High Press 10 September 26, 2019 1132 Reads

We’re less than a week away from the next round of 2019-20 UEFA Champions League group stage matches.

While the first matchday had us re-evaluating some teams (and oddsmakers overreacting to others), overall it’s mostly status quo. The teams who were 2019-20 UEFA Champions League title favorites barely moved.

Any more slip-ups though, particularly by Liverpool, Juventus, or Barcelona, and that may change. Here are a look at the next batch of group stage lines.

Odds & Ends

  • The lack of oddsmaker respect for Ajax at this point is almost comical. Of every single UCL fixture this coming matchday, they are the only one where FiveThirtyEight has them as a probability favorite to win and oddsmakers have them as an underdog. Ajax is the better team. Grab their long odds.
  • Monitor the Messi groin injury closely. If he doesn’t play, which is the most likely scenario at this point, Inter pulling out a draw or win (+510!!!) seems much more likely than the Catalans cruising to victory.
  • Red Bull Salzburg just put 6 past Genk. Liverpool lost away to Napoli. Should Erling Braut Haland and co. really be +900 at Anfield? Yes. Yes they should.
  • Has Chelsea shown anything at all this season that would give you confidence they can defeat Lille on the road? Chelsea’s youth makes them a minute-by-minute inconsistent rollercoaster. That +245 draw seems like a fair play.
