The oddschecker team have picked a 9/1 Tuesday treble covering the Champions League qualifying round second leg action.
Rangers Win vs Union Saint Gilloise
Following a 2-0 defeat in the first leg in Belgium, Rangers have it all to do to qualify for the next stage of the Champions League qualification process, as they look to reach the group stages for the first time since 2010. The Europa League runners up have won their first two Scottish Premiership games against Livingston and Kilmarnock and will be hoping a capacity crowd at Ibrox will be able to get them over the line.
Union Saint Gilloise, on the other hand, suffered a damaging 3-0 defeat to Mechelen, who lost both their first two games. It will be interesting to see if the Belgian visitors will be fired up after their display last Saturday, or whether that loss has damaged the morale of the dressing room.
With that in mind, the oddschecker team think that Rangers are likely to win on the night; whether they’ll be able to turn around a two-goal deficit from the first leg to progress to the next stage is another question.
Benfica Win vs FC Midtjylland
Benfica comfortably won the first leg in Portugal against their Danish opponents Midtjylland, with a sensational Goncalo Ramos hattrick helping them to a 4-1 win last week. Benfica also managed to score four goals for the second time, dominating Arouca with a spectacular 4-0 victory, sending them level at the top of the Portuguese League with rivals Porto.
Midtjylland, who have already played four league games prior to Tuesday's second leg clash, currently sit eigth out of 12 in the Danish Superliga, a far from ideal start for last season’s runners up. They have won just one of their last seven games, reaching the third qualifying round courtesy of a penalty shootout win vs AEK Larnaca.
Everything is pointing towards a Benfica win in this clash, and despite having the home advantage, it looks like one step too far for the Danish outfit to win Tuesday’s game.
AS Monaco Win vs PSV Eindhoven
Monaco got off to a winning start in Ligue 1, with a 2-1 victory away to Strasbourg. They are the visitors for Tuesday’s clash against Ruud van Nistelrooy’s PSV side, and both sides will be keen to book their place in the next stage of the Champions League qualification stages.
The 1-1 draw in Monaco last week sets the second leg up perfectly for a mouth-watering encounter, with both these sides, who faced each other in last season’s Europa League group stages, keen to impress.
Monaco beat PSV the last time they played in the Phillips Stadion in Eindhoven, with the visitors prevailing 2-1 on that occasion, and we think history could repeat itself, as we think Monaco will win on the night to progress further.
