To Score and Win Selections – Champions League

To Score and Win Selections – Champions League

The Champions League returns tonight and with it, the second game of the group stages.

Looking ahead to tonight’s fixtures, there are plenty of interesting matchups, with there being plenty of betting markets to choose from too.

In terms of predicting a match winner, there are certain clubs that are being heavily favoured. Need help adding some value to a team’s outright price? We’ve picked out three selections from the ‘to score and win’ market with SkyBet.

Duvan Zapata and Atalanta – 15/8

  • Betting stat = In 3 home games this season, Zapata has 3 goals.

Starting off tonight’s SkyBet treble is the early kick-off between Atalanta and Shakhtar Donetsk. Both clubs started off life in Group C pretty terrible, with Atalanta losing 4-0 and Shakhtar 3-0.

It makes tonight’s clash at the Atleti Azzurri d’Italia extra crucial, with the home side entering as 17/20 favourites. The Italian club’s opening CL result certainly came as a shock to most, as Gian Piero Gasperini’s men have been one of the teams to watch over the last year or so.

They will most likely be putting the loss down to new territory nerves, as it was the club’s debut in the competition. Atalanta have bounced back from the defeat though, claiming away wins at the difficult grounds of Roma and Sassuolo since then.

Duvan Zapata got on the scoresheet in both games, as he carried on his emphatic form since arriving at the club last season. The Colombian forward now has 33 goals in his last 54 games, making tonight’s score and win price of 15/8 one with significant value.

Gabriel Jesus and Man City – 4/7

  • Betting stat = Jesus has 9 goals in 16 CL games

Moving onto a shorter price now with Jesus to score and Man City to win at 4/7. It’s always a difficult job trying to find value in the Citizens, as Pep Guardiola’s side often find themselves as overwhelming favourites against anyone they face.

Tonight is no different, with SkyBet having City down as 1/12 to win the game. Their opponents beat Atalanta 4-o on the opening day though, so Guardiola will be demanding a strong performance from his team. Since that shock defeat at Norwich, his team have been doing exactly that, winning 4 games on the bounce.

Jesus has featured in the last two victories, grabbing two goals along the way. The Brazilian is pragmatically used by Pep, with the 22-year-old primarily being used in the cup tournaments. In this specific completion, he holds an impressive stat of 9 goals in 16 games.

He scored against Shakhtar in City’s opening group game and he is heavily favoured to grab another tonight. On a night where the Sky Blues will likely dominate possession and carve open chances, we think SkyBet‘s 4/7 price will be a popular selection with punters tonight.

Joao Felix and Atletico – 3/1

  • Betting stat = Felix has scored in Atletico’s last two winning games

Both the above selections come together as a 3.52/1 double, so our last choice is quite an outside shout to try and beef up this treble.

Felix to score and Atletico to win is quite a big price at 3/1, but there is some justification behind such a pick. The Portuguese sensation has settled in quickly to his new side and has become an integral part of Diego Simeone’s system.

The Spanish side have started the season strongly too, sitting 3rd in La Liga with Felix having 2 goals to his name. Sitting just behind Diego Costa, the attacking midfielder is given a licence to drive forward and get into the box. He also enjoys testing his luck from long range, making his chances of scoring all the more likely.
