Tuesday Champions League Picks
1u - Liverpool @ -145
- Liverpool won 1-0 when the teams met earlier this season
When Liverpool lost to Atalanta it made Liverpool's season a lot harder. They went into that game on 9 points and a win would have meant that Jurgen Klopp could have rested his stars in this game. That opportunity isn't at his disposal now and he needs to win here in order to seal qualification and rest players in the final game. Liverpool are a better side than Ajax, despite the occasional struggle this season and I think Klopp will have them well motivated to bounce back.
1u - Gladbach @ +220
- Inter haven't won their past 5 Champions League games
Gladbach have been a welcome addition to the Champions League this season and they sit at the top of Group B, one point ahead of Real Madrid. If they win, they all but seal a place in the next round and they have an excellent chance at home to Inter Milan. Inter haven't won a game in Europe this season, with Antonio Conte is continuing his bad record on the continent. Inter won't qualify for the next round and will have their eyes focusing on their domestic struggles. Back the Germans here.
1u - Man City/Man City (HT/FT) @ +165
- Man City have been winning at halftime and fulltime in their past 3 games
Man City played brilliant soccer at the weekend as they hammered Burnley 5-0 and could be back to their best. City have already qualified for the next round but a win cements them as the group winner, allowing them an easier path in the next round. Pep will probably rest some players today but they've been in good form in Europe and they have every chance of scoring early in this one, as they have done in recent games.
1u - Atalanta -2 @ +140
- Midtylland have conceded 11 goals in their 4 games in the group this season
Atalanta are tied for second in the league with Ajax, with both teams being on 7 points. Atalanta need to win today and they need to win well to wnsure that they boost their goal difference. The Danes have been the whipping boys in the group, they've lost all 4 games, shipping 11 goals. Atalanta are good goalscorers and will looking to use that attack to put a few goals past their opponents here.
