This Champions League last 16 has got several glamour ties seeing two giants of football do battle and AC Milan versus Atletico Madrid is up there with the very best. Read on for our preview with the latest live betting odds comparison and our betting tips for this Champions League first leg game.

AC Milan are going through a time of turmoil and, having recently replaced the sacked Massimiliano Allegri with former star Clarence Seedorf they sit just 11th in Serie A. Domestic results have been atrocious, especially on the road and they scraped through Group H just a point ahead of Ajax and well behind Barcelona.

In contrast Atletico Madrid are flying, pushing Barcelona every step of the way in La Liga having breezed through their Champions League group dropping just two points, a performance only matched by their city rivals Real. Despite the loss of Radamel Falcao they have flourished and look a very well balanced side and are clear favourites to qualify for the Champions League quarters.

For this tie at the San Siro they are also favourites at odds of 6/4 with Ladbrokes, whilst the home side are out at around 9/4 on the betting exchanges. Those betting on the draw will find odds of 12/5 in our live odds comparison and we think that looks the value bet here in what may be a tight, cautious affair.
