IT was a decent night in the Champions League with eight of my 10 suggested bets winning.
I’m hoping to do as well on Wednesday and start with Arsenal who are at home to Basel. I watched Arsenal v Chelsea game on Saturday and the Gunners were superb.
I was really impressed as they raced into a 3-0 lead with some scintillating football and while the Swiss are a decent side who have started the season well they won’t be able to live with that type of football.
Arsenal of course are short to win at a best 4-11 with Ladbrokes so let’s turn to goals. They have netted 11 in their last three games so try Arsene Wenger’s men to net 3+ at 23-20 with McBookie. I also fancy over 3.5 match goals at 7-5 with Stan James.
Biggest game of the night is a repeat of last season’s semi-final with Atletico Madrid hosting Bayern Munich. Atletico won 1-0 in the Vicente Calderon and have kept five clean sheets in a row in the Champions League at home.
Bayern know the Spaniards are tough to beat and will once again fear Antoine Griezmann. The Euro 2016 star netted in that 1-0 win and has scored five goals in five league games.
Carlo Ancelotti replaced Pep Guardiola and has made the same impact at Bayern as the Spaniard has at Man City. The Italian is the first boss to win his first eight games and he’s a multiple Champions League winner who will get his tactics spot on tonight.
I’ve got to favour Bayern on their revenge mission but will keep the draw on side and go Bayern draw no bet at 3- with McBookie.
PSG travel to Ludogerets with mixed domestic form. They lost to Toulouse 2-0 last time out after going down to 10 men and should get the better of the Bulgarians. Best bet here could be Edinson Cavani to score at 13-5 with Paddy Power and McBookie.
Napoli and Benfica are two sides who have started the season well but the Portuguese travel without several players including start striker Jonas. With home advantage Napoli could edge this and are a best . Polish hitman Arkadiusz Milik is 11-10 at William Hill to score.
Bets to Consider
Arsenal to score 3+
Sanchez to score first
Bayern draw no bet
Cavani to score
