The UEFA Champions League is back again this midweek with some mouthwatering fixtures on offer. We take a look at the key matchups and provide you with well-researched betting possibilities for the games. 

Bayern Munich vs Barcelona 

Barcelona are certainly the form team coming into this one. The arrival of Robert Lewandowski has given them extra impetus in attack. The big surprise however is the number of clean sheets and the newfound defensive solidity. Xavi’s men have only conceded twice in all competitions this season. Lewandowski will also be keen to get one over his former side. 

As for Bayern Munich, they’re on a bit of a rough patch. Three straight draws in the league including a disappointing 2-2 draw against Stuttgart at the weekend. However, this is still one of the best sides in Europe and could quite easily turn on the style at any time. 

Betting Tip – Over 2.5 goals /  Lewandowski to score.

Liverpool vs Ajax 

Liverpool definitely needed the enforced break in English football over the weekend. Klopp’s men seemed to be on a downward spiral that culminated in that heavy defeat to Napoli. This will undoubtedly be an opportunity for the players to perform much more cohesive than they have shown recently in the Champions League

Ajax are flying in the league. Unbeaten and scoring goals for fun. The sale of virtually half of last season’s starting XI has shown no effects on the team so far. However, Liverpool will be a significant step up from Dutch opposition and they can be prepared for an offensive onslaught. 

Betting Tip – Liverpool Win or Draw / Over 2.5 goals / Ajax to Score.
