Besiktas v Borussia Dortmund Group C Matchday 1

Looking at the last match between those two teams, we have to open the dusty history books. We go back to 1989 where the only two matches so far in the European Cup Winners’ Cup were played. Even if this is no longer relevant, at that time the team around Dormund`s legend Andreas Möller managed to beat the Turkish team in both games.

Back to the relevant facts, it’s no secret that Dortmund enters this match as the absolute favorite. Although Besiktas won the previous season just ahead of Galatasaray and Fenerbahçe, we see the Bundesliga as a far more competitive league than the SüperLig.

Dortmund, as is typical in recent decades, is second favourite to win the Bundesliga after constant favourites and winners, Bayern Munich.

Besiktas, on the other hand, is ranked only in third place by the bookmakers in the national league behind Galatasaray and Fenerbahce, teams estimated as stronger by us. Besiktas, as well as Dortmund, have started with 2 out of 3 victories in the current season. However, the German team from the Ruhr region defeated much stronger opponents (Eintracht Frankfurt and Hoffenheim) than Besiktas needed to in their domestic league.

Our team of experts here at EagleBet expects many goals, whereby we trust Besiktas will contribute to that since Dortmund’s defence sometimes just seems too sloppy (6 goals conceded in the last 3 Bundesliga games). With the strong, in-form attack around Erling Haaland, we therefore bet on a final result of 1:3 with the below odds.

Exact result: “1:3” with odds of 12.00

Both teams score: “Yes” at 1.66 (NEO`s tip: In each of Dortmund’s last 6 games in the Champions League, both teams have scored)

EagleBet’s main tip: Handicap (1:0) at odds of 2.36

Sporting CP v Ajax Amsterdam Group C Matchday 1 Predictions

Similar to Dortmund v Besiktas, the last meetings between the two winners from last year’s Eredivisie and Primeira Liga also go way back, a full 33 years!

Despite being nominated in Pot 1 for the 19x Portuguese champions and Pot 3 for the 35x Dutch champions in this year’s Champions League group draw, most still see Ajax as clear favorite, despite playing away from home. Whoever bets €10 on Sporting gets a whole €28 back, compared to €24.60 you will get by betting on Ajax.

Our team of experts at EagleBet advise not to underestimate the reigning champions from Portugal. They seem to have a good run at home (2 games this season with 5-0 wins and 6 points) with Ajax suffering a late 1-1 draw against Twente Enschede in their single away game so far this season.

We expect a strong attack in the game of both sides on this Champions League evening with the points being shared in the end after a 2:2 end result.

Betting options EagleBet tips (odds provided by

Both teams score min. 1 goal at odds of 1.62

Exact result: “2:2” at odds of 11.50

EagleBets main tip: Over 3.5 goals at odds of 2.94
