Tuesday Champions League Picks
1u - Under 2.5 @ +105
- Zenit averaged one goal conceeded across their 3 home UCL games last year
Russia is a tough place to go for an away team and last season Zenit only conceeded 3 goals in 3 home games, an average of one per game. However, Benfica, RB Leipzig and Lyon are were all far more dynamic and lethal in front of goal than this Brugge team. Take the under for what will probably be a low scoring Zenit win.
1u - Sevilla to win @ +280
- Sevilla won the Europa League last season
We know all about Sevilla at this stage, they're European competition specialists. Last season they won the Europa League, dispatching Inter Milan and Man Utd on the way. They're vastly overpriced considering their quality, and must be backed at that price.
1u - Rennes to win @ -121
- Rennes are unbeaten in their 7 Ligue 1 games this season
Rennes are going to surprise some people this season with most only knowing former Premier League man Steven Nzonzi, and wonderkid Eduardo Camavinga. Camavinga might well be the best central midfield youth prospect on the planet, ahead of Phil Foden and the rest. I watched his debut by chance and since then I've kept an eye on him and this tournament will be his breakout.
1u - Haaland to score anytime @ -125
- Haaland has 4 goals in 4 games so far this season for Dortmund
Erling Haaland has been immense since joining Dortmund. He's the full package, strong, quick and crucially, lethal in front of goal. Former Dortmund man Robert Lewandowski is the best number 9 in the world but in terms of a man you'd want in front of goal, nobody is surpassing Haaland at the moment. It may be odds on but it's worth taking him to score today, especially given that Lazio have conceeded 8 in the past 3 games.
1u - PSG -1 @ +160
- PSG have scored 10 goals in their last 2 games
PSG come into this game in real form, they've scored ten goals in the past 2 games. In Ligue 1 they've scored 16 and conceeded just 3 in 7 games. Man Utd on the other hand have been dreadful, with a high scoring win over Newcastle being very deceptive. I'm taking PSG with a handicap to win the game and I believe they'll walk through this United team.
