As the Champions League moves into the quarter-finals, you can expect some exciting games in the upcoming month of April. The first leg of the quarter-finals will take place on April 9, 2019 and April 10, 2019 with two games on each day. The outcome of each game will impact the second leg of the quarter-finals before progression into the semi-finals.
The Champions League has four games in the first leg of the quarter-finals. On April 9, 2019, you will see Tottenham play against Manchester City. The day will also have a second game with Liverpool playing against Porto. The games will set the tone for the second leg of the quarter-finals and don’t be surprised if both games are finely poised heading into the 2 nd legs.
April 10, 2019 will see two more games. Manchester United playing Barcelona and Ajax will play against Juventus. The games start at the same time on both days to ensure no team has any advantage over another.
Expectations for the Games
Whilst each quarter final match has a favorite, all games are finely balanced. As previous years has proved and the 4-1 Ajax victory at the Bernabeu clearly demonstrates, over two legs, any team can beat another team. The odds for the upcoming games give an idea of
expectations, but when have the bookies ever got them all correct?
Given the fine form they’ve been in all season, Manchester City are the favorite to win the Champions League this season. Closely following them are Juventus and then Barcelona. Given Man City’s luck in avoiding one of the major forces in European football in the quarters, the odds for them were quickly slashed. However, expect the odds to change after the 1 st leg depending on results.
Placing Your Bets
When deciding to bet on the Champion’s League and the upcoming matches, you want to consider using a no deposit free bet to limit your risk. A free bet has a distinct advantage when compared to other betting options. It allows you to take a higher risk when you ‘re not certain about the outcome of a match or want to hedge your bet with a few different bets on a few teams.
Most punters bet with their heart! Instead, focus on the teams with the highest chance of winning based on their performance throughout the season up to this stage. If you know that a key player is injured or suspended and will not be playing, that should factor into one’s thinking. If Kane is missing for Tottenham, odds on Spurs winning will be very different.
Wait until the last moment to place a bet. Ideally, wait until teams are announced, so you really have the full picture of events. Whilst no one knows with certainty who will qualify for the semi-finals, everyone is certain that these games are bound to be exciting!
