Champions League Round-Up: 28/11/2018

Atletico Madrid vs Monaco

Our round-up of Wednesday night’s games starts in the Spanish capital as Atletico Madrid play host to Monaco. The home side come into this game with just one defeat in their last 15 games and are second only to Borussia Dortmund in Group A in the Champions League, having taken nine points from their first four matches. As for Monaco, they finally picked up their first victory under Thierry Henry at the weekend, but are already out of this competition and only have a slim chance of qualifying for the Europa League. It’s no surprise to see the hosts as heavy favourites here at 2/11 with Bet365, with Monaco currently priced at 22/1 with BetVictor to cause an upset.

Lokomotiv Moscow vs Galatasaray

The two bottom sides in Group D square off on Wednesday night, as Lokomotiv Moscow take on Galatasaray in Russia. Lokomotiv have become the whipping boys of the group, suffering defeat in each of their first four group games to see themselves already eliminated from the competition. Their opponents are still in with a chance of progressing but will need a win here to give themselves any hope, with Schalke and Porto occupying the top two spots. The hosts are slightly favoured to win here a 29/20 with Bet365, while Galatasaray can be backed at 9/4 with Betfair.

Borussia Dortmund vs Club Brugge

Borussia Dortmund will look to secure their place in the last 16 of the Champions League when they face Belgian side Club Brugge on Wednesday night. The Bundesliga leaders have been dominant in the Champions League so far, winning three of their four games and look very likely to progress in midweek. They take on a Brugge side that have taken four points from Monaco, but have looked outmatched against the top two teams in the group so far. Dortmund are currently priced at 3/10 with SkyBet to get the win here, with Brugge at 10/1 with Unibet.

Napoli vs Red Star Belgrade

Napoli will look to strengthen their grip on Group C in the Champions League and exact some revenge when they take on Red Star Belgrade. Carlo Ancelotti’s team have won just one game so far, drawing the other three, in what has been a tightly-contested group and were held to a 0-0 draw in their previous visit to Red Star. The Serbian team will be on a high after stunning Liverpool to a 2-0 defeat and still have a slim chance of progressing to the last 16. Still, Napoli are overwhelming favourites at 1/6 with SkyBet, while Red Star can be backed at 22/1 with William Hill.

First plays fourth in Group B in the Netherlands when Barcelona make the trip to face PSV Eindhoven away from home. The hosts have found it tough in the Champions League so far, taking just a point from their first four games and look set for an early exit from the competition. As for Barcelona, their place in the knockout stages is safe after taking 10 points from their first four matches, allowing them to take their foot off the pedal slightly. Barcelona are favoured to win here at 1/2 with Bet365, while PSV are priced at 11/2 with Betfair.

As for Schalke, they have also fared well, going unbeaten with two wins and two draws and know a draw would be enough to ensure they go through. Porto look great value at 4/5 with Bet365, while Schalke come in as the outsiders at 4/1 with Paddy Power.
