Champions League Predictions & Tips
Inter vs AC Milan Preview
Inter have a two goal lead heading into the second leg at the San Siro and the Nerazzurri will be hoping to finish the job on Tuesday night.
AC Milan were poor in the first leg, with Inter strangling their city rivals from start to finish and the Rossoneri will need to be much improved to stand any chance of victory.
History is on Inter’s side – you very rarely see a two-goal lead overturned in the second leg, and it’s even rarer when the leading team are at home.
Inter climbed up to third in the Serie A table, beating Sassuolo 4-2 over the weekend. Confidence is certainly high in the Nerazzurri camp and they can justify football betting odds.
Meanwhile, AC Milan slumped to a shock defeat against Spezia in their most recent league fixture and that does not bode well for their chances in this contest.
All signs point towards an Inter victory and it wouldn’t be a huge surprise to see Simone Inzaghi’s men book their place in the final on Tuesday night.
I like the price on Inter to win to nil. AC Milan offered very little in way of a goal threat in the first leg and Inter should be able to ride it out and advance to the showpiece.
Manchester City vs Real Madrid Preview
Manchester City and Real Madrid played out an entertaining draw at the Santiago Bernabeu last week.
While Real showed their Champions League pedigree once again, City are still Champions League betting favourites to qualify for this season’s final.
Pep Guardiola’s team added yet another Premier League win at the weekend, moving to within touching distance of a fifth title in six seasons.
Guardiola was able to shuffle his pack away to Everton, keeping some of his core players fresh for what promises to be an enthralling return leg at the Etihad Stadium.
Carlo Ancelotti had a similar luxury in Real’s win over Getafe with the La Liga title race all over.
Toni Kroos, Vinicius and Luka Modric came off the bench, while Karim Benzema and David Alaba had the day off.
This is set up for an absolute classic if the first leg was anything to go by. City know a win would put them within a couple of matches of an historic treble.
The success of Real’s season depends on this match after a poor campaign in La Liga.
Guardiola has bemoaned the scheduling of this fixture, with Real given an extra day off.
There was some fighting talk from the City manager too, though, as he predicted Erling Haaland will bounce back after being nullified by Antonio Rudiger in the first leg.
Caution was the main factor last week. Real were happy to absorb pressure. In the final 20 minutes or so, City were clearly happy to take a draw back to Manchester.
Playing at home, the defending Premier League champions will be on the front foot. If they take a lead, look for Real to open up a little.
Haaland should have more joy than he did at the Bernabeu. Real’s transition attack is going to create chances.
Both teams to score is a good bet here. We think City will get the job done, however, with Haaland’s cutting edge making the difference. Haaland to score, City to win and BTTS is the pick at 11/5.
