Champions League Tuesday Acca
We're taking two teams who have won this trophy 15 times between them plus a couple of others to complete this accumulator.
The Champions League proper returns on Tuesday night and we have a 4-team accumulator in a competition where upsets are more unusual than we’re used to seeing in the UK.
With this in mind back Real Madrid, Liverpool, Galatasaray and Bayer Leverkusen to all win at best combined odds of 19/4 with Bet365, including a 10% bonus. We’ll start with the bankers…
Real Madrid to win at home to Basel:
The holders, fresh from claiming the Decima (their 10th title), will brush aside a poor La Liga start to take three points here. They won all their home games in the CL last season and are unbeaten in their last 18 at the Bernabeu in this competition (W16 D2). Basel have never won in Spain, losing 5-0 to Valencia on their most recent trip in April.
The 5-time champions from Merseyside return to the competition after a five-year exile and they will have too much quality for the Bulgarian debutants. Ludogorets have only won 7 of 15 games across all competitions this season, mainly against low-level opponents. They had to draft in a goalkeeper for this clash after their first and second choice options were ruled out due to suspension and injury respectively.
The Turks reached the knock-out stages last term after home victories against Juventus and Copenhagen. They went out to Chelsea after a draw in Istanbul; in total they have only lost 3 of their last 18 European home games. The Belgians only secured 1 point from their six group fixtures in 2013-14 and they have finished bottom of their group seven times in a row.
On paper this is the gamble in the acca which gives it value. However, we should still be confident based on the form. New Monaco boss Leonardo Jardim hasn’t started well with 3 league defeats and a draw in his first 5 Ligue 1 outings. He is yet to win at home. In contrast, Leverkusen are unbeaten (W5 D1) and have scored 22 goals in just 6 matches. They also have all the experience to call on in this competition; the hosts haven’t been here since 2004-05.
