Yesterday was a fantastic day of Champions League soccer as Bayern beat PSG by 1-0, but the French side still managed to go through on aggregate. While Porto also beat Chelsea 1-0, but it wasn’t enough to go through, and we will be seeing both PSG and Chelsea in this seasons’ Champions League semi-finals.
Today, another two fantastic ties await as Real Madrid will be facing Liverpool, and Manchester City will be looking to defend the lead against Borussia Dortmund. Scroll below, and we’ll go over the best bets, odds, and predictions for today’s UEFA Champions League action together.
Borussia Dortmund vs. Manchester City
The two sides faced each other at the Etihad Stadium last time out, and there were fireworks back then. The English side managed to get a very tight win against Borussia Dortmund by 2-1. Kevin De Bruyne scored the first goal after a Riyad Mahrez assist, while Jude Bellingham’s goal for 1-1 was disallowed after the refs called a foul on him. Many experts agree that the ref wrongfully disallowed the goal. After that incident, it was a very tight game right until the end, when Erling Braut Haaland provided an assist for Marco Reus in the 84th minute of the game. The German side believed that they got the result they wanted, only for Phil Foden to score in the 90th minute of the game to give Manchester City a hard-fought win. We’ll love the 2nd leg, even if it’s half as exciting as this one.
What can we expect from the 2nd leg?
Well, Borussia Dortmund goes through with a 1-0 win, so they’ll need to attack for sure. However, it’s hard to believe that Man City won’t get at least one goal in this match. That’s why we, at Sports Betting Guide, believe there will be lots of goals in this game. The 2nd leg will be played at Borussia’s Signal Iduna Park on the 14th of April (Wednesday) at 3 pm. This game’s odds for Borussia Dortmund are +411, +327 for a draw, and -147 for a Man City victory. We think that Man City will get away with a win from this soccer match. However, the best bet for this game is undoubtedly Over 2.75 goals. The odds for this one are -275, and whoever scores the first goal, the other one must open up, which will leave them vulnerable to counter-attacks.
Liverpool vs. Real Madrid
Real Madrid faced Liverpool last week at Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano in a comfortable 3-1 win for the Spanish side. Vinicius was the main man for Real Madrid as he scored the two goals that got them an easy victory. Toni Kroos and Luka Modric were also the players that deserve a shout. Their remarkable passing performance helped the team control the possession for most of the game. Mohammed Salah was the scorer at the other end, giving them a tiny bit of hope for the game at Anfield. Liverpool will need to work their magic at their own ground to get a successful result out of this.
What can we expect from the 2nd leg?
Well, we believe that Liverpool will do everything in their power to get the two goals required for them to go through. At the same time, this will leave them vulnerable to counter-attacks, and we all know how that worked out for Real Madrid last week. The odds for this game are very much in Liverpool’s favor. Their odds are -103, +308 for a draw, and +270 for a Real Madrid win. Even though the odds are in Liverpool’s favor, we’re predicting a victory for the Spanish side as they’ll try to hurt the weak Liverpool defense through counter-attacks.
