September 20th: Wednesday’s Champions League Double – 4/1 Special, Tips & Predictions

With the Champions League group stages stealing centre stage in midweek, Wednesday’s promises another stacked heavyweight schedule.

On that note, for those of you looking to chuck on a Wednesday flutter, we have found a pair of tips that are worth keeping an eye out for.

17:45 Galatasaray vs FC Copenhagen

Making real history last season as they got their hands on a first Super Lig crown since 2019, Galatasaray are in the midst of a major purple patch. Marking their return from September’s international break with an action-packed 4-2 victory at home against Samsunspor, Wednesday’s hosts certainly find the mood in their camp at a red-hot high.

Really breaking the bank this summer, Okan Buruk’s side now have their sights firmly set on mounting a genuine Champions League romp this season.

Heading into the fortnight interval with a routine 3-0 win away at Gaziantep, the Turkish giants have now won each of their previous six appearances across all competitions by an aggregate score of 15-5.

Only continuing to shine since returning to Rams Park on a permanent basis this summer, the red-hot Mauro Icardi will certainly have a key role to play on Wednesday night.

Once again finding the net at home against Samsunspor over the weekend, the former PSG hitman has bagged a stunning eight goals in just his previous six appearances.

As for Copenhagen, although the Lions might have edged their way past Rakow last month, the Danish giants are in the midst of a recent inconsistent rut.

Failing to pick up any momentum over the weekend as they eventually had to settle for a 2-2 stalemate away at Nordsjaelland, Jacob Neestrup’s men have mustered just a single win from their last four contests across all formats.

Along with signing off last season’s Champions League group stage struggle with a 3-0 defeat away at Sevilla, it should also be noted that Wednesday’s guests lost each of their three group stage showdowns on foreign soil by an aggregate score of 11-0.

20:00 Bayern Munich vs Manchester United

Eventually forced to settle for a 2-2 stalemate against Bayer Leverkusen on their return from the international break last weekend, Bayern Munich will be excited to turn their attention to Champions League duties on Wednesday night. Tipped as a standout contender to mount a genuine European charge this season, the German heavyweights will be smelling the chance to lay down an early marker here.

Still mustering 10 points from their opening four Bundesliga appearances this year, Thomas Tuchel’s have also gained a reputation for their free-scoring performances in the final third.

Notching 11 strikes in their first four domestic showdowns, the former Chelsea boss has also seen his new attacking talisman make an immediate impact since arriving at the Allianz this summer.

Securing a blockbuster £100million switch from Tottenham last month, Harry Kane has certainly hit the ground running in Munich.

Once again finding the net against Leverkusen a few days ago, the England skipper has notched four goals in as many Bundesliga appearances this year.

On the flip side, marking their return from September’s international break last weekend as they slumped to an infamous 3-1 loss at home against Brighton, Manchester United find themselves in the midst of a major crisis.

Along with heading into the fortnight interval with another 3-1 defeat at the hands of historic rivals Arsenal, Erik ten Hag does find some mounting pressure on his shoulders.

Losing three of their previous four Premier League showdowns, the Red Devils have also continued to show some rather glaring issues at the back.

Likewise, recording just a single domestic victory away from Old Trafford since way back on April 23rd, United will face another heavyweight challenge on Wednesday night.
