Juventus vs. Real Madrid

European giants Juventus and Real Madrid will play each other in the 1st leg of their quarter-final at Juventus Stadium on Tuesday in what is the repeat of last season’s final. Massimiliano Allegri's men will try to revenge last year’s 1-4 defeat and qualify further in the semi-final of the most important European competition. Real Madrid made history last year being the only side to win back-to-back Champions League trophies and they look determined to earn it for the 3rd consecutive time. Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo can become the 1st player in the history to score in 10 UCL appearances in a row. He has scored in each of his last 5 UCL mutual encounters against Serie A’s Juventus, netting 7 goals in the process, being priced at 2.6 with Unibet to score at least 1 goal against Juventus on the road. The hosts enter this match full of confidence after securing their top spot in Serie A by winning 3-1 against AC Milan last weekend. We expect another thrilling match between 2 of Europe’s finest. Both sides should have enough to contribute on the scoreboard and bet thusly at BMR's green-listed bookmakers.

Best pick for the match: Both teams to score at 1.9 with Pinnacle.

Sevilla vs. Bayern Munich

Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich travel to play La Liga 6th-placed Sevilla trying to solve the qualification issue from the 1st leg. Sevilla were about to pull off a huge upset last weekend against Barcelona, but they failed to secure the 2-0 lead, conceding 2 goals in the last 3 minutes of the game and being held to a 2-2 draw on their turf. On the other side, Bayern Munich were on fire last weekend destroying Dortmund in front of their fans 6-0 after a brilliant performance and teamwork. They are ready to demonstrate their force once again, beat Sevilla and approach the 2nd leg with an important win in their pocket. Sevilla are a tough side to play against and most of all when they are playing at home and despite the fact that Bayern Munich have lost in each of their last 5 games on Spanish soil, they are at least 1 level above Sevilla and their recent performance shows that they are among the competition favourites. You definitely can’t oppose the German giants, and when you find them priced at 1.7 take them blindly.

Best pick for the match: Bayern Munich to win at 1.7 with Betfair.

Liverpool vs. Manchester City

The Citizens are 1 step away from winning the Premier League title and a victory next weekend against their city rivals Manchester United will earn them the trophy. Their main objective is to win the Champions League, but for that to happen they must eliminate Liverpool. The hosts are the only side to win against Manchester City in the EPL all season long, beating them 4-3 on their turf back in January so it’s safe to say that Anfield is not a happy place for the Citizens. This is another reason why the visitors will try to win the 1st leg and revenge that heavy defeat. One thing is for sure: We will have an English side in the Champions League semi-finals. We expect a high-scoring affair with goals from both sides and at least 3 goals in the match but, we expect Manchester City to earn the victory. Pep Guardiola has implanted a winning mentality into his side and we expect City to adopt an attacking approach being eager to return home with a win.

Best pick for the match: Manchester City to win at 2.4 with Unibet.
