Barcelona can strike the first blow in their Champions League semi-final tie with Liverpool and Portland Trail Blazers can fight back in their NBA playoff series with Denver Nuggets on Wednesday.
Barcelona cruised through their home leg against Manchester United in the previous round of the Champions League and can claim another win and a clean sheet over Premier League opposition when they face Liverpool this evening.
The Reds have been in excellent scoring form with 20 in their last seven games but they have occasionally struggled on the road, having drawn blanks at Old Trafford and Everton not too long ago.
Barca will be desperate not to concede an away goal, ahead of a tough trip to Anfield, and they have been solid at home at the back with four clean sheets in their last five games – including wins to nil over Atletico Madrid and United.
This should be a closely contested semi-final and Barcelona can seize the advantage with a win and a shut out tonight.
A 1-0 win for the Catalan giants at 6/1 also appeals in the exact score market.
Denver Nuggets claimed a 121-113 win over Portland Trail Blazers in Game 1 of their NBA playoff series and the visitors will be looking to respond in the second game tonight.
Portland will be confident of winning the next two games at home, but they know they have to win in Denver at least once if they are to progress to the Conference Finals.
The Nuggets had the best home record in the NBA in the regular season and could still prove too strong for the Blazers, but I’m expecting Game 2 to be a closer affair and the visitors look a strong option with a +4 handicap.
