Another Erling Haaland Champions League masterclass booked Manchester City's place in the last eight last night alongside Inter Milan, and it would be a major upset if Real Madrid and Napoli didn't join them this evening.

Liverpool‘s campaign feels like it's been one step forward, two steps back all season, and had it not been for another impotent display at Bournemouth at the weekend they might've been traveling to the Bernabeu with at least a glimmer of hope.

The 7-0 win over Manchester United looked like it could've been a watershed moment in the Reds' season but they were quickly brought back down to earth by the Cherries and tonight need to find an improbable three goal win over the current European champions just to stay in their Champions League tie.

The 5-2 first leg defeat to Real Madrid was a chastening experience for Jurgen Klopp's men and it's more or less killed tonight's tie from a betting perspective. Liverpool don't look capable of winning, whereas Madrid don't need to win. And that's reflected in the betting where the hosts are unexpecetedly big-looking at 5/4 and the visitors 9/5.

The Reds do of course need to give it a go but that could play in to Madrid's hands. Karim Benzema looks likely to return after missing out at the weekend and Carlo Ancelotti's is too long in the tooth to assume the tie is over despite a three-goal lead. Based on the price Madrid look a bet tonight.

Napoli have one foot in the quarter-finals after their 2-0 first leg win in Frankfurt. The Italians have been the story of the season across Europe this term and look to have the Serie A title in their grasp.

Their 15 point lead at the top of the table means they can give due focus to their European adventure and who's to say that won't take them all the way to the final in Instanbul?

They were so impressive in the Group Stages where their only defeat came in the last five minutes of a dead rubber at Anfield and with a bit of luck in Friday's draw – they'd fancy their chances against the likes of Milan, Inter, Chelsea and Benfica – they could easily be semi-final bound. That makes them a very lively bet at 7/1 to lift the trophy and to make it a truly memorable season for Società Sportiva Calcio Napoli.

Tonight they look solid at 4/9 to cement their last-8 place with a win.

Double them up with Brighton who host shot-shy Crystal Palace in the M23 Derby. The Eagles haven't had a shot on target in 291 minutes in the Premier League and despite being 12th in the table Patrick Vieira's side look like they'll get sucked in to a relegation battle.

Brighton on the other hand are eyeing a place in Europe. The Seagulls have tasted defeat just once this year and look more than capable of picking up three points tonight, which would see Roberto De Zerbi's side draw level with Liverpool on points with a game in hand.

    think brighton 3-0 + 3-1 is the bet tonight. i might also throw 2-0 in there

    one of those bets on the betfair exchange for best price and another on the sportsbook or another bookie

    odds arent great but im sure i heard palace have had 1 shot on target in last 4 matches

  5. H 1 year ago

    PAYS – 2.38/1

  6. maccathered 1 year ago

    Brighton v Palace
    Palace double chance at 7/4 (NAP)
    Palace to win at 15/2
    Red card in the match at 4/1
    Palace come in to this game without registering a shot on target in their last 4 games or something along them lines, however they are difficult to beat. Brighton are strong at home but they haven’t done well against todays visitors who haven’t lost against the Seagulls in their last 7 meetings. Zaha is back so you would expect the shots on target stat to start picking up and Palaces win percentage when Zaha plays also picks up so 15/2 on Palace winning is simply to big given the fixture. I would expect this game to be heated so i’m also going to add a red card in to the mix.
    Best of luck
