20:00 Dortmund v Sevilla

Under 2.5 Goals

Sevilla aren’t in great shape coming into this second leg. Since their first leg encounter with Dortmund, Sevilla have only won one out of their last four games in league and cup competitions. Dortmund also come into this off the back of a defeat against Bayern, no disgrace in that, however. Sevilla are missing defender Jules Kounde who will be a big loss. Jadon Sancho, Raphael Guerreiro and Manuel Akanji will all be missing for Dortmund.

Sevilla have to be more clever here, compared to the way they set up in the first leg. They can wait until the second half to pounce. Under 2.5 goals could be the play here, if that is to be the case.

First Goalscorer: Lucas Ocampos

In the first goalscorer market, I’m going to go for Lucas Ocampos. Everyone will be drawn towards Haaland and rightfully so. His stats are incredible. However, I feel there could be more value out there. He will be on penalties, of which we see a lot more of in the Champions League, compared to the Premier League. That’s my hope here on this occasion.


20:00 Juventus v Porto

Porto or Draw

There’s work to do for Juventus here. Unlikely to catch Inter Milan in Serie A, there will be a lot of pressure on Andrea Pirlo going into this game. They will throw everything at it, and Porto’s centre-back partnership is in doubt.

Pepe and Chancel Mbemba are doubts for the game, so just keep an eye out for team news closer to kick-off. If they do start, go with Porto or The Draw in the Double Chance market. Porto are unbeaten in 14 consecutive away matches in all competitions. Porto were decent in the knockout stages and unlucky against the likes of Manchester City. So there’s no doubt they can mix it with the best of them here.

First Goalscorer – Alvaro Morata

I like Alvaro Morata here, if he does start. He didn’t in the opening leg. Morata scored two goals at the weekend against Lazio and was taken off after an hour, which makes me think that Pirlo was saving him for tonight’s encounter. He should be the go-to man for tonight’s must-win match.
