UEFA Champions League Qualifying Betting Opportunities for Playoff Round

Qarabag FK +275 vs FC Viktoria Plzen +103

  • When: Tuesday, August 23 at 3:00 pm ET

Viktoria Plzen, the home favorite, is a solid play. In the first match between these two, Plzen escaped Qarabag with a draw.

Qarabag controlled the match with 66% of possession. But Viktoria knew they’d get a crack at Qarabag in the second match at home. Expect Viktoria to take advantage of Qarabag and win this match.  

Soccer Pick: FC Viktoria Plzen  

FC Dynamo Kiev +1.5 -140 vs Benfica Lisbon -1.5 +106

  • When: Tuesday, August 23 at 3:00 pm ET

Before the first match between these two, Dynamo Kiev had played well. The road squad in this had beaten Fenerbahce and Sturm Graz twice on their way to a matchup against Benfica.

But the Portueguese Liga squad rocked Dynamo with a 2 goals to 0 victory. There’s no reason to believe that Benfica, who has won 3 Champions League qualifiers and a couple of league matches in their last 5, can’t win another by at least 2 goals. 

Soccer Pick: Benfica -1.5 

Maccabi Haifa FC +340 vs FK Crvena Zvezda Belgrade -131

  • When: Tuesday, August 23 at 3:00 pm ET

Belgrade versus Haifa should be a terrific match. The first leg produced five goals. Maccabi star Frantzdy Pierrot scored 2 and Tjarron Cherry had 1. 

Zvezda players Alexander Pesic and Guelor Kanda each scored a goal in a losing effort. The goal differential is only 1, which means Maccabi can’t stay back and play a defensive match. 

Haifa must attack. These two both controlled time of possession. Belgrade should win, but the odds difference makes Maccabi the play.    

Soccer Pick: Maccabi Haifa  

FC Copenhagen +255 vs Trabzonspor -102

  • When: Wednesday, August 24 at 3:00 pm ET

Trabzonspor is on a 2-match losing streak. Copenhagen has won 2 straight. But although the road team in this beat the home squad 2-1 in the first leg, we shouldn’t expect a repeat effort.

Trabzonspor is one of the better teams in the underrated Turkish Super Lig. The home chalk will have plenty of chances to turn the tables on their rival. Expect Trabzonspor to win in regulation.  

Soccer Pick: Trabzonspor  

Bodoe/Glimt +285 vs GNK Dinamo Zagreb -117

  • When: Wednesday, August 24 at 3:00 pm ET

In their last 5 Champions League qualifying matches, Croatian squad Dinamo Zagreb has 3 wins, a draw, and a loss.

The loss happened versus Bodoe/Glimt in the last. Bodoe beat Dinamo 1-0. But the venue changes for the second leg. Zagreb is the better team. They should have no trouble turning the tables. A 2 goals or more victory in regulation is a real possibility. 

Soccer Pick: Dinamo Zagreb 

Glasgow Rangers +302 vs PSV Eindhoven -135

  • When: Wednesday, August 24 at 3:00 pm ET

Rangers versus Eindhoven should be an excellent match. Glasgow played great in this past season’s Europa League Championship, losing a close one to Bundesliga squad Eintracht Frankfurt. 

Eindhoven is a solid club. The chalk has the edge because this happens on their pitch. But these two drew 2-2 in the last. So although Eindhoven is a decent play, the draw is better. The winner of this aggregate could come down to penalty kicks.  

Soccer Pick: Draw
