Familiar faces out to avoid shock slips in Champions League qualifying


It has only been a month since we watched Manchester City beat Inter Milan in Istanbul to complete a memorable treble.

But qualifying for the next Champions League started a fortnight ago and there are some intriguing first-round clashes tonight.

Shamrock Rovers have already made history as the first Irish team to reach the group stage of the Europa League.

Matching that feat in Europe’s top tier is one hell of an ask and they have a tricky opener against Icelandic side Breidablik.

Rovers aren’t in great form, having gone two games without a win, but still top the table in Ireland while Breidablik only sit third in their league.

So the Irish side look decent value at 31/40 (Betway) for a win at home while Breidablik are 19/5 shots (Ladbrokes).

Breidablik have been scoring pretty freely so over 2.5 goals stands a good chance and that’s 20/23 with Betfair.

Lincoln Red Imps have previous for springing shocks on home soil in Gibraltar, having famously defeated Celtic 1-0 in Brendan Rodgers’ first game in charge.

But they are 14/1 outsiders with Bet365 against a Qarabag side who have played group stage football in all three UEFA competitions.

The one thing that might work in the minnows’ favour is that the league has yet to start in Azerbaijan so Qarabag might be a bit rusty.

That makes me think most goals could come after that break, a bet that pays 7/6 with VBet.

Qarabag knocked out Ferencvaros last season and the Hungarians have come up short since reaching the group stage in 2020.

They begin this European campaign in the Faroes against Klaksvik and are hot favourites at a best 7/15 (VBet).

Ferencvaros are coming into this game cold as well but should have too much firepower for their hosts and I like over 2.5 away goals at 7/4 (Unibet).

Tuesday’s Football Bet of the Day sees Greg head to the Korean top flight, and there is one fixture in particular that appeals to him for goals and cards.
