Champions League Tips: August 12th

Atalanta vs Paris Saint-Germain

Gian Piero Gasperini has a selection headache ahead of Wednesday’s contest. Atalanta have been plagued by injury woes ahead of their first appearance in the Champions League quarter-finals.

The Serie A outfit lit up the Italian league this season, notching an incredible 98 goals in 38 matches. Going forward, Atalanta can hold their own against the best teams in Europe.

Meanwhile, PSG have played just two competitive games since mid-March. Those matches against St-Etienne and Lyon should have the French side raring to go and it would be foolish to write them off in our 888 tips.

Kylian Mbappe is widely regarded as the most talented youngster in world football and he will be a popular pick in 888 sport predictions to score on Wednesday night.

Our Expert Pick: Both teams to score looks likely in this contest but PSG’s class could shine through. 5/2 for the Ligue 1 champions to win and both teams to score is our best bet.

Champions League Tips: August 12th

RB Leipzig vs Atletico Madrid

With the Bundesliga campaign finishing in June, Leipzig had to arrange a friendly against Wolfsburg to prepare for this clash. However, the German side will be fresh going into this contest.

Having finished third in the Bundesliga table, Leipzig have exceeded expectations over the course of the season and many football betting tips will fancy them to prevail.

Diego Simeone is the master at winning ugly and Atletico could be too strong for Leipzig in this quarter-final. Experience could play a part in the outcome of this tie, particularly over one leg behind closed doors.

Atletico are underrated in so many ways but their success is built on defensive stability. If the La Liga outfit score first, it could spell curtains for Leipzig’s Champions League hopes.

Our Expert Pick: We’re expecting a cagey affair on Thursday night. Atletico have been here and done it before though and the draw half-time/Atletico full-time is worth a bet at 9/2.
