Two goals, two wins, 6 points. Guess the European team that can boast with this record. If you’ve guessed Atletico Madrid, you’re in luck.
The team that wants to put an end to their Champions League record is FC Rostov, a Russian team at their first participation.
Will they be able to pose any threat to Simeone’s team, or will they just be another stop along the way towards a new final?
Rostov vs Atletico Madrid – 19/10/2016
Betting Odds: Rostov 13.00 or 12/1 Draw 5.00 or 4/1 Atletico 1.33 or 1/3
Rostov seems like the typical Champions League debutant so far. They had a great last season in Russia but given the fact that they’re not a big club domestically, they haven’t managed to build a very large, competitive squad.
Thus, they are currently struggling with fixture congestion and fatigue, which leads to inconsistencies and poor performances.
Since they can’t pick up wins against opponents like Krasnodar, Terek or PSV, it’s very hard to believe that they’ll manage an upset against Atletico.
That being said, the biggest enemy Simeone’s team will have is the Russian cold. Apart from that, they’re not much to be said – Atletico is coming after a 7-1 demolition of Granada, not losing a single game all season.
They now come after 4 straight wins, including one over Bayern. They’ve shown that they are not 100% dependent on Griezmann, and other players are keen to step up as well.
Rostov vs Atletico Madrid Betting Tips
All things considered, it’s clear that we back Atletico to win this game. We’d even point towards a handicap win (Atletico -1), but given the Russian weather, we won’t go so far.
Atletico to score is the easier bet, which will almost certainly happen. If you are looking for something different, we fancy seeing quite a few yellow cards as well.
Both teams play strong, physical football – so warnings are inevitable. Finally, our goalscorer of choice is none other than Carrasco – his current form is nothing short of great.
AH 1st Half – Atletico Madrid (-0.5): 1.80 or 4/5 with ComeOn
Goalscorer – Yannick Carrasco Anytime: 3.20 or 11/5 with ComeOn

Champions League Football Predictions And Betting Tips
Porto – Leicester is one of the most interesting games of this week’s Champions League, for a wide variety of reasons, almost none of which relate to the English Champions. Leicester have qualified and are doing badly in their domestic league, which opens the door to Porto to do what’s required of them and qualify from the group as well – but will they be able to capitalize? Porto vs Leicester City – 07/12/2016 Betting Odds FT Result: Porto 1.35 or 7/20 Draw 5.25 or 17/4 Leicester City 11.00 or 10/1 Total Goals Over/Under 2.5: Over 1.85 or 17/20 Under 1.95 or 19/20 Both Teams To Score: Yes 2.25 or 5/4 No 1.57 or 4/7 Porto can qualify in only…
Although Leverkusen and Monaco are already qualified, Group E still gives us an interesting clash: Tottenham vs CSKA Moscow. The two teams haven’t been up to their normal standards of quality in the CL so far, but surely want to play European soccer – even if it is in the Europa League. Tottenham have a slight advantage, but will it prove to be enough? Tottenham vs CSKA Mosow – 07/12/2016 Betting Odds FT Result: Tottenham 1.53 or 8/15 Draw 4.33 or 10/3 CSKA Moscow 7.00 or 6/1 Total Goals Over/Under 2.5: Over 1.80 or 4/5 Under 2.00 or 1/1 Both Teams To Score: Yes 1.95 or 19/20 No 1.80 or 4/5 Actually, the Spurs have a few advantages on their…
Group H is one of the interesting ones for this week. Although Juventus and Sevilla are more or less sure of their qualification places, they still need to figure out who will win the group. While Sevilla has a very hard game against Lyon, Juventus are hosting the weakest team of the group stage, Dinamo Zagreb. A win would ensure first place – can they get it? Juventus vs Dinamo Zagreb – 07/12/2016 Betting Odds FT Result: Juventus 1.12 or 1/8 Draw 10.00 or 9/1 Dinamo 26.00 or 25/1 Total Goals Over/Under 2.5: Over 1.44 or 4/9 Under 2.70 or 17/10 Both Teams To Score: Yes 2.62 or 13/8 No 1.44 or 4/9 Our analysis tells us that Juventus should…
The last day of the Champions League group stage is one of the hardest to predict. Teams are either qualified and have no desire to field their best eleven, or are clinging to the last chance to play European football in spring as well. Sadly for the spectacle of the CL, Bayer Leverkusen and Monaco are already qualified before their direct game and are both sure of their positions in the group. Bayer vs Monaco – 07/12/2016 Betting Odds FT Result: Bayer 1.80 or 4/5 Draw 3.80 or 14/5 Monaco 4.75 or 15/4 Total Goals Over/Under 2.5: Over 1.75 or 3/4 Under 2.05 or 21/20 Both Teams To Score: Yes 1.70 or 7/10 No 2.05 or 21/20 Monaco is one…
Group F of the Champions League features some very interesting games this week. We can see a clash between Dortmund and Real Madrid, which will decide the leader of the group, and a game for 3rd place, between Sporting Lisbon and Legia Warsaw – which is much harder to predict that it looks on paper. Legia Warsaw vs Sporting Lisbon – 07/12/2016 Betting Odds FT Result: Legia 4.60 or 18/5 Draw 3.90 or 29/10 Sporting 1.80 or 4/5 Total Goals Over/Under 2.5: Over 1.65 or 13/20 Under 2.20 or 6/5 Both Teams To Score: Yes 1.61 or 8/13 No 2.20 or 6/5 We’re saying it’s hard to predict because Legia has shown they are capable of playing good football, especially…
