UEFA Champions League Tuesday ACCA Tips: City will not fall victim to Lyon again
Can you hear that? It’s the sound of the Champions League anthem echoing around your brain. Europe’s premier competition is back in play this Tuesday and we have a series of suggestions to help influencing your betting slip.
Juventus vs. Valencia
Tuesday, 27 November, 20:00
The Old Lady is desperate to win a Champions League. The Italian giants have lost seven finals, more than any other team, and most recently tasted heartbreak in Cardiff in 2017.
Unbeaten in Serie A this season, the same can’t be said for the Champions League. That record was taken by Jose Mourinho and Manchester United. The Italians had the better of the action, but lost out to a late own goal that saw Mou take to the pitch after full-time to celebrate.
The arrival of Valencia gives Juventus a chance to book their place in the next round. Marcelino’s side are still in with a shot at qualification, but they’ll realistically need a result in Turin followed by a favour from Young Boys when they take on Manchester United.
When the two sides last met there was an air of controversy as Cristiano Ronaldo was dismissed. The return fixture promises to be an exciting affair, and I personally expect Juventus to be on the end of a success.
Juve haven’t been high scorers at home this season (they’ve maxxed out at 3 goals in a single game) so I think a cautious bet is in order.
Lyon vs. Manchester City
Tuesday, 27 November, 20:00
The meeting of these two at the Etihad Stadium was one of the early shocks of the Champions League this season. Lyon were not expected to win against Pep Guardiola’s men, but a man of the match performance from Nabil Fekir helped give them a memorable win at the Etihad.
Unfortunately, Lyon’s form has been patchy since. Arguably their toughest result was a 5–0 demolition by league leaders PSG. By contrast, Man City have gone from strength-to-strength both domestically and in Europe.
Last time out in the Champions League, City put six past Shakhtar and arrive in France full of confidence. For all the money and investment Guardiola has made, it’s impossible to ignore the quality of his football and that was on show once again in the 4–0 win over West Ham at the weekend.
Personally, I expect goals here. Both these sides have found the net regularly in this competition and that won’t change on Tuesday. I considered a bet on both teams to score, but City’s defensive record since late October is impressive.
CSKA Moscow vs. Viktoria Plzen
Tuesday, 27 November, 17:55
CSKA have had something of a roller coaster campaign in the Champions League this season. At its peak, they recorded a memorable home win against reigning champions Real Madrid.
Unfortunately, that has been followed by a heavy 3–0 defeat in Rome and a 2–1 home loss to the Italians. The qualification race in this group is all but done and dusted with the favourites — Real and Roma — on nine points.
Things are a little bit more interesting in the quest for a Europa League place. At present CSKA are in control on four points while Viktoria Plzen have just one point, which they gained against their Russian rivals.
A win for CSKA secures them a place in the Europa League with the faint chance of qualification if results go their way. For that reason I’m plumping for the home team.
Hoffenheim vs. Shakhtar
Tuesday, 27 November, 20:00
There was a passionate debate at the weekend about what constitutes a ‘hipster football match’. I think it’s fair to say Hoffenheim and Shakhtar fits into that category, but personally I don’t care.
I’ve been fascinated by the rise to prominence of Reiss Nelson, as he continues to take German football by storm and I’m going to take the chance to watch him.
An England youth international, Nelson has six goals in eight league games this season, averaging out at one every 55 minutes. It’s hard to see a route to qualification for Shakhtar, but a victory for Hoffenheim (and a win for Man City) would put them level on points with Lyon.
The pair met during the last round of games and played out an enthralling 2–2 draw, during which Hoffenheim rallied from 2–0 to salvage a point against their French opposition. I think we’ll see some more entertainment in Germany come Tuesday night.
