The current holders meet the most successful club in the competition in tonight's intriguing Champions League clash at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea have endured a tumultuous season so far. Success on the pitch has been overshadowed by the furore and banning of Roman Abramovich from owning the club so the Champions League offers Thomas Tuchel's men the chance to write some back-page headlines once more.

But Saturday's 4-1 loss at home to Brentford was a real wake-up call and described as an abject defensive performance, the last thing you need before the likes of Karim Benzema, who has scored 34 goals in 35 appearances, comes calling.

Benzema's record in the Champions League is even more impressive this season, averaging more than a goal per game to cement his place as the foruth highest scorer in the competition, six goals behind Robert Lewandowski. The Frenchman is 7/4 to score anytime tonight and 5/1 to break the deadlock.

Madrid saw off PSG's challenge with a tremendous comeback in the last round but a 4-0 humbling at home to Barcelona two weeks ago was perhaps the wake-up call they needed too. 11/4 feels like a generous price for the away win especially when Chelsea aren't exactly sailing on calm waters at the moment but the fact it's the first leg of two makes the Draw No Bet market a bit more appealing at 11/8.

The night's other Champions League match looks a mismatch according to the bookies. Bayern Munich are just 1/12 to qualify at Villarreal's expense and 8/15 to win on the night.

But the Europa League champions will have something to say about that and cup king Unai Emery knows a thing or two about outfoxing more illustrious opponents. However his Villarreal side managed just one clean sheet in the group stages while Bayern rattled in 22 goals in their six games so Bayern's firepower should previal over the course of the two legs.

The aformentioned Lewandowski is the key danger but he's just 1/2 to score anytime. Instead back him as best bet to net first.

Keep an eye out for Jamie Kennedy's Acca tonight after he landed last night's at just over 9/2 inside the first half. As did Greg MacLean's Bet of the Day, tongiht he's turning his attention to the Bundesliga clash between Augsburg and Mainz.

    🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿Notts Forest v Coventry 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿

    🔘Bet: Forest to score 2+ goals: 26/25 (Unibet) 1/1 (Skybet/Hills/bet365)
    💰5 pts NAP ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    Forest are the form team in the Championship right now. They have an array of attacking talent and are blowing teams away. They’re surging towards the play off spots and with the carrot of premier league football very much a possibility, there’ll be no let up from them tonight.

    Forest have score 11 goals in their last 3 games, including an impressive 1-4 away win at Blackpool last Saturday. They’ve also scored 2+ in their last 5 home games and in 8 of their last 9 home games. In those home games they’ve scored: 3,4,2,2,3,2,0,2,2.

    Coventry, on the other hand, are really falling away and on a downward spiral. After a good start to the season, their threadbare squad is feeling the strain in recent months. They are conceding pretty much every game on their travels; in recent away games they’ve conceded 2+ in 3 of their last 5, all against poor teams (2+ v Cardiff, Reading, Swansea), even conceding 1 v lowly Derby, Bristol city and bottom of the league Peterborough. All those teams are in the bottom half of the league.

    I’m backing a sharp and firing Forest to get 2+ at home in front of a raucous home crowd against a leaky and tired Coventry side tonight.

    Good luck all 👍🏻

    • forshie 1 month ago

      Great reasoning that Kris. I’m waiting on a Forest win in a double with MK Dons 👍🏼

    Burnley v Everton
    Burnley to win at 31/20 (NAP)
    Red card in the game at 9/2
    Massive game for both sides here and Everton come in to this game without Keane who is suspended due to his red card and host of other players missing,probably a game i shouldn’t touch but the players that are missing it’s a big loss for the visitors.Expect Burnley to dig in and grind out a result.Given the nature of the game and the fact Everton are ill disciplined a red card is worth backing also.
    Best of luck

    • SmokeyJoe 1 month ago

      Anorthosis Famagusta are a great price to score 2+ against APOEL in the Cypriot Cup today.

      They’ve won 5/6 of the most recent H2H meetings scoring 2+ in 4 of those wins including thumping them 4-1 on Saturday in a league match at the Antonis Papadopoulos Stadium,they also triumphed 2-0 away too the same team in the league on February 17th

      Famagusta 2+ goals 11/10 is a decent single

    • SmokeyJoe 1 month ago

      ***Oh and APOEL are 2-1 up from the first leg so Anorthosis need at least 2 to go through

    Earlier longshot in Lithuania lost ❌.
    Al Ahly v El-Ittihad
    Egyptian Premier League

    El ittihad to score 6-4 (SKYBET).

    just 11-10 at HILLS 👎
    Again SKYBET have btts at 11-8, lower than just the away goal !!.

    Al ahly average 3 team goals per game so should ittihad score BTTS should land too.

    Think there could well be an away consolation here, on the rare occasions they concede at home it’s invariably against teams in mid table which ittihad are
    Ittihad are 6th in the goals scored and have the second worst defence in the league

    Prediction 3-1

  28. OnceFuture 1 month ago
