Today’s football betting tips will be focusing on the UEFA Champions League action from Tuesday night.

Half of the group stage will be wrapped up in the evening and with some interesting action coming up for Manchester United.

They have to avoid defeat against RB Leipzig to guarantee qualification.

We have four matches on view for football betting for today.


Best Football Betting Tips Today: RB Leipzig v Manchester United

Not an easy game to finish with for the Red Devils who are at 15/8 to pick up the win in this fixture.

United, Leipzig and PSG all sat on nine points with everything to play for on Matchday Six.

A draw will be enough for the Red Devils on the night as that guarantees that they finish above Leipzig, who they thrashed 5-0 on Matchday Two.

Front their previous trips to Germany, Manchester United have taken five wins from fifteen previous visits (D4 L6).

This will be their first visit there since losing to Wolfsburg in the 2015/16 group Stage.

That’s three straight losses that United have away against Bundesliga opposition.

A win guarantees Leipzig a place in the round of sixteen. A draw would be good enough, only if PSG lose against Istanbul Basaksehir on the night.

They have had just one previous visit to England in UEFA action and that was against Spurs in the round of sixteen earlier this year.

Leipzig earned a 1-0 win at Tottenham in that one.

RB Leipzig are 5/4 to get that crucial win on Tuesday.

It is a three-match home winning streak that they are on at the moment, going W4 D1 in their last five such games.

We think that they have enough to rattle the Red Devils for whom, clean sheets have become a rare thing.

RB Leipzig to win at 5/4

Football Betting Picks Today: Ajax v Atalanta

This is action from Group D, which has already been won by Liverpool.

But for football betting for today, we are looking for a winner-take-all prize of second place in this game.

Atalanta are in the driving seat to some extent, because a draw will see the Italians get through in second place.

So they have that little cushion but are the 9/5 underdogs for the match win.

They haven’t been in the hottest of form, winning just one of their last six games in all competitions.

They collected a 2-0 win at Liverpool in their last away game in the group, albeit against an understrength Reds side.

This won’t be an easy game in Amsterdam, because Ajax have to come out and go for broke.

Only a win for the Dutch club is good enough on the night to take second place.

Ajax lost at Liverpool in the last round of action and they don’t have a great winning record against Italian teams.

Ajax are W4 D9 L5 on home turf in UEFA action against sides from Serie A.

When these two met back on Matchday Two in Bergamo there was a thrilling 2-2 draw played out.

Neither have been particularly great in this group, but Atalanta do appear to carry a bit more of an attacking threat.

So we think this balances out to another draw.

Draw at 14/5

Football Betting Tips for Today: Barcelona v Juventus

No surprise really that this is a duel for the top spot in Group G and at the end of the day it looks like going to Barcelona.

The Spaniards have won all five games in the group stage so far, which includes a 2-0 win in Turin.

They are 21/20 to do the double over Juventus and the last time that they hosted The Old Lady, back in September 2017, Barca won 3-0.

Barca are W5 D4 L3 against Juventus in UEFA action.

They are undefeated in their last seven games against Italian opposition and hold a W19 D6 L2 home record against Serie A visitors.

It’s hard to know just how either team are really going to approach this fixture. Both have already qualified, Barcelona are unlikely to be knocked off top spot.

Bet at Bet365

Juventus have to score three goals at least and win by a big enough margin that overturns their 2-0 home loss against Barca.

That would put them ahead of the Spaniards in the head-to-head. It seems unlikely.

Juventus are 5/2 in the match outright for the win.

That’s why we think that Juventus aren’t going to be too interested here because they have secured qualification already.

They are in form, winning four of their last five games in all competitions (D1).

But they have only won three of their last eleven games in Spain (D3 L5). Overall their record there is W6 D7 L17.

We think the home side just edge it as they will be looking for some kind of response to a shock domestic league defeat on the weekend.

Barcelona to win at 21/20

Online Betting Football Tip: Lazio v Club Brugge

This is a fight for qualification in Group F and that is open for both of these, so we should get a good game.

Football betting for today has Lazio as the 7/10 odds-on favourites to pick up the win.

The Italians dug out a good draw at Borussia Dortmund in the last round of action to remain in second place in the table.

They are two points ahead of Brugge, so a draw at home suits the Italians on the night.

It was a draw between Lazio and Club Brugge when they met earlier in this campaign and three of Lazio’s five group stage games have ended in a draw (all 1-1 scoreline).

Nothing but a win does it for Club Brugge on the night. They opened their campaign with an away win at Zenit.

But then they were humbled in a 3-0 loss at Dortmund in their other group away game.

Club Brugge are the 15/4 underdogs in this one and their record against Italians clubs isn’t great.

The Belgians are W5 D4 L10 overall and just two of those successes have come from their nine previous trips to Italy.

Lazio to win at 7/10
