Champions League Group Stage - Matchday 3 Of 6 ContinuesPublished October 23, 2019 by Sol FH
The action begins at 17:55 GMT with another eight matches in the first-leg action.
What a wild night in the Champions League it was last night, as the first 16 teams played their first-leg matches. There were no surprises, as the favorites all won their ties, aside from one draw between Shakhtar Donetsk and Dinamo Zagreb. To recap what occurred last night, Atletico Madrid beat Bayer 1-0, Man. City destroyed Atalanta 5-1, Real Madrid beat Galatasaray 1-0, Bayern Munich beat Olympiacos 3-2, PSG crushed Club Brugge 5-0, Tottenham did the same thing to Crvena Zvezda 5-0, and Juventus beat Lokomotiv Moscow 2-1.
Tonight features some heavy-hitters beginning with Ajax and Chelsea at 17:55 GMT.
Ajax vs. Chelsea
Ajax is favorites to win tonight's matchup with 10Bet Sports posting odds of 2.30 for the Dutch squad and 2.80 for the Blues. Chelsea started the Group Stage a bit shaky and an away win tonight would boost their stock.
RB Leipzig vs Zenit St Petersburg
The heavily favored Leipzig hosts St Petersburg tonight at 17:55 GMT. Unibet Sports has the German Leipzig squad at 1.67 for the outright win and 5.40 for the Russians. It should be an exciting match for two of the underdogs left in the tournament.
Slava Praha vs. Barcelona
Get ready for Barcelona to put on a show against Slavia Praha. Favored 1.41 to 7.50 at 888Sport, Barcelona looks fantastic and this should be a high scoring game.
Red Bull vs Napoli
Salzburg hosts Napoli tonight and this match could not get any closer. 10Bet Sports has only a 0.05 difference between the two teams. Red Bull is at 2.55 and Napoli at 2.45.
Genk vs. Liverpool
The Reds are one of the hottest teams in this years' competition. They are huge favorites to win tonight at 1.30 to Genks' 9.70 by Unibet Sports.
Inter Milan vs. Dortmund
Coming off a couple of bad seasons, Inter looks decent this year. They are booked as favorites by 888Sport at 2.25 to 3.25 for Dortmund.
Lille vs. Valencia
Another very tight match with close odds as 10Bet Sports posts in favor of Lille at 2.60 and 2.65 for Valencia.
Benfica vs. Lyon
To close out an incredible evening of Champions League Football, Unibet likes Benefica at 2.30, while Lyon is at 3.25.
