Champions League Betting. Matchday 4.
Matchday 4 sees a repeat round of fixtures from Matchday 3 and provides the first opportunity for some sides to secure qualification into the knockout phase of the competition.
Tottenham welcome Champions League holders Inter to White Hart Lane after a 4-3 thriller at the San Siro in a game that saw Gareth Bale launched onto the world stage with a fine hatrick. Goals and a thrilling encounter are once again expected and there are some value bets to be had in this reverse fixture.
Goal machine Samuel Eto’o is again likely to find himself amongst the goals and is a solid bet at 2.6, but more value is found to be had from the Welsh winger Gareth Bale who unlocked Inter’s backline with ease.
Gareth Bale to score anytime @4.8
Elsewhere Lyon travel to Estadio da Luiz, bringing with them a perfect record in the Champions League so far. Benfica are a good side despite the losses of Di Maria and Ramires over the Summer and have notched up five wins domestically. Lyon on the other hand are struggling domestically and will be without the services of star striker Lisandro Lopez who has a decent record in the competition.
Benfica to win @2.0
In the early game Rubin Kazan play Greek side Panathinaikos with both in desperate need of the win. Low goals are predicted for this encounter with under 2.5 goals not a bad bet at 1.66. But with the return of Brazillian Carlos Eduardo the Russian side should just sneak this one through.
Rubin Kazan to win @ 1.61
