We take a look at 3 of the UEFA Champions League matches taking place on Wednesday and suggest a bet in each.
Napoli v Ajax – Click here to bet
Napoli are currently top of Group A with a 100% record and they face Ajax who have 1 win and 2 losses from their opening 3 games and currently sit 3rd, 3 points behind Liverpool. Napoli’s last match was a 6-1 thrashing of Ajax on the road and they have won all 3 of their matches by 3 goals or more in the Champions League. Ajax have only made the 1 road trip to date and that was a 2-1 defeat at Liverpool.
Napoli are in excellent form domestically as well and I can see them chalking up another comfortable victory here.
Suggested Bet: Handicap, Napoli -1.5 goals at 14/10
Tottenham v Eintracht Frankfurt – Click here to bet
Tottenham are going well in the English Premier League and currently sit 3rd on the table, 4 points behind Arsenal. In the Champions League they are 2nd in Group D, 2 points behind Sporting and level on points with Eintracht Frankfurt. Last week they played in Frankfurt and the game finished 0-0 and Tottenham’s only home game in the campaign to date was a 2-0 victory over Marseille. Frankfurt play their second away match having beaten Marseille 1-0 on the road in their first away game.
This is a very important match for both teams in a competitive group and I think like last week we could get quite a tight affair although I do believe that Tottenham will justify the 8/15 favouritism. They have kept two clean sheets in the League already and I am betting that we won’t have both teams finding the back of the net.
Suggested Bet: Both teams to score, NO, at 19/20
Rangers v Liverpool – Click here to bet
Rangers are currently bottom of Group A without a point having lost all 3 of their matches to date. Last week they went down 2-0 to Liverpool on the road and they have yet to score a goal in Champions League action while conceding 9. Liverpool are coming off a 3-2 away defeat to Arsenal in the League and looking at their Champions League form on the road they have just played the one game which was a 4-1 defeat at Napoli.
Liverpool are predictably short for this game at 37/100 while Rangers can be backed at 13/2 and I am not convinced that Liverpool are going to have things all their own way and I am going to bet on them to win by exactly a goal.
Suggested Bet: Handicap, Liverpool (-1) the draw at 3/1
