UEFA Champions League: Best betting picks to bank on for Wednesday
The UEFA Champions League continues on Wednesday, and we’ve drawn our betting picks from the games to be played thus,
The most anticipated match this Wednesday in UEFA Champions League round three is happening in Germany. RB Leipzig welcomes PSG, and judging by the results so far, these two teams will battle for the second spot in this group.
Both sides were defeated by Manchester United, so another loss would significantly lower the playoffs chances.
Leipzig are not doing so well lately, losing big match to Moenchengladbach during the weekend, while PSG have recovered in Ligue 1 after a bit shaky start.
The departure of Timo Werner had a big impact on RB Leipzig’s efficiency. On the other hand, it seems like they did phenomenal job in scouting and brining Dani Olmo from Dinamo Zagreb. This youngster has been constantly improving for years now and might play big role in this team soon.
Leipzig are currently 3rd on Bundesliga table after losing to M’gladbach with 13 points, two behind the BVB/Bayern duo. The Bulls have great results when it comes to matches at their arena – four wins in a row against Mainz, Schalke, Istanbul Basaksehir and Hertha Berlin with total goal difference of 11-1.
Home loss to Manchester United did come as a shock for PSG who were in a great shape. However, they bounced back and won three games in a row, beating Dijon, Istanbul Basaksehir and Nantes consecutively, while keeping clean sheets in all encounters.
We believe the best way to approach this match is through the goals market, considering how aggressive both teams enjoy playing, that makes us go with the BTTS& over2.5 option priced at 1.70odds by 1xbet.
ZENIT vs LAZIO
The Lions may be the best team in Russia at the moment, but it needs to be understood that the Russian Premier League is comparatively far weaker than that of their Italian counterparts.
On top of that, the Eagles have also raced to the top of the Group F table with an unbeaten record. Going on, they also have been very consistent lately with their results, and especially in the competitive Serie A the last season, they almost took out Juventus out of the title equation.
Meanwhile, the Russians have a 100% losing record in the CL this campaign, and have conceded the most number of goals as well as have scored the least.
In addition, the Italians need a win this Wednesday to ensure they stay at the top of the table, as the other game in the group is between Borussia Dortmund and Club Brugge, which the Germans are expected to win. And do note that Der BVB are just lagging by one point behind Simone Inzaghi’s men.
As such, expect the in-form and under-pressure Lazio to deliver a win this Wednesday at the Gazprom Arena.
The Lions lost 2-0 on the road the last match-day, against Dortmund. In the meantime, Inzaghi’s men were held to a 1-1 draw on the road by Club Brugge.
Zenit are winless in seven of their former eleven matches, and they had lost three of their preceding four games. They had also conceded two or more goals in three of these four fixtures, and are on a two-match losing run at home.
Finally, they are on a 100% losing record in the CL at present, while their opponents for the day are the toppers and are yet to lose a game as well in the competition.
As such, count on Lazio to be the better team on the pitch this Wednesday with them winning at the end of 90 minutes priced at 2.49 odds by Betwinner.
Manchester United are not looking good on Premier League standings, disappointing their huge fan base multiple times this season already. Situation is completely different when it comes to UEFA Champions League appearances.
The Red Devils have defeated PSG and RB Leipzig in the opening two duels, having the opportunity to maybe even secure playoffs this Wednesday in Turkey.
Their opposition Istanbul Basaksehir are pinned to the bottom of the table with zero points, and no other option but to attack United and seek a much-needed victory.
After a very slow start in the domestic Super Lig, champions from Istanbul have recovered a bit in the last couple of weeks. They are currently on an excellent run of three victories in a row against Trabzon, Antalya and Konya with a total goal difference of 9-2. The biggest danger for Manchester’s back line is coming from veteran Demba Ba and Bosnian winger Edin Visca. Truth be told, Basaksehir deserved at least one goal in last week’s clash against PSG.
Manchester United got shocked on Sunday afternoon at Old Trafford after losing to Arsenal FC. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is surely not happy with 15th place on the table with only seven collected points from six games. We wouldn’t be surprised to see a lot of changes in the roster, as he might rest some of best players for EPL clash against Everton. We are expecting to see Edinson Cavani in the starting XI. Both teams to score is the stand out bet here in our opinion which is priced at 1.90 odds by 22bet.
