Opt for home comforts in Champions League accumulator

The latest round of Champions League fixtures potentially provides a five-fold that offers sizzling profits

2/5 – AS Monaco to beat Young Boys

AS Monaco were one of the success stories of last year’s competition, romping through their group and downing Zenit and Arsenal before narrowly losing to eventual finalists Juventus. Buoyed by that run, Monaco have strengthened ahead of the new campaign by signing the likes of Stephan El Shaarawy from Milan and Mario Pasalic from Chelsea. Young Boys have very little recent Champions League experience are unlikely to overturn a 3-1 deficit.

7/4 – Molde to beat Dinamo Zagreb

Most experts were expecting a comfortable Zagreb win when Molde travelled to the Stadium Maksimir last week, but it was the away side’s battling qualities that helped gain them a creditable 1-1 draw. That spirit epitomised what Molde are all about, and the Norwegian outfit will be heavily backed by a passionate home crowd to get through this one. It is at home where Molde have enjoyed much success, accumulating more than 60 per cent of all points at the Aker Stadion last season. They will be encouraged by Zagreb’s recent shaky results in Europe and are capable of creating an upset here.

17/20 – Ajax to beat Rapid Vienna

The four-time champions of Europe will be confident of progressing against the Austrian side after securing a 2-2 draw in the first leg in Vienna. Despite finishing as runners-up to PSV Eindhoven domestically, the home side were in good form following just one defeat in their final 13 fixtures. In recent years they have been consistent, yet unspectacular in the Champions League, regularly reaching the group stages before succumbing to the modern-day superpower clubs such as Real Madrid. That is more than can be said for Rapid Vienna, however, who are a team more accustomed to Europa League football.

11/10 – APOEL Nicosia to beat FC Midtjylland

FC Midtjylland are not exactly known for their European football prowess – a situation that looks unlikely to change on Tuesday night. APOEL, however, have enjoyed considerable success in Europe’s elite club competition in recent years, reaching the group stages more than once and making a shock run to the quarter-finals in 2012. A 2-1 win away from home has put them in control of this tie and they will expect to finish the job.

4/5 – Shakhtar Donetsk to beat Fenerbahce

Shakhtar Donetsk have enjoyed an excellent start to their season, winning all three league fixtures and taming a raucous Turkish crowd to claim a commendable 0-0 with Fenerbahce in the first qualifying leg. With Fenerbahce’s domestic season not kicking off for more than a week, it is possible that the home side’s superior match sharpness could prove decisive. Robin van Persie, who made his debut for the club from the substitutes’ bench last week, could start for the first time.
