UEFA Champions League Group Stage Matchday 1 Betting Analysis and Picks for Sept. 7th Games

Eintracht Frankfurt +115 vs Sporting Lisbon +222 

  • When: Wednesday, September 7 at 12:45 pm ET

Lisbon appears up against it in this match. The road underdog did win their last contest. But before the last, Sporting had lost 2 straight, 0-3 to Porto and 0-2 versus GD Chaves. 

Frankfurt is on a 2-match winning streak. On August 28, Eintracht beat Werder Bremen 4-3. Then in their next match, Frankfurt blasted RB Leipzig 4-0. The home squad wins this. 

Champions League Pick: Eintracht Frankfurt  

Ajax Amsterdam -1.5 +115 vs Glasgow Rangers +1.5 -149 

  • When: Wednesday, September 7 at 12:45 pm ET

Ajax is one of the best teams in the Dutch Eredivisie. Ajax is also on a 5-match winning streak. Amsterdam beat rival SC Cambuur 3-0 on Sep. 3. 

The Glasgow Rangers finished runner up in the Europa League last season. Before losing their last by a 4-0 score to Celtic, the Rangers had played great soccer. On Wednesday, though, Glasgow could suffer the after affects of losing to their top rivals. Ajax can cover the handicap.    

Champions League Pick: Ajax Amsterdam -1.5  

SSC Napoli +260 vs Liverpool FC -102

  • When: Wednesday, September 7 at 3:00 pm ET

Liverpool should have no trouble versus Napoli, but the Reds aren’t in excellent form. In Premier League play, Pool has won 2 with a couple of draws and a loss in their last 5. 

The Reds drew 0-0 versus Everton on Sep. 3. Napoli shows 3 wins and 2 draws. Again, Pool should win, but at the odds, they’re an underlay. 

Champions League Pick: Napoli  

Inter Milano +280 vs Bayern Munich -118

  • When: Wednesday, September 7 at 3:00 pm ET

Wednesday’s top soccer match pits a couple of clubs against each other that are the best in their respective leagues. Bayern has dominated the Bundesliga while Inter has played well enough to keep rival Atalanta in their sights in Serie A. 

Bayern heads into this after drawing 1-1 with Union Berlin. Inter steps onto the pitch after losing 3-2 to rival AC Milan. Bayern is the better team, but Inter will be looking to make amends after the AC loss. The home team is the play.    

Champions League Pick: Inter Milano  

Tottenham Hotspur -1.5 +129 vs Olympique Marseille +1.5 -166 

  • When: Wednesday, September 7 at 3:00 pm ET

Marseille is on an impressive winning streak. The Ligue 1 squad has won 4 straight. 

Tottenham has won 3-of-4. The Hotspur has struggled to beat their opponents by more than a goal. But this happens in Hotspur Stadium. Tottenham can beat Marseille by at least 2 goals. 

Champions League Pick: Tottenham -1.5 

Club Brugge +204 vs Bayer Leverkusen +117

  • When: Wednesday, September 7 at 3:00 pm ET

The odds in this game make no sense. Sure, Leverkusen plays in a much better league, the Bundesliga, as opposed to Belgium squad Club Brugge.

But Brugge is on fire after having won 4 straight. Leverkusen has lost 4 -of-5. Kusen’s lone win in their last 5 is a 3-0 victory over Mainz. The home team is the play.   

Champions League Pick: Club Brugge
