Bookies.com looks at five top tips for the 2nd leg of the Champions League play-off ties
With the Champions League qualifiers nearly concluded, Bookies.com looks at five fabulous bets to take a chance on for the second legs.
Memphis Depay to score two or more
The Dutch attacker bagged a brace for Manchester United in their first leg 3-1 win over Club Brugge and to repeat or better this achievement, he is a best-priced 11/1 with bet365. He looked lively from the off against the Belgian outfit and can continue to make a nuisance of himself against a defence who struggled to contain him.
Hakan Calhanoglu anytime scorer
Having scored a well-struck free-kick for Bayer Leverkusen last time out in their 1-0 victory over Hannover, he is well priced at 5/2 with 888.com to follow up with another strike against Lazio. The Turkish attacker also takes penalties for the German outfit and is definitely one to watch in this second leg.
Islam Slimani anytime scorer
Sporting Lisbon’s Algerian attacker hit a late winner against CSKA Moscow in the first leg and is 13/5 with 888.com to dispatch again. The 27-year-old has been prolific for the Portuguese outfit throughout his career and knows where the goal is. Expect him to be a handful for the Russians’ rearguard.
Mikhail Gordejchuk first scorer
Bate Borisov’s midfielder struck the only goal in their 1-0 first leg win over Partizan Belgrade as he wreaked havoc all match and was deemed unlucky not to net more than once. He is a handsome 8/1 with BetVictor to break the deadlock once more.
Both Club Brugge & Manchester United to score
With the first leg finishing 3-1 and the Belgian outfit playing at home, expect them to come out of the blocks against Louis van Gaal’s side in front of what will be raucous support. Odds of both sides scoring are available at an odds-on price of 4/6 with PaddyPower in what is likely to be a lively match.
Bookies.com recommended bet: Calhanoglu anytime scorer @ 5/2 with 888.com
