With the Champions League once again stealing centre stage in midweek, Wednesday promises a string of heavyweight affairs from across the continent.
Likewise, with another stacked Championship schedule throughout Wednesday night, we have found a pair of eye-catching betting markets that are worth taking note of.
19:45 Sheffield Wednesday vs Leicester
While Leicester might have come under a huge amount of scrutiny last season as they shockingly lost their Premier League status, the Foxes are cruising their way towards an immediate top-flight return. Continuing on what has been a record-breaking romp since opening up the 2023/24 campaign and holding a commanding 10-point buffer from slipping out of the automatic promotion places, Enzo Maresca’s side will be confident of making another statement here.
Marking their return from November’s international break with a 2-0 victory at home against Watford, the former Manchester City coach should find the mood in his camp at a red-hot high.
Relishing a trip to Hillsborough on Wednesday night, Leicester will certainly be calling on their iconic attacking talisman to spearhead their charge in midweek.
Watching Jamie Vardy come off the bench against Watford on Saturday afternoon and bag a stellar second-half brace, the ex-England international has already recorded six Championship goals this season.
On the flip side, in the midst of what has been a public crisis and dealing with a string of issues both on and off the pitch, Sheffield Wednesday are tipped as a landslide relegation contender this year.
Sat rock-bottom of the table and coming off the back of a 2-1 loss away at a struggling Birmingham, the midweek hosts have collected just a single Championship victory since opening up the 2023/24 campaign.
Gaining a reputation for their woeful defensive struggles and already shipping 29 second-tier goals this season, Vardy and Co will be confident of making another statement here.

20:00 Bayern Munich vs FC Copenhagen
Making more Bundesliga history last season as they got their hands on an 11th straight domestic crown, Bayern Munich certainly have their sights set on mounting a genuine European charge this time around. Flying out of the traps and continuing to shine under Thomas Tuchel, the German heavyweights have breezed their way to a Champions League knockout stage ticket.
Hardly having to get out of third gear and collecting 12 points from their four Group A showdowns, the former Chelsea boss finds his squad tipped as a genuine European contender this year.
Winning each of their four Champions League appearances by an aggregate score of 11-6, Bayern are certainly firing on all cylinders.
With the red-hot Harry Kane continuing to break a string of records since completing his blockbuster £100million move from Tottenham, Tuchel’s men have also won nine of their last 10 contests across all competitions – a run that stems all the way back to September 30th.
While Copenhagen might open Wednesday’s trip to the Allianz sat in pole position to punch a famous knockout stage ticket, the Danish icons will be more aware that they face a monumental challenge in midweek.
Failing to pick up any kind of momentum over the weekend as they marked their return from November’s international break with a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Viborg, Jacob Neestrup’s side have also recorded just one win from their previous four showdowns on the road.
Hit with a 2-1 defeat when they welcomed Bayern Munich to the Parken Stadium for their reverse Group A battle on October 3rd, we are expecting a similar outcome here.
