Champions League Matchday 4 – 11th & 12th October

We’re back with a quick turnaround between Matchday 3 and 4 in the Champions League this week and all the teams that played last week will now face the reverse fixture and the six points up for grabs across both games could well be pivotal for a number of teams chasing a place in the Knockout Stage in the New Year.

In fact, there are a number of teams that have amassed a 100% record in the group stages thus far that can achieve that with a win in their game this week with the likes of Real Madrid, Manchester City, Napoli, Bayern Munich and perhaps most surprisingly, Club Bruges all able to confirm qualification with a win this week.

However in amongst those games are a number of other key matches that feature teams battling it out to play themselves into a strong position with two matches remaining in the Group Stages and it is perhaps these games that offer us the most intriguing games this week.

PSG and Benfica should be interesting given how close the game was in Lisbon, while there was plenty of needle in the Inter v Barcelona and Marseille v Sporting games last week, while British teams Chelsea and Liverpool will be hoping to continue their better form of late with another key win.

Let’s take a look at the games I have put together for the first of my European Football accumulator bets this week.

AC Milan v Chelsea – Away Win 

Chelsea put Milan to the sword last week earning a 3-0 win that puts them right back in contention in this group after a slow start, but the Londoners will know that only another positive performance here will cement the benefits that last weeks victory gave them. With Salzburg leading the group, but away in Zagreb against Dinamo, Chelsea know a win here could be enough to take them top of the group. The Londoners have a good record away from home in Europe in the main, especially against top sides while AC Milan’s record at home against Premier League sides isn’t the best of late. As such, while this game should be a lot closer, I am still backing Chelsea to land another key win here.

Celtic v Red Bull Leipzig – Away Win

Celtic were beaten 3-1 in Germany last week and after levelling just after half time, they will be disappointed they could not go on and pick up something from the game. Leipzig’s quality in attack though was something that the Scottish Champions don’t experience so often in domestic football and I think it is that which really holds Celtic (and Rangers) back in this competition in particular. Leipzig have some real quality in attack with the likes of Silva, Nkunku, Werner and Szoboszlai and I feel these players are set up better to hit on the counter and I can see them having some real joy against Celtic’s back line here, so much so that even if Celtic score, I’d still expect the German side to land the win.

Bet Analysis: Wednesday 12th October

Atletico Madrid v Club Brugge – Draw

For me, no team has been more surprising in this year’s Champions League than Club Brugge. They have won all their three games so far, against FC Porto, Bayer Leverkusen and tonight’s opponents Atletico Madrid and done so scoring seven goals without a single goal being scored against them. Diego Simeone’s team have a great record in this competition but this Atletico side isn’t really near the standard of the teams that enjoyed that success and given how well Club Brugge are playing, I can’t see Atletico landing a win here. That said, I can’t see Club Brugge picking up maximum points here and I actually feel that a low or no scoring draw is the most likely outcome.

Rangers v Liverpool – Away Win

Last week, Liverpool beat Rangers 2-0 at Anfield but in truth the Reds dominance in the game was such that they should really have won by a considerably larger margin. Allan McGregor was superb for Rangers, as were their centre backs, as they thwarted the Reds on so many occasions. The problem for Rangers is that they offered so little in attack at Anfield that I cannot see them being able to sustain real pressure against a Liverpool side that has looked very shaky defensively at times this season. Strangely, I think Rangers being at home may benefit Liverpool somewhat who can hit Rangers in the counter and as such, I am backing the Reds to land another win against the Scottish side here.
