Dynamo Kiev take on Chelsea in the Champions League on Tuesday 20th October and it’s the perfect opportunity to make the most of the football betting offers at bet365.
Chelsea will be hoping to return to winning ways in the Champions League when they make the trip to Ukraine – after a 4-0 home win over Maccabi Tel-Aviv in their opening Group G game was followed up with a 1-2 defeat at manager Jose Mourinho’s former side Porto. That defeat leaves them having to make group up on their competitors and they know they can ill-afford any more slip-ups in their 14th group stage campaign.
Unlike Mourinho’s men, Dynamo are yet to suffer defeat in the group stages – as they recorded a 2-2 draw with the Portuguese side at the Kiev Olympic Stadium, before following that up with a 2-0 win in Tel-Aviv last time out.
The Ukrainian double winners have suffered only one defeat in their last 10 European home games – recording seven wins during that time – so will be confident of adding to Chelsea’s woes this season on Tuesday night.
Bore Draw Money Back
Each side has kept a clean sheet against Maccabi Tel-Aviv in Group G, but their games against Porto have wielded a total of seven goals between them. Add in the fact that Chelsea have conceded at least two goals in seven of their first eight Premier League fixtures this season and there isn’t much of a case for this match ending as a goalless stalemate.
Most punters will of course be hoping for an entertaining game with goals galore but, if that’s not the case and the game does indeed finish 0-0, punters staking on the Correct Score, Half-Time/Full-Time and Scorecast markets for Dynamo Kiev v Chelsea with bet365 will at least have their bets protected by a refund of losing stakes thanks to the firm’s bore-draw promotion.
Each-Way First Goalscorers
Andriy Yarmolenko grabbed the opener within four minutes for Dynamo Kiev in their 2-0 win over Maccabi Tel-Aviv, so should be a popular choice in the First Goalscorer market.
However, with each of their four goals in Group G so far coming from a different source, the Ukrainian club have already proven they have goals throughout the team. Junior Moraes grabbed the second in their win in Israel, while Oleg Gusev and Vitaliy Buyalsky netted past FC Porto goalkeeper Iker Casillas last time out.
Willian has two Champions League goals to his name this season – after netting in both games so far – and should continue to feature on the wing for the visitors in this one.
Diego Costa – who also scored against Tel-Aviv – returned to Chelsea’s starting line-up at the weekend, following his three-game suspension. With a point to prove after his recent misdemeanours, plenty of punters will be happy to take a chance on the Spaniard to open the scoring.
Meanwhile, midfielders Cesc Fabregas and Oscar have also both found the net in this competition already this season and can be considered for an outside bet.
A great feature at bet365 is the ability to back each-way first goalscorers – settled on all goalscorers at 1/3 odds for unlimited places in 90 minutes play. It means that you can have an each-way First Goalscorer bet on Dynamo Kiev v Chelsea and be safe in the knowledge that bet365 will pay out if your player scores anytime during the game.
Partial Cash Out
There is another safety net offered by bet365, with the option to Cash Out your bet in-play if the game looks to be going against your bet or you just want to be sure of a profit.
With this feature, you can Cash Out a bet in its entirety or you can partially Cash Out your bet and leave the remainder of your stake to run.
If you’re heading for a winning bet but the other team is threatening to score, you can cut and run with the returns that bet365 offer at that time by clicking on the Cash Out button located below your selection(s).
