Champions league football

In the second day in a row we are going to witness the greatness of Champions league football, with the current title holders Barcelona back in action this very evening. The 5-time European Champions start their 2015-16 campaign with a visit to feisty Roma – who finished last year way behind Serie A champions Juventus, but have started the year on a high note with two wins and a draw from three, recording a victory against Juve in the meantime. Even better words can be said about Barca’s start of the season in La Liga – the Catalan outfit finds themselves on top of the table after three games with all 9 points from their opening three games in hand. And like yesterday we will explore the odds 18bet has on offer for this particular game. It’s far from a surprise that Barcelona are deemed favorites in this match-up and you can back them up @ 1.62. A victory for Roma is considered far less like and available @ 5.22 with the draw @ 3.82.

Another one of this year’s favorites for the title in the Champions League – Bayern Munchen is also back in contention with the Bavarian club paying a visit to Greek champions – Olympiacos Piraeus. Pep Guardiola’s men are clear favorites in this game and a win for them is valued @ 1.40. Backing Olympiacos is a far bigger risk @ 7.27, while the chances of the match ending up as a draw are valued @ 4.57.

The final pick for tonight is the game between Valencia and Zenit St Petersburg. A bit overshadowed by the interest drawn by the favorites in action tonight, the two teams can really serve up a football spectacle. Valencia battled their way through the Play-off Round in order to reach to the Group Stage, while Zenit’s status as champions in the Russian Premier League earned them an automatic qualification. Both teams have found their form judging by recent displays in their respective leagues and are considered favorites for winning Group H. Going head-to-head in their opening game though might settle this matter earlier than expected. 18bet bookies consider this to be a tight affair with Valencia given the edge @ 1.78. Zenit chances of winning are valued @ 4.57 though the draw is considered a bit more likely a result @ 3.57.

Champions League group stage

Tonight is the start of the 2015-16 Champions League group stage, and we are more than excited as half of the teams qualified will be back in action. One of the most popular online bookmakers as of late 18bet has some very tempting odds for all of the games this evening, with some of the markets offered certainly deserving our attention.

One of the most interesting games this evening is the one between PSV Eindhoven and Manchester United. The Red Devils visit the Philips Stadium after a one-year break from international football, while PSV enter the field as the reigning Dutch Champions – their first Eredivisie title since 2007-08. This game most certainly holds great promise for an entertaining spectacle. 18bet have United as slight favorites @ 2.32, while PSV chances of victory are valued @ 3.15. According to the bookie – the draw is the least likely scenario and bets on this outcome can be placed @ 3.33.

The highlight of the evening however must be the game between Manchester City and Juventus. The Premier League runner-ups are still on an incredible run of 11 consecutive victories in all competitions, and will be looking to extend that run with a win over last year’s defeated finalists. Meanwhile things are pretty grim for the Old Lady, as the team has yet to record a win since their triumph in the Italian Super Cup over Napoli in the beginning of August. The task will be tough for both teams with City star striker Sergio Aguero a huge doubt after suffering an injury during the weekend against Crystal Palace, while Juve are most definitely suffering from the loss of two of their best players last season – Carlos Tevez, and Andrea Pirlo. Nevertheless 18bet is backing the English side for the win @ 1.81, a victory for the Italian visitors is not considered very likely @ 4.62, while bets for a Draw are accepted @ 3.60.

Last but not least we would like to turn your attention to the game between Sevilla and Borussia Monchengladbach. The Spanish side qualified for the Champions League group stage thanks to their success in winning the UEFA Europa League tournament, and are drawing huge attention as the fifth Spanish team in the CL Group Stage. On the other hand Borussia Monchengladbach are returning to Champions League football for the first time after a 37-year absence. Things can’t be worse for the Foals though as they recorded four straight defeats in their four opening games in the Bundesliga – a performance far below what we saw from them last year when they claimed third place in the German top tier. Understandably 18bet favors Sevilla for victory @ 1.59 with Gladbach’s chances more than slim @ 5.65., while the odds for a draw between these two sides are found @ 4.15
