57/1 Player Specials Accumulator
Borussia Dortmund vs Sporting
Tip: Joao Palhinha to be booked
Sporting face a difficult test in Germany this week and Joao Palhihna could have a tough night. The holding midfielder was been booked five times in his 10 games in all competitions this term.
He faces a dizzying Dortmund attack on Tuesday night and the Portugal international will have a tough time getting through that one without another caution. The midfielder has committed 2.1 fouls per game domestically and he made three in their loss to Ajax in the last Champions League game, so back him to be carded here.
PSG vs Man City
Tip: Rodri to be booked
Man City will likely call upon in a holding role in this difficult night in Paris but the Spaniard has already been cautioned twice this term. He picked up yellow cards helped City to wins at Leicester and against Arsenal, while another could be just around the corner.
Rodri made three fouls against Leipzig in their last Champions League game and we’re backing him to get into more trouble on Tuesday.
RB Leipzig vs Club Brugge
Tip: Christopher Nkunku 2+ shots on target
Leipzig had a tough start to their Champions League campaign, but Nkunku didn’t. The French forward scored a hat-trick in his side’s 6-3 defeat to Man City. That was the second time in his last three matches that Nkunku managed to score at least twice.
Club Brugge are a side that Leipzig need to beat in order to make the last 16 of this competition, so expect the Bundesliga side to go all out in this clash. This should be the easiest game of the group for Nkunku and co. so we’re backing him to work the goalkeeper at least twice.
Porto vs Liverpool
Tip: Mo Salah 2+ shots on target
Mo Salah is in fantastic form for Liverpool, scoring in each of his last five games for the Reds. He’s also scored in five of his last six Champions League games. Following that form, Salah to score anytime features in our Porto vs Liverpool predictions this week.
Salah’s great scoring record comes from his shot-happy approach. He’s averaged 4.2 shots per game in the Premier League this term, averaging 2.5 on target per match. With Liverpool in great scoring form we’re backing Salah to have at least two shots on target at Porto.
