Luckily for you, there’s a massive slate of football on this Tuesday. Not just in the Champions League, but also in the Championship. I’ll let you decide which is more entertaining. But, one thing you don’t need to distinguish is which is a bigger money-maker for you.
An 11/8 winner on the continent pays the same as it does in Peterborough. And in the spirit of that, I’m going to bring you on a tour of sorts for the Tuesday night kick-offs. So, here’s a little BTTS multiple for you to ponder.
No European tour would be complete without a trip to Loftus Road. Lee Bowyer has seen his charges self-destruct over the last few games, which goes completely against his ideology and a hard midweek game against tough opposition away from home is the perfect opportunity to reset.
Oh, but one thing to mention – QPR have scored in each of their last 26 competitive fixtures. That plan will go out the window nice and early, but luckily Troy Deeney exists in the Championship.
This Milan outfit have no clue how to defend, so they won’t be starting here. As for Atleti, I think they’re going through somewhat of a crisis. That’s rare enough to say immediately following a season where they beat out Barcelona and Real Madrid to a league title, but it’s somewhat true.
They went too conservative in their Champions League opener and got hammered for the performance; counting their lucky stars that Mehdi Taremi didn’t knock in a couple in a 0-0 draw with Porto. Atletico have scored just nine times in La Liga this year. By comparison, their cross-city rivals have notched 21. The San Siro is as good a place as any to kick-start your season though!
Interestingly enough, Lionel Messi has a terrific record against Man City. But, that’s hardly relevant given this is the first time he’ll be doing it with a different club. But, Pep will be overly cautious when it comes to playing this front three, that’s if Messi gets over his current injury worries of course.
And given Mauricio Pochettino is a far bigger game manager than PSG will have been used to, I can easily see this game disappointing if we don’t get an early goal. Given the average time of the first goal is 27 minutes, I wouldn’t be shocked at all to see it go beyond that and become cagey. Superpowers my backside!
Leipzig are the most entertaining club to watch in world football. This year’s Atalanta, if you will! And my favourite part of this is that they totally vary their approach depending on the competition. They know to play the Bundesliga in a more controlled fashion because they’re better than the sides they face, generally.
But in Europe, it tends to be somewhat gung-ho, often to their detriment. Brugge obviously have talent in forward areas; they held the mighty PSG to a draw and their last four league games have featured 24 goals. Twenty-four!
