Holders Barcelona failed to win their Champions League opener, a late leveller denying them victory against AC Milan, however, Pep Guardiola’s charges should have no problem collecting maximum points in Belarus, as they tackle BATE Borisov.
Boylesports quote the Catalans giants at 1/6 to come out on top and Barca are just 2/5 at Stan James to prevail by at least two so there’s little value in backing an away win. Instead punters could focus on Cesc Fabregas who has made a fantastic start to life at the Camp Nou.
The ex-Arsenal midfielder has bagged five goals in eight competitive appearances for his new club and he’s 9/2 via bet365 to open the scoring in this one. Skybet meanwhile, post 5/4 against the 24-year-old 5/4 netting at any time.
Another man that could find the net is Porto attacker Hulk. The Brazilian was on target in his side’s clash with Shakhtar Donetsk and Boylesports make him 13/8 to score again as the Portuguese champions head to Zenit St Petersburg. Shaktar meanwhile, are 4/9 with Betfred to beat APOEL Nicosia and Paddy Power rate Luiz Adriano at 5/4 to get on the scoresheet in that one.
Cesc Fabregas, Hulk and Luiiz Adriano all to score – 10/1 (Boylesports)
