We close out the final set of Champions League group-stage matches this week, setting us up for a wild finish before the knockout round commences. And that means we have more prop plays for you on the Tuesday and Wednesday cards.

Adding to our already extensive coverage of the event, we’re continuing to deliver more betting angles at The Action Network via our new element that will feature our three top prop plays. From player angles to team and game picks, you will find a little bit of everything to entertain your betting interests.

That said, check out below where I’ve found betting value on three highlighted props, which come from intriguing games featuring Paris Saint-Germain vs. Club Brugge, Porto vs. Atlético Madrid and AC Milan vs. Liverpool.

Champions League Prop Bets

The top two spots in Group A have already been decided prior to this final round of games. Only the third spot, which offers a path to the Europa League knockout stage, is in doubt. The stakes are nearly zero for Paris Saint-Germain, while Club Brugge has the opportunity to fight for that Europa berth.

Brugge has totaled 10 cards through its first five UCL games for an average of two per match, while PSG has tallied the same number. In theory, this should offer value to the over, but it’s the referee of the contest that indicates that’s not the case.

Jesus Gil Manzano is taking charge of the affair, and the Spanish referee is not keen to hand out bookings based on his UCL résumé this year. In Manzano’s two games that he’s officiated, the Spaniard has distributed only two cards apiece. That’s tied for the lowest average of all UCL referees this year.

With lowered stakes on the contest and a referee that is very lenient to his players, go with the under on this cards prop.

Porto vs. Atlético Madrid

The Pick Both Teams to Score — Yes (-120)

In a winner-take-all tie, Atlético Madrid needs three points to advance and Porto might only need a draw. However, with AC Milan playing at home against a Liverpool side that will be full of rotation and no motivation, it’s possible that both teams would need a win to advance.

With that being the case, I expect a Diego Simeone-led Atlético Madrid side that typically loves to emphasize defensive structure and a counterattacking style to take the initiative in Porto. An early goal either way and the conceding team will have no choice but to be aggressive in trying to reclaim the goal, so this could be a surprisingly high-scoring affair.

Porto has generated more than one xG per game at home while conceding more than one xGA at home as well. The same can be said for Atlético Madrid on the road, and this further breeds a chance for goals to be scored.

Look for fireworks in one of the most important matches of the week.

AC Milan vs. Liverpool

The Pick AC Milan — 1H Moneyline (+155)

This could be another match in which context plays an important role in determining a result.

As I mentioned above, Liverpool doesn’t have much incentive to put in a big effort at the San Siro, and I think AC Milan could punish the Reds quickly because of it. Jürgen Klopp has already assured the public he’ll be rotating his squad heavily for the dead rubber, and Milan has everything in front of it in terms of qualification.

The Rossoneri enter the final round of matches in third place, with a win the only path toward qualifying via the second spot. AC Milan will have all of the energy in a crucial tie for the club, and I expect it to pay off early.

Back AC Milan to get off to a hot start in this battle.
