Ajax vs Atalanta: Duvan Zapata to score First or last

Wednesday night sees Ajax face Atalanta at the Johan Cruijff Arena in a must-win game for the hosts if they are to progress to this season’s knockout stages.

Ajax have to win, otherwise, they’ll be playing in the Europa League in 2021, whilst Atalanta will advance into the round of 16 if they avoid defeat against the Dutch champions. The Black and Blues aren’t the typical defensively solid Italian side, as they play at a high-intensity, with Colombian striker Duvan Zapata being one of their key players to this.

The former Napoli man has five goal contributions in this season’s group stage so far, including a brace against Ajax in the return game at the Gewiss Stadium where the striker's brace cancelled out Ajax’s two-goal lead after the Italian side had fallen behind to first-half goals by Dusan Tadic and Lassina Traore.

If Atalanta are to get the point they need to advance, they will be relying on goals, as they have conceded eight goals in five group stage games.

Zapata to repeat his feat of scoring last against Ajax is priced at 4/1 - click here to claim this bet in your bet slip!

FC MIDTJYLLAND V LIVERPOOL: DIOGO JOTA TO SCORE A BRACE @ 10/1

Inter Milan vs Shakhtar Donetsk: Lukaku to score 2 or more

Inter Milan face a do or die match at the San Siro when they face Shakhtar Donetsk on Wednesday night, with the hosts needing to win the game themselves, whilst hoping for Real Madrid to beat Borussia Monchengladbach in Group B’s other fixture.

Last time these two sides met it was a 0-0 stalemate in Ukraine on matchday two, but, since then, Shakhtar completed the double on Real, having beaten the Spanish champions both home and away 2-0 and 3-2, respectively. At the same time, Inter beat Monchengladbach in a game where the Milan-based side had to win to stand any chance of progression.

Indeed, goals from Matteo Darmian and a brace from Romelu Lukaku sealed Inter’s win in Germany and the Belgian has been integral to their goals this season, with 12 goals in all competitions - four of them coming in the Champions League.

Lukaku to score his third brace of the competition is priced at 14/5 - to claim this bet in your bet slip, please click here!

AJAX VS ATALANTA: DUSAN TADIC TO SCORE FIRST @ 9/2

Real Madrid vs Borussia Monchengladbach: Real Madrid to win 1-0, 2-0 or 2-1

Similar to Inter, Real and Monchengladbach face off in a must-win match for the hosts at the Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano, whilst the visitors only have to get a point to qualify from Group B.

Los Blancos have never failed to qualify from the group stages of a European competition, but at present are running the serious risk of doing so, as they only have seven points from their first five group stage matches, of which, six of these came against Inter Milan.

Zinedine Zidane’s future at Real currently looks uncertain, with his side sitting six points behind league leaders Atletico Madrid, with their inter-city rivals having a game in hand on the champions.

Even though Real Madrid’s form has been very hit and miss this season, when push comes to shove, we still back Real Madrid to do the job and to beat Monchengladbach at home, which is why they are priced at 9/4 to do so by score lines of 1-0, 2-0 or 2-1.<br/>

MANCHESTER CITY VS MARSEILLE: FERRAN TORRES TO SCORE FIRST @ 4/1

Red Bull Salzburg vs Atletico Madrid: Dominik Szoboszlai and Joao Felix both to score

Red Bull Salzburg are looking to qualify for the Champions League Group Stages for the first time in their club’s history when they face Atletico at the Red Bull Arena.

The Spanish giants have left themselves in a perilous position in Group A, as La Liga leaders could only draw 1-1 at the Wanda Metropolitano against a weakened Bayern Munich team who has already qualified for the knockout stages. Atletico only sit two points above Salzburg and three ahead of Lokomotiv Moscow, with the latter travelling to the Allianz Arena to play Bayern on matchday six.

The last time these two sides met, it was Diego Simeone's men who came out on top as the 3-2 winners, where a Joao Felix brace rescued Atletico from 2-1 down, following a goal from Dominik Szoboszlai and an own goal by Felipe.

Felix and Szoboszlai have both had very impressive seasons, with the Portuguese scoring eight goals in 15 matches this season, whilst the young Hungarian midfielder has 17 goal contributions in 18 matches this campaign.

The price for both of these players to score in the same game again is 14/1 - click here to claim this bet in your bet slip!<br/>

RED BULL SALZBURG VS ATLETICO MADRID: LUIS SUAREZ TO SCORE AND ATLETICO TO WIN @ 12/5

Bayern Munich vs Lokomotiv Moscow: Thomas Muller to score first or last

This game has a slightly different feel to all those that have been discussed above as Bayern have already qualified, with visitors Lokomotiv needing an unlikely win at the Allianz Arena to qualify for the Europa League.

The Russian side are yet to win a game in this season’s competition, with their three points being earned via draws against Atletico both home and away, as well as their draw against Salzburg putting them on three points.

Meanwhile, the holders of the competition look as though they can do no wrong, as the treble winners have scored 13 points from a possible 15, having only dropped points away in Spain, having played a rotated side due to the their qualified status.

A key player who always features for Bayern regardless of what side is chosen is Thomas Muller. The 31-year-old has played in every game that Bayern have played so far this season, scoring six and assisting six in 12 league games, as well as scoring the equaliser last time out against Atletico.

Muller is currently priced at 7/2 to score first or last against Lokomotiv Moscow - click the link to claim.
