Read up on tonight’s big games in the Champions League, place your smart multi bets and make the most of our Golden Christmas sports betting promotion!

SSC Napoli – KRC Genk (Tuesday December 10, 6.55 p.m.)

Belgian title defender KRC Genk leaves its Limburg base to visit Naples in southern Italy in the midst of a weak spell in the Belgian Pro League. Genk has failed to impress as a title defender in general. and its Champions League campaign too suffered from lacklustre performances, despite keeping the better-on-paper Napoli outfit at bay in a goalless draw in the first leg. Genk currently sits a fourth place that it can’t shake off anymore. Naples still has a shot at qualification if it doesn’t lose to Genk or if RB Salzburg doesn’t spring a surprise home victory against Liverpool. Can Genk at least step off the Champions League stage with its head held high?

Inter Milan – Barcelona (Tuesday December 10, 9 p.m.)

In another big game that includes some likely teams for at least a few more rounds, Inter Milan prepare to receive Spanish powerhouse Barcelona. Of note in this fixture is the fact that Barcelona has not won in Italy in 8 games. In a group that also includes Borussia Dortmund and Slavia Prague, the Milanese side sits in second place, 4 points behind Barcelona, and level with Dortmund. Only a win can qualify the Italians, but against a star-studded Barcelona that’s already bound to finish first, that’s of course easier said than done. Inter Milan will definitely need its in-form attacker Romelu Lukaku, who has been helping Internazionale with ample goals.

Bayern Munich – Tottenham Hotspur (Wednesday December 11, 9 p.m.)

As was to be expected, it’s Bayern Munich and Tottenham Hotspur who are leading their group, that also included Red Star Belgrade and Olympiacos. Die Bayern have won all of their five games so far, and netted 21 times in those victories. Against that, the Spurs can take pride in three victories, landing them clear in second place, yet with no way to gain first place. Munich has a shot at history in this match: it can become only the seventh team to get a maximum of 18 points in the group phase. The Londoners will be out for blood after the 2-7 thrashing that the German giant delivered at Tottenham Hotspur stadium back in October. This could get hot!

Club Bruges – Real Madrid (Wednesday December 11, 9 p.m.)

Club Bruges rather surprisingly exerts historical dominance here: Los Blancos never beat the Belgian side, recording one 2-0 defeat back in the seventies, and 2 draws. The blue-black Belgians came close to a stunt by gaining a 0-2 advantage in the first leg, until Real managed to redress the balance. Bruges could use the absence due to injury of Eden Hazard, coupled with the home crowd boost of the Jan Breydel stadium, to prove its worth in the highest echelons of European football. The royal squad from Madrid, on the other hand, will want to leave with a clear and emphatic victory to get a point across to its possible competition down the road...
