UEFA Champions League Betting: Match Day 2 Preview

UEFA Champions League Betting: Match Day 2 Preview

Arsenal Vs Olympiacos Piraeus
19:45 PM, 29 Sep
Arsenal will be looking to bounce back from their loss against Dinamo Zagreb from match day 1 where they were clueless and short of ideas. Their task will probably be made harder in the game against Olympiakos by the absence of Olivier Giroud who was red carded in the game against Dinamo. Arsenal though has won their last 2 games in all competitions. Olympiakos also unsurprisingly lost their first game of this UEFA Champions League season against Bayern Munich, and they will also be looking to claim their first three points of the campaign. Olympiakos have won 4 of their last 5 games, and confidence is pretty high right now.

Form Guide
Arsenal: W3 L2            |          Olympiakos: W4 L1

Betting Odds:
Arsenal Fc 1.38                       Draw 4.75                   Olympiacos Piraeus 8.50

Arsenal Vs Olympiacos Piraeus

 

Barcelona Vs Bayer Leverkusen
19:45 PM, 29 Sep
Barcelona will be without the services of Superstar Lionel Messi who is out for 8 weeks with a knee injury, but Bayer Leverkusen will know better than to be complacent against a Barcelona outfit who possess more than enough firepower in the likes of Neymar and Luis Suarez. Barcelona has been somewhat inconsistent recently, but they will be confident against a Leverkusen side that they have never lost against in the 5 games they have played to date. Leverkusen has won their last two games, and they also won their first match against Bate Borisov.

Form Guide
Barcelona: W3 D1 L1              |          Bayer Leverkusen: W3 L2

Betting Odds:
Fc Barcelona 1.38                   Draw 4.75                   Bayer 04 Leverkusen 9.00

Bate Borisov Vs Roma
19:45 PM, 29 Sep
Bate Borisov were convincingly beaten by Bayer Leverkusen in their first match of the UCL at group stage ,and they will be coming up against a Roma side brimming with confidence after securing a valuable 1-1 draw against Barcelona in Match Day 1. Although, their domestic form hasn’t been so good, Roma will fancy their chances.

Form Guide
Bate Borisov: W3 D1 L2          |          Roma: W2 D2 L1

Bayern Munich Vs Dinamo Zagreb
19:45 PM, 29 Sep
Both teams have been in stunning form since the beginning of the season, and while Bayern’s win against Olympiakos was expected, Dinamo Zagreb’s win against Arsenal was labelled an upset. The match promises to be quite entertaining.

Form Guide
Bayern Munich: W5                |          Dinamo Zagreb:   W4 D1

Betting Odds:
Fc Bayern München 1.08                    Draw 12.00                 NK Dinamo Zagreb 35.00

 Bayern Munich Vs Dinamo Zagreb

 

Macabi Tel Aviv Vs Dynamo Kyiv
19:45 PM, 29 Sep
Macabi Tel Aviv will definitely not be looking forward to this game, their form has been very poor recently, and that is a distinct difference in fortune between them and Dynamo Kyiv who have been in great form in the last few games. Macabi Tel Aviv were convincingly beaten by 4 goals to nothing against Chelsea in match day 1 while Dynamo were held to a 2 all draw against 2004 UCL winners FC Porto.

Form Guide
Macabi Tel Aviv: W1 D2 L2    |          Dynamo Kyiv: W4 D1

Betting Odds:
Maccabi Tel Aviv 4.00                        Draw 3.40                   Dynamo Kiev 1.95

Macabi Tel Aviv Vs Dynamo Kyiv

 

Olympique Lyonnais Vs Valencia
19:45 PM, 29 Sep
Both teams will have to improve their respective forms if they wish to win any significant silverware or have football betting fans trust them this season. Both teams failed to win their first games of the UCL season, while Lyon got a draw away from home against Gent, Valencia were beaten 3-2 at home by Zenit St Petersburg. Both teams will be looking to win to maybe change their fortunes this season.

Form Guide
Olympique Lyon: W1 D3 L1    |          Valencia: W2 D1 L2

Betting Odds:
Olympique Lyonnais 2.75                   Draw 3.20                   CF Valencia 2.70

 Olympique Lyonnais Vs Valencia

FC Porto Vs Chelsea
19:45 PM, 29 Sep
Chelsea seem to be gradually turning their season around as they are beginning to pick up wins; although their momentum was altered a bit when they could only manage a 2-2 draw against Newcastle in their last game. FC Porto hasn’t lost any of their last 5 games, and in their first game of the UCL season. It was honours even against Dynamo Kyiv and they will be hoping to get a win against a Chelsea side whom they don’t have the best of records against, as both teams have played 5 times, and Porto has only won once with Chelsea winning 3 and one of the games ending in a draw.

Form Guide
FC Porto: W3 D2         |          Chelsea:  W3 D1 L1

Betting Odds:
FC Porto 2.55                       Draw 3.20                   Chelsea FC 2.90

 FC Porto Vs Chelsea

 

Astana Vs Galatasaray
17:00 PM, 30 Sep
Astana were victorious in their first game against Apoel Nicosia, and will hope it wasn’t just a flash in the pan when they host Galatasaray who unsurprisingly lost to Atletico Madrid in their opening game. Both teams have only lost one out of their last 5 games, and will be confident in their ability to get a win.

Form Guide
Astana: W2 D2 L1       |          Galatasaray: W3 D1 L1

Betting Odds:
Fc Astana 3.10             Draw 3.30                   Galatasaray 2.40

 Astana Vs Galatasaray

 

Atletico Madrid Vs SL Benfica
17:00 PM, 30 Sep
Atletico Madrid will definitely want to bounce back from their midweek loss to Villareal when they host a Benfica team who have been in great form of late. Benfica though will have to guard against complacency, and they will need to nullify the threat posed by French forward Antoine Griezmann who has been superb this season. Benfica will be confident as they have won all but one of their last 5 games.

Form Guide
Atletico Madrid: W3 L2          |          Benfica: W4 L1

Betting Odds:
Atletico Madrid 1.55               Draw 3.80                   SL Benfica 7.00

Atletico Madrid Vs SL Benfica 

 

Borussia Monchengladbach Vs Manchester City
19:45 PM, 30 Sep
Manchester City has been on a downward spiral since their loss against Juventus on match day 1, and they were comprehensively beaten 4-1 by Tottenham in their last game. They will need to return to form against Gladbach. It is worth noting that Man City has not failed to score in any game this season, and they will be confident in finding the back of the net. Gladbach have won their last 2 games after losing 3 before that.

Form Guide
Borussia Monchengladbach: W2 L3   |          Manchester City: W2 L3

Betting Odds:
Borussia Mönchengladbach 4.00                   Draw 3.80                   Manchester City 1.85

 Borussia Monchengladbach Vs Manchester City

 

CSKA Moscow Vs PSV
19:45 PM, 30 Sep
CSKA lost their first match against VFL Wolfsburg by a single goal, and perhaps the score line should have been worse as their performance was lacklustre. PSV on the other hand came from a goal down to defeat Manchester United on match day 1, and they will fancy their chances in this game against CSKA.

Form Guide
CSKA Moscow: W2 D2 L1        |          PSV: W4 L1

Betting Odds:
CSKA Moscow 1.80                 Draw 3.60                   PSV Eindhoven 4.50

 CSKA Moscow Vs PSV

 

Juventus Vs Sevilla
19:45 PM, 30 Sep
The last time these two teams met in July 2009, Juventus were 2-1 winners, and they will hope there can be a repeat of that victory come match day 2. Juventus’ season has been more of a stop-start inconsistent kind of season, and they will be disappointed they lost their last game in Serie A against Napoli. They won their first game in the UCL season when they came from a goal down to win against Manchester City. Sevilla might have won their last game against Rayo Vallecano, but they have been poor this season, and they will be hoping to arrest a slump this time around.

Form Guide
Juventus: W2 D2 L1     |          Sevilla: W2 D1 L2

Betting Odds:
Juventus Turin 1.90                 Draw 3.40                   FC SEVILLA 4.25

 Juventus Vs Sevilla

 

Malmo FF Vs Real Madrid
19:45 PM, 30 Sep
Malmo will need a miracle if they are to claim a win over a Real Madrid side who has been in almost perfect form. Real Madrid has been imperious in attack, and resolute in defence, and they have conceded only one goal in all competitions this season. Malmo unsurprisingly lost 2-0 to PSG in their first game, while Real Madrid thumped Shaktar 4-0 to take control of the group. Malmo will have to do all they can stop Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo who have both been in great form all season long.

Form Guide
Malmo FF: W2 D2 L1              |          Real Madrid: W4 D1

Betting Odds:
Malmö FF 11.00                                  Draw 6.50                   Real Madrid 1.22

Malmo FF Vs Real Madrid 

 

Manchester United Vs Wolfsburg
19:45 PM, 30 Sep
Manchester United is beginning to redeem itself, and since their loss against PSV on match day 1, they have won 3 games in a row. They will be looking to make it 4 when they host VFL Wolfsburg. Wolfsburg won 1-0 on Match day 1 against CSKA Moscow, and they will be looking to pick up where they left off. Both teams met twice in 2009 with United winning both games.

Form Guide
Manchester United: W4 L1     |          Wolfsburg: W2 D2 L1

Betting Odds:
Manchester United 1.75                     Draw 3.60                   VFL Wolfsburg 5.00

 Manchester United Vs Wolfsburg

 

Zenit Vs Gent
Zenit won on match day 1 against Valencia by 3 goals to 2 and they will be confident of another win when they host Gent who avoided defeat against Lyon by drawing 1-1. Both teams haven’t lost any of their last 5 games, and they will be looking to maintain that record when they meet.

Form Guide
Zenit: W2 D3   |          Gent: W3 D2

Betting Odds:
Fc Zenit St Petersburg 1.42                 Draw 4.50                   Kaa Gent 8.00

 Zenit Vs Gent

 

Shaktar Donetsk Vs PSG
19:45 PM – 29 Sep
Shaktar must have gnashed their teeth when they were drawn into a tough group as this, which features both Real Madrid and PSG. Shakhtar lost their opening game to Real Madrid by 4-0. In that game, their fans were given nothing to be happy about, as they lacked ideas. They are coming up against a PSG side who haven’t lost any of their last 5 games including the 2-0 win on match day 1 against Swedish side Malmo FF.

Form Guide
Shaktar: W4 L1            |          PSG: W3 D2

Betting Odds:
Shakhtar Donetsk 4.75                        Draw 3.50                   Paris Saint Germain 1.80

Shaktar Donetsk Vs PSG
