Champions League acca: Best bets for Tuesday night

Matthew Ireland's tips for Tuesday night's European action include wins for Atletico Madrid and Porto.

The Champions League continues on Tuesday, with games in Groups E, F, G and H.

Premier League pair Manchester City and Newcastle are among the teams in action, while European giants AC Milan, Paris Saint-Germain and Barcelona are also in the mix.

We have picked out three selections from the evening’s action.

Champions League tips

Atletico Madrid to beat Celtic & BTTS @ 2/1

Crvena Zvezda v RB Leipzig: Over 3.5 goals @ 13/10

Porto to beat Antwerp to nil @ 11/10

Atletico to edge another outstanding clash against Celtic

Group E rivals Atletico Madrid and Celtic played out a barnstormer at Parkhead last month, with the pair eventually settling for a 2-2 stalemate.

Atletico are second behind Feyenoord in Group E whereas the Bhoys prop up the section, with the point they picked up in the reverse fixture all they have managed so far.

They will, however, be confident of pushing Atletico again, especially as their hosts were beaten 2-1 by Las Palmas on Friday and have conceded in all six of their home games in all competitions this season.

However, the Spaniards have scored two or more goals in all of those games and may have too much for Brendan Rodgers’ side.

Go for goals in Belgrade

RB Leipzig have had a surprisingly uniform European campaign to date, with all three of their Group G matches ending 3-1. 

The Red Bulls opened up with a win away to Young Boys in Switzerland, before losing to reigning European champions Manchester City and then beating Tuesday’s opponents Crvena Zvezda.

The Serbs also lost 3-1 away to Manchester City while their other Champions League outing ended in a 2-2 draw against Young Boys.

Bettors may be tempted by odds of 10/1 about another 3-1 win for match favourites Leipzig, but a punt on over 3.5 goals may be the best approach.

As previously mentioned, there have been four goals in each of the pair’s three group outings to date and goals look assured once more.

Porto primed to grab a third European victory

Our final selection comes from Group H and Porto’s clash with Antwerp. 

Porto were 4-1 victors in Belgium last month and will hope to cruise to another comfortable victory on their own patch.

Antwerp took the lead in the reverse fixture but Sergio Conceicao’s side hit back in some style, with Evanilson grabbing a hat-trick.

That was the third win in a run of four victories for Porto but their winning run came to an end on Friday, when they suffered a surprise 1-0 home defeat to Estoril.

That was the sixth time in Porto’s last seven outings that both teams had failed to find the net, and there is every chance that it could be the hosts who record a victory to nil on Tuesday.

One or both teams have failed to score in Porto’s last five home matches in the Champions League, with the Dragons successful on three occasions.

The Portuguese giants could ensure it is a fruitless trip to the Iberian peninsula for Antwerp.
