Today’s football betting tips turns full attention to the UEFA Champions League as the qualification process rolls on.

This is the second leg of ties from the Third Qualifying round so we have a better idea of which way to go for betting because of the first matches.

There are three picks that we have for today’s football betting tips.


Best Football Betting Tips Today: Slavia Prague v Ferencvaros

Football betting tips today start with Slavia Prague trying to claw their way back into this tie.

They lost the first leg of this tie 2-0. So they have a lot of work to do.

But the Czech side are the odds-on favourites to bank the match win on Tuesday.

The first leg of this tie came after their opening two matches of their new Czech league campaign, which they won.

This is the first time that they have hosted Ferencvaros and this may not be the easiest of challenges for them.

The Hungarians have had more playing time under their belt, having started in the first qualification round of the Champions League.

They posted convincing wins over Prishtina and Zalgiris.

That first-leg win happened after having lost the opening game of their new domestic league campaign.

All they have to do is hang on here.

Football Betting Picks Today: Shakhtar v Genk

Football betting for today turns towards what could be a comfortable home win.

Shakhtar picked up a 2-1 road win at Genk in the first leg of this tie.

So they are well in control of things with home advantage coming up on Tuesday.

The Ukrainians entered the Champions League qualifiers at this stage.

Last term they were involved in the group stage of action, taking a couple of wins over Real Madrid in that campaign.

They also drew both games against Inter.

Belgium side Genk look well short of the quality needed to pull themselves through this tie.

Their record in their first three games of the new Belgian top-flight is W1 D1 L1 with no clean sheet.

This is their first season in Europe since qualifying from the Europa League Group Stage in the 2018/19 season.

They were eliminated in the Round of 32 by Slavia Prague. They have won only one of their last four European away games.

Shakhtar to win at 7/10

Football for Today: Midtjylland v PSV Eindhoven

Today’s football betting tips move on to what should be one of the more competitive matches.

Midtjylland lost the first leg of this tie away from home.

That was a heavy 3-0 loss for the Danish side. At the end of the day that is probably going to be too much for them to overturn.

But they have some interesting home form, beating Celtic in extra time in the previous round of the Champions League qualifiers.

This on paper always looked to be a tougher tie.

In last season’s Champions League qualifiers they banked very good home wins over Slavia Prague and Young Boys.

The new Dutch season hasn’t started yet, so with a comfortable lead, PSV could take an easy approach to this.

They have a strong advantage that’s not likely to slip.

PSV’s Champions League qualification campaign started in the Second Round when they smashed Galatasaray 7-2 on aggregate.

On the weekend they powered their way to a 4-0 victory over Ajax in the Dutch Super Cup.

So they are firing well in front of the goal.

But we wonder how focused they are going to be in this one ahead of their domestic league opener next weekend.

Midtjylland to win at 23/10
