Champions League soccer odds are now available at the top-rated sportsbooks as we are back with our favorite European soccer expert advice and free betting predictions. Read on for this week’s Champions League Matchday 6 soccer betting tips, soccer analysis, and free UCL betting picks for Tuesday’s fixtures.  

Borussia Dortmund vs. Besiktas JK

Tuesday, December 07, 2021 – 03:00 PM EST at Signal Iduna Park  

Form, Mentality, Champions League Odds, and Trends 

  • Dortmund's previous 3 UCL games have seen over 2.5 goals   
  • Besiktas have lost all 5 UCL matchdays this term  
  • Besiktas have allowed at least 2 goals in their 5 UCL 2021/22 meetings    

Haaland is Back, Problem Solved          

The Norwegian superstar Erling Haaland has proven to be a crucial factor in Borussia Dortmund's success this season, both domestically and in European competition. During his absence, Dortmund was handed four losses from seven fixtures, and upon his recent return to fitness, his elite goal-scoring skills have delivered in the two fixtures he's taken part in.  

Due to Dortmund's downfall with Haaland's services, Sporting CP has already claimed the 2nd place position and qualification into Champions League final-16. Unless Dortmund can win their meeting with Besiktas 12-0 and Sporting lose their respective fixture. 

With little to play for and a Europa League placement already guaranteed, we cannot expect the German side to put it all on the line; however, they're facing Besiktas – the worst performing team in the entire competition. 

The reverse meeting in Turkey ended 2-1 in Dortmund's favor, and to avoid four consecutive Champions League losses, they'll need to repeat the same successes from September's Group C opening fixture.  

Final Thoughts | Champions League Matchday 6 Betting Pick 

The result will not alter either team and their future plans. However, I still anticipate the impeccable home record of Dortmund to remain intact following the final UCL group stage meeting.  

Bayern Munich became the first team to tarnish Dortmund's home record at the weekend, leaving the Bundesliga side with a vengeful mindset heading into Tuesday's meeting with Besiktas.  

This season, Dortmund has shown to be a free-scoring team, and with an easily penetrable defense such as Besiktas, I wouldn't expect a low-scoring affair. With that said, Dortmund has continuously struggled with their clean sheet record, and backing Besiktas to score with a home win can provide incredible betting value.  

Borussia Dortmund vs. Besiktas Score Prediction: Borussia Dortmund 3 – Besiktas 1

Paris Saint-Germain FC vs. Club Brugge 

Tuesday, December 07, 2021 - 12:45 PM EST at Parc des Princes

Form, Mentality, Champions League Odds, and Trends 

  • Paris St. Germain's last 3 UCL fixtures have seen over 2.5 goals 
  • PSG score an average of 2.50 goals in their UCL home meetings  
  • Brugge's previous 3 UCL losses ended by 3 or more goals  
  • Brugge have won a mere 1 game from their 5 UCL matchdays  

Even the B-Team Should Take All Three Points             

As with many clubs who've already secured their qualification into the Champions League final-16, squad rotation is often expected to keep the starting eleven players at peak fitness. However, the talent depth of Paris should find no trouble in handing Club Brugge their fourth loss of the tournament.  

Group A's top two positions are confirmed, with Manchester City and PSG occupying these places. But Club Brugge and RB Leipzig will face the two domineering teams of their group with hopes of claiming a consolation drop into the Europa League. Currently, Leipzig will qualify on goal difference, but a draw or win for Brugge and a loss for Leipzig. 

With that said, Mauricio Pochettino and his Paris squad aren't a charity, and supplying a home victory for their fans will also give a reminder that PSG shouldn't be counted out. Recent form has undoubtedly dipped, but if a bounce-back performance is needed, there's no better club to find it with than Club Brugge.  

Final Thoughts | Champions League Matchday 6 Betting Pick 

Brugge will certainly fight for their potential Europa League placement, but allowing 14 goals in their previous three UCL meetings is a recipe for a PSG whitewash.  

With a regular starting eleven questionable and a Brugge side having a reason to fight, the betting odds on Paris winning but both teams scoring is seemingly a great piece of value.  

PSG vs. Club Brugge Score prediction: PSG 2 – Brugge 1
