Nov 24: Champions League Betting Preview


A DRAW between Bayern Munich and Olympiakos will send both through to the last 16 of the Champions League and send Arsenal crashing.

Do bookies reckon there will be a carve-up? Not at all with the stalemate paying as much as 9-1 with bet365.

If this was an Italian league game for example where both teams needed a draw it would be a draw with the price starting out at something like 1-2.

But in this case bookies reckon integrity will win the day and that’s good news for Arsenal who will hope Bayern win and they can go to Athens with it all to play for.

Arsenal have had a disastrous campaign and trail Bayern Munich and Olympiakos by six points with two rounds to go. Bayern are 1-7 with William Hill and Ladbrokes  while Arsenal are just as short at 2-9 with McBookie and others.

It’s often tough to find value on the Champions League and a treble on Chelsea at Maccabi Tel-Aviv, Arsenal and Bayern pays a best 4-5 at Paddy Power.

If they’re on form the Gunners should cover the minus one handicap and that pays 4-6 at Skybet. But it’s a big if after they were beaten at West Brom at the weekend.

Bayern’s first goal usually comes from Robert Lewandowski (11-4, McBookie) or Thomas Muller (15-4, McBookie) and Arjen Robben is back to make his claim. He is also 15-4.

Victory away to Maccabi Tel-Aviv will send Chelsea through and the vibes coming out of Stamford Bridge are better than they were before the international break. Jose Mourinho got the win he needed against Norwich at the weekend and it was more convincing than the 1-0 scoreline suggested.

They hammered the Israelis at home so while a best price of 4-11 with McBookie won’t tempt look at Chelsea minus two Asian (money back if they win by two) at 9-5 with bet365. And I’m taking a chance of Diego Costa to score first at 7-2 with bet365.

The Spain star looked more like his old self with a super winner against Norwich and it’s a case of more of the same please.

In the other Group G game Porto entertain Dynamo Kiev having gone top with back-to-back wins against Maccabi. Andre Villas-Boas’s side should win to wrap up qualification and set up a Stamford Bridge shootout for top spot. They are 4-6 at William Hill.

Barcelona were sublime against Real Madrid on Saturday night and if they repeat that display Roma will be running for cover. Back Barca at 3-10 with Betfred and consider them to score three or more goals at 5-6 with Betfred.

The other tie sees BATE Borisov host Bayer Leverkusen and if either wins they’ll leapfrog Roma into second spot as long as the Italians lose.

BATE play for the first time since ending clinching the Belarus title for the 10th time in a row. Their only points in Group E have come at home to Roma while Bayer’s sole win was 4-1 at home to BATE.

The Germans, however, were unlucky to take just one point in two classics with Roma and are hot favourites at 3-4 with Coral.

In Group H Zenit are already through but must beat Valencia at home in one of the early kick-offs to give Ghent a chance of qualifying by beating Lyon away.

Lyon are looking for the same result in Russia but having won one point from their first four games they need a miracle to qualify.

      burnsi92, simply because they’re Real Madrid.
      You rarely get value on the big names.

    Very nearly took the Barca Over 2.5 as a single myself Mr F but surely the Russians can avoid defeat at home where temperatures are set to be in the minus.
