By BET Contributor
Europe’s biggest club competition returns this week with plenty of enticing matches to look forward to. With that, brings the joy of finding those valuable winners in the hope of building a winning bet slip. Here, we’ll be looking at Wednesday’s Uefa Champions League. We’ve got 3 Matches, 3 Tips and 3 Value Bets.
21:00 – Ajax Amsterdam vs Liverpool
Life without Virgil van Dijk begins on Wednesday for Liverpool as the Reds travel to the Dutchman’s homeland to face Ajax. Without him, Jurgen Klopp’s men look a shadow of themselves, and without Alisson Becker in goals as well, you get the feeling that Liverpool will have to rely on outscoring their opponents. Ajax have been superb this campaign, winning all three of their home matches, scoring 10 goals. That includes five on the weekend. Despite losing the likes of Donny Van De Beek and Hakim Ziyech, Ajax looked devastating in attack.
21:00 – Manchester City v FC Porto
Manchester City will be looking to go one better from their exit in the quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions League last season when they get their group stage campaign underway against FC Porto. Pep Guardiola has been dealt with a massive injury blow with Kevin De Bruyne expected to miss the next couple of games, although City did welcome back Sergio Aguero in their 1-0 win over Arsenal on the weekend. FC Porto have started their season off indifferently, winning just two of their opening four matches.
18:55 – RB Salzburg v Lokomotiv Moscow
High-flying FC Salzburg kick-start their UEFA Champions League campaign with a fairly favourable tie against Lokomotiv Moscow. The Austrian champions have been outstanding in the current season, winning all four of their opening league ties, scoring 17 times. Lokomotiv Moscow began their season off on a rocky start, but have since picked up their form, winning four successive league matches. Away from home, they’re still yet to fully convince, winning just two of their five ties, scoring just five goals.
