thumbnail Hello,

Having picked out another winning accumulator at the weekend, Al Hain-Cole turns his attention to Wednesday's Champions League games, backing a sure-fire treble worth over 3/1

Champions League Treble
Dynamo Kiev
VS
Dinamo Zagreb
Kick-off: 19:45GMT
Tip: Dynamo Kiev to win at 4/9 (1.44) with Bet365

The most successful clubs in Ukraine and Croatia have struggled to impose themselves on European competition, and if either of them are to achieve anything in this season's Champions League then they will have to pick up points against each other.

Dynamo Kiev certainly seem the most likely, thanks largely to their opponents' dire recent record. Zagreb have lost nine and won none of their last 10 matches in this competition, conceding 19 goals in their last four alone.

Ante Cacic's visitors did not garner a single point from their six group games last season, and shot blanks at home to Porto last time out.

Although the hosts' record at this level is not much better recently, home advantage should play a massive role in this fixture. The Bilo-Syni are a force of nature at the Olimpiyskiy Stadium, where they have lost only nine of their last 108 matches in all competitions.

In what is looking like a fight for third place and Europa League qualification, expect Dynamo Kiev to strike the first blow here, at odds of 4/9 (1.44) with Bet365.

Anderlecht
VS
Malaga
Kick off: 19:45GMT
Tip: Malaga to win at 13/10 (2.30) with Bet365

While Malaga collected their first Champions League victory in impressive style at the first time of asking, Anderlecht have only won once in 20 games in this competition, and are without a home win in their last nine.

The Belgians do not tend to do well against Spanish opposition, having lost six of their nine encounters against Iberian sides, so should be very wary of Manuel Pellegrini's in-form outfit.

Malaga are yet to lose this season, and their impressive European record bodes well for them continuing in that vein on Wednesday.

Manuel Pellegrini's side have only ever lost once in 19 continental ties, and have conceded a mere seven goals.

Having racked up a 4-0 scoreline in their last league game, the Spaniards should be in a confident mood going into this match, and are a good bet to win here at odds of 13/10 (2.30).

Schalke 04
VS
Montpellier
Kick-off: 19:45GMT
Schalke to win at 57/100 (1.575) with Bet365

A serious case of second season syndrome seems to have broken out in the south of France, where Montpellier are looking like a pale imitation of the side that saw off moneybags PSG to win Ligue 1 last season.

Rene Girard's men have won just two of their opening seven league fixtures this term, as they struggle to cope with the loss of last season's leading marksman, Olivier Giroud.

Without him they will be hard-pressed to break down a Schalke side that have kept seven clean sheets in their last 12 European group stage matches, conceding just five.

Huub Steven's side have won 14 and lost just four of their last 24 European matches, with the win in a traditionally difficult away tie at Olympiakos particularly impressive last time out.

Unlike Montpellier, Schalke still have a goal-scoring ace up their sleeve in Klaas-Jan Huntelaar, and last season's 29-goal striker should help the hosts to victory this evening, at odds of 4/7 (1.57).
