Live Betting: Champions League Matchday 2Published September 29, 2015 by Sol FH
Eight matches on the Champions League card tonight with action across Europe beginning at 19:45 GMT.
The second Matchday of the 2015/16 Champions League group stage is set to kick-off tonight with big games across the board. After a wild week of round one action mid-September, the top teams and big upsets are easier to judge. Tonight will be a punters' paradise with hundreds of betting markets available on all games offered by online bookmakers like bet365, and with the right bet, one could be in for a real money winning kind of night.
Barcelona vs Bayer Leverkusen
Barcelona are the defending Champions League champions and after their first draw against Roma, it is about time for Messi and the rest of the star-studded roster to get back to domination and need to do it at home tonight against Leverkusen. Barca are huge favorites to win tonight at 1.36, while Leverkusen come in, in need of a prayer to make up for the 9.50 they will need to overcome for a win.
Prediction: Barcelona 2, Bayer Leverkusen 0
FC BATE Borisov vs Porto
Porto was amazing against Barcelona and were able to hold on for the draw with the Spaniards in week one. BATE were crushed by Leverkusen in week one 4-1 and their chances against Roma tonight are just as ill-fated. Bet365 posts BATE at 4.75, while favorites Roma are at 1.90 in the visitor role.
Prediction: BATE 1, Porto 3
Arsenal vs Olympiakos
Both teams lost in their Champions League opener and will be in need of a win to get back into business with Bayern and Dinamo Zagreb. Arsenal are the favorites tonight but they could be surprised with the talent on the side of Olympiakos. A draw could be the best bet at 4.75, but Arsenal are big favorites at 1.45, while Olympiakos come in at 8.00 flat.
Prediction: Arsenal 2, Olympiakos 0
Bayern Munich vs Dynamo Zagreb
The two leaders of the group take each other on tonight in Munich and this match will surely give valuable information as to which team is best in group. There are few chances that Bayern will lose or even draw with Zagreb, and odds maker bet365 tends to agree with the Germans at 1.083 and the Croatian team at 34.00.
Prediction: Bayern 3, Zagreb 0
There are a number of additional matches in Groups G and H featuring Maccabi Tel Aviv (4.50) vs Dynamo Kiev (1.90), FC Porto (2.37) vs Chelsea (3.30), Lyon (2.75) vs Valencia (2.80), and Zenit St. Petersburgh (1.40) vs Gent (9.00).
