Tuesday Champions League Bet: Dortmund and Madrid to Outscore Each Other
We are back again to midweek matches, but this night belongs to the big one; the Champions League. And there are some exciting games for you punters out there to stake on tonight including the game of the night, Borussia Dortmund vs Real Madrid. Without deviating from the nitty gritty of today, here are the 8 Champions League football matches to stake on…
Borussia Dortmund vs Real Madrid – GG (Both teams to score)
This is going to be the third consecutive yellow team the defending champions will be facing in the last one week, will they be third time lucky? A tough ask. Their opponent tonight have amassed 20 goals in their last four games in all competitions (phew!). But one thing has been consistent with the yellow team from Germany; they’ve conceded in three of those four aforementioned games. And facing a Madrid team who boast of the Champions League highest goalscorer ever in their ranks, Dortmund will definitely continue that trend of conceding. So both teams scoring against each other tonight wouldn’t be a farfetched stake.
Monaco vs Bayern Leverkusen – 1 (Monaco to win)
I’m just going to drop some few facts to back up this bet; Monaco are unbeaten in their four previous competitive encounters with Bayer Leverkusen, all in the Champions League (3 wins and a draw), Leverkusen have won just twice in their last 23 away games in the Champions League, the German side are also winless in their last six Champions League games, and Monaco are unbeaten in six home games this season (winning 5) in all competitions.
Sevilla vs Lyon – 1 (Sevilla to win)
Sevilla have been imperious at home in the last couple of seasons; they’ve won 14 of their last 16 home games in Europe, keeping a clean sheet in nine of those games and drawing the other two. But they have an equally poor away record, especially in the league; they have not won in 22 away La Liga games. Meanwhile, Lyon have had a yo-yo start to the season, winning and losing an equal amount of matches. This stake for this game should work tonight judging from Sevilla’s impeccable home record in Europe.
Sporting CP vs Legia Warsaw – 1 (Sporting to win)
It’s official, Legia Warsaw will be the whipping boys in this group. They were mauled 6-0 at home by high-flying Dortmund in the first game of the Champions League, they are bound to lose all their six group games (God knows what Real Madrid is going to do when they meet). Sporting have had an impressive start to the season, they’ve won all their home games this season. No doubt this could be another mauling for the Polish side tonight.
CSKA Moscow vs Tottenham – GG (Both to score)
Want to know why this is a sure banker stake? Check this out; CSKA have conceded in each of their last 23 Champions League matches since 2011 and Tottenham have scored in all their competitive games this season.
Dinamo Zagreb vs Juventus – 2 (Juventus to win)
Expect the Old Lady of Turin to bounce back from their first game home draw against lowly rated Croatia side, Dinamo Zagreb tonight. The latter have only won just one out of their last 10 games in the Champions league, although, that win came against Arsenal last season.
FC Copenhagen vs Club Brugge – (Copenhagen to score)
I’m going to go easy on this one, due to the unpredictability of both teams. Copenhagen have scored in all their competitive home games this season making this stake the easiest on this list.
Leicester City vs FC Porto – over 2.5 (Game to end with more than 2 goals)
New boys and Premier League Champions, Leicester enjoyed a dream start to the Champions League, pummeling Brugge 3-0 away. Now they face a much sterner test in their first game at home to two time European Champions, Porto. Both teams have been involved in quite a lot of games ending in more than two goals this season. In both their last games, Leicester lost 4-1 to Manchester United while Porto beat Boavista at home by 3-1. So choosing this stake is a shrewd choice.
Like you’ve seen above, a ₦1000 stake on this combination of 8 games will guarantee you a whopping amount of ₦54,775. Enough to get you that new smartphone you’ve always coveted. Maybe you can only afford to stake with just ₦500, not to worry, that will still get you ₦29,248… quite an amount if you ask me.
Good luck guys… have a punt day!
