Champions League Match Day One, Tips & Previews, Sep 14th

The beginning of the European Champions League is here as the Bet Deluxe team looks at the best bets and previews the big games for match day one.

Manchester United and Cristiano Ronaldo begin their Champions League tenure on match day one, while a host of other European giants do battle. 

The Bet Deluxe team has landed on the best bets and same game multis from the best games across Wednesday morning. 

BSC Young Boys vs. Manchester United

September 15th 2:45am

Cristiano Ronaldo and Manchester United will begin another Champions League sojourn together when they face BSC Young Boys in the opening game for Group F.

United has been in solid league form coming into this clash after Ronaldo’s brace upon his first game back since signing for his old club helped them defeated Newcastle 4-1 at Old Trafford. 

BSC Young Boys finds itself with a tough task to begin its Champions League tournament and have not exactly been setting the world alight in the Swiss League either, but had a big result over the weekend. 

The Swiss based side crushed league-leader FC Zurich 4-0 and has hit winning form at the right time. 

Stopping Ronaldo is a near impossible task. 

However, the vulnerability might be at the back for the Red Devils who looked a bit sloppy in defence against the Magpies. 

An intriguing game nonetheless as we get to see Ronaldo in the Champions League in a Red Devil shirt. 

Should be a United win. 

Prediction: BSC Young Boys 1 Manchester United 2

Suggested Bets: Cristiano Ronaldo any time goalscorer at $1.55

Suggested Same Game Multi: 
Leg 1: C. Ronaldo any time goalscorer 
Leg 2: Manchester United head to head
Leg 3: Total goals over 2.5 
Combined odds = $2.15

FC Barcelona vs. Bayern Munich

September 15th 5:00am

Two of the biggest European footballing giants get us underway in Group E come Wednesday morning from Camp Nou.

Lionel Messi will no longer be able to help Barcelona through the Champions League having left to join PSG on a record-breaking contract. 

Barcelona’s fall from grace in Europe has been documented and it currently sits seventh in La Liga with a game in hand, while Bayern Munich hold down second place in Bundesliga. 

Munich has had the edge over Barcelona in their Champions League head to head history having won six of the nine contests.

The 2019/20 quarter finals was the last time these teams met in the Champions League and Bayern Munich smashed Barcelona with an 8-2 aggregate victory. 

Since then, Munich has arguably become a better team whereas Barcelona has dropped off the boil. 

Prediction: Barcelona 1 Bayern Munich 2

Suggested Bets: Bayern Munich head to head at $1.95 

Suggested Same Game Multi: 
Leg 1: Bayern Munich head to head
Leg 2: R. Lewandowski any time goalscorer
Leg 3: Total goals over 2.5 
Combined odds = $2.88

Chelsea vs. Zenit Saint-Petersburg

September 15th 5:00am

Reigning European champion Chelsea welcomes Zenit Saint-Petersburg to Stamford Bridge as the pair look to open their accounts in Group H. 

The Blues remain undefeated in the Premier League under Thomas Tuchel and will be calling upon the services of newly acquired talisman Romelu Lukaku to find a way to victory. 

Zenit, too, is yet to taste defeat in its domestic league and comes into this contest having scored back-to-back victories. 

The Russian-based squad will be looking to improve on its early exit from the competition last year,  but face the sternest test possible to begin its campaign. 

Traveling away to face such a European powerhouse is a task head coach Sergei Semak must mentally prepare his men for if Zenit wishes to progress past the group stage for the first time since the 2015-16 Champions League. 

Expecting this to be a winning start for Chelsea who will have the home crowd advantage as well as a superior team on paper. 

Prediction: Chelsea 3 Zenit Saint-Petersburg 0

Suggested Bets: R. Lukaku first goalscorer at $2.75

Suggested Same Game Multi: 
Leg 1: R. Lukaku any time goalscorer
Leg 2: T. Werner any time goalscorer
Leg 3: Both teams to score – NO
Combined odds = $4.6
