Leicester City v Atletico Madrid: Brave Foxes To Bow Out

Diego Simeone take his Atletico Madrid side to the King Power Stadium on Tuesday with a 1-0 lead. This tie is delicately poised, with a controversial Antoine Griezmann penalty proving to be the difference in Madrid. The Foxes will certainly fancy their chances of turning this one around.

Craig Shakespeare’s men put on a brave showing at the Vicente Calderon and, on another day, they could have easily come back with a 0-0 draw. Still, despite their strong performance in the Spanish capital, Leicester are the 14/5 second favourites with BetVictor to win on Tuesday, and 11/2 (Bet365) to qualify.

As for last year’s Champions League runners-up, they would have liked a bigger margin of victory, but will no doubt be content with their lead. Los Rojiblancos are as short as 1/8 (Betfred) to progress, whilst they are available at odds of 11/10 at Sporting Bet to win in the 90.

Unfortunately for the Foxes, we can see the pair cancelling each other out at the King Power Stadium. Ladbrokes are offering the very tempting price of 23/10 for this second leg to end all square at the home of the Premier League champions.

Real Madrid v Bayern Munich: Real To Kick On

These two European giants put on one hell of a show at the Allianz Arena on Wednesday, with Cristiano Ronaldo’s brace being enough to give Real Madrid a 2-1 lead over Bayern Munich. We’re predicting more fireworks in Madrid on Tuesday, in a game that could go either way.

Carlo Ancelotti’s Bavarians had the chance to go 2-0 up just before half time, but Arturo Vidal found row Z with his penalty. Ronaldo then equalised before Javi Martinez was sent off for the hosts. That man Ronaldo popped up again to give Real a priceless 2-1 advantage.

Los Blancos are priced at 7/5 (Sporting Bet) to win at the Bernabeu Stadium in the 90 on Tuesday, with William Hill offering betting odds of just 1/5 for Zinedine Zidane’s men to go through overall. In contrast, Bayern are available at 7/2 with BetVictor to reach the semi-finals, and are priced at 15/8 with Betway to win in normal time in the Spanish capital.

After their solid showing in Munich on Wednesday, we’re backing the Champions League holders to seal another victory over the German giants next week. Check out Sporting Bet’s 7/5 for the home triumph.

Monaco v Borussia Dortmund: BVB To Overturn Deficit

The most entertaining game of the week was the affair at the Signal Iduna Park between Thomas Tuchel’s Borussia Dortmund and Leonardo Jardim’s Monaco. The Ligue 1 outfit left Dortmund with a priceless 3-2 win, but we have not heard the last from BVB in this tie.

In a topsy-turvy game in Germany, 18-year-old Kylian Mbappe was Monaco’s hero, netting either side of half-time to help his team to a 3-2 win. However, Shinji Kagawa’s late goal has given Dortmund a slim chance in this tie. A strike by Ousmane Dembele and a Sven Bender own goal completed the scoring.

After producing such a thrilling encounter on Wednesday, we can see these two playing out another entertaining match next week. Coral are offering just 1/3 for Monaco to go through, but they are priced at 41/20 (Sporting Bet) to win in 90 minutes at the Stade Louis II.

As for the Black and Yellows, Tuchel’s men are priced at 13/10 with BetVictor to come out victorious on Wednesday, but William Hill have them available at 5/2 to qualify for the final four.

We predict Dortmund will win in Monaco, making it through to the semi-finals in the process. Therefore, BetVictor’s 29/10 for the visitors to win with a -1 goal handicap is a standout bet in this one.

Barcelona v Juventus: Draw Good Enough For The Old Lady

Massimiliano Allegri’s Juventus were simply outstanding in their home tie against Barcelona, thumping Luis Enrique’s boys 3-0 at the Juventus Stadium. However, after what Barca did to Paris Saint-Germain in the previous round, Juve will be fully aware they still have plenty of work to do in this quarter-final.

Two Paulo Dybala strikes and a header by Giorgio Chiellini gave Allegri’s men a first leg lead they could only have dreamed of. To be fair to the Old Lady, they were far superior all over the pitch. Although Blaugrana have been here before, they are going to need a miracle in Catalonia.

As expected, Barca are still the clear favourites to win on the night, with William Hill pricing them at just 8/15. Juventus are available at 11/2 (Bet365), with the draw coming in at 7/2 at Betfred. Meanwhile, Juventus are priced at just 1/7 at William Hill to qualify, whilst Barcelona are 5/1 with Bet365.

It’s our prediction that the 32-time Italian champions won’t allow Barca to pull off another great escape on Wednesday, as their defence will once again be ridiculously hard to breach. Because of that, we feel the real value is in Betfred’s 7/2 for Allegri’s men to earn a draw at the Camp Nou.
