We take a look at the two Championship League Round of 16 second leg fixtures taking place on Tuesday and suggest a bet in each game.
Let’s start with a look at the latest Outright Betting where Manchester City are currently trading as 22/10 favourites with Bayern Munich at 5/2, you can get 13/2 Real Madrid, 15/2 Napoli and 10/1 Chelsea with 25/1 and better the balance.
FC Porto v Inter Milan – Click here to bet
Porto lost the first leg 1-0 in Italy. The match was goalless at half-time, but a Lukaku goal in the 86th minute saw Inter take the 3 points. Porto won 2 of their 3 home matches in the group stages and domestically they are coming off back-to-back victories, 3-1 at Chaves and 3-2 at home to Estoril on the weekend.
Inter were a mixed bag on the road in the group stages with a victory, a draw and a defeat, that defeat did come at Bayern Munich though. Inter were beaten in the League 2-1 on the road at Spezia on the weekend and they have lost two of their last 3 League matches since beating Porto in the first leg.
I have a feeling that this second leg will be much more open than the first and over 2.5 goals hold some appeal at 19/20. At the end of the day though I fancy Porto to deliver the goods on their home ground and I am taking them to qualify at what looks to me a value price.
Suggested Bet: To qualify, Porto at 9/4
Manchester City v RB Leipzig – Click here to bet
These sides drew the first leg 1-1, a game where Manchester City started 9/10 favourites. City scored early through Mahrez taking the lead in the 27th minute, but Leipzig earned the point when Gvardiol netted in the 70th minute.
Manchester City are undefeated in their last 8 matches in all competitions winning their last 4 including a workmanlike 1-0 win away at Crystal Palace on the weekend in the domestic League.
RB Leipzig put in a strong performance on the weekend beating Mönchengladbach 3-0 at home and they won 2 of their 3 away matches in the group stages.
Manchester City have clearly been focusing on this game and I am expecting them to be too good for Leipzig and will back them to win by more than a goal.
Suggested Bet: Handicap, Manchester City -1.5 at 1/1
