UEFA Champions League

Group F

Bet: Real’s handicap (-2)

Real Madrid has made a perfect start to the new season. With nine points Zinedine Zidan’s side is now a sole Primera leader. Blancos look confident after three wins from three. Confirming sports betting predictions they have overcame Real Sociedad (3-0), Celta Vigo (2-1) and Osasuna (5-2). Apart from that Madrid has already won a trophy, having beaten Sevilla (3-2) in 2016 UEFA Super Cup. Almost all betting companies considered Real to be a favorite in that fixture and Zidane’s team proved its value even without their main stars.

Sporting has also made a brilliant start this year. Last season Jorge Jesus’ team did not care a lot about Europa League and focused on the national competitions, but contrary to all betting predictions they failed to win Primeira Liga. Lions were runners-up, however, at the start of the new season they got back on top of the table after winning four games out of four. It should be mentioned that after 4 match weeks the Portuguese have scored 8 goals and conceded only one goal. Despite its recent good form, Sporting is not assumed to be a favorite by betting.

While choosing a bet you should take into account the fact that Zidane can now rely on all his best players except for Isco. It is important that the trio Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema is fully fit. So Spanish team should not have problems at Bernabeu because Sporting is definitely weaker and will probably feel insecure in the away game. In addition, when betting pay attention to the fact that the Lions have not won in any of their previous 10 visits to Spain, with 3 draws and 7 losses. As for Madrid, it has 8 wins and a draw against Portuguese opponents at home.  

The bookmakers have no doubts about the winner of this game: Real Madrid – 1,22, Draw – 6,50, Sporting – 13,00. The Portuguese have strong rivals (Madrid and Dortmund), but they will try to get past the group stage owing to home matches where they can be very dangerous. In Spain it will be quite difficult to get even one point that is why you can bet on Real’s handicap (-2) (1,97). You can also pick Total Goals by Home Team over 2,5 (1,73). Besides, the bet Both Teams to Score (1,82) seems quite good, because Madrid’s defensive line is not faultless. Moreover you can choose a combination Both teams to score and home team to win (2,50).
