Today’s top Champions League betting picks are focused on four interesting clashes from Europe’s premier football competition. We start with the early fixture between Galatasary and Copenhagen, and Real Madrid hosting the newcomers from Union Berlin. We will be looking to bring even more winners from the matches between Real Sociedad vs Inter, and Arsenla v PSV. The other games that captivate our attention are Bayern Munich v Manchester United, where we feel that a surprise could be on the cards. In London, Arsenal hosts a dangerous PSV side which we’ve already covered in its route to the group stage. The last interesting game in terms of betting is Braga v Napoli.
Galatasaray v Copenhagen Prediction
Galatasary have formed an impressive squad featuring Zaha, Icardi, Hakim Ziyech, and Mertens up front. Lucas Torreira and former Leverkusen midfielder Demirbay. The ultra attacking and impressive left back from Red Bull Leipzig Angelino, and former Lazio goalkeeper and Urugay international Muslera in goal.
Copenhagen had an impressive qualification route to the group stages of the Champions League eliminating Rakow Czestochowa, Sparta Prague, and Breidablik. They have a strong forward line with Mohamed Elyounoussi, Jordan Larsson, and Elias Achouri. Similar to Galatasary, the Danish champions play with 3 players up front in a 4-3-3 system.
Betting Pick: Over 2.5 Goals @ 1.80
Real Madrid v Union Berlin
Real Madrid host Champions League debutants Union Berlin at the Bernabeu and most punters, including the bookies are heavily favoring the Spanish giants to easily win this game. The odds for a Real Madrid win are at 1.40, but I don’t think it will be such an easy game for them.
Union Berlin is a club with a distinctive identity – one that is wholly owned by its passionate fan base. The club’s financial foundation is solidly rooted in the support of over 40,000 devoted members, who play a pivotal role in shaping its destiny. These members exercise their influence in significant ways, including the selection of the chief executive and board members. This stands in stark contrast to clubs like Leipzig, which are often seen as artificially created entities, and industrialized teams like Wolfsburg, emphasizing a more traditional path to success, one that doesn’t rely solely on financial prowess.
Union Berlin is not a club characterized by fanaticism, but rather one that has become an integral part of its local community. The club attributes a substantial portion of its achievements to the exceptional partnership of Swiss manager Urs Fischer and managing director Oliver Ruhnert. Both have held their positions since 2018 and have skillfully overseen the club’s remarkable ascent.
Real Madrid To Win & Under 2.5 Goals
Real Sociedad v Inter Prediction
Real Sociedad host Italian giants Inter Milano in what should be an interesting game. Inter are coming of an impressive 5:1 win in the derby against Milan, so they find themselves in excellent form and great spirits. The only major absentee for the Italians is Chalhanoglu, but Fratesi looks more than ready to replace him. In-form Thuram, who scored a wonderful goal against Milan, will lead the attack with captain Lautaro Martinez. Aside from the absence of Chala, Inzaghi is expected to field the same lineup as in the derby.
Real Sociedad played quite well in their last game and took an early lead against Real Madrid on Sunday. However, Real Madrid were able to turn the result around in the second half and Sociedad left Bernabeu empty-handed. Still, it was a good display from Real Sociedad and I expect them to cause Inter plenty of problems.
Traditionally, Inter has had a hard time playing in Spain, and I would not be surprised to see Real Sociedad winning this game. To be precise, the Nerazzuri have won only one game in their last 11 games against Spanish clubs in Champions League.The odds for the home win are just over 3.00, so that’s real value. I would not recommend betting on Inter in this game.
