Tuesday’s program in the Champions League promises a lot of good football. We decided to make a preview for two very important matches, which could determine a lot of things in their respective groups. The first one will take place in Dortmund, where Borussia meets with Inter Milan, while the second is in London, between Chelsea and Ajax.
Preview and predictions
Borussia Dortmund vs Inter Milan
This match is vital for Borussia’s ambitions to advance to the knockout stage. After losing in Milan two weeks ago, they simply need to beat the Nerazzurri, and restore the edge they’ve created in the first two rounds. The Italians played 1-1 at home against Slavia Prague, while Millionaires managed to snap a point from Barca, and with a win here, they would make a massive step towards the Round of 16. The previously mentioned loss is the only one in the previous 12 games for Dortmund. Three of their last four home fixtures saw over 2.5 goals.
On the other side, we have Antonio Conte’s team who has been solid recently. After suffering consecutive defeats from Barca and Juventus, they bounced back with a draw and four wins, the latest in Bologna with Romelu Lukaku’s penalty in the stoppage time. We have to say that Inter’s matches under Conte yielded more goals than in the recent few seasons. For example, only one in the previous eight didn’t conclude with both sides scoring. The attacking game of
Nerazzurri is excellent, and they come in this clash with five straight behind them in which the above-mentioned Belgian and his teammates netted at least twice.
The best betting tip here would be both teams to score, as we truly believe that the respective defenses are much weaker than the offensive lines of the rivals. Our pick is priced at 0.66 at BetXChange.
Chelsea vs Ajax
From this point of view, it seems that Chelsea’s loss against Valencia at Stamford Bridge was just a product of bad luck. They should be considered as the strongest team in this assembly, with all due respect to Ajax, and as the biggest favorite for the first place. Not counting the game against Man Utd in the English Football League Cup, where Blues played with the mixed lineup and the guests in full strength. Lampard’s boys have nine straight wins. Chelsea became one of the most interesting teams to watch, because their games often provide a lot of excitement, and above all, many goals. Only two of them from past seven, haven’t ended with both sides to score and over 2.5 goals. The defensive side can’t keep a clean sheet, but the fantastic attackers are covering up everything.
On the other side, Ajax scored 8 goals in two fixtures of the Dutch Eredivisie last week. Pretty much everything said about Chelsea regarding the efficiency applies to the Lancers. Their only game on the road in the Champions League ended with a massive win over Valencia, 0-3, in which Erik Ten Hag’s side showcased that they still are one of the most lethal teams in Europe, even though they had several departures. They didn’t prove that two weeks ago at the Amsterdam Arena, but it doesn’t mean that Ajax won’t explode in London.
The efficiency will be in the middle of attention with this pick too. In order to give you the best possible advice, and lower the risk, we’ve decided to disregard the size of odds and go for the safest possible bet. It is like in the first case, both teams to score with BetXChange’s offer sitting at 0.52,
