Today’s football betting tips return with UEFA Champions League qualification action for Tuesday night.

Scottish Champions Rangers are in action and we will be focusing on their game away against Malmo.

Along with that, there are two other picks from the night’s action for today’s football today.


Best Football Betting Tips Today: Malmo v Rangers

Football betting tips today start with this Champions League entry for Rangers.

This is the opening foray for the Scottish Champions in the Champions League qualifiers this season.

They have faced Malmo before, which was back in the 2011 Champions League.

The meeting in Sweden produced a 1-1 draw on the night, following an away win for Malmo at Ibrox.

A slight concern for Rangers in this fixture is that Malmo are well into their new domestic season.

So they have the advantage of being match-fit.

The Swedish side have also come through one round of Champions League qualification, getting the better of Riga by a 2-1 aggregate.

But if Rangers carry on with their defensive strengths from last season, they are likely to avoid defeat.

Draw at 12/5

Football Betting Picks Today: Cluj v Young Boys

It is home advantage first in this Third Qualifying round of action in the UEFA Champions League for Cluj.

They have already gotten through a couple of qualifying rounds in the Champions League this season.

So that’s some match fitness that they have put under their belt.

They have also played in the Romania Super Cup and kicked off their new domestic league too.

Overall, the form of CFR Cluj this season reads W5 D1 L1 in all competitions (90 minutes).

On the one previous occasion that they hosted Young Boys, there was a 1-1 draw in a Europa League fixture.

The Swiss visitors are the favourites in the match outright of the win.

They too have started their new domestic season, going undefeated in two from there.

They also knocked out Bratislava in the previous Champions League qualification round this season.

Young Boys have scored at least three goals in two of their last three matches.

This isn’t the easiest of away games, but they are worth chancing.

Young Boys to win at 7/5

Football Betting Tips for Today: Genk v Shakhtar Donetsk

We are going to pull for the away win in the final game of today’s football betting tips.

Shakhtar Donetsk entered qualification with this road game.

The Ukraine side have won their opening two games of their new domestic league season.

They scored five goals in total across those two games as well.

So they are up and running and certainly appear to be the stronger of the two sides in this tie.

They were in last season’s Champions League group stage, taking a W2 D2 L2 record in a tough campaign.

But the Ukrainians won their two group matches against Real Madrid and played out draws with Inter Milan.

This is the first time that Shakhtar has faced Genk.

Bet at Betfair

Belgian side Genk have played two matches of their new domestic campaign.

There has been one point returned from them in those two fixtures.

This is their first steps in this season’s UEFA Champions League, just like their opponents on Tuesday.

Genk are in UEFA competition for the first time since appearing in the Round of 32 of the 2018/19 Europa League.

They don’t particularly rate as a major threat.

Shakhtar to win at 13/10
