Leagues Tipped:

LEICESTER'S Champions League dream is likely to be shattered on Wednesday as they face the might of Atletico Madrid.

The Foxes shocked Sevilla in this previous round but could struggle against a side that's reached two finals in three years.

Diego Simone's side can't lift La Liga this season so will be fully focused on this tie – as is Leicester boss Craig Shakespeare who fielded a weakened team as he suffered a first defeat at Everton.

I can't see City containing the likes of Antoine Griezmann and Fernando Torres although Kevin Gameiro's absence is a blow.

Atletico are no bigger than 4-17 to qualify and 3-10 with McBookie to win tonight's home leg.

Sevilla battered the Foxes at home but two missed penalties in the ties cost them dear. Atletico will be more clinical and look good at 20-23 with boylesports to win by two or more.

France star Griezmann is worth backing at 3-1 with William Hill to score first and is 5-6 at Stan James to net.

On thing Leicester have is pace and Jamie Vardy netted their vital away goal in Sevilla. He is 5-1 at 888sport to score again but Atletico won't concede easily and are more likely to win to nil at 10-11 with Paddy Power.

The other tie between Bayern and Real Madrid should be a cracker. Bayern have won 16 CL games in a row at home but are a short at a best 5-6 with Betfair. Real are 15-4 at boylesports with the draw 3-1 at McBookie.

Both sides are in good form and with so many star attackers on show – Robert Lewandowski, Arjen Robben, Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema – on show there should be goals.

Best bet is over 2.5 goals at 4-6 with Skybet and take Lewandowski – 45 goals in 46 games this season – to score at 10-11 with Paddy Power.

I'm adding what I wrote about the Dortmund v Monaco match that was postponed on Tuesday. I hope shocking incident with the Dortmund bus has no affect on the game and we get the open, goal-laden tie we anticipated.

Dortmund could react two ways – they could be in shock or could feel they've got a cause to play for.

Coaches Thomas Tuchel and Leonardo Jardim reckon attack's the best form of defence – Man City 5, Monaco 3 was a brilliant game and this could be something similar.

Best bet could be over 3.5 goals at 23-20 with betfair while both teams to score pays 1-2 at bet365.

Monaco's 12 matches in the Champions League fixtures have totalled 39 goals and there have been 35 in Dortmund's eight.

Jardim has revived the fortunes of Radamel Falcao while Kylian Mpabbe is one of Europe's most exciting young talents. Falcao is 5-2 at Stan James to net and Mpabbe is 11-4 at Betfred.

Dortmund are missing Mario Gotze and Marco Reus and have doubts over several others so will hope Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is on top form. He is first-scorer favourite at 3-1 with Betfred and 5-6 with Stan James to net.

Monaco are underdogs to qualify but having recovered from two down to KO City I fancy them at 6-4 with Skybet. Dortmund are too short at 8-15 with McBookie and are also odds on at Marathonbet to win tonight.

The French title chasers are as big as 21-5 at Unibet and I'd consider them to score 2+ at 13-8 with bet365.
