IT'S rare that football takes a back seat on the site but the first day of the Cheltenham Festival is always a bit special.

This year is no different, despite the lack of punters at the racecourse, and we've got the Festival covered in detail thanks to Alan Thomson and the Voice of Value who have the whole week covered in tremendous detail. Check out all our Day 1 coverage at the foot of this post.

On the football front we've got two second leg ties in the Champions League last 16. Both ties look relatively foregone conclusions.

Man City have a commanding two-goal lead from their ‘away' first leg against Borussia Monchengladbach and bookies are taking no chances, pricing them up at 2/9 to record another ‘home' win in Budapest. Pep Guardiola's men are 9/4 to lift the trophy and that price is only going to shorter after they qualify.

Despite being 1-0 down from the first leg in Italy the bookies still give Atalanta a fighting chance of knocking out Real Madrid in the Spanish capital. Gian Piero Gasperini's side are 5/2 to qualify. They'll need to find their scoring touch that has served them well over the past few seasons, while keeping things tight at the back. Madrid of course don't need to win but will tempt a few in at 21/20.

SlipsTips has zeroed in on the match for his feature Champions League BetBuilder.

There's almost a full card in the English lower league and Jamie Kennedy has added a few of those to his Goals Acca for Tuesday night which also includes matches in Serie B and Northern Ireland.

    Tonight’s double consists of 2 games in rather different surroundings. First to Huish Park in a game involving 2 sides scoring and conceding a fair few goals and then to Madrid in another game in which 2 sides score plenty.

    Yeovil Town vs Bromley
    Both teams to score

    Real Madrid vs Atalanta
    Both teams to score

    Double pays
    1.91/1 (William Hill)

    Reasoning on both games below 👇🏻

      Yeovil Town vs Bromley
      National League 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿
      Tuesday 16th March, 19:45 ⏰

      Yeovil have scored in 11 of their 13 home games including their last 9 in a row.
      Yeovil have conceded in 10 of their 13 home games.
      Both sides have scored in 8 of Yeovil’s 13 home games.

      Bromley have scored in 9 of their 11 away games including their last 3 in a row.
      Bromley have conceded in 8 of their 11 away games.
      Both sides have scored in 7 of Bromley’s 11 away games including their last 3 in a row.

      Looking through the stats this game jumped out for goals. Both of these sides have scored 23 goals and conceded 18 goals in their last 6 games combined. The last meeting resulted in a 2-1 Yeovil win and a similar score line here would do.

      Real Madrid vs Atalanta
      Champions League 🇪🇺
      Tuesday 16th March, 20:00 ⏰

      Real have scored in 15 of their 16 La Liga and Champions League home games.
      Real have conceded in 9 of their 16 La Liga and Champions League home games.
      Real have already conceded 5 goals in their 3 champions league home games.

      Atalanta have scored in 14 of their 16 Serie A and Champions League away games.
      Atalanta have conceded in 9 of their 16 Serie A and Champions League away games.
      Atalanta have scored in all 3 Champions League away games scoring 7.

      With Atalanta down 1-0 from the first leg, they’ll know they need to score at least once to qualify here. However they have scored 32 goals in their 16 away games this season and with the likelihood they’ll score at least once, Real will know they’ll need to score also and with them almost always scoring at home, I can see both sides scoring in what I think could be an open affair.

    Afternoon gents,

    Dreadful few days since Friday for me – can’t pick my nose! Still, there’s always a chance at redemption and when all else fails…try Wales!

    THE NEW SAINTS VS. CEFN DRUIDS 
    (7.45pm)

    The obvious choice here is goals for the hosts but TNS aren’t looking the all-powerful force they once were and, interestingly, bottom side Cefn Druids have actually scored in each of their last 8 away games.

    It’s certainly a gamble and won’t be a popular choice but it’s a big price and one I’m willing to take on with a few corners thrown into the mix for the Nb and Longshot:

    BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE
    (7/4, bet365) NAP ⭐⭐

    BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE
    OVER 7.5 MATCH CORNERS
    (9/4, bet365) NB ⭐

    BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE
    OVER 4.5 MATCH GOALS
    OVER 7.5 MATCH CORNERS
    (6/1, bet365) LONGSHOT ⭐

    Best of luck!

    Montevideo wanderers to score 6-5 (SKYBET) NAP

    Side bet BTTS and over 2.5 Goals 13-8.

    Bookies go 8-13 bolivar to score 3+ so they maybe should score at least 2 ?

    Wanderers won the 1st leg 1-0 but this is played at altitude which is a huge advantage to Bolivar and is a great leveller as talent wise I suspect if they played in a neutral country wanderers would win.

    Best chance of an away goal would be in the 1st hour before their oxygen levels deteriorate and the ventilators are brought on 😁.

    Bolivar are not as powerful at home as they were a couple of years but still beat the dross in their league comfortably.

    Wanderers lost 8-2 and 3-0 either side of the 1st leg but I have gone through the line ups and they made at least 8 changes for those games so obviously had an eye on this tie.

    Prediction 3-1, maybe 2-1

    Tonight’s double consists of 2 games in rather different surroundings. First to Huish Park in a game involving 2 sides scoring and conceding a fair few goals and then to Madrid in another game in which 2 sides score plenty.

    Yeovil Town vs Bromley
    Both teams to score ✅

    Real Madrid vs Atalanta
    Both teams to score ✅

    Double pays ✅✅
    1.91/1 (William Hill)

    Must admit I thought this bet was down with the Yeovil game 0-0 at half time and Atalanta playing rather poor. However after 64 minutes the Yeovil game was 1-1 and that Luis Muriel Greek kick brought up the double. Will post my selections on the J League very shortly, both games start at 10am tomorrow morning 👍🏼
