Champions League predictions and betting tips for Tuesday's matches brought to you by Jimmy The Punt.
Liverpool vs Napoli
Napoli Double Chance
I think the 16/5 about a Napoli win at Anfield on Tuesday is too large. I have opted for a slightly more conservative approach though, taking them to get a result in Merseyside at a shade over evens.
In terms of the context of the game, unless the hosts can win by a margin or three or more goals, the Ciucciarelli will top the group as champions, however, I think this has been factored into the price too much.
Leeds’ victory on Saturday was the first time Virgil Van Djik has lost on home soil in 70 games. There is no denying that the Reds are formidable at home, especially with their stalwart in central defence, however, they have struggled for consistency this campaign.
Luciano Spalletti’s side remain the only unbeaten team in Serie A, topping the division. They have won their last 13 games on the spin, including a 4-1 victory in the reverse of this fixture, which is why I think the 21/20 for them to avoid defeat is too large.
Sporting vs Eintracht Frankfurt
Over 2.5 Goals
Group D is set up for a thrilling climax on Tuesday as each of its four sides stand a chance of knock-out qualification.
Sporting welcome Eintracht Frankfurt, both have seven points with the hosts ahead in second with a superior goal difference. This combined with the Eagles inferior head-to-head record against Sporting and Tottenham means only a win will do in Portugal.
Their last two UCL games have seen eight goals, with overs landing in each, and in the Bundesliga their games have averaged 3.75 goals as they have scored the second most of any side in the division.
Given the context of the group, and their pedigree for goals, I expect the visitors to abandon all caution and a goal laden game to follow at the José Alvalade Stadium.
Marseille vs Spurs
Hugo Lloris to be card
Spurs supremo Antonio Conte has described this game as a cup final, with the hosts only needing a point to secure their place in the round of 16.
The visitors head to Southern France brimming with confidence given the manner of their victory on Saturday afternoon as they came from two goals down to snatch all three points in injury time at Bournemouth.
There is no disputing that the North Londoners have struggled creatively in the absence of RIcharlison and Dejan Kulusevski and with the pair unlikely to be available here, I expect a cagey affair at the Orange Vélodrome.
Siding with a lack of goals appeals, but with Tottenham requiring a result I think they will be pulling out all the stocks which is why I am plumping a Hugo Lloris card.
