IT was pure box office stuff at the Etihad Stadium between Man City and Real Madrid last week and punters will be hoping for more of the same tonight when the teams meet again.

City will be disappointed to be going to the Bernabeu with just a one goal advantage after leading by two on three occasions before it ended 4-3. As for Madrid they look as if they never know when they're beaten and of course with Karim Benzema in their ranks they can score goals in a heartbeat.

The bookies reckon it's still advantage Manchester City, rating them short 2/9 favourites to join Liverpool in the final compared to 31/10 (SBK) for Real. And it's a surprise to see Carlo Ancelotti's men as big as 21/10 to win on the night.

Let's not forget they've just been crowned La Liga champions once more and have lifted this famous old trophy more times than any other club. They've also turned around two first leg deficits in this season's competition already after losing to PSG and Chelsea so perhaps deserve a bit more respect, especially at home.

That's not to say Man City aren't capable of winning in Spain tonight but for all their brilliance going forward last week they managed just one more shot on target than their opponents. Of course for Pep Guardiola this is the prize that has eluded him since his arrival in Manchester and a draw does City so they're not worth backing at just over evens to win.

In the Draw No Bet market Madrid are 5/4 and that could be a good way to get them onside if you fancy them to push City this evening.

In the goals markets the bookies are rightly running scared and have Over 2.5 Goals at just 1/2. One more goal is 6/5 whilst a repeat of last week where Over 6.5 landed will tempt a few at 12/1. BTTS is 4/9 which isn't that bad a price, following last week's 4-3 thriller.

Man of the moment, Benzema, is 11/10 to find the net again and if Madrid are to progress he's the man most likely to get on the scoresheet.

    Some huge prices on the Rangers game for players to be booked anytime. If player doesn’t start, stake will be refunded.

    Aribo @ 9/1
    Lundstram @ 11/1
    Kamara @ 14/1
    Sakala @ 14/1

    Tavernier to score and be booked @ 50/1

    Considering Tav hits the penalties, I think 50/1 is a great bet.

    All prices with Unibet/888sport

    Real Madrid v Man City

    I predicted goals the last time these two sides met, with value in the Real Madrid goals. Not quite the 14/1 tonight but I’ll still be jumping on Real Madrid over 1.5TG at over evens and over 2.5TG’s at 4/1.

    Money to be made in the big game. Bet 365 are brave offering out free £5 bets. I’ll be jumping on a bet builder with money to be made.

    The only thing lacking in the first game was yellows, still both sides finished on one a piece and I’d expect cards this time round. Both managers will be reminding their players of the ‘taking one for the team’ kind of tackles which breaks up an attacking chance that always results in a yellow. I’ll be sinking my teeth into a couple of speculative BetBuilders that are player specific for yellows, shots and goalscorers when the teams are announced but here is one for starters.

    Over 1.5 throw ins first ten mins
    Real Madrid over 1.5TG
    Man City over 1.5TG
    Both teams 2+ yellows
    Over 2.5 Offsides in the game

    7/1, Bet365

    • Xrm 2 weeks ago

      On this with you mate but added under 9.5 free kicks in first half

  6. craigyboy 2 weeks ago

    SkyBet, 2/1 for De Bruyne and Benzema to have a SOT each.

  7. spursman 2 weeks ago

    Real Madrid v Man City
    Toni Kroos to be booked 5/2

    Has been booked by tonight’s referee on two occasions in recent years in Champions League games so having a small bet on a similar outcome tonight


    • spursman 2 weeks ago

      LOST….not enough play down his side of the pitch to get involved and got subbed off in the second half

  8. Kenny_boy2 2 weeks ago

    Looking for some help if possible?? I placed a 9fold accummulator bet last night with odds of 87/1 with bet365. I partially cashed out 1.05 of my £5 stake for £50.88 whilst the last leg (liverpool game) was still in play, leaving 3.95 to run on the rest of the bet. The last leg bet came in and i assummed that the remaining £3.95 would have been settled with a further pay out of circa £350, however bet365 are refusing to pay out as they state that i had settled all the previously settled bets, and the remaining stake was only on the bet still in play. I have done partial cash out before and never had this issue before. I have read their t+c’s and read that the remaining stake should be placed against the bet. Any help would be much appreciated!

    • anton 2 weeks ago

      What was the total cash out at the time , £250? out of a possible £550. Doesn’t seem right as you should have your £3.95 still running.

  13. georgie41 2 weeks ago

    Bet football for a very long time can anyone tell me the difference between a team to keep a clean sheet and to win to win to nil

    • spursman 2 weeks ago

      Keeping a clean sheet means a team not conceding a goal so a 0-0 is a winning bet….Winning to nil means your team must win the game and not concede so a 0-0 would be a losing bet (obviously) as would 2-1 or 3-1 for example

    Penalty taken in Madrid game 13/8 @ Ladbrokes. GL🍀

  19. craigyboy 2 weeks ago

    ****Just a word of warning with the previously mentioned Sky Bet offer of 2/1 for De Bruyne and Benzema 1+ SOT****

    Sky Bet have given me a £2 free bet and changed the already placed bet to odds of 1/10. £10 now returning £11. Apparently it wasn’t worded correctly, so I’d strongly advise cashing out on that and re-placing on the newly worded offer. There will be a lot of unhappy folk if they haven’t realised and it lands.

    • Yaap88 2 weeks ago

      Cheers for that! Put it on at work last night and didn’t even notice the wording! Cashed out and back on the proper bet

    🇧🇷 Altos v ABC 🇧🇷
    Brazilian Serie C
    🇧🇷 Both teams to score 10-11 (SKYBET) NAP/NB
    Double stake as just one pick on a poor card 🇧🇷

    Altos lost all 3 games so far but saw BTTS in all 3
    ABC scored in all their 3 games with 2 BTTS.

    Altos were in this league last season and have scored in 14 of their last 16 games overall.
    Altos won in the Brazilian cup at ABC in march 2-1 then scored last time out v Brazilian powerhouse team flamengo, losing 2-1 in the next round.

    ABC got promoted to this league last season and have started well.

    Prediction 1-1. 2-1. Or 1-2
    Not really a prediction is it ,😄
    2 or 3 match goals with both scoring hopefully
