Top Champions League Matches to Watch and Bet on This Tuesday

Manchester City -1 ½ (-133) vs Club Brugge +1 ½ (+100)

  • When: Tuesday, Oct. 19

We’d write that the Sky Blues were a lock to cover, but they aren’t in great form. Man City beat Burnley 2-0 in their last. 

However, before the victory over Burnley, City struggled to a 2-2 draw versus Liverpool. Then in their first Champions League match, Pari Saint-Germain beat the Sky Blues 2-0.

Club Brugge upset RB Leipzig in their first Champions League match. Brugge isn’t good enough to beat the Sky Blues straight up. But this happens on the underdog’s pitch. So they could win against the handicap. 

Soccer Pick: Club Brugge 

Liverpool +122 vs Atletico Madrid +215

  • When: Tuesday, Oct. 19

On September 28, Atletico beat AC Milan 2-1. Atletico failed to make a dent in last season’s Champions League. The victory over AC shows Atletico is serious about this season’s CL.

Liverpool followed up a 2-2 draw against Man City with a stunning 5-0 victory over Watford. Overmatched Watford is one of the worst teams in the English Premier League, which means the Reds shouldn’t bounce in this.

Still, beating Atletico Madrid on their pitch is tough. The draw looks promising. 

Soccer Pick: Draw

RB Leipzig +1 ½ (-147) vs Paris St. Germain -1 ½ (+111)

  • When: Tuesday, Oct. 19

RB Leipzig isn’t in great form. Club Brugge upset them in their first Champions League match. Then on October 16, Leipzig drew 1-1 versus Freiburg. 

Pari St. Germain has won 4-of-5. But PSG also hasn’t played great. Mbappe, Neymar, and Messi dropped a match against Stade Rennes and could beat Anger by just 1-goal. 

This could be Paris’ get well game. Laying it makes sense. 

Soccer Pick: Paris Saint-Germain  

Borussia Dortmund +195 vs Ajax Amsterdam +113 

  • When: Tuesday, Oct. 19

Dortmund beat a decent Sporting CP squad 1-0 in their first CL match. Since then, Borussia has taken down Augsburg and Mainz in a couple of Bundesliga contests.

Ajax Amsterdam fell to FC Utrecht on October 3. The slight favorite bounced back with a 2-0 win against Heerenven in their last match.

Dortmund can win this straight up. Even though this happens on Ajax’s pitch, Dortmund has the better offense. So if Borussia concentrates on defense, they can take this in regulation.  

Soccer Pick: Dortmund  

Sevilla +110 vs Lille +245

  • When: Wednesday, Oct. 20

Both teams aren’t playing lights out. Let’s not kid ourselves, though, Lille is struggling big time. The reason to bet this match is because Sevilla, a top La Liga squad, offer above even money to beat French Ligue 1’s Lille.

Clermont Foot, a Ligue 2 team last season, upset Lille 1-0 on Lille’s pitch in the home team’s last. Granada upset Sevilla 1-0 on October 3.

But the road chalk beat Celta Vigo 1-0 in their last. Sevilla is the play. 

Soccer Pick: Sevilla  

Atalanta +310 vs Manchester United  -140

  • When: Wednesday, Oct. 20

Yes, this happens on the Red Devils’ pitch. But Man United is a mess. United hasn’t figured out how to properly mix Ronaldo in with Sancho, Marcus Rashford, and the rest.

On October 17, Leicester City blasted Man U 2-0. Atalanta’s last loss happened versus AC Milan. 

The odds make United an underlay. The odds make Atalanta an overlay. Backing overlays is never a bad idea. 

Soccer Pick: Atalanta
