The UEFA Champions League quarter-finals has reached its conclusion stages with eight teams set to reduce to four by the end of the week.
Bar the Liverpool-Benfica tie, the remaining three quarter-final games appear to be hanging in a balance heading into the second legs.
Here are predictions by BestBets on all four Champions League games this week. You’ll have access to all the odds of the games at the end of the article and can place your bets.
Real Madrid vs Chelsea
Real Madrid head into the second leg with a 3-1 advantage over Chelsea and will play the second leg in familiar territory; the Bernabeu.
With the away goal rule scraped, Chelsea are still alive in the tie and got the response expected from Thomas Tuchel over the weekend with a 6-0 win over Southampton.
Chelsea have no choice than to score goals if they want to qualify which will only leave room for Real Madrid to attack through Karim Benzema and Vinicius Junior.
Prediction: Over 2.5 goals
Bayern Munich vs Villarreal
Bayern Munich go into the second leg with a surprising 1 goal deficit after losing 1-0 to Villareal away.
Unai Emery rested his entire starting XI and will look to ensure that Bayern Munich fail to reach the semi-finals of the Champions League for a second consecutive season.
Bayern Munich are monsters at home having score three or more goals in all their four Champions League home games this season.
Prediction: Bayern win and over 2.5
Liverpool vs Benfica
Liverpool look to have wrapped up the tie with a relatively comfortable-looking 3-1 victory over Benfica in Lisbon.
With Jurgen Klopp complaining of fixture congestion, it won’t be surprising to see the German coach rest a few key players ahead of the FA Cup semi-final this weekend.
Benfica will need to have a go from the onset and try and score goals leaving them susceptible to a rapid Liverpool attack.
Prediction: Over 1.5
Atletico Madrid vs Manchester City
Manchester City go into the second leg at the Wanda Metropolitano with a slender 1-0 win from the first leg.
Atletico Madrid will be expected to attack a bit more than they did in Manchester knowing that they have to score to stay in the tie.
This will be music to Pep Guardiola’s ears as his side will have more spaces to attack.
Prediction: Manchester City double chance
