The Champions League is back on Wednesday and some of the best European clubs are in action playing their 1st round of fixtures. Let’s analyze the most important games and find the best value bets.

Liverpool will try to bounce back after the horrible Premier League performance against Manchester City. Both teams should be pleased with the group stage draw and they should both qualify further by winning against Spartak Moscow and Maribor. Sevilla have a great start of the season being unbeaten in their domestic league and keeping 2 clean sheets in their 1st three fixtures. Sevilla’s star Nolito has been left out of the squad for the clash against Liverpool. Considering both teams attacking strength and Liverpool’s poor defense we expect a goal-fest with Sevilla contributing on the scoreboard. Best pick for the match: Both teams to score and over 2.5 goals in the match at -117 with Coral.

 Leipzig vs. Monaco

Leipzig make their UEFA Champions League debut on Wednesday when they host French Ligue 1 champs Monaco. Monaco were destroyed 4-0 away at Nice last weekend in their domestic league and they will try to bounce back and return home with the three points from their Champions League visit. This is not a walk in the park from the French team. They should step up their game in front of a tough opponent, a really organized Leipzig squad. Monaco have have lost Kylian Mbappe, Tiemoue Bakayoko, Bernardo Silva and Benjamin Mendy over the summer break, while signing Youri Tielemans, Terence Kongolo, Keita Balde and Stevan Jovetic as replacements. Monaco have won 4 of their 8 games away to German opposition, drawing 2 and losing 2. Monaco enter this match with the 1st chance but the match will be closer than expected. Best pick for the match: over 2.5 goals at -133 with Betway.

 Tottenham vs. Dortmund

Tottenham kick-off their 2017/18 Champions League campaign on Wednesday when they host Dortmund. This match should be the clash of the day in Europe, an entertaining match between two attacking minded sides. Playing their home games at Wembley is not the best news for the Spurs – they failed to win their two home fixtures at Wembley this season plus they failed to qualify from the Champions League group last season, finishing 3rd in the standings, losing 2 of their 3 home games. Dortmund have won both of their previous mutual encounters against Tottenham in Europa League in 2016 each time with at least three goals in the match. Both teams are packed with talented and skillful players and we expect a thrilling match with both squads being able to find the back of the net. Tottenham have scored in 19 of their last 20 competitive fixtures but Dortmund have more experience in the Champions League and they can’t be ignored at this price. Best pick for the match: Dortmund to win with DNB (Draw No Bet) at +120 with Bet365.

 Feyenoord vs. Manchester City

Manchester City destroyed Liverpool on Saturday, winning 5-0 and closing the gap on Manchester United. Their attacking firepower is lethal but despite spending over $150m to rebuild their defense, they still struggle to keep the opposition from finding the back of the net. This will be the 1st competitive meeting between these two clubs with The Citizens being huge favorites to win the match. Manchester City are by far the better team and should enjoy a comfortable victory against the Eredivisie team. Best pick for the match: Manchester City to win and over 2.5 goals in the match at -105 with William Hill.
