Champions League Betting: Group A Tips


Dynamo Kiev 2.60  The Draw 3.35  Porto 2.65

These two perrenial Champions League sides threw up an enthralling five-goal thriller two weeks ago at the Estadio Do Drago, where Porto ran out 3-2 winners thanks to a late strike from new scoring sensation Jackson Martinez.

The Colombian hitman arrived to replace countryman Falcao in the summer, and has since notched a goal per game for his new club. Back him at 6.50 to score first here.

Porto have a 100% record in Group A, and are flying in the Portuguese leaue too, but there are few tougher away trips than this one, and Kiev - with one win from three games so far - will be desperate to keep their qualification hopes alive on home turf.

Here's expecting a tight affair, with neither side wanting to lose. But the attackign talent on show means it's almost certain they'll be goals. 

Score Prediction: Kiev 1-1 Porto at 6.75

Paris St Germain 1.15  The Draw 7.40  Dinamo Zagreb 17.50

Hosts PSG were expected to cruise through this group having splashed copious cash on new arrivals in the close season. And they are sitting pretty after 6 points from a possible 9 so far. But with Porti setting the Group A pace, this is a must-win for Carlo Ancellotti's side.  

Zagreb are pointless from their opening three games and were beaten 2-0 on their home patch courtesy of strikes from Menez and Ibrahimovic last time out. I must say they look like lambs to the slaughter here. 

Zlatan has as expected been supreme for the French side since joining from AC Milan. Back the big Swede to score first at 3.00, as his team run out comfortable winners in the Parc De Princes. 

Score Prediction: PSG 4-1 Zagreb at 19.00
