Wednesday Champions League Picks
1u - Leipzig -1 @ +115
- Istanbul have lost 5 of their last 6 Champions League games
Despite scoring lots in the Bundesliga we've only see Leipzig score 4 goals so far in Europe this year. That changes this week and I see RB Leipzig piling goals past the Turkish side. It's essential that the Germans win this game if they have any chances of progressing into the next round, they'll be fired up and score freely against Basakehir who've shipped 9 goals so far.
1u - PSG @ +140
- Man Utd have conceded in 5 of their last 6 games in all competitions
United are top of the group and beat the Parisians comfortably when they met earlier this season, but despite that I think PSG win here. United have been patchy all year and I don't trust their ability at the back. They've conceded at least one goal in 5 of their past 6 matches and if they give PSG any chances in front of goal then they'll be in serious trouble.
1u - Under 2.5 Goals @ -111
- Both teams have conceeded a total of 4 goals combined in the Champions League this season
Chelsea and Sevilla have secured their place in the next round and can't be caught, they're now level on ten points and this game will go a long way to decide who wins the group given that you'd expect both teams to comfortably win their final group game. Chelsea have conceded just one in Europe this year, and Sevilla only three. These are two teams who've kept it tight and with this being a tense, tough game for both teams, I'm expecting it to be a low scoring affair.
1u - Over 2.5 Goals @ +125
- Both teams have conceded an average of 2 goals per game in the Champions League this season
Although Club Brugge technically can make the next round, it won't be happening and they'll be heading out of the competition alongside Zenit. With less pressure on these teams, and both fancing their chances of victory, I can see this game erupting into a high scoring game. Back the goals here.
