Champions league returns this week and whilst I’m always keen to see how sides start before fully committing I’ve found two bets that I need to share. Odds aren’t great but I’m fairly confident hence the stakes.

Champions League – Tuesday 8pm
Monaco vs Atletico Madrid
Bet: Atletico -0, -0.5 asian handicap
Odds & Bookie: 1.63 BetVictor
Stake: 1.5 units

Atletico one of my best bets to win the champions league. Have improved the squad and they now have there most expensive ever squad. I think we will see them prioritise the CL over La Liga.

Lost just 4 CL in last 20 in 90 mins and those have been to Bayern x2 , Chelsea and Real Madrid, simply Monaco aren’t in that bracket of quality opposition.

Monaco lost a number of key players over the summer and have started the season poorly with defeats against Bordeaux and a draw at home to Lille.

Atletico will happily repel any pressure from Monaco and hit them with a set piece or goal with a counter attack.

One thing for sure they will not be intimidated by playing at Monaco!

Champions League – Tuesday 8pm
Liverpool vs PSG
Bet: Over 2.5 goals & BTS
Odds & Bookie: 1.67 Skybet
Stake: 1.5 units

Two sides that have some of the best attacking players on the planet. Salah, Frimino, Mane vs Neymar, Cavani and Mbappe, Draxler & Di Maria.

However neither side fill me with confidence at the back. Liverpool’s full backs are inexperienced as is Gomez. Lovern if he plays has a huge mistake in him.

PSG also have issues defensively and I’m not convinced they have the mental discipline and commitment for these top European games.

I just can’t see either defence keeping a CS. Liverpool conceded 6 in the CL semi final last season.

We know Klopp will set up to attack and win the game and this will leave space for the PSG attacking players to exploit.

I actually think Liverpool might win the group.
