Football Betting: Live On Setanta Wed 19:45 Braga’s clash with Seville is amongst the highlights in the remaining Champions League fixtures. Compare Champions League odds.
Sporting Braga saw off Celtic relatively comfortably in the pair’s Champions League tie but the Portuguese outfit are expected to struggle in their fourth round encounter with Seville. The Spanish side are 888Sport’s 2/5 favourites to make it to the lucrative group phase of the competition while Braga are Stan James’ 2/1 outsiders and although that looks about right in the context of 180 minutes of football; Fernando’s Couto’s charges, who finished second in Portugal last term, have been underestimated ahead of the first leg on their own patch.
Betfred quote Braga at 21/10 to register a win at home but that looks a touch risky and so backing them at 11/10 in Paddy Power’s ‘Draw No Bet’ market is worth considering as it provides punters with a little insurance against a not unlikely stalemate.
In Germany, Werder Bremen look a safe bet at 3/4 (Jaxx.com) to take a first leg advantage over to Genoa, as they entertain Sampdoria, Basel, at 4/9 with Victor Chandler, should get the better of FC Sheriff and Stan James post a tasty 10/11 against Red Bull Salzburg seeing off Hapoel Tel Aviv in the pair’s first leg clash in Austria.
Meanwhile, Anderlecht look huge at 9/5 with Ladbrokes to emerge victorious at Partizan Belgrade, where teenage sensation Romelu Lukaku can make an impact for the Belgians.
