Wednesday Champions League Multi - 13 March
Juve's Champions League dreams hang by a thread as rock-solid Atleti come to town. Can the Champions League throw up another miracle for Schalke?
Man City v Schalke 04
He scored a filthy free-kick in the first-leg, and I’m backing Leroy Sane to torment his former club once again.
With so many City players vying to stick the ball in the net it’s sometimes hard to pick one out, but Sane has started the last two league matches on the bench, and with so many crucial games coming up, you’d imagine Pep would want to utilise his squad to maximum effect.
The German to score at any time is my tip.
Juventus v Atletico Madrid
How many times have we seen José Giménez put in a miraculous last-ditch tackle? Or Jan Oblak make crucial, match-winning saves? The answer is: all the time.
Juventus will huff and puff, but I have so much faith in Simeone’s side. My best bet is for the score to be 0-0 at half-time, priced at $2.70.
Atleti have gone into the break goalless 12 times in La Liga this season, and will be more than happy to sit back, soak up pressure and look to pick Juventus off with an away goal which ends the tie for good.
You’d back Juventus to break down most sides in the world, but against Atleti I’m not so sure – making $2.70 a generous price for a goalless first half.
