Champions League Match Day Eleven, Tips & Previews, December 8th

Match day eight of European Champions League is here as our team goes through the best bets and selected same game multis for each fixture.

Set your alarm clocks nice and early. 

Champions League group stage fixtures are here for another week with a host of European heavyweights fighting it out to qualify for the knockout phase. 

The BetDeluxe round-ball experts provide us with all the best bets and same game multis you need to be on. 

PSG vs. Club Brugge

december 8th 4:45am

PSG will surely have the bitter taste of revenge on their lips when they face Club Brugge at Parc De Princes.

With a spot in the qualifying stages already locked away, the French champion will be looking to hit the Round of 16 with winning form after a 2-1 loss to Manchester City. 

But Club Brugge will prove a tough nut to crack with a Europa League place on the line if it can somehow pinch a result with Manchester City needing to defeat RB Leipzig. 

Brugge already has a 1-1 draw against PSG to its name, but with so much on the line, it would be a far-fetched idea to think the Brugge defence can somehow stop the likes of Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappe. 

Prediction: PSG 3 Club Brugge 0

Suggested Bets: L. Messi first goal at $3.3

RB Leipzig vs. Manchester City

december 8th 4:45am

Manchester City heads over to Germany for its final group match when it faces RB Leipzig.

The Citizens have already booked their spot in the Round of 16 thanks to a 2-1 win over PSG at the Eithad in their most recent Champions League fixture, while RB Leipzig kept its hopes of entering the Europa League alive with a 5-0 battering of Club Brugge. 

Pep Guardiola will likely opt to rest a host of star players in order to deal with the fixture squeeze City will face in the coming weeks leading into Christmas. 

Keep an eye on team selection closer to kick-off time. 

Should City field a weakened squad, RB Leipzig might just be the play at the head to head.  

Prediction: RB Leipzig 2 Manchester City 1

Suggested Bets: RB Leipzig head to head at $3.5

ac milan vs liverpool

december 8th 7:00am

You would be searching high and wide to find a more important game in the last few years for AC Milan when it faces long-time Champions League rival Liverpool at San Siro. 

The equation for the Rossoneri is simple; beat Liverpool and hope Atletico defeat Porto or at least hold on for a draw. 

Milan will be without their sturdy centre back Simone Kjaer after his worst fears were confirmed after suffering ligament damage that will keep him out for at least six months. 

Liverpool already boasts a 3-2 win over Milan back at Anfield, but the Rossoneri were without star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic. 

His presence will now be felt in front of the home crowd in Milan and with so much on the line, we expect Milan to win this game. 

Prediction: AC Milan 2 Liverpool 0

Suggested Bets: AC Milan head to head at $2

fc porto vs. atletico madrid

december 8th 7:00am

It is do or die for both FC Porto and Atletico Madrid when the face off in their last game of group stage matches. 

Both teams must win in order to give themselves a chance of qualifying for the Round of 16. 

They will also be praying for an AC Milan loss against Liverpool. 

After a 0-0 parity in the reverse fixture earlier in the group stage, FC Porto now holds the ace up its sleeve with the home-ground advantage held in Portugal. 

After what we saw with Atletico coughing up a loss to AC Milan in Spain, FC Porto are the way to go here. 

Prediction: FC Porto 1 Atletico Madrid 0

Suggested Bets: FC Porto head to head at $2.65

borussia dortmund vs. besiktas

december 8th 7:00am

After looking poised for a spot in the Round of 16 early in the group stage, Borussia Dortmund now faces a disappointing exit of the Champions League when it goes head to head with Besiktas.

Dortmund has lost its three Champions League fixtures, but is a heavy favourite to take out this game at home against a Besiktas team which has failed to take a point through five games. 

The motivation for Dortmund to win in front of its home fans will be enormous as will the momentum of hitting the Europa League with winning form.

Besiktas has nothing to play for but pride and the chance to find its first point of the group stage. 

Expect Erling Haaland to go beast mode and Dortmund to fire in multiple goals. 

Prediction: Borussia Dortmund 4 Besiktas 0

Suggested Bets: E. Haaland first goal at $2.25

ajax vs. sport lisbon

december 8th 7:00am

Group C winner Ajax plays its first dead rubber of the group stage against Sporting Lisbon.

The result will bear no impact on Ajax having already found its way into the knockout phase, but the story for Lisbon is the complete opposite. 

The Portuguese powerhouse will need to at least find its way to draw in order to lock in a spot in the Round of 16. 

With the top two settled in Group C, both teams can take a free run at this intriguing encounter, which should be a much closer affair than the one-sided first meeting back in September.

Thanks to an abundance of pace and trickery, either side is adept at making opponents pay in the final third, so an open game should end in a score draw.

Prediction: Ajax 2 Sporting Lisbon 2

Suggested Bets: Draw at $5

real madrid vs. inter

december 8th 7:00am

The winner of Group D will be decided when Real Madrid welcomes Inter Milan to Santiago Bernabau on Wednesday morning.

Real Madrid currently sits on top of the group with 12 points through its five fixtures, while Inter Milan sits on 10. 

Madrid will bring in the confidence of a 1-0 at the San Siro on match day one back on September 16  as well as some strong domestic form which sees them sit at the summit of La Liga. 

Inter, too, has performed in the Serie A over recent weeks and has climbed its way up the table. 

Los Blancos has shown it has made a full recovery from its shock loss to Sheriff only a few weeks ago and having already accounted for Inter in the group, it can repeat the dose again. 

Prediction: Real Madrid 2 Inter Milan 1

Suggested Bets: Real Madrid head to head at $2.15

shakhtar donetsk vs. sheriff tiraspol

december 8th 7:00am

Ukrainian champion Shakhtar Donetsk will be looking to salvage some sort of respect when it clashes with Sheriff Tiraspol.

It has been somewhat of a disappointing campaign for Roberto De Zerbi’s men who have only managed a single point and a single goal throughout the group stage. 

Sheriff has been the surprise packet of the tournament having scored a famous upset victory over Real Madrid earlier in the group. 

Both teams obviously cannot make the knockout stage, but it will be an intriguing clash nonetheless. 

Sheriff has shown more than enough to suggest it can win this final clash. 

Prediction: Shakhtar Donetsk 0 Sheriff Tiraspol 1

Suggested Bets: Sheriff Tiraspol head to head at $6
