King of Stats: The Champions League numbers get crunched

| 22.10.2013

It’s matchday three in the Champions League and to help nudge punters in the right direction, the king is back to uncover those vital stats ahead of all the big games.

3 – All three of AC Milan’s Group H goals have arrived late in the day. Celtic were sunk by two in the last 10 minutes, while only a stoppage time Mario Balotelli penalty saw off Ajax. It’s 16/5 that Milan grab another between 75:00 – Full-Time as they host Barcelona at the San Siro.

4 – Consecutive away games without a win in Europe’s premier club competition for last season’s finalists Borussia Dortmund. The Germans travel to an Arsenal side in mesmerising form, where Dortmund are 2/1 to inflict a first loss on the Gunners in 13 games in all competitions.

54 – The amount of goals scored by Zenit striker Hulk in his time with Porto. As the Russians pay his old side a visit in Group G, the Brazilian striker is an 8/1 shot to score the first goal in Portugal.

8 – German club Schalke have won their opening two games in Group E as they entertain Chelsea and eight of their last 13 home games in the Champions League. Chelsea are 5/4 to grab the points and take a big step towards qualification.

7 – Goals in all competitions for Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero, including six in his last six. The Argentine is priced at 9/2 to grab the first goal of the game at CSKA Moscow in Group D.

5 – Away games since Ajax grabbed a win in the competition as they travel to Parkhead in Group H after two defeats in their opening two games, the same as Celtic. The Bhoys are 11/8 to take three vital points.

6 – Champions League games unbeaten at the Bernabeu for Real Madrid last season, including four wins, as they entertain a Juventus side who have drawn twice thus far. Juve are 10/3 to snatch a point in Madrid.

1 – Manchester United have only won one of their last six games against Spanish opposition at Old Trafford. The Red Devils are still the 1/2 favourites to beat Group A’s bottom side Real Sociedad though.
