This week’s football schedule serves up a selection of mouth-watering fixtures across the Champions League and domestic schedule. We’re looking to capitalise on that excitement in style with this Tuesday night treble on the BTTS market.
We’re backing six teams to all find the target and, at odds of nearly 7/2, we think it has a great chance of getting the week up and running in style.
Manchester City V Borussia Monchengladbach. 7:45PM
It’s crunch time in the Champions League as the group phase reaches its final set of fixtures. But at the Etihad, Manchester City can afford to relax somewhat as they’ve already qualified for the last 16. Nevertheless, Manuel Pellegrini’s men know that a win could secure top spot and will be eager to see of Borussia Monchengladbach.
The Premier League side secured a 2-1 win during the reverse clash in Germany, and the likes of Raheem Sterling and Kevin De Bruyne will be eager to put in another good performance here, especially after their recent slump domestically. Despite those problems, the hosts have scored 35 in 12 home games this term and should be expected to score.
On the other hand, they’ve also conceded in each of the last 10 competitive matches. Borussia, meanwhile, are on a run of four straight BTTS winners and could take advantage of a slightly weakened home side. A win would confirm their place in the Europa League too, and the firepower of Raffael and co should give them a chance.
Borussia are on a high following a weekend win over Bayern and we’re backing them to find the target. Whether that will help them get any points is another question altogether.

PSV V CSKA Moscow. 7:45PM
In Group B, English eyes will be cast to Germany as Manchester United take on Wolfsburg. However, Pbilip Cocu’s Eredivisie champions know that three points against CSKA will seal their place in the last 16 regardless of what happens in the other fixture. This should lead to a fascinating contest at the Philips Stadion.
The hosts should be confident after scoring in each of their 10 competitive home games this term. Meanwhile, the goals of Luuk de Jong and Luciano Narsingh should give them a great chance against an away defence yet to keep a clean sheet.
However, the visitors know that a win would see them steal the Europa League spot, and this should encourage Leonid Slutsky’s men in spite of their recent poor form. They did beat PSV via a 3-2 scoreline back in Russia, though. Moreover, the duo of Ahmed Musa and Seydou Doubia are more than capable of finding the target.
The impetus has to be with PSV, but we’re still backing both teams to score.

Southend United V Millwall. 7:45PM
In the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy, League One rivals Southend and Millwall do battle at Roots Hall knowing that they are edging ever closer to a final appearance at Wembley. And we expect a fierce battle between the two teams in blue.
It’s almost impossible to separate these sides in the league as both currently sit on 31 points. Both teams are in relatively good scoring form. The visitors have now netted in seven straight matches, and boast 17 in 10 games on the road in League One. However, they have also leaked 15.
Southend’s home tally is a little more modest, but Phil Brown’s men have scored in seven of their last eight matches and also boast a number of players currently finding the target. Nevertheless, the same can be said for Neil Harris’s visitors.
An early goal can often send these JPT matches into high drama. Let’s hope that’s what the cards have in store for us here.
