KING of the cards Gavin Murphy (@GamePlanGavin) tackles Wednesday’s Champions League with a bet from Atletico Madrid and Galatasaray’s duel.
Atletico Madrid v Galatasaray | Wednesday 19.45 | BT Sport Extra
Triumphant when the teams met on Champions League Matchday 1, Atletico Madrid host Galatasaray requiring only a draw to reach the knockout stage.
While a point will suffice for the hosts, victory is essential for the Turks to stand any chance of progression.
The Spaniards started their campaign off successfully thanks to Antoine Griezmann’s double in a 2-0 win in Turkey in September.
Clearly there’s plenty at stake in this return encounter and Italy’s top referee, Nicola Rizzoli, gets the whistle for it. He was in fine form at the weekend, sending off two players as Genoa visited Sassuolo.
Over 55 bookings points is widely available at odds-against. However, with tensions high under the lights at the Vicente Calderon, I am taking a more cautious approach by backing Over 45 bookings points at 8/13 with William Hill.
If you’re new to Bookings Points – a yellow card earns 10 points and a red card earns 25 points. If a player receives two yellow cards and is consequently shown a red card, he receives a total of 35 booking points.
