Today’s football betting tips return to UEFA Champions League qualification matches, and there are three games in play for the night.

It will be a selection from each of those games that are under examination for today’s football betting.

We start things off with the early kick-off of the evening.


Football Betting Picks Today: Spartak Moscow v Benfica

Football betting for today moves on to a very interesting tie as both clubs here enter at this Third Qualifying Round.

Spartak Moscow have opened their new domestic season, taking one win and a loss from two played there.

The Russians weren’t involved in Europe last season, so this is their first return since failing in the Europa League qualifiers back in 2019.

Spartak Moscow have hosted Benfica once before, which was back in the group stage of the 2012 Champions League.

The Russians took a 2-1 home win on that occasion.

Benfica do look the better of the two sides here, but they haven’t started their domestic season yet.

The Portuguese outfit fell from the Champions League qualifiers last season, losing at the first attempt there.

But that put them into the Group Stage of the Europa League where they posted a W3 D3 record.

They were then eliminated by Premier League side Arsenal in the Round of 32.

The visitors may be worth chancing.

Benfica to win at 5/4

Football Betting Picks Today: Dinamo Zagreb v Legia Warsaw

Football betting for today looks at a fairly evenly-balanced tie that is up next for Wednesday’s qualifiers.

Both teams have gotten a fair few games under their belt in their respective new seasons.

Dinamo Zagreb are W5 D1 L1 in their matches across all competitions this season.

The Croatians have come through two rounds of qualification already.

They opened with a 5-2 aggregate win over V Reykjavik, then it was a comfortable 3-0 aggregate win over Omonia Zagreb.

As for their opponents, Legia Warsaw have taken the exact same W5 D1 L1 record from their games this season.

That’s been in the Polish Super Cup, the Polish League and the Champions League.

They started in the first qualifying round of the Champions League. It was a 5-2 aggregate win over Bodo Glimt to start with.

Then they knocked over Flora Tallinn 3-1 on aggregate.

So it’s been comfortable for them as well and the visitors may well be able to hold out in this first leg.

Draw at 11/4

Football Today: Ferencvaros v Slavia Prague

Football betting for today moves on to the final game of the day from the Champions League qualifiers.

Ferencvaros competed in the group stage of the Champions League last season after coming a long way through the qualification process.

They collected an easy 6-1 aggregate win over Prishtina in the opening round of qualifying, winning 3-0 at home.

It was then a 5-1 aggregate success over Zalgiris in the last round.

So they have been in fine form in front of goal.

This will be the first time that they faced Slavia Prague.

Saliva Prague are entering qualification at this Third Qualifying round.

They have had a couple of games under their belt though in the Czech league, winning both of those.

In last season’s Champions League qualifiers, Slavia Prague fell at the first hurdle, going out to Midtjylland because of a heavy road loss.

This is a tough opener for them to handle.

Ferencvaros to win at 23/10
