Champions League picks for Slavia Prague vs. Ferencvaros
Before you tune in to Wednesday's Champions League qualifier, you need to see the UEFA Champions League picks from European soccer insider Martin Green. After working in the sports betting industry for several years, Green became a professional sports writer and handicapper and has covered the game worldwide. Since then, his European soccer picks have been spot-on. Green has generated nearly $19,000 for $100 bettors since the 2017-18 season, and he has his finger on the pulse of the game all over the globe.
For Ferencvaros vs. Slavia Prague, Green is backing under 2.5 total goals at -150 odds. Defense is the strength of both teams, as each allowed the fewest goals in their respective league last season by a wide margin. Ferencvaros gave up just 22 goals (0.67 per game), which was 14 fewer than the next best team, while Slavia Prague allowed 20 (0.59 per game), 12 fewer than second-best.
On the other hand, neither Slavia Prague nor Ferencvaros is especially potent on offense outside of the domestic leagues. Slavia Prague could only find the back of the net once over two Champions League games last year, while Ferencvaros could only muster seven goals across six home games during last season's Champions League journey.
