Tuesday’s Champions League treble tip
Monaco vs Shakhtar Donetsk
Both Teams To Score at 4/5 – ⭐⭐⭐
There have been goals at both ends in four of Shakhtar’s six games so far this term and in both of Monaco’s home games. The Ukrainian side are yet to draw a blank this season, while Monaco have scored in each of their last seven competitive home games.
Sheriff Tiraspol vs Dinamo Zagreb
Dinamo Zagreb to win at 17/20 – ⭐⭐
Sheriff Tiraspol rode their luck at times in the previous qualifying round against Red Star Belgrade and Dinamo should have the quality to come through over two legs.
The Zagreb club have won all four of their away games this season, scoring eight goals without reply in the process, and going back to last season they are unbeaten in their last nine competitive away fixtures (W7, D2).
Salzburg vs Brondby
Salzburg to win to nil at 10/11 – ⭐⭐
Salzburg have won all five of their games across all competitions since the season started and have also picked up notable friendly victories against Barcelona and Atletico Madrid, with the two Spanish giants naming strong teams for those matches.
In contrast, Danish champions Brondby have endured a tough start to the campaign and are winless after five games (D3, L2).
Salzburg have managed clean sheets in each of their last two games and can keep another shut-out against Brondby on Tuesday
