Liverpool to overcome Neymar, Mbappe and PSG? Cristiano Ronaldo to score again?

ESPN FC's Shaka Hislop says he doesn't like what he's seen so far from Liverpool's strikers to start the season.
Cristiano Ronaldo netted his 1st career Serie A goal 320 minutes into his Juventus career and added another later in Juventus' win over Sassuolo.

Our banker bet landed again at the weekend but Everton's surprise 3-1 defeat to West Ham scuppered a potential 10/1 treble. The Champions League group phase kicks off this week, including a mouthwatering clash between Liverpool and Paris-Saint Germain on Tuesday.

Running total: -£43.29

The Banker

Despite the views of Gary Neville, Liverpool will be out to win both the Premier League and Champions League this season, and they get an early test of their European credentials against PSG. The Reds were a revelation in Europe last season and have made the perfect start domestically this term after a fifth straight win of the season at Spurs. PSG are flying themselves but face a Liverpool side who are brimming with confidence. Jurgen Klopp's men hit an astonishing 47 goals in 15 Champions League games last season and can win this blockbuster clash at Anfield. The atmosphere should be jumping when Neymar and Kylian Mbappe come to town and 13/10 for Liverpool to win a potential thriller looks the way to bet.

Selection: £5 on Liverpool to win at 13/10 with bet365.

The Tasty Treble

Cristiano Ronaldo makes his eagerly awaited return to Spain when Juventus (17/20) face Valencia on Wednesday. Fresh from scoring his first two goals for the Italian champions, the Champions League all-time top scorer can help Juve to get off to the perfect start in Group H. Atletico Madrid's recent record in the Champions League has been excellent and they have the quality to land odds of 3/4 by winning in Monaco. The French team suffered all kinds of issues in the group stages last season, eventually claiming just two points out of a possible 18. Atleti have strengthened in key areas and should be too good. Finally Manchester United (8/11) can make it three wins on the bounce by beating Swiss champions Young Boys. The Red Devils have made an erratic start to the season but wins on the road against Burnley and Watford suggest they may have turned a corner. The treble with bet365 is paying bigger than 9/2 and looks solid.

Selection: £3 on the treble at 4.59/1 with bet365.

The First Goal Flutter

Ronaldo plundered an astonishing 451 goals in 438 games for Real Madrid, and while he can expect a torrid reception in Valencia, he looks worthy of consideration at 11/4 to score first. Los Che have looked poor so far this season, claiming a return of just three points from their opening four La Liga matches. The stage could be set then for Ronaldo, a five-time winner of Europe's elite competition, to remind everyone he's still a force on the biggest stage.

Selection: £2 on Ronaldo to score first at 11/4 with bet365.

The Euro wager

Inter Milan have made a poor start to their Serie A campaign, yet it's still surprising to see them chalked up as 2/1 outsiders to beat Tottenham. Harry Kane was thoroughly shackled by Liverpool at the weekend, but the player himself insists he is not suffering from World Cup burnout. Spurs have lost their last two, and the Italian giants could be getting them at just the right time here.

Selection: £2 on Inter Milan to win at 2/1 with bet365.

The Wildcard Tip

Manchester City, 9/2 outright favourites to win the Champions League, kick off their campaign with a home fixture against Lyon. City are short odds against a Lyon side who have already lost twice this season. Look for Pep Guardiola's team to lay down a marker to the rest of Europe this week and a 3-0 home win can be backed at 7/1.

Selection: £1 on Manchester City to win 3-0 at 7/1 with bet365.
