Tuesday Champions League Tips

Our snapshot previews of both Champions League games featuring British teams on Tuesday night, starting with Tottenham’s visit to the BayArena in Leverkusen.

Bayer Leverkusen v Spurs     BT-Sport-2

Draw1X213/5Sky Bet
Under 2.5Total Goals21/20Betfair
Son Heung-Min (ew)First Goalscorer15/2Paddy Power

Spurs are outsiders with bookmakers for this fixture at 5/2 with Bet365, while the hosts are a best price of 5/4 with Paddy Power, with the draw at 13/5 with Sky Bet.

Spurs are second in Group E (W1, L1) and an away draw would be a good result for Mauricio Pochettino’s side against a side who held Barcelona here 1-1 last season.

We think that Spurs will play cautiously, possibly with Eric Dier in a central defensive role, and as such we fancy a low scoring affair – Under 2.5 Goals is best price 21/20.

Son Heung-Min, scorer of 5 goals already this season, is 15/2 with Paddy Power to score first against his former club, while we also suggest backing the draw at 13/5.

Leicester City v Copenhagen     BT Sport Europe

LeicesterTo Win To Nil2/1Paddy Power
Leicester 1-0Correct Score5/1Bet365
Leicester 2-0Correct Score7/1Bet365
Islam SlimaniFirst Goalscorer9/2Bet365
Riyad MahrezFirst Goalscorer6/1Bet365

By contrast to their stuttering Premier League defence, the Foxes have started their Champions League campaign with two victories and it’s odds-on that they make it 3.

Bet365 offer the best odds of 10/11 on Leicester and 15/4 on Copenhagen, while the draw can be backed at a best price of 13/5 with BetVictor.

City have yet to concede a goal in this competition and they are 2/1 to win this game ‘to nil’ – which looks attractive given they have also only conceded one goal in four Premier League games at the King Power Stadium this season (including two 0-0’s).

Backing Leicester to win 1-0 and 2-0 also looks a sound strategy here – especially as Bet365 offer money back on losing Correct Score bets on all matches that end 0-0.

Finally, Islam Slimani and Riyad Mahrez were both rested against Chelsea at the weekend and we suggest backing both to score first at 9/2 and 6/1 respectively.
