches whilst they have also found the back of the net in every single match in all competitions so far this campaign. Additionally they are the joint-top scorers in…

Barcelona v Juventus Betting Tips: Italian outfit to complete the job at Camp Nou

After securing a convincing 3-0 victory in Turin last week, Juventus hold all the aces ahead of this second-leg. Even though Barcelona are expected to put up more of a fight on their own patch, the visitors are in such a commanding position that they really ought to be putting this one to bed. Everyone will of course be pointing to the Spaniards somewhat ridiculous turnaround against PSG in the previous round; however, Juventus are a team renowned for their defensive nous and are highly unlikely to allow the hosts an easy ride. The two bets that stand out ahead…

Having conceded three goals in defeat on their own patch in the first leg, Dortmund face a tough task at the Stade Louis II on Wednesday night. With the tie set up the way it is, Monaco are in a strong position and will surely fancy their chances of putting their 3-2 aggregate lead to good use in front of a home crowd. The French side continued to prove their attacking credentials in Germany last week and are fancied to do the same here. The bet that stands out is ‘Monaco to Score Over 1.5 Goals’. Even at the odds-on price…

Real Madrid v Bayern Munich Betting Tips: Hosts to put their aggregate lead to good use

Real Madrid managed to break Bayern’s resolve on their own territory last time out and so go into this game as the favourites to qualify for the next round. However, underestimate the Germans at your peril. Real recorded a narrow 3-2 win over relegation-threatened Sporting Gijon to keep hold of their lead at the top of La Liga and, with a game in hand over rivals Barcelona along with their three-point cushion, they are now favourites to claim the Spanish title. We all know the attacking prowess of Zinedine Zidane’s side and it is no surprise that they have found…

Leicester City v Atletico Madrid Betting Tips: Simeone’s men to prove too good again

This Champions League match is balanced on a knife edge with Atletico taking a slender 1-0 lead into the second leg thanks to a controversial penalty in the first. Craig Shakespeare’s honeymoon period as Leicester manager is certainly over and they have now failed to win in their last three matches in all competitions. However, with the Premier League season nearly over, the majority of Leicester’s focus will now be on European football. The Foxes had scored 15 and conceded just four in Shakespeare’s first six games in charge but that excellence in both boxes has now gone downhill, particularly…

Atletico Madrid v Leicester City Betting Tips: Calderón to be treated to a few goals

Both of these teams will have been pretty happy to have drawn each other in the Champions League quarter finals given the other teams they could have gone up against. This duo will certainly fancy their chances here. Atletico earned a 1-1 draw against league leaders and city rivals Real Madrid at the weekend to extend their unbeaten run to eight in all competitions. Atletico are often known as the underdog but it is well worth noting that they have reached two of the last three European Cup finals. Diego Simeone’s has his side very well drilled and they are…

Bayern Munich v Real Madrid Betting Tips: Tight affair expected at Allianz Arena

This tie between these two European giants is arguably the most intriguing of all the Champions Leauge quarter-finals and is incredibly difficult to call. Bayern recovered from a 1-0 loss to Hoffenheim a week or so ago to beat Borussia Dortmund by a convincing 4-1 score-line to ensure they are still well clear at the top of the Bundesliga with a ten-point cushion. Unsurprisingly, Carlo Ancelotti’s men are top of the charts in both the attacking and defensive statistics in Germany with 71 goals scored and just 15 conceded in 28 games. However, there is a bit of bad news going…

Juventus v Barcelona Betting Tips: Lack of goals expected in Turin

Unlike Tuesday’s other Champions League match, this meeting between two giants of the European game could be quite cagey. Juventus are unsurprisingly top of Serie A and managed to recover from a pretty nightmarish two matches against Napoli in the league and the cup, in which they failed to win, to record a routine 2-0 victory over Chievo at the weekend. Juve have always prided themselves on being a solid defensive unit and it is no surprise that they have the best Goals Against record in Italy with just 20 goals conceded in 31 games. Additionally, they have more clean…

Borussia Dortmund v AS Monaco Betting Tips: Hosts to win a thriller

This Champions League quarter final could be a bit of a goal-fest as Borussia Dortmund host Monaco. Dortmund suffered a heavy loss against Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga at the weekend which means they are now down in 4th place. However, as they nine points ahead of Freiburg in 5th, they should be playing Champions League football again next season. Dortmund decimated Benfica in their previous European match and are feared opposition. Thomas Tuchel’s team are renowned for their goal-scoring ability and it is no surprise that they are the second-highest scorers in the Bundesliga this season with 59 goals…

Monaco v Man City Betting Tips: Citizens can come out on top again

The first leg of this Champions League tie was one of the most entertaining games in the history of the European Cup as it finished 5-3 to Manchester City. Fans at the Stade Louis II will be hoping for more of the same in this second-leg. Monaco have won each of their four matches since that loss to City and are three points clear at the top of Ligue 1. Leonardo Jardim’s side are one of the most attack-minded teams around and have scored an incredible 84 goals in their 29 league matches so far this campaign. Furthermore, they have found…

Atlético Madrid v Bayer Leverkusen Betting Tips: No way back for German outfit

With four away-goals in the bag, not to mention a two-goal aggregate lead, Atlético ought to have this tie all sewn up before a ball has even been kicked at the Vicente Calderón. Having said this, the hosts are still expected to put the final nail in Leverkusen’s Champions League coffin on Wednesday night. When they met in the first-leg, Atléti showcased a real superiority by executing their famous counter-attacking style to good effect. Although Leverkusen did enjoy a few good attacking spells themselves, the Spanish side were a cut above in all honesty. On their own patch, where they’re often at their…

Juventus v Porto Betting Tips: More of the same from hosts in Turin

Having secured what is a commanding two-goal-lead in the away-leg, Juventus are well and truly in pole position to qualify from this tie. It’s unfortunate that Porto had to play with ten men for most of the first-leg – as a result, never really got the chance to put their best foot forward – but that’s how things panned out and the Portuguese outfit now look to have little chance of qualifying from this point. In front of a home crowd, Juventus are an extremely difficult side to get the better of and, with a two goal-cushion, it’s hard to…

Leicester v Sevilla Betting Tips: Andalusians to finish the job at King Power

This Champions League tie looks finely balanced thanks to Leicester’s away goal in Seville a fortnight ago – a 1-0 win will do for the home side here. The previous leg of this tie was of course the last match of Claudio Ranieri’s rein. Former assistant Craig Shakespeare has taken the job on a temporary basis for now and has managed to get the Foxes back on track with two 3-1 wins in two games, putting them three points above the drop-zone. The Premier League champions have found their energy and desire again under the new manager and this was…
