UEFA Champions League: Best three-fold picks to follow for Tuesday
Continental football for gameweek three kicks off in Europe this week, and we have exciting football matches to draw our betting picks from on Tuesday
SALZBURG vs BAYERN MUNICH
Bayern Munich travel to Salzburg aiming to stretch their winning streak in UEFA Champions League to 14 games.
The Bavarians were troubled by Lokomotiv last week, but a moment of brilliance from the feet of Joshua Kimmich handed them a much needed 2-1 win and sent them to top of the table.
The team managed by Hans-Dieter Flick have now won 13 Champions League games on the bounce having thrashed Atletico Madrid 4-0 on matchday 1.
Salzburg on the other hand were unlucky to lose to Atletico Madrid 2-3 and at one point looked better than the Spaniards. The team managed by Jesse Marsch remains a constant threat on the attacking front, at the same time they tend to concede a lot of goals. This is the reason why they cannot win against teams with quality players. They will start Tuesday’s match from the foot of the table with 1 point from 2 games.
Without a doubt, this is Bayern’s game to win and any other result will be a huge surprise.
We are ruling out any surprises since Jesse Marsch’s style of play suits the Germans, unlike Lokomotiv who sit deep patiently before launching the counter attack.
Anyhow, Bayern can be vulnerable at the back and there will be goals since Salzburg averaged 4.2 goals per game at this ground from 5 home matches played so far this season. We will be going for the BTTS option here which is priced at 10/23 odds by Bet365.
REAL MADRID vs INTER MILAN
Real Madrid lock horns with Inter Milan for their Champions League clash on Tuesday, with both teams aiming for their first win of the season in the competition.
It took late goals from Casemiro and Benzema for the Los Blancos to rescue a humiliating defeat at Gladbach, yet they remain without a win in 4 Champions League games. Having lost 2-3 to Shakhtar on matchday 1, Zidane’s men remain at the foot of the table with 1 point from 2 games.
On the other hand, Inter were probably the better side in their away match at Shakhtar, yet rue several missed chances by Lukaku and settled for a goalless draw. They too drew Gladbach 2-2 in the previous game with a very late goal.
Real had a similar start to their group stage campaign last season, but picked up 3 wins and a draw to finish second behind PSG.
Antonio Conte’s men were eliminated from the competition last term, falling behind Dortmund and Barcelona. Yet they went on to make it as far as the finals of Europa League.
A draw will be good for both teams depending on the result of Shakhtar Donetsk vs Monchengladbach. But regardless of that result, the loser here will be staring at group stage elimination.
This is almost a do-or-die match for both teams after failing to win back-to-back games against underdog teams. Without a doubt, betting on full time result is risky considering both Real and Inter have been inconsistent throughout the season.
The Merengues managed just 2 wins from their last 5, though things look a bit better with the return of Eden Hazard, evident from the 2 late goals at Gladbach and then in the 4-1 win against Huesca on the weekend.
On the other hand, Inter’s weekend 2-2 stalemate with Parma left them with just 1 win in the last 6.
However, these teams are stacked with some world class attacking players and rarely consistent in the defense, that’s why the BTTS and ov2.5 option looks the best pick from this match priced at 5/7 odds by Novibet.
LOKOMOTIV MOSCOW vs ATLETICO MADRID
Atletico Madrid travel to Lokomotiv Moscow hoping to bag their second win of the Champions League 2020-21 campaign.
Last week saw Diego Simeone’s team engaged in a thrilling contest at the Wanda Metropolitano against the RB Salzburg. Joao Felix rescued the day and three points and the 3-2 win helped them to move up to second in the table behind Bayern who thrashed them 4-0 on matchday 1.
Lokomotiv, with 1 point are joined at the bottom by Salzburg and they must secure at least a point on Tuesday to remain in contention for knockout phase qualification.
The teams did well against Bayern last week, but undone by a brace from Joshua Kimmich. The 1-2 defeat came on the back of a 2-2 draw at Salzburg on matchday 1.
The overall form of Lokomotiv does look bad and they are without a win in 4 games across all competition, 3 losses and 1 draw.
Atletico do not have the defensive stability they used to have in previous seasons and they have conceded 7 goals in the last 4 matches. Lokomotiv despite win-less in their last 4 saw both teams scoring in those matches.
Moreover, they created around 15 chances in the 1-2 defeat here to Bayern and thus we can expect goals at either ends and the best option will be the over 2.5 goals priced at 9/10 odds by Bwin.
