I think Real are underrated at 23/10 to qualify given City haven't looked great recently, but still most likely they lose tomorrow
I think that's a decent price, no one has any idea how City will line up at the back with Walker / Cancello definitely missing and possibly Stones out too, especially against an inform Vinicius

Going against the other opinions in this thread but I'm on City -1 pretty solid (for a mainstream bet). My CL bets been hit and miss this year though.
Madrid are a very very average side for me. They've been carried by Benzema and Modric both having heroic performances in last couple of rounds. I don't actually rate Chelsea that highly in terms of betting ratings and they deserved to go through against Madrid. Were comfortably better in Madrid and in the home leg it was just 2 incredible headers and a keeper error that Madrid scored from. Chelsea had the higher Xg for the first leg and had 3.1 Xg away. I don't think sitting deep suits Madrid at all and I think that is how they'll be forced to play tonight.

I think people forget how comfortable PSG were against Madrid. Madrid had 1 chance in the away game, a header from a corner just before HT and PSG Xg was 2.8. In the reverse Madrid created 1 decent chance before the Donnarumma error, which was a Benzema header. They couldn't lay a glove on PSG who aren't near City's level for me. I think there's a big re rate on how good Madrid actually are after being carried by two players the last two rounds.

Only way I can see them not winning is if Pep does his usual and plays a bizarre lineup or Benzema/Modric have another incredible game.

Agree with this but I think Walker and Cancelo are significant losses for City

Agree, I'd be on for a much bigger bet if they were playing but think they'll have too much going forward still. Walker the real loss for me with his recovery pace.

I’ve just had a big bet on Sir Gerhard 4.15 punchestown (Tues) no other reason it’s the class horse and I think it’ll win, (5/6) just now.

Very strange race that. Patrick has done Townend absolutely no favours running across him twice and almost helping Kennedy on MP box him in twice. Very poor ride from Townend here I think.

Refund. Madrid have some weird voodoo magic in this comp. Not sure how they've got away with a 1 goal loss there.

Frankfurt 3/1 to win against a west ham team with no centre-backs.. They raced into a 3-0 lead away to Barcelona.

This bet seems good value to me.

Especially on bet 365 where you get early pay out when they go 2 goals ahead.

Liverpool -1.5 @ 1.94 for me tonight.

Think Liverpool will be too much for Villareal (insightful I know but they're a much more solid team at both ends of the pitch than Bayern and I think this is a step too far for this Villarreal side, who lost to us under Carrick!

Expect Liverpool to try and kill the tie as much as possible tonight allowing them to possibly rest 2/3 players in the return leg.

Tomorrow I'm all over Chelsea @ 2.25

We're missing players all over the pitch and this will be a really tough test obviously. I expect them to just have too much experience/nous for us and can see them winning comfortably 2-0/3-1.

I think Matic might be a bit of an issue too, bound to be feeling the effects of many games in quick succession at his age.

Allaho got me my Sir Gerhard money back on Facile Vega hopefully wins for us.
Ciel de Niege let me down badly. Had a £50 cashout, or £191 for the 4 fold winnings, so I let it ride (taking my other bet below into account). Didn't even come close.

Luckily I had the skybet boosted 4 fold (£5 at 14/1) with The Nice Guy, Allaho, Facile Vega and Liverpool to win, the horses all won, so that'll soften the blow when Liverpool destroy Villareal in a bit.
