Spurs v Real Madrid Betting Tips

Spurs v Real Madrid preview

It was supposed to be the continuation of Tottenham’s amazing Champions League journey. Harry Redknapp’s side had already beaten last season’s champions Inter as well as neighbours AC Milan and had nothing to fear to a trip to the Bernabeu to face a Real Madrid side whose recent record in the Champions League was nothing short of awful for a team of their stature.

Man United v Chelsea Betting Tips

Manchester Utd v Chelsea preview

When two teams have locked horns as often as Manchester United and Chelsea have over recent years, it shouldn’t be too much of a surprise that they end up cancelling each other out and that a match would result in virtual deadlock.

Such was the case at Stamford Bridge where United sneaked an excellent (and, in some quarters, unexpected) first leg victory thanks to Wayne Rooney’s seventh goal in eight games.

Chelsea v Man United Betting Tips

Preview – Chelsea v Manchester Utd

With three English teams in the Champions League quarter final draw, there was always a strong chance that two would meet in the last eight. So, in a repeat of the dramatic 2008 final, Chelsea face Manchester United for a place in the last four of the European Cup.

Real Madrid v Tottenham Betting Tips

Preview – Real Madrid v Spurs

If you’re not one of the so-called ‘Big Four’, securing a spot in the Champions League over recent years has been tough. However, Spurs managed it last season and have certainly made the most of their European adventures this time around.

Man Utd v Marseille Betting Tips

Champions League – Manchester United v Marseille

Considering what was at stake, it was a surprise that the first clash between Marseille and Manchester United at the Stade Velodrome was such a drab affair. United will point to the fact that they were hardly at full strength for the first leg of their Champions League, last-16 tie in the south of France so a goalless draw was probably a satisfactory result for Sir Alex Ferguson’s team, even though they rarely worked home keeper Steve Mandanda. The emphasis will be on the Red Devils to attack at Old Trafford and they really will have no excuses if they fail to reach the quarter-finals.

Barcelona v Arsenal Betting Tips and Predictions

Champions League – Barcelona v Arsenal

The Nou Camp is the last place you want to visit with an under-strength squad but an injury jinx appears to have struck Arsenal at just the wrong time as they look to defend the fruits of their hard-fought victory over the Primera Liga champions at the Emirates last month.

Theo Walcott has already missed the Carling Cup Final and he now faces sitting out potentially the biggest game in the Gunners’ recent history after suffering an ankle injury against Stoke last month.

Spurs v AC Milan Betting Tips

Champions League – Tottenham v AC Milan

After the euphoria of Spurs’ magnificent performance in the San Siro, it’s important Harry Redknapp’s team don’t believe they are already through to the quarter-finals of the Champions League ahead of the second leg of their last-16 tie with AC Milan.

Milan’s arch-rivals Inter won the competition last year and Italian sides in general have a reputation of grinding out results in Europe when they need them most.

Champions League Last 16 – Second Leg

The first wave of second leg matches in the last-16 stage of this year’s Champions League gets underway on Tuesday night with Barcelona (3/10) looking to avenge their 2-1 first leg defeat at the hands of Arsenal (8/1). Since then, Theo Walcott and Robin van Persie have sustained injuries and both players will miss the trip to the Nou Camp. Perhaps more disturbing for Arsenal fans is the doubts surrounding their influential captain Cesc Fabregas, who missed the recent Carling Cup Final through injury and is 50/50 to make the starting eleven against Barcelona.

Champions League Last 16 Betting

The remaining first-leg fixtures in the Last 16 of the Champions League takes place this week with all eyes firmly focused on the San Siro as last year’s finalists Bayern Munich (12/5) clash with the current Champions League holders Inter Milan (23/20). The Italian side are a dominant force in front of their home fans and they must continue that feat against a Munich side that scored 16 goals in the group stage and have netted 21 goals in their last six games. Inter have also been firing on all cylinders of late so a high-scoring affair is expected.

Arsenal v Barcelona Betting Tips

Champions League – Arsenal v Barcelona

I can’t ever remember an away side being odds on to win at the Emirates before, but such is the ability and reputation of Barcelona that the Catalan giants are given a 4/5 quote to take a lead back to the Nou Camp next month for the second leg of their Champions League last 16 tie.

Arsenal fans need no reminding, of course, of how Pep Guardiola’s team embarrassed the Gunners last season.

Champions League Betting – Round of 16

Road to Wembley takes centre stage next week

According to BBC presenter Gary Lineker, Tottenham Hotspur’s (16/5) appearance in the Champions League this season has been a breath of fresh air. I’m sure the Rossoneri fans will concur after they see their AC Milan (5/6) side take on Spurs in the last 16 of the Champions League at the San Siro next Tuesday night. After such a long time in limbo, it’s fair to say that Tottenham have exploded onto the European scene, however, Milan are the masters of European football and despite not finding the net as often as they’d like in the Champions League this season, they’ll be content at keeping them out at the other end.

Champions League 2010/2011 – Betting Update

The draw for the last 16 of the Champions League has been made and it sees the current holders Inter Milan (20/1) continue their title defence against German club side Bayern Munich (20/1) – the team they beat in last year’s final! Inter’s bitter rivals and seven-time European Cup winners AC Milan (20/1) are also through to the knockout phase and you’d fancy them to easily account Champions League virgins Tottenham Hotspur (20/1), a side that’s already surpassed all expectation by reaching this stage of the competition.
