Red Star to secure Champions League spot


Tuesday marks the conclusion of three Champions League play-off round ties and Crvena Zvezda, commonly known as Red Star Belgrade, look ready to book their place in the main draw.

Red Star to win @ 6/4

The Serbian outfit played in Europe’s elite club competition for the first time last season and although they finished bottom of Group C, they earned huge respect after drawing with Serie A giants Napoli and beating eventual European champions Liverpool.

Red Star, who beat Copenhagen 7-6 on penalties in the previous round, managed a 2-2 draw in the first leg of their play-off round clash at Basel last week and those away goals could prove crucial.

Vladan Milojevic’s men have suffered just one home defeat in their last 11 competitive matches and they come up against a Basel side that have lost 10 of their 12 away games in CL history.

Rosenborg v Dinamo Zagreb – Over 2.5 goals @ 20/23

Croatian outfit Dinamo put in a strong performance to win the first leg 2-0 and they will be feeling confident of securing their progression, which they are heavy 1/20 favourites to do.

With a two-goal deficit to make up, Rosenborg will have to come out with an attacking approach and they have won their last seven home games, scoring 23 goals and conceding six.

As for Zagreb, they are unbeaten in their previous seven competitive away matches and scoring goals has not been an issue either, having found the back of the net 14 times in that run.

Krasnodar v Olympiakos – BTTS @ 5/7

This tie as a contest is all but over after Olympiakos thrashed Krasnodar 4-0 in the first leg at the Karaiskakis Stadium, but there is still some value in the both teams to score market on Tuesday.

The hosts will look to make a game of things, meaning they will be ultra attacking, and goals have been easy to come by in recent weeks as they have failed to score in only two of their last nine outings.

Olympiakos know one away goal will knock the stuffing out of their opponents further and the Greek giants have scored 17 goals from their last seven games on the road.
