Back Bayern, Atletico, Barca and PSG in Champions League acca
Fancy a Champions League acca? Back Bayern Munich, Atletico Madrid, Barcelona and PSG all to win their last 16 second leg matches in 90 minutes at home, and be rewarded with outstanding odds of 10/3 with Coral.
All four sides are leading their respective ties by away goals without reply. Bayern are two up against Arsenal, Atletico hold a 1-0 aggregate advantage over AC Milan, Barca are beating Manchester City 2-0 and PSG put four past Leverkusen.
If that quartet of healthy scorelines aren’t reason enough for punters to pile money on this fantastic offer, here are some other arguments why this is a worthy investment.
Bayern Munich v Arsenal
This may have been an away win this time last season for the Gunners, but that is the only victory they have earned at the Allianz.
Aaron Ramsey and Theo Walcott were in Arsene Wenger’s XI then. Injury precludes both from taking part now.
Pep Guardiola’s Bayern are odds-on for a win on the night at 3/10 and 1/50 to qualify for the quarters. Since playing the first leg, Munich have averaged five goals a game in demolitions of Hannover, Schalke and Wolfsburg.
Arsenal, meanwhile, boast a mean of three per match, so even if they can score at the Allianz then back Bayern to outdo them. Odds on a home win and both teams finding the net are a decent 9/5.
Atletico Madrid v AC Milan
Clarence Seedorf’s Rossoneri have lost their last two matches without scoring. It’s three in four including the first leg of this tie. Atletico are unbeaten since then, recording two wins a draw.
Diego Simeone’s side are odds-on for victory this home leg at 4/9 and to advance to the last eight at 1/12. Brazilian-born Spanish striker Diego Costa is the difference between Atletico and Milan at the moment. You can back him to score first at 10/3.
In his absence last time out, David Villa bagged a brace. Take odds of 6/1 on him netting two or more again here.
Barcelona v Manchester City
Champions League second-favourites at 7/2 Barca have scored 10 goals in their last two home games, conceding just once. Manuel Pellegrini, meanwhile, has won one trophy, but lost out on the prospect of another as FA Cup holders Wigan Athletic embarrassed City again.
Tata Martino’s Catalans are odds-on for another home win at 4/7 and to qualify for the quarters at 1/25 here. City will be missing paceless wonder Martin Demichelis from defence after his sending off in the first leg. As young Matija Nastasic is injured, Joleon Lescott may partner Vincent Kompany at centre back.
Barcelona have shared home goals around six different players in recent matches. Prolific icon Lionel Messi is odds-on, but there is better value in the scorer markets on Neymar, Pedro and Alexis Sanchez at 5/4 apiece to net anytime.
PSG v Bayer Leverkusen
Sam Hyppia’s side last tasted victory on February 7th, slumping to five straight defeats and a battling draw since. PSG, meanwhile, have averaged three goals a game since winning the first leg 4-0.
Laurent Blanc’s boys are odds-on at 4/11 to heap more woe on Leverkusen by adding to that aggregate scoreline and beating them at the Parc des Princes.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic is chasing the Champions League Golden Boot, so back him at 5/2 to net first on home turf.
Argentine attacker Ezequiel Lavezzi bagged a brace in PSG’s win over Bastia last time out. He has attractive odds of 6/1 to score another double or more here.
