With the Champions League making its return this week, we are offered a stacked Tuesday schedule from across Europe. On that note, for those of you looking to stick on a Tuesday acca, we have searched far and wide to find you a couple of helpful tips that are worth keeping an eye out for in midweek.
Tuesday 24th November
BST 17:55 Rennes vs Chelsea
Starting with Tuesday’s guests, putting in another eye-catching display over the weekend, Chelsea managed to pick up a deserved 2-0 win away at Newcastle and the mood in their camp should be at a real high. Suddenly with many tipping them as a genuine title challenger this season and making a host of alterations since opening the 2020/2021 campaign in sluggish fashion, the Blues find themselves enjoying a five-match winning run across all competitions. Not tasting defeat since the end of September and enjoying by far their brightest run of the season so far, Chelsea also appear to be cruising towards the knockout stage of this year’s Champions League. Collecting seven points from their three matchups in Group E, the former England midfielder will be most impressed by his side’s eye-catching resurge at the back. Recording another clean sheet away at St. James’ Park on Saturday lunchtime, the Premier League outfit have remarkably conceded just a single goal across any format in any of their last seven straight appearances. Picking up a 3-0 win when they faced off against Rennes earlier in the month, Chelsea will be looking to capitalise on Rennes’ continued issues. Hit with a 1-0 loss against Bordeaux on home soil over the weekend, the French side have lost each of their last three contests on the bounce, failing to record a single goal in any of those defeats.
Tip: Chelsea win & Under five goals @ 11/10
20:00 Borussia Dortmund vs Club Brugge
Marking their return from November’s international break in what was thrilling fashion over the weekend, Borussia Dortmund will know that they have a real chance to book their spot in the knockout stage of this year’s Champions League in midweek. Opening up Tuesday’s contest in rural Germany holding a one-point buffer at the top of Group F, BVB have won five of their last six matchups across all formats and they have one attacking talisman enjoying yet another stunning free-scoring run. Really stealing the headlines in Dortmund’s dramatic 5-2 win away at Hertha Berlin over the weekend, striking sensation Erling Haaland bagged four goals on the road and has continued to set Europe alight this season. Now finding the net in each of his last six straight appearances on the bounce either side of the international break, the Norweigan marksman has bagged an astonishing 21 strikes for club and country so far this season. Lifting UEFA’s Golden Boy award last week, there is no doubt that Haaland and Dortmund will be looking to lay down a similar marker on Tuesday night. On the flip side, while Club Brugge might be enjoying themselves at the top of Belgium’s top-tier, they will undoubtedly be concerned by their most recent meeting against the German heavyweights. When they welcomed the midweek hosts to the Jan Breydelstadion earlier in the month, they were hit with a 3-0 drumming on home soil and we’re backing a similar outcome on Tuesday.
Tip: Borussia Dortmund win by 2+ goals & Erling Haaland to score anytime @ 1/1
20:00 Bournemouth vs Nottingham Forest
Starting with Tuesday’s hosts, managing to come from 2-0 down at half-time against Reading over the weekend, Bournemouth mounted a stunning comeback at the Vitality as they eventually left with a dramatic 4-2 win to show for their troubles. Finding a route back into the automatic spots and many across the Championship believing that the Cherries are a leading contender to get their Premier League status back at the first attempt, the South Coast outfit have managed to bounce back from that shock defeat against Sheffield Wednesday earlier in the month. Now managing to secure back-to-back second-tier victories, including a 3-1 romp away at Birmingham prior to the international break, Bournemouth will also be boosted by what has been a continued purple patch on home soil. Glad to see leading marksman Arnaut Danjuma extend on his tally against Reading over the weekend, Tuesday’s hosts are unbeaten in all six of their Championship contests at the Vitality so far this season, winning four of those appearances. Given Nottingham Forest’s continued issues on the road, there is no doubt that the Cherries will be looking to extend on their hometown success in midweek. Slumping back to losing ways with what was a worrying 2-0 defeat away at Barnsley, the Reds still find themselves looking over their shoulder at the drop zone after a hugely disappointing campaign. With just a single victory away from the City Ground since February, we’re backing a home win on Tuesday night.
Tip: Bournemouth win @ 3/4
