The Champions League 2021-22 group stage begins this week and that only means one thing – that the greatest club football show on Earth returns! So make sure you don’t miss out on any of it because here you’ve got the biggest teams with the brightest stars facing each other, ready to get their hands on the Cup with the big ears! And as always, at 10CRIC you will find the highest odds and the best expert tips. So let’s dive straight into this week’s totally unmissable action…
Barcelona vs Bayern: Another big Bayern win?
The last time these two teams met was back in the summer of 2020 when Bayern thrashed Barcelona 8-2 in the quarter-finals! And that was despite the fact that the Spanish team had a certain Lionel Messi… With the Argentinian magician no longer there, can there be another impressive Bayern victory on the cards? The Bavarians are 1.97 to win the match but we think the German giants can beat their Spanish hosts by at least 2 goals (example: Bayern to win 2-0, 3-1, 4-2, etc) so…
RECOMMENDED BET: Back Bayern at 6.00 to beat Barcelona by 2 goals
Liverpool vs Milan: The Miracle of Istanbul returns
In 2005 Liverpool and Milan produced possibly the greatest Champions League final in history, with the English side having won on penalties despite Milan having taken a 3-goal lead in the first half. After the break Liverpool managed to come back and score 3 goals and then to clinch the trophy in what is still known as the Miracle of Istanbul. Two years later, in 2007, Milan got their sweet revenge by beating Liverpool 2-1 in that season’s final. Curiously, this week’s clash will be the first time these two teams meet after the 2007 final in Athens. And we reckon that a draw with goals (example: 1-1, 2-2, etc) might be a good option to bet on.
RECOMMENDED BET: Get 5.00 on a draw between Liverpool and Milan and both teams to score
Inter vs Real Madrid: Three in a row for Real?
Ironically, Inter and Real Madrid were in the same group last season as well. Back then Real claimed two wins (3-2 in Madrid and 2-0 in Milan) and now the question is: can Real make it three in a row against the reigning Italian champions? We think the answer is ‘Yes’ as Inter lost their mastermind coach Antonio Conte and their top scorer Romelu Lukaku in the summer. So how about another Real triumph and both teams to find the back of the net (example: Real to win 2-1, 3-2, etc)?
RECOMMENDED BET: Get 4.60 on Real Madrid to win and both teams to score
