Champions League betting tips - Atletico Madrid fight to advance

2019-12-11 10:56:31

The final eight group games of this season's Champions League take place tonight.

Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid have already qualified from Group A. In Group B, Bayern Munich and Spurs are through. Group C has Shakhtar Donetsk and Dinamo Zagreb battling for second place while Group D sees Atletico Madrid and Bayer Leverkusen competing for the knockout stage.

Champions League Betting Tips

Atletico Madrid Vs Lokomotiv Moscow
20:00, UK time
Champions League Group D

Diego Simeone's Atletico Madrid side can progress to the last sixteen with a win over Lokomotiv Moscow at the Wanda Metropolitano. Anything less than a win and it will be out of their hands. If Atleti draw and Bayer Leverkusen manage to beat group winners Juventus in Germany, then Atletico Madrid will slip to third-place and play out the rest of their European competition in the Europa League this season.

I don't think they're going to slip up, however. Atleti have only won one of their last 8 and none of their most recent four games in all competitions. Simeone's men won 2-0 in Russia when the sides met earlier in the group. Tonight, they need to turn on the style. It's a home game against the bottom team in their group. Atleti should be hungry for goals and itching to put some poor team to the sword.

My pick for this game is Atletico Madrid -2 at 7/5 with BetRegal.

Champions League Group D

Juventus have already won Group D so this is no more than a dead-rubber game for the Serie A giants. In contrast, Bayer Leverkusen will hope that a win could put them through to the last sixteen if Atletico Madrid fail to win at home to Lokomotiv Moscow.

I think it will be a hugely eventful game with stars like Kai Havertz and Leon Bailey keen to impress for the Bundesliga side.

I'm going for Bayer Leverkusen double-chance (win or draw) and both teams to score. This is priced at 21/20 right now with Betfred.

Bayern Munich Vs Spurs
20:00, UK time
Champions League Group B

FC Bayern humiliated Spurs in London back in early October, hammering them 7-2 on the night. Spurs have since changed managers and seem to have recovered from that trashing. Both sides are already qualified for the knockout stages so tonight's game won't affect the standings - Bayern Munich have won the group while Spurs have sewn up second place.

Jose Mourinho would love to be the manager who leads Spurs to a turnaround defeat of FC Bayern on their home turf, however. Like in London, there should be goals galore. The result, I believe, is too difficult to predict due to the game's lack of 'importance'. Best to stick with a bet in the goals market.

My pick for this game is both teams to score in the second half. It's at a great price of 6/4 at the moment with bet365.
