Today’s football betting tips for Wednesday all come from the midweek Champions League action.

It is the second leg fixture of the Play-Off round, so the final chance for those involved to get to the Group Stage.

There are three games and we have a pick from each of those for today’s football betting.


Best Football Betting Tips Today: Brondby v RB Salzburg

Football betting tips today start with an expected away win for Austrian side RB Salzburg.

There was a victory for them in the first leg, a 2-1 home success.

There has been perfect form from Salzburg this season, winning all six matches across all competitions.

They entered the Champions League qualification process in this play off round.

It was Group Stage action for RB Salzburg last season, which didn’t go well for them.

It was a W1 D1 L4 record in their six fixtures there, but that was enough for a third-place finish.

They then exited the Europa League against Villareal.

Brondby have not had a particularly profitable time of things this season.

They are winless at D4 L3 in their seven matches in all competitions.

The Danish side also entered the Champions League qualifiers at this stage.

Brondby didn’t have European action this season and the away win looks to be the way to go.

Football Betting Picks Today: Dinamo Zagreb v FC Sheriff

There is plenty of life left in this tie after FC Sheriff pulled off an underdog success in the first leg.

It was a thumping 3-0 home success that they put in the bag.

The Moldovans have moved on to a W8 D2 L1 record this season in all competitions.

Their Champions League started in the first qualifying round.

They have gotten past Tuesta, Alashkert and Red Star and are primed to reach the group stage.

FC Sheriff have played three previous away games at Dinamo Zagreb.

They have returned a D1 L2 record from that.

This is now nothing more than an exercise in game management and hanging on for them.

Dinamo Zagreb are up against here, a little surprisingly.

They are on a good W7 D2 L2 record this season in all competitions.

Their entry also came in the first qualifying round and they had won five of their six games before the first leg of this tie.

But only in one of their matches in this season’s Champions League qualifiers, Dinamo Zagreb have only scored more than two goals once.

So that suggests that they could struggle to haul themselves back in this.

Still, they have to go for it and are to be backed for the home win.

Dinamo Zagreb to win to nil at 11/10

Football for Today: Shakhtar v Monaco

Today’s football betting tips finish off with Shakhtar trying to close out this play off tie.

They earned a 1-0 win at Monaco in the first leg, an excellent result.

The Ukrainians are W7 L1 in all competitions this season.

Their qualification campaign kicked off in the Third Qualifying Round with a 4-2 aggregate win over Genk.

Last season they went straight to the Group Stage and returned a W2 D2 L2 record. Both wins happened against Real Madrid.

We expect them to close out this tie back at home.

Bet at Betway

Monaco have not gotten themselves going at all this season on any front.

They have gone winless in the first three league games of the campaign, picking up one point only.

In the previous round of the Champions League qualifiers, they earned a good 5-1 aggregate win over Sparta Prague.

But it has been downhill for them since.

Monaco entered this game on a three-match losing streak currently in all competitions.

They have not found the back of the net in any of those.

Confidence can’t be high right now and they look to be up against it in a tricky road game.

Shakhtar to win at 19/10
