Santiago Bernabéu stadium where Real Madrid play football in the European Champions League

Real Madrid v APOEL Nicosia Betting Predictions and Match Preview

Last season Real Madrid managed to do what no other side has in the Champions League era has in retaining the title of European champions, and they begin their quest for a record-extending third win with a very inviting looking home fixture. Apoel Nicosia are their opponents, and the fixture looks set to be one-way traffic.

It’s almost unheard of these days for sides to come to Santiago Bernabéu Stadium in European competition and claim victory, with Schalke in March 2015 being the last side to do so, and the KickOff predictive algorithm suggests there is little-to-no chance of that feat being repeated here. Real Madrid are massive 90% favourites, meaning that anything other than a home win would be an upset of vast proportions.

Goals tend to be the order of the day in home Champions League games for Real Madrid, with their last 6 fixtures having an average of 4.3 per game. With this is mind, a KickOff prediction of 81% for there being over 2.5 goals in this match begins to make perfect sense. With far more value available in the over/under market for this fixture than win/draw/win, this is undoubtedly where the bet of the night lies.
