No special surprises started yesterday in the Champions League and today the rest of the 4 clubs are starting. A few betting opportunities, I've chosen two of them:
Shakhtar Donetsk welcomes neutral Harkov to Hoffenheim and wants to start with a win in a group that still includes Manchester City and Lyon. The Ukrainians have a lot of experience in Europe and a very strong home base - last year they beat both Manchester City and Napoli and Feyenoord at home. Hoffenheim is the 13 German team that competes in the Champions League, their European experience is minimal and they have already suffered a number of defeats in their two trips to Bundesliga. I see Shakhtar going right into the group.
Bayern is in charge of the AEK team and wants to confirm that it is the boss. He starts playing in perhaps the toughest home side, but has never lost to Benfica in 8 European fights and is not expected to do so tonight. The Portuguese are very happy with their qualification in the clubs where they will receive a respectable amount, but they do not seem capable of defeating the Kawachi Bavarians. Let us remember that last year they lost in the group's 6 matches. This year show several aggressive virtues, so we would prefer the victory of the Germans in combination with a great score.email> email@example.com
