The big Champions League game this week takes place in Spain, where Barcelona host Chelsea in what is sure to be a great game. After a 1-1 tie in the first game between these two, the Barcelona betting odds show they are favourites for the clash, although the odds on Chelsea to win will appeal to many people. I expect to see a more open game this time around, the first game was a close and defensive game, but I think we will see some goals here, which will be great for the neutrals who are watching.
The first game ended 1-1 at Stamford Bridge and immediately Barcelona tips began to fly in for this game. The first game was even, and with home advantage for this one, it is expected by many that Barcelona will be able to win and progress to the next round. The Chelsea odds to win Champions League are huge at the moment, and those who think they can do it should back them now, because they will shorten dramatically if they can pull off a famous win inside the Nou Camp on Wednesday.
Odds on Chelsea to Win
Chelsea are priced up at 7/1 to win this game with William Hill, which shows that the bookmakers think they have little chance of winning the game. They will feel that their best chance to win the game was in the first leg, something they couldn’t do at home, but they have to still believe they can win here, and pull off what would be a huge shock.
One thing that will concern Chelsea fans and those who are taking the Chelsea odds today is that they have not been playing too well in the Premier League recently. They have won just two of their last five games, and must show a lot more here if they are to overturn the might of Barcelona.
The price of 7/1 on offer with William Hill is huge, but it does show the chances of Chelsea winning this game are relatively slim.
Barcelona Betting Odds
Barcelona are priced up as the favourites to win this game with every bookmaker putting them in at a very short price and it is no surprise to see that. Bettson have Barcelona odds of 6/13 for the game and they are the best odds available on a home victory. They were perhaps a little unlucky not to win the first game, but with home advantage they look to have a great chance of winning this one.
The latest Barcelona odds on them to win the Champions League are shortening all the time, and if you want to back them to win the tournament I suggest you do it before this game takes place. A Barcelona win here and their Champions League odds will shorten even further.
Free Football Tips of the Day
With home advantage it looks highly likely that Barcelona will be able to win this game and qualify for the next round of the Champions League. As far as Champions League betting tips go this week, Barcelona to beat Chelsea is the strongest tip that I have right now, and I am very confident they can record a victory here.
The first game between these two was very tight as Chelsea tried to stop Barcelona from playing football. I expect them to try and do the same again, but this time around with the home crowd behind them, Barcelona will be able to find a way past. The home team have a lot of attacking talent, as the Barcelona betting odds suggest, and I am confident that they will be able to find a way past Chelsea and into the next round.
The best price on offer for a Barcelona bet is 6/13 with Betsson and that is the tip from me, a comfortable night for Barcelona and a victory that puts them into the next round of the Champions League.
