Champions League Betting Tips: Arsenal Vs Barcelona and Roma Vs Shakhtar
Posted on February 16, 2011 by John Trevors for Luckyroom.com
Another two great games are scheduled tonight for the first leg of the first knock out stage of champions League. Barcelona travels to London to face Arsenal while Roma hosts the game against Shakhtar Donetsk. The aforementioned games have all the ingredients for great games but – at the same time – they are difficult to predict. This is something which is reflected on the betting odds on various online sport betting rooms. Barcelona and Roma and offered as favorites at 1.83 and 2.00 respectively but no one can defy the ambition of Arsenal or Shakhtar which will aim to go as far as possible.
The Gunners will not have the services of Nasri who is doubtful due to injury while the same stands for Puyol for Barcelona side. Other than that, the two managers are not facing any other major problems. On the betting level the Over 2.5 goals is almost certain that is why it is offered low to 1.60 but the odds are significantly improving if we choose the Over 3.5 goals bet. Last time these two teams played at London the game ended a draw by 2-2.
On the other game which is scheduled tonight, Roma is facing a couple of injury problems as Borriello and Pizarro are unavailable while on the #1 position, Doni will replace Julio Sergio who is doubtful. Totti is ready to play although the chances to be in the starting line-up are limited. On the other hand, Shakhtar will not have the services of Fernadinho and Kucher who are out due to injury problems. Two are the facts that we should pay attention to this game. The first is that Roma concedes a lot (in fact they didn’t managed to secure a clean sheet on any Champions League game so far) and the second is that they have managed to secure home wins to the 5 last games they played for Champions League at home. Furthermore, Shakhtar was not able to win any of the last six visits on Italy while they conceded four or more goals on the last four times. However, the lack of Borriello might complicate the things a bit for Roma but the home win is offered at excellent price therefore our betting pick for this game is Roma to win.
