Move over Real Madrid, there's a new Sheriff in town!
The Moldovan minnows stunned the Bernabeau last night to record arguably the biggest upset in Champions League football history with a 2-1 win over the 13-time European champions. The Spanish giants were as short as 1/12 pre-match while Sheriff were as big as 25/1 with 10Bet.
What a strike to win it for Sheriff against Real Madrid! 🚀

Club Brugge also pulled off a fine win away to RB Leipzig and Atletico Madrid staged a unlikely comeback when AC Milan were reduced to 10-men at the San Siro, Luis Suarez squeezing a late penalty in to the net to secure a 2-1 win. And just to round off the night Lionel Messi struck his first goal for PSG in their 2-0 win over Manchester City.
If Wednesday night produces half as much drama we'll be in for a treat.
Tie of the night is in Turin where Chelsea visit Juventus in Group H. Both sides started with a win on Matchday 1 so a share of the spoils at 9/4 wouldn't be too detrimental to both their chances of progressing.
Benfica have made a flawless start to the Portuguese Primeira Liga with seven wins from seven and will think that now is a good time to be hosting Barcelona. Things are not all well at the Nou Camp with Ronald Koeman's tenure under increasing strain following an unbeaten but relatively unspectacular star to their campaign. A 3-0 home defeat to Bayern means Barcelona are already chasing things in Group E. The Eagles are 9/5 to win, while Barca remain favs at 7/5.
Goals should flow at RB Salzburg v Lille. The Austrians have scored 23 in their opening nine league games while Lille have shipped 14 in their first eight Ligue 1 matches. Over 2.5 goals pays 4/6.
That combned with the same Over 2.5 Goals at Atalanta v Young Boys pay 8/5.
Erling Haaland's absence for Dortmund left us with a winning single on Karim Benzema last night and we're backing another two Champions League legends to net tonight. Cristiano Ronaldo should always be backed to score in this competition as should Robert Lewandowski for Bayern. The double pays 107/100 at Bet365.
In the Championship Fulham have been good for us lately and should be backed to win at home to Swansea. That pays just 4/7 but you cn construct a BetBuilder that also sees Fulham score two or more and Swansea, who've only scored eight in nine, to score under 2 goals at 4/5.
- Fulham to win, Fulham Over 1 goal, Swansea Under 2 goals 4/5 Bet365 BetBuilder
