Today’s football betting tips for Tuesday are all from the Champions League which is down to the final action before the group stage.

It’s the second leg of the Play-Off round of action that we are diving into.

There are three games so it’s the three picks for today’s football betting that we are looking at.


Best Football Betting Tips Today: PSV Eindhoven v Benfica

This always looked like being the tie of the round and it’s set up for a big finale.

PSV aren’t out of this and are going to be the pick for our football betting tips today.

They lost the first leg 2-1 in Portugal, but they have been in great form overall this season.

The Dutch side are W7 L1 in all competitions this season, scoring at least two goals in all but two.

In their three home games, they have won all three and have averaged four goals per game.

The one previous time that PSV hosted Benfica there was a 2-2 draw.

That was back in the 2011 Europa League.

PSV have won their last five Champions League home games including qualifiers.

Benfica have also been in great form this season, winning all six games in all competitions.

The Eagles have scored exactly two goals in all fixtures played this season.

In the Champions League, they won 2-0 at Spartak Moscow in the last round.

This is a much more difficult fixture for them in the Netherlands however.

We have to lean towards the home win as PSV look like a big threat going forward.

PSV to win at 10/11

Football Betting Picks Today: Ludogorets v Malmo

Next for Football betting for today Ludogorets have some work to do back at home.

They lost 2-0 in Malmo in the first leg of this Champions League Play off tie.

Can they produce a response?

The Bulgarians have won only one of their last four matches in all competitions, so they aren’t in top form.

To their credit, they started in the first round of qualifying and have beaten Shakhtyor, NS Mura and Olympiakos along the way.

Last season Ludogorets were in the Europa League group stage. But they lost all six matches, conceding at least three goals in five of those.

So we do think that Malmo are just going to continue to have the edge over them.

The Swedes knocked out Rangers in the last round.

The visitors are the underdogs for this match but with their opponents having to come out and push, Malmo should get their chances.

In their last six road games in all competitions, Malmo are undefeated (W3 D3).

We imagine that they can do enough to avoid defeat.

Draw at 9/4

Football for Today: Ferencvaros v Young Boys

Today’s football betting tips finish off with a look at Ferencvaros v Young Boys with the tie nicely in the balance.

Ferencvaros lost the first leg 2-3 but had a chance here back on home turf to try and turn it around.

They have only gone W2 L3 in their last five games in all competitions, however.

In the Champions League, they are W5 L2 in their seven fixtures this season.

They have lost their last two games in the competition after a second-leg loss at Slavia Prague in the previous round.

Bet at Betfair

The Turkish side will host Young Boys for the first time on Tuesday.

Young Boys are W3 D2 in their five Champions League qualifiers this season.

The two drawn matches in that sequence happened away from home.

Looking at their overall form, with just the one defeat in eight fixtures in all competitions, the visitors may be worth backing to pick up another win.

Young Boys to win at 10/11
