Champions League Acca: Fri 7th & Sat 8th August

As you will probably know if you have read our Europa League tips for this week, we were just one Tottenham goal away from landing a fabulous end of season acca win in the last round of Premier League games and I am hoping that this better run of form will continue forward into this weeks double header of European games.

Hopefully I’ll have celebrated a nice return from my Europa League acca tip for Wednesday and Thursday’s games, but if not, I have bundled together the four Champions League ties taking place at 8pm on Friday and Saturday night this coming week into this rather neat little accumulator.

While many feel the Bayern Munich v Chelsea game looks something of a formality given that Bayern hold a 3-0 lead from the away leg in London, the other three games are far more delicately poised and there is potential for a couple of surprise results in these matches in particular.

All four of the games in the Champions League are second leg ties to be played at the stadium of the home team, but from the quarterfinals onwards, the four winners of these ties, plus Red Bull Leipzig, Paris St Germain, Atalanta and Atletico Madrid will compete in a straight knockout format competition in Lisbon over the quarterfinals, semifinals and final to decide the winner of the tournament.

Here’s the tips for the four games this week and while the odds don’t make it an acca that will set you up for life, it does at least mean there is a decent chance of success!

Bet Analysis: Fri 7th August

Juventus (0) v (1) Lyon – Home Win

For me, this is the one game that could cause an upset. Juventus record at home against Lyon reads three games played, two wins and a draw. Both wins were by a 2-1 margin while the draw was a 1-1 in the last game played in Turin between these teams. Any of those results would be enough for Lyon to progress into the next round of the tournament and the fact Juventus did not get an away goal will loom hugely if Lyon manage to do that. I can see Lyon scoring an away goal and Juventus winning the game, it is whether they do it by enough of a margin to make that away goal immaterial and I am not so sure that they will.

Manchester City (2) v (1) Real Madrid – Home Win

I felt Manchester City were excellent in their 2-1 win over Real Madrid in the Bernebeu. Certainly, it was one of City’s best ever results in European competition, but they now face a Real Madrid side who were crowned La Liga champions after winning all ten of the games since the lockdown and who are in great form. However, City are very strong at home and I would back them to beat any team at the Etihad, even Real Madrid. With that lead from the first leg, I expect City to win by a similar scoreline tonight.

Bet Analysis: Sat 8th August

Barcelona (1) v (1) Napoli – Home Win

It is fair to say that Barcelona were a little lacklustre in the first leg of this tie and Napoli I think will feel that they could have done a little better than picking up a draw. Dries Mertens gave them the lead but they could not hang on to it allowing Griezmann to level for the visitors. That away goal is a huge one in my view as despite being a solid defensive outfit, it is almost impossible to keep Lionel Messi and co quiet for 90 minutes at the Nou Camp, even with no fans present. As such, while this isn’t the strongest Barcelona side I have ever seen, I still feel they will do enough to win this game and the tie.

Bayern Munich (3) v (0) Chelsea – Home Win

For me, this tie is already over. Bayern Munich were so clinically efficient in front of goal against Chelsea in the first leg, that their 3-0 win could easily have been five or six, such was the margin of their domination and the ease with which they cut apart Chelsea. Frank Lampard’s team will know they are returning to the scene of their biggest ever Champions League triumph, when they beat Bayern on their home pitch to win the trophy but that Chelsea team was much more experienced and talented than the current crop of players. Add to that untimely injuries to the likes of Pulisic and Azpilicueta, plus Willian seemingly on his way out of the club and there’s no real prospect for anything other than a solid home win for the German side here.
