Football Predictions Tuesday
- Both teams to score 2 or more goals
- Man United to win, BTTS and over 3.5 goals
- Man United to win 3-2
Manchester United have been abysmal in the early stages of the season and their poor run of form continued with an embarrassing defeat at home to Crystal Palace on Saturday.
Football betting punters will be very wary of backing the Red Devils against Galatasaray on Tuesday night and you can expect a nervy atmosphere at Old Trafford.
Erik ten Hag’s side have lost four of their first seven Premier League matches and even the most ardent supporter of the Dutchman would admit that he is under pressure.
United were third in the Premier League table last term but the 20-time English champions have shown little quality in the opening few months of the campaign.
The Red Devils lost 4-3 to Bayern Munich in their Champions League opener but that result flattered United and it could’ve been much worse for Ten Hag’s men.
Galatasaray showed resilience to battle back and earn a draw against Copenhagen, notching two late goals to get off the mark in the group.
With tough fixtures against United and Bayern Munich approaching, it was important for the Turkish team to get off to a positive start.
Both teams to score looks like a solid bet here and I wouldn’t put anyone off backing over 1.5 goals for both teams. Without a doubt, United will both create chances and gift chances to their opponents.
Having said that, you’d imagine that the Red Devils have enough quality to claim three points and a home win and over 3.5 goals is well worth considering too.
Expect entertainment under the Old Trafford floodlights. It won’t be an easy watch but Ten Hag will be hoping for three points or else more serious questions may be asked.
- Over 2.5 Goals
- Inter to lead at half-time
- Inter to win 3-1
Inter’s draw with Real Sociedad and Benfica’s loss to Salzburg makes this a relatively high stakes game by matchday two standards.
The hosts are naturally sports betting favourites, and they come into this match on the back of a 4-0 win over Salernitana at the weekend.
Davide Frattesi, Marko Arnautovic, Stefano Sensi and Juan Cuadrado are all out for the hosts, while Antonio Silva is unavailable for Benfica after being shown a red card in the defeat to Salzburg.
It had been a scorching start to the season for Inter prior to their draw on matchday one. That was followed by league defeat to Sassuolo. Dropping points to Benfica would ramp up the pressure in a group they were expected to win.
Benfica beat Porto at the weekend, making it six consecutive Liga Portugal victories this term.
They have fresh memories of facing this Inter team after losing in the quarter-finals last season by an aggregate score of 5-3. Revenge will be on the minds of the visitors on Tuesday night.
Inter boss Simone Inzaghi gave mixed reviews of his team’s performance against Salernitana. “We expected Salernitana to play with a different shape. But we had to do better.
“I have many experienced players who know how to play in these matches. We created a lot but needed to do better out of possession. But then in the second half we fixed the issues.
“I said before played Monza, what we want to do this year is to play as many matches as possible.”
One way to ‘play as many matches as possible’ is to put together another deep Champions League run. Inter need to convert home matches into three-point hauls if they are to do so.
It was an entertaining tie earlier this year, and we’re expecting a similar story on Tuesday. Take over 2.5 goals.
- Both teams to score & over 2.5 goals
- Napoli to win, Both Teams to Score & Over 3.5 goals
- Napoli to win 3-1
Napoli and Real Madrid beat Braga and Union Berlin respectively to open their Champions League campaigns.
These sides are expected to progress from the section, and a win for either side here would be a huge step towards qualification.
It is a sports betting occasion to tantalise neutrals. Napoli are a team of entertainers, who went to the last four in this competition last season. Real Madrid are embracing a new era, led by the supreme talents of Jude Bellingham.
David Alaba, Thibaut Courtois, Eder Militao and Arda Guler are all unavailable for Real. Centre backs Amir Rrahmani and Juan Jesus are both out for the hosts.
Carlo Ancelotti was criticised following Real Madrid’s loss to Atletico last month, but he has stuck by his principles and should name a diamond for this fixture.
Ancelotti returns to a club he was fired by and would love to leave with three points. Real have won their last two matches without conceding a goal, while Napoli have hammered Udinese and Lecce.
The Italian was delighted with his team’s showing against Girona – they will need more of the same against an in-form Napoli.
Ancelotti said, “The team was good. It was a solid and forceful match from us. We knew the damage that they could do, Girona plays good football.
“We have done damage when we could and we controlled things in the defensive phase. Solidity is the most important thing in these matches.
“We focused on defence. They are a team that attacks very well. We closed the lines well and the defence played very well.”
This match is a must-watch. It really could go either way, but there’s no doubt it’ll be entertaining for 90 minutes in Naples. BTTS and over 2.5 is our pick.
Football Predictions Wednesday
- Dortmund to Win
- Both Teams to Score in Both Halves
- Dortmund to win 3-2
Both teams are on the back foot heading into this match. Borussia Dortmund lost away to PSG, and will be facing an uphill battle to qualify if they lose here. Milan failed to beat Newcastle at home, putting severe pressure on them to secure a win on the road.
Early football betting markets tab Dortmund as slight favourites here, though it’s bound to be a competitive match at Signal Iduna Park.
Milan beat Lazio at the weekend to move to three consecutive victories. Dortmund saw off Hoffenheim, giving them a confidence boost ahead of a match which will have a huge impact on this group.
Defeat here would leave the Black and Yellows needing at least three wins from their last four group stage matches.
Dortmund boss Edin Terzic was critical of his team after the loss to PSG.
“You can put it nicely and say we showed them too much respect. Or you can say that we simply lacked courage. We wanted to be much more courageous and put the opponent under pressure much earlier and much more aggressively.
“We had a lot of unnecessary ball losses. When you win the ball but give it away after three seconds, it makes things even more difficult.
“We changed to a 3-4-3 in the second half and things looked a bit better. In the end though, we deserved the defeat. When you make these mistakes in the Champions League, you get punished.”
Milan didn’t show much against Newcastle to indicate they can get a result at Dortmund. At 11/8, there’s superb value backing a home win here.
We expect Dortmund to respond to Terzic’s post-match comments from Paris.
- Kylian Mbappe to score anytime, PSG to win & BTTS
- Over 3.5 goals
- Draw half-time, PSG full-time
After seeing off Borussia Dortmund on matchday one, PSG are in pole position in the group ahead of their trip to Newcastle.
The Magpies, though, are in fine form, having backed up their 8-0 win over Sheffield United with successive victories. This is perhaps the pick of this week’s Champions League betting encounters.
Having appeared to break through with a pair of impressive wins, PSG suffered a setback at the weekend in the shape of a goalless draw with Clermont Foot.
Luis Enrique’s team are still something of a work in progress, but that does not lessen the expectation ahead of their evening at St James’ Park.
Newcastle manager Eddie Howe is relishing this Champions League experience, and has belief in his team ahead of PSG’s arrival.
“I think if we can go into any of these Champions League games that we face in confident mood and good form and rhythm, then it gives us the best chance of being successful.
“We want to carry that as long as we can. I think we’re in a good moment. Defensively, we’re very good, and we look like we can score, we should have scored more (against Burnley). I think the mood is very strong.”
Howe spoke highly of Burnley after Newcastle’s weekend win, and praised his team’s overall performance.
“There’s no such thing as a regulation win. It was a tough game. We anticipated a tough game, I think Burnley are a really interesting team. I think Vincent (Kompany) has done a great job…
“You have to deliver your game plan well, and I thought we did, probably after the first ten minutes when we were a little bit slow out of the blocks. I thought we recovered really well, and I thought we deserved to win.”
As well-coached as Burnley are, they are a slightly different challenge to Kylian Mbappe. Newcastle have defended well, but punters are bound to be tempted by the Frenchman to score anytime at 23/20.
We’re envisaging another belting Champions League match here in front of a bouncing Geordie crowd. Goals are inevitable – over 3.5 is our best bet.
