Adrian Clarke’s Best Bet

When Napoli play, goals tend to follow.

Arguably the most impressive team througout Europe this season, Adrian feels they may have too much in attack for a soft Frankfurt defence.

On the flip side, Frankfurt themselves are more than capable of causing the Serie A Leaders plenty of problems.

With that in mind, Adrian thinks we see goals here.

Recommended Bet: Frankfurt vs Napoli – Over 2.5 goals (1.84)


Mark O’Haire’s Best Bet

As Mark pointed out, you rarely see a Leipzig or Man City game set at this total.

Beliving Leipzig have more than enough about them to find the net, and, as we are all too aware if City are at their best they are an outstanding attacking side.

Mark reckons this is too advantageous a betting proposition to turn down.

Recommended Bet: Leipzig vs Man City – Over 2.5 goals (1.76)

Miguel Delaney’s Best Bet

Miguel expects a tactical approach from Ancelloti on Tuesday Night.

Expect Madrid to keep the tie in balance for the return leg at home, and opt for a more conservative style of play at Anfield.

That in Miguel’s opinion makes it a big price on both teams not to find the net.

Recommended Bet: Liverpool vs Real Madrid – BTTS NO (2.48)
