Champions League Betting Tips
FC Red Bull Salzburg v Liverpool – KO 5.55pm
It can’t get any more simple that this, Liverpool need to avoid defeat at the hands of Salzburg to go through to the knock out stage of the Champions League. Salzburg’s star striker Erling Haaland cause Liverpool a lot of trouble at Anfield and they can still go through if they beat Klopp’s men.
Salzburg are the third highest scoring team in the grope stage this season just being Bayern Munich and Spurs. When you take into account that their only defeats this season have come at the hands of Napoli, which they where very unlucky to lose that game and the loss at Anfield, you can easily see them put it up to the Premier league leaders tonight.
On the face of it this is a very difficult game for Liverpool and I can see Salzburg putting Liverpool under a lot of pressure. You can be sure that there is going to be lots of goals in this game this is what i think is the bet of the game.
Best Bet – Both Teams To Score, over 2.5 goals & over 7.5 corners @ 3/1
Score Prediction – Salzburg 2-2 Liverpool @ 10/1
Chelsea v Lille – KO 8.00pm
Over the past few weeks Chelseas form has dipped just a little but this is a game where this young Chelsea team can get back on track. A win will be enough for Frank Lampard youngsters to go through and that itself is a great achievement when you consider the lack of Champions League experience in the squad.
Lille are not a bad side in their own right but Chelsea should hold to many guns for the French side.
Chelsea have won their last five home games in the Champions League and they will make it six from six tonight.
Pulisic should score, but when you can get the same price as two shots on target, that seems a safe route to glory since the American loves cutting in and shooting – he’s had three shots and one goal in two Champions League games and now faces the weakest team in the group at home.
Best Bet – Pullsic to have 2+ shots on target @ 11/8
Score Prediction – Chelsea 2-0 Lille @ 6/1
Inter v Barcelona – KO 8.00pm
Possibly the mist fascinating clash of the night in which already confirmed group winners Barcelona take on Inter Milan in the San Siro. Inter will need to match or better Dortmunds result against Slavia Prague to make it through to the last 16, which you would think will be a win.
As Barca are already through you would be expecting them to make a few changes tonight and the bookies are alive to that by having Barcelona as big as 9/2 to win.
Inter have scored twice in four of their last five home games and have lost just once, to Juventus, on home turf since March, so it’s hard to even envisage a much-changed Barcelona line-up being able to make many inroads into a desperate team that’s so powerful at home.
The Italians almost came unstuck in their home game against Slavia, but that was the wake-up call they needed and they kept Dortmund out in a 2-0 win against the Germans – that sounds about right here against a makeshift Barcelona side that has nothing to play for.
Best Bet – Inter Milan -1 @ 2/1
Score prediction – Inter 2-0 Barcelona @ 8/1
