December 1, 2010 Sports Betting

Sports betting online on the Champions League should be popular the next two weeks with second round play highlighted by AC Milan and David Becker facing his former team Manchester United.

There are a number of games on the sportsbetting odds board for the Champions League with play beginning on Tuesday.

Sports betting online had the game between AC Milan and Manchester United about a pick.  It should be a popular one in sportsbetting since Beckham faces his former team for the first time.  Beckham left United after the 2002-2003 sportsbetting season and went to Real Madrid.  He then went to play for the Los Angeles Galaxy where he impacted sports betting online.  He is currently on loan to AC Milan. "It’s one of the biggest games for me," said Beckham, "But the most important thing is the team going through and beating United, which I hope we do."

United seems ready to face AC Milan in sports betting online. "It’s a good time for us to be going to Milan," said United manager Alex Ferguson, "They played this weekend. They’ve lost Kaka and have a few injuries, whereas we weren’t playing this weekend and we have had a good rest."

It has been two months since the teams played in Champions League sports betting online action.  Also on the sports betting online board are a number of other intriguing matches including Real Madrid at Lyon. Cristiano Ronaldo really wants to do well for Madrid who has not made the quarterfinals since 2004. "It’s a long time. It’s time to bring that to an end," Ronaldo said. "If Real Madrid can’t beat Lyon, then we can’t think about winning the Champions League."

Arsenal is at FC Porto on Wednesday night in sports betting online while Bayern Munich hosts Fiorentina. "The minimum requirement is not to lose the game and be out of the tie," Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said. "A clean sheet will do, but we are a team who will not hide-we want to play. It will be two ties, so let’s be clever and use our experience of the Champions League to take advantage of the fact we play the second leg at home."

Next week it will be Olympiakos hosting Bordeaux in sportsbetting as second round action continues in the Champions League in addition to Barcelona at Stuttgart, Inter Milan against Chelsea and CSKA Moscow hosting Sevilla.
