Champions League Predictions: UCL Correct Score Tips

Chelsea vs FC Porto

Chelsea are in a commanding position heading into Tuesday’s second leg and Blues fans will have one eye on a semi-final clash with Real Madrid or Liverpool.

It has been some time since Chelsea competed at the business end of Europe’s elite club competition but the Blues look destined to battle it out in the semi-finals.

Porto face an uphill struggle to advance to the next round and the writing could be on the wall for the visitors – football betting underdogs will find it tough to back the away side.

The under 2.5 goals line looks well priced at 5/6. Chelsea will try to take the sting out of this one and a Blues goal will all but end any chance of a shock result.

Bet of the day: Under 2.5 goals (5/6)

Correct score tips: Chelsea 1-0 Porto (6/1)

Paris Saint-Germain vs Bayern Munich

PSG are Champions League betting favourites to advance to the semi-finals and Mauricio Pochettino’s men will take some stopping after their first leg exploits.

Bayern will need to score twice to stand any chance of progression and that is assuming Paris Saint-Germain fail to score. That does NOT happen often at the Parc des Princes…

However, Bayern Munich are defending champions and the Bavarians won’t give up their crown lightly. Expect the Bundesliga giants to throw the kitchen sink at their opponents.

The visitors will need Robert Lewandowski to be fully fit for this encounter – he could be the difference between success and failure.

Expect fireworks on Tuesday night. Over 3.5 goals is the way to go once again; neutrals won’t want to miss this one.

Bet of the day: Over 3.5 goals (EVS)

Correct score tips: PSG 2-2 Bayern Munich (9/1)

Borussia Dortmund vs Manchester City

It looked like Marco Reus had turned this tie in Dortmund’s favour but a late Phil Foden goal means that City have a lead to defend in Wednesday’s second leg.

The Bundesliga outfit will feel hard done by after a Jude Bellingham goal was controversially overturned by the officials and Dortmund will be looking for revenge.

Manchester City are still hunting an unprecedented quadruple and Pep Guardiola’s men will be starting to feel the pinch now as each game grows in importance.

With the Premier League title more or less sewn up, City can afford to focus primarily on the upcoming European clash and that could be decisive come Wednesday night.

Dortmund will huff and puff but City will see chances fall their way. Both teams to score is the way to go for punters.

Bet of the day: Both teams to score (8/15)

Correct score tips: Dortmund 1-2 Man City (7/1)

Liverpool vs Real Madrid

Another famous Anfield comeback is required. Liverpool have shone under the Champions League lights in the past but an empty stadium does Jurgen Klopp’s side no favours.

Mohamed Salah’s away goal gives Liverpool a glimmer of hope and the first goal at Anfield will be crucial to the outcome of this tie, particularly if it goes to the hosts.

Real are in control of this tie heading into the second leg but Zinedine Zidane’s side will be taking nothing for granted ahead of Wednesday’s clash.

The visitors are the most successful club in Champions League history and Los Blancos fans will be urging their team to pick up where they left off in the first leg.

Our expert correct score prediction is for Liverpool to win but the Reds will still fall short in their pursuit of reaching the Champions League semi-finals.

Bet of the day: Liverpool to win (19/20)

Correct score tips: Liverpool 2-1 Real Madrid (11/2)


Champions League Winner Odds 2021:

Alex McMahon: Bayern Munich were a cut above their European rivals last season but the chasing pack may catch up with the Bundesliga giants in 2020/21.

Liverpool finished 18 points clear of MANCHESTER CITY (4/1) in the Premier League but the Blues are my pick to go and claim their first Champions League success.

Pep Guardiola’s recent record in the competition has come under scrutiny but the City boss is entering the final year of his contract at the Etihad Stadium and could go out on a high.

Champions League winner odds have City as joint-favourites alongside Bayern and, with some luck on the injury front and a couple of signings, Pep’s men look primed for European glory.

Yes, City were comprehensively beaten by Lyon in last season’s competition but the Premier League giants will learn a lot from that defeat.

With players coming back from injury and a hunger to succeed at the highest level of European football, City will take some stopping and Pep’s side will be popular in 888 football predictions.


Champions League Outright Tips:

Sam Cox: It feels boring to say BAYERN MUNICH (4/1) will defend their Champions League crown, but it’s very hard to look past the Bundesliga champions.

Loaded with pre-peak talent and with Robert Lewandowski showing no signs of decline, the Bavarian superclub are going to take some stopping this term.

Bayern are the 4/1 joint-favourites at the time of writing, and they’re well deserving of that status. The price might seem short in a knockout tournament, but they’re better value than Manchester City at the same price and PSG at 6/1.

Leroy Sane’s arrival gives further attacking depth should they suffer injuries. Alphonso Davies, Leon Goretzka, Serge Gnabry are only going to get better.

Away from the favourites, Atletico Madrid look a decent option at 30/1. The 2019/20 season was difficult for them, and they struggled to score goals, but they knocked Liverpool out of the Champions League and remain a tough team to beat.

That price seems generous given Chelsea are 17/1 and Barcelona are 15/1.
