City ready to seal Schalke success


Two late away goals have given Manchester City the platform needed to ensure they eliminate Schalke to progress to the Champions League quarter-finals.

Trailing 2-1 with five minutes to play in the first leg in Gelsenkirchen the Citizens were in a slight spot of bother, only for Leroy Sane and Raheem Sterling to find the net and make the return a much more positive prospect.

Raheem Sterling to score last goal of the game @ 9/2

Sterling is in top goalscoring form heading into the Tuesday action, having completed a hat-trick in the 3-1 league win over Watford at the weekend.

And, in the last three games in which he has found the net, he has scored the last goal of the game – so that option rather than 20/21 to score at any time could offer a decent return.

Man City to win by two goals @ 12/5

The Citizens have conceded just one goal in their last three games and should be too strong for Schalke at the Etihad, with the hosts much fancied to win with some ease.

If that is the case, then City to win to zero at 10/13 may also offer the opportunity for a small return.

Cristiano Ronaldo to score first goal of the game @ 5/2

The second game of the evening sees Juventus having to try and overturn a two-goal deficit against an Atletico Madrid side who scored twice in the final 12 minutes of the first leg in the Spanish capital.

Former Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo simply has to fire for Juve if they are to reach the quarter-finals, with the Italians 3/1 to make the last eight.

The bad news for Juve is that Ronaldo has scored just once in his last four appearances against Atleti, a record which has to improve if a turnaround is to be engineered.

The Portuguese striker is 4/5 to score at any time, so 5/2 to net the first goal of the game offers a greater return, while Juve are 4/9 to score first – something which is a must if they are to progress.
