Adrian Clarke’s Best Bet

Adrian was very optimistic about Porto’s chances this week of overturning their 1-0 deficit to Inter Milan.

The Dragao should be bouncing on Tuesday night, and a Porto team who have been in tremendous form domestically should feel the full effect of the crowd.

Adrian thinks Porto on the draw no bet line is the point of attack.

Recommended Bet: Porto +0.0 vs Inter (1.97)

Mark O’Haire’s Best Bet

Mark has been banging the drum in regard Napoli all season, and the side from Naples have given him no reason to waiver.

For all intents and purposes, they should have this tie sealed up headed into the second leg after a dominant performance in Frankfurt.

Mark is looking to find a pro-Napoli angle here and think’s the half time/full time price is too big to ignore.

Recommended Bet: Napoli HT/FT  vs Frankfurt (2.22)

Liverpool have been left a mammoth task to overturn a 5-2 deficit to reigning champions Real Madrid.
