Get set for some great Champions League action with Arsenal travelling to Croatia to play Dinamo Zagreb, and Chelsea taking on Maccabi Tel-Aviv at Stamford Bridge.

In the lead up to each match, we've taken a look at each teams form, the bookmakers offering the best odds/price boosts and the best signup offers you can claim.

Dinamo Zagreb v Arsenal

Although Arsenal haven’t been performing that well in the Premier League, having missed a lot of chances, they're bookmakers favourites to win this Champions League match.

Champions League Betting Odds

The odds on an Arsenal win are extremely short with Bet365.com offering the best at 1/2. Luckily they'll also match the first bet you place (max £200) with a bonus bet.

If you’re betting on Dinamo Zagreb to beat Arsenal then head to WilliamHill.com who offer the best odds at 6/1 as well as a £25 matched bet offer for new signups.

Of course, the game could end in a draw and Bet365 also offer the best odds on this result at 7/2 and represents another great opportunity to claim the Bet365 signup offer!

Each Team's Chances

Arsenal are quite good at making it through to the group stages, but always seem to exit the competition after Round 16 which they've done for the past 5 seasons.

Having won 7 out of their last 11 Champions League games, it’s easy to see why bookmakers offer them up as favourites to beat Croatia's Dinamo Zagreb.

Dinamo Zagreb have made it back in the Champions League for the first time since 2012, and while they’re hungry for success, it will be a tough game to win.

Coming off the back of losing their last 6 clashes against UK clubs, and only scoring 4 goals in their last 12 Champions League games, Dinamo Zagreb could struggle against Arsenal.

Chelsea v Maccabi Tel-Aviv

The other Champions League game we're looking at from Wednesday night's action takes place at Stamford Bridge and is between Chelsea and Maccabi Tel-Aviv.

Champions League Betting Odds

SkyBet.com offer the best odds on Chelsea winning at 1/6. Although the odds are short, they also offer signups a 'bet £5, get a £20 bonus' which makes the bet more appealing.

It’s highly unlikely that Maccabi will manage to beat Chelsea, but if you’re going to back them, back them at Betfred.com as they offer the best odds at 25/1.

Betfred offer new signups £30 in free bets which can be earned by betting £10. If Maccabi win you'll win £250 + £30 in free bets. If they don't, you'll still get £30 in bonus bets!

Odds are slightly shorter on Chelsea v Maccabi Tel-Aviv ending in a draw, with Totesport.com offering punters the best odds at 7/1 as well as a £25 bonus bet for new signups.

Each Team's Chances

Incredibly online bookmakers offer Chelsea up as the firm favourites to win this Champions League match despite their poor Premier League form.

Chelsea will be hoping for a better start to their Champions League challenge after a terrible start to their domestic season which has seen them drop into the relegation zone.

They've only managed to win 1 game in the Premier League this season but have also only suffered 1 loss in their last 35 Champions League games played at home.

Israel's Maccabi Tel-Aviv are only making their 2nd ever appearance in the Group Stages of the Champions League and will be nervous facing Jose's experienced team.

The last time Maccabi made it through to the Group Stages of the Champions League was 10 years ago where they finished at the bottom with just 4 points.

NB: Champions League betting odds correct at the time this article went live. Bookmakers shorten odds closer to kick off so bet early for the best odds!
