iBet: Things could open up in the second half in Germany
Dortmund V Malaga, kick off 7.45pm, Sky Sports 1
Back the second half to produce the most goals at 11/10
Back Bayern Munich to win the competition at 7/2
There’s only one team left in the Champions League that’s still unbeaten and that’s not 7/4 favourites Barcelona or 9/4 second favourites Real Madrid but fourth favourites Borussia Dortmund, who are a best priced 9/1 to win the competition with Betfair. I actually think that the best team in the competition this year is Bayern Munich (7/2 with Paddy Power) but I fancy that their German rivals will continue their run and get the job done tonight. The question is, what is the best value bet? The first leg against Malaga ended in 0-0 stalemate, which is by no means a terrible result for the Spanish. Dortmund could have done with an away goal – and they certainly should have had at least one. Mario Gotze was through one on one with the keeper three times and Robert Lewandowski missed a sitter. They are normally a powerful force at home though and they are 4/9 to win in 90 minutes tonight and 4/11 to qualify. Indeed Dortmund have played four at home in the Champions League this season and won all four, including victories against Real Madrid, Shakhtar and Manchester City. Malaga however have the joint best defence away from home in La Liga and you can see them keeping it tight for a while and the second half producing the most goals. That outcome is odds against with BetVictor, and that could be the value.
Bristol Rovers are the form team of Division Two and they look too big at a stand-out 3.8/1 with Betfair to win at Bradford tonight. In League One Sheffield United seem to have lost the ability to score and their last eight games have produced just ten goals. They play Crawley Town tonight, who haven’t scored for 215 minutes. You can lay over 3.5 goals at just over 3/1 with Betfair.
