Napoli v Liverpool Predictions & Betting Odds – 3rd October 2018

Liverpool
Napoli v Liverpool Betting Preview - UEFA Champions League 3rd October 8.00pm Liverpool came up with a late winner at home on match day one to claim maximum points off PSG in this tough group. They will be looking to follow up with something on the board from this trip to Italy. Napoli have been putting together a strong season but they could only manage a 0-0 draw in their opening Champions League group against Red Star Belgrade. Read our predictions for the Napoli v Liverpool fixture.

Napoli News and Form

Napoli have put together a solid enough season so far. They are running in second place in Serie A only to Juventus. They lost against the Old Lady on the weekend in a high-profile showdown at the top of the league. That was their second defeat of the season only across all competition. On home soil, Napoli have three wins from three games played, the last two wins coming with a clean sheet as well. You do have two very strong sides going up against each other here and over 2.5 goals is at 4/5 odds* (betting odds taken on September 30th, 2018 at 6:46 pm). As good as Napoli have been on the domestic front they have struggled to translate it over into European action. They have lost seven of their last thirteen games in Europe and have won just one of their last six in the Champions League. They have won three of their last four European home games though, firing off at least two goals in each of those. Both teams to score looks a pretty straightforward option to throw into the mix at 4/7 odds* (betting odds taken on September 30th, 2018 at 6:46 pm). They have what it takes to make this a very difficult game for Liverpool and current boss Carlo Ancelotti has never lost a UEFA game against Liverpool (W3 D1).

Liverpool News and Form

Liverpool’s winning streak across all competitions ended in the week with back to back draws (90 minutes) against Chelsea in the EFL Cup and Premier League. On match day one of this season’s Champions League, Liverpool came up with a late winner to beat PSG 3-2. This trip to Naples will be the first of two very difficult road games in the group for the Reds, having to go to Paris to face PSG as well. This season in all competitions away from Anfield, Liverpool have posted a W3 D1 record and they have conceded exactly one goal in each of their last three road games. In the correct score market a 1-1 draw is the shortest-priced option at 6/1 with the Liverpool 2-1 at 15/2* (betting odds taken on September 30th, 2018 at 6:46 pm). Mo Salah was hauled off in the second half of Liverpool draw at Chelsea on the weekend in the EPL, and he looks short of confidence. Daniel Sturridge, who scored their equaliser in that game with an absolute peach from 30 yards, is a decent enough 3/2 anytime goalscorer option to have a look at for the game anyway* (betting odds taken on September 30th, 2018 at 6:46 pm). Liverpool's record in Europe against Italian teams is W10 D7 L10. Last season away from home in the group stage Liverpool only went W1 D2 and then turned around to post a W2 L1 record in three knockout stage away games. Their only loss was in Italy against Roma.

Napoli v Liverpool Head to Head

The only previous time that these two met was in the 2010 Europa League. There was a 0-0 between the two out in Italy and then Liverpool posted a comfortable 3-1 win back on home soil against them.

Napoli v Liverpool Predictions

The Italians are not going to be a pushover at all in this one and haven't done bad on home soil recently in Europe.  With the experienced hand of Carlo Ancelotti a Napoli Double Chance has a bit of appeal moving forward into this game.

Tottenham v Barcelona Prediction & Betting Tips – 3rd October 2018

Tottenham
Tottenham v Barcelona UEFA Champions League, 3rd October 8.00pm Tottenham needs to come up with something in this one at Wembly aginast Barcelona in midweek. Spurs lost their opening group stage game against Inter and will be really up against it if they fall to the Catalans. However, Barcelona are not running in great form at the moment, being winless in three. Read our Tottenham v Barcelona betting tips for more.

Tottenham v Barcelona Betting Odds*

Barcelona 19/20 Tottenham 5/2 Draw 14/5 * (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on September 29th, 2018 at 11.35 p.m.) [bbutton bookmaker="bet365"]

Tottenham News and Form

Spurs have somewhat recovered from their little slump of three straight defeats, which included a loss against Inter on match day one of the Champions League. Premier League wins out at Brighton and Huddersfield sandwiched a penalty shootout EFL Cup win over Watford over the last week. In their game against Inter, Spurs were looking in some control after Christian Eriksen had given them the lead in the second half. But they shipped two goals in the last five minutes of the game to suffer a hammer-blow of a loss. They have been shaky at the back this season and both teams to score at 1/2 odds* (betting odds taken on September 30th, 2018 at 9:39 pm). So already they are worse off than they were in last season’s Group Stage where they posted a great W5 D1 record. Spurs have won three of their last four home games in Europe (L1) but only have the one clean sheet in those games. Tottenham have managed just the two clean sheets in their last ten European fixtures. It is a little tricky to find a good balance in the over/under market with under 3.5 at 8/13 odds* (betting odds taken on September 30th, 2018 at 9:39 pm).

Tottenham v Barcelona 2018 Infographic

Barcelona News and Form

Barcelona’s form has taken a bit of a dip with a run of three winless matches. They have gone D2 L1 in their last three games, all in La Liga. So that has been a big drop off after they had won their opening six games of the season across all competitions. They are still on a streak of having scored in every game played this season, so they should be backed to get on the scoresheet. In the bet365 correct score market a Barcelona 2-1 is at 15/2 odds* (betting odds taken on September 30th, 2018 at 9:39 pm) and a very appealing option for Tottenham v Barcelona betting tips. Given that Barcelona have just been through a few struggles recently we have to look at the opportunity of them getting a win, but not by a big margin. A Barcelona to win by a one-goal margin is at 3/1 odds* (betting odds taken on September 30th, 2018 at 9:39 pm). On match day one of this season’s Champions League Barcelona powered their way to a 4-0 home win over PSV. With ten men. Lionel Messi scored a hattrick in that game. Out on the road, this season across all competitions Barcelona are W2 L1 with that loss happening against La Liga bottom side Leganes last week.

Tottenham v Barcelona Head to Head

The previous games between Spurs and Barcelona were in the European Cup Winners Cup back in 1982. There was a 1-1 draw in London before Barcelona took a 1-0 win back on home soil. That’s the extent of the head to head between them.

Who will win - Tottenham v Barcelona Predictions

We still have to roll with Barcelona coming up with something in this one. They are too good of a side to keep down and there have been defensive weaknesses from Spurs the visitors could exploit. Barcelona to win & both teams to score.

Hoffenheim v Manchester City Predictions & Betting Odds – 2nd October 2018

Manchester City
Hoffenheim v Manchester City Betting Preview - UEFA Champions League 2nd October 5.55pm Manchester City needs to come up with a response to their shock loss on match day one which they suffered against Lyon. They surprisingly went down on home soil in one of the worst displays they have produced under Pep Guardiola. A win out in Germany on Tuesday will start to set the record straight. Read our predictions for the Hoffenheim v Manchester City fixture.

Hoffenheim News and Form

German side Hoffenheim made their debut in the Champions League back on match day one and got a good return with an away point at Shakhtar Donetsk in a 2-2 draw. This is a big home game for them, arguably the biggest home game of their history as they take on the English Champions. This is going to be some occasion for them. Hoffenheim hold a W3 D2 L3 record for the season across all competitions and all but one of those fixtures have produced at least three goals. For our Hoffenheim v Man City predictions we are looking over 3.5 goals at even money with this one* (betting odds taken on September 30th, 2018 at 3:34 pm). This will actually only be Hoffenheim's third home game of the season, in their previous two beating Freiburg and taking a great draw against Borussia Dortmund in the Bundesliga. They have hit the back of the net every game played this season. Florian Grillitsch and Havard Nordtveit got their goals on match day one. Their shortest priced option in the anytime goalscorer market for the game is Brazilian Joelinton. They are naturally going off as underdogs in this one, but if they could hustle their way to a point that would be a tremendous return from them.

Manchester City News and Form

Manchester City churned out one of their worst performances seen under Pep Guardiola on match day one. They were slack, unimaginative and uninspired as they slumped to a defeat against Lyon. So that puts them on the back foot early in the Champions League but that game aside, they have been strong. They have won eight of their other nine matches played (D1) in all competitions. They have won each of their last three games after beating Brighton in the Premier League on the weekend. That’s ten goals scored in their last three and each of those games yielded a clean sheet for them too. Given their drop in standards on match day one though we are looking at a Man City 2-1 correct score at 15/2 odds* (betting odds taken on September 30th, 2018 at 3:34 pm). The Citizens are unbeaten on their travels this season. They have put up numbers of W4 D1 away from the Etihad and have conceded in just one of those. Sergio Aguero is a at 8/11 in the anytime goalscorer market* (betting odds taken on September 30th, 2018 at 3:34 pm). In last season's group stage City posted a W5 L1 record so they could recover and still match what they produced last season, where they won the group. A Manchester City to win & both teams to score option is at 6/4 odds for the game* (betting odds taken on September 30th, 2018 at 3:34 pm) which looks a reasonable punt. Manchester City’s record against German sides is W9 D3 L7.

Hoffenheim v Manchester City Head to Head

Manchester City and Hoffenheim will be meeting for the first time ever in this fixture.

Hoffenheim v Manchester City Predictions

We are going to back Manchester City to come up with a much better performance and output than they did on match day one. They have produced some good performances since then and we are going to back Man City to win & both teams to score for our Hoffenheim v Manchester City predictions.

Manchester United v Valencia Predictions & Betting Odds – 2nd October 2018

Manchester United
Manchester United v Valencia Betting Preview - UEFA Champions League 2nd October 8.00pm After another Premier League defeat on the weekend, things seem to be falling apart at the seams a bit for Manchester United. The Red Devils did win their opening group stage of the Champions League though, beating Young Boys. They get a visit from Valencia at Old Trafford in midweek and the Spaniards haven’t been running in great form themselves. Read our predictions for the Manchester United v Valencia fixture.

Manchester United News and Form

What next for the Red Devils who look to be in a bit of a mess? That is a three-match winless streak that they are on across all competitions. It has been a rough week for them, with a draw against the newly promoted Wolves and a loss against West Ham in the Premier League. Sandwiching those results was an EFL Cup defeat against Championship side Derby. Not much is going right on or off the field for the Red Devils and United have only claimed one clean sheet in their last five games. Last season Manchester United's Champions League campaign came undone against a Spanish side, Sevilla. The Red Devils picked up a 3-0 win at Champions League debutants Young Boys on match day one, but they had their scares in that match at the back. Given the history between Manchester United and Vaelncia, then you are probably going to want to follow the trend of low scoring, tight games. In the bet365 correct to score market a 1-1 draw is trading at 13/2 odds. Given what has happened to them this season, they can’t take any game lightly at the moment. Romelu Lukaku, who is on a five-match scoreless streak (all competitions) is the first goalscorer favourite.

Valencia News and Form

There has not been great momentum for Valencia this season yet. They collected a league win over Sociedad over the weekend and that was their first success of the term in any competitions. Only one of their games this season have reached three goals (all competitions) so it is hard to expect this one to be a high-scoring affair. Valencia posted a 2-0 loss out at Juventus in their opening Champions League game this season. So far this season on their travels, Valencia are W1 D2 L1. Valencia haven’t done all that bad at the back actually as they have collected a clean sheet in three of the last five games. They have earned two in their last three games, so overall they have been hard to break down. But going forward they are lacking a touch of scoring power and that is hampering them. They have failed to score in three of their last five as well, with just the two goals recorded in that sequence. For Manchester United v Valencia predictions there is the option of both teams not to score at 19/20 odds* (betting odds taken on September 30th, 2018 at 6:46 pm) if you wanted to run with that.

Manchester United v Valencia Head to Head

This will be the ninth meeting between Manchester United and Valencia. The most recent meetings were in 2010. Manchester United are W2 D4 in their last six meetings, all of which have been in the Champions League. Overall in the eight meetings, it is Man Utd ahead W2 D5 L2 against the Spaniards. Each of the last five meetings have ended under 2.5 goals. Three of the four, including the last two at Old Trafford have ended in a draw.

Manchester United v Valencia Predictions

We don’t see either quite having enough in them to go and pick up a win in this one. Manchester United are just not looking confident and Valencia are not doing enough to win games because of a lack of scoring power.

Young Boys v Manchester United Predictions & Betting Odds – 19th September 2018

Manchester United
Young Boys v Manchester United Betting Preview - UEFA Champions League 19th September 7.45pm Manchester United make their entrance into the UEFA Champions League and they can be pretty happy with the draw that they have ahead of them. The Red Devils will be looking to get themselves eased into the tournament without too many scares or thrills against a side making their tournament debut. Read our predictions for the Young Boys v Manchester United fixture.

Young Boys News and Form

Young Boys have a big season ahead of them as this is their first action in the main draw of the UEFA Champions League. They came through the qualification play-off against Dinamo Zagreb to create this piece of history. Last season they had lost at that last qualifying stage and went down to the Europa League group stage when they failed to make it out of the group. Their overall record in the Champions League, which up to this point has been in qualification, is W11 D7 L15. This is a tough opening game for them against one of the game’s biggest names. Young Boys have posted six wins from six games played in the domestic league this season, but they don't get to face anyone of its calibre there. For our Young Boys v Manchester United predictions we are looking at both teams not to score is at 19/20 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from September 15th, 2018 at 11:35 p.m.). Manchester United’s defence hasn’t looked the sharpest this season to be fair, but we can see the Young Boys struggling to get at them. Young Boys have a W1 D1 L4 record from previous matches against English sides.

Manchester United News and Form

Things seem to be settling down at Manchester United after they made it back to back wins with a win over Watford on the weekend. That was a tricky test which they came through then at Vicarage Road. So Jose Mourinho looks a bit more secure in his job at the moment than it did at the end of August after back to back losses against Brighton and Spurs. Manchester United to win to nil appeals at 2/1 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from September 15th, 2018 at 11:35 p.m.). Romelu Lukaku is in good scoring form for Manchester United so he has been delivering well early into the season. Lukaku is a strong first goalscorer favorite at 15/4 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from September 15th, 2018 at 11:35 p.m.) for the match. Manchester United haven’t been producing great attacking stuff all season but they have come up with at least two goals in all but one of their games regardless. It is just the points that are important for the Red Devils in this one, not the performance. Because of that and them not needing to exert themselves, a Manchester United 1-0 correct score option is at 13/2 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from September 15th, 2018 at 11:35 p.m.).

Young Boys v Manchester United Head to Head

Young Boys and Manchester United have never met before.

Young Boys v Manchester United Predictions

Manchester United have to be expected to get the win on the board in this one. It is one of those games that will probably end up being a low-key affair and the Red Devils just have to produce a level-headed professional performance. We are backing an away win by a one-goal margin for our Young Boys v Manchester United predictions.

Valencia v Juventus Predictions & Betting Odds – 19th September 2018

Champions League Betting
Valencia v Juventus Betting Preview - UEFA Champions League 19th September 7.45pm Cristiano Ronaldo will be making a trip back to Spain as Juventus make a visit to Valencia in midweek to start their UEFA Champions League campaign. The Old Lady are one of the front-runners to get their hands on the title this season, as they picked up CR7 specifically for this European action. Can he help guide the Italians to a win against a Valencia side who have yet to get themselves doing this season? Read our predictions for the Valencia v Juventus fixture.

Valencia News and Form

Valencia have collected just a D3 L1 record in the new La Liga season, so it hasn’t been the greatest of starts from them. They have returned just the three goals so far in their four games and to be fair their defence hasn’t been all that bad. But they are going to come under some big pressure in his one as this is a massively difficult game for them. The first option for our Valencia v Juventus predictions is Juventus to win to nil which is at 2/1 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from September 15th, 2018 at 11:35 p.m.). This is the first time since the 2015/16 season that Valencia find themselves in the Champions League group stage. On that occasion, they picked up just a W2 D0 L4 record, and only scored in three of those. Valencia have a W2 L3 record in their last five European home fixtures. They haven't managed to pick up a clean sheet in any of their last six at home in Europe either. Five of their last six home fixtures have gone over 2.5 goals. We are going to oppose that and look under 2.5 goals at 3/4 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from September 15th, 2018 at 11:35 p.m.) as Juve are so strong.

Juventus News and Form

After what seemed like forever, the wait for Cristiano Ronaldo to get his first Juventus goal is over as he netted a brace in their win over Sassuolo on the weekend. Will, that now open the floodgates? Ronaldo is the 11/4 first goalscorer favourite for the match which is probably going to appeal a lot for punters* (Betting Odds were taken from September 15th, 2018 at 11:35 p.m.). Juventus are one of the leading contenders to win the Champions League this season and they certainly have the squad in place to make a deep run. In their first European away games last season Juventus picked up a W3 D1 L1 record. They are very good out on the road in Europe and they have suffered just the one defeat in their last eleven road games in the competition (not including the 2017 Final). They are powerful and strong and a Juventus 1-0 correct score option appeals greatly at 11/2 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from September 15th, 2018 at 11:35 p.m.). It has been four wins from four for Juventus this season in all competitions, three of those have been by a one-goal margin.

Valencia v Juventus Head to Head

This will be the first meeting between Juventus and Valencia.

Valencia haven’t quite gotten themselves up and running and the opposite can be said of Juventus. We can see the Italians doing a good enough job out on the road to bank themselves a win in this opener. The away win tops our Valencia v Juventus predictions.

Real Madrid v Roma Predictions & Betting Odds – 19th September 2018

Champions League Betting
Real Madrid v Roma Predictions & Betting Odds - 19th September 2018 This will be an interesting challenge for Real Madrid who have to go into this opening match of their title defence without the man who has carried them to so much of their European success, namely Cristiano Ronaldo. Without him they have made a decent start to their domestic campaign. Even though Roma can be a tricky side to face up against, the Italians make the trip to Spain as heavy underdogs. Read our predictions for the Real Madrid v Roma fixture.

Real Madrid News and Form

Real Madrid are on the hunt for their fourth consecutive Champions League title. They are going to have to do it without Cristiano Ronaldo, the man who helped them achieve such glory during his time with the club. They have been performing well without him on the domestic front having put up a W4 D1 record in their opening five games of the new La Liga season. On the weekend they dug themselves out of a deficit to earn a draw at Athletic Bilbao with Isco getting the equalizer for them. Given the quality that he and Marco Asensio have in particular, they both look like good options at 11/8 in the anytime goalscorer market* (Betting Odds were taken from September 15th, 2018 at 11:35 p.m.). Their head coach Julen Lopetegui enters into his first Champions League match for Real Madrid. Last season they didn’t actually win their group, not that it stopped them from earning success, as Tottenham topped their section. This looks as if it will be a good test for them but even despite a couple of cracks that has been there in their back line, we are going for the bold option in our Real Madrid v Roma predictions of Real Madrid to win to nil at 13/8 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from September 15th, 2018 at 11:35 p.m.). Real Madrid went W2 D1 in their three group stage games from last season.

Roma News and Form

Roma made an unexpected run to the semi-finals of the Champions League last season where they found Liverpool too much to handle. The Italians haven’t been going well out on the road because they have taken just the one victory in their last fifteen road games in Europe which is pretty bad. They have lost four of their last five on their travels as well and they conceded at least two goals in each of those defeats as well. In the bet365 correct score market, a Real Madrid 2-0 option is at 8/1 odds which we quite like the look of* (Betting Odds were taken from September 15th, 2018 at 11:35 p.m.). Roma have posted a W1 D2 L1 record this season from their action, picking up a 2-2 draw at home against Chievo in league action over the weekend. The big concern over them will be their defence as they seem to be at sixes and sevens. Roma have conceded at least two goals in each of their last three games. Going up against the reigning European champions the last thing they need is a weak defense. The main striker option Edin Dzeko has only come up with the one goal this season and that was in their season opener. At the end of the day because the group also consists of CSKA Moscow and Viktoria Plzen a draw would be a decent return for the Italians.

Real Madrid v Roma Head to Head

There has been a fair chunk of UEFA Champions League history between the two sides. They were together in 2016 Champions League action with Real Madrid banking back to back 2-0 wins over the Italians. From their previous Champions League meetings, Real Madrid holds a W6 D1 L3 record against Roma. Surprisingly their home record at the Bernabeu is W2 D1 L2 against Roma.

Real Madrid v Roma Predictions

We see something of a routine home win being produced by Real Madrid in this one. They have looked pretty organised and strong under Lopetegui and we can see them collecting the home win to nil.

Manchester City v Lyon Predictions & Betting Odds – 19th September 2018

Manchester City
Manchester City v Lyon Betting Preview - UEFA Champions League 19th September 7.45pm The Citizens are one of the front-runners to win this season’s UEFA Champions League and they will be looking for a positive start at the Etihad in midweek. City are a tough side to get the better of on home soil. They will be taking on a Lyon side who have had nothing more than an average start to their new domestic season. Read our predictions for the Manchester City v Lyon fixture.

Manchester City News and Form

Manchester City will be looking to express themselves on home soil in this Champions League opener. They have been delivering what has come to be expected of them this season with a W5D1 record in all competitions this season, which includes their Community Shield triumph. Manchester City have come up with at goals in each of their victories so we can expect some kind of decent output from them in this one. For our Manchester City v Lyon predictions a Manchester City to win by a two-goal margin is priced at 3/1 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from September 15th, 2018 at 11:35 p.m.). They are one of the favourites to get their hands on the Champions League title this season. Last term they had that shock quarter-final exit at the hands of Liverpool, which was after the Citizens had been such strong favourites for the tie. This season it has been a real team effort in front of goal and out of all that we like Raheem Sterling as an option at 4/5 odds in the anytime goalscorer market* (Betting Odds were taken from September 15th, 2018 at 11:35 p.m.). The Citizens have lost their last two home games in Europe by a 2-1 scoreline (Basel and Liverpool) so need to shake that off. Before that, they were undefeated in thirteen at the Etihad. City are unbeaten their last eight group stage home games, winning seven. Their record against French sides is W2 D2 L1.

Lyon News and Form

It is a little hard to see how Lyon can show up and prove to be a big threat to Manchester City at the Etihad in midweek. The French outright have a mixed bag of results in Ligue 1 this season with a W2 D1 L2 record. They have scored six goals in that sequence which is the joint second-lowest tally of the current top eight in the French top flight. Lyon are here courtesy of their third place finish in Ligue 1 last term where they were the second-highest scorers. They can be backed at 8/11 To Score in the match* (Betting Odds were taken from September 15th, 2018 at 11:35 p.m.). This is going to be a big test for them. This is Lyon's return to Champions League action for the first time since the 2008/9 season when they made it to the round of sixteen where they were eliminated by Barcelona. Of the eight games that they played that campaign, five of them went over 2.5 goals. For our Manchester City v Lyon prediction we are looking under 3.5 goals at 10/11 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from September 15th, 2018 at 11:35 p.m.) which has appeal as we think City can win this to nil.

Manchester City v Lyon Head to Head

This will be the first meeting between the two sides.

Manchester City v Lyon Predictions

Manchester City looked back in fine shape on the weekend as they powered their way to yet another domestic home win. We expect them to be strong on home soil and feel that they can take the win by a margin of a couple of goals, so that tops out Manchester City v Lyon predictions.

Monaco v Atletico Madrid Predictions & Betting Odds – 18th September 2018

Champions League Betting
Monaco v Atletico Madrid Betting Preview - UEFA Champions League 18th September 7.45pm Atletico Madrid haven’t quite had the start to the season that they would have wanted in La Liga after having made some hugely positive signings over the summer. It hasn’t quite clicked for them. They hit the road in midweek and take on a Monaco side who are having some struggles of their own. They have had a poor start to their Ligue 1 campaign with just the one win on the board. Read our predictions for the Monaco v Atletico Madrid fixture.

Monaco News and Form

It was a terrible showing from Monaco last season in the Champions League. They finished bottom of a pretty easy group without getting a win on the board. They got just the two points, in the end, conceding a total of sixteen goals. They were up against Besiktas, Porto and RB Leipzig in that group. They seem to be in a bit of a decline and slump and the start of the new domestic season hasn’t gone well yet. After a 1-1 draw at Toulouse on the weekend, it leaves Monaco with just a w1 D2 L3 record for the season in all competitions now. Monaco have claimed just the one clean sheet this term. In our Monaco v Atletico Madrid predictions, both teams NOT to score appeals at 3/4 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from September 15th, 2018 at 11:35 p.m.). Monaco just look like nothing more than average at best and they could struggle to break down a tough Atletico side, even though the Spaniards aren’t in great form. We don't really fancy them to score, but if you are looking at an option then Youri Tielemans may be worth a look as he has one in each of his last two games. They have fallen a long way since their semi-final appearance in 2017. They are just D2 L6 in their last eight European games.

Atletico Madrid News and Form

Atletico Madrid were just off colour last season in the Champions League, they just didn’t perform. They finished third in their group behind Chelsea and Roma but it all worked out as they dropped to the Europa League and won the title there. They struggled going forward last season in the Champions League and produced just a W1 D4 L1 record. They made some good signings over the summer, but all the pieces haven’t come together yet because following a 1-1 home draw with Eibar on the weekend in La Liga, it has left Atletico Madrid at W1 D3 L1 for the season. So things are not clicking for the Spaniards and under 2.5 goals is at 4/6 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from September 15th, 2018 at 11:35 p.m.). Atletico Madrid have failed to win any of their last five road games in Europe now and they have also failed to net in three of their last four away from home. Still, if you compare the two squads, they definitely beat the overall quality of Monaco. In the correct score market for our Monaco v Atletico Madrid predictions on Atletico 1-0 is at 5/1 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from September 15th, 2018 at 11:35 p.m.).

Liverpool v PSG Predictions & Betting Odds – 18th September 2018

Liverpool
Liverpool v PSG Betting Preview - UEFA Champions League 18th September 7.45pm This is going to be a great showdown between two very good sides who could well be in the running for the title. Both have started their respective domestic seasons strongly and this has the potential of being a great, open clash between two very strong sides. Can Liverpool land a huge marker in their group by landing an opening win on home soil? Read our predictions for the Liverpool v PSG fixture.

Liverpool News and Form

Liverpool landed an away win at Spurs over the weekend in the Premier League and that leaves them with a perfect start to the top flight action. There were more signs of their strengths this season in that game, but their 2-1 win could have been much bigger. They wasted a lot of chances in the game, largely down to Mo Salah and Sadio Mane being extremely selfish in the match instead of playing for the team. The notable difference about Liverpool this season is their defensive improvement and they have conceded only two goals in five games this term. This is a tough one against a powerful attack and we are going with both teams to score at 4/9 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from September 15th, 2018 at 11:35 p.m.) in our Liverpool v PSG betting tips.

Liverpoos v PSG 2018 Infographic

Liverpool won their group last season with a W3 D3 record, producing 23 goals in their matches in total. Despite of all, they looked really sloppy at times and it wasn’t always comfortable for them. They look stronger this season though and this is such an important match in the group. In terms of winning the group, that’s going to be a tough ask if they lose this one on home soil to start off with. There are two powerful attacking sides squaring off in midweek and over 3.5 goals is going to take our fancy at 11/10 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from September 15th, 2018 at 11:35 p.m.). The two attacks on show have it in them to produce. Liverpool are unbeaten in sixteen European games (W11 D5).

PSG News and Form

As to be expected, PSG are in terrific form having won six games out of six in all competitions this season. Not only that they have managed to produce at least three goals in each and every game they have played in this season. There have been only the one clean sheet from them through in their last four, so it’s definitely worth considering the both teams to score option. They have an embarrassment of riches in attack and Edinson Cavani and Neymar are both at the 4/5 odds mark in the anytime goalscorer market* (Betting Odds were taken from September 15th, 2018 at 11:35 p.m.). A win at Anfield for them in this one would totally put them in the driving seat to collect the group win. The rest of the group is made up of Red Star Belgrade and Napoli. PSG powered their way to a group win last season but the dice didn’t land well for them in the round of sixteen draw. They were put up against Real Madrid who had failed to win their group, and it was the Spaniards who came out on top comfortably, with PSG suffering because of Neymar’s injury. PSG posted a W5 L1 record in the group stage, scoring 25 goals along the way. When you have two very strong sides it make life harder for correct score predictions. In their two previous away games this season, PSG have scored seven goals. If anyone in Europe can silence Anfield, PSG have the potential to do so.

Liverpool v PSG Head to Head

This will be just the second meeting between the two sides. The previous meetings happened back in the 1997 European Cup Winners Cup. The two games produced home wins and both of those wins were with a clean sheet as well. That’s really all the trend that there is to go on.

Liverpool v PSG Predictions

There really should be no quarter given by either of those two who look as if they will match up evenly against each other. But we are going to swing with home advantage and Liverpool producing a home win looks plenty of value to jump on for our Liverpool v PSG predictions.
