Benfica v CSKA Moscow Betting Tips: Home side to come through with ease

These two Group A participants are both seen as likely title challengers in their domestic leagues, however, things have not got off to the best of starts for either of them with neither of them sitting top of their respective league tables. In terms of the Champions League, it looks like these two will be battling it out for the second spot qualification behind Manchester United. Despite an unbeaten start to the season, Benfica are currently down in third in the Portuguese Primeira Liga and two points off top spot. However, with them being the reigning champions, as well as the…

Manchester United v FC Basel Betting Tips: Home side to record conservative victory

This Group A match sees the favourites of the group host the least fancied team as Manchester United take on Basel. Manchester United are still top of the Premier League table despite their frustrating 2-2 draw with Stoke at the weekend. Although this Champions League campaign is United’s first since 2015, they are more than used to this level of competition. The two goals that Jose Mourinho’s side conceded in that aforementioned draw at Stoke were the first two that they had conceded in a competitive match this season. In terms of the forward line, things are also going swimmingly…

CSKA Moscow v BSC Young Boys Betting Tips: Muscovites to see job through

One of Wednesday’s Champions League fixtures sees CSKA Moscow take on Swiss side BSC Young Boys. The first leg of this tie ended in rather hilarious, yet unfortunate, circumstances for Young Boys as defender Kasim Nuhu headed into his own net in the 91st minute. After a poor start to the season, CSKA have recovered in the last few weeks to record three wins in their last four games. Their improved form, particularly domestically, has put them fourth in the Russian Premier League table. The Army Men have traditionally been known for having a solid backline but offering little in…

Hapoel Be’er Sheva v Maribor Betting Tips: Both teams to profit in Beersheba

Having come through a rather up and down tie against Ludogorets in the last round, Hapoel Be’er Sheva are now just one two-legged tie away from entering the Champions League proper for the first time in their existence. Slovenian side Maribor, who’re also bidding to make it through the group stages for the first time in their history, are all that stands in the way. Given the circumstances, this really is a huge occasion for both teams and so expect each of them to be raring to go. During qualifying so far, these two teams have created positive impressions. Both…

APOEL Nicosia v Slavia Prague Betting Tips: Goals at both ends expected at GSP Stadium

For many of the sides involved in the Champions League play-offs, this week’s round of matches will be their first taste of European football this season, but this is not the case for APOEL nor Slavia Prague. Both of these two teams have been involved in something of a summer slog as far as European football goes. In order to be involved in this final play-off tie, both have had to come through previous rounds; APOEL have already come through against both Dudelange and FC Viitorul while Slavia Praga got the better of BATE in the last round. From a…

Hoffenheim v Liverpool Betting Tips: Hosts to give Reds plenty to think about in Sinsheim

After watching his side make something of a shaky start in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon, Jurgen Klopp takes his men to Germany on Tuesday night to face Hoffenheim, one of last season’s surprise packages, not just in Germany but Europe on the whole, in the Champions League play-off. The German, who is no stranger to the Rhein-Neckar-Arena having visited it numerous times during his spell managing in the Bundesliga, will be hoping his team can acquit themselves better than they did at Vicarage Road just a few days ago. After all, if The Reds perform as they did…

Rijeka v Salzburg Betting Tips: Both teams to find the net once again

Another of Wednesday’s Champions League qualifiers that is balanced on a knife edge is the fixture between Rijeka and Salzburg. Having drawn 1-1 last week, both teams are still in with a chance of making it through to the next round. Rijeka do hold a narrow advantage as things stand having scored an away-goal last week but that could all change if Salzburg score here, especially if they were to draw first blood. Both teams were expected to score in this fixture last week and they kindly obliged. Failing to score isn’t exactly a speciality of either side and so…

Ajax v Nice Betting Tips: Shortage of goals unlikely at Amsterdam Arena

After a 1-1 draw in the French Riviera last week, this is one of the many Champions League ties that are finely poised ahead of the second-leg. As things stand, it is probably Ajax who’re the happier of the two teams as they both avoided defeat and got on the score-sheet away from home. Having said that, Nice will be pleased that they restricted the Dutch to just the one away-goal last week and will know that all it takes is an away-goal of their own to turn things in the Dutch capital. As we saw last week, both of these…

Ludogorets v Hapoel Be’er Sheva Betting Tips: Goals at both ends likely

Having both lost the game and failed to score away from home last week, Ludogorets have very much set themselves up for something of a uphill struggle; however, with 90 minutes left to play on their own patch, the Bulgarian outfit might still fancy their chances of going through to the next round. For Hapoel, it was a case of getting the job done in the first-leg and it’s fair to say that the Israeli’s come into this second fixture with the upper hand. Although they essentially came away from last week’s fixture with nothing, Ludogorets’ performance wasn’t without a…

Salzburg v Rijeka Betting Tips: Goals at both ends on the cards at Red Bull Arena

After cruising to victory against Maltese side Hibernians in the last round, Salzburg are back in Champions League action on Wednesday evening as they welcome Croatian side Rijeka to the Red Bull Arena. The visitors also came through the last round with plenty in hand and so an interesting match lies in store here. As the hosts, and probably the better known side, at least to a wider audience, Salzburg come into this match as warm favourites. The Austrians were comfortable winners on their own patch last time out and have a strong home record to boot; however, their opponents,…

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’.
