European football bets of the week

Nick Barends12.04.2016

We're having the return matches of the quarter finals of the Champions League and none of these matches are really decided yet. Today we start with Manchester City versus Paris Saint-Germain, which is probably going to be the best match of the week. In the first game it came to a 2-2 in a very open match. PSG will have to start attacking now and this could turn into a great game. Both teams are very equally matched, but City has the home advantage. Having scored 2 goals away is another advantage and I think this could be the first time they make it to the semi finals of the Champions League. A double chance bet might be the safest to go with this game.

Real Madrid against Wolfsburg

This must have surprised many punters when the Germans beat Real 2-0 in the first match. I doubt Wolfsburg is going to give this game away, even if Real Madrid plays at home. They will have to start attacking and they just aren't as good at that as counters. Having to win with at least 2 goals is another hard task for the Spaniards.

Barcelona has to stay sharp

On Wednesday we can watch a Spanish match between Atletico Madrid and Barcelona. Barca won the last match 2-1, but they will have to improve a bit if they want to be certain of moving to the semi finals. If Atletico wins with 1-0 they will go through instead of Barcelona. I think Barcelona will stay sharp though and even a draw will get them through to the next round.

The last Champions League game is Benfice against Bayern Munich. Both teams were doing well in the first match, but Bayern won with 1-0. This time they really only need one goal to make it through to the semi finals, so I think the Germans will win this one too, but you can always bet on qualification instead.

Best football bet in the Europa League

I expect the best bet to be in the Europa League in the match of Liverpool against Borussia Dortmund. This was a great game to watch and it ended up in a 1-1 draw. Liverpool is playing at home and although this could be an advantage, it could also be a disadvantage. This game could end up with a lot of goals and 2-2 or 3-3 is a possibility. I would say, bet on over 2,5 at odds of around 1.80. You can still get this at plenty of bookmakers and it's a good bet for this week.
