Bayern must overcome Barcelona and Real Madrid
Europe’s best football clubs meet in the first and second match day of the UEFA Champions League. On that occasion, Tipico presents an overview of the favorites in the race for winning the “elite league” and the highlights of the first match day. According to the Tipico bookmakers, also the upcoming Champions League season will be dominated by a Spanish-German trio. At the top of the list is the FC Barcelona. Who places a winning bet on the Catalans wins 42 Euro for a stake of ten Euro. The FC Bayern stands at odds of 4.7 and are the bookmaker’s second choice for winning the UEFA Champions League. Despite a good start into the season and a well-composed squad it will be difficult to bring the trophy to the Bavarian capital. After all, the “Royals” from Madrid lie in wait for their next CL-coup. The Madrileños hold the record in UEFA Champions League titles with eleven triumphs in their history books.
Borussia Dortmund and Borussia Monchengladbach start away, Bayer at home
Both, Tuchel’s Dortmund and the Foals from Gladbach have to travel abroad for their first group matches. The BVB has to compete in Poland against Legia Warsaw. As expected, Borussia are the clear favorite (odds of 1.35). Who places his hopes and 10 Euro on the Polish minnows can win 90 Euro back in case of an international surprise. Even a draw would bring a staggering 50 Euro.
For Gladbach the first group match is incomparably tougher. The Foals have to face Manchester City (odds of 1.43) in England and will meet ex-Bayern coach Pep Guardiola there. Manchester City is currently in fine form and has proven that also in the play-off matches against Steaua Bucharest, where they won both matches with a total of six goals to nil. Who still believes in Gladbach can get 70 Euros back for a stake of ten.
Bayer 04 Leverkusen plays its first CL match of the new season in their own stadium. On Wednesday evening, the team of coach Roger Schmidt is going for the first win in the group stages at odds of 1.6 against CSKA Moscow. But beware! The Muscovites are in good shape and won four out of the last five competitive matches. Remarkably high odds of 5.4 on a Russian win, therefore, would certainly be worth a try.
The top match of the match day one
Of course, we also want to catch a glimpse of the groups without a German team. The top match of match day one of the Champions League group stage will take place in the capital of France. On Wednesday at 20:45, Paris Saint Germain will cross swords with Arsenal FC in the Parc des Princes. Paris remains favorite despite the departure of Swedish superstar Zlatan Ibrahimović. The French open the match at odds of 1.9 for a win, while legendary gaffer Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal pays 40 Euro on ten should they take the three points back with them to the Thames’ shores.
