Wednesday Uefa Champions League Multiple and Value Bets
By BET Contributor
There’s plenty to look forward to in Matchday Three of the UEFA Champions League, and with this being the final round before a three-week wait due to the final international break of the year, it should be an interesting turn of events.
As always, we’ll be taking a closer look at five matches to punt on each day, while also doing an extra bit of digging to find value in each fixture.
19:55 – Olympiacos v Manchester City
Manchester City will be looking to put their domestic form behind them when they travel to Greece. Pep Guardiola’s side are off to their worst start under his guidance in the Premier League, but have won their opening three group stage matches, scoring three goals in each. A win will see City through to the knockout stages, while it will also be just the second time that Guardiola has won his opening four games in the group stages while in charge of Man City. Olympiacos lost 3-0 in Manchester and have scored just once so far in the competition.
22:00 – Bayern Munich v FC Salzburg
In one of the most entertaining ties to look forward to, Bayern Munich host Austrian champions, FC Salzburg. The Bavarians claimed a thumping 6-2 victory over Salzburg in their reverse fixture, although the scoreline suggested that Bayern Munich were much more comfortable than they initially were. Despite having just a single point to their name in the opening three matches, Salzburg have taken the lead in all three of their Champions League encounters, with highly-rated Hungarian sensation, Dominik Szoboszlai, scoring twice.
22:00 – Liverpool v Atalanta
Liverpool will be hoping to book their place in the Round of 16 in the UEFA
Champions League when they welcome Atalanta to Anfield. The Reds are currently five points clear in Group D and claimed a resounding 5-0 win against their opponents in Italy last time. Despite their injuries, Liverpool look extremely dangerous, and easily picked Leicester City apart on the weekend. Atalanta have won just two of their last eight games across all competitions, which doesn’t bode well for them.
22:00 – Ajax v Midtjylland
With Liverpool playing against Atalanta again, Ajax will be looking to use this fixture to their advantage as they have the opportunity to either close the gap on Liverpool or distance themselves from Atalanta. Regardless, Ajax will have to worry about themselves for 90 minutes and win their own game against Midtjylland. The Dutch champions won the reverse fixture 2-1, while the visitors have lost all three of their matches played so far.
22:00 – Atletico Madrid v Lokomotiv Moscow
It’s been a strange start to the UCL for Atletico Madrid. From their opening three matches, Diego Simeone’s side have won one, drawn one and lost one. That defeat to Bayern Munich was Atletico’s only defeat across all competitions in 11 games this season. Lokomotiv Moscow have been defensively sound this term and managed to hold the Spanish side to a 1-1 draw in Russia earlier this month. With the business end of the competition now fast approaching, Atletico Madrid should click into gear considering they come off a big win against Barcelona over the weekend.
