There are 8 group games in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday as the race to qualify for the knockout stages heats up.

Barcelona need a home win against Inter Milan in Group C to boost their chances of making the last 16, while Rangers host Liverpool in Glasgow and Ajax aim to avenge a 6-1 loss to Napoli on Matchday 3.

We’ve selected 4 strong bets from Wednesday’s slate so read on for our Champions League Matchday 4 predictions. Odds are all courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook at time of publishing.

Barcelona vs Inter Milan best bet: Barcelona to win to nil (+146)

Barcelona are under pressure in Group C after an acrimonious 1-0 loss at Inter Milan on Matchday 3. Bayern Munich look set to win the group so Barca desperately needs 3 points at home to Inter and Xavi’s men can edge another tight contest.

There were only 4 shots on target, 2 apiece, in last week’s clash in Milan and Inter may struggle to create scoring chances at Camp Nou. Barcelona’s defense has conceded only 1 goal in 8 matches in La Liga this season and the hosts can claim an important victory with a shutout.

Napoli vs Ajax best bet: Napoli ML and over 3.5 goals (+202)

Napoli have made a stunning start to the Champions League season, beating Liverpool 4-1, Rangers 3-0 and coming from 1-0 down to thrash Ajax 6-1 in Amsterdam on Matchday 3. Ajax is aiming to bounce back from that defeat in Naples on Wednesday but Napoli’s offensive unit is full of confidence and the home side should win another entertaining game.

Napoli have won their last 8 matches in all competitions but Luciano Spalletti’s men kept only 2 shutouts during that run, so back Napoli to win a high-scoring game.

Rangers vs Liverpool best bet: Liverpool ML and both teams to score (+133)

Liverpool’s EPL struggles continued with a 3-2 loss at Arsenal last weekend and the rocking Reds have lost Luis Diaz, Joel Matip and Trent Alexander-Arnold to injury. Jurgen Klopp’s men should still be too strong for Champions League rivals Rangers, who lost 2-0 at Anfield last week.

The Gers, bottom of Group A, have lost all 3 of their Champions League group games without scoring a goal but they have found the net 8 times in their last 2 Scottish Premiership games, and can get on the scoresheet against a Liverpool defense that has conceded 12 goals in 8 EPL games this season.

Atletico Madrid vs Club Brugge best bet: Both teams to score (-104)

Club Brugge have upset the odds with 3 wins out of 3 in Group B and the Belgians can get on the scoresheet on their trip to Spain to face Atletico Madrid. Brugge beat Atletico 2-0 at home on Matchday 3, although Diego Simeone’s Atleti racked up 20 shots at goal.

Atletico have to go for maximum points on Matchday 4, having also lost to Bayer Leverkusen, and an open game featuring goals at both ends is expected.
