Atletico Madrid Has Slight Edge To Win on Road on Tuesday

It's a full slate of Champions League action on Tuesday, with a total of eight games set to take place.

One of the more intriguing matches will see Benfica play host to Atletico Madrid. Both teams currently sit with 10 points in Group C, which is good for a first place tie. Galatasaray AS and FC Astana are far off the pace with 4 and 3 points, respectively.

Benfica, which will be at home on Tuesday, is still considered the underdog to win, despite the fact that both teams have 10 points so far. Atletico Madrid, which is considered one of the top second tier teams in the world, will look to get a stranglehold on Group C with a win on Tuesday.

Here are the current betting odds for this match as of this moment:

Benfica, 3.60
Draw, 3.10
Atletico Madrid, 2.20

As you can see, the bookmakers, who consider Atletico Madrid to be the more talented team, have Atletico Madrid with the edge to win.


The bookmakers are expecting a low scoring match on Tuesday, as evidenced by these odds:

Under 2.5 Goals, 1.50
Over 2.5 Goals, 2.50

With each of the two teams having already qualified for the knockout round, there will not be much to play for on Tuesday, which means that the team's most talented scorers likely won't see a full game's worth of action. Having said that, both sides would still like to finish first in the group, so it will be interesting to see how the two sides approach the contest.


Who do you think will win on Tuesday?
