InplayMan is back with a 3/1 goals accumulator treble for Wednesday's Champions League action.
Sevilla vs Dortmund - Both Teams to Score
17th in La Liga and without a win in Europe, Lopetegui is on the ropes as Sevilla boss. There’s already rumours circulating that he’ll be axed with a loss here, and Sevilla’s UCL campaign hangs in the balance, so I’d expect them to go for this one. They’ve had a rough run here as of late with Atletico, Man City and Barcelona the last three visitors to Seville and while Dortmund are just as capable, I would expect Sevilla to go for this, and Dortmund are hardly the best defensively.
The visitors managed a goal at The Etihad against Man City which is an achievement in itself, but were 3-2 losers against FC Koln at the weekend, making it three losses on the bounce on the road in all competitions. Yes, they have plenty of talent about them and should be able to trouble an out of sorts Sevilla here, and both sides really need the 3pts from this one so I’m expecting both teams to find the net.
Benfica vs PSG - Over 2.5 Goals
The top two in the group coming into this game with the chance to pretty much secure qualification here and I’m expecting a few goals in this one. PSG with their wealth of talent could easily run riot in this if they’re on the money there’s no doubt about that. I don’t personally think they will have it all their own way in this one though.
Benfica have been pretty impressive with wins over Haifa and Juventus in their two games so far, and they sit top of the Portuguese top flight with 22pts from a possible 24 this season so are flying domestically, and PSG showed last time out in a 1-3 win in Haifa that they can be undone. To be on the safe side though I’m going to go for total goals in this one.
RB Leipzig vs Celtic - RB Leipzig Over 1.5 Team Goals
Neither of these pair have had the best of starts in the Champions League this season but I'm going to let it slide for RB Leipzig here and back them to get some points on the board against Celtic. Their 1-4 loss here at home was the end of Domenico Tedesco's tenure as Leipzig gaffer, and since then they've been a pretty solid outfit here at the Red Bull Arena, beating Dortmund 3-0 and at the weekend beating Bochum 4-0 on home soil.
Things haven't 100% clicked don't get me wrong, but they are a much better side than they were and anything but a win here is pretty much the end of their Champion League campaign. They still face difficult away days at Celtic and Shakhtar as well as a home tie against Real Madrid, so this double header could make or break them really and I'd expect them to make the most of home advantage and get a win against the Scots.
