Inter to win or draw at Barcelona @ 27/20
Barcelona have made a slow start to the season and look far too short at 57/100 for a home win against the Serie A leaders. Lionel Messi is not guaranteed to start after missing the weekend win at Getafe and Barca relied on Marc-Andre Ter Stegen’s double save from a penalty to earn a 0-0 draw in their Champions League opener at Borussia Dortmund. Inter have a 100 per cent record in Serie A and although they were held 1-1 by Slavia Prague in their opener, we think they can get at least a point at the Nou Camp as the first of our Champions League predictions.
Borussia Dortmund to win at Slavia Prague @ 19/20
Dortmund’s penalty miss against Barcelona means they will head to the Czech capital looking for a victory, before back-to-back games against Inter. Slavia Prague are yet to concede at home in the league this season but Dortmund’s attack possesses much more quality than anything they will have faced domestically, so we’re backing an away win.
RB Leipzig to beat Lyon @ 31/50
Lyon won their opening two Ligue 1 games by an aggregate score of 9-0 but failed to build on that flying start and have now gone six matches without a win, while a 1-1 home draw with Zenit St Petersburg was a disappointing start to the Champions League group stage. They are easy to oppose as they travel to RB Leipzig, who won 2-1 at Benfica thanks to Timo Werner’s brace and were top of the Bundesliga until losing to Schalke at the weekend.
Valencia to draw with Ajax @ 23/10
Valencia gave a huge boost to their hopes of progressing out of Champions League Group H with victory over Chelsea, although they were grateful for Ross Barkley missing a late penalty. That may have papered over the cracks too, with the players seemingly unhappy about the recent dismissal of popular manager Marcelino. Ajax also won their opening game with a 3-0 victory over Lille and are unbeaten in the Eredivisie, so both teams may be happy with a point here.
Chelsea to win at Lille @ 11/10
Lille are back in the Champions League after a seven-year absence but are already up against it after losing 3-0 at Ajax on Matchday 1. They are fourth in Ligue 1 after winning their opening four home games and, like their visitors, have a team full of youngsters, but we’ve been more impressed with Chelsea’s start under Frank Lampard. The Blues have scored eight goals in trips to Norwich and Wolves and with both teams needing a win, they can edge an open game as the last of our Champions League predictions.
