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

Manchester United cut to beat PSG in UCL after injury to Neymar

Bookmaker News
On Wednesday night in the French cup, PSG superstar Neymar rolled his ankle and left the pitch in tears. While PSG did win the cup tie against Strasbourg in what was a testy affair, they have paid a price it would seem as they are going to be potentially losing Neymar for a considerable length of time.

Manchester United v PSG to qualify odds*

PSG 4/11 Manchester United 2/1 *(betting odds taken from bet365 on January 24, 2019, at 9:28 p.m.) Early reports have their talisman being out of action for both legs of their UEFA Champions League tie against Manchester United. Punters reacted to the Neymar injury by backing Manchester United to win the first leg of that tie which is at Old Trafford. The Red Devils have been cut into 15/8 odds to win the fixture*(betting odds taken from bet365 on January 24, 2019, at 9:28 p.m.). It does still leave them as the underdogs with PSG at 13/10 odds to open up the advantage in the tie*(betting odds taken from bet365 on January 24, 2019, at 9:28 p.m.). That first leg is coming up on February 12 from Old Trafford. Last season Neymar picked up pretty much the exact same injury which caused him to miss a total of 15 games at the end of the PSG’s season. PSG are currently top of Ligue 1 holding a massive 13 point advantage over second-placed Lille. PSG do have two games in hand over their nearest challengers as well.

Napoli v Liverpool Predictions & Betting Odds – 3rd October 2018

Liverpool
Napoli v Liverpool Betting Preview - UEFA Champions League 3rd October 8.00pm Liverpool came up with a late winner at home on match day one to claim maximum points off PSG in this tough group. They will be looking to follow up with something on the board from this trip to Italy. Napoli have been putting together a strong season but they could only manage a 0-0 draw in their opening Champions League group against Red Star Belgrade. Read our predictions for the Napoli v Liverpool fixture.

Napoli News and Form

Napoli have put together a solid enough season so far. They are running in second place in Serie A only to Juventus. They lost against the Old Lady on the weekend in a high-profile showdown at the top of the league. That was their second defeat of the season only across all competition. On home soil, Napoli have three wins from three games played, the last two wins coming with a clean sheet as well. You do have two very strong sides going up against each other here and over 2.5 goals is at 4/5 odds* (betting odds taken on September 30th, 2018 at 6:46 pm). As good as Napoli have been on the domestic front they have struggled to translate it over into European action. They have lost seven of their last thirteen games in Europe and have won just one of their last six in the Champions League. They have won three of their last four European home games though, firing off at least two goals in each of those. Both teams to score looks a pretty straightforward option to throw into the mix at 4/7 odds* (betting odds taken on September 30th, 2018 at 6:46 pm). They have what it takes to make this a very difficult game for Liverpool and current boss Carlo Ancelotti has never lost a UEFA game against Liverpool (W3 D1).

Liverpool News and Form

Liverpool’s winning streak across all competitions ended in the week with back to back draws (90 minutes) against Chelsea in the EFL Cup and Premier League. On match day one of this season’s Champions League, Liverpool came up with a late winner to beat PSG 3-2. This trip to Naples will be the first of two very difficult road games in the group for the Reds, having to go to Paris to face PSG as well. This season in all competitions away from Anfield, Liverpool have posted a W3 D1 record and they have conceded exactly one goal in each of their last three road games. In the correct score market a 1-1 draw is the shortest-priced option at 6/1 with the Liverpool 2-1 at 15/2* (betting odds taken on September 30th, 2018 at 6:46 pm). Mo Salah was hauled off in the second half of Liverpool draw at Chelsea on the weekend in the EPL, and he looks short of confidence. Daniel Sturridge, who scored their equaliser in that game with an absolute peach from 30 yards, is a decent enough 3/2 anytime goalscorer option to have a look at for the game anyway* (betting odds taken on September 30th, 2018 at 6:46 pm). Liverpool's record in Europe against Italian teams is W10 D7 L10. Last season away from home in the group stage Liverpool only went W1 D2 and then turned around to post a W2 L1 record in three knockout stage away games. Their only loss was in Italy against Roma.

Napoli v Liverpool Head to Head

The only previous time that these two met was in the 2010 Europa League. There was a 0-0 between the two out in Italy and then Liverpool posted a comfortable 3-1 win back on home soil against them.

Napoli v Liverpool Betting Odds*

Liverpool even money Napoli 13/5 Draw 5/2 * (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on September 29th, 2018 at 11.35 p.m.) [bbutton bookmaker="bet365"]

Napoli v Liverpool Predictions

The Italians are not going to be a pushover at all in this one and haven't done bad on home soil recently in Europe.  With the experienced hand of Carlo Ancelotti a Napoli Double Chance has a bit of appeal moving forward into this game.

Tottenham v Barcelona Prediction & Betting Tips – 3rd October 2018

Tottenham
Tottenham v Barcelona UEFA Champions League, 3rd October 8.00pm Tottenham needs to come up with something in this one at Wembly aginast Barcelona in midweek. Spurs lost their opening group stage game against Inter and will be really up against it if they fall to the Catalans. However, Barcelona are not running in great form at the moment, being winless in three. Read our Tottenham v Barcelona betting tips for more.

Tottenham v Barcelona Betting Odds*

Barcelona 19/20 Tottenham 5/2 Draw 14/5 * (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on September 29th, 2018 at 11.35 p.m.) [bbutton bookmaker="bet365"]

Tottenham News and Form

Spurs have somewhat recovered from their little slump of three straight defeats, which included a loss against Inter on match day one of the Champions League. Premier League wins out at Brighton and Huddersfield sandwiched a penalty shootout EFL Cup win over Watford over the last week. In their game against Inter, Spurs were looking in some control after Christian Eriksen had given them the lead in the second half. But they shipped two goals in the last five minutes of the game to suffer a hammer-blow of a loss. They have been shaky at the back this season and both teams to score at 1/2 odds* (betting odds taken on September 30th, 2018 at 9:39 pm). So already they are worse off than they were in last season’s Group Stage where they posted a great W5 D1 record. Spurs have won three of their last four home games in Europe (L1) but only have the one clean sheet in those games. Tottenham have managed just the two clean sheets in their last ten European fixtures. It is a little tricky to find a good balance in the over/under market with under 3.5 at 8/13 odds* (betting odds taken on September 30th, 2018 at 9:39 pm).

Tottenham v Barcelona 2018 Infographic

Barcelona News and Form

Barcelona’s form has taken a bit of a dip with a run of three winless matches. They have gone D2 L1 in their last three games, all in La Liga. So that has been a big drop off after they had won their opening six games of the season across all competitions. They are still on a streak of having scored in every game played this season, so they should be backed to get on the scoresheet. In the bet365 correct score market a Barcelona 2-1 is at 15/2 odds* (betting odds taken on September 30th, 2018 at 9:39 pm) and a very appealing option for Tottenham v Barcelona betting tips. Given that Barcelona have just been through a few struggles recently we have to look at the opportunity of them getting a win, but not by a big margin. A Barcelona to win by a one-goal margin is at 3/1 odds* (betting odds taken on September 30th, 2018 at 9:39 pm). On match day one of this season’s Champions League Barcelona powered their way to a 4-0 home win over PSV. With ten men. Lionel Messi scored a hattrick in that game. Out on the road, this season across all competitions Barcelona are W2 L1 with that loss happening against La Liga bottom side Leganes last week.

Tottenham v Barcelona Head to Head

The previous games between Spurs and Barcelona were in the European Cup Winners Cup back in 1982. There was a 1-1 draw in London before Barcelona took a 1-0 win back on home soil. That’s the extent of the head to head between them.

Who will win - Tottenham v Barcelona Predictions

We still have to roll with Barcelona coming up with something in this one. They are too good of a side to keep down and there have been defensive weaknesses from Spurs the visitors could exploit. Barcelona to win & both teams to score.

Hoffenheim v Manchester City Predictions & Betting Odds – 2nd October 2018

Manchester City
Hoffenheim v Manchester City Betting Preview - UEFA Champions League 2nd October 5.55pm Manchester City needs to come up with a response to their shock loss on match day one which they suffered against Lyon. They surprisingly went down on home soil in one of the worst displays they have produced under Pep Guardiola. A win out in Germany on Tuesday will start to set the record straight. Read our predictions for the Hoffenheim v Manchester City fixture.

Hoffenheim News and Form

German side Hoffenheim made their debut in the Champions League back on match day one and got a good return with an away point at Shakhtar Donetsk in a 2-2 draw. This is a big home game for them, arguably the biggest home game of their history as they take on the English Champions. This is going to be some occasion for them. Hoffenheim hold a W3 D2 L3 record for the season across all competitions and all but one of those fixtures have produced at least three goals. For our Hoffenheim v Man City predictions we are looking over 3.5 goals at even money with this one* (betting odds taken on September 30th, 2018 at 3:34 pm). This will actually only be Hoffenheim's third home game of the season, in their previous two beating Freiburg and taking a great draw against Borussia Dortmund in the Bundesliga. They have hit the back of the net every game played this season. Florian Grillitsch and Havard Nordtveit got their goals on match day one. Their shortest priced option in the anytime goalscorer market for the game is Brazilian Joelinton. They are naturally going off as underdogs in this one, but if they could hustle their way to a point that would be a tremendous return from them.

Manchester City News and Form

Manchester City churned out one of their worst performances seen under Pep Guardiola on match day one. They were slack, unimaginative and uninspired as they slumped to a defeat against Lyon. So that puts them on the back foot early in the Champions League but that game aside, they have been strong. They have won eight of their other nine matches played (D1) in all competitions. They have won each of their last three games after beating Brighton in the Premier League on the weekend. That’s ten goals scored in their last three and each of those games yielded a clean sheet for them too. Given their drop in standards on match day one though we are looking at a Man City 2-1 correct score at 15/2 odds* (betting odds taken on September 30th, 2018 at 3:34 pm). The Citizens are unbeaten on their travels this season. They have put up numbers of W4 D1 away from the Etihad and have conceded in just one of those. Sergio Aguero is a at 8/11 in the anytime goalscorer market* (betting odds taken on September 30th, 2018 at 3:34 pm). In last season's group stage City posted a W5 L1 record so they could recover and still match what they produced last season, where they won the group. A Manchester City to win & both teams to score option is at 6/4 odds for the game* (betting odds taken on September 30th, 2018 at 3:34 pm) which looks a reasonable punt. Manchester City’s record against German sides is W9 D3 L7.

Hoffenheim v Manchester City Head to Head

Manchester City and Hoffenheim will be meeting for the first time ever in this fixture.

Manchester United v Valencia Predictions & Betting Odds – 2nd October 2018

Manchester United
Manchester United v Valencia Betting Preview - UEFA Champions League 2nd October 8.00pm After another Premier League defeat on the weekend, things seem to be falling apart at the seams a bit for Manchester United. The Red Devils did win their opening group stage of the Champions League though, beating Young Boys. They get a visit from Valencia at Old Trafford in midweek and the Spaniards haven’t been running in great form themselves. Read our predictions for the Manchester United v Valencia fixture.

Manchester United News and Form

What next for the Red Devils who look to be in a bit of a mess? That is a three-match winless streak that they are on across all competitions. It has been a rough week for them, with a draw against the newly promoted Wolves and a loss against West Ham in the Premier League. Sandwiching those results was an EFL Cup defeat against Championship side Derby. Not much is going right on or off the field for the Red Devils and United have only claimed one clean sheet in their last five games. Last season Manchester United's Champions League campaign came undone against a Spanish side, Sevilla. The Red Devils picked up a 3-0 win at Champions League debutants Young Boys on match day one, but they had their scares in that match at the back. Given the history between Manchester United and Vaelncia, then you are probably going to want to follow the trend of low scoring, tight games. In the bet365 correct to score market a 1-1 draw is trading at 13/2 odds. Given what has happened to them this season, they can’t take any game lightly at the moment. Romelu Lukaku, who is on a five-match scoreless streak (all competitions) is the first goalscorer favourite.

Valencia News and Form

There has not been great momentum for Valencia this season yet. They collected a league win over Sociedad over the weekend and that was their first success of the term in any competitions. Only one of their games this season have reached three goals (all competitions) so it is hard to expect this one to be a high-scoring affair. Valencia posted a 2-0 loss out at Juventus in their opening Champions League game this season. So far this season on their travels, Valencia are W1 D2 L1. Valencia haven’t done all that bad at the back actually as they have collected a clean sheet in three of the last five games. They have earned two in their last three games, so overall they have been hard to break down. But going forward they are lacking a touch of scoring power and that is hampering them. They have failed to score in three of their last five as well, with just the two goals recorded in that sequence. For Manchester United v Valencia predictions there is the option of both teams not to score at 19/20 odds* (betting odds taken on September 30th, 2018 at 6:46 pm) if you wanted to run with that.

Manchester United v Valencia Head to Head

This will be the ninth meeting between Manchester United and Valencia. The most recent meetings were in 2010. Manchester United are W2 D4 in their last six meetings, all of which have been in the Champions League. Overall in the eight meetings, it is Man Utd ahead W2 D5 L2 against the Spaniards. Each of the last five meetings have ended under 2.5 goals. Three of the four, including the last two at Old Trafford have ended in a draw.

Manchester United v Valencia Predictions

We don’t see either quite having enough in them to go and pick up a win in this one. Manchester United are just not looking confident and Valencia are not doing enough to win games because of a lack of scoring power.

Young Boys v Manchester United Predictions & Betting Odds – 19th September 2018

Manchester United
Young Boys v Manchester United Betting Preview - UEFA Champions League 19th September 7.45pm Manchester United make their entrance into the UEFA Champions League and they can be pretty happy with the draw that they have ahead of them. The Red Devils will be looking to get themselves eased into the tournament without too many scares or thrills against a side making their tournament debut. Read our predictions for the Young Boys v Manchester United fixture.

Young Boys News and Form

Young Boys have a big season ahead of them as this is their first action in the main draw of the UEFA Champions League. They came through the qualification play-off against Dinamo Zagreb to create this piece of history. Last season they had lost at that last qualifying stage and went down to the Europa League group stage when they failed to make it out of the group. Their overall record in the Champions League, which up to this point has been in qualification, is W11 D7 L15. This is a tough opening game for them against one of the game’s biggest names. Young Boys have posted six wins from six games played in the domestic league this season, but they don't get to face anyone of its calibre there. For our Young Boys v Manchester United predictions we are looking at both teams not to score is at 19/20 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from September 15th, 2018 at 11:35 p.m.). Manchester United’s defence hasn’t looked the sharpest this season to be fair, but we can see the Young Boys struggling to get at them. Young Boys have a W1 D1 L4 record from previous matches against English sides.

Manchester United News and Form

Things seem to be settling down at Manchester United after they made it back to back wins with a win over Watford on the weekend. That was a tricky test which they came through then at Vicarage Road. So Jose Mourinho looks a bit more secure in his job at the moment than it did at the end of August after back to back losses against Brighton and Spurs. Manchester United to win to nil appeals at 2/1 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from September 15th, 2018 at 11:35 p.m.). Romelu Lukaku is in good scoring form for Manchester United so he has been delivering well early into the season. Lukaku is a strong first goalscorer favorite at 15/4 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from September 15th, 2018 at 11:35 p.m.) for the match. Manchester United haven’t been producing great attacking stuff all season but they have come up with at least two goals in all but one of their games regardless. It is just the points that are important for the Red Devils in this one, not the performance. Because of that and them not needing to exert themselves, a Manchester United 1-0 correct score option is at 13/2 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from September 15th, 2018 at 11:35 p.m.).

Young Boys v Manchester United Head to Head

Young Boys and Manchester United have never met before.

Young Boys v Manchester United Betting Odds*

Manchester United 7/10 Draw 3/1 Young Boys 7/2 * (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on September 16th, 2018 at 7:35 p.m.) [bbutton bookmaker="bet365"]

Young Boys v Manchester United Predictions

Manchester United have to be expected to get the win on the board in this one. It is one of those games that will probably end up being a low-key affair and the Red Devils just have to produce a level-headed professional performance. We are backing an away win by a one-goal margin for our Young Boys v Manchester United predictions.

Valencia v Juventus Predictions & Betting Odds – 19th September 2018

Champions League Betting
Valencia v Juventus Betting Preview - UEFA Champions League 19th September 7.45pm Cristiano Ronaldo will be making a trip back to Spain as Juventus make a visit to Valencia in midweek to start their UEFA Champions League campaign. The Old Lady are one of the front-runners to get their hands on the title this season, as they picked up CR7 specifically for this European action. Can he help guide the Italians to a win against a Valencia side who have yet to get themselves doing this season? Read our predictions for the Valencia v Juventus fixture.

Valencia News and Form

Valencia have collected just a D3 L1 record in the new La Liga season, so it hasn’t been the greatest of starts from them. They have returned just the three goals so far in their four games and to be fair their defence hasn’t been all that bad. But they are going to come under some big pressure in his one as this is a massively difficult game for them. The first option for our Valencia v Juventus predictions is Juventus to win to nil which is at 2/1 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from September 15th, 2018 at 11:35 p.m.). This is the first time since the 2015/16 season that Valencia find themselves in the Champions League group stage. On that occasion, they picked up just a W2 D0 L4 record, and only scored in three of those. Valencia have a W2 L3 record in their last five European home fixtures. They haven't managed to pick up a clean sheet in any of their last six at home in Europe either. Five of their last six home fixtures have gone over 2.5 goals. We are going to oppose that and look under 2.5 goals at 3/4 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from September 15th, 2018 at 11:35 p.m.) as Juve are so strong.

Juventus News and Form

After what seemed like forever, the wait for Cristiano Ronaldo to get his first Juventus goal is over as he netted a brace in their win over Sassuolo on the weekend. Will, that now open the floodgates? Ronaldo is the 11/4 first goalscorer favourite for the match which is probably going to appeal a lot for punters* (Betting Odds were taken from September 15th, 2018 at 11:35 p.m.). Juventus are one of the leading contenders to win the Champions League this season and they certainly have the squad in place to make a deep run. In their first European away games last season Juventus picked up a W3 D1 L1 record. They are very good out on the road in Europe and they have suffered just the one defeat in their last eleven road games in the competition (not including the 2017 Final). They are powerful and strong and a Juventus 1-0 correct score option appeals greatly at 11/2 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from September 15th, 2018 at 11:35 p.m.). It has been four wins from four for Juventus this season in all competitions, three of those have been by a one-goal margin.

Valencia v Juventus Head to Head

This will be the first meeting between Juventus and Valencia.

Juventus 4/5 Draw 5/2 Valencia 7/2 * (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on September 15th, 2018 at 11:35 p.m.) [bbutton bookmaker="bet365"]

Valencia v Juventus Predictions

Valencia haven’t quite gotten themselves up and running and the opposite can be said of Juventus. We can see the Italians doing a good enough job out on the road to bank themselves a win in this opener. The away win tops our Valencia v Juventus predictions.
