BATE BORISOV - BARCELONA
BATE will try to give hard hard times to Barcelona after they won the 10th belarusian league beating Vitebsk on Saturday.
The motivations are high and Barcelona still can't count on the injured Messi, Iniesta and Rafinha.
BATE has a good home trend in Champions League home matches: 4 wins in 4 matches vs Dundalk, Videoton, Partizan Beograd and Roma.
Barcelona, thanks to an amazing Neymar, won 5-2 vs Rayo Vallecano and it is currently leading the spanish Liga.
Althought the absence of Messi and Iniesta, spanish team is much stronger than BATE and we expect the AWAY WIN.
OVER 2.5 (1.60 Matchbook)
AWAY WIN (1.35 Matchbook)
BAYER LEVERKUSEN - ROMA
Roma occupies the last position in the Group E after the defeat in Borisov (3-2) and the draw in Rome vs Barcelona (1-1)
Bayer has 3 points obtained vs BATE Borisov (4-1) and has a great home trend in european matches: 6 wins in the last 7 matches.
Roma hasn't won in Champions League for 7 matches in a row and in the last 6 away matches has only obtained draws and losses.
Although the stats are pro Bayer, we have a preference for the italian team which can take advantage of the pace of Gervinho and Salah and create troubles to german team defense with fast counterattacks.
ROMA DOUBLE CHANCE (1.90, Sporting Bet)
BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE (1.80, Sporting Bet)
ARSENAL - BAYERN MUNCHEN
Probably the big match of this Champions League round.
Arsenal is forced to make a good result after the losses in the first 2 appearances vs Dinamo Zagreb and Olympiakos.
Bayern, as expected, has collected 2 wins in 2 matches and has already scored 8 goals keeping the clean sheet in both occasion.
Arsenal occupies the second position in Premier League thanks to Sanchez, Ozil and Walcott who have been playing really good lately.
We choose ARSENAL DOUBLE CHANCE and OVER 2.5.
ARSENAL DOUBLE CHANCE (1.90, PaddyPower)
OVER 2.5 (1.55, PaddyPower)
DINAMO ZAGREB - OLYMPIAKOS
Dinamo Zagreb takes part to this Champions League edition adter beating Fola Esch, Molde and Skenderbeu and the results have been good after the first 2 rounds: 3 points collected
thanks to the great 2-1 wins over Arsenal.
Also Olympiakos has beaten Arsenal in England with an amazing 2-3 finding the first Olympiakos win in England of its history after 13 matches.
Dinamo Zagreb is leading the croatian league where is still unbeaten after 13 rounds, while Olympiakos has won the frist 7 matches in a row.
We have a preference for the greek team, although usually greek teams struggles when playing away. Olympiakos can count on skilled and experienced players such as Cambiasso, Kasami and Finnbogasson.
OLYMPIAKOS DOUBLE CHANCE (1.46, Betfair)
OVER 1.5 (1.28, Betfair)
