UEFA Champions League Qualification July 12/13 – Preview and Prediction

The second leg of the UEFA Champions League’s first stage qualifiers takes place today and tomorrow. There are quite a few interesting games on the menu, and that’s why BetXchange is here. We will pick the most suitable for betting, present them to you and make the pick for the same, along with the betting odds.

Tuesday

Sheriff Tiraspol VS Zrinjski

We were surprised that Sheriff didn’t win in the opening leg, and we are even more shocked to see 0.70 on its triumph tonight. For us, this is the bingo of the round. The Moldovan champions are a much better team than Zrinjski, and they’ve shown that already in the previous international run, once they managed to beat Real Madrid on the road.

Sheriff kept most of its crew from the previous season, which is, by the way, pretty respectable. Our pick here is the home team to win, as we all know that the Moldovans are pretty rough at home. The odds are great, and the profit as well.

Pick: Sherif to win 7/10 at BetXchange

Sutjeska VS Ludogorec

The Bulgarian champs have been cracking Sutjeska’s defense for 70 minutes in game one, with the guests back then not even trying to attack or anything like that. In this event, the Montenegrin champs will have to be more open-minded and offensive, which will leave space for the
Ludogorec to display its full potential and quality.

We predict their easy win here, as they truly are a much better team, at least one level above Sutjeska. The odds aren’t fantastic but aren’t bad on the other hand as well.

Pick: Ludogrec Wins 2/5 at BetXchange

Klaksvik VS Bodo

Another high-scoring affair awaits us in the clash between the Faroe Islands and the Norwegian champions. The first game saw Bodo routinely winning, 3-0, and given the circumstances and the difference in quality, we believe that the Norwegians are going to win again and that the efficiency would be high.

Bodo is relentless when attacking, and we also believe that, unlike the opening leg, Klaksvik will be more willing to attack and score at least one goal.

Pick: Both teams to score and over 2.5 goals 10/11 at BetXchange

Wednesday

CFR Cluj VS Pyunik Yerevan

The Romanian crew has high ambitions for this year. They are a solid team who is regularly on the international stage in the last few years. Cluj’s management invests a lot, and beating Pyunik is an absolute must here. The Armenian champions aren’t competitive outside their country, and that is why we believe that CLuj’s win here shouldn’t be questioned. Furthermore, the hosts should win by at least a two-goal margin.

Pick: Cluj -1.5 10/11 at BetXchange

Ferencvaros VS Tobol

The first leg in Kazakhstan was pretty dull and without any excitement, but the guests went home happier. The Hungarian champions are now hosting Tobol in Budapest, and to be honest, nothing but their win here would be a major sensation.

Ferencvaros has a solid team, they played the UCL already and intend to repeat that this season. Meanwhile, Tobol isn’t for underestimating, but still, they can’t make a notable result outside Kazakhstan.

Pick: Ferencvaros wins 3/10 at BetXchange

Shakhtyor Soligorsk VS Maribor

We knew that the first leg would be rough in terms of efficiency, and we believe the second one will be too. Why? Well, simply, the stakes are high for these two sides, and they aren’t willing to risk anything, especially now, following a goalless first meeting.

That’s why we bet on under 2.5 goals here, with the odds being quite satisfying.

Pick: Under 2.5 goals 1/2 at BetXchange
