Champions League Parlay: Bet on a Big Showing for the Teams From Madrid

Sheriff Tiraspol pulled off one of the greatest upsets in the Champions League history in matchday 2 when they beat Real Madrid 2-1 at Santiago Bernabeu, and it’s time for the Spanish giants to teach them a lesson.

Sheriff Tiraspol vs. Real Madrid odds

Sheriff Tiraspol had to play eight qualifying games to earn their group stage spot winning six of them. Then they beat Shakhtar Donetsk in matchday one and pulled-off the upset of the season in European soccer beating Spanish giants Real Madrid 2-0 at Santiago Bernabeu.

Enough it’s enough… They came back to earth by losing both games against Inter with the same score 3-1 and we expect another defeat on Wednesday when they will host Real Madrid for their second mutual encounter of the group.

Despite leading the standings with nine points, two more thank their followers Inter, Real Madrid must win this clash in order to qualify further and secure their leading position. On top of that, they will be looking for revenge after negatively shocking the entire world. They enter this game on the back of a 7-game unbeaten run, winning 6 in the process. They took advantage of Real Sociedad’s draw game against Valencia and following the convincing 4-1 win against Granada they are now leading the Spanish top-flight standings.

They will be without Gareth Bale, Dani Ceballos, Federico Valverde and Eden Hazard all injured but they have plenty of firepower with Karim Benzema and Vinicius Junior leading the attacking line. The pair scored 18 goals in 13 La Liga fixtures sitting first and second in the top scorers’ chart.

It’s true, Real Madrid lost the reverse fixture but if we check the numbers they dominated the entire game, being very unlucky not to score more than once. They registered 30 goal attempts having 11 shots on target which is huge for any team in Europe. It’s time for Real to teach Sheriff a lesson and try to be more clinical in front of the net. We expect them to score at least three goals on their own.

Atletico Madrid vs. AC Milan Prediction

Atletico Madrid vs. AC Milan odds

The situation is Group B is very simple. We know that Liverpool will finish first after winning all four games while FC Porto and Atletico Madrid are separated by just one point, still fighting for the second spot which will offer them a knock-put stage position. AC Milan are dead last, and they need a miracle to finish second.

They must beat Atletico by two goals, they need Liverpool to win against FC Porto and in the final match they must win against Liverpool. On the other side Atletico need two win their final two games in order to finish second.

The visitors enter this clash on the back of 3 winless games across all competitions. On top of that they lost their last three head-to-heads against Atletico Madrid, including the reverse match, 2-1 on home soil, conceding the second goal in the last minute of the game.

Atletico forward Antoine Griezmann is available again after a second game of suspension was overturned on appeal while Luis Suarez in expected to lead the attacking line after playing just 25 minutes last weekend in the 1-0 win against Osasuna.

On the other side, AC Milan will be without their main keeper Mike Maignan, Fikayo Tomori, Ante Rebic, Davide Calabria and Samu Castillejo. Zlatan Ibrahimovic might be rested and replaced with Olivier Giroud. Both teams have been underperforming this term in the Champions League, but Atletico Madrid look more organized at the back.

Atletico Madrid conceded 19 goals in 17 games (La Liga and Champions League) which is unusual for them. At home they kept five clean sheets in their previous seven games across all competitions. AC Milan might find the back of the net, but we expect a straight home win.
