Six places in the last-16 of the competition will be confirmed tonight and our tipster is backing plenty of goals after the break in this accumulator

The Champions League group stage comes to a close this week and there are still eight places in the knockout stages up for grabs.

Six of those will be decided on Tuesday night and our tipster has taken a look at the six fixtures kicking off at 8pm UK time, picking out three bets to create a 10/1 (12.0) treble with bet365.

Lyon vs RB Leipzig Betting Tips

RB Leipzig have already secured their passage into the last-16 of the Champions League and travel to a Lyon side needing to better Zenit’s result at Benfica to join the Bundesliga outfit.

Fans, though, could be made to wait for goals and the value for this game comes in the form of RB Leipzig to score most of their goals in the second half at 13/10 (2.30).

Seven of Leipzig’s eight goals in the Champions League have come after the break, whilst six of the seven goals Lyon have conceded at home in all competitions this season have been in the second half.

Ajax vs Valencia Betting Tips

The winner of this clash will qualify for the knockout stages and, similar to the first match in the treble, punters would be wise to back goals in the second period.

bet365 make it 20/21 (1.95) that the second-half features the bulk of the action. Of the 17 goals in Ajax’s Champions League games this season, nine have come after the break including four in their 4-4 draw at Chelsea.

As well, seven of Valencia’s eight strikes in this competition have come in the second half whilst 15 of their 26 La Liga goals have also been scored after half-time.

Benfica vs Zenit Saint Petersburg Betting Tips

The other match in Group G sees eliminated Benfica looking to restore some pride and potentially reach the Europa League, but they could have their work cut out against Zenit.

Benfica have conceded twice or more in four of their five games so far, and the 6/4 (2.50) quote on Zenit to score over 1.5 goals could pay dividends once again.

The Russian outfit have scored in four of their five Champions League fixtures this term and average almost two goals per game in domestic football.
