IT'S England v Spain in the Champions League semi-finals this week and tonight's clash between the league leaders in the Premier League and La Liga should be fascinating battle on several fronts.

It's the richest club in the world up against the 13-time champions of Europe, it's two-time winner Pep Guardiola going head-to-head with three-time winner Carlo Ancelotti, it's De Bruyne v Modric, it's Man City v Real Madrid.

On paper there's not much to separate the sides but the bookies have City as clear favourites to qualify for the final at just 1/3.

A win tonight at the Etihad is just 9/20 with Madrid a massive 11/2. That's a couple of points bigger than they were for their trip to PSG in the last 16. To be fair they didn't win in Paris but a 1-0 defeat was overturned convincingly back at the Bernabeu so Ancelotti's men probably deserve a bit more respect.

It took PSG until the 94th minute to break Real Madrid down at the Parc des Princes and in a similar vein it took City 70 minutes to break the deadlock against Atletico in the previous round at the Etihad. It could be another case of both sides easing themselves in to this tie. Over 2.5 Goals looks very short at 4/6 but rather than back Under 2.5 goals – who wants to see that? – take the 5/6 on offer for no goal before the 26th minute.

With so much attacking talent on show no goalscorer goes against the grain and is a bit of a longshot at 14/1 but City's last two Champions League matches at the Etihad have seen just one goal scored and Madrid have conceded just two away goals in five matches in the competition this season.

    • Alves 4 weeks ago

      Longshot…75/1

      Modric assist
      Casemiro to have 1+ shots on target
      Both teams to have 2+ cards

  2. craigyboy 4 weeks ago

    Odds of around 5/4 for BTTS and over 2.5 goals are generous for the City v R Madrid game, as are the odds of around 2/1 for BTTS and over 3.5 goals.

    City know their best form of defence will be to attack. No Cancelo or Walker which means it could see Nathan Ake fill in at right back. The unfamiliarity of that position could see Vinicius Jr. cause him a few headaches. I’ll wait for team news but Ake to get booked seems a logical choice. I can’t see Benzema not scoring, he posed Chelsea so many problems and despite his age is one of the Mose deadly finishers in world football.

    I can see why the bookies are leaning towards City but odds of 3/1 for City to concede over 1.5 goals, again seems overpriced and I’ll be taking odds of around 12/1 for Real Madrid over 2.5TG.

    With both teams looking to expose injury issues in defensive areas of the field, I don’t think it will be a typically cagey first leg. Both teams know there’s oppurtunities to exploit. The thought of Zinchenko and Ake at full back for City will have the Real Madrid wingers rubbing their hands. Dias as good as he is, has just come back from an injury lay off and there will be some rustiness there.

    I think we’re in for a cracker. The bookies have wrote off Real Madrid. Not saying they will win tonight but they are more than capable of hitting two or three in City’s backyard. Wouldn’t be surprised if we see a 2-2 or a 3-3 draw.

    Afternoon gents,

    Only one game tonight – the big one!

    All eyes will be on The Origovöllurinn in Reykjavík to see these Nordic godesses work their magic…

    VALUR W VS. THRÓTTUR REYKJAVÍK W
    (8.15pm)

    OK, so it may not be the highlight of the sporting calender but it is worth keeping an eye on some of these fixtures for goals – no guarantees in this betting lark but I’d say the goals line looks set a little on the low side.

    Valur ladies are a pretty dominant force and, of the last 21 meetings between these two sides, 15 games have seen 4+ goals, 13 games have seen 5+ goals, 10 games have seen 6+ goals, 7 games have seen 7+ goals with 6 of the last 14 games seeing 8+ goals…not too shabby!

    I’m taking on the following goals based bets and have to throw in the Nap at what looks like a bonkers price:

    VALUR WIN BOTH HALVES
    (1/1, williamhill) NAP ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    OVER 4.5 MATCH GOALS
    (13/10, bet365) NB ⭐️⭐️⭐️

    2ND HALF OVER 3.5 GOALS
    (10/3, williamhill) LONGSHOT I⭐️

    1ST HALF OVER 3.5 VALUR GOALS
    (9/1, williamhill) LONGSHOT II⭐️

    Best of luck!

    19:45
    English National League

    Dover to score 10-11 NAP/NB double stake (SKYBET).🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿

    Side bet BTTS and over 2.5 goals 11-8 (SKYBET)

    Dover have just reached the magical figure of 0 points for the season having finally erased their 12 point deficit.
    They have opened up a bit recently and scored in a fair few games including 5 at Wrexham and 2 last time out at chesterfield who are above notts county in the table.

    Notts county surely will score and hopefully 2 as their away games average 3 goals per game and throw in dovers piss poor defence and should get 2+.

    Prediction
    Dover 1 notts county 2,3,or 4
