Barcelona

It is a big weekend of European football as titles get down to the wire across the continent. Over in Germany, Bayern Munich can win the Bundesliga title with a win over Monchengladbach and boss Pep Guardiola has promised that they aren’t going to rest players as they look to close out the domestic season before meeting Atletico Madrid next week in the second leg of their UEFA Champions League semi final.

Bayern have won their last six Bundesliga matches in a row so are heavily backed to win on Saturday. Bayern have conceded just two goals in their last nine Bundesliga matches and have posted a W14 D0 L1 record at home this season in the German top flight.

The La Liga title remains a tight battle. Barcelona’s four match winless streak recently in the Spanish top flight took everyone by surprise and they head into the weekend level on points with Atletico Madrid, with Real Madrid just one point behind them. Barca have snapped back into form in some style, scoring fourteen unanswered goals in their last two league matches. Barcelona go to Real Betis on Saturday while Real Madrid, who have won their last five league matches, have a trip to Real Sociedad.

Bet Victor

Online betting site BetVictor are running a huge Champions League betting offer this week. Tuesday and Wednesday brings around the quarter final second legs and on Tuesday you have Manchester City trying to build in a 2-2 draw as they welcome PSG to the Etihad in what should be a close tie.

Tuesday’s other game sees Bundesliga outfit Wolfsburg head out to the Bernabeu to face Real Madrid. It is the Wolves who pulled off a shock 2-0 home win over The Whites in the first leg, but the big question is whether or not they have the defensive strengths to hold out for a place in the semi finals.

Then on Wednesday you have the mammoth Atletico Madrid v Barcelona clash from the Calderon. The first leg was a brilliantly intense affair, Barcelona coming from behind for the third time this season against Atleti to post a 2-1 win over them. Can Barca finish the job at the Calderon, or will Atletico repeat their 2013/14 quarter final success over the Catalans?

Wednesday sees Bayern Munich defend a narrow 1-0 first leg lead as they head out to Portugal to face Benfica, who gave a pretty good account of themselves against the German powerhouses last week. Can the Portuguese outfit find a way back into the tie?

Place a £10 pre-event double with one selection on each of the two Champions League on Tuesday and the bookmaker will give you a free bet bonus to use as a double on Wednesday’s two matches. This is a great offer from the bookmaker and when you register an account with them you can earn a free £25 bet as a welcome bonus from them!

Barcelona

Atletico Madrid v Barcelona Betting Preview

Barcelona have lost two of their last three matches as they appear to have hit just a sticky period of form. They had to come from behind in their UEFA Champions League quarter final first leg at home against Atletico Madrid as well and they benefited from the visitors going down to ten men and therefore tiring in the second half. Tempers were on the edge in a spiky first leg and the intimidating atmosphere of the Calderon for the return will keep this on a knife edge. Both sides have to put in a some big shifts in this one to make it through to the final four of the competition. This could be a thriller.

There is a great UEFA Champions League betting offer at online betting site BetVictor for this week’s action. Place a £10 pre-event double with one selection on each of the two Champions League on Tuesday and the bookmaker will give you a free bet bonus to use as a double on Wednesday’s two matches.

Atletico Madrid v Barcelona 13th April 2016

Atletico Madrid v Barcelona Betting Tips

Another tough duel between these two is on the cards. Atletico Madrid will be hoping to pull off a repeat of their 2013/14 UEFA Champions League campaign, when they beat Barcelona on aggregate during their run to the final. That time they drew at the Nou Camp in the first leg before winning 1-0 back on home soil. This time around, Atletico took the lead at the Nou Camp last week through Fernando Torres but then he got himself sent off and heaped extra pressure on the visitors as they lost 2-1. A repeat of that 1-0 home success though would be enough to send the battling Atleti through again against Barca thanks to their away goal. You can back an Atletico Madrid 1-0 Correct Score option at a 17/2 quote for the game. Atletico boss Diego Simeone has won 11 one of his previous 15 UEFA Champions League home matches at the Calderon, losing just one.

So a great record and Atletico, in their typical dogged way, were holding their own against Barcelona until Torres got sent off. Going down to ten men and chasing Barcelona’s ball possession its toll on them in the second half. Still, Atletico Madrid have a great home record going in Europe as they have lost only two of their last 28 European matches there at the Calderon. Of those 28 games in what sequence they have won 23 of them. Atletico have won seven and lost seven of their previous 18 European games against fellow Spanish sides. You don’t expect a high output from Atletico, because that’s not their style. They have only netted 12 goals in 9 UEFA Champions League matches this season. Antoine Griezmann is a 6/4 anytime goalscorer option. Atleti have never scored more than one goal in their nine Champions League/European Cup encounters with Spanish clubs. They have kept twelve clean sheets in their last 14 UEFA Champions League home matches though.

So Barcelona were handed a way back into this tie with Atletico going down to ten men in the first leg. Luis Suarez popped up with a double and the former Liverpool man has scored 15 goals in his last 17 UEFA Champions League matches. He can be backed at 6/4 to net in the game while Lionel Messi is an 8/11 option in the anytime goalscorer market. Messi has scored 25 goals in 29 games against Atlético Madrid, his favourite opponent alongside Sevilla. Barcelona last failed to score in a UEFA Champions League match against Atletico back at the Calderon in that 2014 meeting and they have only earned the one clean sheet in 13 matches against Spanish opposition in the European Cup.

They have a tremendous record though of success in European Cup quarter finals, of W14 L3. That’s some quality there of course and in matches against Spanish opposition they hold a W7 D6 L0 and part of this is a shoddy W1 D3 L6 record on the road. They are only W4 L6 in a record of European two-legged ties against fellow Spanish opposition. They have managed to get through on 38 of the 40 previous occasions of having won the first leg of a tie at the Nou Camp. You can back this to go under 2.5 goals for a price of 4/5 with online betting site Bet365. A Barcelona 2-1 correct score is an 8/1 punt and why is that interesting? These two have met three times this season, Atletico have opened the scoring in each, only for Barcelona to win 2-1.

Atletico Madrid v Barcelona Betting Odds

Barcelona 5/4, Draw 12/5, Atletico Madrid 5/2

Atletico Madrid v Barcelona Predictions

The spirited, dogged Atletico Madrid. Can they pull this off again against Barcelona? They actually have some appeal because the Calderon is an intimidating place for any visiting side and Barcelona have just gone off the boil with one win in their last four matches in all competitions. Atletico will stick in there and make this close. Back the home side to nick the win.

Barcelona

Barcelona v Atletico Madrid Betting Preview

Barcelona were caught out in a home defeat against rivals Real Madrid on the weekend in a massive La Liga clash. Now they have to deliver a response in this one against another tough opponent in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday night. They take on La Liga title contenders Atletico who will probably roll into the Nou Camp and dig in hard to give themselves something to play for back in the second leg. However, Atletico have won only one of their last 18 against the Catalans.

Barcelona v Atletico Madrid 2016

Barcelona v Atletico Madrid Betting Tips

Well, it has been a rare sight to see Barcelona lose this season. But a 2-1 home defeat in the league against Real Madrid happened on the weekend and it snapped an astonishing 38 match unbeaten stretch of form. Still, Barcelona have won their last six in a row against Atletico and would set a new record if they extended that to seven in the week. Barcelona and Atletico met in the 2013/14 UEFA Champions League quarter final, their only previous European meeting, and Atletico won 2-1 on aggregate then. Barcelona have in the quarter finals for the ninth consecutive season running and in seven of their last eight campaigns they have gone on to reach the semi finals. The only time they failed to reach the semi finals in that sequence was against Atletico Madrid in that 2013/14 season.

Barcelona can boast a tremendous record in the UEFA Champions League. Not only are they just one of two sides remaining unbeaten in this year’s tournament they have won 17 of their last 21 matches in the competition (D2 L2), having scored in each of those 21 fixtures. Their record gets even more impressive when you look at just their home form. They have lost only one of their last 37 UEFA Champions League games at the Nou Camp, winning 30 of those. Barcelona have a W14 L3 record from previous European Cup quarter final appearances. However, they trail W4 L6 in their previous two-legged European ties against Spanish clubs. It is even money that the Nou Camp fixture will go over 2.5 goals.

You have some serious scoring power with Barcelona of course. Let’s start with Lionel Messi who is 10/11 to net in the anytime goalscorer market. That is the same price actually as Luis Suarez and between them they have scored 42 of Barcelona’s last 51 UEFA Champions League goals. Remarkable input from them. Messi has scored 25 goals in 28 previous games against Atletico as well. Luis Suarez has netted five goals in four home games in the UEFA Champions League this season, while Neymar has scored eight goals in his last seven Champions League knockout stage matches. With Atletico expected to shut up shop, both teams to score in the match is a big 6/5 punt but Barcelona have only ever managed one clean sheet in 12 previous European Cup matches against fellow Spanish opposition.

Atletico Madrid have gone up against Spanish opponents eight times before in the Europa Cup and in none of those matches did they manage to score more than one goal in a game. So you wouldn’t expect them to bring a big attacking threat to this game and currently their game plan is build on defence and organization. They have taken 13 clean sheets in their last 17 UEFA Champions League matches just to highlight that. They have remained unbeaten away from home in the UEFA Champions League this season (W2 D2) but had a struggle against PSV Eindhoven in the last round, needing penalties to get through after things were goalless after both games. Atletico have a W7 D4 L6 record from previous European matches against fellow Spanish clubs. Striker Antoine Griezmann has scored 8 goals in his last 9 appearances and is a 5/2 option in the anytime goalscorer market. They had a nine match unbeaten streak snapped on the weekend with a league defeat.

Barcelona v Atletico Madrid Betting Odds

Barcelona 4/9, Draw 10/3, Atlético Madrid 13/2

Barcelona v Atletico Madrid Predictions

Atletico are all about defence, but you have to ask yourself whether it can stand up to Barcelona’s attack? Atletico know how to dig in and fight and frustrate but you would still, more often than not, back Barcelona’s immense attack to get the job done on the night. It may not be a high scoring spectacle but Barcelona can win this to nil.

Coral

Do league games get any bigger than Barcelona v Real Madrid? Probably not and the two heavyweight clash in a La Liga battle on Saturday evening. Barcelona are powering their way to the domestic title and start the game ten points clear of third placed Real Madrid. The Catalans have only lost one of their last seven at home against Real Madrid as well in the league, having won five of those seven.

So they have the form and they of course have what is an unstoppable forward line. Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar have been destroying defences all season and when Real Madrid and Barcelona met at the Bernabeu earlier in the season, Barcelona rolled off a thrilling 4-0 away victory. The Catalans are on a 22 match unbeaten streak in the league (W20, D2) having scored in every game in that sequence.

Ronaldo - Messi

Barcelona v Real Madrid Betting Preview

Another el Clasico rolls around on Saturday evening in La Liga. This is probably more about Barcelona’s march to the league title than it is anything else. The Catalan powerhouses go into the weekend nine points clear at the top of the table, with Real Madrid a point further back still from them. Can Barcelona drive home their advantage in the title race at the Nou Camp on Saturday or will Real Madrid be able to keep their fading hopes of a title alive?

Barcelona v Real Madrid 2016

Barcelona v Real Madrid Betting Tips

So Barcelona start ten points clear of third placed Real Madrid in this La Liga battle, with Atletico Madrid sandwiching the pair in second place. Barcelona have the form against los Merengues to suggest that they are going to bank another win against them. They have lost only one of their last seven home games against Real Madrid, winning five of those seven. They have also beaten their rivals in four of their last six games across all competitions too (L2). Barcelona are on a long unbeaten stretch of form, having put together a 23 match unbeaten streak in the Spanish top flight. They have won twelve of their last thirteen played (D1). Earlier in the season they went to the Bernabeu and hammered Real Madrid 4-0, a brace from Luis Suarez coming in the game.

In the anytime goalscorer market, Suarez and Lionel Messi are both 4/6 options for the game, with Neymar at 8/11. Yes, their some attacking power there and Luis Suarez is the top scorer for the club in the league this season with 26 goals. Messi has 22 and Neymar 21. Lionel Messi has netted in each of his last six home games in all competitions (eight goals in total). Barcelona’s home record in the top flight this season reads W14 D1 L0 and they have actually now gone 22 league games in a row at the Nou Camp without having suffered a defeat (W20, D2) and they have scored in each of those games as well. Interestingly though Barcelona have never beaten Real Madrid when they have been leading La Liga and have been 10 or more points ahead of the Whites (D1 L2).

So Real Madrid really have to roll out a win in this one to keep their faint title hopes alive. They have put together a four match winning streak in La Liga heading into this one and have scored sixteen goal in those four games, a good response to a home loss against Atletico Madrid at the end of February. That is actually their best sequence of league form under Zinedine Zidane. After a slow start to the season, Cristiano Ronaldo has come to life for them and has racked up a tally of 28 league goals this season and he is an 11/10 anytime goalscorer option for the game. Real Madrid are unbeaten in their last seven away games. With seventeen of the last eighteen meetings between them (all competitions) having gone over 2.5 goals, you can back this one to go the same way at 4/5 for over 3.5 goals and both teams to score is a short priced 2/5 option.

Barcelona v Real Madrid Betting Odds

Barcelona 4/7, Draw 7/2, Real Madrid 9/2

Barcelona v Real Madrid Predictions

Barcelona have been powering along this season but Real Madrid have just come back into some nice form of their own. The Catalans let slip a 2-0 lead against Villarreal last time out to finish in a 2-2 draw and they haven’t kept many clean sheets this year, so will get tested by Real Madrid. However, Barcelona should have the edge at home, both teams to score and a home win.

Champions League Betting

The quarter finals have been set for the UEFA Champions League and England’s last team standing, Manchester City get to take on PSG who knocked out Chelsea in the round of sixteen. However, the biggest tie of the UEFA Champions League Quarter Finals is definitely the all-Spanish clash of Barcelona v Atletico Madrid.

The first legs of the quarter finals will be played out on 5-6 April with the second legs coming up on 12-13 April.

Wolfsburg (Ger) v Real Madrid (Spa)

First leg: Wolfsburg v Real Madrid, Wednesday 6 April

Second leg: Real Madrid v Wolfsburg, Tuesday 12 April

This will actually be the first competitive meeting between the two clubs, with Wolfsburg having made it to the quarter finals for the first time in their history. The Germans have managed to take just one win from their four previous matches against Spanish sides which was a win over Villarreal 4-1 at home in the 2009/10 round of 32 second leg for a 6-3 aggregate success. Real Madrid hold a pretty solid record out in Germany which reads P28 W4 D6 L18. They did happen to lose their last match against German opposition though, going down 4-3 in a thriller at the Bernabeu against Schalke in last season’s round of sixteen. Real Madrid are 4/5 to take the win in the first leg, with Wolfsburg at 23/5 to record a home win.

Bayern Munich (Ger) v Benfica (Por)

First leg: Bayern München v Benfica, Tuesday 5 April

Second leg: Benfica v Bayern Munich Wednesday 13 April

Bayern Munich are unbeaten in their six previous matches played against Benfica, winning four of those side. It’s been a fair old while since they met each other though, the last coming together was back in 1995. Interestingly, each of the meetings have come exactly twenty years apart. Bayern ran into Portuguese opposition last season in the quarter finals, making their way past FC Porto after losing the first leg in Portugal. Bayern hold a home record against visitors from Portugal of W9 D2 L0. They have won their nine previous two-legged ties against Portuguese teams. Benfica have a record of W12 D13 L15 (W10 D7 L2 in Lisbon – W2 D6 L13 in Germany). They have a brilliant home record against German opposition in Lisbon recently, having won five of their last seven against German visitors. Bayern are 1/4 to win the first leg, with Benfica 16/1 to take the win in Germany.

Barcelona (Spa) v Atletico Madrid (Spa)

First leg: Barcelona v Atlético Madrid, Tuesday 5 April

Second leg: Atlético Madrid v Barcelona, Wednesday 13 April

What a mammoth clash this is. Barcelona are the outright favourites to go on and take the title, but this is tough opposition for them. The last time they came together in the UEFA Champions League, Atletico had the better of things with a 1-1 draw at the Nou Camp and a 1-0 win back on home soil. However, Barcelona have won each of the last six meetings between the two clubs, including both La Liga meetings this season. Barcelona’s Lionel Messi has netted 25 goals in 27 matches against Atletico in all competitions. Barcelona’s home record against Atlético in all competition is P110 W63 D28 L19. Atlético’s home record against Barça reads P110 W51 D23 L36. Barcelona are 1/2 to take a win in the first leg, with Atletico at 13/2.

Paris St-Germain (Fra) v Manchester City (Eng)

First leg: Paris v Manchester City, Wednesday 6 April

Second leg: Manchester City v Paris, Tuesday 12 April

These two have only ever come together once before and that was back in the 2008/09 UEFA Cup group stage when they played out a 0-0 draw in Manchester. Paris St Germain vanquished Chelsea in the last round with a 2-1 win both home and away. So now they have gone unbeaten in their last four games against English opposition. PSG’s overall record against English clubs is P13 W4 D5 L4 F14 A15. That UEFA Cup match against PSG was City’s only ever game against a side from Ligue 1. This is Manchester City’s first visit to the quarter finals of the UEFA Champions League having moved past Dynamo Kiev in the last round. PSG are 4/5 to take the win in the first leg, with Manchester City out at a big 9/2 price.

UEFA Champions League Outright Winner Odds

Barcelona 8/5, Bayern Munich 13/5, Real Madrid 5/1, PSG 7/1, Man City 16/1, Atletico Madrid 16/1, Wolfsburg 100/1, Benfica 100/1.

Barcelona v Arsenal UEFA Champions League Betting Preview

Well Arsenal’s season has come crashing down around them. Their poor league form has see them fall eleven points behind leaders Leicester, while they were also dumped out of the FA Cup by Watford on the weekend. They are odds on for a European exit on Wednesday night as well as they go to the Nou Camp to face Barcelona already 2-0 down in the tie. It’s not particularly likely that Arsene Wenger’s men will salvage this tie and more pressure could be heaped on the Arsenal boss in midweek.

Barcelona v Arsenal 2016

Barcelona v Arsenal Betting Tips

Barcelona are motoring along at the moment on all front. In the UEFA Champions League specifically they have won their last eight games and they are also on the hunt for a quarter final spot for the ninth consecutive season. The Catalans have come out on top in their two previous two-legged Champions League encounter with Arsenal, beating the Gunners in 2010 and in 2011. In the first leg of this meeting, Barcelona had to be patient at the Emirates, but eventually broke through with Lionel Messi putting the ball in the back of the net twice to give Barcelona a 2-0 lead going into the return leg. Barcelona are unbeaten in this season’s competition and it was back in May 2013 that they last lost a home game in the Champions League (3-0 against Bayern Munich). That has been the only occasion in the last twelve seasons that Barcelona have lost by at least a two goal margin or more at home. Big ask of Arsenal.

Not only that, that 3-0 defeat against Bayern back in 2013 has been Barcelona’s only loss at home in their last 36 UEFA Champions League matches. Of those 36 matches in that sequence incidentally, they have won 29 of them. Barcelona have also progressed 35 out of the 37 times they won the away first leg in UEFA competition so look in great standing. They have a brilliant home record as well against English clubs of W17 D11 L2, so the reading gets worse for Arsenal. Lionel Messi has scored eight goals in five UEFA Champions League against Arsenal and is 4/11 in the anytime goalscorer market, with Luis Suarez and Neymar both at 8/13. Between the three of them they have scored 39 of Barcelona’s 48 Champions League goals since last season. They are just in astounding form, having put together a 37 match unbeaten streak in all competitions and have won 18 of their last 19 (D1). They haven’t lost at the Nou Camp this season and have scored 21 goals in their last four home games. You can back this one to go over 3.5 goals for a price of 5/6 with online betting site Bet365.

How do Arsenal turn this around? Even if they themselves were firing on all cylinders it would be a big ask for them to go and overturn a 2-0 deficit at the Nou Camp. Arsenal haven’t been past the round of sixteen since the 2010 season in the UEFA Champions LEague and it’s unlikely that they are going to reach the quarter finals here. They have a poor W2 D3 L8 record from previous visits to Spain and it’s over a decade since they last took a city there. Also, Arsenal have never managed to overturn a home first-leg defeat in European competition. That home defeat, the fourth season running they have lost their home game in the round of sixteen, has really left them with a mountain to climb. They have won just one of their last seven (D2 L4) in all competitions and have failed to win in three previous visits to Nou Camp (D1 L2). The Gunners have shipped seven goals in their last trips there.

Barcelona v Arsenal Betting Odds

Barcelona 1/4, Draw 6/1, Arsenal 11/1

Barcelona v Arsenal Predictions

This should all end being routine for Barcelona. They would likely win this at something of a canter even if Arsenal were firing on all cylinders at the moment, which they certainly aren’t. The form of Barcelona is staggering at the moment and the goals that they can produce from their front three puts them on a completely different level. Home win and Arsenal may not get much of a look in in the match either.

Bet365

Finding a way to stop Barcelona is something that few sides have managed across all competitions this season. The Catalans have won thirteen of their last fourteen games in all competitions (D1) and they have won fifteen of their last nineteen UEFA Champions League matches as well.

So Lionel Messi, Neymar and Luis Suarez bring their incredible attacking prowess to North London on Tuesday in a game which could see goals flowing. The last seven meetings between the two clubs have averaged 3.86 goals per game and Barcelona have scored in their last 19 games in the competition, while Arsenal are on a 13 match scoring streak in the UEFA Champions League.

Barcelona

Arsenal v Barcelona Betting Preview

How do Arsenal stop the Barcelona juggernaut? It’s a big ask of the Gunners who need to produce the perfect game in North London on Tuesday night to perhaps just even keep themselves in the tie. Barcelona will be on the hunt for precious away goals and they of course bring the most enviable attack in the world with them. The Gunners did manage to snatch a surprise home win over Barca the last time they hosted them. Can they pull another one out of the bag?

Arsenal vs Barclona 2016

Arsenal v Barcelona Betting Tips

The Gunner moved through to the round of sixteen after finishing second in the group stage to Bayern Munich. So tough draws for them in the competition again and they are really staring down the barrel perhaps of another round of sixteen exit. They have gone out of this stage of the competition in the last five season. They are actually only one of two sides to have made it to the knockout stages of every season of the UEFA Champions League since the 2003/04, Real Madrid being the other one. But the Premier League outfit have really hit a wall in getting any further than the round of sixteen. Is getting the better of Barcelona over two legs, too big of an ask for the Gunners at the moment?

Arsenal hosted Barcelona back in February 2011 and managed to take a win over them in North London by a 2-1 scoreline, but lost 3-1 out at the Nou Camp. The Gunners are on a great scoring streak in the competition, having netted in each of their last thirteen UEFA Champions League matches. Alexis Sanchez, who has been involved in 58% of Arsenal’s Champions League goals this season, is a 5/2 quote in the Bet365 anytime goalscorer market with Olivier Giroud at 9/4. Overall, Arsenal’s record against Barcelona is W1 D2 L4 and their overall home record against La Liga opposition is W8 D3 L2. The Gunners have won five of eight two-legged UEFA ties against Spanish clubs. So not bad in the stats at all.

But they take on a Barcelona side who are in incredible form. They are running on a 32 match unbeaten streak in all competitions and they didn’t suffer a defeat (one of two clubs, the other being Real Madrid) in this season’s group stage. They did only post a W1 D2 record away from home though. Barcelona went to Man City in the first leg of their last two round of sixteen ties in the UEFA Champions League and won both of them so have winning form in England. Overall though, they have a W8 D8 L14 record on the road at English clubs. They have a W13 L10 record in two-legged ties against English clubs in all competitions.

So not a particularly strong record but they have the head to head advantage over Arsenal in the UEFA Champions League. Can the Gunners stop the power-triumvirate of Lionel Messi, Neymar and Luis Suarez? Suarez has scored 41 goals in 37 games this season and he, along with the other two are all even money quotes to score at anytime in North London on Tuesday night. They all have scoring form too, with Messi netting six goals in four games against Arsenal in the Champions League, while Neymar has seven in his last five UEFA Champions League knockout matches. Barcelona have scored in each of their last 19 UEFA Champions League games and have won 15 of those (D2 L2).

Arsenal v Barcelona Predictions

Tough draw for Arsenal and they aren’t too likely to come out on top. They are going to need something special just to stay in the tie and then they have to think about a trip to the Nou Camp. Barcelona are just in immense form at the moment and are likely to power their way to a win in a game which goes over 2.5 goals. The last seven meetings between these two have averaged 3.8 goals per game!
