Champions League preview – Tuesday 18 October
UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE - GROUP E
Bayer Leverkusen v Tottenham
CSKA v Monaco
Group E is up for grabs. Bayer Leverkusen trail Monaco and Tottenham, so a victory on Tuesday night is essential and the German side are 2.20 (bet365 ) to beat English opponents missing Toby Alderweireld and Harry Kane. However, Spurs won at CSKA in their last game and they are 3.55 (Unibet ) to make a big step towards the knockout stage.
UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE - GROUP F
Real Madrid v Legia Warsaw
Sporting v Borussia Dortmund
Most Champions League coupons will feature Real Madrid who are no bigger than 1.04 to beat their Polish opponents. Perhaps Cristiano Ronaldo will plunder a hat-trick and he’s 6.00 (Paddy Power ) to score three goals in this game.
Sporting v Dortmund should be a closer contest and the German side are 2.15 with bet365 to get the job done and keep pace with Real at the top of the section. However, Sporting were close to winning at the Bernabeu and William Hill have 3.50 about the home win.
UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE - GROUP G
Club Brugge v FC Porto
Leicester v FC Copenhagen 19:45
Leicester are taking advantage of an easy Champions League group and the Foxes are 1.91 with William Hill to beat a Copenhagen side who did claim a 1-1 draw at Porto before mauling Brugge.
FCK are 4.50 (bet365 ) for the win and it’s not a ridiculous price considering they are a decent team who will look to exploit a weak Leicester defence.
UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE - GROUP H
Dinamo Zagreb v Sevilla
Lyon v Juventus
Sevilla enjoyed a goalless draw at Juventus before beating Lyon 1-0, with Unibet offering 1.52 that they land three points in Croatia. Dinamo are pointless after two games and are likely to be whipping boys, with the Spanish side a good bet at 2.50 (bet365 ) to win without conceding.
Juventus also have four points and punters can get 1.70 (William Hill ) that they win away to Lyon, although the French side are capable of keeping things tight and perhaps a better bet is the draw at 3.80 (bet365 ).
