Ace Football presents detailed betting tips on the upcoming Champions League games of the week.
As we prepare for another week of Champions League football, our experts take a look at the bookmakers’ predictions for the upcoming matches.
Let’s check out three betting tips for the second leg of the Champions League quarter-final games.
Goals likely on both sides when Inter host Benfica
Inter claimed an easy 2-0 win over Benfica in the first leg as they took a big step toward reaching the semi-finals.
It was the Nerazzurri’s first clean sheet in five games as Benfica lacked enough attacking edge to convert their chances. The hosts also hoped to get away with a 1-0 defeat before Romelu Lukaku doubled Inter’s lead with a late penalty.
We expect Benfica to push for a comeback at San Siro right from the start. The Portuguese giants could find the back of the net due to Inter’s defensive struggles but their attacks open up spaces for the hosts’ counter-attacks.
Back Napoli to beat Milan
As we expected last week, the first-leg game between Napoli and Milan was quite uneventful. The Rossoneri clinched a narrow win through Ismael Bennacer’s first-half goal to have an advantage for the second match.
Napoli seemed too cautious at San Siro last weekو but that will change when they meet their Serie A rivals on home soil. The possible return of Victor Osimhen will also be a huge boost to Napoli’s hopes of reaching the next round.
We expect the Blues to outscore their opponents with an attacking performance on Tuesday.
Expect goals when Bayern meet Man City
An uninspiring performance from Bayern saw City claim a massive 3-0 win in the first leg. Hoffenheim then held the Bavarians to a 1-1 draw in the Bundesliga as their slow start under Thomas Tuchel continued.
Bayern will have no choice but to push forward for goals against Man City. Similar to the previous game, the German giants will most likely find enough chances to score.
However, City’s fast players and their relentless attacking suggest we will see an open game with multiple goals on both sides.
