You can bet on any other player as well, but let’s face it: if anyone is capable of acing 3 goals in the Champions League knockout stage, it’s Leo Messi.
Bet on Aubameyang to be the hero of the day!
The Benfica v Dortmund derby is not even close to be as expected as the other match on Tuesday. However, there still might be some interesting events on the game. Online sportsbooks in Germany expect BVB to secure the qualification already on the first leg. Aubameyang can be crucial in that.
