Tasty Champions League tips for Wednesday
Wednesday’s evening wrangles signal an end to the Champions League group stage but it’s all still to play for in some pools, so expect it to go out with a bang. So, here at Coral we’ve handpicked the most appealing Porto v Leicester odds and best Real Madrid v Borussia Dortmund bets.
There’s much more than just those highlighted fixtures in our Champions League tips for Wednesday, though, plus an incredible acca for punters to enjoy too…
Porto v Leicester odds to end evenly
Leicester City’s amazing Champions League adventure will continue, as the Foxes are guaranteed to go in the pot for the last 16 draw as Group G winners.
Porto, meanwhile, are still fighting for safe passage with FC Copenhagen close behind. But, much like their English opponents, the Dragons’ form in other competitions has been poor leading up to this clash with five draws from their past six in all competitions.
Unbeaten at the Estadio do Dragao they may be, but the Portuguese big guns are having trouble killing games off with just one goal last time out breaking a barren stretch of four successive stalemates.
As Leicester are also in patchy form with one win in their previous seven, backing a splitting of spoils at 4/1 makes sense.
Real to defeat Dortmund and both score
After their previous meeting provided two goals apiece, get set for a scorcher between giants Madrid and Dortmund, with group supremacy still at stake.
Real simply have to win to finish first, and Zinedine Zidane’s Los Blancos boys host on the back of a crucial El Clasico draw plus 14 goals from their past four fixtures.
While, Thomas Tuchel’s men have also been in high scoring form with the same amount of strikes from their last four match-ups, including an 8-4 drubbing of Legia Warsaw.
Real look to have the sturdier defence, however, and a trip to the Bernabeu still seems daunting for Dortmund. So a Madrid win at 2/1 with both teams scoring is worth pouncing on.
Mandzukic first scorer for home team
Juventus are sitting pretty atop Group H and will reach the last 16, but aren’t yet assured of winning their pool.
So, expect Massimiliano Allegri’s men to come out all guns blazing and field a top team in Turin.
Juve fired four past pointless Dinamo Zagreb in the reverse and at the moment their main marksman is Mario Mandzukic. The goal-hunting Croatian has hit the target in four of his past five across all competitions, so is value at 11/10 to notch anytime and the Old Lady to win.
Sevilla to beat Lyon by one goal
Sevilla are in good shape in second spot in Pool H and, should Juve stumble, they could still clinch pole position. Though, the Bathtubs are not home and dry and last group opponents Lyon could leapfrog them with victory by a decent scoreline.
Yet the Spaniards still seem best to back as they’ve been impressive this season under Jorge Sampaoli and should be confident of making the final 16. Their last win over Lyon was tight, with just a 1-0 result, while they also only beat Dinamo Zagreb by a single strike too. So, the price for Sevilla to win by a one goal margin is a great 18/5 shout.
