UEFA Champions League Betting Preview: Round of 16 Second Legs

Wednesday: Liverpool v Atletico Madrid (0-1)

The European champions, Liverpool, are up against it when they host Atletico Madrid at Anfield and could see their Champions League title slip away on Merseyside. Before kick off, Liverpool are still 11/10 to qualify, whilst Atletico are the favourites to make it through at 4/6, although the Reds are heavily backed on the night with a price of 4/7 to in before full time. At the same time, the away side are an incredible 6/1 to win in 90 minutes.

Indeed, a goal for Diego Simeone's men and Liverpool will have one of the toughest tasks in football and need three goals against a defensively astute Atletico side. The Spanish outfit have not conceded three goals this season and have only let in two within one game just 10 times in all competitions thus far. As for the Premier League leaders, to score 3+ it is just 9/4, although the price of 6/4 for 'Liverpool and no' for the full time result and BTTS could be worth slamming in an accumulator with Sky Bet.

There are also a few price boosts to consider, such as 'Sadio Mane to score a brace' at 10/1, boosted from 15/2, or Mane to score first and Liverpool to win 2-0 at 25/1.

Wednesday: PSG V Borussia Dortmund (1-2)

If Liverpool taking on Atletico isn't the tie of the round, Paris Saint-Germain vs Borussia Dortmund is certainly the fixture to keep an eye on. In the first leg, Erling Haaland continued to shock the world with his unrivalled brilliance this season, bagging twice for Dortmund and giving them a 2-1 lead to take to Paris. Now, Haaland is boosted from 13/2 to 15/2 to score another brace, or you can get the Norwegian at 13/10 to score anytime.

Haaland's stunning strike from range showed this outrageously impressive 19-year-old has no sign of slowing down and you can get the Dortmund striker at a very tempting 3/1 to end the season as the Champions League top scorer, which is worth considering when he is just one goal behind Robert Lewandowski and how the Pole will be out of action for at least a month.

Prior to kick off, Dortmund are 8/11 to qualify and PSG are priced at evens. On the other hand, the French champions are 8/11 to win in 90 minutes, whilst the German giants are 29/10 to win before the full time whistle. If PSG score, it will mean Dortmund must get one back because of the home side's away goal and you can get 'PSG and yes' for full time result and BTTS at 11/8 and 'PSG and no' at 7/2.
