2022-23 UCL Group Stage Matchday 2 Betting Analysis and Picks for Sept. 14th Games

AC Milan -1.5 -106  vs Dinamo Zagreb +1.5 -120

  • When: Wednesday, Sep. 14 at 12:45 pm ET

In their first Champions League match last week, Croatian squad Dinamo Zagreb played a great match. Zagreb battled Chelsea and won the game 1-0.

AC Milan didn’t win their first Champions League match, but the Serie A squad managed a 1-1 draw versus tough FC Salzburg. On their pitch in Milan, AC should have no trouble winning this by at least 2 goals.

Champions League Pick: AC Milan

Chelsea -1.5 -111 vs FC Salzburg +1.5 -112

  • When: Wednesday, Sep. 14 at 3:00 pm ET

This happens at Stamford Bridge, which is the reason Chelsea is such a big favorite. But the Blues aren’t playing well.

Chelsea has lost 3-of-5. In addition to dropping the match against Dinamo Zagreb last week, the Blues have fallen to Southampton and Leeds. 

Salzburg is on fire. Other than the draw versus AC Milan, the road team in this has won 4-of-5. Salzburg is playing well enough that the draw is an attractive play. 

Champions League Pick: Draw  

Juventus +123 vs Benfica +224 

  • When: Wednesday, Sep. 14 at 3:00 pm ET

Like Chelsea, Juve is a favorite on Wednesday that isn’t in great form. Juventus shows 2 draws and a loss in their last 3.

Benfica has won 5 straight. But although Juve isn’t playing great soccer, the loss makes sense. Juventus traveled to Paris to play PSG in their first Champions League match. Losing by a single goal to one of the favorites to take home the CL trophy means Juve played well. Benfica falls. 

Champions League Pick: Juventus  

Manchester City -2.5 +125 vs Borussia Dortmund +2.5 -160

  • When: Wednesday, Sep. 14 at 3:00 pm ET

The Sky Blues enter this match with the much better strikers. Erling Haaland, who used to play for Dortmund, has scored 10 goals in 6 Manchester City matches. 

He’s unstoppable. Ah, but on Wednesday, Erling faces former teammate Mats Hummels and Dortmund’s strong defense. The road dog in this failed big time versus rival RB Leipzig in their last. So Dortmund will be eager to play a good match. 

The Citizens should win, no doubt, but Man City is unplayable on the handicap or money line. Dortmund should keep this to within a goal loss. 

Champions League Pick: Borussia Dortmund +2.5 

Glasgow Rangers +295 vs Napoli -114

  • When: Wednesday, Sep. 14 at 3:00 pm ET

The Rangers take on Napoli at home. If this match was at Napoli, the Serie A squad would be unplayable on the handicap.

Glasgow has lost their last couple of matches, versus rival Celtic and top Dutch Eredivisie squad Ajax, by a combined 8 goals to 0. Napoli rolls. If you see the handicap is at -1.5 or less and provides a better payout, consider. 

Champions League Pick: Napoli  

Real Madrid -1.5 +134  vs RB Leipzig +1.5 -172  

  • When: Wednesday, Sep. 14 at 3:00 pm ET

Leipzig should head into this with a ton of momentum. RBL blasted rival Dortmund 3-0 in their last Bundesliga match. 

But Leipzig never plays well in the match right after a big time victory. After dusting Teutonia Ottensen 8-0 in a DFB Pokal match, Leipzig fell 4-0 versus Frankfurt. Real covers.  

Champions League Pick: Real Madrid -1.5
