Home advantage holds key for Atleti


Atletico Madrid take on Juventus in one of the standout ties in the Champions League last-16 on Wednesday and Manchester City are in action as they head to Schalke.

Atletico Madrid to win by one goal @ 11/4

Los Colchoneros and the Italian giants have both come close in Europe in recent years but neither has taken the top prize. One of these teams has been involved in four of the last five finals, and Atleti can seize a slim advantage in the first leg on Wednesday,

The Spanish outfit have been in mixed form of late and were not particularly convincing in their 1-0 win at Rayo Vallecano over the weekend.

However, they should be motivated for this European assignment as the final will take place at their Wanda Metropolitano home.

Atleti may have to settle for a one-goal lead going into the second leg though. Juve lost twice in the group stage and both of those defeats were by a single goal and this tie could well still be finely poised even if the La Liga side do hold an advantage going into the second leg.

Sergio Aguero first goalscorer @ 12/5

Manchester City should be too strong for German opponents Schalke in their last-16 task and Sergio Aguero can open the scoring at the Veltins Arena.

The Argentina striker has been in devastating form of late, with nine goals in his last six appearances – and he was given the weekend off for the FA Cup win over Newport so should be fresh for this Champions League clash.

Aguero has opened the scoring in three of his last six appearances and can break the deadlock again as City bid to secure a quarter-final spot.
