Competition: Champions League
Market: Real Madrid to beat Apoel Nicosia
Odds: 1/6 @ Bet365
The Champions League is back this week with all manner of interesting games to come. Despite domestic competitions being hotly contested across Europe, it is the Champions League that most teams want to win, with a place in footballing immortality awaiting the victor. One side that are really looking to become an immortal of the Champions League is Real Madrid, as they attempt to win the competition for the third season in a row, and they travel to play minnows Apoel Nicosia.
Apoel Nicosia have been struggling in their group, but when you are drawn with Madrid, Tottenham and Borussia Dortmund, it is always going to be a tough ride. To their credit, they have managed to secure two points from successive draws with Dortmund, which will give them all manner of confidence. Despite the fact that they are very likely to go out on Tuesday as they must win their last two games, they will see this season as a huge success, with their draw in Germany a particular high point.
For Real, this Champions League campaign has not gone to plan. A fast start with wins over Apoel and Dortmund was followed by a draw with Tottenham before the English side dismantled them at Wembley Stadium. With Spurs now three points clear at the top, Real simply must win if they are to have any chance of going through top. With this in mind, we are backing Real to win with odds of 1/6 from Bet365.
