Champions League Betting Odds - End of Group Stage 2016 Tips

With just one UEFA Champions League group game left, there’s still plenty to play for in Europe’s elite competition.

Arsenal and Leicester City may be safely through to the last 16, but there’s work to do for Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City, who welcome Celtic to the Etihad Stadium on Tuesday.

We’ve got five mouth-watering Champions League matches to preview, including Real Madrid’s home game with Borussia Dortmund, and the huge one from the Allianz Arena, as Carlo Ancelotti’s Bayern Munich and Diego Simeone’s Atletico Madrid go head-to-head.

Take a look at our live odds comparison, tips, analysis and predictions on the biggest Champions League fixtures taking place next week.

Barcelona v Borussia Monchengladbach

With Luis Enrique’s Barcelona safely through as Group C winners, there’s still a slim chance Andre Schubert’s Borussia Monchengladbach will be joining them. However, the German outfit need to beat Barca at the Camp Nou, and hope Celtic can do them a favour in Manchester.

Despite a slip up at the Etihad Stadium, the five-time European champions have been pretty faultless in this year’s group stage. As you would expect, Enrique’s men are the strong 1/3 favourites with Betfred to seal another win on Tuesday. On our live odds comparison, the draw is available at 5/1 (Bet365), whilst you can get an away win at the huge betting odds of 10/1 with Betfred.

Unfortunately for Schubert’s men, we predict they will be leaving Catalonia empty handed. At 1/3, we feel you are better off backing the home team to win by a margin on Tuesday. Therefore, we like the look of Coral’s 4/5 for Barcelona to win -1.

Basel v Arsenal

Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal are another side safely through to the knockout stages. However, unlike Barcelona, the Gunners still have work to do if they want to beat Paris Saint-Germain to top spot in Group A.

Both Arsenal and PSG are level on 11 points, but with the French outfit at home to Ludogorets Razgrad in their final CL game, the Gunners are more than likely going to need a victory in Switzerland to have even a chance of finishing top of the group.

They head to St Jakob-Park as the 11/8 favourites with William Hill. The best betting odds you can get on a home win are 11/5 (Betfred). Meanwhile, looking at our live odds, the draw is available at 5/2 with Sportingbet, and we’re predicting the draw to be your best choice of bet in this one.

Bayern Munich v Atletico Madrid

One of the standout fixtures in the final round of group games is without doubt the blockbuster affair between Carlo Ancelotti’s Bayern Munich and Diego Simeone’s Atletico Madrid, which takes place at the Allianz Arena on Tuesday.

Both sides may be safely through, but Atletico sit an incredible six points above the German outfit at the top of the Group D table. Simeone’s men have done an exceptional job in this competition over the last few seasons, and they look as though they are on a mission yet again. However, Bayern, who were disappointingly beaten at Rostov last time in Europe, will want to close the curtain on their group stage with a win for their home supporters on Tuesday.

For those of you who think the Spanish side will cause an upset, Betfred have them available at 5/1. Meanwhile, the draw is generously priced at 3/1 (William Hill). However, if you are predicting Bayern to claim the win, Sportingbet have the best betting odds, making them available at 7/10.

Despite being six behind their visitors and having to settle for second spot, we can see the Bavarians easing to victory at the Allianz. The best odds you can get on a home win -1 are 15/8 with Coral, and we believe that’s the standout bet in this clash.

Manchester City v Celtic

Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City welcome Brendan Rodgers’ Celtic to the Etihad Stadium on Tuesday. A point would be enough to see City through to the last 16, but they will no doubt be going all out for the win against the Hoops.

When these two met in Glasgow in the reverse fixture, the pair played out an entertaining 3-3 draw. Although the same outcome will be enough for the Citizens on Tuesday, we can see them beating Celtic this time around. According to our live odds comparison, the home side are as short as 3/10 with Betfair to claim the win.

If you are backing an upset, the best odds you can get on an away triumph are 19/2 (Sportingbet), whilst the draw is available at 5/1 with the same bookie.

However, unfortunately for the Scottish giants, we can’t envision anything other than a comfortable City win unfolding at the Etihad. Our betting tip in this one is for the Premier League side to win -1 in Manchester, which you can get at 11/13 with Ladbrokes.

Real Madrid v Borussia Dortmund

Last up is the mouth-watering clash from the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium, as Zinedine Zidane’s Real Madrid host Thomas Tuchel’s Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday evening.

These two European giants are already in the last 16, but with Dortmund first on 13 points, and Real just two points behind, who will claim top spot in this fascinating group?

Of course, La Liga leaders Real Madrid will be the favourites (5/6 at Betway), with Tuchel’s troops available at 16/5 with Betfair. The draw, however, is the very tempting price of 31/10 (Unibet).

Dortmund may not be at their scintillating best domestically at present, but they are a different animal in Europe. BVB, who beat Legia Warsaw 8-4 last time out in the Champions League, will back themselves to win in the Spanish capital – and at 3/1, we feel they are worth having a punt on.
