Adelaide United aim to get to the final of Asian Champions League

Adelaide United takes on Bunyodkor in crucial quarter final of the Asian Champions League 1st leg on Wednesday. The Australian football season has not yet begin of the 2012/13 season campaign, Adelaide players struggle to get their match fitness going. Although a few friendly match helped the Reds get back to the feet, a tough opponent from Uzbekistan may not be a happy moment on their 1st leg match at home.

Adelaide had already knocked out Bunyodkor in the quarter final stage back in 2008, and the Reds had also just played against Bunyodkor in the group stage in this year back in March and May 2012. The Reds may have a slight confidence on their side since they have been playing against their opponent regularly in recent years.

Bunyodkor meanwhile has grown stronger ever since. As they used to managed by famous Brazilian coach Luiz Felipe Scolari back in 2009, there were a lot of flair remain at the Uzbekistan’s side, and they cannot be taken lightly. From the previous meeting between the two teams, there was no favorite between the two. The first leg is always the most important for the away side, and Bunhodkor  had a bad memory back in 2008 as Scholari’s side crashed to a 3-0 defeat by Adelaide.

Looking at the latest odds from European market, Adelaide home win opening odds is just under Even, that immediately suggest the Reds may not win the match. Australian team is a better brand and well known than Bunyodkor of Uzbekistan obviously, if so, the the Home Win odds shouldn’t be near Even money.

Search for a safer market, I would look at Handicap and study the odds to see what the betting companies suggest. From the latest Handicap odds, Bunyodkor handicap +1 (Double Chance on Away/Draw) is a decent return of investment.

Team – Handicap

      Odds
Adelaide United -1 3.50
Bunyodkor +1 1.73

Betting recommendation: Bunyodkor +1 (Double Chance – Away/Draw) @ 1.73

If the odds on Bunyodkor is shortening on the match day, that suggest there are people heavily backing on Bynyodkor. Otherwise, Under 2.5 goals can also be consider if you think Bunyodkor is not your cup of tea.
