Champions League Matchday 3 Betting Tips

Paris Saint Germain vs RB Leipzig 

Wednesday 20th October, 6.00am (AEDT) 

Group A is completely up in the air in the Champions League at the moment, with Paris Saint Germain and Club Brugge sitting atop the table with four points through two games while Manchester City and RB Leipzig are btoh within striking distance. PSG can go a long way to securing their path to the knockout stage with a win at home on Wednesday morning against the German opponent, who probably need a win to stay alive. 

The two sides have met four times in competition games over the course of their history, with each team winning twice. Interestingly, three of those matchups came in 2020 as they faced off in the semi-final of the 19-20 Champions League before being placed in the same group for another two games in the 20-21 Champions League.

PSG claimed the all important win in the semi-final game by a scoreline of 3-0, before the two teams split the group stage matches later in the year, both winning at home. Paris Saint Germain start as strong $1.40 favourties for this game, and it's tough to look past them given Leipzig's poor start to the season. They are just 3-2-3 in the Bundesliga and are yet to record a point in the UCL. Back Paris to earn a comfortable win at home here. 

Atletico Madrid vs Liverpool 

Wednesday 20th October, 6.00am (AEDT)

The match of the round sees Atletico Madrid hosting Liverpool in Spain in what should be a fantastic clash. The two teams sit atop Group B seperated by just two points in favour of the English side. Another win here for Liverpool would see them jump out to a five point lead in the group and all but lock up their place in the knockout stage. 

The two teams were matched up in the Round of 16 of the 19-20 Champions League, where each team claimed a 1-0 at home, forcing an extra time period for the ages. Four goals were scored in the period, resulting in a 3-2 win for Madrid which saw them advance to the quarter finals. 

I think these two teams are really evenly matched at the moment, which makes me think that the Spanish side are fantastic value as underdogs at home. In the last five games between these two sides dating back to 2010, the home side is undefeated. 

Chelsea vs Malmo

Thursday 21st October, 6.00am (AEDT)

The Blues have been fantastic in the EPL so far this season, racking up a 6-1-1 record and currently sitting atop the table. They were 1-0 winners over Brentford on the weekend and will have a great chance to pick up three valuable points in Group H of the Champions League with a game against Malmo on Thursday morning. 

Malmo have lost both of their Champions League games so far, failing to score a goal in either and allowing a combined seven goals in losses to Juventus and Zenit. Chelsea currently sit in 2nd place in the group, three points behind Juventus, so they will be desperate for a win here to keep themselves ahead of the Zenit. 

Chelsea's defence has been elite through the first portion of the EPL season, allowing just three goals in eight games so far. I think they keep a clean sheet against Malmo on Thursday morning, which makes me think there is real value in the unders on total goals. Expect a 1-0 or 2-0 win from the Blues. Since the EPL season started, 7 of Chelsea's 11 games in all competitions have gone under 2.5 goals.
