The big story of Wednesday sees Didier Drogba facing his old club for the first time when Chelsea heads to Istanbul to face Galatasaray. Consider low goal outputs today.Bet on the Champions League now and take advantage of a sweet deal from William Hill, where you can land a $100 betting bonus.
It was only two seasons ago that Didier Drogba hoisted the Champions League trophy in Munich as Chelsea shocked the world by defeating heavily favoured Bayern Munich.
He now goes up against his old club and is listed at odds of 3.25 to score at any given point in the match. That goes up to 9.00 if the the Istanbul-based side takes the win as well in one of the headline offers. But it will be tough to penetrate a Chelsea side that has done very well defensively in the Champions League this season, having only conceded three goals in the competiton from its six games.
As a result of the Blues' stingy defence, William Hill has an intriguing special that sees a Chelsea win combined with a shutout -- which is presently offered at 3.00. With four shutouts already in the competition, this bet has a lot of appeal.
The outright victory for Chelsea in the 1x2 sector sees a payout of 2.10, while the double result (halftime/fulltime) comes in at 3.25. The Londoners went 2-1 during the group stage, with a 7-1 goal difference, and they haven't lost since early December.
I expect a low scoring affair, and the under 2.5 is only at 1.61 and not worth the risk. Instead, consider the both teams not to score selection which is a bit better at 1.80. Or for much more value, the Galatasaray not to score at 2.62.
A home win is available today at 3.60 over at the same British bookmaker, while the draw result is being issued at 3.20. The club is managed by Roberto Mancini and currently sits in second in the Turkish League standings.
For a correct scorer pick, take a look at either the Chelsea 1-0, 2-0, and 2-1 selections, which are offered right now at 7.00, 10.00, and 9.00, respectively. You don't have to just select one as hedging correct score bets is very popular betting.
