Previewing This Week’s Champions League Quarter-Final Matches
Juventus vs Real Madrid is one of the standout Champions League quarter-final contests taking place this week with the holders travelling to Turin for their first leg encounter with the Serie A giants. Zinedine Zidane’s side have struggled for consistency this season and are expected to head back to the Bernabeu empty-handed.
Despite their struggles in La Liga this season, Real Madrid have been priced up as the favourites for this tie at 6/4 with Paddy Power. Juventus are unbeaten in all competitions at this stadium since October 2017 and will be extremely popular with punters at 17/10. A draw, which is deemed a realistic outcome, is available at 2/1.
Sevilla host Bayern Munich in the other Champions League clash on April 3rd with the Bundesliga club priced up as clear favourites at 4/6. The hosts, who surprised Manchester United in the round of 16, can be backed at a tempting 7/2.
Liverpool and Manchester City Could Cancel One Another Out
Liverpool and Manchester City meet in an all-Premier League clash at Anfield. The two English clubs were drawn together and the first leg between the pair looks set to an extremely evenly matched contest. Jurgen Klopp has confirmed that he won’t rest any players for Liverpool’s Premier League clash against Crystal Palace despite this testing clash arriving just days later.
There’s a high chance of this meeting ending all-square with the draw available at 12/5 with William Hill. The leaders are 13/10 favourites whilst the Reds are priced up at 17/10 to take a precious lead into the second leg.
There were twelve goals across the two previous meetings between this high-flying duo and there’s a decent chance of Over 2.5 Goals landing once more. It’s unsurprisingly odds-on at 4/6.
April 4th also sees Barcelona host Roma with the La Liga leaders expected to ease past their opponents at a price of 1/4. The imperious Lionel Messi is 23/10 to net the first goal of the game.
