Manchester City can’t afford to drop points when they travel to play Club Brugge, while perfect Liverpool is ready to put on another great show on Tuesday on the road at Atletico Madrid. Our sportsbook is offering great odds for our two-team parlay.
Club Brugge vs Manchester City
After two winless games, the Citizens bounced back at the weekend by beating Burnley 2-0 on their home turf with Bernardo Silva and Kevin de Bruyne contributing on the scoreboard. They are now back in action in the Champions League, and they can’t afford to drop more points as they are fighting for a knock-out spot.
This is a pretty crucial game for Pep Guardiola and Co. as they are sitting third in Group A standings with just three points earned in two games. After an impressive 6-3 win against RB Leipzig in Matchday 1, the Citizens suffered a 2-0 defeat against Paris Saint-Germain last month despite dominating the ball.
They are huge favorites to win this clash and are priced at -375 with the latest soccer odds against the Belgium team. The visitors are definitely capable of securing the needed three points but there’s no value betting on the moneyline.
The champions of Belgium currently sit in second place after a superb 1-1 draw against PSG that was played in front of a thrilling atmosphere at the Jan Breydel Stadium. That was followed by another classy 2-1 win against RB Leipzig. Let’s not forget that they pulled off some great upsets in Europe over the past years, keeping Real Madrid, Manchester United and Lazio to draws.
They are unbeaten in seven home games across all competitions and are the surprise package so far in this group. They will certainly play their chance on Tuesday against the English Premier League giants.
For City, the defeat at PSG ended a 10-game unbeaten streak in Champions League away games. This is their first-ever meeting with Brugge, and they will not accept anything less than a comfortable win. They have the necessary weapons to open Brugge’s defensive line and can be unstoppable on their day. They should be able to score at least three goals on their own and cover the -1½-goal spread. Ederson and Gabriel Jesus have returned from international duty and will be included in the squad.
Pick: Manchester City -1½ goals (-125)
Atletico Madrid vs Liverpool
Liverpool is enjoying a sensational season. The Reds are the only unbeaten team in the Premier League, sitting second in the standings, just one point behind Chelsea. They scored 22 goals in eight EPL games, averaging almost three goals per match. Mo Salah is on fire and is breaking record after record. He netted seven goals and collected four assists in the domestic league, adding three more to his season tally in the Champions League.
They will travel to the Wanda Metropolitano to take on Atletico Madrid in Group B and they are priced at +125 with the best soccer odds. The Reds have not suffered a loss in competitive fixtures since their defeat against Real Madrid back in April.
Jurgen Klopp and Co. are leading Group B standings with two wins in two games after beating both AC Milan and FC Porto and scoring eight goals in the process. They’ve kept up their superb scoring form, netting at least three goals in each of their six away games.
With their scheduled La Liga fixture with Granada postponed due to late arrivals back from the international break, Atletico Madrid had plenty of time to work out and get ready for this clash. Stefan Savic, Matheus Cunha and Jose Gimenez are all ruled out for Tuesday’s game.
Atletico became a formidable force in Europe under Diego Simeone and is one of the most consistent teams in Europe’s top five leagues, but Liverpool’s form and attacking line should deliver once again. Salah scored in nine of his last 10 games for Liverpool and we expect him to extend his goal-scoring form. He’s priced at +125 to be anytime goal scorer but for our parlay we are going with the away win.
