Two Champions League games are on the menu for this Tuesday. The first takes place at Anfield Road, where Liverpool meets Atletico Madrid. The reigning European champions have a one-goal deficit, and they are not is a nice position at all right now. Meanwhile, Paris Saint-Germain meets Borussia Dortmund, and they also have a minimal deficit, with the difference that the Saints scored in Germany.
Liverpool vs. Atletico Madird
The Reds won this weekend against Bournemouth in the Premier League and finally regained a bit of their morale. Jurgen Klopp’s machinery lost three straight events on the road, and what was even more interesting, they couldn’t net at least once in those 270 minutes. It is obvious that Liverpool’s tempo decreased a lot, and also we need to admit, it happened in the most delicate time, when the success of their campaign is on the line. After being eliminated from the FA Cup, the UCL is now in the focus. Liverpool’s fans and players dreamed of a Treble in one moment, but they might end up with just one trophy in their pocket.
The Spaniards played with Sevilla in the previous round of La Liga, and that contest ended 2-2. It is evident that the Mattress Makers play way below their level of expectations. Many believed that this season might be their best since winning the domestic title, but it turned out to be otherwise. Right now, they don’t have a loss in six straight events, and are looking solid, even though they posted three draws during this stretch. But on the other side, for five consecutive road battles, Atletico couldn’t win on the road.
From our point of view, two or three goals are the best solution for this game. Atletico is going to be ultra-defensive, and we all know what the capabilities of this Spanish titan are when talking about the defense. The odds for our prediction are at 0.95 at BetXChange.
Paris Saint Germain vs. Borussia Dortmund
We all know how Saints play at home. It is why after 2-1 in the first leg, nobody gives the advantage to Dortmund. PSG is ruthless at home, and that one-goal edge will probably disappear pretty soon. Overall, in six of the last seven games in all competitions, Neymar and the guys tore apart opponents’ defenses by scoring four goals at least. PSG has eight wins with one draw and loss each during over the previous 10 games, and we might say say that they look pretty good. They have arguably the best attack in the world, able to score three goals in five minutes, but their defense is pretty unstable, and often allows hits on the other side.
What can we say about the Germans? Right now, they have by far the most dangerous attacker in the world- Erling Haaland. The Norwegian kid is unreal, and wherever he appears, the rival’s goalkeeper has an unpleasant experience. Dortmund is also in good shape with five wins in a row and three clean sheets. Lucien Favre’s crew is still trying to play attractive football, even though that might be deadly for their aspirations. Dortmund is often a victim of its own high-paced tempo, which eventually turns against them.
The prediction in this situation is simple – bet on PSG. They are playing at home, and are superb over the past few weeks. Their efficiency is at a high level, which is why we decided to go with PSG wins with an Asian Handicap -1.5 goals. The odds at BetXChange for this are at 1.40 here.
