BTTS Tips: Four-fold for Wednesday's Champions League fixtures
The second evening of Champions League football serves us up eight more games from the first slate of group fixtures. We've included half of them in our Wednesday BTTS accumulator which you can read all about below...
Ajax vs Rangers
Ajax's dominance in the Eredivisie looks set to continue, with Alfred Schreuder's side picking up from where Erik ten Hag left off; winning their opening five matches by an aggregate score of 16-3.
Rangers' return to the Champions League group stages comes on the back of a humiliating 4-0 defeat in last Saturday's Old Firm and Giovanni van Bronckhorst's men will be keen to make amends for that result in Amsterdam.
Their visit to Celtic Park was the first time this season that BTTS has failed to land for the Scottish outfit on the road.
This pair should play out a competitive fixture in which both will look for maximum points considering that Napoli and Liverpool make up the other half of this particular group.
Atletico Madrid vs FC Porto
Diego Simeone's team are notorious for their safeguarding style of football, but the Champions League certainly throws up more tests than your average La Liga fixture is likely to.
They have scored five goals and conceded three so far, currently sitting in 7th place domestically. As for Porto, 2/5 of their matches have seen both teams score, having also netted three times during their two away matches this term.
These two were drawn into the same group last year, playing out a 0-0 draw in their opener at the Wanda Metropolitano. However, BTTS landed in their reverse fixture where four goals were scored between them, and we're expecting both to get on the scoresheet at least once in this repeat encounter.
Inter vs Bayern Munich
Similar to Rangers, Inter kick off their Champions League campaign after suffering a derby defeat. That loss leaves them all the way down in 8th in Serie A, having scored 11 goals and failed to keep out eight.
The perennial Bayern Munich-Bundesliga walkover hasn't exactly gotten off to its typical glowing start, with the champions dropping four points in their opening five fixtures despite remaining undefeated.
Bayern have conceded six times this campaign as both teams have scored in four of their opening six, beginning with a 5-3 scoreline in the DFL Super Cup vs RB Leipzig.
With BTTS landing in half of Bayern's Champions League matches last season - including three of their last four in the competition - and a wealth of attacking talent on show for both sides, it's difficult to look past its inclusion here.
Napoli vs Liverpool
Elsewhere in Italy, second placed Napoli entertain the second British selection in our accumulator as Liverpool rock up to the Diego Armando Maradona Stadium at 8pm.
Liverpool's high line and general defensive woes are well documented at this point, and it's an area that a side who have scored 12 goals in their opening four Serie A matches will look to exploit as much as possible.
The atmosphere in a stadium like Napoli's will only add to the size of the occasion, but Jurgen Klopp clearly made adjustments in-play during Saturday's Merseyside derby to accommodate Wednesday's trip.
Last time the Reds visited here, they went home with their tails between their legs following a 2-0 defeat. Expect them to display enough to see off the hosts as the European competition really does ignite a different beast in the PL side, but not before a close scare that sees Napoli find the back of the net.
Please gamble responsibly.
