The quarter-finals of the Champions League are finally here. Europe’s elite club competition is heating up and the race to reach the showpiece event in Kyiv is well and truly on.
Bayern Munich lead our top tips on Tuesday evening but most neutrals will be tuning in to the tasty clash between Real Madrid and Juventus. Betting tips for Wednesday night are available here but for now, check out our favourite markets ahead of Tuesday’s games.
JUVENTUS vs REAL MADRID
Two goals in as many minutes handed Juventus the incentive against Tottenham Hotspur in the last-16 and the Italian side were always in control after that.
Massimiliano Allegri’s side will need to be at their brilliant best to defeat Real Madrid and a solid performance in the first leg is crucial. Gonzalo Higuain is well priced at 37/20 to get his name on the scoresheet on Tuesday evening.
Real Madrid have struggled to inspire confidence in La Liga this season but the Spanish giants are a different beast when it comes to the Champions League.
Los Blancos are shaky at the back but it would take a brave man to back against Real's potent offensive unit. 41/50 is a great price for both teams to score – the selection has landed in the last five matches involving these two clubs.
Cristiano Ronaldo has been simply sublime in the 2017/18 competition and the Portugal star will expect to add to his tally in Turin.
He is the Champions League's top goal scorer this season with 12 and he has a decent record against Juve. Plenty of punters will be backing Ronaldo to score in a Real win and that is available at a very appealing 17/5 with 888sport.
TIP: Both teams to score @ 41/50
CORRECT SCORE: Juventus 1-2 Real Madrid (8/1 with 888sport)
Sevilla vs BAYERN MUNICH
Sevilla did incredibly well to get past Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United in the previous round and there will be a few bettors who fancy another shock here.
On their day, Sevilla are capable of playing some scintillating football but this may be a step too far for the La Liga outfit. Their recent form isn’t fantastic and opposing the visitors would be foolish - Sevilla will need everything to go their way to stand any chance.
Bayern Munich are one of Europe’s most successful clubs and another trip to the European Cup semi-finals beckons.
The Bavarians, on the verge of a sixth successive title, must wait another week to secure the crown but this fixture must be Bayern's number one priority. Jupp Heynckes' men are a great bet at 4/7 to score over 1.5 goals – they are oozing confidence.
Just look at Bayern’s attack. It is a class above Sevilla’s and should be strong enough to fire the visitors into the semi finals.
Robert Lewandowski is one of the best strikers on the planet and he will could score on Tuesday night. My top tip for this contest? Bayern to score EXACTLY two goals at 23/10. A comfortable contest awaits; they won’t make the same mistakes as United.
TIP: Bayern to score exactly two goals @ 23/10
CORRECT SCORE: Sevilla 0-2 Bayern Munich (7/1 with 888sport)
