Champions League Tuesday Accumulator: Another memorable night for Spurs?
The final round of the Champions League group stages are upon us. With some groups yet to be decided it promises to be an exciting round of action and we’ve selected four tips to try to help you make some extra money during the week.
Red Star Belgrade vs. PSG
The participation of Red Star has certainly proven entertaining. Whether it’s allegations of a betting scandal or their heroic performance against Liverpool, the Champions League has been better with them in it.
They complete their group stage campaign with the visit of PSG. The Parisians are understandably heavy favourites and it would take defeat against Red Star plus a Liverpool win for Neymar et al to miss out on qualification.
Although blessed with mountains of talent, PSG are yet to win a game in December after struggling to draws against Bordeaux and Strasbourg. In both instances they were away from home and that may give Red Star’s players a dose of self-belief.
Predicting this game is tough. A comfortable PSG win is expected but, actually, a game full of goals seems more likely. That said, I chose over 2.5 goals total as it gives us some protection.
Schalke vs. Lokomotiv Moscow
From a Schalke perspective, this game is a dead rubber. The German side are already assured of a place in the knockout stage as third place Galatasaray are unable to catch them.
The same can’t be said for Lokomotiv. The Moscow outfit are currently bottom of the group, but a win in Germany and a loss or draw for Galatasaray will see the Russians nab third place. With it comes a place in the Europa League.
It all sounds very easy for Lokomotiv, but Schalke’s home form will be a cause for concern. Despite losing a derby meeting with Borussia Dortmund at the weekend, Schalke were unbeaten at home during November.
Their success at home is cast alongside Lokomotiv’s recent struggles on the road. Yuri Semin’s side haven’t won away from home since late October, and their last Champions League game on the road resulted in a 4–1 hammering by Porto.
Personally, I think this might be quite an entertaining affair. The result is too hard to predict, but I think a bet on both teams to score seems a wise move.
Barcelona vs. Tottenham
Tottenham may not have their shiny new stadium ready just yet, but their supporters are still able to enjoy a mouthwatering (if not nerve-shredding) clash with Barcelona.
Lionel Messi and co can enjoy themselves as qualification is already assured. Tottenham, however, need to make sure Inter don’t sneak past them. The Italians have a meeting with PSV and if they can better Spurs’ result in Spain, Inter will advance to the knockout rounds.
Mauricio Pochettino clearly had this game in mind when naming his starting XI against Leicester. He chose to leave Harry Kane out, but that didn’t slow Spurs down as they recorded a comfortable 2–0 victory.
How they would take that on Tuesday night. As a neutral, it would be great to see the same level of entertainment that was present in the reverse fixture. That night was dominated by Lionel Messi, who was on form at the weekend when he netted a brace during a 4–0 win against Espanyol.
In terms of this accumulator I’m once again going for over 2.5 goals total and hopefully a happy night for Spurs fans.
Monaco vs. Dortmund
Tuesday brings to an end what has been a torrid Champions League campaign for Monaco. They were semi finalists in this competition as recently as 2017, but things have gone awry for the club this season.
Monaco have just one point from five games and the decision to hire Thierry Henry has done little to fix their troubles. Against Dortmund, all they have to play for is pride, while the Germans have a slim chance of nabbing top spot from Atlético Madrid.
Lucien Favre’s side had a big win against Schalke at the weekend so will be full of confidence heading into this game. Their own fine form is replicated by that of Jadon Sancho.
The England international is thriving in Germany and teammate Marco Reus commended his mentality after another startling display against Schalke.
I think they’ll continue that fine form here and I’m tipping them for an away win to round off the acca.
