Champions League Tips – Tuesday 18th September

After the excitement of last season’s competition, the Champions League returns for the new season this week in earnest with the first games in the League stage of the competition. 32 teams will battle it out across eight four-league teams with the top two in each progressing into the last sixteen after Christmas.

This year, the Champions League sees some games kicking off each game week at 17.55pm UK time, followed by the remaining games kicking off at 8pm, a different approach that will allow them to maximise live TV coverage of games moreso than having a blanket 7.45pm kick off time.

Tuesday sees two Premier League teams Spurs and Liverpool in action in two massive games, while I have picked two other matches that I feel offer a good chance of a correct tip and decent odds on that tip.

Over the years the Champions League has been kind to me with my accumulator tips, so let’s hope we can get the ball running with a big one on Tuesday night with the following four tips.

Bet Analysis: Tuesday 18th September

Inter Milan v Tottenham – Draw

The four previous games between these teams in European competition have produced plenty of goals and drama, including Gareth Bale’s famous hattrick in Inter’s 4-3 win over Spurs in the 2010 Champions League. Spurs were down to 10-men and 4-0 down at half time before Bale’s heroics which propelled him onto the world stage. Neither side has started this season particularly well and their recent form isn’t great and with PSV Eindhoven and Barcelona also in their group, they will know that a defeat here could be a serious dent in their hopes of qualifying. As such, I think avoiding a defeat, rather than winning, may be the mindset for both teams here and hence a draw is a sensible choice.

Liverpool v Paris St Germain – Home Win

Both of these teams will be hoping for strong Champions League campaigns this season and they are the two favourites to qualify from Group C, which also includes Napoli and Red Star Belgrade. PSG rested Neymar and Kylian Mbappe in their last league game, a 4-0 win over Saint Etienne, and like Liverpool, they have won all five of their opening matches in the league. Liverpool have been playing well without reaching the attacking heights of last season but they’ll need to be at their best here against a very strong PSG team. However, Anfield on a big European night is a special place and I think that will inspire the Reds onto a narrow win here.

AS Monaco v Atletico Madrid – Away Win

Both these teams have surprisingly struggled at the start of the season so far and both are already in danger of falling off the pace set by the teams at the top of their respective leagues.  It will be a quick return to his former home for Atletico Madrid’s French winger Thomas Lemar, and for me it is Atletico that have by far the stronger squad and I think this Monaco team is not a patch on the team that went so well in Europe a few years back. As such, I think that while this games may look close in paper in terms of form, for me Atletico should get off to a winning start here.

Schalke 04 v FC Porto – Draw

Schalke have not got off to a great start this season losing all three of their Bundesliga games and while Porto have been in much better form, they did falter at home recently too. Usually when a team has endured a miserable start to the campaign as Schalke has, I feel that they are unlikely to do much better in Europe, but I also feel that FC Porto are probably one of the easier teams to face in Europe when they are on the road. I don’t think either team will have huge hopes of winning this game, but I do think that Schalke will stop the rot with a point here, although in the longer run in terms of their group, it may be a better point for Porto than the German team.
