It ended all square at Stamford Bridge during the first leg of Chelsea’s match against Barcelona with the hosts holding out for a draw against the runaway La Liga leaders. William Hill have priced Ernesto Valverde’s side up as the 4/9 favourites for this clash at the Nou Camp with the hosts heavily favoured to prevail. Both sides were victorious at the weekend with Lionel Messi missing Barcelona’s match against Malaga due to personal reasons. The Argentinian wizard ended his barren run against the Blues in the first leg and he has been priced up as the 13/5 favourite to score the first goal of the game.

Chelsea won 2-1 against Crystal Palace on March 10th and will be conscious of their status as underdogs. Antonio Conte’s side have beaten the Catalans before in this competition and they are 6/1 to do so again.

Bayern Munich were rampant against Besiktas during the first leg of their Champions League meeting and the German side have a five-goal advantage to take to Turkey. They have been priced up as the 6/10 favourites here, despite the possibility of sending out a much-changed line-up.

Manchester United Need to Make Home Comforts Count

Jose Mourinho isn’t averse to ‘parking the bus’ and that’s exactly what he did during Manchester United’s first leg against Sevilla. The Red Devils left Spain with a 0-0 draw and they will be hoping to make it count at Old Trafford on March 13th. They warmed up for this meeting in ideal fashion with a 2-1 success against Liverpool with Marcus Rashford on target for the hosts. NetBet have priced the Premier League side up as 8/13 favourites for the second leg and they will be expected to book their place in the quarter-finals alongside the Reds.

Roma found it difficult in Ukraine during the first leg and they must find a way to break down Shakhtar Donetsk when the pair meet in the Italian Capital. The Serie A side trail 2-1 but will begin this second leg as 7/10 favourites to win inside 90 minutes at Stadio Olimpico.
