Ajax vs Benfica (Low Odds): Ajax to win in 90mins & Both Teams to Score - 6/4

Ajax and Benfica go head to head at the Johan Cruijff Arena on Tuesday in the second leg of the Champions League Round 0f 16.

The first leg resulted in a 2-2 draw at Estadio da Luz as a Sebastien Haller own goal and Roman Yaremchuk strike earned the Liga NOS outfit a draw having fallen behind twice in the match to goals from Dusan Tadic and Haller in the first half.

Erik ten Hag’s men have been impressive in the Champions League this season, topping Group C by winning six matches from six against the likes of Borussia Dortmund, Sporting Lisbon and Besiktas, scoring 20 and conceding five in the process.

Two of these victories included the 4-2 and 5-1 hammerings of Sporting, who are ahead of Benfica in the Portuguese Primeira by three points with a game in hand. To add to this, Ajax’s last two league matches against Cambuur and RKC Waalwijk have resulted in 3-2 victories.

Ajax vs Benfica (High Odds): Sebastien Haller to Score First & Ajax to win 3-1 - 28/1

At present, former West Ham United and Eintracht Frankfurt striker Haller is the second top scorer in the Champions League with 11 goals in seven matches, having been overtaken by Robert Lewandowski by one goal after the Pole’s hat-trick for Bayern Munich against RB Salzburg.

Ajax have scored three goals in their last two matches against Cambuur and RKC Waalwijk and will be hoping to tighten up their defence when they host Benfica on Tuesday night or potentially face the consequences of being eliminated in the Round of 16.

Manchester United vs Atletico Madrid (Low Odds): Cristiano Ronaldo to Score a Header in 90mins - 16/1

Next up sees Manchester United face Atletico Madrid in a fascinating tie in the Round of 16 at Old Trafford.

Ralf Rangnick’s men come into this match off the back of a much needed 3-2 victory over Tottenham Hotspur where Cristiano Ronaldo was the star of the show.

The 37-year-old Portuguese forward managed to bag a hat-trick in Saturday’s late kick-off including a header to win the match 3-2, following an Alex Telles corner from the right-hand side.

Ronaldo, who knows Tuesday’s opponents well from his time at Real Madrid, as well as in a couple of encounters with Juventus has a good record against Diego Simeone’s men, as he has found the back of the net 25 times and created nine assists in 36 matches.

Manchester United vs Atletico Madrid (High Odds): BTTS in Both Halves, 2+ Corners Each Team in Each Half & 20+ Booking Points Each Team - 100/1

With this tie being delicately poised at 1-1 from the first leg at the Wanda Metropolitano thanks to Anthony Elanga’s late goal which cancelled out Joao Felix’s opener, there could be plenty of action at Old Trafford.

United’s most recent match against Spurs saw both teams score in both halves, with the Red Devils leading 2-1 at half-time before running out as 3-2 winners, as well as there be nine corner kicks between the two sides on top of three yellow cards.

On paper, due to both sides’ inconsistencies this season, this tie could provide plenty of goals, as United have leaked 40 in 29 Premier League games, while Atletico has let in 36 from 28 La Liga matches. There were 11 corner kicks and nine yellow cards in the first leg of this tie.
