14/9 22:15 IST – Young Boys vs Manchester United
A hectic summer transfer window ended with a blast for Manchester United as they sealed the deal and brought in Cristiano Ronaldo. His return to Manchester has made the fans of United start dreaming, where the Premier League and the Champions League are two competitions they so badly want to win.
Cristiano Ronaldo is expected to make his debut this weekend when United take on Newcastle at Old Trafford. Everyone knows what he’s capable of and there’s no doubt that his presence on the pitch will work as a great boost for the team.
Tuesday’s game against Young Boys is one that Manchester United is expected to win. The swiss side has had a weak start of their league campaign and with Manchester United’s new signings and offensive threats nothing but 3 points is acceptable. We go with Manchester United to win first half, 1.95 @Betway.
16/9 00:30 IST – Inter vs Real Madrid
It doesn’t get more Champions League than this. Two of the true European giants clash on Wednesday night as Inter Milan host Real Madrid at Giuseppe Meazza in Milano. Real Madrid has won the tournament 13 times, more than any other team, and is always a team to count on in these circumstances.
Inter, the current Italian champions, has open the season strongly and won’t be an easy task for Real Madrid who’s not the same side as a couple of seasons ago. In favor of home advantage and with plenty of attacking options we believe that Inter, led by the charismatic Antonio Conte, has a good chance of picking up all three points. Inter to win pays out 2.50 at Betway while Real Madrid to win pays out 2.80. We believe the value is on Inter here and goes for the Italian side to win this group stage opener.
16/9 00:30 IST – Liverpool vs AC Milan
It has been a solid start of the season for Liverpool who struggled for a long period of time last season. Three wins and most recent a draw against title contenders Chelsea FC is a good start that makes us believe that Liverpool will be fighting for the trophies in the end of the season. Milan will be missing Zlatan Ibrahimović here, though Oliver Giroud who’s a familiar face for Liverpool from his time in the Premier League has proved to be a good replacement of the powerful swede.
Going up against Liverpool at Anfield on a Champions League night is never an easy task. The stadium, with the fans back in the stands, will be an additional boost for the home team who needs to win and get off with a good start. The group with Liverpool, Milan, Atletico Madrid and FC Porto is one of the toughest this season and even though Liverpool are favorites to go through they can’t afford to drop points at Anfield.
Liverpool has a lot more experience from games like this in recent years than Milan has and when they can play at home in front of their fans it would come as a big surprise if they don’t win. With the fans forcing the players to push forward we can expect an entertaining battle here with hopefully a couple of goals. We go for the 3.5 line here and place our bet on over 3.5 goals during full time, 2.50 @Betway.
