Champions League: Quarter Final Second Legs Best Bets

5 min

Producer Ryan Cahill is on hand to summarise the best bets from Mark O’Haire, Adrian Clarke and Miguel Delaney from this week’s four Quarter Final Second Legs on our Champions League podcast.

There is arguably no better watch in all of football than second-leg ties of the Champions League Knockout stages, and this week should be no different.

A few sides may have massive mountains to climb (Bayern, Chelsea), but as the Champions League all too often reminds us, anything can happen.

Enjoy the UCL action this week, best of luck if having a punt, and please do remember to gamble responsibly!

Adrian Clarke’s Best Bet

If you are not electing to watch a particular game this midweek, Inter vs Benfica may just be the one to avoid, according to Adrian.

He expects a gritty, shrewd approach from the Italians in this one, with a 2-0 lead from the first leg sitting nicely in their back pocket.

Recommended Bet: Inter vs Benfica – Under 2.5 Goals (1.97)

Mark O’Haire’s Best Bet

On the opposite end of the scale, Mark is going back to the well with the overs angle in Naples.

Buoyed by their returning ultras, he expects an aggressive and attacking approach from the runaway leaders in Italy.

Which may also play into Milan’s hands, who will look to pick them off on the counter, expect entertainment in this one!

Recommended Bet: Napoli vs AC Milan – Over 2.5 Goals (2.18)

Miguel Delaney’s Best Bet

Miguel is taking us to the Allianz for his best bet this week.

Like Mark, Miguel is opting for an overs angle. Although Bayern failed to find the net last week, Man City certainly did not.

Expect City to take advantage if and when Bayern decide to overcommit on Tuesday evening. With the Germans more than capable of creating their fair share.

Recommended Bet: Bayern vs Man City – Over 3.5 Goals (2.4)

Chelsea (0) vs Real Madrid (2) (Tue 20:00)

  • Mark – Real Madrid +0.0 (1.84)
  • Adrian – Real Madrid (2.54) 
  • Miguel – Real Madrid (2.54)

Napoli (0) vs Milan (1) (Tue 20:00)

  • Mark – Over 2.5 Goals (2.18)
  • Adrian – Napoli & Over 1.5 (2.28)
  • Miguel – Napoli & Over 1.5 (2.28)

 Inter (2) vs Benfica (0) (Wed 20:00)

  • Mark – No bet
  • Adrian – Under 2.5 (1.97) 
  • Miguel – No bet

Bayern (0) vs Man City (3) (Wed 20:00)

  • Mark – Bayern +0/0.5 (1.82)
  • Adrian – Bayern +0.0 (2.12) 
  • Miguel – Over 3.5 (2.4)


  • Mark – Chelsea 0-2 Real Madrid (14.50)
  • Adrian – Bayern 3-1 Man City (22.0) 
  • Miguel – Napoli 3-1 Milan (18.5)
