After 3:0 disaster in Paris, Real Madrid almost lost the second game against Brugge. They managed to come back after 0:2, but generally, they look really bad lately, especially in the away games. If we combine their away games with the latest from the last season, we come to a number of only 2 wins in the last 11 games. It's always difficult to play in Istanbul, and with potential good result here Galatasaray would have a real chance to qualify. They can avoid a defeat, and even if they lose with 1 goal difference, the stake will be returned.
ProTipster Expert's Tip: Galatasaray +1 @ 1.88
Bayern destroyed Tottenham in London with incredible score 7:2, but after that, they dropped 5 points in Bundesliga. Firstly they lost at home against Hoffenheim, and a few days ago got only one point in Augsburg. The common thing for those games is a high number of goals, just as usual in Bayern's games. It wouldn't be fair to compare Olympiakos with them, because Greek league is super defensive, but you can take their Champions League games as relevant – 2:2 with Tottenham and 1:3 defeat against Crvena Zvezda, so you have enough reasons to believe in at least 3 goals.
ProTipster Expert's Tip: Over 3 Goals @ 1.83
Atalanta have some incredible numbers regarding goals. In this season they have played 10 games so far, and 7 of them were over 3.5. The remaining 3 games ended on 3 goals 2 times, while the lowest-scoring game was in Rome when they won 2:0 against Roma. There is no need to stress Man City attacking power – they can destroy anyone, and Atalanta comes like an ideal opponent. In this season they are on 4.2 goals per game in Premier League and they could easily break 3.5 margin again.
ProTipster Expert's Tip: over 3.5 Goals @ 1.83
Bayer Leverkusen lost the first game against Lokomotiv at home and that was practically it for them. With such opener, they knew they have no chance, and in the next game, they were demolished 3:0 in Turin. The odds are dropping in their favour, but the main reason for that is the injury of Joao Felix. Atletico can do well even without him, something like 1:0 win is like a piece of cake for them, and the difference could easily be higher. With this handicap, the stake will be returned in case of exactly 1 goal difference win.
ProTipster Expert's Tip: Atletico -1 AH @ 2.17
Stats from the Austrian league definitely aren't comparable with some top leagues, but Salzburg have scored unbelievable 47 goals in only 11 games. In the Champions League, they scored 6 against Genk and 3 against Liverpool the best defence in the world at the moment. On the other side, Napoli don't look convincing, in the last 5 games they were held to 0 goals in 3 occasions and the home team could easily win this. We advise you to go with the safer option, Salzburg +0, so in the case of draw you'll get your stake back.
ProTipster Expert's Tip: Salzburg DNB @ 2.05
Czech team created one of the biggest upsets in the first round, but that was more Inter's poor performance than their great display. Dortmund in the second game didn't have troubles against them, and Barcelona, who are aiming at Champions League trophy more than anything, won't allow any surprises here. Lionel Messi is back, Barcelona are destroying again and this game should be a one-way street.
ProTipster Expert's Tip: Barcelona -1.5 AH @ 2.21
Leipzig have shown their vulnerability in the home game against Schalke when they lost 3:1, and only a few days later they suffered a new defeat in front of their own fans – poor Lyon was better with 2:0. In the last two games, they played 1:1 against Leverkusen and Wolfsburg and those two games proved that Leipzig is not some „top material“. On the other side, Zenit is destroying lately, after winning against Benfica they scored 9 goals in two Russian league games, and with such momentum, they could easily create troubles to the German side.
ProTipster Expert's Tip: Zenit +1AH @ 1.95
Ajax is one of the biggest things in this season again. In the last one they managed to reach the semifinals, but they lacked just a little bit of luck to have an opportunity for the final impact. In the latest transfer window they sold some key players, everyone expected their performances are going to drop, but Ajax responded in a surprising way. They look even better, with two wins in their group, while holding first place in Eredivisie, without a single defeat so far. Chelsea recorded 5 wins in a row, but they are still in the process of building, so Ajax is a favourite with reason here.
ProTipster Expert's Tip: Ajax DNB @ 1.74
