MADRID, SPAIN - SEPTEMBER 09: Gareth Bale of Real Madrid CF heads the ball while being challenged by Sergio Postigo of Levante UD leaves the field after Real drew 1-1 in the La Liga match between Real Madrid and Levante at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu on September 9, 2017 in Madrid, Spain.

Real Madrid vs. APOEL Betting Tips 

Real Madrid will host APOEL Nicosia for their Champions League opener on Wednesday after a troubled start of their Primera Division campaign and two home draws now behind them (2-2 against Valencia and 1-1 against Levante). They’ll now be desperate for a convincing performance and a confidence booster, as we back them with Asian Handicap – Real to win -2.5 at 9/20 with BetVictor.

Los Blancos seem to have struggled without Cristiano Ronaldo but he will be available on the day, which will surely be felt although Lucas Vazquez and especially Marco Asensio have been shining bright. We now expect a deadly attacking line at work once again and we do feel we’re in for an exciting matchup at Santiago Bernabeu.

APOEL come into the match on the back of a comfortable win at Nea Salamis (1-4) but they’ve been far from their best recently, as they’ve suffered two losses (including a 1-2 Super Cup loss to Apollon) and one draw (0-0 at Slavia Praha in Champions League play-off) in their last five games. It’s thus hard seeing them do any better against reigning champions of Europe, even at this point.

Nonetheless, the visitors have been in a fine goalscoring form themselves too and we do feel they should make an impact as well. With that in mind, we’ll now stick our necks out for a high-scoring clash and back Over 4.5 goals FT at 11/10 with William Hill, which seems a lively shot with a rather one-sided contest expected on the day.

Real Madrid vs. APOEL Stats

The sides have met twice in the 2011/12 campaign, as APOEL reached quarter-finals but suffered a thrashing 8-2 aggregate loss, with a 0-3 away win for Los Blancos in late March and a 5-2 win at this ground in early April. We now expect a rather similar matchup and it’s easy to make a strong case for a home win here.  

We’ll go for an adventurous bet in the correct score market here as well, backing a 4-1 prediction as a lively longshot at 14/1 with bet365.

Recommended Bets:
