Football Tips // Champions League Qualifying // Wednesday


Today we have a full set of tips, with all four games being in the Champions League qualifying. We managed 4/4 in the last set of Europa League qualifying, so hopefully similar today. I’d say I’m at least 75-80% sure on both BTTS games, while the first two I’m over 90% on, with only a bout of bad luck to worry about.

1. Celtic -1 Corner Handicap @ 21/20 vs Stjarnan (2015 KO, NAP)

Celtic won the first leg 2-0, and 9-1 on corners. Stjarnan set out to defend, and went 44 minutes before conceding. They will have to come out attacking, which will not suit them and will play into the hands of Celtic who can counter very quickly with some good forward players. This is exceptional value!!

2. BATE Borisov Win @ 11/8 vs Dundalk (1945 KO)

BATE won 2-1 in the first leg so the match is very much open. Dundalk will know one goal in a 1-0 win would be enough as they have the all-important away goal. BATE have the quality over them, and experience of Champions League football before, so I think their experience will win them the game and the tie. Form is irrelevant, with both playing in poor quality leagues.

3. Lech Poznan-Sarajevo BTTS @ 6/5 (1945 KO)

Somehow, Sarajevo dominated the tie and had many more shots on target, but did not score. Lech won 2-0 and this will mean Sarajevo need goals, and will certainly go for it. I strongly believe they will score, as will Poznan.

4. Fola-Dinamo Zagreb BTTS @ Evens (1900 KO)

Fola are in pretty good form, although as mentioned that is irrelevant. Dinamo Zagreb have conceded in their last four away games, and despite having a good forward line they struggle at the back. The first leg ended 1-1, with Fola getting the away goal. Over 2.5 is a good bet, with Zagreb beating them 5-0 away in 2013, but I feel this is a little safer incase it ends 1-1.


1. NAP: 1 @ 21/20
2. Double: 1 + 2 @ 4/1
3. Treble: 1, 2 + 3 @ 9/1
4. Acca: All Four @ 20/1

Usually I avoid doing the NAP in the single and double but I’m just very confident on this one!
