Tuesday’s Champions League Preview – BVB can take care of champions

The Champions League continues on Tuesday with two of the English teams in action, as well as a mouth-watering clash for the holders.

One of those Premier League sides is Leicester, who will be looking to put their domestic woes behind them against Group G rivals Porto. The Foxes are the 5/4 favourites and look good to emulate their opening win at Club Brugge, as they aim to forget Saturday’s heavy defeat to Manchester United.

Porto are priced at 49/20 for the game and go into the clash having beaten Boavista at the weekend. They may not have as many stars as yesteryear but the Champions League experience within the 2004 winners’ squad means they are sure to be dangerous.

The other game involving an English team is in Group E as Tottenham travel to CSKA Moscow. The North Londoners were taught a lesson by a seasoned Champions League outfit in their opening defeat to Monaco and need to bounce back in the Russian capital. They are the understandable 27/20 favourites to take the points but will again be without Harry Kane due to injury.

The 43/20 underdogs CSKA were previously seen as a side who could cause upsets in this competition but are another club who do not look as strong as in previous years. They are the Russian champions though and also have the extra motivation of this being their first Champions League game at their new home, the Arena CSKA.

Arguably the game of the night however sees Borussia Dortmund host holders Real Madrid in Group F. 29/20 favourites Dortmund have won on the last three occasions these two have met at Signal Iduna Park and head into the game on the back of four straight victories in all competitions.

Real made a brilliant start to the campaign but draws against Villarreal and Las Palmas have set them back. At 7/4, Los Blancos certainly look a good price, especially having been undefeated in 14 of their last 15 Champions League outings.

Interestingly that loss came in Germany against Wolfsburg but with plenty of firepower on show from both sides, goals may be the way to go for this one.

The usual markets seem a bit short but with Der BVB equalling a club record 24 home games without defeat on Friday, Dortmund to win and both teams to score at 5/2 is very appealing.
