Betting tips and previews of the remaining five Champions League Playoffs scheduled on Wednesday 24 August.

 

Copenhagen prevailed 1-0 in the 1st leg, confirming to be in a great moment of shape: 8 wins and 3 draws obtained from the eleven official matches till now.
Stale Solbakken's team adopts a compact 4-4-2 with a very balanced and accurate defensive phase.
APOEL Nicosia must pay attention: in case of Copenhagen goal, they would be forced to score at least three goals and that should be a bit too much considering the good form of the Danish side.
APOEL will presumably start slow then, avoiding to leave spaces to the opponents, who have no interest to raise the rhythm of the match.
Generally speaking we do not see a pleasant match here and we do not expect more than 2 goals.

 

Peter Bosz's experience as Ajax's coach (begun few weeks ago), is already at a crossroads: Ajax have recently collected disappointing results, especially in Eredivisie, where have drawn with Roda and lost vs Willem II, being now already 5 points below the 1st place after only 3 gameweeks.
Failing to get the access to the Group Stage would be a failure and after the 1-1 draw obtained in Amsterdam this hypothesis is not that remote.
Ajax has showed good offensive manouvers till now but struggle too much when defending (indeed 6 both teams to score occurred in the 6 official matches played).
Bosz will still rely on the goalie Cillessen who is ready to sign for Barcelona and probably will be on the pitch with particular psycological conditions.
Rostov obtained the 2nd place from the Russian Premier League 2015/16 and their wish to amaze is high.
On the road matches in Russia are never easy. We choose BTTS considering mainly Ajax tendency, but better to avoid to pick the winner as this match is a tough one.

 

The last match with Dinamo's jersey on for Mrko Rog, ready to sign for Napoli (13,5 mln + bonuses).
In the current transfermarket, Dinamo Zagreb has lost also Marko Pjaca transferred to Juventus lowering a lot the average skills of the squad.
The 1st leg in Croatia was a 1-1 draw and now Red Bull Salzurg appear to be favourite.
Last Salzburg's appearance in Champions League is dated back on the season 1994/95.
Recently Austrian side have improved their defensive organization and indeed, 6 UNDER 2.5 occurred in the last 7 matches and that is really a news since Salzburg have always had a clear tendency to score and concede goals easily in the past seasons.

 

Not a lot to say about Manchester City-Steaua Bucarest and Borussia Monchengladbach-Young Boys Bern after the 1st legs ended 0-5 and 1-3.

Home teams are basically already in the UCL Group Stage while opponents are much weaker and mainly unmotivated to think about recovering the wide disadvantage.
