I’VE already had Barcelona knocked out of this season’s Champions League – but this time it’s for real.
Their fightback from 4-0 down against PSG was remarkable but qualifying from 3-0 behind to Juventus would be even more impressive.
Unlike PSG the Italians know how to defend and are mentally tough. I can see Juve scoring – as the French champs did at the Nou Camp – but surely won’t concede five even if they’re up against MSN.
Barca are 5-1 at bet365 to qualify as opposed to 1-7 for their opponents.
Juve boss Max Allegri insists his side need to score twice so expect an open game. Barca will throw caution to the wind so best bet could be over 3.5 goals at 5-4 with Paddy Power. Both teams to score returns 4-6 at Paddy Power.
With so much attacking powe on show it’s not easy picking a first scorer so instead consider players to net at anytime. Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez are both odds on so look to Neymar at 6-4 with Paddy Power.
Juve have a doubt over first-leg hero Paolo Dybala so consider former Real star Gonzalo Higuain who is 2-1 with 888sport after hitting six in four games.
The other tie should also see plenty of goals and I expect Monaco to beat Dortmund again. Their 3-2 first-leg win was overshadowed by a bomb attack on the Dortmund bus but the exciting French are the better team.
Monaco average two goals a game in the Champions League and Dortmund three so again try over 3.5 match goals at 19-20 with 188BET.
Kylian Mpabbe was the star of the leg and the Monaco kid is 7-4 at Coral to score again.
Bets to Consider
Barcelona v Juventus over 3.5 goals
Monaco v Dortmund over 3.5 goals
Monaco to qualify
Mbappe to score
