Champions League 2018/19 Quarter Final Draw & Winner Odds

Manchester City
The quarter-final and the semi-final draws for this season’s UEFA Champions League was made on Friday. With all four of the English sides still left standing after some epic round of sixteen action, the draw has thrown together some mouth-watering clashes. Tottenham and Manchester City will meet in the final eight in what should be a full-blooded contest. Manchester City are favourites to win the tournament outright, but in last season’s quarterfinals, they slipped out of the competition at the hands of fellow Premier League side Liverpool. Liverpool have received the easiest tie that they could have gotten as they will face off against rank-outsiders Porto. Manchester United have drawn the short straw through as they have to take on the might of Barcelona in their quarter-final tie.

Champions League Winner Odds*

Manchester City 2/1 Juventus 10/3 Barcelona 7/2 Liverpool 4/1 Man Utd 20/1 Spurs 25/1 Ajax 40/1 Porto 100/1 * (betting odds taken from bet365 on March 15th, 2019)

Ajax v Juventus To Qualify Odds*

Juventus 1/5 Ajax 1/3 * (betting odds taken from bet365 on March 15th, 2019) The fact that Ajax are here is tremendous. They have the youngest average age of all the squads left in the tournament. In the last round they were given little hope as they were drawn against Real Madrid, the Spaniards having won the Champions League for the last three seasons running. However, an astonishing 4-1 win by the Dutch side at the Bernabeu saw the title holders crash out. Ajax did also hold their own against Bayern Munich in this season’s groups stage as well. Will they be able to handle Juventus? The Old Lady recovered from a 2-0 away defeat in the first leg of their round of sixteen tie against Atletico Madrid. Cristiano Ronaldo was the hero of the day as he fired off a hat trick to get Juventus through after a fantastic comeback in Turin. That’s what he is still capable of. The Italians have won five of the last six games against Ajax and are currently undefeated in their last ten against the Dutch side. Ajax are at home for the first leg, but it is Juve who are the even-money favourites to win that fixture* (betting odds taken from bet365 on March 15th, 2019) Head-to-head in UEFA competition: 6 Juventus wins, 2 Ajax wins, 4 draws

Liverpool v Porto To Qualify Odds*

Liverpool 2/9 Porto 3/1 * (betting odds taken from bet365 on March 15th, 2019) Liverpool will have a big smile across their faces after the draw. They got paired up against the tournament outsiders FC Porto. This is a highly favourable draw for the Reds, which raises their chances of making a return to the semifinals. The Reds covered themselves in glory in midweek as they took a win at Bayern Munich in the second leg of their contest against the German champions, following a 0-0 first-leg draw at home. Porto saw off Roma in their round of sixteen tie and the Portuguese side will be looking for their first ever win over Liverpool in the competition. Porto haven’t beaten an English side in a knockout tie in Europe since their 2003/04 win over Manchester United. Liverpool are 1/3 to win the first leg at Anfield* (betting odds taken from bet365 on March 15th, 2019). Head-to-head in UEFA competition: 3 Liverpool wins, 0 Porto wins, 3 draws

Tottenham v Manchester City To Qualify Odds*

Man City 1/6 Tottenham 4/1 * (betting odds taken from bet365 on March 15th, 2019) The all-Premier League clash that is going to guarantee that we see one English side in the semi-finals at least. Manchester City are likely not going to be too unhappy with the draw really. It’s probably better to be taking on a side they know well than in trying to figure out other opposition. Man City took a 1-0 win at Wembley in the Premier League over Spurs earlier this season. In the round of sixteen Manchester City hammered Bundesliga side Schalke 10-2 on aggregate, posting a 7-0 win at the Etihad in the second leg. They have lost their last two European knockout ties against English opposition though. Will they be able to handle Spurs? It’s been some campaign from Spurs, having come through such a tough group in the first place to reach the knockouts. But they impressed highly in banked a 4-0 win over Borussia Dortmund in the round of sixteen, winning both legs. The Citizens are 4/6 favourites to open with a win in the first leg away from home* (betting odds taken from bet365 on March 15th, 2019). In 156 competitive meetings, City have won 61 to Spurs' 60, with 35 draws.

Barcelona v Manchester United

Barcelona 1/4 Manchester United 11/4 * (betting odds taken from bet365 on March 15th, 2019) Not the draw that Manchester United would have wanted in the quarterfinals. After their heroics against PSG in the round of sixteen, the Red Devils will have wanted something a little more favourable. Manchester United lost the first leg of their tie at home against PSG 2-0 and looked a clear second best. But they became the first ever side in the history of the Champions League to overturn a first leg 2-0 deficit by winning out in Paris thanks to a last-minute penalty via VAR by Marcus Rashford. It doesn’t get much more dramatic than that. But this is now Barcelona who they are going up against. The Catalans cruised to a 5-1 win over Lyon in midweek at the Nou Camp in their round of sixteen tie. They are still one of the clear front runners for the tournament outright as they look for their sixth title. They are going to be a huge danger here with the second leg back at the Nou Camp. So it is going to be all about what United can dig out on home soil against Messi and co. The Red Devils have only won one of their eight previous meetings with Barcelona in the European Cup/Champions League. United are 9/4 underdogs for the first leg at OT* (betting odds taken from bet365 on March 15th, 2019). Head-to-head in UEFA competition: 4 Barcelona wins, 3 United wins, 4 draws

Juventus are the only ones who beat them in home form and defensive record this season.

Juventus collected 2-0 Coppa Italia win at Bologna on the weekend, their first action of 2019 because of the winter break. It means that they have remained undefeated in domestic games this season. They are holding a seven-point lead at the top of Serie A as they drive towards another title, winning 17 of their 19 games this season (D2). Juventus have won the Italian Super Cup seven times in their history. They have won each of the last six editions on the bounce which is a crazy statistic. Back in the 2016 edition, they met Milan in the Super Cup and that went to a penalty shootout after a 1-1 draw. Note that the Italian Super Cup isn't played in Italy very much anymore. This edition comes from the King Abdullah Sports City in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.

  • Both clubs have won the title seven times before
  • Juve are unbeaten in all domestic games this season
 

Milan News and Form

Milan have also won the Super Cup seven times in their history, but can they prevent Juventus from becoming the all-time leaders by upsetting the odds? Milan were the last side to win the Super Cup (back in 2012 against Inter) before Juventus went on this current streak of titles. On the domestic front in the league, AC Milan are in a scrap for a top-four finish and nothing else. They were struggling for wins over the last couple of months of 2018. They have only managed to go W1 D4 L2 in their last seven games in all competitions currently. Milan came back from the winter break on the weekend with 2-0 extra time win out at Sampdoria in the Coppa Italia. In last season’s Coppa Italia final they lost 4-0 against Juventus, but their appearance there gives them this shot at the Super Cup. It is going to be a big ask for them to overcome the Old Lady.

They are on a three-match winning streak there since their 1-1 draw against Genoa, the only game in which they have dropped home points. Juventus have scored 17 goals in their nine home games.

Sampdoria are actually unbeaten in six fixtures now (W4 D2) so are going well. Their overall away form in Serie A this term is W3 D3 L3. In their last away game, they put a good 4-2 win on the board at Empoli. It is worth a look at their form against current top-seven sides this season away from home.

They have been involved in plenty of high-scoring affairs. 44% of their away games have actually gone above 4.5 goals. They collected a clean sheet in three of their nine away games played so far.

There often comes a heavy price for not winning a Champions League group and both Liverpool and Manchester United have found that out. Liverpool will be going up against German giants Bayern Munich in their round of sixteen clash in the Champions League, while Manchester United have to try and deal with PSG. Man City and Spurs, like Liverpool, will face German opposition in Schalke and Borussia Dortmund respectively. The first legs of the round of sixteen take place on 12-13 and 19-20 February 2019.

Round of Sixteen Draw

Schalke v Manchester City Atletico Madrid v Juventus Manchester United v Paris St-Germain Tottenham v Borussia Dortmund Lyon v Barcelona Roma v Porto Ajax v Real Madrid Liverpool v Bayern Munich

Manchester United v PSG

Manchester United's group stage campaign wasn’t exactly filled with glory for them and after not chasing top spot on matchday six, they have paid a heavy price. They go up against French champions PSG, who traded home wins with Liverpool in the group stage. This will be United’s first ever encounter with PSG. With all of the struggles the Red Devils have had this season, being a long way off the pace in the Premier League title race and heavily criticized for performances, it is PSG who are 3/10 favourites To Qualify* (betting odds taken from bet365 on December 17th, 2018 at 12:16 pm)

Liverpool v Bayern Munich

The Reds finished second in their group behind PSG. Reds boss Jurgen Klopp is no stranger to meetings with Bayern Munich. He has actually had more managerial duels with Bayern Munich than any other club during his career (29), thanks to his time with Borussia Dortmund. Klopp’s record incidentally against Bayern is W9 D4 L16. The last time that Bayern and Liverpool met was in the 2001 UEFA Super Cup which Liverpool won 3-2. Bayern aren’t having the greatest of seasons under Niko Kovac, sitting only in third in the Bundesliga. But they made light work of their group stage campaign to be fair. Liverpool are the 3/4 favourites To Qualify* (betting odds taken from bet365 on December 17th, 2018 at 12:16 pm).

Schalke v Man City

Group winners Manchester City will be heading into a duel with Schalke for the first time in their history. The Citizens are the outright favourites to win this season's Champions League and this is a pretty comfortable draw for them by the looks of it. Schalke finished second in Group D behind Porto and with Man City responding so well from a Match Day One loss against Lyon to top theirs, it is little surprise to City sitting a strong 1/33 odds favourites to win this tie outright* (betting odds taken from bet365 on December 17th, 2018 at 12:16 pm).

Tottenham v Borussia Dortmund

The Group Stage campaign was a rough ride for Tottenham and the round of sixteen draw doesn’t get any easier. The Lilywhites took just one point from their opening three group stage matches but managed to still fight back and squeeze their way through to the knockout stage. A draw at Barcelona in their final group match was just enough for them to beat out Inter. There could be rough waters ahead for Spurs in this time as Dortmund are in tremendous form this season. BVB are leading the Bundesliga by nine points and topped their Champions League group ahead of Atletico Madrid. In last season’s Group Stage Spurs and Dortmund were together, Tottenham winning 3-1 at home and 2-1 away. You can take an early price of 10/11 on either To Qualify* (betting odds taken from bet365 on December 17th, 2018 at 12:16 pm).

Ajax v Real Madrid

Real Madrid threw out some dodgy performances in the group stage, but they still managed to win that group. The reigning champions will fancy their chances against Ajax. The Spaniards have won their last six games on the bounce against Ajax. In that spell of six games, Real Madrid have fired off 20 goals and have conceded just the 2. The overall head to head between the two famous European clubs stands at 7-4 with one drawn game in favour of Real Madrid. Their most recent meeting was back in the 2012 group stage, with Real Madrid winning both meetings 4-1. Ajax qualified in second place from this season’s Group Stage behind Bayern Munich. Real Madrid are the 1/8 favourites To Qualify* (betting odds taken from bet365 on December 17th, 2018 at 12:16 pm).

Atletico Madrid v Juventus

This is the real heavyweight showdown of the round of sixteen. How did we get here? It is because Atletico Madrid could only finish second to Borussia Dortmund in the group stage (level on points). So they have gotten the short straw of the draw as they have to go up against Juventus. The Old Lady topped their group, despite a shock home loss against Manchester United and away loss at Young Boys. This should be some duel. Atletico Madrid are unbeaten in their last nine games against Italian opposition. That includes their 2014 group stage meetings against Juve which Atletico won 1-0 at home and took a 0-0 in Turin. Juventus lead the overall head to head 4-2 with the one drawn game. You can only imagine that this is going to be as tight as it gets but Juventus are 2/5 odds-on To Qualify* (betting odds taken from bet365 on December 17th, 2018 at 12:16 pm).

Lyon v Barcelona

Lyon finished second in their Group Stage campaign behind Manchester City. To their credit, they took four points from their two games against the English champions. How will they fare against Barcelona? They have met three times before in the UEFA Champions League, Barcelona holding an unbeaten W4 D2 record from the six matches. Four of those six games produced at least three goals in them and Lyon haven’t earned a clean sheet against their Spanish counterparts before. Barcelona went about their business in the group stage quietly, efficiently and at some times brilliantly. They topped their group ahead of Spurs, remaining unbeaten. Barcelona are the 1/14 odds-on favourites To Qualify* (betting odds taken from bet365 on December 17th, 2018 at 12:16 pm).

Roma v Porto

FC Porto were group winners over Schalke and this is a repeat of last season’s playoff meeting in the Champions League. It was Porto who came through that tie 4-1 on aggregate so they can take that positive into this one. Those were the only two previous games between the two clubs. Roma scrapped their way through to second place in Group G behind Real Madrid but didn’t have it all that easy at all in a W3 L3 record there. If there hadn’t been a draw between Plzen and CSKA Moscow back on matchday one as it turned out, Roma would have been in qualification trouble at the end. You can take 10/11 on either To Qualify* (betting odds taken from bet365 on December 17th, 2018 at 12:16 pm).

Rest of Europe Predictions and Acca Tips – 11th November 2018

Barcelona
Rest of Europe Tips & Odds - 11th November 2018 The action heats up again across Europe this weekend and one of the real highlights of the continental action is going to be Borussia Dortmund v Bayern Munich from the Bundesliga. Check out our full coverage of that. Here we take a look around at some of the other top games going down on Sunday, November 11th from across Europe for our predictions and acca tips. Remember this is the final action before the next international break.

Monaco v PSG - 8.00 pm

What an earth-shattering mess Monaco are in at the moment. They were hammered by Club Brugge in the Champions League in midweek and they are stuck on just one league win this season in the French top flight. That win came back in August as well. Monaco are ten games without a win now in the league against after a loss out at Reims last weekend and new boss Thierry Henry has a minefield ahead of him. They take on PSG this weekend, who are the current league leaders with a perfect record of 12 wins from 12. They are scoring for fun as well with 41 goals in their 12 games so far and Kylian Mbappe and Neymar are becoming formidable. This could get ugly. There is just no way that Monaco can be backed in this one. They are a shambles, the new boss doesn’t seem to know what to do and PSG are mighty. We may as well back PSG to win to nil at 5/4 odds* (betting odds taken on November 8th, 2018 at 9:15 pm)

Milan v Juventus - 7.30 pm

Juventus were rocked in midweek as they blew a lead in Turin to lose against Manchester United in the Champions League. Back in league action this weekend they face up to an AC Milan side who have started to come into form. Juve are undefeated still in this season’s Serie A with a W10 D1 record and it’s not often you're going to see them crumble, especially at home. AC Milan are on a three-match winning streak, but all of those were against sides currently in the bottom half of the table. The Milanese have lost out at both Inter and Napoli already, two of the three sides currently above them in the table. They could put up a fight but it still hard to oppose the might and power of Juve. We are going to stick with a success for Juventus as they usually come through. Given Milan's away record at top sides this season though, Juventus to win to nil by a one-goal margin fits nicely at 13/5 odds* (betting odds taken on November 8th, 2018 at 9:15 pm).

Barcelona v Real Betis 3:15 pm

Barcelona have strung together a three-match winning streak now in the Spanish top flight and that is even with them conceding goals. They edged out at 3-2 win at Rayo Vallecano last weekend which puts them on 31 goals in 11 league games this season. That’s some scoring power and probably enough to get the better of Real Betis at the Nou Camp on Sunday. Betis are down in 14th heading into the weekend and they are on a four-match winless streak of form. They snapped a three-match losing streak with a draw against Celta Vigo last weekend. Still, they have scored only five goals in their last six games, three of those were in that draw last weekend. Betis are the lowest-scoring side in the league at the moment. Barcelona to win to nil is worth a flutter this weekend at 6/5 odds* (betting odds taken on November 8th, 2018 at 9:15 pm) even though they have been conceding goals.

Celta Vigo v Real Madrid - 7.45 pm

After a resounding Champions League win over Viktoria Plzen in midweek, what next for Real Madrid as they take on La Liga action out on the road at Celta Vigo on the weekend? Madrid are seven points adrift of league leaders Barcelona and with a W1 D1 L4 record in their last six league games. That win did come last weekend though as they beat Valladolid 2-0 at the Bernabeu. Fortunately for Real Madrid, Celta Vigo are out of shape with only one win in their last eight league games, although that win was on home soil against Eibar in their last home match. They have scored seven goals in their last two games which is something. They are W2 D3 L1 at home so not an easy opponent for Madrid to handle and they have two home draws in their last three against Real. Celta Vigo don't actually have bad home form this season and they beat Atletico Madrid there 2-0 earlier this season. The outright draw is quite appealing but instead, the even-money odds on a Celta Vigo +1 Asian Handicap could be the right fit* (betting odds taken on November 8th, 2018 at 9:15 pm).

Juventus v Manchester United Predictions & Betting Odds – 7th November 2018

Manchester United
Juventus v Manchester United Betting Tips - Champions League, 7th November 8.00pm Manchester United were outclassed at Old Trafford against Juventus on match day three and now face that even tougher test against the Old Lady in Turin. The Red Devils barely laid a glove on the Italians in the first meeting and with Juve in such tremendous form this season, it could be a long night for the travellers. Read our predictions for Juventus v Manchester United.

Juventus v Manchester United Betting Odds*

Juventus 11/2 Draw 11/4 Man Utd 11/2 * (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on November 4th, 2018 at 2:39 p.m.) [bbutton bookmaker="bet365"] [toc heading_levels="2"]

Juventus News and Form

Juventus took a 1-0 win at Old Trafford against the Red Devils on match day three tanks to a strike by Paulo Dybala. The Bianconeri have yet to concede a single goal in this season’s group stage campaign. They beat Valencia 2-0, Young Boys 3-0 and then Manchester United 1-0. Cristiano Ronaldo is the 11/10 anytime goalscorer favourite* (betting odds taken on November 4th 2018 at 10:47 am) Juve finished second in their group last season behind Barcelona but took seven points from their three home games. They were on a 27 game unbeaten streak at home in Europe (W16 D11) before a 3-0 quarter-final first leg loss against Real Madrid. Juve have only lost two European home games at the Juventus Stadium (W20 D12). They were winless in three at home (D2 L1) before beating Young Boys easily in Turin on match day one. Just twice this season in all competitions have Juve failed to score at least two goals in a game. Over 2.5 goals is at 8/5 odds* (betting odds taken on November 4th 2018 at 10:47 am) The Old Lady have won all but one of their games in all competitions this season, the exception being a 1-1 draw with Genoa in Serie A. Juventus have scored exactly three goals in three of their last four home games. A win in the fixture will give Juventus the group win in Group H with two games to spare.

Juventus v Manchester United Head to Head

Juve are W6 D2 L5 from their previous meetings with Manchester United Before match day three, their most recent meeting was in the 2002/03 Group Stage United won both games on that occasion Manchester United were on a three-match winning streak against Juve before their loss on match day three

Manchester United News and Form

The Red Devils beat Young Boys away from home on math day one but were then held 0-0 by Valencia and then suffered the loss against Juve. This is the first time since the 2012/13 Champions League that they have failed to score in back to back games in the competition The last time they went three without scoring was in the 2005/06 campaign. Both teams not to score is at 10/11 odds* (betting odds taken on November 4th 2018 at 10:47 am) Manchester United have lost four of their last 23 European games home and away combined (W14 D5). Out on the road in Europe, they have lost just one of their last ten (w6 D3). Manchester United have conceded only the four goals in the last ten European away games, never more than one in a match They have remained unbeaten in their last four trips to Italy (W2 D2). Their most recent trip to Italy saw the Red Devils take a 3-2 win at AC Milan in the 2009/10 Champions League United were on an eight-match unbeaten run of form against Serie A sides before losing against Juventus on match day three. Anthony Martial has scored in four of United’s last five games and is at 7/2 in the anytime goalscorer market* (betting odds taken on November 4th 2018 at 10:47 am)

Juventus v Manchester United Predictions

Juventus to win: It was fairly easy and comfortable for Juve in the first meeting. They looked like the home side at Old Trafford. We are going to back another win for the Italians.

Manchester United v Juventus Predictions & Betting Odds – 23rd October 2018

Manchester United
Manchester United v Juventus Betting Tips - Champions League, 23rd October 8.00pm The Red Devils need a win at home in this one to take over from the Italians at the top of Group H in the Champions League. That won’t be an easy task though for them as Juventus have been in stunning form and Cristiano Ronaldo makes his return to Old Trafford with them. Will he light up the night once more at the Theatre of Dreams? Read our predictions for Manchester United v Juventus.

Manchester United v Juventus Betting Odds*

Juventus 13/10 Manchester United 21/10 Draw 23/10 * (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on October 21st, 2018 at 5:43 p.m.) [bbutton bookmaker="bet365"] [toc heading_levels="2"]

Manchester United News and Form

Manchester United need to collect all three points to move back to the top of Group H. They opened with an away win at Young Boys but then drew at home against Valencia. Defeat would make winning the group pretty unlikely from that position. Manchester are W1 D4 L1 in their last six games across all competitions. Their lone success in what sequence was a 3-2 come-from-behind premier League win at home against Newcastle. The Red Devils have just one clean sheet in their last six games. Both teams to score is at 4/5 odds* (betting odds taken on October 21st, 2018 at 6:02 pm). They have scored in four of their six home games this season. Manchester United have a good European record going, losing just three of their last 22 games home and away in Europe (W14 D5). Backing them to avoid defeat in this one with a double chance is at 8/13 odds* (betting odds taken on October 21st, 2018 at 6:02 pm). Manchester United have won their last five home matches in Europe against Italians sides and they have earned a clean sheet in each of their last four such games. They are a big price of 5/2 to blank their opponents on Tuesday* (betting odds taken on October 21st, 2018 at 6:02 pm). Romelu Lukaku has failed to score in any of his last seven games for Manchester United now after a run of four in four. Anthony Martial, after a brace on the weekend against Chelsea, has three goals in this last two games for the Red Devils now.

Manchester United v Juventus Head to Head

From twelve meetings the head to head is even at W5 D2 each From the previous clashes, each side have netted 15 goals This is the first meeting since the 2002/03 Group Stage when United won both games Manchester United have won the last three games against Juventus Juventus have failed to win any of their last four against United D1 L3

Juventus News and Form

Juventus have won their two group stage matches so far this season without conceding a goal. Juventus to win to nil at Old Trafford on Tuesday is at 9/2 odds* (betting odds taken on October 21st, 2018 at 6:02 pm). Juventus failed to win for the first time in all competitions this season as they were held to 1-1 league draw by Genoa. They have scored at least two goals in each of their other matches this season. Over 2.5 goals is at 11/10 odds* (betting odds taken on October 21st, 2018 at 6:02 pm). Former Manchester United player Cristiano Ronaldo has five goals in ten games for Juve this season. He scored the 400th league goal of his career on the weekend. Ronaldo can be backed at 6/4 in the anytime goalscorer market to net at his old stomping ground* (betting odds taken on October 21st, 2018 at 6:02 pm). Juventus are undefeated in their last five away games in Europe so they do have form going and they have won each of their last four on the road. The Old Lady also have good form against English sides going as well as they are undefeated in their last eight games against Premier League sides (W4 D4) and each of those wins have happened in their last five games against English opponents. They are W2 D2 in their last four trips to England.

Manchester United v Juventus Predictions

Juventus to win: There has to be value in backing the Italians at a nice odds-against price on their trip to Old Trafford. United look pretty fragile in the back line and Juventus have the power to crack them open. Away win.

Juventus v Genoa Predictions & Betting Odds – 20th October 2018

European Football
Juventus v Genoa Betting Tips - Serie A, 20th October 5.00pm Will it be business as usual for Juventus as they return to league action after the international break? They are eight wins from eight league games this season so far and are just romping their way through the league season. Their next challengers/potential victims are Genoa who make the trip to Turin. Read our predictions for Juventus v Genoa.

Juventus v Genoa Betting Odds*

Juventus 2/11 Draw 11/2 Genoa 14/1 * (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on October 17th, 2018 at 9:00 p.m.) <br> [bbutton bookmaker="bet365"] <br> <br> [toc heading_levels="2"] It has been nothing less than a procession for Juventus this season in the top flight. They have played eight and won eight. That sequence includes games against two of the other sides in the top four, Lazio and Napoli. The Old Lady have returned at least two goals in each of their four home games in the league this season. They will have Champions League action in midweek, so with that in mind, a comfortable Juventus 2-0 correct score option is at 5/1 odds* (betting odds taken on October 17th, 2018 at 7:35 pm). They took a comfortable 3-1 win over second-place Napoli in their last home game. There is a trend with those 2-0 scorelines. Four of their eight wins this season have been by that. Cristiano Ronaldo has been among the goals for them, but probably not as heavily as fans would have expected. But still, he is a ridiculously priced 2/1 first goalscorer favourite here* (betting odds taken on October 17th, 2018 at 7:35 pm). The other sensible option for the game from a betting perspective is probably Juventus to win to nil.

Genoa News and Form

Tough fixture for Genoa then, who lost their last league game before the international break, suffering a 3-1 home defeat against Parma. Genoa are W4 D0 L3 for the season with two of the three defeats happening out on the road. Their lone away win happened at Frosinone, the side currently second from bottom in the table. Genoa are actually the current top scorers in the bottom half of the table. However, looking at the league overall, they have the third-worst defensive record in the entire thing. Still, we are going under 2.5 goals at 6/4 odds* (betting odds taken on October 17th, 2018 at 7:35 pm). In their three league defeats alone this season they have conceded twelve goals. There is an obvious indication of their status. They have won all games against sides currently in the bottom half this season. Meanwhile, they have lost all of their games against sides currently in the top half of the table.

Juventus v Genoa Head to Head

Juventus meet Genoa in league and cup last season and won all three games against them, two of them to nil. Juve are currently on a four-match winning streak against Genoa. At home they have won their last five in a row in Serie A against Genoa, not conceding a single goal in any of those games. Both teams have scored in just two of the last eleven meetings.

Juventus v Genoa Predictions

Juventus to win: You wouldn’t expect to read anything else here other than a Juventus win. That’s what we are going with and that is what should happen. There is a comfortable to win to nil option, but the 2-0 correct score appeals greatly.

Ramsey to Anfield gains momentum in betting markets

Next Manager Betting & Transfers
Arsenal star set for summer move? There has been a lot of speculation about the future of Arsenal’s Aaron Ramsey. The Welshman’s contract talks with the club has fallen through and it looks for all the world that he will be leaving the Gunners in the summer when his contract is up. During the recent summer transfer window, there were links between Ramsey and AC Milan. They have been long admirers of the midfield ace and they are in at 10/3 to capture his signature in the summer* (betting odds taken on October 9th, 2018 at 4:20 pm). Whole other big names like Juventus, Manchester United and Chelsea have all been linked up with interest in the Welshman, it is Liverpool who are shorter than ever to get his services. Liverpool are now just 5/2, making them the favourites to get Ramsey in the summer* (betting odds taken on October 9th, 2018 at 4:20 pm). That is down from a price of 5/1 so it’s been a big move.

Aaron Ramsey Next Club

Liverpool – 5/2 AC Milan – 10/3 Juventus – 4/1 Manchester United – 9/2 Chelsea – 6/1 * (betting odds taken on October 9th, 2018 at 4:20 pm) [bbutton bookmaker="Ladbrokes"] Liverpool have just started to show signs of becoming a bit static and predictable this season, a far cry from their powerful, fluent attacking selves from last term. Their big three of Mo Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino haven’t been at the races and certainly, the arrival of Ramsey would give the Reds a tremendous boost in the middle of the park. Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “With Arsenal seemingly preparing for life without Ramsey, it now looks as though Liverpool will add another Gunner to their ranks at the next available opportunity.”
