For the second season running, Manchester City have a round of sixteen tie in the UEFA Champions League against Barcelona. So the Citizens pay the price heavily for not having won their group,  but the fact that having gone winless in their first four group matches, the fact that they made it to the knockout stage was remarkable.

Wins over Bayern Munich and Roma saw City turn things around and now they get another crack at Barcelona, in what is just their second appearance in the knockout stage of the Champions League. In last year’s round of sixteen they had to take on the Catalans also, and the Citizens lost out 4-1 on aggregate, suffering a 2-0 loss at home.

Can Manchester City turn the tables this time around and produce a different outcome to what happened last season? Tough of course, but Sergio Aguero is in great scoring form in the competition and the Premier League outfit will need him at his best, as their defence could struggle under the pressure of Lionel messi, Neymar and Luis Suarez.

There is a huge enhanced odds offer running for man City v Barcelona betting at online bookmaker Ladbrokes as you can back Man City at 10/1 or Barcelona at 6/1 to take a win.

This is a repeat of the clash from a year ago when City ran into Barcelona in the Champions League round of sixteen. Manuel Pellegrini’s men will be hoping for a much better outcome though this time around, after losing 4-1 on aggregate against her Catalans last term. City lost 2-0 at home and 2-1 at the Nou Camp, in what was their first ever taste of Champions League knockout football.

Now, in their second foray past the group stage, they have been put on a collision course with Barcelona again. The Catalans scored fifteen goals in their six group stage matches, and with Lionel Messi having scored eight and assisted two of them, he will be the big danger man with support coming in from Luis Suarez and Neymar. Not a bad front line. Will they be able to damage a City back line which has kept just one clean sheet in their last eleven games in all competitions?

Champions League

A repeat of last season’s round of sixteen tie, but the Citizens won’t be hoping for a repeat of the outcome as they crashed out 4-1 on aggregate against the Catalans. Huge night for City as the enter into what is just their second appearance at this stage of the competition so far.

Manchester City v Barcelona Betting Tips

Can Manchester City get a bit closer to Barcelona than they managed to do at this point last season? City lost 2-0 at home and 2-1 at the Nou Camp. If you want to look at a positive for City, they are on a winning streak in the competition, having won their last two Champions League matches, having taken wins over Bayern Munich and Roma. Those wins saw Manuel Pellegrini’s men squeeze through to the knockouts for just the second time in their history, just when things had looked doomed for them. Those wins though did come after failing to win any of their previous six games in the competition.

Manchester city are likely to concede. They have posted just one clean sheet in their last 11 games in all competitions, and they have managed just one clean sheet in their last 13 home fixtures in the Champions League. That should send you over to Both Teams To Score and Over 2.5 Goals as serious options to consider. City’s last gasp win over Bayern Munich at the Etihad on Match Day Five was just their third home win in ten European home matches. Sergio Aguero has scored in both of his last two home fixtures against La Liga opposition ,and he has scored 10 goals in his last 9 Champions League outings. Aguero is running at 7/5 in the anytime goalscorer market.

But City will take on a Barcelona, with the Spaniards in good form. They have won their last four UEFA Champions League matches and they have good history going against English sides in the competition. Of the last seven Champions League knockout fixtures against English sides, Barcelona have won through on six of them. They have a tremendous strike force of course and have netted 15 goals in their six match so far, and 14 of those came from open play. Lionel Messi is even money favourites in the anytime goalscorer market, with Neymar and Luis Suarez both at 7/5 with online bookmaker Paddy Power.

Lionel Messi has fired in eight goals and has assisted two others in Barcelona’s 15 goal tally so far in this season’s Champions League. He is on a five match scoring streak in the tournament as well, never having made it six in a row. Barcelona have completed an impressive 90% of their Champions League passes this term and in each of their last 92 matches in the competition, they have been the ones who have dominated possession. However, their slight blip is their away form. They have only managed to win one of their last seven away matches in the knockout stage of the tournament (D2 L4), but that was against Manchester City in February 2014.

Manchester City v Barcelona Betting Odds

Barcelona 23/20, Man City 5/2, Draw 13/5

Manchester City v Barcelona Predictions

The Citizens haven’t looked strong enough lately to really repel the Catalans. Barcelona slipped up at home in La Liga on the weekend, but their overall form remains strong and they have goals and options up front in them. Expect both teams to score in the game, but Barcelona still look the more likely to come away with a first leg advantage. They are a little bit of a different beast this time, a little more direct in getting forward, and that should trouble City’s defence.

Atletico Madrid v Barcelona Copa del Rey Betting Preview

It’s back to the Vicente Calderon for the second leg of the Copa del Rey clash. After seeing off Real Madrid in the last round thanks to a good home win, Diego Simeone’s men need to pull one out of the bag against Barcelona, who they trail 1-0 to from the first leg at the Nou Camp.

This has been a very low scoring fixture in recent times, so Bet365’s 0-0 Bore Draw insurance could offer some good value. Place a pre-match wager on the correct score, scorecast or half time/full time market and if the game ends up being goalless, then you will get your lost stake refunded as a free bet. New customers registering an account can get up to a free £200 bet as a welcome bonus.

Atletico Madrid v Barcelona Betting Tips

The Copa del Rey has been fantastic against this season, having already produced a Madrid derby which Atletico managed to win through against Real. The backbone of that was a 2-0 home win over Real in their last home match in the competition. They need that exact scoreline against Barcelona on Wednesday night to get through, as they are a goal down to the Catalans. Atletico Madrid are unbeaten in their last three home matches against Barcelona, so they do actually have home form on their side (W1 D2). Simeone’s men will have to come out and press at some point, but will that open them up to the counter attack?

The home form of Atletico Madrid this season has been immense. They have only lost one home match since the start of the season in all competitions, posting an overall W14 D2 L1 record at the Vicente Calderon. Diego Simeone’s side are known for their defensive efforts and they have kept clean sheets in two of their last three. Their big scorers options in their anytime goalscorer market are Mario Mandzukic at 7/4, with Fernando Torres at 2/1 and Antoine Griezmann at 9/4. Of course, dominating the goalscorer markets are the Barcelona trio of even money favourite Lionel Messi, 7/4 quote Luis Suarez and 13/10 option Neymar.

The pace on the break of the Barcelona trio is what the Atletico defence will have to worry about if they start pressing forward themselves too much. The Catalans have lost just the one of their last 14 matches played against Atletico Madrid in all competitions, and they are in a rich vein of form at the moment as well. Barcelona have won their last six played in all competitions and are in devastating form up front. They have scored 23 goals in their last six matches, having conceded just the one in that process.

Pretty tough to argue with that kind of form. In their last three away matches they have scored a total of fourteen goals in total.  They have scored a total of fourteen goals in their last three away matches too. Having faced Atletico twice already this season (both times at the Nou Camp) and having come away with two wins, you would expect them to come through with enough to at least get the minimum of the draw that they need.

Atletico Madrid v Barcelona Betting Odds

Barcelona 6/5, Athletic 5/2, Draw 12/5

Atletico Madrid v Barcelona Predictions

One of the best ways to cover the match will be looking under 2.5 goals. Remarkably, just one of the last eight meetings between them have gone over 2.5 goals (the 3-1 win for Barca at the Nou Camp earlier in La Liga season). So back a low scoring, tight affair, despite all the attacking talent that will be on display.

Messi - Neymar (Barcelona)

Barcelona v Atletico Madrid Betting Preview

A dip into La Liga sees a tremendous Barcelona v Atletico Madrid betting clash on Sunday. Both are level on points in second and third in La Liga respectively and therefore both just one point off leaders Real Madrid. So huge points at stake in this one in the title race. Will Barcelona be able to do something they failed to do in six attempts last season, that is beat Atletico?

It is #PPJUICYJANUARY at online bookmaker Paddy Power who have a massive enhanced odds promotion running for Sunday. In a boost to cumulative odds of 14/1 in the offer, you can back Arsenal, Manchester United and Barcelona to win the respective fixtures on the weekend and land yourself a huge payout with Paddy Power in this enhanced odds offer. See here for full details.

Barcelona v Atletico Madrid Betting Tips

Barcelona will be looking for a league bounce back after they lost to David Moyes’ Real Sociedad last weekend. They came under fire too for not having started Lionel Messi in the game (sparking rumours of him leaving), but Barcelona hit their stride again during midweek when they beat Elche 5-0 in the Copa del Rey, Messi netting one from the spot. Worth having a punt on Messi to score, as only against Sevilla (18) has he scored more goals than he has against Atletico Madrid (17) and he is even money in the anytime goalscorer market, joint favorite with Luis Suarez.

Suarez still only has one league goal to his name for Barcelona, with Messi (15) and Neymar (11) carrying the can for them. Barcelona also have Neymar and El Haddadi trading strong at 5/6 in the anytime goalscorer market. The Catalans haven’t lost any of their last eight La Liga match ups against Atletico (W6 D2) but couldn’t get the better of them last season. Barcelona of course have massive strengths at home, and have put up a W7 D0 L1 record there, winning their each of their last three in a row at the Nou Camp, having scored exactly five goals in each.

This fixture has a history of goals in it, because the last fifteen meetings in La Liga between the two have returned a whopping 63 goals at an average of 4.2 per game. Over 2.5 goals is 4/5 quote at online betting site Paddy Power for Sunday’s clash. The Red-and-Whites went six matches unbeaten against Barcelona last season in all competitions (W1 D5), winning the league title with a draw at the Nou Camp, and they knocked them out of the Champions League. So does that make them value for at least a point on Sunday? Atletico are strong defensively, and can boast their own strengths going forward, even with fernando Torres back with them.

Mario Mandzukic and Antoine Griezmann are solid options in he anytime goalscorer market, with Frenchman Griezmann being bang in form having scored five goals in Athleticos last two league matches. Atletico have conceded at a rate of under one goal per game on the road, and have won their last two away from home in the Spanish top fight, part of an overall W5 D1 L2 away record this term. They have enough to frustrate Barcelona again, and won’t be short on confidence after beating rivals Real Madrid in the first leg of their Copa del Rey clash during the week.

Barcelona v Atletico Madrid Betting Odds

Barcelona 4/7, Draw 10/3, Atletico Madrid 9/2

Barcelona v Atletico Madrid Predictions

Tempting to go for a draw, because Atletico have proven that they are no pushovers, and Barcelona couldn’t crack them last term. However, Barcelona are strong at home, and are still worth having a punt on to come away with the three points. Overall, they have the recent home form against the Red and Whites to deliver the goods.

Champions League

A rematch of one of last season’s round of sixteen ties in the UEFA champions League is on the cards, as Man City were once again drawn against Spanish giants Barcelona.

City have had little luck with their draws in the Champions League in their relatively short history in the competition, and they have drawn another short straw this time around.

City pay the price for failing to win their group, although again it was a tough one as they had to battle with Bayern Munich, Rome and CSKA Moscow. Back to back wins over Bayern Munich and Rome saw City edge through in second place behind the Bundesliga outfit from their group.

So City’s success has come with a heavy price tag because they are now charged with trying to beat Barcelona to progress to thee quarter finals.

It has been a strange Champions League draw for City, because they faced CSKA Moscow and Bayern Munich in the group stage, just as they had done last year, and now face Barcelona in the round of sixteen, again, just as they did last season.

City came unstuck in last season’s round of sixteen against Barcelona, losing 4-1 on aggregate against the Catalans. Barcelona won 2-0 in Manchester and then finished the job with a 2-1 win back at the Nou Camps. Goals from Lionel Messi and Dani Alves in both fixtures was enough for the Catalans to progress, with Vincent Kompany getting City’s consolation in the tie.

City are 5/2 underdogs for the first leg of the round of sixteen meeting, which will be played in Manchester on February 24th. Barcelona are even money at online betting site Bet365 to pick up the away win and the Spaniards are 4/11 odds on To Qualify from the tie.

The Citizens have only ever managed three wins from eleven previous meetings with Spanish opponents, losing five of those eleven. Two of those victories came home and away against Villarreal CF in the 2011/12 group stage.

As for Barcelona, their win in Manchester last season, snapped a run of five away games against English sides without a win for the Blaugrana (D2 L3), a sequence that included semi-final eliminations against Manchester United in 2008 and Chelsea in 2012.

Barcelona’s record away at English clubs though isn’t great, winning just seven of their 29 away games played against English sides, losing 14 of those. However, they have massive strength at home, because they have won fifteen and lost just two of 28 home fixtures at the Nou Camp against English opposition.

Barcelona have also beaten English clubs in three UEFA Champions League finals: Arsenal FC (2006) and Manchester United FC (2009, 2011).

When you make a wager through a mobile/tablet device at online betting site Bet365 for the first time, the bookmaker will match the value of that first stake with a free bet for you, up to the maximum value of £50! This is the Bet365 On The Move 100% Bonus which is well worth checking out!

Real Madrid v Barcelona Betting Preview

The much anticipated first El Clasico of the season. Which way will it swing? It was honours to Barcelona in the two La Liga meetings last season and the Catalans will be putting an unbreached defence on the line at the Bernabeu. Will the might of Cristiano Ronaldo and his immense goalscoring form, be able to take maximum points for Real against their rivals? Madrid go as 11/8 shots for the win, with Barcelona at 7/4 and the draw at 13/5.

Online betting site Betfred have this one marked for their Double Delight/Hat Trick Heaven promotion. Back a winning first goalscorer selection in the match, and if they go on to score a second in the game, then Betfred will pay out at double odds. If your winning first goalscorer selection goes on to score a hattrick, then you will get treble your original first goalscorer odds!

Real Madrid v Barcelona Betting Tips

Carlo Ancelotti’s men had a slow start to the season, losing two of their first three league matches. But then Cristiano Ronaldo came back to full fitness and they have not looked back since. The former Manchester United man has hit a remarkable 15 goals in La Liga this season in the seven league matches that he has appeared in. Truly an astonishing and record breaking goal scoring start to the season. He has now actually scored in each of his last eleven games played in all competitions, including a stunner at Anfield against Liverpool in the Champions League during the week.

Ronaldo looks an obvious 4/1 choice in the first goalscorer market for the match. However, Real madrid have won just two of their last 12 league meetings with Barcelona, so the result is up for question here. Yes, Real Madrid are in stunning form at the moment, an eight match winning streak in all competitions, but do they have enough to beat Barcelona? They clearly have goals, averaging five per game over their last five league matches, but they haven’t gone up against anything like Barcelona’s defence.

Barcelona have recorded eight clean sheets on the bounce since the start of the season. They are one away from setting their longest run of clean sheets in their league history. Barcelona are unbeaten in 13 league games (W9 D4) and they are unbeaten in 11 league games against sides from Madrid. So they have a bit of history and form going for them, and of course that incredible defence this season. They also have Neymar producing this season, and between them Neymar (eight) and Lionel Messi 9seven) have matched Cristiano Ronaldo’s tally. Messi is 5/1 and Neymar 6/1 in the first goalscorer market.

You would be right to expect goals in this one. Both sides have scored in each of the last 16 Clasicos. Only one of the last fifteen have gone under 2.5 goals. The last fixture between them when both sides failed to score was in the 2011 Champions League semi finals, with Barcelona winning 2-0 at the Bernabeu. It has the makings of a classic. Real Madrid are Europe’s top scorers, Barcelona the only side in Europe not to have conceded a goal this season. A real heavyweight clash.

Real Madrid v Barcelona Betting Odds

Real Madrid 11/8, Barcelona 7/4, Draw 13/5

Real Madrid v Barcelona Predictions

Really tough game to call. Cristiano Ronaldo is at the heart of everything that Real do. That was proven when he wasn’t fit at the start of the season and they struggled. Barcelona have looked methodically brilliant this season under Luis Enrique. They aren’t going to be steamrolled in the match and it may just be worth edging towards a draw. Barcelona would be happy enough with that.

European Football Betting

Real Madrid have been one of the explosive hot tickets of the season. Since Cristiano Ronaldo got his season up and running, Carlo Ancelotti’s men haven’t looked back. The former Manchester United man has been in astounding scoring form in La Liga, breaking the record for the most prolific goal scoring start to a new season in the Spanish top flight. Real Madrid have been the ones grabbing all the headlines and they are going as favourites for the weekend’s El Clasico, the first of the 2014/15 season.

But under new manager Luis Enrique, Barcelona have been going about their business in a very quiet, yet very efficient manner. It has been a remarkable start from them and punters have good reason to get behind the visitor to the Bernabeu on Sunday, because they have a formidable defence which has not conceded a single goal in eight league matches so far this season. That is eight clean sheets on the bounce, and is a huge improvement over last season’s efforts. With Barcelona winning both La Liga meetings last season, they do look some good value.

They haven’t been as prolific as Real Madrid in front of goal, who have scored 30 goals in eight games, but Barcelona have returned 22 though, which is a rate of 2.75 per game. The big difference between the two sides, and what has happened to Barcelona this season, is the step up in production of Neymar. He has been clicking far better with the team, has looked sharper than at any stage during his debut season, and now Barcelona have both he and Lionel Messi ticking along with goals.

Real Madrid largely rely on Cristiano Ronaldo for his heavy input, as he has scored half of Real Madrid’s league goals this season. That’s right, half. Barcelona have been upgraded in very subtle ways under Enrique and their defence could be the key factor in this. Real Madrid have conceded at over a goal per game this season, and that is where this one may be won or lost. If the Barcelona back line can stay intact, then they have Messi and Neymar to do the damage up front. The game could also see the return of Barcelona new boy Luis Suarez following his lengthy ban after his World Cup bite.

They aren’t going to care if it is a 1-0 win on the road at their biggest rivals. As long as they get maximum points, then that is all the Catalans will be concerned about. The value on them is not to be dismissed for the first El Clasico of the season, and of course it is probably worth going over 2.5 goals for the meeting and only one of the last fifteen meetings between them have done so. Barcelona have the defence. Can it withstand Cristiano Ronaldo? If they mark him out of the game, (and Real Madrid’s early season form without him, proved that he carries them) then Barcelona could be fantastic value to avoid defeat.

Champions League

The return of the UEFA Champions League heads back into the spotlight on September 16th, 2014 with the first round of Match Day one games. Leading the way into the new season of Europe’s top club competition is reigning champions Real Madrid who are 7/2 favourites at online betting site Bet365.

Will they hold on to their title?

Will it be another case of who will fill the fourth semi final spot alongside Barcelona, Madrid and Bayern Munich?

Real Madrid 7/2 favourites at Bet365 Champions League betting

The Spanish giants of course got stronger through the summer, adding the star attraction of James Rodriguez to the already formidable attack of Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema. Madrid have the depth and the quality to go far again, and punters haven’t been afraid to get behind them again this season for a repeat success. There shouldn’t be any issues for them in the group stage, going alongside Liverpool, Basel and Ludogorets. Real Madrid have won the European Cup ten times now, easily Europe’s most successful club. They waited for over a decade to land it last season, it probably won’t be long before they get their hands back on it.

Bayern Munich 4/1
There aren’t going to be many punters writing off Bayern Munich to make a run to at least the final four this season, but there are reservations about them this term. They came unstuck in the semi finals last season, hammered by Real Madrid on that occasion, by Pep Guardiola’s men haven’t looked their normal prolific selves coming out of the gate in the new season. So there is a bit of solidifying for Munich to do and the price of 4/1 on them at Bet365 may be a bit shorter than punters would like to see, considering Barcelona and Chelsea are only a couple of points adrift of them.

Barcelona 6/1
The Catalans fell a long way short of their best last season, when they were outworked by Atletico Madrid in the quarter finals. They have a new man at the helm in Luis Enrique and with a couple of clean sheets wins to open with (not conceding a single shot on target in either), could he be the man to inspire and inject new life into the La Liga outfit? Their ethics and style haven’t changed and they will be more than a handful for most of the competition that will come up against them in the tournament. They may have lost some of that imposing nature, but they could be big value as 6/1 shots.

Chelsea 6/1
Out of the four English clubs taking part in the competition this season, only Chelsea are deemed by the bookmakers to have a realistic shot at getting close to the title. They have the tactical astuteness of Jose Mourinho, a huge upgrade in quality with the additions of Cesc Fabregas and Diego Costa, which could see them genuinely go a step further than their semi final exit last term. With everyone else in the field, including Man City, Arsenal and Liverpool all bar 14/1, then punters will likely be eyeing up their betting options as a one in four shot between the big guns.

Champions League betting win bonuses

For Europe’s big club games, there are fantastic win bonuses to be picked up on accumulators. Land a treble and you will get a 5% bonus, and the sliding scale will take you all the way up through a 20% bonus for sixfold, through to a 100% bonus on a winning 14 fold.
