APOEL Nicosia vs Ajax

Home - APOEL Nicosia
Last away matches - W-W-L-L-W-W

Apoel Nicosia the home team has 2 wins in their last 4 games and 1 draw. They had a good start to this season before they met Barcelona in the Nou Camp and was defeated by 1-0. If we don’t count that then they were undefeated in their last 3 games and scored 7 goals while conceding 1. But their defeat didn’t come as a surprise. The fact that they were able to hold Barcelona to only 1 goal meant they played well and their defense was good. Their league performance proves that too. Its up to them that either they take that loss positively and try to win this match or take it negatively which will hinder their performance in the next game. In my eyes they will be favored to win this game. Leading the rankings in the current season of the Cypriot top-tier league, APOEL are clearly one of the stongest sides to come out of Cyprus and compete in the UEFA tournament. Form-wise, however, the side are not necessarily displaying a perfect faÁade. In the ir last five matches, they have won three times, forced a draw once, and were beaten once as well. The only defeat from this streak was incurred from the Champions League Group stage opening, when they were beaten by Spanish side Barcelona and landed at the bottom of the group table.

Away - Ajax
Last away matches - W-W-W-L-W-L

Ajax managed to hold off Paris Saint Germain in their last Champions league match. Their play was outstanding and they were good at both offense and defense. There league performance is good and they are looking to win this match to keep their chance to go farther in the tournament. So they will play their best and the fact that they managed to hold of PSG should give them a lot of confidence. One of the Netherlands’ most successful teams, Ajax have been a perennial squad in the Champions League; in fact, they have already won the title four times. Their Group stage debut in the new season of the UEFA top-tier tournament gave them one point to rank in the mid-table, thanks to a grueling and highly entertaining battle they engaged with French giants Paris Saint-Germain. However, they need more than just a draw from their continental campaign and their chance to win back the Cup would only be strengthened if they make it on top—or near the top—of the Group round.

Asian Handicap
Home - (+0.25)
Away - (-0.25)
Pick - APOEL Nicosia (+0.25)
Odds - 1.82
Stakes - 8/10

Manchester City vs AS Roma

Home - Manchester City
Last away matches - W-L-D-W-L-W

Samir Nasri has undergone groin surgery that will rule him out for over a month, while Fernando will not be ready for the midweek encounter. However, Stevan Jovetic is in line to return for Manuel Pellegrini.If we talk about last 5 games then it becomes apparent that Manchester City is struggling to do anything on the field. A loss to Stoke city and another loss to Bayern Munich are in last 5 games while they also have 2 draw against Arsenal and Chelsea. Although their match up was against some strong clubs but a loss to Stoke was terrible performance from them. The only good news for them is they are coming into this match after thrashing Hull City by 4-2. Although their offense seemed pretty good but their defense was very poor in comparison. They will be the underdog in this match but they have equal chance of winning this match as Roma.

Away - AS Roma
Last away matches - W-W-W-W-W-W

Roma coach Rudi Garcia has his own injury problems to deal with; Daniele De Rossi is the latest high-profile casualty at the Stadio Olimpico, joining the likes of Juan Iturbe, Kevin Strootman and Davide Astori on the sidelines.Roma on the other hand is undefeated in their last 5 matches. They found the back of opponents net 9 times in these games while allowing only 1 goal from the opponents. Their offense and defense looked solid and they were very positive on the field showing that they are here to win. As the home team they have also got the home field advantage and home support cheering for them. No matter how someone looks at this, Roma is still the favorites to win this game.

Asian Handicap
Home - (-1.00)
Away - (+1.00)
Pick - AS Roma (+1.00)

BATE Borisov vs Athletic Bilbao

Home - BATE Borisov
Last away matches - D-L-W-D-W-D

BATE will be in a lot of pressure to win this game and try to avoid two consecutive loss as they were hammered in their last game against Porto. They were beaten by 6-0 and that will take a toll on the players. So they are desperate to win this game and gain back some of that lost confidence. Their unbeaten streak came to a standstill in their last game and they played very poor after a few goals were scored.The only side from Belarus to compete in the Champions League multiple times, BATE do not disappoint in terms of local flare and international charisma. The squad have managed to put their losses at a minimum in their past 32 matches—having lost zero times in the Premier League. However, the Champions League is a different story and while their form is generally okay, their UEFA Group stage debut was far from acceptable. BATE suffered the worst defeat of the tournament’s opening, conceding six goals to Porto while scoring zero. Their subsequent battle was not that impressive either, as they battled out a goalless draw against Dinamo Minsk in the Belarusian top-tier football.

Away - Athletic Bilbao
Last away matches - L-L-L-D-D-W

Athletic on the other hand were beaten by Malaga, Barcelona and Rayo. The moment they manage a win, they loose the next game. Its been tough for them but such poor result doesn’t do justice to their capability. Their last match was a draw against Eibar. They are finding it hard score while allowing a lot of goals but they are a good team and if they manage to play their best then they will be able to pull of a victory in this match. They are eager to get back to wining and considering their players and team capability, they are the favorites to win this game. Bilbao’s last five matches were largely unimpressive. While they managed to hold Eibar in La Liga and Shakhtar in the Champions League, they failed to earn all the marbles from Barcelona, Granada, and Rayo Vallecano—all in the Spanish top-flight tournament. However, the team have a strong record in UEFA. They have been runner up twice in the Champions League, first in the 1976-77 season and the second in the 2011-12 fixtures. They have also been Europa League participants several times and were winners of the Copa del Rey in 24 non-consecutive editions

Asian Handicap
Home - (+1.00)
Away - (-1.00)
Pick - BATE Borisov (+1.00)
Odds - 1.60

Paris Saint Germain vs Barcelona

Home - Paris Saint Germain
Last away matches - D-W-D-D-D-W

PSG has looked to get back into the upper echelon of European soccer with their free spending for legit players in the last couple of years, but can they beat the Spanish Giant? Odds makers have them as the home betting underdog in the first leg between these 2 teams in Champions League group play.Maybe the bigger question for PSG is can they score on the Barcelona defense? To say that the Barca defense is in top form would be a major understatement, as through 5 Spain La Liga matches they have yet to concede a goal.These 2 teams are not in the toughest of groups, but PSG did not get off to a good start playing to a draw with Ajax while Barca took 3 points beating APOEL. If PSG loses this match they may have to settle for 2nd in group play, which would mean they would likely play a top-flight club IF they advance to the knockout stage.

Away - Barcelona
Last away matches - D-W-W-W-D-W

Barcelona is tied with Valencia for first place in the La Liga table and they should be first, but played to a scoreless draw in their last match facing Malaga.It is no secret who the Barca defense has to key on in this CL match. Zlatan Ibrahimovic ranks 2nd in Ligue 1 with 5 goals and Edinson Cavani has 3. This due has scored more than half of PSG's goals this season in league play and if the Barcelona defense can keep them in check they have a great shot to take 3 points.Lionel Messi and Neymar each have 2 goals apiece and they ware the players the PSG defense has to key on. On the Ligue 1 season PSG has conceded 4 goals in 7 matches.While Messi is obviously a superstar the PSG defense cannot only focus on him, as he has made them pay when teams do that and that can be seen since he has the most assists so far in La Liga play.Look for PSG to employ the same old tactics that other clubs use against Barca, which is to drop back on defense, big time, and pick and choose their times to attack. However, that is not the strength of the French squad 11 and their counter-attack game does not suit them.PSG plays an attacking style and they are not as strong as Barcelona in the midfield. That area of the pitch will be very important in this game, especially for PSG, who really need to make sure than Barca does not totally dominate the time of possession.

Asian Handicap
Home - (+0.75)
Away - (-0.75)
Pick - Barcelona (-0.75)
Odds - 2.49

Home - Zenit St. Petersburg
Last away matches - W-W-W-W-W-W

Zenit made a strong start in its Champions League campaign when it scored 2 goals and kept Benfica at bay. This automatically earned them 3 crucial points that will somehow, make them a bit more secured in their upcoming matches. However, the squad cannot afford to be too complacent since Monaco, like them, is eager to advance in the competitionís next stage. Zenitís winning streak has also ended when Spartak held them to a draw last weekend. Hopefully, this will not affect their confidence and use it as inspiration instead. The team is solid defensively while scoring an average of almost three goals per game. This does not stop at the borders of Russia, since even in the European Cup, this observation is confirmed. Zenit went prevail in Portuguese Benfica, a regular in the competition, with a score of 2-0. There is therefore a strong team that is really not easy to play and is in great shape. Surely this is not the best time to play the Russians.

Away - AS Monaco
Last away matches - W-L-W-L-W-D

The season of Monaco is much more complicated however. A crisis of results occurred, undoubtedly from the combined departures of James Rodriguez and Radamel Falcao who have not been replaced qualitatively and the arrival of new coach Leonardo Jardim, the game project has struggled to implement.Despite an impressive start in the Champions League, AS Monaco is not devoid of problems in the domestic league. The squad continues to struggle after the loss of its star players such as James Rodriguez and Radamel Falcao. Its current situation is far-flung shot from what it accomplished last season. As a matter of fact, the squad has become a relegation favorite. With its dismal run in Ligue 1, AS Monaco could only hope that they still get the chance of scoring a great performance in the Champions League. you can also check Best Basketball Odds @Sbobet for basketball matches

Home - Anderlecht
Last away matches - W-W-D-D-D-D

Dortmund is hoping to take their second win in Group D Champions League match at Anderlecht as the German making a short journey to Belgium following their superb vicotry over Arsenal in the opening game at home! With, Borussia Dortmund had failed to win in their last three Bundesliga fixture clearly showed sings of lacking consistency lately, they had just lost to Schalke over the weekend seems unlucky, they really need to regroup now and started at Anderlecht!

Away - Borussia Dortmund
Last away matches - L-L-W-W-W-L

Anderlecht took a valuable draw at Galatasaray extended their unbeaten run to 17 competitive matches, morale is certainly high for the host, but Anderlecht had lost their last 4 Champions League fixture at home that had cast a doubt over the Belgium host in my opinion!
