It’s the return of the Champions League tonight, and we are looking at having a small bet the over 3.5 goals market for a bit of interest.
Here are our over 3.5 goals predictions for the Champions League fixtures on Tuesday, 27th November. All three of the matches are 8pm kick offs.
– Lyon V Man City
– Hoffenheim v Shakhtar
– Bayern Munich v Benfica
This treble pays just under 10/1 on Betfair. If you apply Betfair’s acca edge, you will get 6.25/1. Using acca edge, you will get your money back as a free bet (in cash) if one leg of your accumulator lets you down.
Alternatively, you may want to put them in a Trixie bet (4 bets). That way, if two out of the three win, you will make a small profit.
We all know Man City are scoring for fun, and they may well be looking for a bit of revenge over Lyon after losing 2-1 at the home to the French side earlier in the campaign. Pep’s men are fresh from a 4-0 win over West Ham on Saturday.
I expect them to put out a strong team tonight, as avoiding defeat will ensure qualification as Champions, meaning they can rest players for the final group match.
Shakhtar are the whipping boys of Group F, having conceded 13 goals in their 4 matches so far. Hoffenheim matches can also involve a lot of goals. On Saturday they drew 3-3 away at Hertha, suggesting that goal scoring isn’t a problem.
It also looks like defensively the German side could be a bit open. Which is also a problem that fellow Germans, Bayern Munich seem to be suffering with lately.
Although Bayern Munich have been struggling this season, they’re recent Bundesliga results have been littered with goals. Their last two matches in Germany have been 3-3, and 3-2 defeat.
