#BetYourWay: 12 value bets for Wednesday's football
Make the most of the second batch of this week's Champions League football with a variety of tips, and four tailor-made selections.
This season, several matches will be valid for our #BetYourWay promotion, where customers can request custom-built bets for individual games.
Here are our selections for Wednesday's action.
Liverpool v Spartak Moscow
Liverpool to score over 2.5 goals –
Despite regular squad rotation, Liverpool have scored 33 goals in their last 10 matches, and will not slow down against Spartak, who have kept one clean sheet in seven.
Sadio Mane to score –
Mane is clearly benefitting from Jurgen Klopp’s rotation system, scoring in his last two starts for Liverpool.
Over 1.5 Spartak Moscow cards
Of Liverpool’s seven Champions League matches this season, their opponents have picked up at least two cards in six.
Shakhtar Donetsk v Manchester City
Double chance: Draw or Manchester City –
Manchester City appear likely to play a weakened team in Shakhtar, but this is still a fantastic price for them to avoid defeat.
Gabriel Jesus to score anytime –
Having made such an impact off the bench against West Ham, backing Jesus at an odds-against price is a must.
Eliaquim Mangala to be carded -
Mangala is evidently City’s weak link, and is likely to play in this one with other defenders rested ahead of the Manchester derby.
Tottenham v APOEL Nicosia
Tottenham (-2) –
APOEL have lost by at least three in all three matches with Tottenham and Real Madrid, and that trend should continue at Wembley, where Spurs have been strong in the Champions League.
Fernando Llorente to score –
Harry Kane is likely to get a rest in this one, opening the door for Llorente to play and score.
Serge Aurier to be carded -
Aurier has received four cards already this season, and is available at a nice price to make that five.
Real Madrid v Borussia Dortmund
Real Madrid to win (-1) –
Dortmund have already been knocked out of the competition and are in woeful form, failing to win any of their last 11 matches.
Karim Benzema to score –
Having scored twice in Madrid's last Champions League game, Benzema is a better value pick than the out-of-form Cristiano Ronaldo to score in this one.
Under 2.5 cards
With so little riding on it, this is unlikely to be a tempestuous game.
Besides which, there have been fewer than two cards in Real Madrid’s last three Champions League matches.
