Champions League Preview for Match Day 3 – Season 2020/21
Lokomotiv Moscow vs Atletico Madrid – Tuesday 17:55
Let’s begin our Champions League predictions. Atletico Madrid make this trip on the back of a less than convincing start to this Group A campaign that has seen the La Liga sides lose one game and win the other. Three points on the board places them second behind Bayern Munich who boast a 100% record and already looking like pool winners. It wasn’t the start Madrid had hoped for but if they defeat a Lokomotiv Moscow side with just a point on the board they will put themselves in a great position to qualify. Moscow is never an easy place to visit but Atletico have the quality to come away with all three points. Check out our UEFA Champions League predictions below.

Real Madrid vs Inter Milan – Tuesday 20:00
There are many eye-catching matches to look forward to from the Champions League this midweek but the best of them comes from Spain where La Liga champions Real Madrid take on Italian Serie A giants Inter Milan. Blancos have struggled in their first two games, taking just one of the six points that was available them after losing their opening match and managing just a draw last time. Inter Milan aren’t much better off, sitting third following back-to-back draws. Shakhtar Donetsk currently lead the way and defeat here would be a major blow for either side and that could lead to both managers setting up defensively. Follow our Champions League betting tips.

Atalanta vs Liverpool – Tuesday 20:00
Liverpool journey to Italy where they take on Atalanta in a crucial Champions League Group D match and with both teams bringing unbeaten records so far, this should shape up to be a thrilling 90 minutes from the UEFA Champions League. Red top the table with six points gained from their first two starts, scoring three goals, and keeping a pair of clean sheets. They went into this campaign as favourites to win the group and go on to challenge for the trophy. Jurgen Klopp’s men have certainly lived up to expectations so far. Atalanta are in second with four points against their name after following an opening week win with a draw last time against Ajax. They would blow this group wide open if they were to grab a home win against Liverpool, but it’s a big ask.

Liverpool fans will have one eye on this match as both FC Midtjylland and Ajax target a win that would see them keep pace with the front two in the pack.

Chelsea vs Rennes – Wednesday 20:00
Champions League football returns to Stamford Bridge on Wednesday evening as Chelsea host French Ligue 1 side Rennes in Group E. This is a match that sees top of the pool take on bottom and followers of the London club will hope the final score reflects that. Chelsea have taken four of the six points available to them in this competition so far, following an opening day draw with victory last midweek. Frank Lampard’s men have already scored four goals, failing to concede. Confidence is high in the home dressing room and we should see that shine through. Rennes are down in fourth with just a point against their name after drawing in week one before losing against Sevilla last time. They have conceded only two goals and that defence will be asked to stand firm again in England. Chelsea have the flair in attack to create chances and score goals. Chelsea are good enough to make it to the quarter-final or semi-final.
