Bet on Champions League as the second round is coming up once again with some great derbies as well as some other encounters that seem pretty much one-sided. Let’s see the best betting tips for Champions League’s next round!
We will see terrific matches on bot Tuesday and Saturday next week as Borussia Dortmund will host Real Madrid on 27 September, while Bayern Munich will make a trip to Madrid to take on Atletico. However, the other matches seem pretty tempting to bet on Champions League as well. Let’s see more in detail about the best offer at online sportsbooks in the EU!
Bet on Dortmund v Real Madrid
Zinedine Zidane’s men will be favourites at all online sportsbooks against the German side, that’s for sure. However, this time it might be rewarding to place a bet on the underdogs: Dortmund are quite an unpleasant rival for any team and Real Madrid suffered against Sporting Lisbon in the first round: substitute hero Alvaro Morata won the game for his team with a fantastic last minute header.
In addition, Real Madrid will miss 2 key members – Gareth Bale and Casemiro – due to injury, and Cristiano Ronaldo is still not on 100% after returning from his injury. The best odds for Dortmund’s victory are provided by Marathonbet Sportsbook. They set the odds for the underdogs to win at 2.86 (13/7) . Those for the Royal Club are 2.60 (8/5) while the draw pays at 3.50 (5/2) .
Best Champions League betting picks for Tuesday
If you find the battle between the two star teams too much of an unpredictable derby, you might want to bet on the other games of the matchday, since there will be plenty! For example, for the other match of the same group, betting on both teams to score and Sporting to win seems like the best suggestion we could make for this game. Famous online sportsbooks, such as Betfair, for example, would be willing to pay at 2.90 (19/10) odds for this combination!
Another interesting battle will be played between Premier League champions Leicester City and Iker Casillas’ FC Porto. The Englishmen will play home and might seize another victory after trashing Club Brugge by 3-0. The odds for Leicester to win again are 2.15 (23/20) at Betway Sportsbook. Place your bets now!
Bet on Wednesday’s biggest derby: Atletico v Bayern
Carlo Ancelotti knows rather well the opponent side, but the Italian manager didn’t have too much success at Vicente Calderón while he was at the helm of Real Madrid. The question is, is his new team capable of finding ways to open up Diego Simeone’s close-to-perfect defensive wall, or is his team going to suffer once again?
If someone would ask you what the most odd odds in 2016 at online sportsbooks in Germany were there so far this year, one must say the 2.45 (29/20) BetVictor odds for Bayern Munich. However, they will face Atletico de Madrid at Vicente Calderón and we all know how Diego Simeone’s men can defend. The most likely outcome is a 0-0 for 8.00 (7/1) odds at Bet365 since Atletico won’t force the attacking game too much, and Bayern might remain incapable of scoring against them, even after an incredible 5-0 victory in the first round.
Bet on PSV and PSG
FK Rostov are to host PSV Eindhoven in hopes of not worsening their goal difference anymore – they were humiliated by Bayern Munich in the first round and are in desperate need of proving for their own supporters at home that they do deserve a place in the Champions League group stages. However, the away team is more likely to win and their 2.40 (7/5) odds at Betway seem pretty tempting.
Betting on PSG is not only a good idea because they are just one-letter away from being PSV. They are also quite an important member of the top European football clubs ever since Carlo Ancelotti has started working there and by today they are expected to easily qualify for the next round. PSG will need the 3 points as they tied in the previous round against Arsenal, and Ludogorets are not likely to be able to keep them from winning. Bet on Over 3,5 goals to be scored for 3.20 (11/5) at 32Red Sportsbook.
