Three of the four English teams to have made the quarter-finals of the Champions League are in action on Wednesday and the main drama is likely to be at the Etihad Stadium in Manchester.
City to win and both to score @ 29/20
Last week’s 1-0 win for Tottenham against Manchester City was a tactical masterclass from Mauricio Pochettino and he’ll need all of his acumen in the return game.
History is against City when you considered they have won just two of the seven European ties in which they have lost the away leg first. They are the huge favourites to win on the night at 4/13 and that is probably backed up by them having scored 16 times in their four home games in the Champions League this season.
Spurs have rediscovered their mojo, winning three times in a row and have kept clean sheets in all of those games.
They do have a habit of losing against teams around them, going down at Arsenal, Liverpool and Chelsea since winning at Manchester United and have shown in recent years that they have a habit of flopping on the big night.
Pochettino will set his side up well but City’s attacking ability suggests this could be an open game and over 3.5 goals handy at 5/4.
On a big night at the Etihad, the Citizens will come out on fire and look for them to squeeze through, with the 8/1 on 3-1 on the night a possibility.
Liverpool to win to zero @ 29/10
Of all the quarter-final ties, the one between Liverpool and Porto always looked the most one-sided and the Reds are unlikely to have too many issues when it comes to defending their 2-0 lead in Portugal.
Jurgen Klopp’s side won 5-0 at the Estádio do Dragão in last season’s competitions and goals from Naby Keita and Roberto Firmino saw them to a comfortable win on their own patch.
Sunday’s 2-0 in over Chelsea saw Liverpool take another step towards the Premier League title and Klopp will look for his side to get the job done early in this one ahead of a potential banana skin at Cardiff on Sunday.
Porto should not be underestimated having won their last six at home in this competition, with five of those successes coming to zero.
However, they looked a class below at Anfield and another 2-0 win for the Reds is handily priced at 15/2.
