The Champions League is back, so it’s time to place your bets on the upcoming round of fixtures. I’m expecting plenty of goals when Atalanta host Dinamo Zagreb. Bayern Munich should cruise to a comfortable victory over Red Star Belgrade, while an Inter Milan win at 2.20 seems too good to miss. Here are the best bets for Matchday 5 of the 2019/20 Champions League.
Atalanta vs. Dinamo Zagreb – 11/26/19
Atalanta picked up their first point of the 2019/20 Champions League campaign after a well-deserved draw with Manchester City in the previous round. The Italian side have conceded 12 goals in Group C so far. Dinamo Zagreb are four points ahead of Atalanta in the group. The Croatians have netted nine times and have conceded seven. Both teams are dangerous going forward, but they both have obvious weaknesses at the back. For that reason, both teams to score makes sense here.
Pick: Both Teams to Score – 1.60
Red Star Belgrade vs. Bayern Munich – 11/26/19
Bayern Munich are flying high at the top of Group B. They have won each of their four games so far and have scored 15 goals in the process (at a rate of over 3.5 goals per game). Red Star are third in Group B, but they are still four points behind second-place Tottenham Hotspur, so qualification for the knockout stages is looking unlikely. Bayern are the clear favorites to win this game at 1.25, while Red Star are firm outsiders at 10.00. The German side have been scoring goals for fun lately, so I’m backing them to win both halves on Tuesday.
Pick: Bayern Munich to Win Half Time/Full Time – 1.80
Slavia Prague vs. Inter Milan – 11/27/19
Slavia are massive underdogs in Group F after being drawn alongside European heavyweights Barcelona, Borussia Dortmund and Inter Milan. The Czech side have managed to pick up impressive draws with Barcelona and Inter, but the Italians should have more than enough firepower to get the better of Slavia this time around. Lautaro Martinez has scored in three of Inter’s four Champions League games this season, while fellow forward Romelu Lukaku has scored ten goals in all competitions since moving from Manchester United.
Pick: Inter Milan to Win – 2.20
