Betting tips and match preview | UEFA Champions League

Real Madrid welcome Legia Warsaw to the Santiago Bernabeu on Tuesday evening, in the third round of matches from the Champions League group stages.

The Spanish side come into this match on the back of a 6-1 win away against Real Betis.

Goals from Raphael Varane (4), Karim Benzema (31), Marcelo (39), Isco (45, 62) and Cristiano Ronaldo (78) completed an emphatic night for Zidane’s side.

Cejudo scored a consolation in the 55th minute but that was as good as it got for Betis.

Real In Mixed Form

Real had gone into the weekend’s fixtures in mixed form, with four successive draws before the floodgates finally opened.

They have remained just as inconsistent in the Champions League, winning their opening match against 2-1 against Sporting Lisbon in less than convincing fashion.

The Spaniard’s followed that up with a 2-2 draw against Borussia Dortmund away, with goals Cristiano Ronaldo (17) and Raphael Varane (68) canceled out by Aubameyang (43) and a late Andre Schurrle goal (87).

Real Overwhelming Favourites

Despite their indifferent recent form, Real remain overwhelming favourites to win this game, in fact anything other than a comfortable win would be a huge shock.

They will be looking to register their second win of the competition this season, they will also be looking to make it two home wins.

Real have won 27 of their last 31 home fixtures, with the last defeat coming against Schalke 04 in 2014/15 season.

Madrid have also won all of their six matches against Polish opposition, meaning this could be another tough night for Legia.

Legia In Need Of Miracle

Legia Warsaw travel to the Santiago Bernabeu on the back of a 3-2 defeat against Pogon Szczecin at the weekend.

It’s a result that leaves Legia in 12th position in the Polish First Division, 12 points off top spot as it stands.

Goals from Adam Fraczczak (7), Gyurcsó (40 pen) and Murawski (72) were enough for the home side to reigster a win.

A brace from Radovi? (24 & 74) ensured the home side were uncomfortable right to the end though.

Propping Up The Group

Legia currently sit bottom of Group F, with sides with the pedigree of Real Madrid, Borussia Dortmund and Sporting Lisbon it was always going to be tough.

They have registered 0 points from their opening 2 matches, with defeats against Sporting Lisbon and a heavy 6-0 defeat at home against Borussia Dortmund.

On matchday two, goals from Ruiz (28) and Dost (37) were enough to secure a comfortable 2-0 win for Sporting.

The demolition at the hands of Borussia Dortmund at home will have done little for Legia’s confidence, with Real Madrid almost certain to capitalise on any defensive weaknesses.

Legia Underdogs

Legia Warsaw come into this match as underdogs, they will be looking to register their first win in the Champions League this season.

This will be a tough fixture for the Legia, given their poor form both in and out of Europa it is tough to see them getting anything other than an absolute hammering.

The Polish side are making their first Champions League appearance in 21 years, they have yet to win or even compete in either of their matches.
