Previewing This Week’s Champions League Quarter-Final Matches

It’s an all-Premier League affair in the Champions League quarter-finals as Liverpool host Manchester City for a place in the final four. The bookmakers are finding it difficult to separate these two sides, with William Hill making Pep Guardiola’s side narrow favourites at $2.40. A draw at Anfield appears to be the likeliest outcome and is available at $3.50.

Both sides warmed up for this encounter with victories on and March 31 (Liverpool) and April 1 (Man City). The Citizens triumphed 3-1 at Goodison Park, with this latest success moving them within one win of wrapping up the Premier League title.

There have been 12 goals across the two previous meetings between these teams and there is a high chance of this pair serving up another hugely entertaining contest.

Liverpool’s inability to defend has seen them heavily favoured in the goals-based markets this season and the $1.65 odds available with William Hill for Over 2.5 Goals and $1.53 for Both Teams to Score looks extremely tempting. It is set to be a mouth-watering 90 minutes of top-class action with both sides desperate to book their place in the semi-finals.

Barcelona face Roma on April 5, with the runaway La Liga leaders heavily favoured to prevail at $1.22 with William Hill.

Juventus Aiming to Eliminate the Holders

The other standout match-up of the quarter-final draw is Juventus vs Real Madrid with the holders tipped to struggle in Turin. The Serie A side have been superb at the Juventus Stadium this season and despite a scare against Spurs, they have rarely looked like slipping up. They have been priced up as outsiders at $3.20 for this clash with Zinedine Zidane’s side and many are predicting them to take something from this first leg.

The visitors have been underwhelming this season and are not expected to take anything back to the Bernabeu. Despite being predicted to struggle in Italy, William Hill have priced up Los Blancos at just $2.40 to qualify for the final four of the Champions League.

Elsewhere, Bayern Munich travel to face Sevilla on April 4th and are $1.57 to see off the La Liga side who held Barcelona to a 2-2 draw at the weekend.
