Wednesday is a busy day for those who are hooked on football, because the most important European competition schedules qualifiers. The first leg of the third preliminary round has already concluded and favorites were generally successful, but everything will be decided today.
Celtic takes on Qarabag and this time they will play on the road, after winning the first leg by a narrow margin. The Scottish side is notorious for struggling away from home and that’s why the odds offered by Ladbrokes on their victory are so tempting. Punters who are reluctant to back the visitors at full stakes, should know that it has also enhanced the odds on Celtic to win and both teams to score to 11/2 from 9/2.
Chelsea will be playing straight in the Champions League when the competition resumes in autumn and right now prepares for the upcoming Premier League season. They are expected to win the title once again and the preliminary campaign sees them locking horns with Fiorentina.
As the North American friendly games are about to conclude, this is the last game they will play and Chelsea will try to make the most of it. Fiorentina is no pushover and after its performance against Barcelona, punters are wise to give them credit against the new champions. Ladbrokes are offering enhanced odds of 11/4 on Chelsea to win and both teams to score, up from 15/8.
