Tue/Wed Acca Tips: 17th/18th September 2019

After Liverpool and Chelsea’s victories in the two main European competitions last summer, both the Champions League and Europa League get back underway for real this week with the start of the group stages in each of the competitions.

Tuesday and Wednesday evening sees the first round of matches in the Champions League and four Premier League sides will represent English hopes as Liverpool, Manchester City, Chelsea and Tottenham battle against European’s football elite to lift the coveted trophy.

There are a couple of massive ties taking place this week too and we will be focusing on what these games have to offer, as well as the likely fortunes of the British teams over the course of the six matchdays. The aim of course, being to be one of the two teams from each of the eight groups to reach the knockout phase in 2020.

So without any further ado, here’s my tips for four games taking place this week.

Bet Analysis: Tuesday 17th September

Chelsea v Valencia  – Draw

Frank Lampard’s first big test as Chelsea manager was in the Premier League but the pressure ramps up further as his young side now face a tricky Valencia in the Champions League opener in Group H. Ajax and Lille make up the rest of what is a difficult group and there is no doubt that Chelsea are lacking the spark of genius that Eden Hazard gave to them. Valencia are a tricky side to play against, as Manchester United discovered last season, and they have started this season in typically stoic if not spectacular form. Chelsea’s big problem has been conceding goals (only Norwich have conceded more in the Premier League) and I think Valencia are well set up to score on the counter in this game. As such, I think the best Chelsea can hope for here is a share of the spoils.

Borussia Dortmund v Barcelona – Away Win

With Inter Milan and Slavia Prague in this group, both these teams will know that any sluip-up could be costly as Inter in particular look a more formidable force this season than they have in recent times. As such, I think Barcelona will be approaching this game as one that they must not lose. Their away record in Europe is pretty decent, that night at Anfield apart, and Dortmund have been beaten already in the Bundesliga this season. However, I do feel both these teams are not quite the forces they once were, but I think Messi and co will do just enough to pick up a vital victory here in Germany, but it will be a close one.

Bet Analysis: Wednesday 18th September

Atletico Madrid v Juventus – Draw

These two teams will be meeting for the fourth time in the last six months, three of those games coming in the Champions League and a pre-season friendly just a few weeks back (which Atletico won 2-1 at the Wanda Metropolitano). Atletico also won the home leg of their Champions League clash 2-0, before a Cristiano Ronaldo hat-trick inspired Juventus to a 3-0 win in the home leg to progress. I think this game will be a tighter affair in Group D and with Bayer Leverkusen and Lokomotiv Moscow the other teams in the group, both teams should feel confident of progressing. Juventus look a class act and while their record in Spain is not great, I fancy them to snatch a share the spoils here.

Paris St Ger v Real Madrid – Home Win

This is a game that would be good enough to grace the final, let alone open proceedings in Group A. With Club Brugge and Galatasaray the other two teams in that group, both PSG and Real will be confident of progressing but it will be the outcome of the two games between the teams that will likely decide who finishes top of the group and gets a potentially easier draw in the Round of 32. PSG are top of Ligue 1, but have lost once already this season to Rennes and their spat with Neymar hasn’t let to the most productive atmosphere at the club. Real boss Zinedine Zidane has had his own issue to deal with Gareth Bale but with the Welshman seemingly back in favour, even he hasn’t been able to help Real achieve a decent start as they have drawn two of their three games this season. This will be close but PSG’s home record in Europe is formidable and while Real won on their last trip there, I can’t see them doing so again here. I am going for a narrow home victory.
