Will Rook provides his football tips from Wednesday's action in the Championship and Champions League.


Bournemouth to beat Cardiff (19:45)

Bournemouth drew 0-0 at home to QPR in a drab affair on Saturday, but did at least extend their unbeaten start to the league season.

The Cherries have dropped just four points in their opening five matches and look a decent price against inconsistent opposition.

Cardiff have lost both of their home games so far against Sheffield Wednesday and Reading, and managed two victories out of six in all competitions.

Under 2.5 goals in Watford v Blackburn (19:45)

There hasn’t been more than one goal scored in any of Watford’s five league games so far this season.

The Hornets have only once had more than three shots on target in that period, but have only conceded once.

Blackburn come into this on the back of a 1-0 defeat to struggling Nottingham Forest, having been held to a goalless draw by Cardiff previously.

BTTS & over 2.5 goals in Ajax v Liverpool (20:00)

This bet would have landed in five of Liverpool’s eight matches in all competitions this season, including their 2-2 draw in last weekend’s Merseyside derby.

Jurgen Klopp’s side have already been involved in two matches that finished 7-2, one 4-3 and a 3-1.

There have been three or more goals in all three of Ajax’s home games, with BTTS landing in two of them.

BTTS: No in Bayern Munich v Atletico Madrid (20:00)

Atletico Madrid come into this having beaten Celta Vigo 2-0 at the weekend, ending a run of two straight goalless draws.

BTTS landed in just two of Atleti’s six Champions League group games last season.

Bayern Munich kept two clean sheets out of three at home in the group stage last term, only conceding in a 3-1 victory over Tottenham.

Atalanta to beat Midtjylland & over 2.5 goals (20:00)

Atalanta were thumped 4-1 by Napoli at the weekend, but don’t let that result deter you here.

The Italian side had won three on the spin prior to that and remain one of the most entertaining sides in Europe, with at least five goals in all four of their matches this term.

Champions League group stage newcomers Midtjylland have already put three past Young Boys and four past Slavia Prague at home in the qualifiers, so this promises to be an entertaining one.
