The Champions League will resume tonight and we have carefully scanned the odds to give you the most up to date information on the fixtures. Check out our Top Five Bets in the Champions League below.
Bayern Munich will want to confirm top spot in Group E of the Champions League when they face Benfica tonight. The Bavarians are understandably the huge favourites to top this group, but they will be wary of the threat posed by Ajax just below them. Niko Kovac’s men have never lost to Benfica after winning six of their nine meetings with the Portuguese side. Their most recent encounter saw the hosts win by a 2-0 scoreline earlier this season. Benfica for their part have failed to score in seven of their last nine Champions League games. For this reason, a Home Win looks incredibly attractive and you can back that here.
Lyon’s hopes of keeping their unbeaten record in the Champions League alive will face a huge test when they host the high-flying Manchester City. The Citizens will travel to France full of optimism following their recent form in all competitions. The only previous meeting between the two sides ended in favour of Lyon as they beat City in their own backyard during the corresponding fixtures. The hosts have struggled in Europe as they are yet to win since their victory away at the Etihad and the record stands at three draws and one win. Man City have won both of their away Champions League games so far and you can back them to do the same tonight.
Atletico Madrid are in a very strong position to qualify for the next stage of the Champions League and a win at home against Monaco will go a long way in helping them achieve that. Monaco are having a season to forget and they might not offer much in terms of competition to this Atletico side. The Colchoneros have relied very heavily on Antoine Griezmann for goals. To this end he has scored ten goals in his last ten home Champions League games, netting in each of his last three at Wanda Metropolitano. He makes an excellent punt for the Anytime Goalscorer market.
PSG and Liverpool are both eager to move top of Group C with a win on Wednesday. This has been one of the most dramatic groups and both sides know that they cannot afford a slip up if they are to make it to the next stage. The two have met one another three times in total, with the most recent fixture ending in a 3-2 win for Liverpool at Anfield earlier this season. The hosts have seen goals on both ends in their last five Champions League encounters and this is very likely to happen again.
Tottenham are in desperate need of a victory over Inter Milan if they are to keep their Champions League hopes alive. The two have met one another on five previous occasions, with Spurs taking two wins and Inter claiming three. The home side have won in every single encounter, and both teams have found the back of the net in four of them. Considering both teams have scored in four of the five previous meetings and the fact that the five meetings have averaged 4.4 goals per game, we think there is value in backing Over 2.5 Goals and Both Teams to Score.
