Celtic stalemate underpins our whopping Champions League acca


You don’t make a name for yourself in the Champions League without springing some surprises and, with that school of thought in mind, Ladbrokes News are looking to emulate some of the competition’s small fry by landing an audacious triple-figure fivefold.

The below selections for Wednesday night’s play-off round action pays out at a whopping 180/1:

Basel to beat Maccabi Tel Aviv @ 1/2

The Swiss outfit provide the rock-solid foundations with which to build this accumulator on, thanks to superb current form and a formidable recent record over their opponents.

Basel played the Israeli outfit four times two seasons ago, first in the Champions League qualifiers then the Europa League round of 32, and lost none. What’s more, they won both of their home games.

Urs Fischer’s side have also won all eight of their competitive fixtures this term, scoring 22 goals in the process.

Celtic and Malmo to draw @ 11/4

Ronny Deila’s Bhoys may have made an unbeaten start to the season, but they stuttered past Azerbaijan’s FK Qarabag in the last round and now have an in-form Malmo to contest.

The Swedes have won three on the bounce heading to Scotland and have kept three clean sheets in their last four Champions League qualifiers.

Over 2.5 goals in Rapid Vienna v Shakhtar Donetsk @ 10/11

Of the five games scheduled in the competition on Wednesday night, it’s the battle at the Ernst-Happel-Stadion that will provide the most goals.

No game involving the Austrian outfit has contained less than three so far this term, while the Ukrainians have scored two or more in six of their eight outings to date.

Skenderbeu and Dinamo Zagreb to draw @ 12/5

The Croatian’s have reached this stage of the Champions League thanks to their ability to draw games.

Zagreb have played out stalemates in three of their four matches in the competition so far and have drawn six of their 10 outings all told in 2014/15.

Monaco to beat Valencia at 4/1

The Spaniards have endured a torrid pre-season, losing three of their last five friendlies and playing out goalless draws in the other two.

Monaco meanwhile are into competitive action and brushed aside Switzerland’s Young Boys in the last round before starting their Ligue 1 campaign unbeaten.
