Atletico Madrid and Chelsea make the trip to Bucharest for their Champions League clash and that could open up a bit of value for punters.
Thomas Tuchel’s winning start as Chelsea gaffer came to an end with a 1-1 draw at Southampton and his squad will face it’s biggest test of his short tenure when they come up against the La Liga leaders.
Atleti have stumbled in their last few games but look over-priced, despite, or more likely maybe because of, the neutral venue. The Blues sailed through Group E and it should be noted that they handed Sevilla a 4-0 beating in their own back yard – although both sides had already secured qualification by that point and Lopetegui decide to make some big changes to his line-up.
It’s a slight surprise to see Chelsea as short as 4/6 to qualify from the tie so I’m keen to go against them on at 17/10 in the first leg.
In the other Champions League match it’s Lazio’s turn to try to stop Bayern Munich in Europe. The World Club Champions have failed to win their two domestic matches upon their return from Qatar but the Germans can be a different animal in Europe.
Lazio go in to the game with confidence from a run of eight wins from 10 matches this year. They’re as big as 7/2 to win and if they’re to stand any chance of qualifying at 4/1 they really need to win in Rome.
Goals should be all but guranteed but Over 2.5 Goals is understandably priced up at just 1/2. An early goal, inside the opening 24 minuts might be a good option at 5/6.
12 different players have scored for Bayern in the Champions League already so good luck trying to find a first goalscorer. The go-to bet is usually Robert Lewndowski who is 9/4 to open the scoring. Kingsley Coman, who scored three in the group stages could be an each-way shout at 13/2.
