The UEFA Champions’ League group stages are at their halfway point with many of the qualification places in each pool up for grabs. With so many teams vying for a place in the latter stages of Europe’s elite competition it promises to be yet another fascinating round of fixtures and here are our Champions’ League predictions.
Manchester United dominate Group A having won their opening 3 matches in this year’s competition – scoring 8 goals and conceding 1 in the process. Their next fixture in the group stages is a home clash against Benfica, a side they squeezed past in October thanks to Marcus Rashford’s controversial winning goal. In terms of Manchester United betting they are 4/11 with Sky Bet to win at home against the Portuguese giants, Manchester United’s odds to win this season’s Champions League are currently 14/1 with Uni Bet whilst domestically Manchester United are 12/1 with Bet 365 to win the Premier League.
Celtic are holding their own in Group B and sit in third place in the standings, behind Paris Saint Germain and Bayern Munich. Both sides beat Celtic heavily in their opening round of fixtures but the Hoops have an instant chance for revenge in November at Celtic Park with another meeting with the German giants. Celic’s odds are 11/1 with Marathon Bet to pull off a famous victory and keep their hopes of qualification from the group alive.
Antonio Conte’s Chelsea are top of Group C following a 3-3 draw with Roma last time out and they travel to the Italian capital in November looking to claim the points needed to secure their progress to the knockout stages. Chelsea’s odds are 6/4 to beat Roma and Chelsea betting in this match represents good value with both teams in fine form – a goal prediction of both teams to score in the match is best priced at 8/15 with Ladbrokes.
Liverpool’s odds of qualifying from Group E have significantly improved following their 7-0 thumping of Maribor last time out – 8/13 with Betway. Liverpool betting on this match doesn’t represent great value at 1/28 with Sporting Bet although Jurgen Klopp’s men have struggled domestically and the current Liverpool title odds are 80/1 with Bet Victor.
Manchester City have a perfect record in Group F, having won their opening 3 games and their current Champions League betting odds are 13/2 with Coral. The Blues travel to Napoli next in a tough fixture and the Manchester City odds are 29/20 with Boyle Sports to win the game. City are the only unbeaten team in the English Premier League and Manchester City’s odds to win the league are currently 1/4 with Sky Bet.
Tottenham’s Champions’ League odds were greatly enhanced by their draw with Real Madrid in October and the two teams are due to lock horns once again in November as Gareth Bale returns to the club he made his name at. Tottenham’s odds for the game are 9/4 with Betfair to get the win – good value when it comes to Champions League betting. The football betting prediction for this game is for Tottenham vs Real Madrid to contain over 2.5 goals in the game at 2/5 with William Hill.
Leicester City are not taking part in this season’s Champions League and the current Leicester City odds are 16/1 with Paddy Power for Leicester to be relegated whilst Leicester City’s odds of winning the Premier League again are 2500/1 with Bet Victor.
The weekend football fixture predictions contain some Championship Betting. Wolves sit 2 points clear at the top of the Championship and are 21/20 with Sporting Bet to go to QPR and get a victory as part of this week’ sure win football prediction.
