Ronaldo, Real & Raheem In Action Thursday


Real Madrid v Manchester City

Thursday, 7am AEDT

Real Madrid hold all the cards from an historical perspective and would seem to be relatively good value in the Win-Draw-Win market.

The Spanish giants are unbeaten in four matches with Manchester City and they’ve won their last four Champions League Round of 16 games against English competition. They’ve also won 15 of their last 22 Knockout UCL games at the Santiago Bernabeu.

However, the injury to Eden Hazard and the return of Raheem Sterling at City could bode well for the visitors. Sterling ($2.63), Gabriel Jesus ($2.40) and Sergio Aguero ($2.10) as Anytime Goalscorers are all worth a look.

$2.75 Real Madrid
$3.50 Draw
$2.40 Manchester City

Lyon v Juventus

Thursday, 7am AEDT

Lyon are heavy underdogs in this one, but if you’re looking for some extra value, seven of their last eight home Champions League games have ended in a draw.

However, Juventus has arguably the best player in the world, Cristiano Ronaldo, who has scored in his last eight away games. He’s $1.83 as an Anytime Goalscorer here and $5.50 to score 2 Or More Goals.

Keeping our ‘first legs tend to be cagey’ theory, this could be relatively low-scoring, but there might be some value in Juventus to Win and Both Teams to Score at $4.50.

$4.00 Lyon
$3.10 Draw
$1.91 Juventus
