Find Value Betting the Champions League Quarters 2nd Legs

Football fans have another feast of Champions League football to look forward to with the second legs of the quarter-finals about to take place. Juventus, Monaco, Atlético Madrid and Real Madrid have the advantages from the first legs but as the previous round showed, anything can happen in the second legs. Here are the best odds and tips for online betting on the four fixtures!

Betting Preview: Barcelona vs Juventus 2nd Leg

Barcelona have it all to do once again. Having sensationally overturned a four-goal deficit in their last 16 tie against Paris Saint-Germain, the Spanish champions will have to pull off a similar comeback after losing 3-0 to Juventus last Tuesday.

Barca clearly have issues at the back right now, unlike Juventus who have gone 441 minutes without conceding in the Champions League. That defensive solidity will give them ample confidence they can protect their lead at the Nou Camp on Wednesday, and the Italian champions are favourites to win to nil again.

After their incredible comeback against PSG, the bookies are erring on the side of caution with Barca, with best odds of 5/1 at bet365 on Luis Enrique’s side to qualify. They’re also favourites to win on the night at 8/15 with William Hill.

Betting Preview: Monaco vs Borussia Dortmund 2nd Leg

Monaco are on the verge of progressing to the Champions League semi-finals for the first time since 2004 after a 3-2 win in their first leg against Borussia Dortmund. Teenage wonder Kylian Mbappé was the star of the night in Germany as his two goals helped put Monaco in the driving seat.

Dortmund are not as strong on their travels as they are on home turf but they are considered slight favourites to win on the night among most of the bookies, with best odds of 5/4 over at bet365. Due to the away goals rule, they must win by two goals or score three or more to either get through or to force extra time, which is why the odds on the German side to qualify are longer at 5/2 with NetBet.

Punters should be prepared for another high-scoring game in France, though. Dortmund’s nine games in the Champions League this season have produced a total of 40 goals, while Monaco’s last six have each seen three or more goals. There’s not much value to be had in the total goals market but for those feeling brave, a 9/4 punt on over 4.5 goals with bet365 is certainly worth considering.

Betting Preview: Leicester City vs Atlético Madrid 2nd Leg

Leicester City are still in with a shout following their first leg in Spain last Wednesday. The Premier League champions lost 1-0 due to a controversial penalty but Atlético will probably be disappointed they don’t have a bigger lead to take to England.

Despite their good league form and their 100% record at home in the Champions League this season, the bookies don’t fancy the Premier League champions to pull off another shock. Ladbrokes’ odds of 13/5 on Leicester to win on the night are certainly appealing, while bet365 is offering 11/2 on them to reach the next round.

The Foxes could be missing their two first-choice centre-backs with Robert Huth suspended and Wes Morgan still struggling with an injury. Given that Atlético have the best defensive record in La Liga, odds on the visitors to win to nil at 9/4 with Ladbrokes look decent value.

Betting Preview: Real Madrid vs Bayern 2nd Leg

It was all going well for Bayern in the first leg until the end of the first half. Arturo Vidal, who had put the German champions 1-0 up, missed the chance to double their lead from the penalty spot. Seconds after the restart, Cristiano Ronaldo levelled for Madrid before putting them ahead after Bayern had gone down to ten men.

Although they would’ve won by more had it not been for a series of excellent saves from Manuel Neuer, Real will be confident of protecting their one-goal advantage at the Bernabeu, where they’ve only lost once this season and are unbeaten in 13 Champions League matches. The Spanish side are therefore slight favourites to win on the night at 7/5 with bet365.

Bayern will be desperately hoping that star players Mats Hummels and Robert Lewandowski are back after missing the first leg. The Bundesliga side have only won four of their last 14 away games in the competition and are 15/8 with Paddy Power to win on the night in Spain.

At 37/10, NetBet offers the best odds on Bayern boss Carlo Ancelotti to get one over his former assistant Zinedine Zidane and qualify for another Champions League semi-final. For more online football betting markets, visit NetBet where new customers can get their hands on a £50 welcome bonus!
