CHAMPIONS LEAGUE qualification continues on Tuesday night. Here Ross Casey (@RossCasey24) picks out his favourite fancies from the coupon.
PAOK v Basel | Tuesday 24th July 2018, 18:30
PAOK home matches tend to be high-scoring games with Over 2.5 Goals yielding a profit in nine of the Greek outfits last 10 as hosts. That will be music to ears of many punters backing the Salonika side as Basel have been in terrible form.
The Swiss outfit had lost three friendlies on the spin, while conceding 11 goals in the process, before losing to St Gallen in their season opener. However, it isn’t all bad news for them as going forward they remain a threat.
Both Teams To Score has landed in four of Basel’s last five matches and I beleive that will be the case again on Tuesday night, seeing as PAOK have shipped at least once in each of their six warm-up fixtures.
So my selection for PAOK v Basel is Both Teams To Score at evens (Betfair) thanks to both sides looking susceptible at the back heading into this Champions League fixture.
Dinamo Zagreb v Hapoel Beer Sheva | Tuesday 24th July 2018, 19:oo
Hapoel Beer Sheva won their last round tie 7-2 on aggregate, but they have a horrible record when playing away from home in these later qualifying matches.
The Israeli champions conceded a total of eight goals against Celtic and Ludogorets on their travels in their past two seasons, and despite Dinamo Zagreb not starting their season yet, you have to fancy the Croatians here.
Whilst you can’t read too much into friendlies, the hosts are unbeaten in nine matches and have kept six clean sheets in their last seven matches at home.
I recommend backing a Dinamo Zagreb win here with 11/10 available from BetVictor.
