Sevilla v Leicester City Betting Tips: No respite for struggling Foxes

Premier League champions Leicester City will be hoping to revive their season when they travel to Spanish high-flyers Sevilla on Wednesday night. Sevilla currently find themselves 3rd in La Liga and only two points off 2nd place Barcelona, however, even if they stay where they are and break that top three in Spain this season then they will have done remarkably well. Sevilla are of course used to winning in Europe and are five-time champions of the Europa League (more than anybody else), winning three of those titles in the last three seasons. They will be looking to transfer this…

Man City v Monaco Betting Tips: Fans in for a goal-filled encounter at Etihad

Two of the competitions more attack-minded sides come together in a match that, with the forward-talent on show, should be an exciting one for the neutral. Scoring plenty of goals is commonplace for these two teams and there’s no reason why this cannot continue to be the case when they face each other. It’s fair to say that both City and Monaco boast a number of exceptionally gifted forward-minded players and this is likely to be a tie where both defences are kept particularly busy. From a betting point of view, goals appear to be a good focal point for…

Bayer Leverkusen v Atlético Madrid Betting Tips: Visitors to prove too strong at BayArena

This Champions League tie does look rather one-sided on the face of it with last season’s finalists Atletico Madrid taking to the field, however, Bayer Leverkusen are a side who should not be discounted. Bayer managed to recover from two consecutive Bundesliga defeats to secure back-to-back victories in their last two league matches, scoring six goals in the process. Unfortunately for them though, they still find themselves down in 8th position in the league. The Germans had a decent group stage in the Champions League and were one of only six teams to go undefeated in their six matches, despite…

Bayern Munich v Arsenal Betting Tips: Hosts can come out on top at Allianz

This match sees two giants of European football take each other on in the early stages of the Champions League knockout rounds as Bayern Munich host Arsenal in this first leg. Bayern paid a heavy price for losing to Russian minnows FC Rostov in the group stage as it meant the German giants finished second in Group D and drew a fierce competitor in Arsenal. Domestically, things have dramatically improved in the last few weeks after a poor start and the champions are now once again sitting on top of the Bundesliga after a  run of no defeats in nine…

Real Madrid v Napoli Betting Tips: Italians can acquit themselves well at Bernabéu

On the face of it, this may appear as a decent draw for Real Madrid, but Napoli are a side who’ve progressed massively this season and, with the hosts not quite at their best right now, the Italian outfit could fare well at the Bernabéu on Wednesday night. From a betting point of view, Real look particularly short at 4/7. Of course, with the Bernabéu crowd behind them, the hosts can be tough to overcome; however, Napoli aren’t to be taken lightly and should have the quality required to cause the hosts plenty of problems. There are two bets favouring the visitors…

Benfica v Dortmund Betting Tips: Portuguese outfit not to be discounted on home soil

As the Champions League begins to whir into action for the second time this season, Portuguese Primiera Liga leaders Benfica play host to German outfit Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday night. On the face of it, this might appeal as a very winnable game for the visitors; however, the Germans haven’t exactly been firing on all cylinders of late, while the hosts are certainly no mugs, that’s for sure. At odds of 11/8, backing the home team on the ‘Draw No Bet’ market looks to be the best option here. Whether it’s in a less fashionable league or not, Benfica have…

PSG v Barcelona Betting Tips: Goals expected at Parc des Princes

The new year means the return of the Champions League and we can finally get into the thick of the competition in these knockout rounds. One of Tuesday’s matches is arguably the most mouth-watering of all the Champions League fixtures in the next few weeks as Paris Saint-Germain host Barcelona at the Parc des Princes. PSG are in fantastic form at the moment having won their last four Ligue 1 matches, however, they are still three points off top of the table Monaco. Having said that, if PSG carry on this form, then there’s every chance that they’ll retain their…

Bayer Leverkusen v AS Monaco Betting Tips

This Group E match is a dead rubber as we already know AS Monaco will top the group whilst Bayer Leverkusen will have to settle for second place. Although they have already qualified for the knockout rounds, Bayer will feel they have got rather lucky after drawing four games out of five. Fortunately for them that fifth match was a win against former qualification rivals Tottenham Hotspur. They will certainly need to improve if they want to have any chance of progressing from the last-16 in the new year. Things have also been faltering a bit domestically with Roger Schmidt’s…

Club Brugge v FC Copenhagen Betting Tips

The pressure is all on FC Copenhagen here as they must win to have any chance of qualifying for the knockout rounds. For Club Brugge this is a dead rubber as they will finish bottom of the group no matter what the result is on Wednesday. Belgian side Club Brugge have gone out with a whimper from Group G and are yet to record a single point from their first five matches. The only motivation Brugge have is to upset the Copenhagen party on Wednesday. Michel Preud’homme’s side are actually doing very well in their domestic league, currently sitting second…

Tottenham Hotspur v CSKA Moscow Betting Tips

Both of these sides have had disappointing Champions League campaigns and neither of them can now make the knockout stages. This match is a battle for that third spot and a Europa League place. After losing their unbeaten run in the Premier League against Chelsea a couple of weeks ago, Tottenham bounced back to claim a 5-0 win against relegation-threatened Swansea City. This result shows that their unbeaten start to the season was probably turning into a hindrance as Spurs simply looked to not lose rather than win. The shackles are now off and that was shown on Saturday. As…

Lyon v Sevilla Betting Tips

There might be some games in the final round of group matches that are almost meaningless, but Lyon v Sevilla isn’t one of them. Both teams are still in with a shout in terms of making the last-16. An exciting contest lies ahead. Of the two it is Sevilla who’re in a more likely position, the visitors require just a point to guarantee safe passage through to the knock-out rounds, but will know that a win could potentially, unlikely as it may seem, send them through as group winners. Lyon, on the other hand, come into this match needing a…

Juventus v Dinamo Zagreb Betting Tips

Juventus may be top of Group H but their work is far from done. The Italian giants know that it’s down to them whether they win the group or not and, against a Dinamo Zagreb team who’ve failed to pick up a single point in the competition, this match provides them with the perfect opportunity to go through in style. From a betting point of view, siding with the hosts is the only way to play this one, and so the bet to be on is ‘Juventus to Win -2 Handicap’. The Old Lady have been in impressive scoring form of…

Paris Saint-Germain v Ludogorets Betting Tips

On the face of it this might seem a pointless match – PSG are through to the knockout rounds, while Ludogorets are definitely out of the competition; however, there is still plenty to play for as the hosts look to cement their position at the top of the group, while a third-place finish for the Bulgarian outfit would mean a place in the Europa League. Unsurprisingly, PSG have made it to the last-16 in relatively comfortable fashion, although, having said this, there is still work to be done if they want to make it there as group winners and thus…

Benfica v Napoli Betting Tips

As things stand, Group B is one of the tighter groups in the Champions League and as we approach the final match-day there are still three teams who’s qualification hopes are still very much alive. Both Benfica and Napoli know that a win guarantees them top spot, but anything less could mean elimination from the competition. At the same time, though, a draw could see both through, but this largely depends on the result in Kiev – if Besiktas secure three points in Ukraine then they’ll have booked their place in the last-16, such is the tightness at the top…

FC Basel v Arsenal Betting Tips

This is a winner takes all for both teams as FC Basel have to better Ludogorets’s result to qualify for the Europa League whilst Arsenal need to better Paris Saint Germain’s to secure first spot and earn that precious seeding in the knockout rounds. Basel currently sit bottom of Group A but are only behind Bulgarian side Ludogorets on goal difference so a draw against Arsenal, with Ludogorets likely to lose against PSG, should see them clinch that Europa League spot. Urs Fischer’s side are obviously top of the Swiss Super League and are a huge 12 points clear of…

PSV Eindhoven v FC Rostov Betting Tips

This Group D clash is a winner takes all between PSV Eindhoven and FC Rostov as they battle for third spot and a place in the Europa League. Dutch side PSV are not having an ideal season by any means. The 2015/16 Eredivisie champions are quite a bit off the pace in Holland, currently sitting in third, three points off Feyenoord and top spot. Additionally, the Champions League campaign has not gone to plan and Phillip Cocu will no doubt have expected his team to finish in the Europa League spot, however, that is now in serious doubt. The Red…

Rotherham United v Leeds United Betting Tips

Saturday’s late Championship kick-off is a Yorkshire derby between Rotherham United and Leeds. These two teams are having vastly different seasons with Rotherham cut adrift at the bottom whilst Leeds are pushing for the play-offs. Never say never but it looks highly unlikely that Rotherham United will survive this season with The Millers currently at the foot of the Championship and a huge 11 points from safety. The season started dreadfully under former manager Alan Stubbs and has remained the same under new boss Kenny Jackett. Rotherham have won just once all season and have lost all but one of…

Celtic v Barcelona Betting Tips

Celtic v Barcelona has become somewhat of a cult European classic over the last few years with some feisty and famous matches contested between the two. Barcelona currently top Group C and can almost guarantee top spot with a victory at Celtic Park whilst Celtic are bottom and are looking to fight for the Europa League place with Borussia Monchengladbach. Of course the previous meeting between these two sides finished in a 7-0 thrashing by Barcelona but this match should be a bit closer. Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers was furious with the way his side wilted in that 7-0 defeat…

FC Rostov v Bayern Munich Betting Tips

This Group D match sees one of the favourites for the Champions League go up against one of the minnows in the competition. Bayern Munich are currently second and already through whilst Rostov are bottom and hoping to beat PSV Eindhoven to the Europa League spot. The first match between these two ended in a 5-0 thrashing by Bayern at the Allianz Arena but this game should be closer. Much like Leicester City, Rostov are clearly prioritising the Champions League this season. This was particularly evident in their last European match away at last year’s runners-up, Atletico Madrid. Rostov played…

FC Copenhagen v FC Porto Betting Tips

Behind Leicester City and their great form in Champions League Group G, we have a good battle for second place hotting up between FC Copenhagen and FC Porto. This match will more than likely be the decider for that second qualification spot. Copenhagen are currently third in the group but have actually done pretty well having lost just the once and even that was just a narrow defeat away at in-form Leicester City. Even though they are currently only in the Europa League spots, you could argue that they have done better than Porto as they have scored five to…

CSKA Moscow v Bayer Leverkusen Betting Tips

Group E is probably the most competitive group in the Champions League this season with just four points separating bottom and the second qualification spot. All of which makes this match very important. CSKA Moscow are the bottom side in the group and deservedly so after putting up another weak performance in European football. Just like last season, Leonid Slutsky’s side look completely off the pace at European level and seem to have no ambition in Champions League matches. Of course a lot of this is down to a lack of squad depth and in fact I would even argue…

Leicester City v Club Brugge Betting Tips

The Champions League group stages are drawing to a gradual close and one of the penultimate matches in Group G sees top of the table and already qualified Leicester City take on bottom of the table and pointless Club Brugge. The Foxes have been a strange animal this season, terrible in the league but fantastic in their debut Champions League campaign. Of course many will point to the fact that this is one of the weakest groups in Champions League history, however, Leicester have stuck to their task and comfortably beaten what has been put in front of them. Remarkably,…

Group E is incredibly tight with just three points separating bottom from top. This of course means that each match is incredibly important for all teams, even when first place plays last place as we have in this fixture on Wednesday night. All four teams still have a chance of making it through to the knockout rounds. As well as topping Champions League Group E, Monaco are also doing well in Ligue 1 with Leonardo Jardim ‘s side second place in the league, six points behind surprise leaders Nice and ahead of oil-rich Paris Saint-Germain on goal difference. Monaco are…

Tottenham Hotspur v Bayer Leverkusen Betting Tips

Champions League Group E is incredibly tight with every side likely to be giving themselves a chance of qualification for the last 16. Arguably the two favourites of the group, Tottenham Hotspur and Bayer Leverkusen, meet at Wembley on Wednesday night. It is far too overly-dramatic to say that Tottenham’s season has gone off the rails with Mauricio Pochettino’s side now without a win in five matches in all competitions. Of course this run will be of concern to Spurs fans, but we must remember that they have been picking up points during the course of that run. They are…

FC Copenhagen v Leicester City Betting Tips

A win will see Leicester City qualify for the knockout rounds in their inspirational debut Champions League season, whilst Danish side FC Copenhagen will also be looking to further cement their claim for a last-16 spot with a positive result against the English champions. FC Copenhagen have gone somewhat under the radar during this Champions League campaign. With Leicester City dominating Group G with a 100% record, Copenhagen’s good performances seem to have gone unnoticed. Before their defeat to Leicester City last time out, Stale Solbakken’s side earned a respectable draw away against 2004 Champions League winners Porto before thrashing…

Beşiktaş v Napoli Betting Tips

These two sides faced each other just two weeks ago – a match that saw Beşiktaş come out on top (2-3) in what was a thrilling encounter. Now, back in front of their won fans, the Turkish outfit are fancied to once again get a favourable result. After three matches, Group B is just about as tight as it comes in terms of competition for the top two places. Just two points separate third and first, but Beşiktaş, currently in second position, know that they can put themselves in a commanding position if they come out of this fixture with all three…

Manchester City v Barcelona Betting Tips

The much anticipated second group game between these two is almost upon us and fans/punters should be in for an exciting watch. Many people will probably expect a bit more from the hosts and will also feel that things won’t go so wrong this time around. In truth, they probably won’t and the home team are expected to acquit themselves better; however, from a betting point of view, it’s definitely worth siding with Barcelona, at least in some capacity. At odds of 10/11, ‘Barcelona to Score Over 1.5 Goals’ , is simply too good to miss. It’s rare to get such…
