Champions League Quarterfinalists to be Decided in Mid-Week MatchesPublished March 8, 2022 by Florin P
European giants lock horns once again for a place in the Champions League, with Liverpool, Manchester City, and Bayern Munich favorites to advance to the quarterfinals.
The flagship European competition has returned and this week, we shall know the names of the eight quarterfinalists. On Tuesday and Wednesday, some of the strongest teams in Europe are expected to build on the first leg results and book a place into the next stage of the Champions League. You can bet on these highly anticipated fixtures at high odds offered by bet365 sports and 1xBet sports.
Bayern Munich Seeks Convincing Win over Salzburg
The reigning German Champions find themselves in the unenviable position of needing to win the second leg to advance. Salzburg proved to be a tough nut to crack and they prevented the visitors from scoring more than one goal. This match is likely to take a different course, with over 3.5 goals to be scored. Bet365 Sports offers odds of 3/5 on this outcome while pricing a Bayern win by two goals or more at 1/2. Punters willing to take a leap of faith with Salzburg will be paid at 16/1 if they cause an upset.
Liverpool Has the Safety Net of the 2-0 First Leg Win
Inter travel to England knowing that they must come out firing on all cylinders to stand a chance. The 2-0 defeat in Milan has jeopardized their chances to advance to the quarterfinals. Recent results are far from encouraging and they will need to throw everything they’ve got at the hosts to even stand a chance. Liverpool is priced at 11/20 by bet365 sports, while a surprising away victory gets odds of 5/1. A worthy bet would be on over 2.5 goals to be scored at odds of 2/5 since Inter must take more chances.
Manchester City Expected to Cruise to another Win
The reigning Premier League champions are en route to another trophy and they expect to play in the Champions Final once again. They are the strongest team in the competition and the 5-0 win recorded in the first leg cements their status as favorites. Sporting Lisbon gave up any hopes of advancing to the quarterfinals and will focus on the domestic championship. Manchester City is likely to win the match, as reflected by the odds of 3/20 offered by 1xBet, but the odds on under 3.5 goals to be scored are tempting at 7/10.
Real Madrid Play a Must-Win Game against PSG
The Spanish champions held out for as long as they could in the first leg, but they allowed a late goal. Now they find themselves in hot water and must win against PSG to advance in the tournament. Home pitch advantage and the fact that they have no injured players helps, but it doesn’t give them the first chance. Instead, each team is priced at 17/10 by 1xBet and the draw is valued at 27/10. We like Real Madrid to win at these odds and we wouldn’t rule out a late game-winner, maybe after the 75th minute.
