David Easson, Jon Driscoll and Gavin Hamilton - UEFA Champions League Preview - Wednesday 6th March

Wednesday’s Champions League Betting Preview

Commentator Jon Driscoll and world football expert Gavin Hamilton from SportBusiness assess this week’s European ties as we reach the Round of 16.


Manchester City (3) v FC Copenhagen (1)

There’s a little bit of hope here for Copenhagen. City dominated United in the derby at the weekend, but United still managed to score on the break and City have a history throughout the season of conceding goals like that. Copenhagen will have to hit them on the break and hope that they can find some sort of opportunity, but City let teams into games like this.

They've got the momentum building nicely towards the huge game against Liverpool, and even assuming the big names may not play, it’s going to be very tough for Copenhagen, but I think they can get something. I think the value is in both sides to score, but City will dominate the game and will win the game. Copenhagen are perfectly capable of scoring though.


Real Madrid (1) v RB Leipzig (0)

A missed opportunity for Leipzig, wasn't it? They had they had chances but kept missing them – or Lunin kept saving them. It is always very difficult to go to the Bernabeu, and Real Madrid will still be seething from the madness at Valencia at the weekend.  They will have a fully fit (and available) Jude Bellingham, wanting to make his mark here.  They have had an injury-hit season, particularly in defence. They're not perfect but I think they will play better than they did in the first game.

Brahim Diaz scored a fine goal and that's the difference between them at the moment. It’s not the most exciting bet in the world, but Real Madrid will win this leg of the tie as well against Leipzig.
