Champions League Accumulator: Chelsea and Man City make cut

| 20.10.2014

The Euro 2016 qualifying ‘Week of Football’ saw Ladbrokes roll out seven days of delightful international football accumulator picks and with the bookmaker keen to keep the ball rolling on the football betting fun, here’s a new Tuesday night offering covering the Champions League.

Featuring wins for big-spenders like Manchester City and PSG alongside Porto as well as home-bankers involving Barcelona and Chelsea, a price of 4/1 may not be big but it sure is clever.

Best of all, there is the added insurance offered through Ladbrokes’ latest offer which would see your original stake refunded as a free bet in the event that one of the five fails to win.*

Read on to find out why this is the midweek bet to back.

Man City to beat CSKA Moscow @ 4/7

After drawing at home to AS Roma, the Citizens will know nothing but a win will do at Stadium Khimki. Manuel Pellegrini’s side beat CSKA home and away in the group phase of the Champions League last term and with this game being played behind closed doors, a City win looks likely.

PSG to beat Apoel Nicosia @ 1/2

A 3-1 win away at Lens saw the Parisiens move up to second in Ligue 1 over the weekend and after seeing off group favourites Barcelona 3-2 last time out in Europe a win at the Parc des Princes against the group minnows should prove academic for the Dubai-backed hosts.

Barcelona  to beat Ajax @ 1/8

Barca’s formidable record at the Nou Camp makes a win for the visitors Ajax unlikely. The Catalans have scored 15 goals without reply over their five competitive home games this season and beat the Eredivisie champions 3-0 when they hosted the Dutch side in the groups last term.

Chelsea to beat Maribor @ 2/13

The Slovenians may have held Schalke to a draw in Gelsenkirchen last month but a trip to Stamford Bridge to face a Chelsea side on a five-game winning run is unlikely to yield many points. With the Blues unbeaten at home this term, backing a Pensioners win is advised.

Porto to beat Athletic Bilbao @ 7/10

Bilbao’s joy at reaching the Champions League group phase has been short-lived with the Spanish side picking up just one point from their first two games and outside of the relegation zone in La Liga on goal difference alone. A trip to Porto to face a side who won 6-0 last time out at home in Europe may compound the misery.
