One of the most interesting groups of this year is group H, from which we will analyze the game between Lyon and Sevilla. It’s one of those groups where the team which was seeded last (Dinamo Zagreb) can quickly destroy all the plans with one or two surprising results, while the team which was seeded first (Juventus) isn’t as dominant as Real, Barcelona or Bayern.
Sevilla vs Lyon
This being said, the games between Lyon and Sevilla will be very important for the final standings of the group. The first episode will take place in Spain, where the local team will try to forget their less-than-perfect debut in La Liga.
The departure of legendary head coach Unai Emery to PSG has left quite a few marks on the team, which is still trying to find its balance.
They managed to gain a credible 0-0 draw against Juventus on day one, but will be targeting all the 3 points against Lyon in order to take a big option for 1st or 2nd place.
Meanwhile, Lyon will also try to forget their domestic inconsistencies and the absence of Lancazette and Valbuena. The French team won against Dinamo Zagreb on day 1 and know that a good result away from home against Sevilla can help them gain a strong lead in the group.
The task won’t be easy, especially due to the defensive weakness the team has shown in recent games. It is also worth mentioning that this is the first competitive game in history between the two sides.
Sevilla vs Lyon Betting Tips
There are not a lot of predictions available for this game, but one of them is a lack of goals. Under 2,5 or 3,5 goals (depending on your risk appetite) are great ideas, in a game where both teams will concentrate more on not losing that on winning.
That’s the only clear idea we have so far – we’re looking at two inconsistent teams for which an early exit from Europe would not be the end of the world. Of course, if you feel lucky, bet on a draw. It’s more than likely to happen.

Champions League Football Betting Tips And Predictions
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…
