Champions League Free Betting Tips (3rd matchday Wednesday)
The premier class picks up speed for the third time during the week before Europe’s elite clubs are given a three-week break for the first time. For the German clubs, it is about laying the foundation stone for reaching the knockout round, because both RB Leipzig and Borussia Dortmund are due to play groundbreaking games on Wednesday evening. The Red Bulls, who had to face last year’s finalist Paris St. Germain in the difficult Group H, clearly had the more difficult position. After the hefty 5-0 slap in Manchester, the Leipziger are about to take their next high-school diploma, which they must not fail under any circumstances.
Last year’s finalist Paris St. Germain visits Leipzig, Dortmund challenged the Belgian champions.
Unsuccessful revenge for the 3-0 semi-final defeat in August 2020 would be a mean disaster for Julian Nagelsmann’s team and probably equate with the early failure in the group stage. Borussia Dortmund will also be put to the test on the same evening as RBL. At the Belgian champions FC Club Bruges, BVB could take a giant step towards the round of 16 if they succeed. The Belgians are considered underdogs in Group F to advance but have already proven that with a win against Zenit St. Petersburg (2: 1) and a draw on the last matchday against Lazio (1: 1) they can be expected on the international stage. However, Schwarzgelb does not have to fear the Jupiler-Pro-Champion, because the Favre-Elf also knew how to convince with victories in the last three games.
RB Leipzig vs Paris St. Germain Free Betting Tips
After an almost perfect start to the season with six competitive game wins and one draw, RB Leipzig suffered their first defeats. Across all competitions, the red bulls first suffered their first bankruptcy in the Champions League, before Julian Nageslmann and his team also gave up on Saturday in the championship for the first time. Mainly responsible for the mini-crisis in Leipzig was the 5-0 package in Old Trafford against group opponents Manchester United. In the Bundesliga, the Saxons followed a 0: 1 defeat at Borussia Mönchengladbach, which at the same time ensured that RBL lost first place in the table. The Leipziger don’t have much time to deal with the two successive bankruptcies. The important CL duel with Paris St. Germain is scheduled for Wednesday evening in the Red Bull Arena at home. When they see Thomas Tuchel again, the people of Leipzig are already under a lot of pressure not to have to say goodbye to the premier class early.
After the Red Devils clearly lead the difficult Group H with successes against Paris (2: 1) and Leipzig (5: 0), and the Turkish champion Basaksehir FK only plays a minor role in the group, RBL and the French series champions are now fighting the last remaining space for the knockout phase. The French were able to clearly claim the last showdown in the Champions League 3-0. Unlike in the semi-finals in Lisbon, this time the Parisians have to do without their superstar Neymar, who has to take a break due to adductor problems. The use of Kilian Mbappe is also questionable, who sustained an ankle injury while playing in the league in Nantes (3-0 win for Paris) and is in danger of being cancelled for Wednesday’s match. In addition, the German PSG coach has to do without Julian Draxler, Mauro Icardi, Marco Verratti, Leandro Paredes and Juan Bernat.
For RB Leipzig there is a trend-setting game ahead that must not be lost under any circumstances. PSG’s away trip to Germany will be weakened without the injured superstar Neymar, and Thomas Tuchel will have to do without other key regulars. The bookmakers still see the French champions ahead, but we trust the Saxons more and claim that Julian Nagelsmann will succeed in taking revenge. We don’t want to put our hand in the fire for the Red Bulls, so this time we’re only risking a head-to-head bet.

Club Brugge vs Borussia Dortmund Free Betting Tips
Philippe Clement’s team started in Group F together with Zenit St. Petersburg as outsiders. At the group opener in Russia, Zenit and Bruges met at eye level, with the happier end for the Belgian champions. Youngster Charles De Ketelaere gave the Belgians three points after preparing the first goal for his team and scoring the winning goal to 2-1 in the third minute of stoppage time. In the second group game against Lazio Rome, Bruges benefited from the many failures of the Italians, who had to do without eight regular employees due to five Covid 19 failures and various injuries in the squad. The Serie A representative defied the Belgians and even managed to take an early lead 1-0. As a result, Club Bruges became increasingly overweight, which led to the deserved equalization shortly before the break. In the second round, however, the Belgians failed to improve because they did not know how to use their significant advantage.
While everything seems to be going according to plan for the Belgian Jupiler Pro champions in the premier class, the blue-blacks are currently only fourth in the championship and have been waiting for success for three games. At the weekend, Club Brugge played 2-2 against KV Mechelen but lost a 2-0 lead. At BVB, on the other hand, the world seems to be in order again and the weak 1: 3 opening defeat in the Champions League against Lazio has been forgotten. Schwarzgelb has rehabilitated mainly through the 3-0 win in the Revierderby against Schalke 04, but also in the two games after that, against Zenit St. Petersburg (2-0) and Arminia Bielefeld, Dortmund didn’t leave anything to chance. Borussia’s patience was rewarded three times in a row, each of which had to deal with a very passive counterpart. A similar game can be expected in Belgium on Wednesday evening in the premier class when BVB has to deal with the next low opponent.
After three wins in a row, Borussia Dortmund is back on the road to success. With the Belgian champions, BVB can also count on Torgarant Erling Haarland, who can be back after a short injury break. In the Dortmund back team, there are again bottlenecks due to the Hummels injury, as Emre Can (Covid-19), Dan-Axel Zagadou (outer band), Nico Schulz (fibre tear) and Marcel Schmelzer (rehab after knee surgery) will be missing. Despite the short-term squad problems on the defensive, BVB is in our opinion too strong to get into serious trouble against a team like Club Brugge.
