Real Madrid with a chance to go top of Group D

A great win in their opening match away to Inter set Real Madrid perfectly for this season’s UCL campaign. Now they host Moldovan champions Sheriff for the first time ever as they eye to clinch the top spot. Notably, Real had an undefeated start to their season in La Liga as well are playing some very entertaining football under new coach Carlo Ancelotti. 

However, in their last match with Villarreal, Ancelotti’s team struggled to get a shot on goal in the first half. But 11 goals in their two home games in La Liga prior to that game, still makes Real a huge scoring threat. Notably, Benzema is in great form scoring eight goals and assisting seven. In any case on paper it looks like an easy game, still Ancelotti needs to keep his team’s focus high.

Real Madrid key points

  • Real Madrid are undefeated this season in all competitions
  • BTTS happened in four of Real’s last five home matches
  • The average goals scored by Real in their last five home matches is 3.25

Sheriff Tiraspol

Despite being inexperienced in the Champions League, Sheriff Tiraspol pulled off the shock of matchday one. Indeed, the 13-time Moldovan champions’ all 15 players that featured in their 2-0 win against Shakhtar had their debut in the UCL group stage. Now they face another first as Sheriff never played a Spanish side in Europe.

Sheriff are on a 16-match unbeaten run having won 13 and drew three. Moreover, they gunned down Dinamo Zagreb and Red Star Belgrade on their way to the UCL group stage. Hence, the Yellow Blacks are coming into this match with high confidence. In addition, if coach Vernydub adopts an aggressive defensive tactic, his team can irritate Real’s offense.

Sheriff Key Points

  • Sherrif won two of their last five away matches
  • The Yellow Blacks scored in four of their last five matches
  • BTTS happened in Sheriff’s two of their last five away games

Real Madrid vs Sheriff Tiraspol Prediction

There is no doubt that Real Madrid are the overwhelming favorites in this match with 1.11 odds at Vbet. In some matches, Real suffered against teams who played congested defense. Surely Sheriff will play that kind of defense to make life as difficult as possible for the Spanish giants.

With the odds being very low for a Real win, we will look at the total goals market. The bookies are expecting a high-scoring game. Moreover, the over 2.5 goals has odds of just 1.40 at Vbet.

Thus we think we will bet the other way round and bet on the under 3.5 goals.

To explain, we think Sheriff’s style of play will have a big effect on this match. And if the Moldovan team can keep their goal clean in the first half, we may see a low-scoring game.

In conclusion, we will bet on two scenarios that we may see in this match.
