MANCHESTER CITY v Real Madrid was the Champions League Final most people wanted to see – and last week's quarter-final clash at the Bernabeu certainly lived up to the hype.

The Euro heavyweights shared six goals in one of the best games of the season so armchair fans are licking their lips ahead of the second instalment tonight.

Pep Guardiola's European champions weren't at their best in Spain but still emerged unbeaten and are 4/11 hot favourites (SkyBet) to reach the semi-finals with Real Madrid at 5/2 (SpreadEx).

Based on the first leg those odds look a little skewed but the bookies are probably factoring in the second leg of last season's semi-final, which City won 4-0.

We should see goals again and the best value is in the player markets. Backing Vinicius Junior to score or assist paid off for me in the first leg and the same bet pays a tempting 13/8 at Paddy Power.

Phil Foden scored a screamer at the Bernabeu and usually steps up in the big games so he also appeals at 11/10 with Paddy Power to either grab a goal or set one up.

Tonight's other quarter-final tie is also in the balance with Arsenal and Bayern Munich level at 2-2 after an Emriates thriller.

The Gunners are coming off the back of a damaging 2-0 Premier League loss to Aston Villa and 888Sport make Bayern 4/5 favourites to go through with Arsenal a best 13/12 at VBet.

It should be another tight game and the half-time draw looks a good option at 7/5 (BetUK) as Mikel Arteta might play it a bit cagey.

We only saw three corners in the first leg, with Arsenal winning 2-1 on that count, but Bayern Munich should have more pressure at home and are 23/20 at BetVictor to win most corners.

In the SPFL Premiership, Rangers will be out to cut the gap on leaders Celtic to just one point when they finally play their rearranged game with Dundee.

The dodgy Dens Park pitch has forced this match to be postponed twice so it's a potential banana skin for Gers after their slip-up at Ross County on Sunday.

Rangers have shipped six goals in their last two games so I had a punt on the 12/1 Bet365 were offering on a goal for Dundee's Luke McCowan, who has netted in three of his last five games. That price has now dropped to 17/2 but still looks decent.

However, I'd still expect Philippe Clement's men to win and combining BTTS with a Rangers victory pays 13/8 at McBookie.

      Lets just hope the referee doesn’t make this tie about him. The ref in the Barcelona game last night was insane.

    Has anybody else had problems with Skybet? Was checking my account today and two bets I placed last night had been cashed out, but the money wasn’t in my skybet account. Checked my bank account and theres about 20 ebay payments totaling £200 gone out. These payments started on the day I started using skybet.

    • MrBigChug 1 month ago

      Don’t sound like there’s anyway they could be linked. Unsure what’s going on with cashed out bets although they were unusually being settled manually last night because I had to contact to see why I still hadn’t been paid out

    Dundee v Rangers
    20 + Rangers booking points 6/4 Skybet
    Rangers under a wee bit of pressure to win this one could lead to it getting feisty if they don`t get it all their own way .

    Women Commebal under 20 championship
    Uruguay v Peru
    Ko 10pm.
    BTTS 5-6 NAP ⚽ HILLS.
    (only firm I see with a market on this game)

    These played 2 days ago both losing.
    Uruguay should be better and win but they aren’t world beaters.
    They have conceded in 12/13 games going back 2 years and rarely win.
    Peru have been diabolical in recent years but this year’s team are at least are scoring (all 3 games so far in the comp)
    Side bet
    Peru under 20 women to score 6-10
    Manchester city BTTS 8-15
    Double pays roughly 7-5

    Dundee vs Rangers

    Roofe to be carded @ 12/1 (bet365)

    Roofe starts tonight and while it’s debatable how long he will last on the pitch going by his injury record, to say his tackles are rash can be an understatement at times. Hasn’t played much football at all and at this price it’s worth a go.

    Fraserburgh vs Brora

    Over 3.5mgs @ 13/10 (bet365)

    Brora not at the same level this season and are nowhere near the title run in, but Fraserburgh are very much involved. It’s tight at the top, and goal difference could be very important the next few weeks, especially with Buckie thistle playing cannon fodder Strathspey thistle tonight at the same time. Fraserburgh certainly won’t stop going for goals here, and if on form are more than capable of covering the goal line themselves.

    Two bets I posted the other day didn’t land ❌❌ here’s hoping for better tonight.

    Good luck 🤞

    🎳 NIGHT OWL 🎳

    Millonairios v Junior
    Colombian Categoria Primera A.
    BTTS 11-10 bet365

    No BTTS in the last 10 head to head suggest another one Is impending especially as junior are shite away from home.

    It’s millionaires recent form that gives this a chance.
    BTTS in their last 9 games and they have conceded in their last 12 games.
    Junior have managed BTTS in their last 4 matches which is rare for them.

    Prediction 2-1

  22. noob gambler 1 month ago

    Let’s keep the losing going. Man City to win on penalties ( not actually placing the last 2. Just really want city to lose 😂)
