Mr. Predictor discusses the big games in the Champions League and more

Ok gang! These teams are fighting for a place in the quarter-finals of the Champions League and Europa League. Check out my tips for these games and bet here if you want to back them.

Man City 4 v 0 Schalke – Tuesday 12 March – Champions League - Man City Win and Over 2.5 Goals (1.40)

This should be comfortable for City after they came from 2-1 down to win the first leg. They’ve won 13 of their last 15 games in all competitions and have scored 18 goals in their last five games at the Etihad. Schalke have lost their last four games in all competitions, conceding at least three times in each of those. I see a big Home Win.

Juventus 1 v 0 Atletico – Tuesday 12 March – Champions League - Under 2.5 Goals (1.70)

Atletico are in a very strong position after they won 2-0 in the first leg. They have won five games in a row without conceding a single goal and have kept a clean sheet in their last four Champions League games. Juventus have won all three of their matches since the first leg and have been strong at home recently, but I think that this is a step too far for them.

Barcelona 3 v 1 Lyon – Wednesday 13 March – Champions League – Both Teams to Score (1.80)

Lyon claimed a draw in the first leg and I think they’ll give Barcelona a good game here. The French side are unbeaten in Europe this season, although they have drawn the last six. That said, Barcelona have had four wins in a row since the first leg and have won 18 of their last 20 Champions League games at the Nou Camp. I’m backing a Home Win, but Both Teams to Score is a shrewd bet.

Bayern Munich 2 v 1 Liverpool – Wednesday 13 March – Champions League – Both Teams to Score (1.60)

These teams were both very withdrawn in the first leg, and both have reasons to be happy with a 0-0 draw. Since then, however, it’s been a different story. Bayern have now won their last seven home games in all competitions, including a 6-0 thrashing of Wolfsburg on Saturday. Liverpool picked up a much needed win on Sunday, but they’ve lost their past five Champions League games away from Anfield. They’ve also only won one of their six away games in 2019. I’m going for a Home Win.

Arsenal 3 v 1 Rennes – Thursday 14 March – Europa League - First Half with Most Goals (3.05)

Arsenal have a lot of work to do here after they lost 3-1 in the first leg. They’ve been very strong at the Emirates though, where they have won seven of their last ten home games on the handicap. Rennes are in good form, having not lost any of their last five games. However, they have lost three of their past five away games. I think Arsenal will win, but it might go to extra time.
